Drinking & Driving & Littering

My wife and I went out this morning to pick up garbage off the highway as part of the Adopt-A-Highway program. Aside from the numerous Timmy Ho's coffee cups that littered the highway, you would be amazed at how many beer bottles, beer cans, and other assorted alcoholic bottles we picked up along the shoulder of the highway. And we only did ~2km stretch of the highway. There are no houses anywhere in sight, so the only place that these could come from would be passing cars.

Of course, maybe not everyone who drank them was driving at the time -- they could have been a passenger -- but even if 1/10th of them were consumed by the drivers, that's pretty scary stuff.

Senators 6 - Penguins 3


What an incredible game! I've been to quite a few games over the years, including some playoff games, and the crowd at tonight's game had to be the loudest I've ever heard. It was amazing.

One thing that did bother me is the number of people who left before the game was over. During the last 10 minutes or so of the game, at every whistle, more people would leave. Yeh, the game was pretty much a done deal, but WTF? People are so worried that they're going to be stuck in traffic.

STAY UNTIL THE END!

My throat is sore now from yelling and cheering so much. I've nearly lost my voice.

Metallica

This swedish couple really needs their heads checked. They are fighting for the right to name their daughter, Metallica. For the sake of your daughter, give up the fight.

Sports players

Someone who plays Hockey is a "Hockey player". Someone who plays Football is a "Football player". Basketball players play Basketball. Baseball players play... what else... Baseball.

Why is a Golfer not called a Golf player?
