Bitch and moan

Where do I start? I guess since NASCAR pre-season testing has begun I guess I'll start with the screwed up race team known as Wood Brothers/JTG Racing. Or maybe they have split up and are back to being just Wood Brothers again. Who knows and who cares, really? My favourite driver is Ken Schrader and he has been treated disgracefully by this shadow of a formerly great race team. Originally the reports would be Ken would run the Bud Shootout and 12-14 races in the historic #21 Ford. He's getting older and his career is winding down so I think most of us would accept that. In the last couple days, Eddie Wood was on Sirius Speedway with Dave Moody and said most of the races would be run with Bill Elliott, Marcos Ambrose and Jon Wood behind the wheel. No mention at all of Schrader. When Moody asked about KS, Wood responded that he may fill in for a race or 2 and that he would test at Daytona with the 49 car.

As far as I am concerned, I hope the Wood Brothers don't make a race this season, unless Ken is behind the wheel and they finish 43rd in any race they do start.

Onto #2 and that would be the Toronto Maple Leafs. What the heck is wrong with this team? I have no answers and it seems they have none either. But I have been watching them since I was 6 years old in the days of Darryl Sittler and Lanny McDonald, through the Imlach returns years, then the Wendel Clark era and now with Mats and the gang.

My nieces and nephew are loving the Nintendo Wii. The 3 year old is actually pretty at golf on the Wii Sports disc, they also got the game based on the movie Open Season.

Oh and for those of you wondering about the weight thing, I am down by 0.4 pounds for a total of 33.4 pounds, which means I have to lose another 5 to match my highest amount of weight lost and then another 17 pounds to make my next goal. Imagine what I'd do if I had an actual exercise routine to follow. Until I am rich and can afford a gym membership I guess the dog will get more walks.
