All About Austin Powers

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

Interesting news that didn't make the Wednesday entry - but would have.


Tour de France officials announced today that Tour winner Floyd Landis tested for high levels of testosterone/epitestosterone during the race - if Landis' B sample shows a positive result, he could be stripped of his victory.

Landis' team has already suspended him pending the second test result. You probably don't care about cycling, but it is an interesting story nonetheless.

For those of you wondering - Lance Armstrong had no comment.


Let me introduce you to Denver Broncos punter Todd Sauerbrun, who lost his appeal of a league ruling and will be suspended for the first four weeks of the NFL season after testing positive for ephedra - which he ingested by taking a dietary supplement to lost weight.

Unlike Bengals' coach Marvin Lewis - Broncos coach Mr. Ed (oops - Mike "big front teeth" Shanahan) told Sauerbrun that he was very disappointed. Shanahan went on to say "He's the only guy on the team which I don't care if he's fat. I don't care if he's 30 lbs overweight. All you've got to do is punt the ball." Classic.

Sauerbrun didn't take Shanahan's comments very well, retorting - "Well, I care if I'm fat."

The Boston Herald reports that one of Hazel's idols - ESPN'S Chris Berman, and her significant other Steve Levy, "stormed the stage" at a concert in Boston to perform with Huey Lewis and the News and Chicago.

While the obvious question would be "WHY?", I had to ask myself...what does it take to "storm the stage" at a Huey Lewis concert? What there was 60? 70? people there? What are you guys - 18? 19? I'm wondering if they did a duet on one of Huey's classics "If this is it"... Berman is such a ham he probably tried to sing "Heart and Soul". I won't get into any possibilities on Chicago's sets...cuz that would be like starting a rumour or placing doubt.

Geezus guys - for Hazel's sakes - can you friggin pretend to be cool? Pretend like you are hip? Like its 2006 and not 1983? Please?

Note: if you are wondering about the title - go to Deadspin and do a search for the best Chris Berman story you will ever read.

That's about it for tonight - I'm going to yahoo to answer my girl Renee who is slapping me around there again tonight. Tonight's topic is whether or not Boston should retire Curt Schilling's number when he retires...if you have read this page in the past, you know that I'm definitely in the NO WUCKING FAY camp.

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world - and if you are indeed checking in, you got a chuckle out of the shout out to your boys.

Song of the Night on Hazelspeeps - for Chris and Steve, those wild and wacky stage stormers

I Need A New Drug - Huey Lewis and the News
