What a disheartening game this weekend. I know I am biased, but I was absolutely positive the Jacksonville Jaguars would beat the Indianapolis Colts. I would have put money on it... all my Christmas money. I mean, you've got a team that has the talent and the blueprint to beat them... what more do you need? Well, obviously three field goals.

Anyway, while a win against the Colts would have been nice, it was good to see both KC and San Diego lose, keeping us firmly entrenched in the #5 spot for the wild card. Hopefully we'll have one more chance to topple the Colts and their hillbilly quarterback.

Google kicks ass. They pretty much clean up in any application they decide to do. I'm not just kissing their ass because they host this website, but their search engine has always been the best, when they do email they do it better than anyone else, when they do a mapping program they do it better than anyone else. And now Google Earth. I now have Google to thank for what will undoubtedly be hours upon hours of my life wasted away. I'm sure if there are any geographers out there, this will be just a fantastic find!

Hot news story

Wow. Usually the crime column is the most boring section of the paper. But it doesn't get any hotter than this story, although I would love to be proved wrong!

Gangs of New York

My wife and I watched The Gangs of New York last night. I really enjoyed it and the movie made me wish I lived in a city with some very seedy history. It also made me wish I had a glass eye I could tap with the blade of a knife. Now that would be kick ass.

I have no idea what this will taste like, but I'm in! Two of my favorite drinks combined!

Football thoughts

I think the Jacksonville Jaguars can go ahead and crown themselves the champions of the AFC North since we swept all of them. I think it's only fair... we'll go ahead and take a first round bye and a few home games to go with that. I think the Florida Gators can also go ahead and crown themselves champeens of the SEC and the ACC considering we beat both teams who won those divisions. We'll play in the Orange and Sugar Bowls to go with that.

I do have to take issue with one of the sports writers for CNNSI's page who wrote that "Jacksonville is going to knock a very good team out of the postseason." What the hell exactly does that mean?! Last time I checked Jacksonville had a commanding lead on the first wild-card spot. If you want to look a team that is keeping another good team out of the play-offs try looking at the AFC east. Where the less than steller New England Patriots lead that division with a 6-5 record... SPECTACULAR!

Anyway, I have to admit a certain sense of excitement regarding the possibility of Jacksonville playing in their first postseason in 5 years. It'll suck to be on the road... but come on. It looks like our first play-off game may be at New England. That shouldn't be too much of a test. I mean... they've only won three out of the last four Super Bowls. C'est La Vie!

Let me just grow out my mullet

And hop into this bad boy

Apparently Chevy had decided that it will join the muscle car race and reproduce either the Camaro or the Chevelle. It makes me want to trade in my woefully tiny 2 liter 4 cylinder for something with a little more teeth.

I liked this story better when it was called Homeward Bound. Just kidding... in all sincerity though, I think this story is awesome. If little man...

...were to ever lose his way and find himself across the Atlantic, I would love it if some Frenchman who probably hates the US anyway aided in his return. Seriously... it goes to show you how important people's pets are. I bet whoever it was in France that called the vets owns a pet.
