Halloween Sports and such.
Wednesday, October 31, 2007

With it being Halloween I remember a game that the Chicago Bears played against the Green Bay Packers @ Soldiers field with it rain really bad and lighting too. It was a game that really put a explanation point on the day. There was fans dressed up and the players were playing like a pack of wolves on Defense. What also made it special is there was a full moon.


Is there anyone good sports moments that have happened on Halloween that any of you out there can remember? I would love to here them?

Old Quarterbacks need to Retire.
Tuesday, October 30, 2007

As I read the news looking for something good to read, I come across that Former First Round pick Jeff George, wants to return to the Minnesota Vikings. He is 39 years old and has not thrown a pass in the NFL since 2001. My question is why does the NFL keep giving chances to players that are way passed there Prime? George has played for many different teams and he cannot get along with team mates, Why do they keep bringing him in for a chance. I really home that someone breaks his leg, cause he is washed up. So to all of you out there, what football players do you feel just need to retire?

May the force be with you!

I would Like to introduce the new manager of the New York Yankees....
Joe Girardi has accepted the job as the manger of the New York Yankees. Girardi was offered the job over to great guys. Don Mattingly was a lot of the fans choices, Tony Pena is a great player motivator that can get a lot out of his players. The Yankees decided to pick experience over popularity. Girardi in my opinion is the better choice. Mattingly was an all around good player, but what experience does he have? Sure he has been with the Yankee the last couple of years as hitting instructor and bench coach. Girardi took the youngest team with the lowest payroll in baseball to an above 500 record and almost got them in the playoffs.

My feeling is Joe Girardi, knows the game well. He was a catcher so he will be able to judge his pitchers and when they are needed to be pulled. This also may help the Yankees bring back player such as Marino Rivera and Jorge Posada.

I will say it now Joe Girardi is going to win Manger of the Year next year and the Yankees are going to close down Yankee Stadium with another World Series Ring.

World Series Outlook.
Wednesday, October 24, 2007
Since I was way off in the teams I felt would make it and win the world series I am going to release another guess on who I feel is going to win. Boston is a team that came back to win there series and Colorado cruised through theres. So It is a wild card versus a division winner. Boston has great pitching staff and Colorado comes out of no where to make it to the world series. So I think this is going to be a series for the ages. I feel that Boston is going to be a tough team to beat. So that said I am going with the Under dog. Colorado Rockies 4 games to 2.

May the Force be with you.

Who is your choice for Manger of the Yankees?
Yankees Fans we will have a new manager in about 2 days I am thinking. But, the question I have is who will it be? I have a couple of people in Mind.

Joe Girardi- He was there catcher from 96 to 2000 so he knows what it is like in the Bronx. As he was manager of the year in 2006 with the Florida Marlins.

Don Mattingly- He bleeds Yankee blue. Was the first base for them until 1995. Never has won a world series. He has been the bench coach for 4 years and is George Steinbrenner's Choice for Mangers. ( That being said what the boss Say's goes.)

Lou Piniella- He also bleeds Yankee Blue. This is a Long Shot, since he is managing the Chicago Cubs. But don't count him out.

I have given you my choices any one else have an opinion let me know who your choice is?

Inside the NFL
Tuesday, October 23, 2007
The NFL Season is now 7 weeks old so it is time to look at the teams that do not have very good records and decide if they are going to keep there coach's or fire them and which will keep t here jobs.

Coaches on the Hot Seat:

ST Louis Rams: Record 0-7 the rams were supposed to compete for the division this year. THe only thing they will be completing for is who is going to lose the most games.
Coach: Scott Linehan, I do not think he will make it much farther with the losing record.

Miami Dolphins: Record 0-7 the dolphins are a team that is still trying to find there Identiy. They have a depleated back field. A young qb and and Old Defense.
Coach: Cam Cameron should be fired for such a sorry performance.

On the Bubble:

New York Jets: Record 1-6 the jets were supposed to be a playoff team again this year. They were just missing a running back. No body in new york can produce.
Coach: Eric Mangini will be allowed to stick at least one more year to turn it around.

Philadelphia Eagles: Record 2-4 A team that almost everybody said that they could have the tools to go to the superbowl. They have lost some close games that they really should of won.
Coach: Andy Reid with the off field trouble of his sons I feel that he has one foot out the door.

So there are the four teams I feel will be making a coaching change? Is there an others that you can think of? Or do you think I am crazy for saying these are the 4 on the hot seat.

College Aid Loans: Is there any Freedom from them.
When I was coming out of High School I was told College was supposed to be the best years of your life? I was always told that going to school will help you get a better job. I was never told that it could be really really expensive. I thought I would graduate high school and go to a big school, never worrying how much it would cost and live the college life. I figured that I would be able to get a lot of Grants and would of liked to try to get a scholarship. Was I wrong, I did get some grants but when I started I was not really sure what field I wanted to go into. I started down the path of education. Some of the classes were easy, but some of the material I was not understanding. Also, Coming from a small high school I was over whelmed. I didn't know anybody so I lost my drive to go to class. I ended up sleeping through classes and dropping class to take fun thinks. Finally it caught up to me.

Well if you miss to many classes they give on NO financial Aid. What I was not told was you have to attend a certain number of classes to get the help. The only thing that I knew was that I ad to have a certain GPA to keep it. Another thing they do not tell you is that if you drop a class it is counted against you also. So, being on Financial Aid Termination I was unable to play from my classes.

I had to take out a college aid loan through the bank to pay for classes. I was told that this money can be used to pay for books and supplies, They also do not tell you that you have to pay the interest every year. I used this money to go back and take the fun classes again, which did not help me get to the correct career path. It left me in big debt.

So I final make a decision to go to a littler smaller school, that was more expensive. Once again I used all the money I could from my first loan and grants and seemed to be enough for one semester. So once again I had to take out loans, this time they are federal loans, so you only get a certain amount. Plus, you get the extra cash if you have a bill that is all paid up. That is not told to you. So once again, finally have a college degree, but bigger loans to pay off. Also, one of them has interest building up on it that they do not tell you about.

Did you know that 8% of graduating seniors carried student loans of $40,000 or more in 2004, according the Project of Student debt. That is really scary that people are starting there career already in debt. So if you are starting a family you already have debt for the loan, plus you have a house payment or rent, and bills and if you plan to have kids there expensive also.

So the question I have is what do you do? Do you not go to school? Is there an easier way to pay them back?

May the Force be with you.

Torre Turn's Down Yankee's !
After making the playoff for the past 12 season and going 4 and 2 in the world series, New Yankees Manager has turned down a deal that would make him the coach next season. He turned down a 5 million dollar deal that was 2.5 million less than his old deal, plus he was not guaranteed the 2009 season unless the team made the world series. To me this is bad. Joe Torre is everything the Yankees every want in a manger. He is calm Cool and collective. He has the New York/Gangster mystique. I would like to thank Joe for being able to see him manage the greatest team in baseball and let him know that he will be missed.





So where does this leave the Yankees? Who would you like to see them get to replace Torre?Also do they start the rebuilding process?

Words that you Cannot Take back!!
Has there ever been a time in your life were you had an argument with a friend or a family member, not knowing that this would be the last time you talk to them? Could you imagine the families that this happen to on September 11, 2001. The grief that the families are still going through. Some families are not able to function correctly, Some have been able to but they would never be the same.


In the movie "Reign Over Me" Adam Sandler plays a character that goes into deep depression after losing his family, who were on one of the planes that hit the World Trade Center. He run into his room mate from college who start helping get out of this depression. To me this moving was really moving. I could never imagine my life without my family. I don't want to give the whole movie away but depression is curable inf you let it be.

So How do you handle depression? Is there a way to over come the death of someone that you were mad at and they passed away?

The "FORCE"
Thursday, October 18, 2007

In a few of my earlier post I have used the words from Star Wars "may the force be with you." Plus if you go to a couple of places, such as mybloglog.com, blogcatalog.com, you see that I use Yoda. When I started I wanted all of my blogs to have a catchy phrase, that was something that no body else was using so I decide that would be it. The last 10 to 15 posts I have not used it, but did anybody notice it? I am really not sure.


So today I decided to do a little research to see what the Force is. According to wikipedia it is explained in Star Wars episode 4 by Obi_Wan Kenobi as "an energy field created by all living things" that "surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together." In Start wars episode !: the Phantom Meance, Qui-Gon Jinn uses the term "living Force", which is a "high count of Microorganisms called Midi-chlorine's. The more Midi-chorians the greater the person's Force ability.


So in Closing I was wondering if anyone really thinks the force is real? Can someone be one with the force? Should I keep using the Statement "May the Force be with you"?

NCAA: Top 3 Diaper Dandies to watch in 2007-2008
Stealing a quote from the great Dick Vital I have come up with a list of the players that will be the top 5 freshman of the year

1. Eric Gordon: Stiffs U of I to play in front of his home team Hoosiers. If he lives up to the hype, he could very will be a number 1 draft pick.

2. Derrick Rose: this kid is amazing. He can do it all. Playing under coach Calipri at Memphis he will learn alot.

3. OJ Mayo: he goes across the country to USC, for a coach I feel is a thief him self an will no anything to with. By of the 3 he was the highest rated player coming out of High School.

Add other names of freshmen players that you fell will make an impact?

NFL: Player Review. Chicago Bear Devin Hester!!!!!

"Devin Hester returned a punt 106 yards, caught a 99-yard touchdown pass, kicked three field goals after Robbie Gould went down with a hamstring pull, and drove the team bus to the airport after the game when the driver fell ill after being bitten by a rabid Philadelphia dog, leading the Bears to a 23-20 victory over the Eagles."


This is a quote is from a writer that is picking the bears to beat philly this weekend. I would have to agree with him. Devin Hester can do it all. He has returned a kickoff or a punt for a towndown 8 times in his two year career. He was drafted out of Miami by the Chicago Bears in 2006. He a Pro bowler in his rookie season as a kick returner.


This Season he is playing on the offensive side of the ball as a Wide Receiver. He could also line up at QB,RB and even Tight end. He is the first player in Madden history to have a speed of 100. He also wears a magically number 23 in Chicago.


Could he take the bears to the next level with all his talent? Is he the next coming of Prime Time Deion Sanders? What punt returner/kick off returner would you rate that is better than him?

NBA: Chat on the Rookies.
Wednesday, October 17, 2007



Greg Oden goes down even before Practice start with a Season ending knee injury. Has Portland felt the wrath again. They pass on Kevin Durant, like the passed on Michael Jordan in 1983, for what they thought was the best player that would help them now instead of, who I felt would of been the bigger help down the rode in Durant. Seattle got a player in Kevin Durant that is absolutely amazing. Durant in my mind will be the next player that everyone compares to one of the legends.




Other rookie I will be following is the Chicago Bulls First Round Pick Joakim Noah. In my mind he was a over rated player on a great team. He did nothing to impress me. The only thing that stuck out was his wild hair. That is just my opinion though. He could be a great player with the bulls. I really feel the bulls are a player or 2 and a coaching change from winning another Championship.




What does everybody else think about the rookies? Who is the rookie player you are looking forward to watch playing? What team is the team to watch out for?

MLB: Wow was I wrong.
Tuesday, October 16, 2007
When I made my playoff predication a couple of weeks ago I really felt the cubs and Yankees were the team to beat. Boy was I wrong. I feel that since the Colorado Rockies are the hottest team in baseball. Any team that has won 20 of there last 21 games is a hot team. They have tied for the best record after 2 rounds with going 7 and 0. The question I have is how do they over come the 8 day lay off? I think they will they were not picked to win everything and they are close to winning it all. What ever American league team they play, I think they can beat them. So I am going to restate my claim. Rockies over Indians in 6. Man my brother is going to kill me LOL.

Pittsburgh Steeler Withdraw
Monday, October 15, 2007


Week 6 in the NFL was the Steelers Bye week. I went nuts not seeing anything on the TV about the great Pittsburgh Steelers. I could of watched Superbowl 40 game again. I know that they need a bye week to rest the injured players. I think after watching them play Coach Tomlin was the right choice as coach. He fit the mold of the former Steeler Coaches. They play great on defense and the offense is starting to come around. What did you Steeler Fans out there do since they were not on TV? What is your thoughts and feelings of Coach Tomlin already? Do you think Ben has recovered fully from Last Season?

Here we Go Steelers. He we go!
After watching the Dallas Cowboys make Tom Brady and the New England Patriots make mistakes and turn the ball over yesterday. I have come to the Conclusion that it is going to take a great Defense to beat them. What I mean is if the defense can get to Tom Brady then the wheels will fall off. Yesterday the way Dallas scored was by the defense making plays. One other thing that I noticed that if you keep there offense off the field long enough you can wear down there Defense. Everybody is saying they are going to go undefeated and win the Superbowl. I am one that even said they are going to win the Superbowl. But, I do not think they will go undefeated. The Team that will beat them will be the Pittsburgh Steelers on December 9th.

I feel that the Steelers have all the tools to beat them. They have the BEST Defense in the league. They are able to Run the ball and use the clock. Plus, they have a QB that is a great leader and he has done it before, by beating them in 2004 when they won 18 games straight.

I know I am crazy thinking this. But I am jumping back on the Bus to go to the Superbowl with the steelers. Ben Roethlisberger is leading the way. So watch out cause here we come. Does anyone out there think it will be someone else that beats the Patriots? Do you think they will go undefeated? Also, do think Brady breaks Peyton Manning's Record of 49 TD Passes?

NFL Week 6
Friday, October 12, 2007
Wow can anybody believe that the NFL is already 5 weeks old. This season has gone really fast. There have been some sure suprises this season. One would be the Eagles getting off to a bad start. Also the Chargers not playing like a team that finished 14 and 2 last season. Surprise winning teams would be the Pittsburgh Steelers starting off 4 and 1. and the Green Bay Packers, I felt they were going to have good years but wow. There division rivals are not playing very good football either. Lastly How bout them Cowboys. They get a true test this week, Tony Romo over comes 5 int's to lead his team to victory. Amazing, how many QB's can you say did that?

Now on to the week at hand. I am doing really bad. I went 3 wins and 2 loses bringing my total overall to 12 wins and 13 loses. I will get back up there and be over 500 before the end of the year. MVP for this week is Pittsburgh Steelser Najeh Davenport, he had 7 carries for 58 yards. Also he came up with the Heinz Field Hop.

Week 6 picks

Bears over Vikings
Redskins over Packers
Patriots over Cowboys
Jets over Eagles

Upset of the week
Rams over the Ravens

NCAA: Midnight Madness!!!
The NCAA Basketball Practices start tonight and I was wondering who is the team and the player you are looking foward to see play? Also which team that had a big offseason in recruiting? Which Teams do you think will be overrated. Since the NBA has made the rules that the players have to play one year of college, alot of players are going to do the one and done thing. My feeling is why go to school for one year and then go pro and then get hurt? what do you have to fall back on when the money is gone. Nothing is what they have. They then turn to drugs and crime. That is not good. So I feel they should do what the NFL does and make the players wait until they are 3 years after there high school graduation day to go pro. I am really looking foward to watching College Basketball. I have become a really big fan of the Bradley Braves so I am ready to see how they do. Let me know what your thoughts are?

NBA: Would you Trade for Kobe Bryant?
Thursday, October 11, 2007
"I would certainly listen [to trade offers for Kobe]. At any time, I think you have to do that with anybody. It's just part of the game ... You can't keep too many loyalties. You've got to look at it as a business. He looks at it the same way I look at it."

-- Lakers owner Jerry Buss

After reading this quote I think that it is really interesting that owner Jerry Bus
would consider trading his top player. I think he is absolutely crazy. Kobe is considered one of the greatest players of all time, and they would consider trading him. When the Lakers had Magic Johnson was there any talk of trading him? I think not. I am not a big Kobe Fan, but I think that the Lakers have a good young team to work with and need Kobe if they ever want to win another Championship in the next 10 years. I understand that it is business, but what if Jerry Krause would of said that he would listen to trades for Micheal Jordan? I would think the whole league would of put out a proposal to get MJ.

What kind of deal has Jerry Buss listen too? What would you accept as a good offer for a player of Kobe's Caliber?

MY Role Model: Michael Jordan.
Tuesday, October 9, 2007

Role Models could be anyone. They could be a teacher,doctor, lawyer,actor,parent,aunt,uncle,grandparent or athlete. Mine would have to be the greatest basketball player ever, Michael Jordan. MJ has all the qualities I feel a role model should have. He is a great play and sets goals high. He acts professional in the public eye. Someone you can talk too and if they are a superstar they should not act like they are better than everyone else. Someone that is hard working and strives to achieve goals.


Michael Jordan is the hardest working person I know. I look up to him because he sets goals and achieves them. He is always up for any challenge. He has great family values and dresses and act professional in the public Eye. he worked hard for his money and everything else he has earned.


Michael Jordan was and still is the greatest basketball player of all time. I will look up to him and the way he conducted himself. I feel that if I was about 6'3" I could be like mike. I try to follow his work ethic, by being a great person to my family and setting goals for myself and achieving them. Who is your role Model? Why do you look up to this person? What traits to you value from your Role Model?

Just Lose IT!!!



On June 25, 2007 World Wrestling Entertainment Wrestler, Chris Benoit committed suicide after killing both his wife and child. The Cause of this was not considered to be Roid Rage because there was no GHB found in his system, but his dad felt it was do to all the shots in the head he had taken. Test had revealed that his brain was so severely damaged it resembled the brain of an 85 year old Alzheimer’s pt. It also showed advanced form of Dementia similar to the brains of the four retired NFL players that suffered severe concussions, sank into depression and harmed themselves or others. I do think it may have been from the shots in the head, but why kill your own family. Friend Chris Jericho stated that he felt Benoit was Battling a private battle with a mental illness. WWE is also stating that he had passed a drug test in April of 2007. I bet he figured he would not get another test for a while so it was ok to do this.

Looking back when this first happen I thought it may be a work for a new angle in the WWE. The More I read about it the more I had to realize that this was reality. I thought how someone in the spotlight of people could do something so bad. Then it came out that he was doing massive amounts of steroids, Xanax, Hydrocodone in his system. They also found large amounts of Xanax, Hydrocodone, and hydromorphone, in the system of his wife and son. He also sent weird text message to his friends letting them know that his dogs were outside in the garage area.

I have seen Chris Benoit wrestle a couple of times. He could put on a great act. He wasn’t the biggest or the fastest guy, but he knew how to work the crowd. He could have been known for taking Wrestling to new heights as he was a member of the elite four horseman, and he even held the WWE World title. Lots of kids looked up to him. This kids that fell that wrestling is real are having a hard time understanding what is going on. I could not imagine what to tell my son if he were to be able to follow what was going on.

So did Chris Beniot just lose it or was the head shots the cause of his death? How do you explain the loss to your kids? Do you think Steroids played a factor in this case? Can the WWE be blamed for this also? Please leave your thoughts and feeling on this matter?

Britney Share the Same Fate as Princess DI!

Will Britney Spears die the same way that Princess Di did 10 years ago? I would have to think so because she is constantly mobbed by the Paparazzi and they will not leave her alone. Princess Di was also done the same way. There are people out there that believe that the Princess was killed because the driver of her care was intoxicated and driving at an extremely high speed. I feel that he would not of been driving so fast if the Paparazzi was not chasing them. If she would have been left alone her son's could of groin up with there Mom Present. Instead they have to see the horrific pic's of the crash that are out there and relive every moment again and again. I could not image growing up like Prince William and Harry have without there mother.


Britney has a shrine in her house of Princess DI. She would also like to have a replica of the Wedding dress that DI wore when she married Prince Charles. A lot of her close friends are worried that she is headed down the same path. She is always mobbed by the press, stories about the bad things she has done. But, also she has two little boys that would be without a mother if something happened to her. In the Paparzzi Eye all the time.


So if it were to happen and she was to die in a car crash, would it be the paparazzi fault? Is the person that is driving her around fault? She could also be to blame. Would Elton John write a song for her? What are your thoughts Feelings.

This week MVP is Brett Favre for taking his team to 4 and 0 and getting the touchdown record.

week 5:

Jets over Giants
Titans over Falcons
Cardinals over Rams
Redskin over Lions

Upset of the week:

Shopping in your underwear!
Thursday, October 4, 2007
I am definitely one of those last minute Christmas shoppers! This year, I think I might try something else. I found a Black Friday site that allows you to view all of the after Thanksgiving ads before “Black Friday.” How awesome is that? You can even purchase it all online, no more waiting in hot, muggy stores at 5 a.m. the day after Thanksgiving.

I am definitely going to check out Dick's Sporting Goods I can not wait to see what deals they have. Now you know I love sports, and this store is massive! I could spend hours there! So just by finding out what sales they are having before hand, is just making my day! My wife is also getting excite knowing all the toys she can buy before hand on the other sites they are offering, yikes!

New pair of Nike’s, CHECK, new Steelers Jersey, CHECK, new basketball, CHECK. Oops…. That was my wish list, hehe. But, of course, my wife and daughters (and son) would love what I brought them home from there, hehe!

And if you are like me, and are forgetful, you can sign up for email alerts, and they will alert you when the time is coming. So I am definitely going to give this site a shot. After all, who wants to wake up early in the morning and fight the crowds? I think I would rather sit back, sip my coffee, read the sports section and surf the Black Friday site for the latest deals!

The Winner of the contest would of gotten one thousand dollars. This was posted on there web site and the host of the DJ Big Boy Show announced on the radio Tuesday night. The Radio Station has pulled there add off of there web site,cancelled the contest and have sent out an apology.This is something that goes against the First Amendment. They did no harm. It is not like they went out and said they were going to kill her. I think that if this gets people to listen to there show it is great sale. What if this does really happen? If you were given the chance to enter the contest how would you of predicted it? Is this Sick that someone actually put it out there as a joke?Also, where do people cross the line from Jokes to Reality?

To all the Yankee Haters!!
This goes out to all the people out there that Hate the Yankees. I have heard people call them the evil empire. The Store bought championship team. Also heard them called the billionaire club. I do not see how you can hate a team that likes players that win! I have been a Yankee fan for a long time and they have not won anything since getting these high paid players, the titles they won were from players that were from there minor league system. The team is not winning games by paying the players what they pay them, they have won the titles because they are a well managed team. Joe Torre has been the main reason. Also, they have a team leader in Derek Jeter that wears the Yankee uniform with pride. He is to the Yankees the same as Michael Jordan was to the Chicago Bulls. I know that Torre Manged other teams and couldn't win, but he did not have the bench coaches and the players that worked well together. It is a team game people. The reason they got hot at the end of the year is not ONE Player. IT is cause the all came together and started playing good. So the question I ask is why do you hate the Yankees so much? What would you say if the Kansas City Royals did the same? If you are not a Yankee hater what do you love about the team?

MLB Playoff/World Series Predictions
Tuesday, October 2, 2007
ALDS Series ONE: Los Angeles Angels vs. Boston Red Sox. (3-2 Boston Wins.)
Boston was the winner in the AL East and had a dog fight holding on to the lead in the finally games of the season.Los Angeles played really well all year and they have a great manager that know how to win. I think this is going to be a good series with Boston pulling it out narrowly.
ALDS Series Two: New York Yankees vs. Cleveland Indians. (3-1 New York Wins)
My brother is going to kill me on this one. Cleveland was won the division 2 weeks ago and it is hard to get the motor going again. I think Cleveland will take the first game at the Mistake by the lake, but the Yankees have more experience and that is what is going to help them win the series.
ALCS Series: New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox's (4-2 New York Wins)
Yankees Vs Sox again. I know this one is getting old. I Believe this is the best rivalry in baseball. The Red Sox have really played bad down the stretch and the Yankees are playing like a team on a mission.
NLDS Series ONE: Colorado Rockies vs. Philadelphia Phillies (3-2 Colorado Wins)
Two of the hottest teams in baseball meet up in the first round. Colorado has not been to the playoff for 12 years. Philly came back from 7 games down to win the Division. Who has enough gas to win the series. I think Colorado will pull this one out in five, but all the game will be really close.
NLDS Series Two: Chicago Cubs vs. Arizona Diamondbacks (3-0 Chicago Wins)
If the cubs get there bats going and the pitching is really good. This could happen. Arizona has a young ball club. The Cubs of the Curse of the Goat and Steve Bartman. I feel the Cubs are going to sweeps the diamondback.
NLCS Series: Colorado Rockies vs. Chicago Cubs (4-2 Chicago Wins)
In 2003 the Cubs were 5 outs away from the world series. But that was a completely different team. This team has a Great Manager who does not believe in Curses and know how to use his pitching staff.

World Series: Chicago Cubs vs. New York Yankees
I have put the winners next to the prior games, but this is a toss up. Due I go for my Favorite team or do I go for the Lovable Losers?Both teams started out cold and got hot. Both Teams have Great Managers. So what do I do. I am going to have to go with the CUBS. My gut is telling me that it could be another 100 years before they get back. (4-3 CUBS WIN!!) Holy Cow!!

Welcome to the Battle of Corp America!!!!
Monday, October 1, 2007
I have been reading in the news the last couple of days of the battles between Microsoft and Google. Google has been in production of its own Office product in the past year. From what I have read it is better that Microsoft products. Google also has had a better product with there search engine. They have also, created a email system and are working on an instant messaging system that could be better than Microsoft's IM. Microsoft has combined there IM with Yahoo, trying to gain some market control. Microsoft also has taken a page out of google's and started making there office product like a web base program. The have also in the last couple of weeks decided to get into the Internet community business. They have bought out Face book and now are trying to make a run at the famous My Space. My Space started as a small community for the kids in a California town and has grown into a monster. How can anybody compete with them?

Next Up Sony versus Microsoft. I was reading today that Sony may release a PS3 with a 40 gig hard drive for $399 to go into the holiday battle. Microsoft Xbox 360 is doing a package issue. Here we go again Microsoft battling to rule the world. I would much rather have a PS3. The reason is Sony has been doing the gaming systems for a long time. I have owned a Playstation from the beginning and have never had a problem with them. I also feel the game play is better. Plus, the controller is better. I have lots of people telling me no buy and Xbox, but I have heard from a couple of people that there has been lots of problems with it. In the end I have a feeling Blue Ray is going to Win. So There is a couple of examples of Battles that I have seen. What do you think? Any interesting battles that you have come across? What is your program of Choice? What is your video game system of choice and why?
