January 10, 2011 - Ariz-Oh No!

arizona shooting tragedy
Really Short Story: Guns don't kill people, psychotic idiots with guns kill people.
Short Story: Well, unless you were one of the few people in the world who don't have access to the internet, then you know by now what happened in Arizona this weekend. A deranged young man showed up at a political event at a Safeway grocery store in Arizona with the intent to kill U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords. He failed to accomplish that mission, but did kill 6 others, includng a federal judge, and severely wounded several others along with Rep. Giffords. No one knows what motivated the shooter, who was tackled and eventually arrested, but my guess would be that he his actions were influenced by the fact that he was a deranged nutjob who probably should have been locked up in the nearest mental institution a long, long time ago
george foreman
January 10, 2011: george foreman Day! - The man, the boxer, the legendary grill.
WHY?: George Foreman won a boxing gold medal in 1968, knocked heavyweight champ Joe Frazier down 6 times, before getting roped like a dope in the Jungles of Zaire by Muhammad Ali. Of course, all this was before he really became famous. For those of us born after 1980, Foreman is more well known for promoting mufflers, selling lean-mean cooking machines known as the George Foreman Grill, and having several offspring all named George. I guess Foreman kinda figured this out sometime in the mid-90's and made a return to the ring just to prove that just because he kinda looked like the Michelin Man, he was still a pretty good boxer, and he regained the heavyweight title at age 45. He is also an ordained Christian minister, and did I mention that he has 10 kids, including George Jr., George III, George IV, George V, George VI, Freeda George and Georgetta?

TOMORROW'S contenders:

It's better to be safe than sorry…but it's also better not to do something dumb and nearly cost your team the game.

I know a lot of you may have just stopped using Google and related sites altogether now that Facebook is worth $50 Billion, but it might be time to rethink that…
