Kevin Smith, Tiger Woods and My Opinion, Because I Know You Care

I've not had a good ol' southern fried hissy fit on current events in a while, so here are my opinions on the latest:

Tiger Woods- Do we really need a press conference? He's a GOLFER for God's sake, who cheated on his wife.. ALOT. We all know he's not sorry for cheating, he's just trying to save what's left of his reputation and wishing he never got caught. He's worried about endorsement contracts, not his marriage. I don't even care that he cheated, I just don't see why there has to be a big press conference when a sports personality can't keep his Wanderin' Willy in his pants.


The Olympics- I've watched maybe twenty minutes total. When I was younger, I'd be glued to the set, rooting for the U.S.A. I loved the ice skating, the skiing.. but now? It seems different. Too polished and flashy. I'm not entirely sure if it's the games that have changed or if it's me, but I just can't get into it.

The Snow- Can we give it a flippen rest already? It's snowing AGAIN. In the SOUTH. This ain't right ya'll.

And For the "What the Hell?" Category:

Sorry, I had to toss that in there.

My Boss- It must really suck to go through life being that blessed miserable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It's no wonder he had a heart attack in the past. It's a shame they had to remove it. He could use one.

Jay Leno- Just. Shut. Up. You suck turtle toes. No one cares. Go away.

Kevin Smith- Southwest Airlines recently booted actor-director Kevin Smith from one of it's flights sighting his weight as a safety hazard. I've followed Mr. Smith's updates on Twitter as the story has unfolded and I've got a few thoughts on the situation. First, if this had happened to me, I would have cowered somewhere in the fetal position, crying for a week out of embarrassment. To Kevin Smith I say, give 'em hell.

Second, are there actual weight limitations? Mr. Smith was able to secure his seat belt without the aid of an extension. I thought that was the determining factor? It sounds to me like it's up to the discretion of the personnel on duty as to whether someone is "too fat to fly." Gee, catch Lucille on a bad day and she might toss Paris Hilton to the tarmac for retaining a little water.

While I'm sure I'll fly again, I can promise you I'll never set foot on a Southwest Airlines flight.

Bubbleboo- Lawd have mercy, please forgive me. Bubbleboo was so kind to bestow upon me an award:

Positive. Creative. Inspring.

I'm so late in accepting this award, that Bubbleboo has moved her blog since she gave it to me.

*hangs head in shame*

I always feel uncomfortable picking a few people out of the many blogs writers I admire to give awards to, so I encourage you to please check the "Brain Candy" section of my sidebar for lots of great blogs and check back often, the feed listing changes to reflect the latest postings.

And there you have it. My opinion. Because I know you care.

Later Taters!

Oh yes, yes we do care.

Your award is deserved. If I had such a thing I would bestow it on you.

Yes Mr. Woods is a just a rich, very rich, pro golfer but I think his apology was sincere and not at all self serving. He made no excuses and admitted how wrong he was and promised to try to become a better person. He went out of his way to defend his wife and hold her blameless. I, for one, hope he can save his marriage. Only time will tell, but I hope he does what many don't and becomes a better person.

. . and the press is complaining that Tiger didn't take questions! What right do they have to question him about this? Good God - people need to let it go! And Kevin Smith - how humiliating can it be?! Awful.

I don't care about Tiger.

I've probably watched more of the Olympics this year than I have since Mary Lou Retton won the gold in women's gymnastics.

What is funny about this Kevin Smith thing is that my aunt and uncle used to fly (on the puddle jumpers) and they were both much larger than Smith but they did sit on opposite sides of the plane to balance the weight. If he fastened the safety belt without an extension... WTF?
