Yes, it's that time of year again...Football season along with the Olympics...As you all know, I'm a big football fan and I live and die by the Cowboys...plus I'm a Olympics fan...I love the Olympics..even if they are played in a country that I despise. Some of my favorite memories are Olympic memories...standing on my feet for the entire game between the U.S.A and Russia and then against Sweden. I was so nervous I couldn't sit down..So I watched both games standing up...I'm always for the American team of course, but when they weren't in the running I'd root for Canada..I love to watch all of the different sports..but I do have my favorites, gymnastics, volleyball, basketball, tennis, track, swimming...well, hell, I love them all..I like the winter Olympics too, but the summer ones are my favorites..So this Saturday is going to be a bitch..The Cowboys are playing San Diego and the Olympics are starting...arghghg!...I'd try and tape one but the DVD gremlin hit the apts. Babs and my DVD players went out in the same week...Sucks!...There is one piece of wonderful news..one of the Lost boys of the Sudan not only made the Olympics in track, but has been chosen to carry the American flag into the Bird's Nest Stadium. The 1,500-meter runner will be the flag bearer 13 months after becoming a U.S citizen..How cool is that? He is 23 years old, was born in the Sudan, and separated from his parents at gun point at the age of 6, and with the help of friends, escaped and made it to a refugee camp in Kenya. He was brought to America as part of a program to relocate lost children of Sudan. I remember when they got here and were amazed at the ability to just turn on a faucet and get fresh water, and the toilet was just something that they could not grasp. They kept trying to wash their hands in it and drink out of it. Now, he's carrying the flag and representing his adopted country in the Olympics..Just don't get any better than that..
My worry is that the pollution will be the cause of severe health problems for the athletes and for visitors...Exposure to air particles smaller than 10 microns in diameter(PM10) can effect the lungs and heart. the 2006 average of PM10 concentration in Beijing is 161
Los Angeles is 30
Dallas is 25...
Then to top it off we have the asshole president whining about China's human rights abuses right before he goes over there...Why now asshole?....You had nearly 8 fucking years to make this point and to force them into some changes...but nooooooooo...you just keep borrowing money from them to the point that we owe them upwards of 40 Billionfuckingdollars..douche bag...I hope the Chinese toss you into one of there little vacation hide aways and do nasty things to your body...maybe some water-boarding..since that's not torture in your books, you should be able to handle it just fine..
Fuckity fuck fuck fuck..
I'm the only person that can segue from the Olympics and football to asshole Bush..Still don't know why we are having them there in the first place...they knew about the pollution, and human rights abuses, the horrible things they do to the Tibetan people, all the lead in the products they make, toxins in their food, etc. But they still went ahead and let them have them..Guess china has all there balls in a basket too.
It pisses me off, but I will still watch them...I'd be happier if they were being held some place else, but too late now..So I won't be around so much once football season and the Olympics are on...and if the Cowboys win...I'll be here yahooing out my ass...if they lose I'll be pissy and wanting to kick some one's ass..The only thing I have to look forward to is that the NFL has set up some really strict fan behavior rules..and if it works out the way I think it will..The Eagles fans will all have to watch the games from their living room as they will violate most of the rules the minute they get out of their cars..I mean really...they are the only team that has a judge and a court to handle the drunks..in the fucking stadium...or at least they did before the new stadium was built..they may have changed it ...but with their fans?...I doubt it..As you can see...I'm not an Eagles fan....I hate the Eagles...they hate us...we don't care and neither do they..Our love affair is hating each other..So...hope your team wins...unless they're playing the Cowboys..they may be a bunch of assholes....but their my assholes....
