Ok so Bosh just tied Vince Quitters' Toronto Raptors (yes we have an NBA team) Record of most all star games (5) with his recent selection to this year's let in rain event in Vegas. While Bosh also passed Wince (not a typo) on the All-Time scoring record, this year is bitter sweat. While we signed Hedo Turkoglu to complement Bosh and the kid Bargnani, things started out in typical Toronto Tank Nation fashion. We have however turned it on as of late, with wins over San Antonio, Dallas, the Lakers, Heat and no recently New York (hey you got to beat the bad teams too).
And while we are going to the playoffs and we are going to nail it all and win it, I can't help but think of how we are going to lose another star this year (insert Roy Halladay comment here) Ugh.
When were the good ole days when stars used to flock to Toronto who didn't play hockey. Guys like Roger Clemens, Dave Winfield, Ricky Williams, Paul Molitar, David Cone.
Well anyways, keep doing your thing CB4 you lanky snoop dogg look a like. If you're bags are packed at least leave a ring or something shiny on your way out.
And if you do sign elsewhere...CAN YOU SEE LEBRON IN TORONTO!!!!

And while today is my birthday, one cannot escape the power of tradition. Therefore top 5 Mondays must go on...
Top five things from this weekend...
5. Seeing Brett Farve blow ANOTHER game...hang em up already!
4. Seeing a coconut fall and smash out the back window of a new BMW. (hey falling coconuts kill more people than lightening, or is that shark attacks? I can never remember)
3. Going to the Leaf game with my girl, Billy, and his girl. Would be higher up but I hate Tomas Vokoun (see pic above you non hockey fans)...
2. Going gator hunting in the everglades.
1. Spending an entire weekend with her.
O man, today is my 25th birthday, and already i feel old. I can't believe this has come so fast. Sheesh my back and knees hurt. It really is funny though when you think of what you thought your life would be at 25 when you were say, 12... I mean I thought I would be the starting pitcher for the Blue Jays by now haha. Anyways, it can really get depressing when you see other people and how responsible their lives are or where by 25. I mean gasp, my father had me at 25. And he had a wife (my mom). And he had a house. And he had a dog. O yea, I have a dog too, so I am not a total bumb. Anyways, waking up and turning 25 really does not feel any different. Yea my work desk may be decorated to embarrass me, and my facebook wall will be covered with happy birthday messages from my real friends, but it really is just another day. I spent the past weekend in MEEAMi and had an awesome time. Well minus the Leaf loss, but by now I am used to that kind of thing...
It was really nice going to a new city with the new gf, and also seeing old teammates. My experience to south beach could have been better, we got a torrential down pour within 2 hours of being there. All in all, today is my golden birthday, and how do I plan on celebrating? Work.
O yea maybe I will play with the puppy and watch the Cuse game. Told you it was just another day...just another day older and deeper in debt. Where is my cane??

Air Canada JR!!! Finally we have another high flyer since Vince Carter (quitter) left and broke my heart. And T-mac left before him :o(. Anyways, it is about time my loyal readers, that I enlighten you on a young DeMar DeRozan of the Toronto Raptors. I know many of you hate basketball, especially the NBA, but who doesn't like the slam dunk contest? Honestly. And who is going to win this year? Demar Derozan. And he has to go twice, once in the Rookie Challenge (Feb. 12th) and then after he beats Eric Gordon, he will win it all in the real slam at the All-Star game. So who is this kid anyway?
DeMar was taken 9th overall in last year's draft by my squad out of the University of Southern California. He is 6'7 and 220 pounds. Rumor has it he was dunking as early as 6th grade. He left college early to make more money and take care of his mother who has lupus ( I have no clue what that is, but it sounds awful). Now the 20 year old is making 2.2 million dollars a year based on his rookie contract (and you thought baseball players were overpaid). Anyways, he is the man, and hes going to nail it at the dunk contest.
No, I cannot run like the wind blows. However, I have seen some crazy things in my life, from my dog pooping out strait dirt, MA having a republican senator, or the Bengals making the playoffs, nothing really surprises me anymore. But sometimes things happen that still blow my mind. Last weekend my girlfriend stuck ICE CREAM in the Microwave to defrost it. That is like taking the paint off a Cadillac, or getting a breast reduction. Last night, I ran a yellow light only to have two loser cops sitting right there. Of course I got pulled over, and much to the cops disdain the cans that were in my front seat did not belong to Bud lite, but rather Mt. Dew, and the passenger in my front seat was not a missing child or hooker, but my dog. And if any plants were in my car, they were not of the illegal kind and most likely mold. When he asked me what color the light was when I passed through the intersection, I am sure Yellow was not the answer he wanted to hear. (I hope it was yellow, I am color blind, but somehow I didn't think that that was a good answer.)
Long story short I saw two things this weekend that I have never in my life seen. Me getting out of a ticket, and someone defrosting Ice Cream.
2 more sleeps til the 305!!!!!

To my fans out there, I want to apologize for my lack of input into my blog of late. My computer is M.I.A and I have been kind of busy with a new certain someone... I have a new power cord on the way, and will resume my posts in the next couple of days. Keep your head up guys, it will get better soon....

So I wake up on this Weds morning, dragging my feet a little. Last night quite possibly could have been the worst day of my life. Team Canada lost to America in Junior Hockey in Overtime, to lose the gold medal. WE HAD WON 6th STRAIT. What made it worse was Jordan Eberle (Now Canada legend) scored two goals to bring it to the sudden death frame with only 4 minutes to go in the game. My emotions went from pure ex to utter heartbreak. They should take their lives for shaming our country. It is OUR GAME. I feel like my little brother just destroyed me in everything i am good at. MY LITTLE BROTHER!!!! What made it worse was I watched the game with a kid obsessed with American hockey. Needless to say it was the best day of his life.
At least I have the real Olympics to look forward too....

Another Monday, and this time no football. Ugh. Regardless here is my top five people I would love to be if I was not me.
5. Tom Brady- Super bowl rings, Mvp trophies, Giselle. Enough said.
4. Tim Mcgraw- Movie star, Country Singer, son of pro baseball player. O and Faith...
3. Adam Duritz- Lead singer of my fav band. Amazing live singer, romantically linked to Monica, Rachel, and Monica Potter.
2. Derek Jeter- Ok I hate him, but let's be honest. He owns NYC. He plays America's past time and at a key position. Leader, All star and then there is..Jessica Alba, Mariah Carey, Vida Guerra, Jordan Brewster, Jessica Biel, Adriana Lima, Tyra Banks, Vanessa Minnillo, some girl who was miss universe 2000, and Scarlett Jo. Arod, study this, Madonna is NOT on this list.
1. Pierce Brosnan. Ok I know the life of Jeter would be hard to pass up fellas, but as cool as he is, he is not James Bond. I mean, let's be honest. What guy does not want to be Bond, James, Bond? And while he has disappeared for a while now, you know he still has it. Or maybe it is just James Bond who I want to be. Hmm...
Close but no cigar awards...
Tim Teabow, Chipper Jones, Ryan Reynolds, Michael Buble, Tony Romo (wait ewww), Jay-Z, Ryan Gosling, Jimmy Buffet, Sidney Crosby, Dwayne Wade, Lebron James, Gerry Mcnammara, John Mayer, and whoever is married to Shania Twain.
Well the NFL regular season is over, and now I have no idea what I am going to do each Sunday, besides go to church. O wait, it is PLAYOFF time!!!! No my blessed Jags are not in, but Tim Teabow will get us to the promise land in due time. And while the Eagles pooped themselves yesterday, we are still gonna nail it. And yes, I said we. Donovan loves his chunky soup. If he loses, boo him. Ricky is better. Ricky probably loves chunky soup too.
Here is the playoff picture. This Sat. at 430, Jets vs.Bengals (go Jets). Sat night Eagles vs. Gayboys (Go Eagles duh). Sun at 1 Ravens vs Pats (Go Ravens, Tom Brady sucks balls). Sat 430 Cards vs Packers (Go cheeseheads).
So there you have it. I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend, it is back to the grind that is 2010. My birthday is in 21 days....I will be in the 305 watching my Maple Leafs and hanging with Melissa and my old roommate Billy and his bro...
P.s. Canada nailed it again yesterday, beating up on the Swiss 6-1. Funny I was kinda feeling neutral beating them up. Go figure. Unfortunately tomorrow, we have to play the USA AGAIIIN for the ship!!!!
Lock up the gold...
