The Pimple: Stop Me Now

Posted by MimglowComments Off on The Pimple: Stop Me NowOct 21, 2006

I’m talking myself into believing the Dolphins are going to beat the Packers tomorrow. I’m even thinking of laying money down and giving the Packer 5.5. It’s time for a reader intervention, and fast. This is a cry for help. Alright well since you asked, here’s what I’m thinking: the Packers are scrambling to find […]

The Pimple, Week 6

Posted by MimglowComments Off on The Pimple, Week 6Oct 17, 2006

Yes, I went to bed. After having resisted the urge to turn to my XBox 360 at halftime (20-0 Cardinals), and finally giving in to the Sandman after Rex Grossman’s 4th pick late in the 4th quarter (23-10 Cardinals), I went to bed. I wake up this morning and go about my usual routine, turning […]

I read this gem tonight on the Soccernet front page: “Carlo Cudicini has targeted a return to action against Portsmouth in the Premiership on Saturday. The Chelsea keeper is recovering well from the bout of concussion he suffered in the closing stages of the 1-0 win over Reading on Saturday. Cudicini had replaced Petr Cech […]

This will be a quick zip through my sporting thoughts of the week, considering I haven’t found the time to find a dark corner and write. Baseball Playoffs: – Is it normal for me to dislike an athlete as much as I dislike Alex Rodriguez? Is there something wrong with me for wishing him such […]

Way back on my old blog, I offered a review of one of the best music albums ever made, U2’s “The Joshua Tree”. Since I haven’t blogged all week, I thought I’d post it here. New posts coming soon!   Has there ever been a better three song combo to kick off an album? Led […]

The Pimple, Week 4

Posted by MimglowComments Off on The Pimple, Week 4Oct 06, 2006

The Pimple will be a little shorter this week since I’ve misplaced my notes on what I wanted to talk about. I’ll make up for it with an expanded edition next week. This has been the best start to a football season I can remember, and it’s all because of our new routine. Every Sunday […]

Frozen Vulcan: Sens Fail to Show Up

Yikes, that was oogly. Last night’s 6-0 debacle to Toronto confirmed my fears of opening night: the Senators are not psyched about this season. By my count only three players showed any kind of spark last night; Chris Neil, Patrick Eaves and Mike Fisher. The rest of the squad looked like the Men’s National soccer […]

Chicago Metro: 9.4 million 3. Washington DC/Baltimore: 8 million 4. Boston Metro: 5.8 million 5. Dallas: 5.8 million […]

TSN reported last night, and the Globe and Mail confirmed this morning, that Peterborough billionaire (these exist??) Jim Balsillie is to become the owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Fans is Canada have a knee-jerk reaction when an NHL team is bought by a Canadian to think “Will he move the team to Canada?”, with Québec, […]
