Let me start by saying that it has been years since I watched this show. Some people told me about Russell and I caught part of his first season and decided since I thought he was shafted I would watch the Villains Vs Heroes show.
Now that I have see this last season of "Outwit, Outlast, OutPlay" I can honestly say I will not watch again. The person who won didn't do much of any of the above. The person who came in 3rd did all of that along with the person who came in 2nd and neither win the big prize. It was a close game for Parvarti and Russell for me, but I thought Russell played the game better. Some of his moves thorughout the game were down right crazy, but they WORKED. Isn't this supposed to be what it's all about. Meanwhile Sandra won no challenges, even gave up in most of them and she comes out on top since she 'played' the game the best. Huh? What did you smoke people? Are you nuts? Plus the fact that she is a bitch, and proved it on national TV last night. Argoance is one thing, being a bitch and flaunting it is another, I half expected her to start waving her finger in front of peoples faces... What a joke.
This show has become a popularity contest amongst the players, I am not saying that is bad, but it's not what I watch it for. I love the back stabbing (and just so you know the Heroes did that too, yes you Rufus or Rupert or what ever your name is) IT'S part of the game. If you don't do it you go home in the first weeks. So to say that Russell is evil and a back stabber I would say Hell Yes and I would vote for him. I really think they need to do something about this, or their ratings will continue to fall as they are.
I think Russell was vindicated a bit by winning the 100K fan vote, but as I said he should have won. Too many people mad at him since he got rid of them... Boston Rob, douch bag supreme, saying he would "Kick your ass all over the place" well uhmm, didn't you just try that and it didn't work? Talk is cheap my friend.
And what was up with Colby? He sucked, but managed to stay out of the line of fire, he had no way to win it unless he won immunity, which we knew he wouldn't, but it was a great play up until then.. What was the deal with his comment last night about quarantine? Are they really keeping them penned up as much as he said they were? That ruins the game even more?
Also how come they were really never 'starving' like in the old days? It's like, oh well I guess we will have 10 bananas and 5 coconuts today... I guess we will live? I am no way saying it's easy, but I can remember the shows in the past, long ago, where people looked like they lost 30% of their body fat, now thats the Survivor we know and love.
Please bring it back to the way it was, not the way it is, your loosing audience and will continue to until things change. Maybe after 20 seasons, it's just time for it to go... Who knows, only time will tell...

So I picked up this new toy today while at Best Buy. I got a Kodak Zi8 and plan to use it to start posting video blogs. Among other things.... I think this camera has it's place, and I am sure I will find it.. It probably does somethings well, and other things not so well... It is charging right now, so I will let you know later... Look for my review of this weekends race via a video blog...
Also went to Supercross this weekend in Houston, pure fun. Walked around the pits and saw some of the riders, and lots of 'chicks'. Seems the 'sex sells' is very much alive in the Supercross arena. I was shocked since there were lots of kids around as this is also very much a family sport, but I guess there are enough of the 18+ year old d00ds that like that stuff... I surely wasn't going to complain... ...
Ok back to work....Video later...

Ok first off let me say I am a big, ok Huge Jeff Gordon fan.
I was very happy for Jeff's finish but a bit teed off at MK, as you might guess. Yes Matt wanted to win as well, but he was never up there contending for the win all day and to think he would 'bump and run' the master to get the win was a bit pretentious. He should have stayed in line and come in 2nd or 3rd, instead he finished 18th I think. I mean come on did he actually think Jeff wouldn't come back and 'bump and run' him back? When he knew his car was not as fast as Jeff's?
As for Denny, congrats my friend, although you did 'PUSH' your way to the front, and I think you got a lucky break from your teammate. Joey could have very easily NOT gotten out of the gas and spun Denny, but thats not what teammates do I guess. Over all a great race, it was a bit hard to watch since I had to work, but I did steal some time here or there to get some watching in..
It was a great race overall, at least what I saw.
So it's hard to comment on any drivers, etc..
Formula1 is back on, and while I didn't get to see the the race down under, I did see that Jenson Button is back to his winning ways in the McLaren, can't be too much fun for his teammate though, the great Lewis Hamilton, but he is last years champion. Ferrari did well, as Alanso and Massa are atop the standings! Way to go Ferrari. Now that the season has started back up I need to get back into F1, I always liked the cars, and the drivers...
Ok back to work, wanted to drop a quick blog about the delayed Nascar race...
Chow for now..

I was waiting to post until Nascar released their decision on Carl Edwards. Well a couple hours ago they did and I have to admit I think they missed the mark. Carl should have been suspended for at least one race, hell he purposely wrecked Brad and admitted as much. He is on probation for 3 races, this is a slap on the wrist to the new BAD BOY of Nascar! It doesn't affect him at all.
Of course I can understand, with the amount of money sponsors pour into this sport I would bet that they had a say in this as well. Can you imagine his car parked in two weeks at Bristol? What would "The Duck" say about that. Nascar was and is in a tough spot, they told everyone that they could police themselves. Then this happened, but on the same token I bet they have had move viewers due to this new policy. A car going on it's roof and smacking the safer barrier is not what they envisioned of course, but ratings will be up. All the sports shows have there new clip to promote, etc..
So what is next? What will BK say about all of this, he was and is in the middle of this as he was kind of pushing his way to the front over the last year. In the big cars and nationwide, and got a lot of guys upset at him. It will be interesting to see what happens in Bristol in a couple weeks.
One side note, people have said BK deserved this due to what he did to Carl at Talladega last year, as far as I am concerned BK didn't cause that wreck. Carl came down on BK 'expecting' him to move over or go below the yellow line, which of course he didn't. I applaud him for that, and it turns out he won the race. More power to him. This year is definitely starting out interesting for sure..
Keep your eyes peeled, as I am sure there will be TONS of fire works at Bristol...
Until next time...

Well the Las Vegas race is over and I am a bit sad. You see my favorite driver is Jeff Gordon and he dominated the race. Well at least 97% of it. The decision to put 2 tires on at the last stop with 34 or so laps to go was just the wrong decision. I know it's hard being a crew chief, but that was just wrong. Jeff was being NICE during his interview, even if a 'couple' more cars took 2 tires I don't think he would have been OK. I think he knows that too. What can you do though, it's the past, and now we move on to one of the fastest if not the fastest race tracks on the circuit Atlanta Motor Speedway. This place is slick and fast, the pavement is worn in a bit and there is 2-3 lines to run on. I can't wait for this weekend!!!!
So I went out this past weekend to my buddies 10 year old sons birthday party. They had it at the farm (30 mins from my house) and had a war games type theme. A guy setup a course, and the kids got slingshots, mini Nerf balls (about 1/2 size of golf ball), and masks. It was then game on. It was funny to watch them run around shooting each other. The game was capture the flag, and if you got the other teams flag you had to take it back to your base, the challenge was you had to go through the tunnel in the middle of the field on the way back to your base. This made for some pretty funny moments, as one boy would be crawling through and the others sitting at the other end waiting to shoot him. Great fun had by all. I was tired just watching them..
I did bring the bike (CRF450X) and got to take a couple spins around on it, but since we had the cows sectioned off I really couldn't get much going on it, but it was nice to get it back out in some dirt...
It's raining today, or was, this sux.
