All glory and honor to the RAMS!!! We beat the Patsies
at home...now we'll beat 'em in a dome!!!
Okay, that was a bit ignorant. I can't help it though.
I'm so proud of the Rams...and I'm so happy that I can
cheer for football finally. I didn't have much to
cheer about during the Cardinals' time in St. Louis,
or during the first five years of Rams football.
I'm happy for the Patriots though. A good story, much
like the Rams story of 1999. I don't think the Pats
can pull it off though...and I'm trying not to be
biased here. ;-)
I read the online versions of the Boston Globe and
the Boston Herald today. So far, no trash talking.
Rho and I are thinking that we might not see much
of it this time. Boston is a relatively friendly
city. Although boisterous, the Boston fans seem
to be a bit more low-key than their Philadelphia
bretheren. God, I hope so. I am so glad that the
Eagles are out of it. Now the media here will
probably start ragging on the Phillies, who start
spring training in a few weeks.
The Job Front: With February approaching, this is
generally the time when the temp agencies start
warming up again. I hope it works to my advantage.
I wouldn't mind doing temp work for a bit, just to
try something different.
As far as permanent positions, I've been applying
for social work positions. It's my educational
background. And I think it's something in which I
would be good. It's something that I at least
want to try.
Nothing in the CD player at the moment. Been playing
a lot of PlayStation these days. I don't have very
many games, but five of them are less than 2 months
old. Here's what I've been playing:
FIFA 2002: I've always been a fan of soccer, but
more so since moving to the East Coast. I had FIFA
2000, but was somewhat disappointed with it b/c you
couldn't play a season with Major League Soccer. Now,
you can, although they removed a few of the European
leagues. Overall, a good game.
Madden 2002: My Xmas present from Rho. It
really hasn't changed much over the past 2 years, other
than the team rosters. My one big complaint: If you
use franchise mode, it just goes on "as is"--that is,
it doesn't incorporate the Houston Texans for next
season, nor does it allow you to realign the divisions
as they will be next season...at least not that I can
figure out yet. I'm going to keep trying.
HBO Boxing: I believe this game is a few
years old now...I got it as a Xmas gift from my boss.
Overall, it's pretty good. It features a lot of the
greats of boxing, like Sugar Ray Robinson, Joe Louis,
and Marvin Hagler. Two of the notables that are
missing are Ali and Sugar Ray Leonard. I created a
heavyweight fighter, and made my way to the Hall of
Fame, with a 56-9-0 (56 KO) record. I'm currently
fighting as a middleweight, with a 45-4-0 (45 KO)
Another great show on CBC Radio Two: "Radio On,"
with host David Wisdom, 12-4am early Sunday and
Monday mornings. Very similar to the show "Brave New
Waves," though more quirky, and with less hip-hop.
Excellent show...the host is a bit dorky, but
That's it for the moment.
