Referee at Boys Soccer Game Beat by Parents

Fan violence at soccer games is not unusual, but at a game for boys under 11 years-old? There was about five minutes left in a game in when the referee reached into his pocket and pulled out the red card. A best player for one team had committed a number of fouls during the match and was finally ordered off the field after he tripped an opposing player. This didn't sit well with some parents sitting in the stands as they stormed the field and began punching the ref. A parent from the opposing team who tried to come to the ref's aid was also punched in the face as he tried to protect the official and call police on his cell phone.

Yeah- call me crazy, but I think this is what you call crossing the line.

The next big thing for Apple...

So the Apple Corporation has been hyping up the technology world with a “big” announcement about their next product…what are they hiding? They just released (as of tonight) a new 2 or 4GB iPod called the "Nano." It sports a color screen and is insanely smaller and thinner than the current iPod-mini’s. Estimated price = $199 or $249 (this sucks for anyone who just bought an iPod-Mini). The biggest shock of them all…no video iPod. Still, these are going to be HUGE, I guarantee this will sell well.

Kanye collaborates with the Beach Boys...

Do you know what a mash-up is? Mash-ups are somewhat of a new concept in the music world. It’s different than a REMIX, in that you take two songs and mix them in their original state together. The combination is usually a popular song you probably heard of- mixed with another artist that you wouldn’t guess would go well together. So with that being said- check out this great mash-up, Kanye West’sCollege Dropout’ and the Beach Boys’ ‘Pet Sounds.’ How does it sound? Awesome. It’s surprisingly has a chill vibe- yet it maintains Kanye’s vibrant lyrical sound.

Some philosophical thoughts on life…

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting weak?

Why doesn't glue stick to the bottle?

Whose idea was it to put an "S" in the word "lisp"?

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes thatsomething new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with theirvacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it downto give the vacuum one more chance?

When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with ashopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, "It's allright?" Well, it isn't all right so why don't we say, "That hurt, you stupid idiot!?!"

The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons issuffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three bestfriends, if they're okay, then it's you.

The clearest water I've ever seen...

Stop. Hammertime!

The New Porsche Panamera...

There is a new car coming- the Porsche Panamera. The car is still a mystery but rumored to be a combination of a coupe and sedan. Some say it will be available in 2008, others say 2009. Nobody knows...? Anyways, it's a tight car I can't afford. Still an awesome car.

Great commercial...

This is an awesomely funny commercial...and I have a feeling this probably has happened to someone in real life. Hil-arious!
