words cant describe....

This is probably the worst commercial for a wii game ive ever seen. What were they thinking? I guess from what i've read We Dare has you performing the exact same dumb minigames as in countless other Wii titles, except this time it's supposed to be naughty because you, like, put the Wii remote in your pants or something. For a game that looks so stupid, those actors hired to look like they're enjoying the game sure seem to be enjoying it!

Childhood memories ruined part 3

 I grew up with a obsession for the cartoon teenage mutant ninja turtles. They were easily the biggest influence in my young life. I felt like it was unique and original compared to other cartoons. Unfortunately after the turtles went off the air I didn't quite notice that because of their success there were  now more and more tv shows trying to capture the same type chemistry with different crime fighting animals with minimal success. I of course thought they were all amazing but now that I look back I can see that they were all basically the same show! Well here are some clips from four examples so you can make up your own mind. (spoiler: I'm right ;) )

                                                    The theme song doesn't get old! I'd be lying if i said I don't have a turtles tshirt in my closet

                               Probably the worst offender I mean they know karate and love pizza? pretty low                          
man. This is probably the weirdest of theme song especially with the less than exciting announcer...oh japan so weird

                              What I remember about this was that some evil scientist injects soldier with shark dna     or something and they become wise cracking crime fighting sharks. yea it's pretty dumb. 

Oh boy, I remember loving this as a kid but looking back it's pretty much the same formula as the other shows wise cracking ducks who fight crime. oh but they play hockey and their ducks with hair who knew that was possible!!!???

I love titles that pretty much sum up what the shows about. Well this one is about biker mice and they're from mars! Shocking right?? oh and did i mention they are wise crackin!?? Anyway....something I noticed about all these intros is just how much blaring metal is in each intro. No wonder I have a strange love of hard rock and metal music I was brainwashed from childhood.

So i realize this may be the least interesting blog post to some, but i found it oddly funny looking back at these "classic shows". I thought it was worth a blog post though I'm sure some would disagree. Oh well!

Super Bowl Champs

So if you don't like football you may not like this poster (in fact you may find it super boring), but with my favorite team the green bay packers winning the super bowl I thought I'd do a post on them and why I love them so much. I started getting into football during high school and remember watching a game on fox with the packers playing and I was amazed with brett farves arm and the explosive offense. Once I learned the history of the organization i was instantly a fan. the Packers are the only non-profit, community-owned franchise in American professional sports major leagues. Typically, a team is owned by one person, partnership, or corporate entity, i.e., a "team owner." The lack of a dominant owner has been stated as one of the reasons the Green Bay Packers have never been moved from the city of Green Bay, a city of only 102,313 people as of the 2000 census.
Lambeau Field
The Lombardi Trophy named after Vince Lombardi
 Vincent Thomas "Vince" Lombardi led Wisconsin's Green Bay Packers to dominate professional football in the 1960s. He was once a defensive guard at Fordham University, part of the "Seven Blocks of Granite" that gained fame in the 1930s. After he graduated in 1937 Lombardi went to law school, but then shifted gears and became a football coach at St. Cecilia High School in Englewood, New Jersey. He left in 1947 to join the coaching staff at Fordham, and in 1949 he went to coach at West Point. His first job in professional football came in 1954, coaching offense as an assistant for the New York Giants. He helped the Giants to five winning seasons and a league championship (1956), and in 1959 was hired by the Green Bay Packers as both head coach and general manager. An unrelenting workhorse with no patience for tomfoolery, Lombardi re-shaped the Packers and lifted them from a decade-long slump to a winning season in his first year. In the nine seasons he was there the team won five league titles and the first two Super Bowls (1967 and 1968). He left coaching in 1968 and stayed on as general manager, but in 1969 Lombardi took the head coaching job with the Washington Redskins. He led the Redskins to a winning season, but was diagnosed with cancer at the end of the season and died the following September, at the age of 57

Childhood memories ruined part 2: Super mario bros.

I remember watching this tv show at my grandma's house after school when I was 7 years old. None of my friends watched it because they thought it sucked, but as you can see its pretty awesome right? ;) I wonder what happened to the actors who played mario and luigi. I think doing the mario should've been a legit dance move.
