Not Positive

Tonight I was told that I was not a positive writer by my wife.
I, of course, immediately sent her to this blog (which I still don't think she has read) as proof of my positive and cheerful attitude.  A quick check on of this blog shows that I have been very positive about RSS feeds, ODU joining CUSA and Navy football.

Sure I've complained a little about light rail, city government and elections but most people that know me would say that I could be described as a "glass is half full" kind of guy. 

In addition, I am very excited and positive about the summer.  It means a couple of things:
1.  Taking kids to the pool
2.  Volleyball
3.  Fun

So the next time, someone accuses me of not being positive, I will simply smile and promptly send them to this post .

RSS Feed/Productive Saturday

Hey, I finally configured the website for RSS Feed.  It is right over there ->
For those of you that have been bothering me for this, you're welcome.
For those of you that have no idea what I am talking about, simply ignore this post.

Hats off to the Norfolk Admirals for absolutely kicking ass and winning the Calder Cup.  I don't want to hear about the game three goal not counting.  Sh*t happens.  If the Marlies had taken care of business in the previous 69 minutes, it wouldn't have been decided by that call.  Like in football, if you lose a game based on one play you probably didn't deserve to win it.  Quite possibly the best team in AHL history.  Congratulations Admirals, you deserve it.

Have you ever noticed how it's the little things in life that sometimes mean the most?  Case in point, my brother-in-law and fellow blogger hooked me up with an old refrigerator which is currently in my garage.  It is awesome. 

Now if only the fireworks from Harborfest don't wake up my kids, it will be a great night.

Random Thoughts

1. Tom Benson (owner of the Saints) is an idiot. He is quibbling over less than $2M a year with Drew Brees and not locking him up to a long term contract. Brees put the franchise on his shoulders and carried them to a Super Bowl. Benson just paid over $300M to purchase the NBA Hornets.  Benson needs to dig through his couch cushions and come up with the money and PAY THE MAN!  He has certainly earned it. 

2.  Virginia has been asking for a first amendment lawsuit every since they started issuing vanity plates.  If DMV is not going to follow their own procedure, then they should probably lose this case. Just because someone  may find a license plate offensive doesn't mean it should be revoked.

3.  I am so over sinus/ear/throat infections. 

4.  Don't stand on your recycling can to push down the trash.  You may end up causing a huge contusion on your right forearm and your wife will NEVER FORGET!
