So I need to study for this finance exam and I just finished the first chapter. I was having trouble retaining some of the finer points so I went back to my old friends, notecards. I used to fire through these in college to help me remember whatever it was that needed to be commited to memory. Well this is really boring and I used to watch them while watching a sporting event on TV or something else. Right now during the day there isn't a bunch to watch as far as sports so I came up with a great idea. Tournaments!
I can 1 or 2 table a couple tourneys while I'm flipping through note cards. In the beginning they're so slow paced that this won't be hard and it'll give me a shot to bink a nice score. I know, I'm a pioneer. Although expect to see a blog post titled "I'm an Idiot" in a couple weeks.
I'm just about done with Prison Break season 2 and I'm at the point where it looks like the show is going to become completely ridiculous. It's understandable but I'm also at the point where it's too late not to finish it. Seasons 1 and 2 have been very good. I've heard from multiple people that seasons 3 and 4 are weak and then it becomes good in the last season again. Right now like 4 crazy things are happening each episode, never a dull moment.
The Redsox signed Carl Crawford to a 7/142 million dollar deal on Tuesday. I honestly love the deal despite feeling like Werth was a better fit. However this management was never going more than 5 years on Werth and Crawford is the much better investment. Redsox fans are extremely lucky to have John Henry and Co. as their owners as they're constantly reinvesting into the team and always seem to have a plan. In fact it looks as though they may be able to stay under the luxury tax barrier this year and have a ton coming off the books after 2011. Should be a fun season in the AL East, bring it on Yankees.
It's amazing how great phones are nowadays. It used to be when you were in class you had no idea what was happening during a sporting event. Now you can get text updates after each big moment. One of my friend's brothers was in class a couple weeks ago when the Rangers were playing the Penguins in hockey. He's a Rangers fan and they had just allowed 2 goals in a short amount of time and got the updates on his phone. As a fan this is incredibly frustrating and here's what ensued between the two brothers soon after.
9:40:12 PM) me: my brother is in class
(9:40:14 PM) me: and he goes
(9:40:18 PM) me: wow great 2 goals in 38 seconds great
(9:40:23 PM) me: and then i said "but we got one back1"
(9:40:26 PM) me: and he goes u know why?
(9:40:27 PM) me: i say why
(9:40:28 PM) me: he goes
(9:40:34 PM) me: cause i responded to the espn text score alert with "fuck you"
I'm sure he's not the first to respond back with "fuck you" to a negative update but that seemed to be a fitting way to end the blog. Run well everyone.
I also have 666 spam E-mails, that can't be good.
