Mixed News On Tuesday

Hey Peeps, and anyone else checking in. A special “hey” goes out to Ms. Hazel Mae.

Tuesday brings a mixed bag of news – unfortunately some of it not of the “ha ha” kind. Condolences go out to Mr. Walter Gretzky and family. Mrs. Phyllis Gretzky lost her battle with cancer yesterday, leaving behind her husband Walter, five children (the most notable being Wayne) and 12 grandchildren. If you are a hockey fan, you have to want pass along your condolences to Wayne Gretzky and family. The Phoenix Coyotes website might be your first point of reference to pass along a card, email or voicemail to the Gretzkys.

Yesterday at the ACC, Eddie Belfour recorded his 448th win against the New York Islanders. The win, while not a pretty one – having given up six goals - still moves Eddie the Eagle past former Maple Leaf Terry Sawchuk (who many consider to be the best of all time). Belfour isn’t likely to come close to overall Wins Leader Patrick Roy, who recorded 551 victories. Good for Belfour, one of the NHL’s fiercest competitors – note to all Leaf haters, Don’t even start with talk about Belfour’s competitive streak…its his day, let him enjoy it.

Jeremy Roenick is at it again. Team America (hehehe, I’m sure Canadian readers see the humour in that) named its roster for the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin. Roenick lambasted USA Hockey, stating that their decision to leave him off the team had more to do with punishing him for not participating in the last two World Cups, than a reflection of his sup par stats and possibly having lost a step – Roenick used the term “blackballing”. To know J.R. is to want to shove a dunkin’ donut (given that he is a Boston native) or something else in that big mouth of his to shut his word hole. Once again, Roenick has put his own interests ahead of the interests of his team and his country –

“I'm one of the guys that have gotten the USA to where it is today."

"To not have the opportunity to go back one more time and try and win the gold is obviously, in my opinion, very disrespectful,"

"There's nobody on the Olympic team that's scored more points than I have, who's had a career like I've had in terms of physicality and putting points on the board and being a leader,"

Gee, and you wonder why a guy like J.R. has never won a Stanley Cup…I mean, with selfless leadership qualities like this - oh yeah, in case you were wondering, Roenick “was pleased” that his team mate Craig Conroy made the team. I am willingly bet that Roenick comes out before the Olympics and says he is going for Team Canada…count on it. Speaking of which…Hazel, you are pulling for Team Canada right? I mean…you still associate more with Team Canada right?

Kyle Boller of the Ravens gets a Hazie for his performance against Green Bay last night. He threw a couple of ducks up there last night, but the still managed to throw for 253 yards and 3 TDs.

Your excitement is mounting, and all your plans can be considered completed. A romantic encounter will make you realize how lucky you are. A new direction will turn out to be better than you imagined. 5 stars

A new direction? You mean like a click from here over to Hazelspeeps at yahoo? A Holiday message to the peeps? Hahahaha I know, I know.

Well, I’m wrapping this up for this afternoon…I’ve got a few things to get done here before a 7.5 km run after work – its actually nice here today, a bit overcast with an air temp of -2 C with no wind.

Have a great one peeps….Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world.

Song of the Day on Hazelspeeps…for Jeremy Roenick who wanted to be part of Team America (hehehe) the Torino Edition – dance music classic from the 80’s…from three hot Latinas (Cubans)..worth the download. I’m sure Hazel has heard and grooved to it.

Let Me Be The One – Expose
