7.28.05 Tidbits

4 Scouts Dead: It was reported that four men were electrocuted in Fort A.P. Hill in Bowling Green, Virginia -- a town between Fredericksburg and Richmond. I care less about that. Boo hoo. 4 hearie men dead. Good riddance. Why? Because the BSA is firmly against gays. Timmy Smith, a 16-years old fella from Wheeling, WVA, commented: "It would feel bad if my dad got affected like that, Scouts are supposed to be kind and help each other out so we helped them out."

Too bad they do not practice what they preach, they only help themselves but reject atheists, gays and women -- but not anyone else outside of its group. The BSA's activites are similar to the Nazi Youth group in Germany during the 1930s, training the fresh boys with lies and all that in order to make them homophobic, xenophobic, conservative and pricks, to say the least. In fact, it was reported that one of the founding fathers used to participate in the Nazi Youth group. But no, the BSA will deny it as usual.

So when four men died, I did not care.

Wow! 6 Years Passed Us By! Last night, I was watching some program on Gallaudet TV Channel -- somehow, it showed Ronda Jo Miller. Emergency! Flashback! Let's jump back to the biggest game in Gallaudet's history -- the second round of the NCAA Tournament. I did not realize that it was six years ago! Frankly, I'm getting old, too fast!

I remembered walking in the Packer Hall, I saw that Gallaudet was trailing by 11, 19-8 against The College of New Jersey, the No. 2 team in the country. When I walked to the Gallaudet section, I watched Ronda Jo Miller becoming possessed as she began to take over -- stealing, rebounding, dribbling, dishing and hitting the baskets as she personally overwhelmed the TCNJ team on a huge 34-15 spree as Gallaudet reclaimed the lead at the half, 43-34.

When Gallaudet hits 43 points in a half, it also destroyed the TCNJ's defense average for the season -- the TCNJ held many teams to the average of 42 points per game. AT this point, Ronda Jo Miller was one-woman show against No. 2 TCNJ in the country -- many fans, Gallaudet and TCNJ alike along with the reporters from DC, NYC and NJ, were treated to once-in-a-lifetime of her best dominant performance of her lifetime. It was like she was in a trance. She was able to do everything at once. She stole the ball from this end of the court and raced against the TCNJ guards across the floor to the other end of the court, and quickly dished to Touria Ouahid who attempted to hit a layup but missed, Ronda Jo rebounded then jumped around to nail the basket. Just like that. Nobody could stop her in this state of her mind.

Suffice to say, Gallaudet upset No. 2 TCNJ 81-71, thus spoiled them from reaching the Final Four as Gallaudet advanced to its first Sweet Sixteen appearance in school's history. Ronda Jo Miller finished with 38 points, 14 rebounds, 5 blocks and 5 steals.

Too bad, Ronda Jo Miller imploded the next game in Williamstown, Massachusetts. But the memory of watching her playing during that particular game is something I'll treasure for a long time.

Discovery In Space: I'm curious -- we were able to manufacture four shuttles -- and now we are down to two -- how come we are not able to manufacture more? Do tell. Or did the Bush Administration cuts the funds once again in the name of terrorism and freedom?

So Hot! Thank God for the air-conditioner. It is like having the hair dryer blow on your face when you ride in someone's car with the windows open. I hate the heat. It reminded me the reason why I preferred the winter season.

Finished With Left Behind Series: What a joke. It's all bullshit. It is too bad that the authors seemed to enjoy making fun of Leon Fortunato. Stupid pricks.

Confidential to Dorian: If you claim that you never read my blog and complain about the contents that was made against you, how did you know about it? Getting word from your imaginary friends do not count, m'dear. Next time, do not complain without reading it first! Then I will listen to your requests to see if it is legitimate or not. But as of now, it is not even blip on my concerns at all. Now scram away!
