I am not what one would call a huge wrestling fan. But I have spent many a Monday night watching the WWF (yea, yea name change) with my little brother, who is a huge wrestling fan. As such, I am filled shock and horror every time I read new information about what happened with Chris Benoit over the weekend. I simply cannot grasp what kind of dysfunction had to happen in order to lead to something like this. And yet, I will be reading with sick fascination to find out more about what happened.

It's such a shame that the cool wrestling guys are the ones that have turned up dead recently. Might be something in the water, so to speak.

The Shooter has left the building

Admittedly, I did not turn into a big, big Giants fan until I was in high school. But I do remember Rod Beck. He was the fiercest closer I've ever seen. Dude looked like he'd kick your ass and then spit on you while you lay on the ground crying. Which is why I was super sad to see that he'd died. I hope that there's nothing shady about his death cause it would be a shame for people not to remember him well. Rest well Shooter. You'll be missed.

Bobby Cox is a record breaker

I am not a fan of the Atlanta Braves. Not by a long shot. A part of my heart smiles when I think of how they won their division for over a decade and only have one World Series title to show for it. Nevertheless, manager Bobby Cox is always good for a laugh since he gets thrown out for arguing almost every game. And now he is close to breaking New York Giants manager John McGraw's record of 131 ejections from games. I suppose that is something to be proud of.

George Clooney for Peace

I have never watched a full episode of "The Office" before. But I may have to start considering that I am developing a crush on John Krasinski after watching him on Conan. The boy is quite funny. You have to watch at least the first 3 minutes so you can see his plan for how the Army can use George Clooney to save the world.

Hockey Headlines

Allow me to express my extreme dismay over the trading of Sharks goalie Vesa Toskala to the Maple Leafs. (Scroll down past the Vokoun trade) In my opinion Vesa was the better goalie. He was always far more consistent than Nabokov, and far more focused. He played well no matter how bad things got, and generally, if he was on the ice, things didn't get bad for the Sharks. The Sharks seemed better able to rally around Vesa and win, or at least score, when they often came up short on run support for Nabby. It seemed that, at least until the post season. even the Sharks themselves felt more secure with Vesa on the ice.

I'm not surprised Vesa got traded, I think most Sharks fans saw that coming a mile away. And I don't entirely believe that Nabby is horrible either. He IS good, he was amazing this past post season and he stepped his game up a lot from the previous year. I just feel that in the long run Vesa will be the more solid performer of the two. And now he'll be guarding the net of a different team. And that annoys me.
