The Best Quote on the Michael Vick Saga..EVER.

August 17, 2009

Fox 5 News in Las Vegas has a segment each night called “The Rant”. It gives the viewers a chance to write in or call in to the studio and leave a “rant” about current events, both local and national. Friday night’s rants were all about Michael Vick because of his recent signing with the Philadelphia Eagles. The rants went back and forth about whether or not it was a good idea to sign him. Then came Jose. Jose took a different approach. He claimed that it wasn’t Mike Vick’s fault at all but rather the dogs fault. He claimed the dogs had every opportunity to walk away but chose to fight. Well Jose, have another one on Thunder Treats and see what other wacky shit you can come up with.

it snowed where?

December 19, 2008

Yesterday here in Las Vegas, we had snowfall in the area anywhere from 1″ to 8″+.  Being from the east coast originally, I knew what to expect with the roads and such.  This is a picture outside my house last night, probably around 7:30 or so.  I made sure to get the palm tree on the left hadn side in the picture.  A palm tree covered in snow just doesn’s seem right at all does it?  Clark County School District cancelled classes for Thursday around 8:30 the night before.  Did you read that right?  I said The Night Before!  This would not be the case in Northeast Ohio, that is for sure.  In Ohio, you go to bed swearing about the Superintendent or Dean of your school system because he is heartless and wants everyone to suffer.  When you wake, you praise him for having mercy and letting you have a day off.  Although that only lasts about 5-10 minutes, then it is back to hating him for making you do your homework the night before because you thought you had class.  You get 6 inches of snow there and its like “OK, put on an extra layer and get to work”.  The luxury of being in a climate with limited inclimate weather is that when it happens, it is a huge deal and not as much a pain in the ass as it would be back in Ohio.  It was a little funny to hear reactions of people from Ohio that laughed out loud when I told them the whole city was shutting down because of 6 inches of snow.  But you have to think, what was the city, with a population of 2 million plus,  going to do with only 14 snow trucks?
