Just an update

The Chris Benoit tribute was done before it was revealed he killed his family. Had WWE known prior that he killed them, they would have not aired the tribute. Today Vince McMahon made an appearance on TV apologizing for the tribute and it would be the last time Benoits name would be mentioned...

What did you do Benoit....

I used to be a huge wrestling fan and even did behind the scene wrestling news for a website which included me being a co-host of a weekly nationwide radio show. We actually interviewed Chris Benoit a few years back and he was one of the nicest guests we ever had. Something obviously made Chris Benoit snap to kill his wife and child then commit suicide. I'm not sure what it was but he knew what he was going to do. If you watched the tribute show on RAW last night (before it was announced Murder-Suicide), you will see that Chavo Guerrero (nephew of the late Eddie Guerrero) mentions that before Chris Benoit left to go aid his "ill" family, he told Chavo, "I love you Chavo". This to me seemed like it was a final farewell. Why would he tell Chavo that? I told my wife that I bet you it was Benoit who killed his wife and kid then himself. Sure enough an hour later I read the headlines and thats what it was.

The Distict Attorney for Fayetteville county also mentioned in a briefing that the killings were a little bizarre. Not sure what this means either...

WWE.COM is also already taking down the merchandise of Chris Benoit and the tributes are sure to come down quickly as well.

One of the largest UFOs ever seen has been observed by the crew and passengers of an airliner over the Channel Islands.

An official air-miss report on the incident several weeks ago appears in Pilot magazine.

Aurigny Airlines captain Ray Bowyer, 50, flying close to Alderney first spotted the object, described as "a cigar-shaped brilliant white light".

Aurigny Airlines captain Ray Bowyer, 50, described what he thought to be a UFO as 'a cigar-shaped brilliant white light', similar to the image supplied by Dennis Plunket of the British Flying Saucer bureau

As the plane got closer the captain viewed it through binoculars and said:

"It was a very sharp, thin yellow object with a green area. It was 2,000ft up and stationary. I thought it was about 10 miles away, although I later realised it was approximately 40 miles from us. At first, I thought it was the size of a [Boeing] 737.

"But it must have been much bigger because of how far away it was. It could have been as much as a mile wide."

Continuing his approach to Guernsey, Bowyer then spied a "second identical object further to the west".

He said: "It was exactly the same but looked smaller because it was further away. It was closer to Guernsey. I can't explain it. This was clearly visual for about nine minutes.

"I'm certainly not saying that it was something of another world. All I'm saying is that I have never seen anything like it before in all my years of flying."

The sightings were confirmed by passengers Kate and John Russell. John, 74, said "I saw an orange light. It was like an elongated oval".

The sightings were also confirmed by an unnamed pilot with the Blue Islands airline.

The Civil Aviation Authority safety notice states that a Tri-Lander aircraft flying close to Alderney spotted the object.

"Certain parts of the report have not been published. I cannot say why," said a senior CAA source.

Earlier this year however, the MOD declared its intentions to open its UFO files to the public.

Rescue Me...Not

I am not a beer drinker but I know most of you are so I thought I would post this funny and true story I came across that took place in Australia:

Emergency workers have come to the rescue of a town cut off by floodwaters in true Antipodean style - by delivering a large consignment of beer by boat.

Floodwaters have devastated the Hunter Valley wine-growing region

The tiny town of Hinton, in the Hunter Valley wine-growing region, has been surrounded for five days by the floodwaters that have devastated parts of New South Wales after storms and torrential rain at the weekend.

The murky brown water, the authorities said, contained sewage and other pollutants, but its 400 inhabitants were more worried about a lack of beer.

A plentiful supply was required to celebrate a much-anticipated rugby league match between New South Wales and Queensland yesterday.

For days State Emergency Service volunteers had been ferrying staples such as bread and milk to the stranded town in flat-bottomed boats.

Yesterday, they added 12 kegs and 36 cartons of beer to their cargo.

"They'll be able to watch the game and have a cold one tonight," said Philip Campbell, a SES spokesman. The local watering hole, the Victoria Hotel, was in danger of becoming a real-life version of one of Australia's best known ballads, The Pub With No Beer. The song, by the late country singer Slim Dusty, laments that "there's nothing so lonesome, so morbid or drear, than to stand in a bar of a pub with no beer".

Song of the day and how I have been feeling for oh...two weeks....

The Fragile-Nine Inch Nails

she shines
in a world full of ugliness
she matters when everything is meaningless

she doesn't see her beauty
she tries to get away
it's just that nothing seems worth saving
i can't watch her slip away

i won't let you fall apart
i won't let you fall apart
i won't let you fall apart
i won't let you fall apart

she reads the minds of all the people as they pass her by
hoping someone can see
if i could fix myseld i'd-
but it's too late for me

i wont let you fall apart
i won't let you fall apart
i won't let you fall apart
i won't let you fall apart

we'll find the perfect place to go where we can run and hide
i'll build a wall and we can keep them on the other side
...but they keep waiting
...and picking...

it's something i have to do
i was there, too
before everyhting else
i was like you

Sopranos Finale....My Take

Soprano's Finale

Well if you haven't seen the Series Finale of the Soprano's don't read this entry.

From what I've been hearing and reading, many people were disappointed with the way the Soprano's ended. Now the reason they were disappointed was because they can't follow a series or read deeper into what was shown to them.

The Soprano's got their revenge on Phil at a Gas Station where he was making calls to his family members from. What was great about this scene was that it wack came from no where. Then the SUV Phil came in ran over his head. There were two kids inside the vehicle and when Phil got ran over and their faces were like oh oh.

Sil...Poor Sil....one of my favorite characters is still in a coma. He never came out of it.

The final scene ends with Tony at a cafe listening to a jukebox. He flips through a few songs and finally settles on one. At this point my heart is racing as I know it is the final scene and there is about 4 minutes left before it ends. Tony keeps looking up (At this point we are looking through Tony's eyes)...Is someone going to wack him? A few people walk through the cafe doors. Carmella finally walks in and sits with Tony. Tony looks up...AJ walks through the door. Finally we go to an outside view and the adorable Meadow is trying to parallel park her car. I'm waiting for someone to come wack her. She tries about 4 times finally getting it right....Tony looks around the cafe. There is a weird guy looking at him with a USA cap on...The guy gets up and starts walking towards Tony but enters the bathroom..Camera goes outside Meadow is running across the street...I start seeing a car light coming towards her...NO!! Meadow is going to get run over...Well she doesn't...She opens the door...Camera points to Tony and Tony looks up...We are looking through his eyes again when..........Black......Black screen. I scramble for my remote and flip it to another channel. Other channels still work WTF!! I turn back and the credits are on. What happened?

Well a few episodes back Tony was talking to Bobby and Tony asks him something along the lines of how do you know when you've been wacked. Bobby answers him with...it just turns Black. So if you relate this with the Black screen mentioned about...Tony was wacked.

Now why didn't they show it? Well because a regular writer would just show him getting wacked with blood everywhere. A good writer will tie in other episodes and show some sort of symbolism of death.

Bada Bing Bada Boom that is the Sopranos ending.

Bo knows....Apologies??

I heard about this story a while back where the Daily Bulletin here in So Cal posted a news article about former Baseball and Football star Bo Jackson....Remember the Bo Knows commericals? Yeah I barely do either, but here is the apology for the

Public Apology to Bo Jackson

On behalf of the California Newspapers Partnership, MediaNews Group, Inc., and MediaNews Interactive, Inc., we would like to reiterate our previous unconditional apology to Mr. Bo Jackson and his family for the article titled "Forum Tackles the Dangers of Steroid Use" that appeared in both the print and online versions of the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin on March 24, 2005.

The article quoted a speaker who stated that "Bo Jackson lost his hip because of anabolic abuse." Because the reporter did not obtain corroborating evidence to support the statement, we fully retract this quote and deeply regret and apologize for any distress this may have caused to Mr. Jackson, his family, or friends. Mr. Jackson is one of the finest athletes of the past two decades, and we apologize if the article served in any way to call into question his athletic accomplishments throughout his career

**My Comment.....Bo should be happy anyone is talking about him anymore even if it is falsified information...Bo doesn't know publicity

Some crackers for my Whine (spelled intentionally wrong)

Due to work and the horrible communications that goes one at the M, when I go to sleep tonight, I will have been up a total of 41 hours straight. Why? Because I didn't want to miss a deploy that kept being pushed back and back and back from 6pm to 2am and finally at 6:00am I gave up on waiting and went to lay down; only to realize the sun was rising and I can't sleep when it the sun is out.

To those who are curious as to why I didn't go to sleep and let the phone wake me up...I would have probably received crap if I missed the call had i slept throught the ringing of my phone which I did before and is why I stayed up.

Ohh...Does anyone at the M care? Why yes they do...They cared that I didn't come in until 12 noon today and that 4 hours of productive time was lost.

Yup...Hope I don't offend anyone that has been at the M for a long long time but life at the M in my group BLOWS
