I was texting with Eddy Zucko today about the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Oscar De La Hoya (which I recapped here) and I was telling him about how I needed an Oscar victory because the rest of my sports life absolutely sucks. I told him that the SF Giants were terrible, the 49ers were awful, the Warriors might be the most dysfunctional team in basketball, and that all I had left was Oscar De La Hoya and Hulk Hogan. And then I remembered that my favorite fighter Chuck Liddell got his head knocked off in his most recent fight. Then he texted me back that Hulk Hogan sucked. So really, all I had was Oscar. And Oscar broke my heart. Actually, maybe Manny Pacquaio broke my heart. He sure broke Oscar’s. It was a dismantling.
How many of you can say that you’ve had your picture taken with someone who is on your top ten list? You know who is number 1A on my top ten list. She sits right atop this blog in my banner. She has blond hair. And packs junk in her trunk like she’s moving across town. Well, you can’t see that part. But there’s someone in that top ten list of mine that I recently took a picture with. Let me explain it a bit.
I was out at a Strikeforce show with my buddy Cactus Jim and his girlfriend Jan. Jan had the hookup and we had great seats. We were there early so some of the fighters were walking around the arena. Jim pointed at Randy Couture and he was probably less than 15 feet away from us. I’m not usually the star gazing type, but I thought it was cool. I wasn’t going to go shake his hand or chit chat with him. He’s a busy man and it doesn’t change my life any to get some words of wisdom from the man. And this is a guy who I enjoy watching in the cage. And then Jim pointed again and said, “There’s Gina.” And I knew he wasn’t talking about my cousin Gina.
Remember what I just said about star gazing. Well, I kind of broke that rule. But it wasn’t really because she was a star. She’s not really. Not of that magnitude. But she’s hot. I got my camera and blew right past Jim before he even said that he’d take the picture. I composed myself and walked up to Gina Carano and asked if I could get a picture with her. She obliged and that was that. Actually, that wasn’t that. She was far more attractive in person than I could imagine. Just way better looking than I thought. And I thanked her and was ready to walk back up to our seats to see how the picture turned out. She kind of stopped me just to ask me how I was doing. I was kind of surprised because the reason I was ready to jet so quickly is because I imagined she had some place to go. And then she kind of winked at me and I saw a sparkle on her white teeth. And she grabbed my hand, twirled me around, and hugged me deeply. Ok, the story pretty much ended at her asking me how I was doing, but all while she was asking me, that’s what I was picturing.
For some reason, I’ve been just a blogging fiend of late. I’ve been really updating my MMA, pro wrestling, and boxing blog Fight Game Blog and also, my friend Mike’s music site, Sonic Clash. I’ve also been more into reviewing music than I’ve been in probably at least a year. I pretty much stopped reviewing music of late on Epinions, but recently, I have just been in a zone with that stuff. I think it was that damn Beyonce CD which was so terrible on the first two listens. I’ve never been so polarized about an artist before in my life. I think she has a world of talent, but is as dumb as a goat, but yet is as fine as a woman could be. And her music is so average that it makes average subpar. But I guess, if she keeps doing videos like this, I’ll probably forever forgive her no matter what she does (yep, she’s in the top 10). I mostly just put this on mute and enjoy.
To bring this back to the theme, which is being broken hearted, I think this may be the last year where Brian half believes in Santa Claus. He’s pretty sure it’s bogus, but he’s conflicted because he really wants to believe. JJ on the other hand has taken an entirely different approach. Since people around him are questioning Santa, he’s pro-Santa more than ever. He walks around the house with his Santa hat on and even told Carol that if we don’t buy him a laptop for Christmas (expensive taste eh?), then he’ll just leave it Santa’s hands. As a parent, I’m so worried about this. But it’s not like I haven’t been through it before. I think I went an entire year with it figured out but didn’t want to spoil it for my parents because they worked pretty hard at keeping it alive. And then when I told them that I knew, I think I allowed my sister to believe (and Nini!) for another year or two. They’re going to figure it all out and hopefully not be too upset, but for some reason, I’m just really bummed about it. Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to watch the Beyonce video again to get in a better mood.
