Day 30: How Many Times Will You Go In The Pool?

Many a time. Too much to count! You just leave that to me.

Red Sox Join In

Pixar, and now the Sox! The newest addition to the It Gets Better campaign features Terry Francona, Kevin Youkilis, and Jason Varitek.

Well That Looks Like Fun

Awesome in slo-mo. How does that not pop sooner?

Day 29: Sun or Surf? Sand or Water?

Sorry sand and sun, but the water is just so-so refreshing and fun!

I Think It Tops Shaq

Shaq did this once. This is just crazy though.

Now THAT'S A Basketball Court

That's very hilly! I bet LeBron could go all Danny Dunkface on Dirk Nowitzki there.

Second Sportscast

I listened to my Uncle and went with a microphone. Info from 6/26 to 6/27.

Take That John Wall!

This guy from Cirque du Soleil threw out the first pitch at the Padres game yesterday. Well I'd like to see John Wall do that after he bounced his pitch off the ground.

Day 28: Are You Happy School Is Out?

No I'm utterly devastated. What is this? Of course I'm happy. I'm ecstatic!

This Makes Me Intrigued To Ride Something

Oh Patrick Warburton how I love you. But didn't you do a real spiel on Soarin'?

Day 27: What Will You Do In Your Spare Time?

What is with these questions? They're so odd. Probably basketball, wiffleball, chilling, golf, I Love Lucy, you know the usual.

More Pixar Stuff

This disappoints me. Tom Hanks says that a Toy Story 4 is in the works. Oh, come now Tom Hanks. Say it ain't so. Don't get me wrong, I love Toy Story, but it ended so perfectly that it'd be wrong to tarnish the legacy with another movie. The shorts are ok, but not a movie. Hopefully Pixar realizes this and they'll remain a great, honest company not just in it for the money.

More Brave Stuff

Looks slick. Not your average Pixar flick. I won't post to much Pixar stuff, because you might get sick.

People are tweeting, blogging, FaceBooking, and Tumbl-r-ing...anyway my aunt tweeted about a blog that is saving the Event. I am doing everything in my power! You can too! Help!

Just Save The Event Already!

Day 26: Any Friends Gonna Come Over?

Most likely. These are really weird questions.

America's Team

The nickname has been tossed around a lot since the Cowboys coined the name in 1978. It's been given to such teams as the Braves, the Patriots, the Saints, the Steelers and even the Yankees. I think it's time I put an end to doubt and tell you who America's Teams really are. I give you the America's Team of the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAAF and NCAAM B.

The Dallas Cowboys are popularly known as America's Team, but I do not believe they still deserve that title. With distractions of Jerry Jones, awfulness of Tony Romo, and a Super Bowl drought. A different Texas team is ready to take over the title. That team is the Houston Texans. Think about it, Matt Schaub has never made the playoffs, but he's always in the Pro Bowl. Everyone roots for the Texans to beat the Colts. It's like when you're rooting for someone with a stutter to finish their sentence. You're rooting for the underdog to the unthinkable. The Texans are that team.

Well, it's certainly not going to be the Heat. America's Team of the NBA is the Memphis Grizzlies. I almost picked the Thunder, but issues with Russell Westbrook ended that doubt. Everyone was hoping the Griz could make a shocking run to the Finals in 2011. They beat the Spurs and game the Thunder a run for their money. No one thought they could make the playoffs, but everyone loved them. They loved Zach Randolph and Shane Battier and Mike Conley Jr and Tony Allen. I hope they'll be a contender for years to come.

Is there any doubt in your mind? Of course it's the boys of Arlington. The Texas Rangers! They beat the Rays and the evil Yankees in the playoffs of 2011. Even with the loss of Cliff Lee they're leading their division this year. It doesn't hurt that their colors are red, white, and blue does it? Nelson Cruz, Michael Young, CJ Wilson, Josh Hamilton, Ian Kinsler. Those are America's boys. Everyone loves the Rangers. The aggressive team who worked hard to get where they are today.

Trust me there is absolutely no bias here. It's the Boston Bruins! The B's who went through so many hardships since 1972 were considered cursed. They finally won the Stanley Cup this year though with America behind them when they traveled to Vancouver. Everyone loves Tim Thomas. They worship Patrice Bergeron. They rooted for Zdeno Chara to win a title. Go to games for Lucic. Buy Tyler Seguin jerseys. Read up about Brad Marchand. They watch for David Krejci goals. They checked in on Nathan Horton's condition. Hoped Mark Recchi could win a third. And wanted Claude Julien to avoid more criticism. The Bruins are America's Team.

I debated between the Boise State Broncos, the Wisconsin Badgers, and the Ole Miss Rebels. I decided to pick the Broncos. Who doesn't want Boise State to make the BCS Championship Game? They want them to stop being average. Get a few upsets. Kellen Moore be Heisman! Who knows? With the blue turf and undefeated seasons and sympathy for their kicker maybe it's closer than they think...

Finally it's the College Men's Basketball Team of America if you will. It's got to be Gonzaga. Everyone always thinks of Gonzaga when they consider the topic. The Bulldogs of the West Coast League. Steven Gray averages 13.8 PPG for the 'Dogs. Everyone hopes he can have more. They lost to BYU, but they definitley have hope for the future.

Hahaha, This Is A Joke Right?

Entertainment Weekly ranked the eleven Pixar films from least to greatest (excluding Cars 2). You'll never guess the order. They ranked 'em like this:

11. A Bug's Life
10. Monsters Inc.
9. Ratatouille
8. Toy Story 2
7. Cars
6. Up
5. Finding Nemo
4. Wall-E
3. Toy Story 3
2. The Incredibles
1. Toy Story

Sure, some of those are right, but not most of them.

I would put it like this:

11. A Bug's Life
10. The Incredibles
9. Cars
8. Toy Story 2
7. Ratatouille
6. Wall-E
5. Monsters Inc.
4. Up
3. Toy Story
2. Finding Nemo
1. Toy Story 3

How dare they put Monsters Inc at #10! Ratatouille at 9? Wall-E is all the way at 4? Sorry EW, but this list wasn't a winner.

Day 24: Gonna Have Fun?

Duh, of course.

From Artest to Peace

I Have Some Big Tournaments and Races Comin' To This Blog

On the 25th when I have voted for the ESPYs and given you my picks I will be starting THREE not one, not two, three, races. The races are The President of Sports, Sports Mount Rushmores, and The Greatest TV Show of All Time preceded by Greatest TV Shows of Each Decade.

Let me explain them to you.

A few years ago my parody sports magazine, Sports by David, suggested a few candidates for President of Sports. They were Peyton Manning, Dustin Pedroia, Michael Phelps, Tiger Woods, and LeBron James. Pretty good candidates, eh? Well, the final two were Tiger Woods and LeBron James. Tiger eventually got the nod. Well both of their reputations have gone down the drains what with LeBron's decision and Tiger's scandal. So Tiger's been impeached. Who will be the new President? Find out the candidates on Saturday!

Sports Mount Rushmores. Everybody makes em. I make em official. So I'm gonna have a Basketball, Baseball, Football, Hockey, Soccer, Tennis, Golf, NASCAR, Boxing, and College Sports Mount Rushmores. I'll give you eight candidates and you'll pick four of em for Mount Rushmore. How's that sound? When the President of Sports race is over you'll see the candiates.

The TV tournaments are pretty self-explanatory. First I'll start with picking my top TV show from each decade. They'll get the top seeds and I'll pick other shows to be in the bracket. Then you'll vote! You get it right? Yeah! Can't wait!

Get ready!

Things Don't Stop Do They?

Ok, so I watched Happy Gilmore yesterday. I noticed Adam Sandler had a Bruins jersey so I updated my Facebook status. Then after the movie, I turned on Sportscenter and they where showing a clip of a golf ball that had landed on a spectator. The people commentating on it said "Don't you have to play it where it lies? That's what Shooter McGavin had to do." Shooter was a character in Happy Gilmore. Then, today on Sports Illustrated .com it said vote for the top golfing celebrities. I picked Adam Sandler (Happy Gilmore.) Now, I went to my Google Reader and saw an item shared from my mom about Adam Sandler wearing his Bruins jersey from Happy Gilmore in public! W-e-i-r-d.

Does This Mean Hope Is Lost?

Got some good news and bad news. Good news: The Event is soon out on DVD! Bad news: it says The Complete Series. Not complete season 1, series. Sigh. Well, at least it is still getting talked about.

Day 21: Favorite Beach

As Charlie Sheen would say, duh, Long Sands Beach. Oh and today is the first day of summer so the whole 'summer' part of this challenge actually comes into affect. ;)
