I feel nauseas! I saw a TV promo for the AMA’s (that would stand for American Music Awards) and the “featuring” celebs mentioned were: Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff. I’m sorry, but I thought these were the American MUSIC Awards! And you wonder why I boycott all awards shows and hold my own! It started when Jethro Tull won a Grammy in the “heavy metal” category way back when Metallica clearly had the metal album of the year. Sorry – I’m starting to get wound up, but that made about as much sense as the Country Music Awards being held in

Stoners are dumb. A man in CA thought someone was trying to break into his home, so he called the cops. When the cops arrived and checked inside the house, they found $100K in pot – including an 8’ tall marijuana plant! There were also syringes and a methamphetamine pipe. Would you, ya know, try to hide the stuff or something? Oh, and there’s a "Neighborhood Watch Association" sign in the guy’s front yard.
OK, I’m watching the Nuggets’ game and the Timberwolves have just gotten their second technical for taunting – and they’re DOWN by 17 in the 4th quarter! How can you be showboating???
Chris Mortensen of ESPN was stupid enough to predict Terrell Owens would end up in
My brother and I honestly debated whether or not to mute the Bronco game and listen to the radio while we watched. The reason we had to discuss this? Two words: Dick Enberg. Honestly, he’s the most annoying play-by-play guy on TV. It doesn’t matter which sport, he just has a knack of pulling inane facts about players from literally nowhere. "And it’s a first down for the former pro beach volleyball sand raker! Oh my!" Fortunately, NBC actually let the Navajo Network play-by-play announcer call a few plays. I didn’t understand a word they said, but it was better than, "now the 1989 4th-place finisher of the 3rd-grade, tri-county chess tournament can add a blocked punt to his resume!" Whatever!
Speaking of the Bronco game, there were rumors during the bye-week that Jake Plummer should be considered for NFL MVP. Coming into today’s game, Jake and Raider QB Kerry Collins had identical TD-INT ratios – 12-3. Jake had not thrown an INT in 6 straight games, and Collins threw one last week (otherwise he’d have a better ratio). Today, Jake is 13-3, and Collins is 14-6. I remember laughing in the pre-season when someone said Jake could be MVP of the league. Now I’m not laughing. But I am grinning!
I have a new favorite entertainment magazine called GIANT. It's a monthly publication, so it's not as timely as EW. However, I kinda like the features a little better. Except for one - a feature called That Ain't Right. TAR shows a one-hit-wonder artist and tells you the classic albums that the loser outsold. For instance, Billy Ray Cirus' Some Gave All (yep, the one with "Achy Breaky Heart") outsold Led Zeppelin I, And Justice For All (Metallica), Bridge Over Troubled Water (Simon & Garfunkel), Achtung Baby (U2), Pump (Aerosmith), Off The Wall (Michael Jackson), Blood Sugar Sex Magic (Red Hot Chili Peppers), The Cars, Janet (Janet Jackson), and Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd). There's your depressing start to Monday morning. You're welcome!
OK, I need to make a small addendum to the Primetime Hotties article. I didn’t realize that Julie Bowen was back on primetime TV, because I don’t watch Boston Legal. So here’s a pic for ya!
