Comment spam

July 29, 2004 at 01:23 PM

Over night last night this site was bombarded by comment spam to the tune of something like 150 new comments. So since some morons desire to spread the glory of penis enlargement through spamming worthless weblogs, I am going to have reenable comment moderation until I can get the new MT version and MT-Blacklist installed....

Aggies: Always good for a laugh

July 28, 2004 at 10:29 AM

Texas A&M has been in trouble on the playing field the last several years, posting an excellent 4 - 8 record this past year. They got blown out again by Texas and absolutely mauled by Oklahoma. Oh and they had guys dancing on the field when down by 70 to OU, nice work Fran. With lots of free time on their hands (thanks to not making a bowl), they've decided to go out and get...

John Kerry almost makes me root for the Yankees

July 26, 2004 at 08:41 AM

I really can't stand the Yankees. I mean, I completely despise them and everything they stand for. That was the case till I saw John Kerry's "surprise visit" to the Red Sox - Yankees game last night. Watching SportsCenter this morning and seeing Kerry dorkily and artificially high-fiving the Red Sox players really made me hope the Yankees would come back and win the game. He really looked out of place. I honestly think... Continue reading

Upcoming redesign

July 25, 2004 at 06:29 PM

I just got my copy of MS Office 2003 from NewEgg so I'm currently working on an Access database to keep track of all my workout details and progress. Leave it to me to make working out nerdy. As soon as I'm finished with that I'll be beginning the redesign of this site. I've got a lot of stuff I plan on doing both on the back end and on the presentation of things. I've...

Holy crap! Ricky Williams retires from NFL

July 25, 2004 at 10:53 AM

Wow, talk about a stunner. The Miami Herald and ESPN.com are reporting that Ricky Williams has told the Dolphins he plans to retire from pro football after just five seasons. He's going on a trip to Asia with a one-way ticket, so who know's if anyone will be able to talk him out of it. One interesting note in the whole story is that Ricky has been spending time this offseason with Robert Smith,... Continue reading

Today I become an (old) man

July 22, 2004 at 11:42 AM

Today's my 24th birthday. I'm officially in my mid-twenties. It's all down hill now. Life has changed a lot in the last year and a half, and for once in my life I think I've handled it pretty well. I've always been resistant to change, I guess that's part of my pessimistic nature. Even if times were tough, I still would be fearful of the changes the future would be. I'd rather stuff stay bad...

Xbox roster file

July 22, 2004 at 09:15 AM

After waiting entirely too long on PS2Rosters.com for the NCAA Football 2005 roster files for the Xbox I finally found another source yesterday. The rosters weren't bad at all. No added players, no attribute changes, and no equipment changes, but most of the names appeared to be correct. I just glanced at some of the teams and they seemed fine, and Texas' roster only had one or two minor errors. Not too bad, and... Continue reading

Can you tell I want one yet?

July 21, 2004 at 10:12 PM

PC Magazine has a short article saying pretty much nothing, certainly nothing new. But they did apparently get their hands on the new iPod and were gracious enough to take a few shots of the thing with all the rest of the iPod family. I really don't know what I learned in school, because when I heard it was only going to be one millimeter thinner I didn't think much of it. But looking at... Continue reading

Brooster the Rooster

July 21, 2004 at 09:50 AM

A farmer had 200 hens but no rooster. He wanted chicks, so he asked a neighbor if he had a rooster for sale. "Well, I have one, but he's expensive," the neighbor said. "His name is Brooster. He'll service every chicken you got, no problem." The farmer brought Brooster, took him home, set him down in the barnyard and gave him a pep talk. "Brooster," the farmer said, "I want you to pace yourself. You've... Continue reading

Another reason to hate Duke

July 20, 2004 at 12:02 PM

When I got to UT I received several crappy t-shirts and stole like half a dozen UTLD plastic cups, other than that I got bupkis. Sure some say you pick a college based on things like educational reputation, faculty to student ratio, and cost. But we all know we want to attend the school where you can get the best free crap. As if being consistently a Final Four team in basketball wasn't enough,... Continue reading

Lewis is a Longhorn

July 19, 2004 at 12:10 PM

Aaron Lewis has just verbally committed to the Texas Longhorns. Great news for the Longhorns especially coming in the wake of last week's news that Bryan Pickryl's injuries continue to plague him. Link: Orangebloods.com article... Continue reading

Aaron Lewis to announce commitment today

July 19, 2004 at 11:56 AM

The Texas Longhorns lost out on a bit time recruit this weekend when blue-chip quarterback Mark Sanchez chose USC over the Horns. Today at 11 MDT (when the hell is Mountain Time? Who lives in the mountains? Is it one hour after Central? So does that mean his press conference starts right now? I hate time zones.) New Mexico defensive end/linebacker Aaron Lewis will hold a press conference to announce his decision. It's down... Continue reading
