More Randoms

Worst cover song ever - We Will Rock You - Warrant

If I had to set my life to soundtrack, Casino Queen by Wilco would make the CD

Had my fantasy draft last night. Good Lord my team sucks.

Random Thursday Thoughts

1.) Another addendum to the 'Reasons Why I am Old' list - Appetite for Destruction came out this week, 20 years ago. Still an amazing album, possibly my personal favorite. Of course, I recently lost the CD, so I'll be buying it for the 7th time,

2.) Try as they will to be upscale, Cheese Nips don't hold a candle to Cheez-Its. I've gone to the reduced fat option, and Cheez-Its are easily better.

3.) Great night tonight! Fantasy Football Draft 2007. I am picking 7th out of 14. I'd like to draft (in order of preference)

Addai - No way he slips to 7th
R. Johnson

What do I do if Alexander or LJ slip to 7? I've got to pick, right?

Houston Recap

Was out of town for a wedding in Houston over the weekend, a few thoughts.

1.) Flew direct from Reagan to Houston on Continental, checked nothing. If I wasn't so price-sensitive when purchasing flights, I would always fly Continental. On time, friendly staff, recent movies (Spiderman and Shrek 3), and they still serve food!

2.) Houston is an interesting city, accentuated by the fact there are no zoning laws. Very weird to see schools adjacent to 40 story office buildings, adjacent to 'Treasures'. Caught up with a good friend and his family on Saturday, who lived in a great neighborhood, but you had to turn at the Whataburger to get to the place.

3.) Stayed in essentially corporate housing, very nice, but on Friday night the car parked next to me must have had its wheels stolen. On Saturday morning it was on blocks (on cracked, presumably from letting the jack down too quickly), lug nuts were strewn everywhere. Odd, to say the least.

4.) Fantastic wedding, at the Houstonian. Really enjoyable.

PGA Championship Recap

I enjoyed watching the final round of the PGA Championship, regardless of the apparent lack of drama. The PGA always gets the benefit of the doubt, as the Masters is a full eight months away.

While a lot of people are jumping on the Woody Austin bandwagon, I don't particularly enjoy his 'heart on his sleeve' antics. I see him being a semi-successful President's Cup competitor (3-2 or 2-2-1, they all play 5, right?). I don't think it bodes well for the US when Woody Austin edges out Lucas Glover (who finished 11th in 2006 Ryder Cup standings, as well) and the Internationals have Appleby, Ames, Weir fighting for the last spot.

How does Southern Hills continue to host Majors? What a boring course. I won't be able to remember any of the holes tomorrow. The PGA has been hosted by some miserable courses in the past; which they seemingly escaped (Whistling, Medina), but I don't see the allure of Southern Hills.

PGA Championship

Admittedly, my laziness led em to forget to post my thoughts on the PGA Championship, but I've had zero interest because:

1.) PGA is a miserable Major
2.) Southern Hills is a $hitty course
3.) It's almost time for the FedEx Cup!

High degree of sarcasm on #3. Considering the first round of the tournament is almost completed, my picks aren't 100% legit, but I like O'Hare and expect a good showing out of Mickelson. Also expect some relative no name to hang on the leaderboard until Sunday (Lickliter/Senden). Also expect a moron (not Sabbatini) to contend (Ames?).

Sitting in training and figured there would be no better time to name my favorite song by each of my favorite hairbands.

Motley Crue - Girls, Girls, Girls or Dr. Feelgood
Poison - SO dfficult, a tie between Talk Dirty to Me and Nothin' but a Good Time
Slaughter - Up all Night
Van Halen - Panama
Def Leppard - Photograph
Warrant - Cherry Pie
Tesla - What you give
Journey - Don't Stop Belevin'
White Lion - Tell Me
Aerosmith - Mama' Kin
G'NR - Paradise City
Skid Row - 18 and Life
Queen - Fat Bottomed Girls
Cinderella - Gypsy Road
AC/DC - Back In Black
Ratt - Round and Round

On a side note, I think Here I Go Again is the most overrated hairband song of all time.
