Hurling Night in Canada??

You know its funny how thinks work.

For the last couple weeks i've been mulling over what the heck i am going to go cover, when the Asian Ice Hockey League comes to an end. Now in the 2 past summers, i've done updates on the Mexican Leagues of Baseball, but i decided that i didnt want to do that anymore because a) my tendency to butcher spanish names and b) NO ONE LIKES BASEBALL. Never got people excited as Asian Hockey. So if Mexican Baseball is out, what is in? No clue. No idea as to what we're gonna do, but we wanna cover some wacky sport.

And then, the Phone rings.....

Specifically, at the CJSR, just this past tuesday. I listener phones and, and suggests, COMPLETELY OUT OF THE BLUE, that i cover 'Hurling', which he describes as Irelands Greatest Sport. HURLING!! So i take a look and it looks like its a cross between Hockey, Soccer and Rugby. You know what? I think this Listener is a Genius...

So i am going to research this Hurling,and hopefully they have a quasi proffesional league we can report on! I mean its Irish, its violent so this may be the perfect fit! Oh and if you were that guy who phoned in on tuesday, POST A COMMENT on the blog and give me all the information on this sport you can muster!

You, dear listeners, are awesome!

Well apparently i made a gross miscalculation about Cottage Cheese. Not only was i wrong, i was super wrong! "Weapons of Mass Destruction" Wrong. So i concede victory to all of you who like Cottage Cheese. I bow to your protein and calcium rich wisdom.

As a token of my appreciation to for everyone who texted, phoned, commented and voted, Here are some of your Favorite Cottage Cheese Recipies:

A Texter said Its good with Fruit. And Salsa?!
Adam Texted in and recommends it with Taboulee
Cottage Cheese with Seasoning Salt
Kamelle likes Cottage Cheese with Peaches
Cindy suggested two cheesy ideas: With Tomatoe, and Mandarin Oranges
Quinn puts cinnamon on her Cottage Cheese.
Jason adds green onions and pepper to his Cottage Cheese.
And finally, someone actually said they eat Cottage cheese and Jam. Blugh.

I will never question our listener's food loyalties again...until sweeps week.

Its called a " Bat'leth"!!! GOSH!!

You ever have those days when you are flipping around the Internet, you know, pretending to work, and you stumble up on a story that makes you a) laugh out loud and b) think to yourself ' i TOTALLY need to post this on the Show Website'? Yeah? ME too! Happened to me yesterday, when i read a story at CBC.ca about the guy who robbed not one, but TWO convenience stores with a 'Klingon Battle Sword'. Gad i love this planet!!

Oh and CBC? Its called a Bat'leth. Get some culture!



Feb 3 2009 - Cottage Cheese Battle!

Today we had a debate as to whether or not people actually like cottage cheese. I figure people either like it or absolutely hate it like nothing else on Earth. Colin, for example, finds the dairy delicacy nothing short of vomit inducing. So of course we went straight to the polls to find out what you, the listener, think. After a serious review of the data and a margin of error of 0.025%, I have deduced that exactly 76.9% of all human beings enjoy cottage cheese and I will be adding my findings to the cottage cheese wikipedia entry.

Thanks to everyone who phoned and texted in!

Also, we announced our Asian Ice Hockey Playoff Contest today, but I'll let Colin give you the sexy details.
