Random Ramblings

There are times that I have random thoughts that probably don't deserve their own post. This is one of those times where I put them together to share with you.

* NHL Center Ice offered a free preview this week. As a result, I had a wonderful opportunity to watch hockey games from local broadcasts throughout the continent. So here’s my question: why is McDonalds offering free coffee from March 1-14 in Canada but not in the United States?

* Speaking of NHL Center Ice, I may throw the TV out the window if I see the, “We may live in New York now, but our seats our definitely Center Ice” commercial one more time.

* I recently joined my neighborhood e-mail listserv which has made me laugh. Here are some sample messages from this weekend:

- Maybe you are afraid of dogs and that’s why they are attacking you. Don't be afraid. Dogs are better than most people. They don't complaint about stupid things.
- I just drove by the course and saw a dad on a walk with his two young daughters. Should I call the police?
- I haven't been following all of this that closely, but I think it depends on whether or not they are on a leash??

* Raise your hand if 20 years ago, you thought this guy would be a two-time Academy Award nominee?

* The number of e-mails I’ve received from TMZ prior to Friday: 0. The number of e-mails I’ve received from TMZ the past 3+ days thanks to Ben Roethlisberger: 6.

* Mainstream movie that sounds like it could be porno: How To Train Your Dragon.

* A few weeks ago, someone put $5 on my car windshield. I immediately wondered if someone hit the car and either left $5 as a note or to pay for damages (which wouldn’t have gone very far). However, it looks like someone just left $5 to give us $5. Strange.

Does TMZ think that you were groped by Big Ben?? Were you?

Um, no. I guess since I write about the Steelers, TMZ thought I would be a good source to publish their stories about Big Ben. The total number of e-mails I've received from TMZ is now in double figures.
