I will not watch awards shows for entertainers, that includes NHL Awards. The Oscars were on last night, so this is my yearly rant on them. These celebrities get paid millions of dollars for making movies. They spend a few months, sometimes in a beautiful location, then take a few months to a couple years off. There are a several awards shows, and these people spend a lot of money to get dressed up, rent limos, and get their pictures taken, all in an effort to pat themselves on the back. The most disgusting part of this is the gift bag that they receive. That bag, this year, is worth around $160, 000. There is so much in that bag that they don't even carry them out anymore...they are delivered the next day. There are people in North America, and of course the rest of the world, that struggle to make house payments and pay other bills, while working a full year. Some people don't have homes, and rely on shelters to survive the winter, let alone to get a hot meal once in a while. Millions of dollars are spent on each Oscar night so that entertainers can revel in their own glory. Today, after sleeping off the huge parties where everything is paid for, some of those people will get back to recording public service announcements about how my $30 can save someone on the other side of the world. Those people are irrelevant to me. Their opinions on how to help people do not matter in the slightest. I know that some of them do a lot to help. Some of them will support a foundation that they have founded, but this seems too self serving for me. Celebrities are disgusting people.
SG-1...duh! It looks pretty dated these days, but it's still the best. Atlantis got better once Sam Carter got on board. Everything is better with Amanda Tapping, who incidentally, attended the University of Windsor, and Windsor is very near my old stomping grounds. I think that means the I, at one time, could have met her and had a shot. Seriously, stop judging me!
I despise reading stuff online with poor spelling and grammar. I don't care if it's Facebook, a Youtube comment, or a LetsGoWings post. If you can't take the time to use proper words and punctuation, your opinions and thoughts count very little with me. I can accept the odd spelling error. I can tolerate the person that doesn't understand the difference between a colon and a semi colon. I can even see both sides of the Oxford Comma debate. What I cannot abide is the blatant disregard for an entire set of rules on which an entire language has been based.
I hate to, but I agree with so much here. Yes, I think it's watered down. I'm surprised Bettman hasn't tried to have an outdoor game in Anaheim, that's how much I faith I have in him. There has to be some interest in the matchup, the game itself will not be enough all the time, but of course, there can't always be rivalries.
The one thing I disagree with, to the point of having smoke coming from my ears, is the opening act. Does anyone remember Drake at the All Star Game a few years ago? That sucked so bad that I thought a Black Hole had formed in that arena. I don't even watch ASGs any more because of that. I can't bear to watch any other assholery that could ruin hockey as much as that.
