He doesn't always drink beer. But when he does. He prefers Dos Equis. I thought the commercials were losing their way and going more of the Chuck Norris route. However, they reclaimed their greatness with "If he were to give you a pat on the back you would list it on your resume." Enjoy the full list of Jonathan Goldsmith jokes.
- "He is the life of parties he has never attended."
- "He once had an awkward moment, just to see how it feels."
- "He's won trophies for his game face alone."
- "His words carry weight that would break a less interesting man's jaw."
- "If he were to punch you in the face, you would have to fight off the irresistible urge to thank him".
- "His mother has a tattoo that reads 'son'".
- "At museums he is allowed to touch the art."
- "Sharks have a week dedicated to him."
- "He can speak French, in Russian."
- "He bowls overhand."
- "He once punched a magician. That's right, you heard me."
- "Both sides of his pillow are cool."
- "If he were to pat you on the back, you would list it on your resume."
- "When in Rome, they do as he does."
- "He's won the same Lifetime Achievement Award...twice.
- He could have been a doctor, but he chose to be a software engineer instead."
The Patriots have never been the team to get a big free agent splash or make the big trade. They've dabbled in it with Corey Dillon and Randy Moss, but on the 28th of July, Bill Belichick did more than anyone thought he was capable of. He traded a 5th round pick for Albert Haynesworth and traded two late round draft picks for Chad Ochocinco. Hopefully Albert will pick up the pace and Ochocinco will celebrate. A lot. Watch out New York. Here we come.
I was watching an episode of Wipeout and I saw an ad go across the bottom. It said that you can make your own Wipeout video. So I did, but it would only let me share it on Facebook and Twitter. Not Blogger. But you can go to wipeoutyourself.com and make your own video! How about that?

Sorry I meant muddy water. Sorry again. Muddy CHICKEN! That's right Muddy Chicken. Apparently the Laser Show wasn't good enough for Josh Beckett. Beckett gave Pedroia a new nickname Muddy Chicken. We don't know what it means and frankly neither does Beckett. Anywho, Pedroia is at a 24 Game Hitting Streak. Oop, hold on. He just hit a home run. 25 games. But that's the most in the AL. Keep it going Pedey. You're having another MVP-type year.

Mark Herzlich was a Boston College linebacker who was projected to be the number two pick in the NFL Draft three years ago. But then he was diagnosed with cancer. He fought through and made a comeback last year. He went undrafted this year, but the New York Giants signed him as an undrafted free agent. Congrats Mark! Keep persevering!

Yes I see the Bruins, Red Sox, and Celtics pennants, but for today just look at the lighthouses. Closely. I've posted pictures of a Nubble Lighthouse that I go to every year in Maine. It's on an island that seperates the tourists. It's got a house with a hallway that connects it to the lighthouse. Look familiar? The Family Circus family was there! How weird is that! The same week. That's so cool. It says they're on a vacation in Boston, but the Nubble is in Maine. Do the artists really try anymore though?
Because they said that Dustin Pedroia is probably gonna be in the Hall of Fame in 13-27 years! They compared him to Roberto Alomar! And I think it's quite possible! He's hitting .303 and he's got a MVP and Rookie of the Year, Gold Glove, and Silver Slugger! He's also a 3-Time All-Star and counting. Don't forget about the World Series ring!

Could there have been a better quote? I recently saw Winnie the Pooh at Smitty's Cinema. A place where you can have a meal AND watch the movie. But anyway when Pooh falls in the hole those are the lines uttered. Roo was so perfect for that line. There were little kids in the theater who would laugh at just about everything, but they didn't laugh at that. It's the way Disney has that kind of humor. Jokes for children and adults. Like in Toy Story there were some parts where everyone could find themselves laughing. Winnie the Pooh did just that. Except in original animation.

In 1998... Smoking is banned in all California bars and restaurants. Russia begins to circulate new rubles to stem inflation and promote confidence. Nineteen European nations agree to forbid human cloning. Suspected "Unabomber" Theodore Kaczynski pleads guilty, and accepts a sentence of life without the possibility of parole. The United States Senate passes Resolution 71, urging U.S. President Bill Clinton to "take all necessary and appropriate actions to respond to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." The first XML specification is released. Two white separatists are arrested in Nevada, accused of plotting biological warfare on New York City subways. A 66-day blackout begins in Auckland, New Zealand. Data sent from the Galileo probe indicates that Jupiter's moon Europa has a liquid ocean under a thick crust of ice. In Oncale v. Sundowner Offshore Services, the Supreme Court of the United States rules that federal laws banning on-the-job sexual harassment also apply when both parties are the same sex. NASA announces the choice of United States Air Force Lt. Col. Eileen Collins as commander of a future Space Shuttle Columbia mission to launch an X-ray telescope, making Collins the first woman to command a space shuttle mission. The video game of the day was Metal Gear Solid.
That was the world you were born into. Since then, you and others have changed it.
The Nobel prize for Literature that year went to José Saramago. The Nobel Peace prize went to John Hume and David Trimble. The Nobel prize for physics went to Robert B. Laughlin, Daniel Chee Tsui and Horst Ludwig Störmer from the United States and Germany for their discovery of a new form of quantum fluid with fractionally charged excitations. The sensation this created was big. But it didn't stop the planets from spinning, on and on, year by year. Years in which you would grow bigger, older, smarter, and, if you were lucky, sometimes wiser. Years in which you also lost some things. Possessions got misplaced. Memories faded. Friends parted ways. The best friends, you tried to hold on. This is what counts in life, isn't it?
The 1990s were indeed a special decade. The Nineties saw the beginnings of the World Wide Web, originating at CERN. Email becomes popular. The Soviet Union dissolved. Living standards in East Asia and Europe generally improved. The Cold War ends. Iraqi forces invade Kuwait. A UN coalition force led by the US was sent to the Persian Gulf, and aerial bombing of Iraq began. The Kosovo War took place. The Ethiopian Civil War ends. Dolly, a sheep, is cloned. The Global Positioning System GPS becomes fully operational. Genetically engineered crops are developed for commercial use. Intel develops the Pentium processor. The Java programming language is created. Microsoft released Windows 95. In Los Angeles, riots occur after the police brutality case involving Rodney King. Great Britain hands sovereignty of Hong Kong to China. East Timor breaks away from Indonesian control. US president Bill Clinton was involved in the Lewinsky scandal. Dogme 95 becomes an important artistic movement in European film. Teen soap Beverly Hills 90210 has its long run. Baywatch becomes the most watched show in history. On MTV, reality television makes its beginning. Nelson Mandela is elected president of South Africa. Germany was reunified. The prediction of computer bug Y2K spreads fear.
Do you know what was on the cover of Life that year?
6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... it's 1998. There's TV noise coming from the second floor. Someone turned up the volume way too high. The sun is burning from above. These were different times. The show playing on TV isPower Rangers in Space. The sun goes down. Someone switches channels. There's Sex and the City on now. That's the world you were born in.
Progress, year after year. Do you wonder where the world is heading towards?
We're gettin' it straight in 98 y'all
Ah, ooh love, yeah
Tired of all the talk they're talkin' all over this town
I'm tired of all the negativity that's goin' 'round
That's from the song Live by Lenny Kravitz.
In 1998, a new character entered the world of comic books: Silverclaw. Bang! Boom! But that's just fiction, right? In the real world, in 1998,Jae Head was born. And Bindi Irwin. Mia-Sophie Wellenbrink, too. And you, of course. Everyone an individual. Everyone special. Everyone taking a different path through life.
The world is a different place.
What path have you taken?
