UConn Women's Basketball Wins 89th Straight

If you would have asked me just a year ago whether or not it was possible for a college basketball team to beat the win streak UCLA set back in the early 70s, I would have told you not a chance. However, if you ask me right now, I would tell you HECK YEAH! (Sorry, trying to keep it clean) Tonight, the University of Connecticut played the Florida State Lady Seminoles to do just that. Under the lead of coach Geno Auriemma, not only did they win, but they dished out an old-fashioned beat down. They now have the most wins in division 1 college basketball history.

Early in the first half, the lady Huskies maintained a decent lead, but late in the half really opened the game up. Thanks to the great defense, excellent shooting from beyond the arc, and good free throw shooting, they walked in the locker room with a 27 point lead, led by Maya Moore with 26 points herself. It is really rare to have a player as special as Maya. She has so much drive, and not to sound to cliche, but you really can tell she wants this win more than anyone else in that gym. She finished the game with 39 points and 10 rebounds for an astounding performance. The whole Huskies team actually seemed to out hustle, out rebound, and just outplay their opponent.

In the second half, they never looked back. The final score of this game was 93-62. Now as for the record, I am quite sure this will be debated for a long time. Is this the same thing as UCLA did 40 years ago? Of course it is not. A lot has changed in the game since then. Today there are different ways of recruiting, and not too mention this was an accomplishment of a women's team to beat the record of a man's team. Of course it is different. However, that does not make this accomplishment any less. During this 89 game winning streak, the lady Huskies have beat 31 AP top 25 ranked teams. This streak is truly amazing. You can make fun of me all you want to, but I am now officially a lady Huskies fan! This was history as far as I am concerned. I cannot wait to see how far they can extend it.

Funny Joke

The Queen's Riddle...Barack Obama met with the Queen of England.
He asked her, "Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give to me?"
"Well," said the Queen, "the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people."
Obama frowned, and then asked, "But how do I know the people around me are really intelligent?"
The Queen took a sip of tea. "Oh, that's easy; you just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle."
The Queen pushed a button on her intercom. "Please send Tony Blair in here, would you?"
Tony Blair walked into the room and said, "Yes, my Queen?"
The Queen smiled and said, "Answer me this please, Tony, your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?"
Without pausing for a moment, Tony Blair answered, "That would be me."
"Yes! Very good," said the Queen.
Obama went back home to ask Joe Biden, his vice president the same question.
"Joe, answer this for me. Your mother and your father have a child. It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it?"
"I'm not sure," said Biden. "Let me get back to you on that one..."
He went to his advisors and asked every one, but none could give him an answer.
Finally, he ended up in the men's room and recognized Colin Powell's shoes in the next stall.
Biden asked Powell, "Colin, can you answer this for me? Your mother and father have a child and it's not your brother or your sister. Who is it?"
Colin Powell yelled back, "That's easy, it's me!"
Biden smiled, and said, "Thanks!" Then, he went back to speak with Obama.
"Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It's Colin Powell!"
Obama got up, stomped over to Biden, and angrily yelled into his face, "No! You idiot! It's Tony Blair!"

Bowler Exposes Himself At Tournament

I have been upset at bowling tournaments in my life. Sometimes it was due to the performance of my teammates, and sometimes due to my own inability to perform. I have taken out my frustrations in many ways, including cursing, kicking the ball return, and one of my favorites, beer.

However, no matter how upset I have been, I have never felt the urge to expose myself during a tournament. New Zealand bowler David File did. At an Easter tournament, he and his tournaments were struggling, and he "flopped out his old fella" as he eloquently stated, to let him teammates know they were bowling like a bunch of d**kheads. What did File earn for this incident? A 10 year ban from bowling. Let this be a lesson to all you young and inspiring bowlers out there. Under no circumstances should you flop out the old fella when you are bowling bad!

Why Is Sweet Tea So Expensive?

I have asked myself this question so many times, and yet I cannot gather an answer that makes sense. It seems like in the past few years, tea has gotten almost unaffordable to order at a restaurant. In many cases, if there is a beer special, it is cheaper to have a beer!

For example, I went out to eat the other night at BW3's. My wife ordered a sweet tea, and I of course had two beers because if I am going to spend money on something other than water, it is going to have alcohol. Her tea cost around $2.20 plus tax. Prior to eating my wings I ordered, I ate a salad. The side salad was only $2.99. For an extra 80 cents, as opposed to only getting a few glasses of colored water with a little sugar, I got a salad with crips iceburg lettuce, tomato, cheese, onions, croutons, bacon bits, and ranch dressing. Let's think about that. A cow had to be raised to produce milk so we could have the cheese and ranch. A pig had to be raised so we could have the bacon. Multiple farmers had to grow the lettuce, onion, and tomato, and all were probably shipped separately on transport trucks. The tea is one plant that is dried and tied into a small pouch that heated water passes over and then they add a little sugar. How could these two products cost the same?

As for me, I will never drink tea again as I refuse to pay over two dollars for colored sugar water.
