Note to Sparks Lovers*:

International Brewing conglomerates have no shame. Just because they were pressured by 13 state AGs and the city of SF, MillerCoors is pulling Sparks from the market. Needless to say, I am rip shit pissed. Looks like I'll need to go back to making "devil's brew" drinks combining alcohol and caffeine by hand.

Surely, even though you went to Yale and are obviously way smarter than me, and are totally qualified to be an NFL head coach, even considering your one winning season out of nine, there must be someone on your roster who would throw the ball to your best player more than once, that being on the first play, and who might actually throw the ball past the line of scrimmage on third and ninteen in the fourth quarter.

Note to everyone:

Depressing realization.
My high school, college, and NFL teams are a combined 1-11, with no real hope in sight.

Adding in the local college team that I loved growing up, that sad total falls to 1-16.

3 of these teams have a real chance to not win a single game this season.

Furthermore, after last weekend, I cannot even credibly argue that my team is at least better than Dr. Nick's beloved Fins, who just last year nearly went winless, and who's only major offseason acquisitions were Jake Long and Chad Pennington, who we can all agree is terrible.

I can't wait for this football season to end and for the basketball season to... oh yeah...

Well, Spring Training is only 5 months away... ugh.

Note to PPF (and anyone else who is interested):

In the past few months, I have learned that driving 4 hours a day to get to a job in Boston that I really don't care for, and being completely surrounded by snooty bitches, is not how I wanted to spend my life. So I was fortunate enough to find a full time job at Southern NH Medical Center, which is only about a 25 minute drive from my house, which is much better than 2 hours. I thought I was starting on Monday, but Employee Health put a wrench in that deal when I made the mistake of mentioning on my health history form that I get contact dermatitis from Latex products...so they decided that I couldn't begin work until the blood test for latex allergies comes back Tues or Wed...which is a bit irritating because it doesn't affect my actual employment in the least. But hey, they are giving me a job, so I guess I should play nice.

Beep thanks for asking though:-) beep.

I made my second worst drunk supermarket purchase this past Friday night.

Wanting a hamburger but unable to drive to the burger place due to inebriation, I decided to walk to the 24 hour supermarket for sustenance.

Instead of buying some sort of microwavable item or even a preformed frozen meat patties that I could stick in the George Foreman, I decided to buy a 3 lbs package of raw ground beef (I think I was considering the cost savings...).

An hour later, I finally got to sit down to my burger. In hindsight, I could have walked to the burger place in 15 mins.

Did anyone else catch that there was a John Farnham song on American Idol last night?? For those of you who don't know John Farnham, try googling his name and "Rad".

Note to All:

Kate's new tumblr blog or whatever it is called is... horrifying. Absolutely crazy. She posts one-liners with links, with no hint of what the link actually leads to. I'm petrified to check back in, for fear that she will have 6 new posts linking to 3 articles a piece, with the only descriptions being thinks like "Hate to be these guys."

All I'm saying is -- visit this blog-thingy at your own risk.

B33p If this post doesn't somehow cause Kate to check the Beep Beeps, nothing will B33p
Note to Brian:

Good point! I want my SkyKing162 "30 in 30" previews too. How else am I going to know who to watch for on other teams? I need to have the info!!!

Beep Let's not mention how infrequently I update my blog, okay? Beep
Note to Sky:

Baseball season starts tomorrow. I expect the rest of my team previews by 5 PM.

Beep Nobody told me to bring my ark to MA Beep
Note to Sky:

According to RocWiki.org, Mr. Wegman's usual attire is either "flashy" or "unfortunate" in quality. Based on your recent close encounter, can you confirm or deny this rumor?

Note to other paddle-playing Wegmans employees:

Conversation from earlier tonight:

Sky: I'm doing great, Danny, thanks. I wanted to thank you for helping out with the platform tennis nationals in a couple weeks. I heard you donated some money and a lot of food.

Danny: Yes, we did. Do you play?

Sky: Of course. It's a great sport. You might not remember him, but my dad is Craig Kalkman...

Danny: Oh, Craig! You're his son? We used to play a lot of tennis together a long time ago.

Sky: That's what I'd heard. Anyway, thanks again. You should stop by to watch the tournament.

Danny: I plan on it.

Matt and I in a fantasy baseball league? Clearly, this is merely a clever scheme to catapult yourself up in the rankings a few spots... As I'm sure you're aware, the good doctor and I know (and care) next to nothing about America's Pastime. Personally, I'm pretty clear on the "three strikes and you're out" rule, but that's about it.

This showed up in my inbox, take your best shot at coming up with a funny interpretation:

"I work with Tawny Peaks at UNX Rehab. Cru Jones and I would like to come at 7:30am perhaps Friday this week to look at the Maine vest. Would that work for you?? Thank you, Dianne Holtz, PT"

Beep Names changed to protect the (possibly) innocent. Beep.
Note to Dr. Nick/all:

I would like to get in on the geek discussion and point out that the location of the carotid artery also put the skate blade in very close proximity to his trachea. Having your trachea sliced open is never good either. He is one lucky dude, or the guy who fell is very precise...

Beep I still don't understand why these guys chose not to wear neck guards (or face shields for that matter) I guess risking getting your neck gutted makes you badass beep.

Note to Patriots haters,

Am I the only one that sees this working out well for the Patriots?

Beep sigh... beep!
Note to hockey anatomists,

There really is no good vessel to have slashed open in your neck. As Pam pointed out, in a partial tear of the carotid (or any large artery) the fact that they have such thick muscular walls is helpful in holding the vessel together and allow potential repair. Vein walls are very flimsy and so trying to repair a torn vein is like trying to sew two pieces of Kleenex together. The guy is extremely lucky/smart to have held pressure right away and get straight to the ice rather than simply lying on the ice (like what would have happened if he had also been knocked out). He could have exsanguinated in a matter of minutes.

Beep BLOOD! beep!

Wednesday, February 13, 2008

Note to hockey fans:

Personally, I'd think the carotid would be worse than the jugular, since it's an artery, not a vein - and so the blood is under pressure. But I work in advertising, so what do I know?

I do know that Matty mentioned that the surgeon who did the operation said that the carotid was just milimeters away from being severed completely, which would have been REALLY bad, because it would have rolled up into his neck and been much more difficult to reattach.

From my layman's perspective, I was very impressed by the rapid response of the trainers and the way they got him to the hospital so quickly -- we watched the local broadcast on YouTube (morbid, no?) and unless it was edited, it was mere minutes after he was taken off the ice that they came on the PA and annouced he was at the hospital in stable condition.

Dr. Nick - what could they have done in the meantime to stop the bleeding / keep him alive on the way there?

Tuesday, February 12, 2008

Note to Matty Y:

Okay, so I hate to bring this up, but I've been drinking Bushmills 10 and listening to hockey and I can't help it. What can you tell us about this. I know the skate hit his carotid and not his jugular, which I think is a good thing, but shit that's a lot of blood.

Beep And yes, you went through 4 years of evil medical school, so now i get to ask you stuff like this Beep

Note to Brian:

It wasn't US driving in the snow that worried us...being from NY, we are quite capable of going 85 down the highway in a blizzard without blinking...but, seeing as you are new to the state, you will soon learn that in the great state of Massachusetts, one snowflake sends drivers into a frenzied stupor in which they completely forget how to drive, as if it were the first time it has ever snowed. Although I am sad I missed a chance to be potentially hit on by minors...that hasn't happened in a while...

Beep they don't call 'em Massholes for nothin' beep
Note to capones/all:

Should snow really stop former New Yorkers who now live in NH?

Beep Really, all you missed was a seemingly endless supply of youths. I need to meet more people so I can have a party not dominated by people that Sky should probably be teaching multi variable calculus to. Beep.

Note to Hockey and/or Statistics Fans:

Check out this site for a sabrmetric-style approach to hockey stats. It's pretty neat, though some actual work needs to be put in turn turn them into comparative rankings. Like the post I read yesterday about Campbell being less valuable than Talinder. Which caused me to then yell at Campbell everytime he made an error in the defensive end.

Beep No, I was not actually at the game -- I was yelling at home, okay? Beep

Note to schools seeking teachers:

Do not put stupid shit in your school description paragraph...
School plans some extensive renovations to add a new library over the summer of 1998. Enrollment of 435 students, grades 6-12. While [idiot school] follows a traditional college preparatory curriculum, the school offers three learning “tracks” for students in order to accommodate both the bright and able as well as capable, committed kids with some learning differences. Faculty of 61, 42 have masters, 4 have doctorates. Good facilities and a solid student body.
I wonder if the library's done, TEN YEARS LATER. And while I'm all for personalized education, did they really just imply that some of their students aren't "bright and able". Hey, at least everybody's "solid".

By the way, I don't care how many Olympians or millionaires your school has "produced". And I don't care how big your endowment is. Or how many dumbass Catholic schools combined to form your school.

I do, however, care what your educational philosophy is, so if more than 10% of schools could mention it, that'd be great.

Beep Are there any schools without the traditional Algebra I/Geometry/Algebra II/Pre-Calc/Calc lineup? Beep

I don't care if you do have to save people's lives tomorrow morning; leaving 2/3 of a beer behind on my coffee table is not acceptable. Surely you can write out diovan scripts even if drunk/hung over/missing a lung?

Beep I agree, whiskey is always in good taste. Beep.

First:
Seriously? This is pretty sad.

Second, you write:

It is not easy living in New England and utterly despising all things Tom Brady and Patriots, when all you hear 24-7 is how talented, brilliant, and hunky he is. Unfortunately, this year, I can't complain about him being overrated, because he and Randy Moss have combined to become some sort of super-human being. All I can do now is call into question Tom's manhood. To this I say, boo Patriots.

Beep all the supermodels and illegitimate child are just a farce beep
Note to Matty Y:

Ya know what was great about the Patriots having a bye week? I didn't have to listen to Tom Brady get verbally felated by the likes of ESPN commentators and Jen for a week. But now it's onto round 2, and ESPN News has gone to its 24/7 Brady coverage. God let it be over soon.
