Steelers/Lions/Tequila/Cuban Cigars

I always seem to drink more than my fair share of alcohol after working way too many hours during the week. This was one of those weeks. 75+ hours. But I digress.

I had the pleasure of watching both my beloved Lions and Steelers rack up wins today.

The Lions benched Joey Harrington. I think the QB's in Detroit are either heros or goats and he had to take it up the @#$ without a reacharound. Anyway - Garcia looked ok but I doubt he is the answer to all of the Lion's woes.

For the Steelers it was so great to see Bettis slam defensemen around. That guy is amazing. What a joy it is to watch him.

Then for dinner it was off to a Sunday dinner party complete with Mexican tequila and Cuban cigars. Something about really good tequila and a great cigar that just makes all the "rush rush rush" of daily life take a back seat to the moments spent yucking it up with good friends.

If me grammar no be so good I me blame the tequila.

Have a good week.

Happy Friday

What a week. Worked a boatload of hours.

Two good things.

1) The Flock browser is in prerelease. Check out Flock. Some nice blogging tools there.

2) Daisy Duke gave me the shout out for HNT. Gotta go for it. Thanks Daisy.

Time for a Foster's Lager and an SNG over at PokerStars. They say never play poker when angry, tired or horney but what the heck.

Steeler Win

I thought I could hit the sack after the 3rd quarter. I was wrong. I could not fall asleep wondering what the Steelers were doing.

You guessed it. I stayed up to see the end of a very exciting game. I hope poor Ben's knee is going to be ok. Sure was nice to see Charlie Batch run a few plays. I liked him as a Lion and feel he got sacked due to poor coaching of the team at the time.

It looks like I did pretty good this week in the Blonde's football pool!

Steelers and Lions - Two Things

Steelers leading the Chargers 14-7 at the half. No surprise there.

My Lions are in *First* place in their division? WTF?!?!???

On Web-based News Aggregators

Geek hat on.

I gave the new Google Reader a test drive yesterday. Ugh! Geez, it's not that had to write a decent RSS/Atom reader. What's up with the coders at Google? User interface is clunky and perfomance rivals that of a drunken snail. Hmmm, time to take a stab at writing a reader in Python.

For now I will stick with Bloglines to keep up with my feeds.

Geek hat off. It's time for yard work, a beer, a cigar and some serious football watching.

On Buying a new TV

Looking for a new TV for the basement.

I have a technical background but good Lord. What kind to even begin looking at?

LCD, Plasma, DLP, EHDTV,,,,,,,

Choosing a kidney would be easier.

If I get any good tips from my buds - $20 to their favorite charity.

Good Cigar Site

Check out JRCigars .

Download their catalog in PDF form. Look at page #58. Those are great cigars and the price is right.

Thinking of cigars - I have gone to many cigar dinners and tastings. They are usually 98% men and 2% female. Message to females - Go to cigar dinners and you will have a field day. Just stay away from the married guys.

Go Red Wings!
