Oh the unofficial holiday, how I do enjoy their existence.
Lets see, there is Super Bowl Sunday, Madden Day, and the first game of the NFL season (which happens to be tonight.)
I does not matter who plays, just that they play for a win or a loss that means something. Pre-Season is over, thank goodness, and the Dolphins will play the World Champion Steelers tonight as the NFL makes its return to NBC. It should be a great game. The Dolphins are much improved with Dante Culpepper under center now, it looks like they could be a big playoff contender.
I don't really know what else to say other than, "Hot Damn, I am ready for some football!"
As you may or may not know, the Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin died on
Monday. There are not a lot of celebrities that I would really be sad
about should they meet a sudden and unexpected demise. I am not saying
that I don't care, but I usually don't concern myself with celebrities.
But, I grew up watching Steve Irwin attacking random reptiles. He is
easily my favorite nature show host. Steve would kickCorwin ass! How do you not like the Croc Hunter? He does all kinds of crazy stuff to entertain you and he will teach you stuff along the way.
I know that most people will say nice stuff about you when you die, but I
really think that Steve was the real deal when he was on TV. I bet he
got just as excited about lunch, as he did when he caught some rare
deadly snake. "Crikey, I love hummus." The other thing is he really
loved the work he was doing. He would risk his life for the animals at
his zoo, and I do not doubt he would do the same for his family. Being
a fan of the Florida Gators, I couldn't get enough of the Croc Hunter tackling Albert the Alligator on ESPN. Steve was over the top, and I loved every minute of it.
I am going to miss watching his show. My prayers are with his family.
