Again? Really?

For the second time in a few weeks FOX "news" showed the wrong video. This time they took campaign video and said it was for her book signing. Either they are trying to mislead the public, or they just really suck ass at what they do.

John Stewart caught Fox "News" switching video and padding numbers to prove their point. I mean, he caught them making an honest mistake. Yup. That is it.

Well good news (finally) in the sports world. Jimmie Johnson crashes on lap 3!! That is exactly what NASCAR needed to get people to care again.
Here is a great idea. A steady cam mount for your iPhone. The only bad part is that the whole idea of phone cameras is that they take crappy movies, but you have them in your pocket all the time and can catch some otherwise lost footage. If you are going think ahead to spend $150 for the mount and have planned out a movie, why the hell would you use a damn phone to record it? Other then that it is brilliant!!
This is truly impressive and very cute.

Well the Hawks lost. it was bound to happen.
We watched Mary's nephew play football for Missouri Valley College. He is a starter on the D. He played well. The game was on the internet so we watched it on our computer. They were up by 2 but the other guys had a drive going. There was less then a second left. They were setting up for a long field goal to try to win it. Right before the snap my battery died on my computer. AAARG.
Turns out it was good and Missouri Valley lost.
Did not do too much today. Dan and I went to Menards. I got some drywall and he took back some boards from the deck build. Then we all stood outside and drank beer and watched the game in Scott's garage. They are going to come over tonight and hang out. I really like having cool neighbors.
We all have screwed up at work. But none of us as much as this guy:

strange day

So yesterday I was thinking about getting around and going to Menard's to get some sheetrock for the basement. I have the electrical run on the walls of the shop that I want to finish off and was going to put that up. Then about 9:30 the phone rings. It is Scott our next door neighbor. He has two tickets to the Iowa vs Indiana game and wonders if I want to go. I know Tim wants to go and I figured it would be fun for us to do something together so I said yes.
The last time we did that was ten years ago. They lost, but we still had fun. It looked like the same thing all over again. They SUCKED the first three quarters. They threw interceptions and looked horrible. All year long they have started out slow and come from behind to win, but this was really bad. Then in the second half they turned it around and just blew them out.
It would have been fun to go to the game with Tim had they lost, but this really made it great to be there when they pulled this one out.
I am sure people will be talking about it for a long time, but I am mostly glad that we have great neighbors now and that I got to spend a fun day with Tim.
So.. never thought you would hear me say this: GO HAWKS!!
