We look good in gold

So many people doubted Canada's ability to get gold in men's hockey at the Olympic games but of course all those people turn their heads around once they saw Sid scoring in OT. I never doubted our team once even after the USA defeat. "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." - Martin Luther King Jr.

(10:06 PM) (sn)snαíl gαrу: we will prob lose
(10:07 PM) (sn)snαíl gαrу:
vs russians
i dont see us getting gold
(10:07 PM) Richard:
haha i cant say that
i have too much canadian pride
(10:07 PM) (sn)snαíl gαrу:
gotta be realistic
(10:07 PM) Richard:
if u aint 1st u last

Sorry Gary not picking on you but I had to use an example, a lot of people didn't think we would beat the tough Russians.

"If you ain't first, you last!" - Ricky Bobby
Canadian Pride! We look good in gold!

Chuck Liddell's naked workout

*Please don't watch if you're under 18 even if its censored*

This video was released yesterday and I'm pretty sure its actually Chuck in there with his gf Heidi Northcott. As for if this was an actual creeper sneaking up on Liddell's home I just have to say if he was a creeper, this kid has got balls of steel for doing it.

I can't wait for what Chuck has to say to the video. And I REALLY want to know what Dana White is going to say about the incident. Tito is probably going to mention it during the trash talks once the fight is close enough.

So whats my opinion on this video? I think its hilarious. Come on, this is Chuck Liddell. Most mma fans can tell you he is the type of guy who does that kind of crap. Its not like Kanye West's rude ass jumping on stage to ruin Taylor Swift's speech or Tiger Wood's massive cheat party. Chuck didn't do anything wrong here. So he works out butt naked, sure its a bit odd but he's in the privacy of his own home. The only nasty thing about this video is the creeper filming it.

I want my room back

Its not like I was planning to sleep now but its almost 2am and there are 5 people in my room >_>. When the heck are they going to leave. The room is gonna smell like crap when I walk in and its going to be freezing because I'll assume the window is open. Hopefully studying for BU121 will keep me awake and they will leave before I'm done studying tonight.

2:13am - Heyy not too bad, they left. I guess I should learn from a friend and always look towards the bright side. I guess they could have came in the living room and played ps2 right in front of me but they didn't so I'm happy for that.

3:50am - I went back in my room to get something and wow it smells horrible in there. How am I going to sleep?
Joannie Rochette!

Oh yeah this is random but Joannie Rochette makes me feel so proud to be a Canadian. She's #1 in my books. Being able to perform at such a high level when something that painful hit her life? She's stronger than I'll ever be.

The Asian Math Challenge

I have my math midterm today and here is my challenge I'm putting on myself. To never open my math textbook (still haven't) and see what mark I can achieve.

Someone buy me nose plugs!

I'm just in my room trying to study for BU121 but I'm trying not to pass out. Someone is in my room and honestly, their smell is so deadly, I think it can literally make a small child pass out. My roommate opened the window all the way and opened all the doors to try and air out the smell but its not exactly helping. I'm freezing right now but I rather be cold than to smell it even more.

Its over already?

I think everyone's reading week just flew by too quickly. For those of you who were productive during this week I envy you. But in saying that, if reading week was another week I'll probably do the exact same things I did. Here is my rating on myself for productivity (1-10):

Friday (12th) - Wednesday = 3
Thursday and Friday = 5
Saturday and Sunday = 9

Does being productive for 2 days make up the for rest of the week? I don't think so, I guess I'll have to catch up these coming weeks.
I love this photo cause there is a random foot when someone fell

I don't have many clear photos from the parties and the ones I do have I don't think some of the people in them want me to show them here so you guys can use your imagination. But I have a couple of other photos I stole from other people haha. Drinking 6 days during reading sometimes didn't feel good.It was fun seeing my high school friends again, its been a while since we were all together. Hopefully after 1st year is over we will all be able to hangout at the same time. I was planning to make a video of us but that will have to wait another couple of months until I'm more free.
A random photo I found on fb of you guys

I finally got to see my fmm friends again. I say I don't get to see my high school friends much but I only see my fmm friends about twice a year but some how we are still the greatest of friends. Some day I'll go with you guys to Panama, probably after Laurier. You guys seem to have so much fun riding doonbuggies, ATVs, and shooting glocks. Have fun going to Panama next week Jaime.UFC 110 wasn't too bad. Cain Velasquez knocking out Nogueira? That was a strong finish. And Mirko Cro Cop was killer with his stoppage too. The nachos were great Dennis, I remember every one was like "woah, where did you buy these" Ill have to see if I'm able to make as good nachos as you.Fun week, but play times over, time to get down to work.

"Call a amulampse!"

Vietnam veteran are too badass to mess with!

Its hard to tell who started the verbal fight but the white guy moved away to not cause any more drama and the black guy is the one who initiates the fight. Obviously he did not end it well... I hope he learned something from this, old guys with a beard = someone you don't want to mess with.

I am a robot

I was planning to post the video of Tiger apologizing here but I decided to not waste 13 minutes of your life on Tiger Woods doing nothing but reading a script. 99% of the time he was looking down on the papers who someone else probably wrote for him. Come on, at least memorize the damn thing, you had months to prepare for this. His pauses and sighs are completely planned which made him seem not even truly sorry for what he did to his Wife and Family. Tiger Wood's speech was so terrible it made Chris Brown's apology to Rihanna bearable.As far as Tiger coming back to the PGA, I wouldn't mind seeing him play again, but does he really expect to come back and not answer any questions?At least draw a timeline or something.

"Are you stupid?"

Note to Olympic reporters planning to interview a gold medalist: Make sure you know which gold medalist you're talking to.

I like this guy, he cleared up the idea the the reporter was an American not a Canadian. And to the lady in the video, screw you for saying Canada and America are behind in speed skating, we play hockey, a real man's sport. A sport where men test their strengths while not wearing spandex.

The Toothfairy!

After a podium victory its normal to bite the medal at the Olympic games. One German took it too far and chipped his tooth from biting his Silver medal too hard.Looking at the picture, it's no wonder that he lost part of his tooth. Look at the pressure he is putting on that poor medal!

I'm not sure if the toothfairy comes if its a chipped tooth but if they do, I sure hope its not Dwayne Johnson!
Never seen the movie but it looks ridiculously stupid.

Pound 4 Pound

Recently I read on the idea of "pound 4 pound" is ridiculous. The person who posted the forum said it was something made up by the UFC because they couldn't sign Fedor Emelianenko. These people claim the Heavyweight belt is the top of the food chain because it means you are literally the best MMA fighter in the world. Surprisingly, this guy got a lot of rednecks to agree with his ideas.Having the HW title probably does mean you can beat any one in the cage but saying P4P is only a myth is foolish! Mixed Martial Arts is a sport, not a backyard brawl and thats why there are weight classes. Are these same people also claiming Manny Pacquiao isn't one of the best pound for pound boxers in the world only because he weighs in at 140?, why is your site full of these redneck MMA fans who are probably only fans of Matt Hughes and Tim Silvia (the 2 biggest redneck fighters in the UFC in my opinion).

Demar Derozan

Yes he's only 20 but you are looking at the next slam dunk champion. Help put T-dot back on the map Dero!

He has never lost a dunk competition, and I can't wait until he wins the ridiculous dunk in contest tonight. He'll have to waste a few of his dunks but I hope he's saving the best for last tomorrow night at the actual contest.The Compton Kid is here!

MMA Fighting Sterotypes

Big white American guy with good physique = a lay and pray wrestler (Ryan Bader)

Tubby white fighter with tribal tattoos = garbage brawler who fights on UFN undercards

Brazilian guy = automatically better than any American fighter (Anderson Silva)

Black fighter = athletic and explosive (Rashad Evans)

Dutch fighter = "K-1 level" striking but zero sub defense

Asian fighter = undersized due to a lack of weight cutting; will fail in America (pretty much true for all Asian fighters)

British fighter = overrated can brought over to expand UFC market overseas

Popeyes for Dinner!

Usually my econ prof is pretty down to earth and never yells, but today she yelled twice at people walking in late and sitting in the middle of the rows. They were both Asian so its either shes a racist or shes Either or, I don't want to be yelled at by her, it was too embarrassing.

My math TA failed pretty hard today. We were doing matrices and he did it wrong on the board and couldn't find the problem for at least 5 minutes. A student had to help him. Sad times. Also he said he doesn't believe in "SOHCAHTOA" which I find retarded.

Dinner at Xin's today. Lots of Popeyes!And when I say alot of Popeyes I do mean ALOT of Popeyes.1:30am - I'm putting together my business case only to find my other group members parts aren't too strong. I think I'm going to rewrite most of it.... Lack of sleep here I come. I miss my new venture group!!!

2:02am - I just realized one member of my case group did the implementation and another did the recommendation which are practically the same parts -___- This is getting annoying.

Lay and Pray fighting

"I hope Anderson (Silva) wins (at UFC 112) because I think Vitor (Belfort) is a lot tougher fighter," Sonnen said after UFC 109. "If I had to choose between the two, I'm going to take the low road and take the easier opponent to the championship." - Chael SonnenThere are two ways I see why Sonnen is talking so much trash in the MMA world.

1) He is simply trying to make a name for himself because he was not well known to the fans before his rants about how everyone else sucks in the UFC. Although people are hating on him now, he is still being talked about because of his dick attitude. Any publicity is good publicity.

2) He truly believes Belfort is the better fighter which I can respect because you can't argue with someone's opinion of who is a better fighter. What I don't like is how he is going on to say Silva won't last 10 minutes in his neighborhood. You have to have more respect for one of the best pound for pound fighters of all time.
Sonnen said his style will beat Silva. Whats Sonnen's style? Wrestling? Maybe you should ask Hendo how wrestlers do against the MW champ before you talk.

Superbowl Weekend "Who Dat!"

1st off I was extremely disappointed I got up early for no reason because the Raptors vs Kings game was on TSN2 and I don't have that channel down here. I hate TSN2! At least Raps won and we are 5 games over 500! Chris Bosh = A starting All-Star, better than Garnett
My beautiful breakfast/ lunch

I got a visit from my sister today and she brought me some food (junk food) to last the final week before I go home. I remember she asked me what I needed and I responded "Uhh I haven't had chinese food in a while, do you think you can bring me some Cantonese chow mein?" And she did! Thanks Christine.
Getto ATMs in Waterloo

Xin, Calvin, Swapan, Sri ram and I officially got the lease for our house next year today! Can't wait for 2nd year with them. Xin tried to get his deposit from the most getto ATM where he would put in $400 and it would only give him half of the money. I don't know what happened but I think he might have got robbed $20 because the machine wasn't working properly. Poor university kids can't afford that sort of stuff!
I'd rather have nachos but Lays will have to do
Of course we needed hotdogs for the Superbowl

The Superbowl was tonight and my team (Colts) lost. But its hard to fight against the Saints with Drew Brees as QB. Calvin (the only guy cheering for New Orleans) was so happy when they got an interception. I'm not a fan of N.O but WHO DAT? haha. Maybe next year Manning...
We had to get some beers for the game

Calvin came after his Dragonboat practice and brought us some chicken wings and Xin was so excited (har har). He put one in his mouth only to realize they were extremely hot. Almost as hot as the H-bomb. We survived it, just barely. Its still not sitting right in my stomach.
The killer chicken wings
It's so killer Xin needs to ice his lips!

Ps. I hate Chael Sonnen! You ruined UFC 109 for me! Nate the Great still deserves a title shot more than Belfort in my eyes.

Glen 'Big Baby' Davis

Nicknames are great, they define a person with only a couple of words. Glen Davis' nick name is 'Big Baby' and you know what? It suits him 100%. If you didn't know, Glen Davis cried on the bench last year when Kevin Garnett yelled at him for a misplay. Now he is crying like a 10 year old kid about his nickname.He said he would like to drop his 'Big Baby' nickname. When asked what he'd like to use in place of it, a reporter suggested "Uno. Uno." Davis smiled and agreed. Umm Glen, Uno Uno? How about no no (bad joke). I'm sorry but what the heck is a "Uno Uno"?

Nicknames are given to you, you can't simply start calling yourself a ridiculous name and expect others to follow. Suck it up and do what you are paid to do, and that is to play basketball. "There's no crying in baseball" - Tom Hanks (Movie: A League of Their Own) Just like Tom Hanks said, there's no crying in baseball, and there's no crying in basketball either!

Whether your nickname is Big Baby or not, I'll always know you as the guy who hit the buzzer beater and then pushes a fat kid.
The pushing is seen clearly at the end of the video

Rule 1: Don't watch porn while you are on live T.V.

If you are going to look at soft porn at work, make sure there is not a TV camera behind you broadcasting live to the nation.

LOST: A never ending confusion

Yes! Its finally here! The final season millions of die hard fans have been waiting for is out. I have not watched the end of season 5 since it came out last May so my memory is a bit blurry with the show (like it needs to be any more confusing). To be honest, I don't even remember Jacob dying.I don't know how to feel knowing John Locke is now the smoke monster. So I guess Locke is still dead and the smoke monster can turn itself into other people? So many question and so little answers!
Jack and the rest of the gang are captured by 'the Others' again, what a surprise... And now you find out Locke (or the smoke monster) is going to try and break into the temple. John Locke is my hero! He shouldn't be made into a villain.

What is most confusing is there were 2 dimensions. One where they are still on the island. And the second is how life would have been if the crash never happened. But what I don't understand from the 2nd dimension is why is Desmond there? He wasn't on Oceanic 815. Can this be any more confusing ><.
I'm sorry but I love this picture

I need to rewatch all 6 seasons once the entire show is done to connect everything because everything in the show has its own special meaning.

UFC 109: Relentless

Let me just start off by saying this UFC109 has the most Americans in any card I've ever seen. 17/22 fighters are American!

Randy Couture vs. Mark Coleman
You know, I could bash this fight like everyone else by mentioning their age but I have too much respect for both fighters to do that. 4 out of the 5 UFC champs are/were injured and having the first hall of famer fight between 2 legends is about the best main-event people could have hoped for. My prediction will be it will go all 3 rounds with Randy being victorious, but its hard to say that knowing Coleman doesn't have the same gas tank as he did when he was young.

Coleman's going to go for a double leg take down and use the same old ground and pound that made him a legend. Couture is going to push Coleman into the cage and use his style of dirty boxing with a few take downs here and there when Coleman becomes exhausted.

Nate Marquardt vs Chael Sonnen
Its no secret I think Marquardt should be the fighter facing Anderson Silva at UFC 112 but of course, Dana and I never see eye to eye. Sonnen has everything to gain by defeating Nate but I don't see Nate gaining much from winning. In saying that, Sonnen isn't an easy win either, he took the Dan Miller fight on a 20 day notice and he won it! Hes a tough fighter.

I hope Marquardt finishes the fight in dramatic fashion and leave no questions on the next #1 contender for the MW belt.

p.s. shout out to Maia because hes 1 of the best jiu jitsu fighters in the world and after he wins at 109, he will b at the top of the MW division once again

Matt Serra vs. Frank Trigg
Usually I don't cheer for 1 of the 2 men who ever beat GSP but I'll make an exception when his opponent is Dewey Franklin Trigg III (his actual name). I see Serra more dangerous on the feet and on the ground. Trigg is a wrestler so look for some good GnP. I say Serra via TKO. We'll see if the angry midget can win this fight without it going to the judges because I know he hates them (referring to Serra vs. Hughes fight). I'm not saying I believed Serra beat Hughes but it was definitely a close match.

Raptors Progress

1) A 5 game winning streak
2) 4 games over 500
3) Victories over the Lakers, Magic, and Mavericks last month
Yes ladies and gentlemen I'm talking about the Toronto Raptors.

So before the season began I wrote a blog about where the Raptors would be this season and I just wanted to see where the progress is.
Raptors will finish either 5th or 6th: Currently 5th
Bosh will have a career year: Averaging 24 ppg and 11 rpg, yes definitely a career year
Raptors will be 10 games over 500: I still think its possible, difficult, but possible
High hopes for DeRosan: Hes getting better as the season moves along and helps bring the much needed energy during the beginning of the game. Also, I can't wait to see him in the 'dunk in' even if I think that idea is retarded.
Turkoglu will be a great addition for the Raptors: Okay, maybe he hasn't lived up to his expectations and I have to say, I've been hating a bit on Turk, but he will be key during the playoffs. He needs to prove to me he can play like he did last year before I call him Mr. 4th quarter.
The Raptors' schedule seems much easier than the beginning of the season and I hope we capitalize on the up coming games. Lets not forget the return of Reggie Evans after the all-star game will strengthen the team's defence.
