This And That

I wonder if Regina mayor(and all around good guy) Pat Fiacco has sent an e-mail to the “good” people at MacLeans magazine today. The Canadian newsragazine,--I mean newsmagazine—has never hesitated to take shots at Regina but I’m guessing they won’t acknowledge the story that appears on the front page of “The Leader-Post” today. That article tells you the amount of crimes in Regina in 2008 was the lowest we have had in a decade. In fact, the number is 26.6 per cent below the total in 1999 and lower than that of every year between. It goes on to say crime numbers have been decreasing steadily since 2004. There are still problems in this city and in some areas that problem is greater than others but this is indeed a good news story and is something the city should blow its own horn on. Considering the way MacLeans has bashed Regina in the past it would be nice to see them splash this positive story in a future issue. I think its safe to say they owe that to Fiacco and to Reginans.

Anna Kournikova was a guest on NBC’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” last nite. I am not a fan of Fallon but if Anna is on, I will watch “The View”. She is still quite high on the draft board if you know what I mean. WOWWW!!!!

What world does Terrell Owens live in. The Buffalo receiver has decided he is not going to take part in some voluntary workouts with his new team. There might not be a better occasion to make a good impression with your new team, get a chance to catch some balls from quarterback Trent Edwards, a chance to see what the offence will look like and a chance to bond with the guys. NAHHHH!!!! Then Owens has the gall to come out and say he is upset with the fact he is considered to have a bad reputation. He says the media can make him to be the worst guy in the world but at the end of the day I know who I am at heart and I don’t need to change a thing. You keep thinking that T-O and people will just keep thinking what they already think about you.

How much can one age when trying to turn left onto University Park Drive coming out of the Victoria Square shopping centre---especially at night. You know of what I speak if you have been unfortunate enough to be in that position.

There can’t be anyone out there thinking the Toronto Blue Jays will be above 500 this season is there. I think this team is destined to be the cellar-dwellers in the American League East.

I’m still not sure why there are those believing the Flames are in the category of the Sharks and Wings in the West. The Jokinen trade is working but this team still has some serious flaws. They aren’t a good road team and they are giving up far too many goals. If they could have added someone like Bouwmeester at the deadline, they could have been in that upper tier but I still see them getting bounced in the 2nd round.

MMA fighter Lyoto Machida has revealed that he and his family drink their urine at least once a day. WTF???!!!!! He says its like a natural medicine. This would make taking a couple of teaspoonfuls of Buckley’s medicine more palatable. I just can’t see this scene around the Machida breakfast table where the family enjoys a meal of bacon, eggs, toast and my urine.

The PGA is going to mike some caddies to see if they can get some interesting conversation. Uh OK!!!

Gull he is in Washington D.C attending the sixth annual National Alzheimer's Gala he is there to receive the Alzheimer's Association First Young Champions Award. For raising awarness in the fight against the disease. Also you should know that his grandmother has Alzheimer's. Omg what a bad guy shame on him for understanding there are bigger things than football or a voluntary workout in life.Let me guess Blair you were pissed off at Luongo when he skipped the All-Star game a few years back when his wife was in labor.

With all due respect, the gala is a one night thing and the last time I looked Buffalo and Washington aren't far away from one another. I'm guessing its an hour or so flight. The workouts are three days and Owens could have been at all of them if he wanted to. Truth is the guy has no desire to be with his team-mates because he is a "me" guy. Many athletes juggle their time and T-O could certainly have worked out, gone to Washington, and been back in Buffalo. Thanks for the comment!!!

I guess i'm just sick and tired of you guys in the media making something out of nothing with all due respect it's a voluntary work out. And I know for a fact that if this was anybody but T.O no big deal so instead of nit picking at everything that he does how about blogging about real bad teammates like guys who get locked up or get caught useing drugs.
