2008– is possibly the greatest sports year of all time. There was the Giants upset over the evil empire: the New England Patriots. We had possibly the greatest tennis match of all time: Nadal over Federer at Wimbledon. There was the incredible Kansas-Memphis title game, where KU came back in the last few minutes and won in overtime. Of course, we had the greatest US Open of all time with Tiger Woods legendary victory on a broken leg. Even the NBA had its day in the sun with a Lakers vs. Celtics final. 2008 is also the year of Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt’s incredible performance at the Olympics. All we need is a cherry on top, how about the ending of a 100 years of futility by a certain Midwestern baseball team?
Smith, Alex was the 1st pick of the 49ers in the 2004 draft, who we will never know how good he is. He has had 4 offensive coordinators and 4 no. 1 receivers. Currently, he is the back-up to journeyman J.T. O’Sullivan, who has been let go by 6 teams previously. Alex is a guy who we all want to do well, but for a variety of reasons hasn’t put it together yet, and he may never get the opportunity to.
Facebook is a social networking site. It allows you to keep up with people. Some that you care about, and a few who you have tried to forget. It is also responsible for the term “facebook friends,” which is a new word for an acquittance who is on your friend list, but you don’t actually talk with. It is also soley responsible for causing people to think in “status updates.” I cannot tell you how many times during a day I complete the sentence in my head, “Aaron is…”
Biden, Joe is Barack Obama’s Vice President Nominee. He is supposed to help Obama with some of the Hillary Clinton vote, Catholics, and those who don’t think Barack is strong enough in National Security. Most importantly, he wrestled the nickname “Scrappy kid from Scranton” away from Dwight K. Schrute.
VH1 is the show that has perfected the art of “car wreck TV.” Rarely is there something meaningful on VH1, but yet we are easily drawn into such classics as “I love the ____,” “100 greatest Songs of the ______,” and “40 greatest ________ moments.” I have wasted too many evenings (by that I mean more than 1 evening) on these entertaing, addicting, and pointless shows.
