'Tis the season...

Over the past few days, I have spent numerous hours on how to fill this blog space. I knew that I wanted to post a new blog, but the ideas in my head were countless. The two choices I narrowed it down to were quite simple. First of all, because countless magazines, websites, and television shows are doing it, I was going to do a decade in review. Of me. Then I got to thinking that was far less interesting then recounting all of my New Year's Eve memories from the last decade. Of course, I couldn't remember for the life of me how I spent the end of 2002 going into 2003, so that list wouldn't be complete. I know I was living in North Hollywood and staying on the couch of my good friends Greg, Missi, Ben, and Misty. That's about how far my memory got. So either it was a really good one or a really boring one. I'll let you, valued reader, decide what happened that New Year's Eve and fill me in later.

Where is it, then, have I decided to lead you today? W…

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

The holiday lights have been hung. The Christmas trees have been placed in the corner of the house. Cookies are in the process of being consumed. Christmas Day is fast approaching. All of these things mean only one thing: It's time for "Home Alone" to be shown at least twenty times before the Holiday Season ends.

Or in this case, my fingers to the keyboard. Due to the many beers consumed while discussing this subject with my friends, namely Danny, Aaron, and Cornbread, I'm not sure I remember all of the key points that we've settled on, but I will do my best.

First off, with a nod to Aaron on this one, why is Kevin McAllister scared of a furnace? The kid has been home alone for a few days, yet he's scared of this thing in the basement. Sure, maybe it…

The half week in sports...

It's only Thursday, yet the the week in sports has already been peppered with scandals, hoopla, and entertainment. This simply means the weekend will be chalk full of excitement, especially on Saturday when Boise State takes on New Mexico State. With a spread of 45 points, this game should be a real barn burner.

A quick update before I dive in: The Oregon State punter just punted 15 yards. That's not very far.

Tiger Woods has finally proven that he's not infallible. You know it's not good when the likes of TMZ and the National Enquirer. I tried coming up with some clever headlines for him, like "Tiger Woods Needs Mulligan to Save Marriage" or "Tiger bogeys on Marriage" but nothing seemed right. After all, I'm pretty sure the New York Daily News already came up with something lame like this to lead their front page. As of today, no one really knows what happened. The man crashed his car, got a fine, probably got beat up by his wife, has …
