Thanksgiving in Palm Springs

While all my friends are at home in Iowa freezing their asses off... I've been spending Thanksgiving in Palm Springs. 75 and sunny everyday. I have a few pics over looking the Palm Springs area from higher up one of the small moutains we hiked up on Friday. Also have a pic I took from my cell phone off a tee box Saturday while I was golfing.

I'll be back in Iowa on Monday night. See ya'll then! .. suckers...

Update: I have more pics to add of the course I played yesterday and of the course my Dad lives on. The last 2 pics are of the par 3 that my Dad lives on. The very last pic is the view from his patio.

Dorf on Kinnick

Take a ride on over to Dorf's Blog and check out his post on his 1st Iowa home game. As I posted back in August, I have had season tickets to Iowa football games for around 15 years now. Sitting proudly in the North Endzone.

Dorf took some pics of the North Endzone from his seats, he even was nice enough to circle my ass so you can see me in game action.

Iowa dominated Minnesota on Saturday 52 - 28, rolling up over 600yds of offense. Nice way to end the regular season.

Everyone's been to a Hooters right? A little known fact around the world is that Hooters was founded in 1983 by a group of classmates from Waverly, Iowa (my hometown and current residence). The 1st Hooters was opened in Clearwater, Florida.. and hot girls in tiny orange shorts have been serving great wings ever since. Hooters is even going to open a casino in Las Vegas - you can read some about it here Las Vegas Review-Journal: Hooters Casino

The best bar in the beautiful town of Waverly, The Pour House, is owned by the ex-wife of one of the original founders of Hooters. For their official Grand Opening last spring the 2004 Hooters Calendar Cover Girl paid a visit. (pics below) She was actually a very nice girl... not too bad to look at either = )

.. anyways.. not really sure what my point was to this post. Long story short: Hooters = Good. The Pour House = Fucking Rules. Hot pink fishnet shirt = Awesome.

Update: To clear up some confusion. The girl in the green & pink are the same girl. She changed during the night. Oh.. and her name is Ursula Maciejewski of Chicago, Illinois.

What a sport

Bowling... Here's a picture of our table during the 1st game. This is what our table looks like all night, about every 15mins another round is dropped off and the casualties are removed. Notice the system. Each person has a marking - so as not to end up drinking a teammates beverage. My marking is the tear of the top right corner of the label. You can see my 2 Miller Lites sitting in front. Its a complicated process, but the talented wait staff at the alley has it all figured out. Occasionally an egg cheese sandwich or a sampler basket is purchased, then the challenge becomes trying to find a place on the table to set the food. 3 hours later, we leave victorious... and completely drunk.

What a sport.

Chicago, my kind of town?

Last Friday my brother Brad and I headed off to Chicago for the Iowa @ Northwestern game on Saturday. The drive there was pretty uneventful.. cept for the tolls you have to pay. $1.90 a toll!! You shittin me? I paid over $6 in just tolls on the way there, plus gas in Illinois is 40cents higher. Stupid state. Also found out that the driver side window in the car we took does not roll back up after its down. It takes about 10mins to get the damn thing back up... just barely inches back up everytime you try the button. Since it was between 7pm - 10pm when we paid the tolls it was a bit chilly flying down the Interstate with the window down!

We pull into the beautiful Days Inn in Niles (suburb just north of Chicago - basically straight West of Ohare Airport) around 10:30pm. Check in.. and drive back to our room. Yeah.. I said drive. We park next to our room and hall our shit upstairs. We quickly find out that the only light that seems to work in our entire room is this outdoor globe type fixture by the door. (see picture) Brad proceeds to go hang up his clothes for 2morrow for some gay reason - that's when he notices the 2 breakers on the wall (see picture). Ever had breakers in your hotel room before? The last picture is Brad with the world's most expensive tv remote. It had it all covered.. Power On, Up, Down, Left, Right. Before heading off to sleep I had to call my other brother Brian, because I had forgotten to place my 5 team 7pt teaser that morning... and as you could have guessed, this room did not have Internet access.

Wake up early Saturday morning and get ready to make our way to the game. 1st we stop at near by Target to buy a couple rain ponchos since it was supposed to rain that day. Before we get back into the car at Target I take Brad's picture next to the Leaning Tower of Pisa!!

We drive to Evanston and park on a side street. Mow down a sub. Start the walk to Ryan Field. There are Iowa fans EVERYWHERE! I get confused because I thought this was an away game.. but the only fans you see anywhere are Iowa fans. We decided to take a self guided tour of the Northwestern athletic facilities. We worked out on the blocking dummies on the football practice field and also checked out Northwestern's gay little basketball arena. Finally we get to our seats and the game begins. 1st half kicks ass!! Iowa is mowing! Half time score Iowa 24 - Northwestern 7.

During halftime we are standing there talking, look down, who do we see in full Cubs uniform holding up a Bears helment? Ronnie Fucking Woo Woo!! We go down to see the legend, I'm like "Hey what's up Ronnie!?". He smiles. (I think the only thing he can do is smile and say Woo! Woo!).. but it kicked major ass to see him.

2nd half starts, everything is fine until there is 4:30 left in the game. Iowa leads by 13pts and punts the ball away. 2mins later NW scores a touchdown. 2mins left. NW recovers onside kick. 1:50 left. NW drives and scores touchdown. 40 secs left. NW now leads by 1. Iowa fucks up and we lose. Worst game ever. After standing in complete silence for over 10mins as we watch people leave the stadium, Brad and I finally start to make our way out. Its about 2 blocks away before one of us even speaks. I believe the silence was broken by me when I said "What the fuck!?"

Did I mention that it started raining in the 3rd quarter and didn't stop. Ever. It was still raining when I got home at 9:30pm that night. Remember that window that doesn't rollup?.....


I lost my 5 team 7pt teaser.

Snoop Doggy Dogg need a jobby job.

My first job was working in an orange juice factory, but I got canned, I couldn't concentrate.

Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack, but I just couldn't hack it, so they gave me the axe.

After that I tried to be a tailor, but I just wasn't suited for it. Mainly because it was a so-so job.

Next I tried working in a muffler factory but that was exhausting.

I wanted to be a barber, but I just couldn't cut it.

Then I tried to be a chef--figured it would add a little spice to my life but I just didn't have the thyme.

Finally, I attempted to be a deli worker, but any way I sliced it, I couldn't cut the mustard.

My best job was being a musician, but eventually I found I wasn't noteworthy.

I studied a long time to become a doctor, but I didn't have any patients.

Next was a job in a shoe factory; I tried but I just didn't fit in.

I became a professional fisherman, but discovered that I couldn't live on my net income.

Thought about becoming a witch, so I tried that for a spell.

I managed to get a good job working for a pool maintenance company, but the work was just too draining.

I got a job at a zoo feeding giraffes but I was fired because I wasn't up to it.

So then I got a job in a gymnasium (work-out-center), but they said I wasn't fit for the job.

Next, I found being an electrician interesting, but the work was shocking.

After many years of trying to find steady work I finally got a job as a historian until I realized there was no future in it.

My last job was working at Starbucks, but I had to quit because it was always the same old grind.

If I Were Superman...

At first I thought, if I were Superman, a perfect secret identity would be "Clark Kent, Dentist," because you could save money on tooth X-rays. But then I thought, if a patient said, "How's my back tooth?" and you just looked at it with your X-ray vision and said, "Oh it's okay," then the patient would probably say, "Aren't you going to take an X-ray, stupid?" and you'd say, "Aw fuck you, get outta here," and then he probably wouldn't even pay his bill.

Justin Timberlake gots nothin on this guy!

I stumbled onto this video that I saw awhile back. This guy is freaking awesome. I wonder if you can hire him out for parties...?

Chicken Litte .. Great Family Movie...

No 'Chicken Little' - Kids see suicide

A Times Square movie theater laid an egg at a showing of "Chicken Little" last night.
Adults and kids expecting to watch Disney's G-rated animated flick at the AMC Empire 25 theater on 42nd St. were instead presented with a foreign film that opened with a young man committing suicide.

"It's pandemonium," Joshua Gallo, 30, told the Daily News as he rushed out of the theater with his 5-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter. "The kids are crying. The mothers are screaming for the managers to stop the film."

Terrified children didn't know what to do as they watched a young boy hang himself from a tree at the 8:45 p.m. screening.

After five minutes, "Andrea," a Spanish drama opening today, was turned off and "Chicken Little" was played.

Patrons got a coupon for a free movie.

New York Daily News - No 'Chicken Little' - Kids see suicide


Tomorrow I'm planning on getting a post up about my trip to ChiTown this weekend. I've got to get all the pics downloaded.. and the longer I wait.. the less upset I get about the whole damn thing...which is probably good.

Point taken.
