I take back what I said about Rob Ford. I knew it. It’s like betting on the Bills. You just don’t do it. No matter how ‘in the bag’ you think it is. The story is here. Apparently Ford is all in on the joke then goes back inside and calls 9-1-1. It seems Ford went on a rant with a bunch of expletives thrown in. He’s declined to comment. I sit corrected.
Friday is a big day. End of the work week, beginning of the weekend. I’ll have to preface this by saying that we have 4 small children. A soon to be 5-year old and three, count ‘em three, yes triplets, the trifecta, the tre, the hat trick…, 3-year olds. So, it’s not hard to believe that my wife and I don’t go out. We go out here and there, she has drinks after work, I get to go to the gym a couple times a week (on a good week) to hang out with my buddies. Friday my wonderful siblings and I are going to see Sheezer. Yup an all-woman cover band of Weezer! Oh baby, chips and gravy!
From the department of ‘all things seem to happen at once’, Friday is also the final season premiere of one of my favourite shows – Chuck. I’m likely not going to be able to watch this as I’ll either be already downtown or putting the kids to sleep so I can go downtown. No PVR either. I’ll have to catch it online somewhere the next day. Watch the teaser here.
Well, there’s the arena thing. The story from the Journal. Looks like E-town is getting a face lift.
Tonight the Oil are up against the best team in hockey at the moment – the Caps. Should be a good test. We’ll find out if RNH stays or goes back to junior after this game. I think he stays. How could he not? He leads the team in points. Plus the game is on TSN so hopefully the Oil put up a good showing. Checking the lines it might be a good idea to put some coin down for the Oilers to beat the Caps, now I just gotta find two other games to parlay.
Text to my betting guru – “Oilers might be a good play tonight – just sayin’”
Text back – “I have some money on them…”
So I just decided to give back to the community. Pledging some dough to the
United Way that automatically gets deducted from my paycheque. It’s out of the goodness of my heart…ok who are we kidding it’s like 60% goodness of my heart and 40% I really really want to win something like and iPad or Leaf hockey tickets (that I would promptly sell for way over market value to some obsessed Leaf fan). I am a bad person.
Also just thought of some of the best charity slogans or at least the ones I like:
United Way – Without you there would be no way.
Canadian Blood Services – It’s in you to give.
That is all. Run along.
