Memorial Day

It's been awhile. I apologize. That might be an unfortunate growing trend with the hot weather months approaching. Not by my choice either. Like I've said, work is a full-time thing. Blogging isn't. I'd love it to be. But that's not quite a realistic option. Is it?

I can't pass up the opportunity to praise America and condone every other place in the world though. Today is Memorial Day and we celebrate the people who keep this country safe and allow us to do the dumb things we do day in and day out. War or not, supporting our troops cannot be overdone. Whether it's Iraq, Afghanistan, Idaho, wherever, the people who fight in our Armed Forces deserve more support, everyday, than anyone, anywhere, every second. The things they do, the things they see, the things they sacrifice, for us, can never be repaid. And for that, I pray for them and thank them.

We could live in France. We could be countrymen with Cristobal Huet. Can you imagine that? I'd rather live with an AIDS-infested dog who bleeds all over the place and humps my leg than be a Frenchmen and say I'm friends with or respect Cristobal Huet. America is the only place in the world that matters and the only reason it matters is because of the people who serve us in our Armed Forces. Timeless thanks and endless blessings for them and USA.

A few brief highlights for our Monday Link Dump:

Bruno has a new trailer. I'm really pissed about his hair since it's different from the show. But whatever. This is brutal and it's going to be hilarious. And it'll piss a lot of people off. Which is awesome too.

Megan Fox is great for America.

Even under approaching robot death, Megan Fox. America.

Sherlock Holmes trailer starring Robert Downey Jr. & Jude Law. I love Sherlock Holmes. Mystery, murder, all that stuff is sweet. I still can't tell if Guy Ritchie is heading down the "Snatch" route to try and make this semi-funny or not, but it looks entertaining. Aside from the fact Sherlock Holmes looks like he could beat up Ironman, I'll give this a shot.

More proof that Ohio tends to be the dumbest state in our entire country. Figure 8 Bus Races are entertainment in Ohio. This is one that goes bad. This isn't Dayton or Cleveland or Cincy either. This is Columbus. Every city in that state has now proven itself retarded.

Here is Martin Havlat video if you haven't seen it yet. He got destroyed (cleanly) by Niklas Kronwall the other night in Game 3 of the Red Wings/Hawks series. The Hawks won that game but got their ass kicked yesterday by the Wings and appear to be on their way home. Oh well, it took the Bulls a few years to get passed the Pistons and when they did, the wait was well worth it.

Lastly, a Memorial Day tradition. WWE's Tribute to the Troops takes place in December. I think the WWE does that so people remember our serving forces in December too, not just today. Say what you want about the WWE and Vince McMahon. No one else does this shit. And our troops couldn't be more thankful. Here's last year's video from the WWE's visit to the Middle East.
