How you know your iPod loves you

have you ever noticed the love an iPod will give you? sure, they can be frustrating at times. when they freeze or suck up battery like a motha. but i tell you if you take the time to notice, your iPod loves you. call me crazy. but at least here the theory.

it happens when you hit "shuffle songs" and usually more times than not, it's like your iPod knows the mood you are in. and so the selection of back-to-back random songs seems like a great, random playlist.

i know there are other factors. the sentiments that come with certain songs. what they remind you of, snapshots of your life or the meaning the song has to you. but i know this isn't a scientific experiment and it's not something that can be quantified and sold to the masses, but i really your iPod can be in tune with you.

and i wasn't even trying to be end on a pun.

Favre's a Baby

Favre just got a baby tap to his head. But because he is Brett Favre, the game is in GBay and every announcer seems to have a man-crush on him it was a call against the Vikes.


I'm not a homer Viking fan. If the T-wolves weren't so damn pathetic the Vikes would be in last place for my local loving. I know this town is a football town first, particularly a Viking town, but let's keep it real, MinnE is a bunch of fairweather-bandwagon fans. And there are a minority of us that are diehards.

Which is why I thank Mankato for this weekend. Just what the Lucia boys needed this weekend. And 9 goals scored this weekend. Hopefully that continues on.

The shutout continues at Lambeau, good Lord. Pathetic. Nice kick ass offense, Coach. Could are defense be on the field any longer this game?

Back to puck. Gophers finally get a sweep, instead of being swept. Next up Anchorage at Alaska. Hopefully they can get on a roll, like last season. Though I doubt the role will be as nice, but Minnesota is always better than the mid-pack of WCHA so here's hoping.

The Wild tonight after a week off. AWOL Walz. Do I return the other half's #37 jersey?

The baby wolves still 0-4. But so are the Heat, Wizards and another team, all of which had loftier expectations than the baby wolves. Plus it's NBA, who cares all that much?

Tubby's team off to a win. Togetherness and defense, I like it. As much as I love hockey and hockey venues in this state, the Barn is the best place to be when it's rocking. I'll stand by that. I love the X and I really love Mariucci, but something about the raised floor and the barn shape.

#89 Ferguson makes the longest play of the day at 35 yards ...

The really highlight of the weekend. Watching My So-Called Life on DVD set. Here's the Wild winning, (Burnsie staying out of the box.)

Purple Jesus is down! Purple Jesus is down!
God damn Pack.
