Lesson learned…when talking about the Cockfighting Ring that led to 17 people in Gold Bar to be arrested, and 59 roosters euthanized…do not deliver that story in a fast pace…if you do, you might forget the word “fighting” while saying Cockfighting Ring and have to be dumped by Toppy.
Hey if you have a second, help out a fellow Rock-A-Holic…we got a text from Kristine asking if we could show some support to her daughter Jaya, who is going to Japan & blogging about it on a website.You could follow her travels at www.jayasjapanjourney.com.I have to say that is impressive…14, travelling to Japan, creating a website about it…dang!At 14 I was still obsessed with trying to figure out how to unscramble certain cable channels unsuccessfully in my bedroom TV.
This morning we were chatting about hockey analyst Barry Melrose, and how bad ass he is…which led to an email from a listener named Ginny, who happens to be the mom of a Tacoma Donkey (my hockey team):
Just a little additional Melrose for you today.......Barry was our guest at one of Johnny's youth hockey fundraising auctions. He got up and told some hockey stories. It was awesome because he was telling things that were completely inappropriate for young kids, but awesomely funny for us adults. He was talking about how after he'd play a game, the guys would all be sitting around having bottles of beer. Him and another guy used to always do this stupid thing where they would all of a sudden ask everyone "Where's my beer?" while having it tucked into their naked butt crack. It was so funny to see how appalled most of the parents were. Of course my table of obnoxious hockey moms were laughing our ass off.
Melrose is the man!I would love to just hang with him and Don Cherry in a bar and hear all of their stories…hell, toss the Hanson Brothers in the mix too!
