Five topics from Don Chin

I didn't realize it at the time but yesterday's post was my 200th since I started this blog a couple of years ago. I should have had a party.

Well, Mr. Don Chin, the creator of the original Black Belt Hamsters, suggested not one but five ideas for topics and, because I'm an overachiever, I will henceforth cover all five. Gracias, Don.

Here's what he suggested:

1. The Super Bowl & Super Bowl commercials

First of all, I'm not a huge sports fan. The only thing I follow with a passion is mixed martial arts. Everything else, I pay a general amount of attention to. However, I'm glad the Giants won. I have no particular dislike for the Patriots but in general, I prefer it when all New England sports teams suck. That's pretty much what I grew up with and that's the way I like it. The Patriots are great, the Red Sox are world series champions, even the Celtics are getting it done this year. For all I know, the Bruins kick ass. It's like living in bizarro world and it freaks me out, man.

2. New Season of American Idol

I don't watch American Idol. My mom does, my brother Kenny does, but it never grabbed me. I'd like to say I'm far too macho for American Idol but I did have a brief love affair with Dancing With The Stars, so that can't be the case.

3. New Season of 'LOST'

Off to a great start. I sort of wish the only two people left on the island were Ben and Locke, and every scene featured those two going at it but c'est la vie.

I'm digging the flash forwards but I do hope all the old mysteries get solved instead of buried under the new mysteries created by the glimpses into the future.

Love this show, it's the only thing I make a point to watch on a regular basis. Excited to see where it goes.

4. 2008 Presidential Election or alternative tickets (Colbert/Iron Man '08)

Hillary. This country desperately needs socialized medicine and it's gotta still eat at her soul the way she got crushed by the health insurance industry fifteen years ago. Plus, you can't ignore the fact that Bill Clinton will be sitting on the sidelines again.

5. Boxers or briefs? (Or in Tom Nguyen's case, speedos)

Briefs make me feel like a young boy getting a hernia check from the school nurse. And everyone knows Tom wears ladies thongs.

Well, New England sports teams may win or lose, but you can ALWAYS count on the UConn Women to rule at Basketball.

Curse you, Rutgers!

You got that straight, Sally!

I wear speedos because you never know when someone is going to challenge you to a never hurts to be prepared for that...
