Hazel - We Have A Problem

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

Another miserable ending at the ACC last night - the Maple Leafs are blowing 3rd period leads like a cheap downtown corner hooker. The under-manned Leafs, who went into the game missing six regulars, played the SenaTards even up for most of the night and looked like they were going to steal a victory when recent call-up Boyd Devereaux scored late in the 3rd. Yet another defensive breakdown led to the game tying goal, and the Tards scored a bad one in O/T for the win. Hazel, you did your bit for the Red Sox in 2004 - its time to take a vacation and get yourself on up to Toronto to sprinkle the ACC with good Karma...Leaf Nation is on bended knee asking you to help the Buds out.

Things in the NFC became a lot more clear yesterday with the Giants sealing up a Wild Card berth with a win over the Washington Redskins. As they have done all season, the Giants built up a big lead and almost blew it. Three teams from the NFC East make it to the post-season...I'd like to say that it is the best division in the NFL - but that might be stretching it a bit.

Portuguese International Cristiano Ronaldo scores a double for the third consecutive game to lead Manchester United to a 3-2 victory over Reading. Ronaldo has to be considered the best player on the planet as 2006 comes to a close. For those of you who are new to the page - we like to highlight great performances by Portuguese athletes.

New York Giants RB Tiki Barber carried the Giants into the playoffs with a 34-28 win over the Redskins last night. Barber rushed for 234 yards on 23 carries and had 3 TDs, including two long runs. Yeah, it saved us from a really tough night on the Three Play.

Nashville Predators G Chris Mason stopped 38 shots in a 5-0 win over the Bruins in the Music City last night. Yeah, we know Hazel probably wouldn't be down with highlighting a star who was responsible for a Bruins' loss...but hey, we call em like we see em.

Well, San Jose and the SenaTards have absolutely killed us this week - the Sharks should be harpooned after the performance they put on in Phoenix last night. Still though, we can overcome the deficit we are in going into Week 17. We are at - $88 for the week - time to get well this afternoon.

Kansas City -2.5 over Jacksonville - the Chiefs are champs at Arrowhead, the Jags are road wimps. We'll take Larry Johnson to end the season on a high note with a big game against the Jags. Lay $75 on the Chiefs.

Houston -5 over Cleveland - the Browns end another awful season on the road, there is no pressure on them. The Texans will look to finish the season on a high note with two straight home wins. Lay $75 on the Texans.

New England +3 over Tennessee - the Patriots won't roll over for the Titans in this game. Any time you get points with the Pats, you have to take them. Lay $50 on the Pats and say thank you.

That's about it for today gang - have a great one peeps!


You are better off taking flight and going somewhere where you can bring in the new year in a grandiose manner. Just get lost in the crowd. Your candor will enable you to make choices that will bring about a better year. 4 stars

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world - Leaf Nation will pick up the tab for your flight home to help the Buds.

Song of the Day on Hazelspeeps - yesterday morning, I listened to a radio program called the History of New Music with Alan Cross; The Clash's front man Joe Strummer was the artist in the spotlight. I completely forgot to mention that December 22 marked the fourth anniversary of Strummer's passing. Strummer is without a doubt one of the most important, if not THE MOST IMPORTANT, figure in the history of rock music. If you are a fan of alternative music - your favourite bands were likely influenced by Joe Strummer and The Clash (than includes one of Hazel's favourites, Pearl Jam). If you have never heard anything by The Clash - go listen to it; if you have, reacquaint yourself with the band that was once referred to as "The only band that mattered." The Clash broke all the rules in the music industry - too many to list, but think of this...they were the first, and only, band to reach a mass audience with a message of social justice and political reform. Rest in peace Joe.

So for the next week, our song of the day will be a song by the Clash. Today's song - their first single.

White Riot - The Clash

Peesth Out...Buh Bye!
