a couple of rants…edited with Famous Last Words and a music survey

I don’t know if I like going to the gym when happy, upbeat and motivated. I can’t move my legs. The top of my left foot wants no weight to be put down upon it. I almost fell over stepping down off the bench in the sauna because my left foot didn’t like having pressure put upon it. I started off with just a little bit of lifting. I then went and did 45 minutes on the treadmill. I then went and did another set of bicep curls, drank some water, got a new piece of gum and returned to the treadmill and went another 60 minutes. Grand totals on the treadmill: 1 hour 45 minutes; 6 miles; 1750 calories burned. I probably could have went another 15 minutes at a much slower and less inclined pace but I thought better of it. I think I topped out at 3.7 MPH with an incline grade of 13.5 and burning 22 calories a minute. Thank God for Propel Gatorade water, regular water and ramen noodles. I can move again. Barely.

I had to get home by today in order to put out all the bags of clothes and other donations for the Purple Heart military organization. About 8 bags of stuff that had to be put out by 7:30 am according to the letter they sent us. They didn’t get here until a little after 9 according to my grandma. I love promptness.

I didn’t rant on the Bears in the LJ update from yesterday. Therefore, I will do it now. What do you draft when you are a team with the 2nd ranked defense and the 29th ranked offense in the league? Why all defense of course!!! Why improve on the part of the team that wasn’t even up to subpar Division 1 college football standards? When you desperately need a TE and there are four good ones in the draft and three of them are taken immediately after the Bears pick defense…that is brilliant isn’t? When you need a WR that can gain more than 6 yards a catch and you don’t draft one, that is brilliant isn’t? I’m glad they got 5 guys to stand on the sidelines with their hands down their pants all season. Why get better when you are completely fine with getting your ass kicked in the first playoff game you play? Hello 8-8 season…if the Bears are lucky.

While ranting on Chicago teams, now for my rant on the Cubs. I want to start a petition to hire a rooftop sniper at Wrigley. The next time Glendon Rusch even comes within 10 yards of the mound, he should be shot. I can give up 3 runs in the first inning of every start too. I can let everyone hit the ball out to the street. I can do all that for much cheaper than what Glendon Rusch is getting paid to do it every start. There is a reason that the Cubs signed him originally to a minor league contract…because that is where his no talent I’m only in the majors because I pitch left handed and that guarantees me a job until I’m 45 belongs. I guess the Cubs like the Bears, don’t mind being an also ran.

It is time to go grocery shopping and sit around and watch television all day.

Until next time…don’t give up on happiness, it’s still in the ballgame.
