Being an Olympics junkie…I found this little tidbit on MSNBC about one of the US skier’s dogs:
Rahlves drives ‘Chevy’ all over Turin
U.S. ski star even has all-access pass for Siberian husky, courtesy USOC
I never thought I’d see a lanyard look so cool!
So we, or really, I, thought it would be “cute” to get a Valentine’s Day picture of the entire Hennig Zoo. Especially with the gang wearing their festive gear. Just set up the camera with a 10 second delay, point and click, run to chair and grab hissing gray cat, run over to couch with wriggling, growling gray cat (who also has a full set of finely sharpened claws), keep oversized cat perched on the ottoman, make the dog sit up and not lay down, and then get the critters to look up and ahead at a blank wall…no problem.
Take 1…Relax Matt, It’s Fun!
Take 2…The Flying Biscuit Prop
Take 3…Well, At Least the Bipeds Look Nice
Take 4…Here Comes Another Milkbone
Take 5…Animals 5, Humans 0
Well, in theory it was a good idea, but much harder to execute even with handfuls of Pounce treats and Milkbones.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I don’t look at this as Superbowl XL as much as a Superbowl XX 20th Anniversary Celebration.
Seahawks, Steelers…so what! It’s all about DA BEARS…I’m not talking Grossman and Muhammed and Urlacher, it’s McMahon, Wilson and Dent (and Singletary and Gault and Butthead and Mongo and hell, even Gary Fencik). The best NFL team EVAH!
In January 1986 (back when they used to play the Superbowl in late January) as a 5th grader in downstate Illinois I had the entire ’85 Bears roster memorized along with the words to the Superbowl Shuffle. We made posters for the Superbowl party drawn in crayon and we watched the celebration ticker tape parade in Chicago a few days later on WGN. Ah, good times.

So I raise my beer in honor of the 1986 Superbowl Champions, from a certain city dat starts wit’ a ‘C’, ends in an ‘O’ and has a ‘HICAG’ in da middle. Bear down!
