NFL… I will miss you! [Super Bowl XLIII is almost here]

In A-Blurb on January 30, 2009 at 12:00 pm

Of all the “northern hemisphere” sports the one that really grabbed my attention and I religiously follow every year is football. Since 2002, when the Buccaneers won the Super Bowl XXXVII and they used to count with a “south of their border” kicker in the team, I’ve followed this sport… and I love it.

Don’t ask me why, I do not have a straight answer to be honest! It just happened…! Now, every single year, I reserve for myself the Super Bowl Sunday. I can do sacrifices during the season like missing a Sunday night or Monday night game, not watching some particular Bret Favre game in order to preserve the family peace… but Super Sunday is not negotiable!

And every year it’s the same… The game ends, the TV goes off and I feel some emptiness that nothing will fill untill next September. Or may be some very selected dosis of NBA… but that depends on how well the Spurs are doing.


Now that the strike is over…

…next time you got into a bus do not forget to give your driver “that look” expressing everything you think with no words.

Make him/her feel your love!!!

I’ve heard about this video this morning while having my morning dose of CFRA, and it’s good…

I’ve heard that Para Transpo drivers are not allowing blind people in their buses. The say blind people can walk and therefore they do not need to use a special service like theirs.

Was it always like that? Or is it really something new?

Amazingly natural

Bandobras writes a post on some winter birds he spotted where he lives.

I don’t know if it is because I come from a huge city where the only known animals were cats, dogs, rats and roaches but I cannot stop surprising my self with all the nature life around the cities in Canada. When I lived in Waterloo, ON we had the chance to rent a place with a big pond close to the backyard and it was amazing to observe all the life it had during the whole year! Now that I live in Kanata I know that the day I crash with my car because I cannot stop looking at the deers @ Eagleson Rd. is not far away…

I had to kill one of these the other day... and I do not feel sorry!

And what if it’s not about the schedule after all?

I was reading XUP’s post about ideas to end the transit strike and it was the perfect spot to leave my impression. I was thinking that, may be, this is not about the schedule but about offering the Union Leader the correct thing… You know… Some “collaboration”, some “special gift”… well, given the rough time ahead… who would not like some savings… You got the idea…

Show Me The Money!

Larry, go ahead! You have to do what you have to do!

Deep, painful and short…

…and it was not my wife talking about me!

Nop… it was the Bank of Canada talking about recession. The thing is what is their concept of  “short”…!


The View From My Window

I love the view from my windows. When you have to spend  most of your day in your cubicle, you better have a good view, right?
