Another legend passes...

To add to the recent slew of high profile celebrity passings this month (David Carradine, Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson), another legend of television has passed...

Billy Mays, the man that can sell ice to an eskimo passed away in his home today 6/28/2009. Some of you might not know Billy Mays by name, but the man who brought you Oxiclean, Orange Glo, KaBoom, and Mighty Putty is a definite fixture of television today.

The salesperson of salespeople, RIP Billy...

I feel like I am melting... It was over a hundred degrees yesterday and it's in the 90's today. I am more of a cold weather type of dude. You can always bundle up in more blankets and sweaters. You can only remove so many layers of clothes until you are naked.

IT'S HELLA HOT!

The Most Dangerous Sport: Cheerleading
LiveScience Staff

Cheerleading safety efforts have led to modest reductions in the number of serious injuries in recent years, according to a new report about college and high school sports and cheerleading mishaps.

But cheerleading continues to cause more serious and deadly injuries by far than other sports.

Researchers have long known how dangerous cheerleading is, but records were poorly kept until recently. An update to the record-keeping system last year found that between 1982 and 2007, there were 103 fatal, disabling or serious injuries recorded among female high school athletes, with the vast majority (67) occurring in cheerleading. The next most dangerous sports: gymnastics (nine such injuries) and track (seven).

Today, the National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury Research at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill released its 26th annual report on the topic. The latest figures are from the 2007-2008 academic year for college and high school sports, male and female. The report defines catastrophic injuries as any severe or fatal injury incurred during participation in the sport.

The new numbers are for the 26-year period from the fall of 1982 through the spring of 2008:

There were 1,116 direct catastrophic injuries in high school (905) and college sports (211).
High school sports were associated with 152 fatalities, 379 non-fatal injuries and 374 serious injuries. College sports accounted for 22 fatalities, 63 non-fatal injuries and 126 serious injuries.
Cheerleading accounted for 65.2 percent of high school and 70.5 percent of college catastrophic injuries among all female sports.

The number of cheerleading injuries fell slightly in the 2007-08 academic year.

"Progress has been slow, but there has been an increased emphasis on cheerleading safety," said the study's author Frederick O. Mueller. "Continued data collection on all types of cheerleading injuries will hopefully show that these safety measures are working to reduce injuries."

Jive-talking twin Transformers raise race issues
By SANDY COHEN

LOS ANGELES – Harmless comic characters or racist robots? The buzz over the summer blockbuster "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" only grew Wednesday as some said two jive-talking Chevy characters were racial caricatures. Skids and Mudflap, twin robots disguised as compact hatchbacks, constantly brawl and bicker in rap-inspired street slang. They're forced to acknowledge that they can't read. One has a gold tooth...
Article continued here.

This is just dumb. They are robots. Plus, one of the actors who plays one of the twins is the voice of Spongebob.


People need to relax, enjoy movies, and not get so offended by everything.

Transformers 2 was an awesome flick and I don't care what any critics say.

I still watch wrestling...

1:06 AM By Ed Man Chew , In , , , ,


I am 28 going on 29 and as long as I have known, I have watched "Professional Wrestling."

It's my dirty little secret, well I guess it's not really a secret since everybody who knows me knows. I guess it's more of my guilty pleasure. I don't know why more people I know don't still follow wrestling. There was a brief period in time during high school (mid through late 90's) that everyone I knew watched wrestling. Yes, I know that during this time period, wrestling had hit a masterful era. The Monday Night wars, nWo, Degeneration X, The Rock, Austin 3:16, The Wolfpack. I remember watching Superbrawl as it rolled into town in the Oakland Coliseum. We saw it live and we were so far up in the nosebleeds that we couldn't see anything. Hellova night though. That was the night that Rey Mysterio and Conan were de-masked!!! Yet the refuse to mention that in any WWE storylines today.

Well I still love wrestling. Yes, it has changed a lot since the 80's til now but it's still some good entertainment. It's more of America's past time then baseball. Arenas are still sold out nightly when WWE comes to town. That more than I can say for any recent A's games.

If you are ever bored on a Monday or Friday night, I urge you to turn on Monday Night Raw on USA or Friday Night Smackdown on MYTV and you might be surprised on how nostalgic you feel and how easy it might be to get back into.

My Life as a Part-time Vegetarian.

Friday, June 12, 2009 12:24 AM By Ed Man Chew , In , ,


So I've been eating 98.9% veggies in the past month and it's almost as if I don't miss meat at all. I've found that eating strictly vegetarian at some of my fave places tastes just as good as if I ate some meat stuff.

Some things I've been eating:
Taco Bell - 7 Layer Burrito, Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes, Cheese Quesadilla, and Nachos.
Chipotle - Veggie Burrito Bowl
Subway - Veggie Delite
Cafe Gyro - Falafel Plate
Indian food - Veggie Curry and Naan
Thai - Pad Eggplant
Chinese Food - Veggie Fried Rice
Nation's - Grilled Cheese

See, not bad. I still can eat fairly tasty stuff.

People can't believe that I am (part-time) vegetarian, just because of my well known carnivorism. They also ask me what made me do it. My reason is simple, "the mirror". I need to drop some lbs. and I figured that changing my diet would be the easiest way. I've dropped 5 lbs. so far.

We'll see what happens...
