NaBloPoMo: March 2, 2010 “Hockey”
March 2, 2010
Day two of posting on my humble blog for the NaBloPoMo…National Blog Posting Month.
Yesterday, March 1, 2010 was the final day of the 2010 Winter Olympics. The USA played Canada in the gold medal match for Hockey…the USA lost. I didn’t watch the entire match because all I know about hockey is: ice, stick, puck, skate, net, goalie, and fights. I only watch hockey for two weeks every four years. I have no clue what is going on out on the ice. I do not know the first thing about the rules. However, the game is very exciting and during those two weeks of the Winter Olympic Games I become a fan. Yesterday I began watching, but it got too raucous for me…while I was watching hockey I was killing another bird by reinstalling Windows on my laptop. I found I needed more concentration for that than the hockey game allowed so I switched the channel over to the big NASCAR race; after all, all they do is drive around in a oval to the left. From time to time I would sneak a peek at the hockey game, but I found the race much more conducive to a good install of Windows. I’m not what I would call a NASCAR fan although I do watch the races from time to time. I guess you could say I’m a fan by association; practically everyone I know or work with is a fan, so I need to kinda keep up with it a little. This brings me to my point today; I’m getting sick of Jimmy Johnson! I’m just tired of seeing his scruffy-bearded face in the winner’s circle every dang week it seems. I have some drivers that I just don’t like (Jimmy is not one of them), but I find myself pulling for any of those guys to win instead of Jimmy Johnson! Isn’t there some kind of ruling body for NASCAR like, I don’t know…. the IOC is for the Olympics. Something must be done! Jimmy Johnson MUST have an unfair advantage! Maybe someone in his family invented auto racing and that’s why he seems entitled to win! Just like those damned Canadians 🙂 … and their HOCKEY !!!!
