I searched thru twitter today looking for decent Sidney Crosby feeds. I found only 3 :(
Even the NHL agrees the hit was not worthy of punishment beyond the game penalty he received. This isn't even in the same league as the Bertuzzi incident.
These police, IMHO, see an opportunity for them to be on national and american television and are whoring themselves out for their 15 minutes of fame.
I also had a recent incident with the provincial Quebec police. They drove and flew down from Montreal to serve me a warrant for the servers at my business address. What a fkn waste of my tax money. Just another reason why ur Canadian taxes are too high.
Let's talk about the waste. The warrant was for data on servers at my business address. Any idiot with a brain could've figured out that my business address was a fkn mailbox. So the subpoena was for servers I store in my fkn mailbox. Trust me, I laugh about this almost daily. Do you need a high school education to join the police force?
After driving down from Montreal to find out that I don't actually store servers in my mailbox, they contacted the local police to find my home address. That must've been embarrassing and they pulled in the local police to waste their fkn time too. WOOT! Hear ur taxes flushing down the toilet.
They knocked at my door and asked "politely" if they could talk, or else, they would get a subpoena for my house. Hehe! Should called them on it. Made them drive back to Montreal for the subpoena for my house. And when they returned, I could'a told 'em I don't host any servers in my house either. Try a little detective work b4 u waste my tax money further. A simple whois query could saved them a lot of time and our money.
I gave them what they wanted. I didn't want them wasting anymore of my tax money. They don't think they have enough evidence to proceed. Convenient waste. Thanks!
So why r they doing this? Because it involves Sidney Crosby and they might get their picture in the paper. Meanwhile, some real crime is taking place in Montreal and the cops are too busy to respond. Thanks!
We live in a fkd up world. Chara pushed a guy at a bad time into a badly misplaced hard spot. Some cops are gonna take advantage of this and get their name on TV and in the paper. The fkd up part isn't the incident, its the attention whores taking advantage of it.
Summer Vacation, Day 29, August 15th 2010.
It's Sprint Cup raceday at Michigan International Speedway. Vide of national anthem and flyover.
Giggidy giggidy giggidy, let's go racing boys.
Kevin Harvick wins the race.
Awesome Hot Wheels car in the infield.
Quite of few of us Ontarioens were there eh!
The infield has a few stores in the middle. Merchandise.
A fully stocked convenience store. I had a coffee every morning from here. They had everything you could need, except flying lanterns.
There was even a Coney Island in the infield. Oddly, they closed really early in the evening. The infield party goes on past midnight. They miss out on at least 6 hours per day of prime business.
We stayed on site 1 A 25. That's second row. First row is AA. A was 1st row only a year prior.
The stands clear out pretty quickly after the race.
A lot of the RVs leave the same night, but most will stay till morning.
One last campfire at the racetrack.
For those that don't know, the Buffalo Bills are not co-operating in a hit-in-run investigation where one of there players was involved in a hit and run. On the other hand, Toronto has supported the Bills recent intro into our city. Please email the Bills and Rogers and tell them that you don't appreciate their business being involved in this situation.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have hired an interim General Manager. Welcome back Cliff Fletcher. Cliff was the orchestrator of the Leafs only rise in the last 40 years. A dozen years ago, he was hired for the same role and the Leafs went to the conference finals in successive years. Cliff is looking really old, so interim is a given. In the meanwhile, Cliff will bring in a new GM to replace himself, likely before the end of 2008. He'll then remain with the Leafs as an adviser. Fletcher didn't fair well in his last GM role with the Phoenix Coyotes, his only GM experience in the salary cap era.
Paul Maurice will remain as coach for the remainder of the season. That makes him a lame duck coach who is unlikely to return for the next season. I suspect Fletcher's first orders of business will be to prune the dead-weight from this team, look for younger talent and find a long term coach.
Slots for Mario is having a rally immediately before the Saturday (Feb 4) night Pens game. BTW, I personally don't think the Pens need a gambling license. The Pens' ownership is, of course, hinting that no slots means the Pens are gonna move. Hopefully to Winnipeg or Quebec. Personally, I think it's despicable when businesses hold axes over politician's heads in order to get public money.
End of first.
I really hope Belfour doesn't mind being a backup goalie. Leafs won. Belfour is 0-3. Tellqvist is 1-0.
