When I was a kid, there was no such thing in Nashville as professional football. We had college football. The main college in Nashville with a team was Vanderbilt, which was a joke. They had a bunch of pansy rich boys in uniforms who couldn’t score for shit. Most of Tennessee would cheer for the University of Tennessee, but that is in Knoxville. It was not unusual for hundreds of cars and trucks and even small planes to evacuate Nashville every Friday evening and go to Knoxville for the UT Saturday football games.
Then, the politicians worked some deals with a losing team in Texas to move the team to Tennessee so we could have an NFL team here. They promised to buld a brand new football stadium, just for them. They promised tax breaks and guaranteed seats and season tickets sales and all kinds of crap to get them to come. so the Houston Oilers came to Tennessee and became the Titans.
They won a few seasons and everyone was thrilled to have the Titans here. But then some of the players started misbehaving, lots of DUIs and drug arrests. Shootings, domestic battery cases, strip club incidents and all kinds of shit started happening. That’s when we realized that these overpaid bullies were nothing but thugs and criminals and I sure hope some people are regretting their enthusiasm for bringing all this crime to our wonderful city. We didn’t have this crap when it was college football.
I am so fucking happy. I just heard that Ron Paul may take Iowa in the Caucus. I absolutely love his politics and his ideas for lowering our deficit. This is the best news I have had in a long while. I can only pray that everything goes well and we can win the elections all the way around. I am not of either particular party, but the alternative choices are just not even close to what we need in office. I feel sorry for those who are so disillusioned by the current administration they voted for. I have heard so much grumbling but the very same people whom I TOLD at the time that they were backing a loser.
People never listen. Unfortunately for us, their shitty judgement has made a bad situation worse. I am not very happy about it, but there is nothing for it now but to get him out of office. That is not going to be easy either. I have high hopes though, for the next elections. I just hope that people are smart enough not to play the devil you know, rather then the one you don’t game. It is a highly irresponsible way to vote in my opinion.
Oh my fucking God ! I cannot believe that I have to file for unemployment. There was a problem at work that shut down the office for God knows how long and I cannot be without a pay check for even a week. So now I am jumping through the hoops required to make sure I can get my unemployment. It is going to be about half of what I am used to making but half is better than nothing at all. My boss said that as soon as the problems are worked out we will be back to work, but that it could take as many as three months to fix.
Unfortunately he didn’t elaborate on what exactly the problem is and I am a little annoyed by that. I hope it isn’t something illegal because I would hate to have to go to court. I have never noticed anything like that before so I am going to assume it isn’t. By boss said to keep in touch with him weekly, just in case. I hope whatever this is blows over very quickly, but I somehow don’t think that is going to happen. I will just have to cross my fingers and hope for the best.
I am fucking starving and I want to go out to eat. I think I am going to call my girl Cindy and see if she wants to go do lunch at Apple Bee’s. I really love their food. their lunch specials are the bomb. Cindy and I get together at least once a month to have lunch together and bullshit. Ever since she stopped working to become a stay at home mom, we have much more time together. Since I make my own hours, I am not on a time constraint and her kids are in school, so it works for us.
Sometimes we like to do a little shopping at the mall and just hit the food court or one of the restaurants that are there. I am too hungry for shopping today though and I have a craving for Apple Bee’s catfish sandwich. It is really amazing. I will probably have soup or a salad with it, but I am not sure. I guess I will figure that out when I get there. I have a feeling I will be working tonight instead of today though, because I will probably stuff myself and then come home and nap. That is what usually happens.
You have got to be fucking kidding me. There is a town in Wisconsin that is having problems with loud booms, popping noises and vibrations that simulate minor tremors. However, the town officials as well as the Geological Society are completely baffled as to what is causing this phenomena. It is so bad that people are freaked out and leaving their town. The town officials have checked all of the normal things, such as, gas leaks, sewage gas etc…all to no avail. They are unable to figure out what is making these sounds and vibrations. There is no local oil drilling causing it either.
This brings to mind an old movie about a town that disappears Phantoms. In the film there are loud noises, sirens and then perfect eerie quiet. Of course in the movie it is an evil entity that was asleep for thousands of years had woken up and wanted to be worshiped and eat people or something like that. It was based on a book by Dean Koontz. I loved the book, however the movie was second rate. Not that the people did a bad job, it is more like production didn’t really put enough into it and the director was definitely second rate. Really fucking weird though.
