Stupid Is As Stupid Does

CINCINNATI (AP)—Maybe receiver Chad Johnson can go by the name that his head coach hates.
Cincinnati Bengals receiver has legally changed his name to Chad Javon Ocho Cinco in Broward County, Fla., a switch that became official this week, according to several media reports. Johnson, who lives in Miami, didn’t return a message left on his cell phone Friday night.
“It’s something I don’t think anyone has ever done before,” he told the team’s Web site. “Have I ever had a reason for why I do what I do? I’m having fun.”
Two years ago, Johnson gave himself the moniker—a reference in Spanish to his No. 85—and put it on the back of his uniform before a game. Quarterback
Carson Palmer ripped it off before the kickoff. After the season, coach Marvin Lewis—who dislikes Johnson’s attention-getting stunts—referred to the receiver as “Ocho Psycho.”
Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said the Bengals had no comment on the matter.
Johnson has been a concern for the Bengals this season. He unsuccessfully lobbied for a trade in the offseason, threatening to sit out if he didn’t get his way. When the Bengals refused, he relented and showed up for minicamp, but complained that his right ankle was bothering him.
He had bone spurs removed from the ankle and was limited at the start of training camp. In the second preseason game, he landed awkwardly and temporarily dislocated his left shoulder. Johnson is wearing a harness and expects to play in the season opener against Baltimore.

By the way if he really wanted to change his name to 85 it should be:

Thank God For DVR

I would normally not get political on here because there two things you don't talk about unless you want to piss people off and that is politics and religion. With that said, I hate this time of the year as far as TV because of all the political ads. Yeah, Yeah I am the last person on the planet that hasn't traded their TV for something more intellectual. I was raised in front of a TV and I love watching it in the evening. Although this time of year you have the pleasure of being bombarded with presidential ads. YUCK! Although I guess they are a necessity though because the majority of people will make their political choice just by watching the same 30 second ad over and over. I hope not but I am sure its true and very sad. What is really sad is that we are a nation of millions of millions people and only get to choose between two??? I am sorry , got on my soapbox... who owns soapboxes?

With all that said I am glad I have digital cable, and I can record my favorite shows and just fast forward threw all of those annoying political ads. Yeah! It does take away from my favorite drinking game though, "Every Ad Take A Drink" Probably good because I am sure my drinking game days have long passed me. Just remember don't be fooled or mislead by what someone on TV is telling you about the upcoming election. They are getting paid to tell you what they want you to hear. Go out and do the research and learn for yourself. Because placing a vote for a president is not a popularity contest its way more important than that.

I am Ken and I approve this message.

Nissan didn't do this for Nicole and I when we picked up our Rouge. It's amazing what another $200k will get you.

Watch Them Jiggle

I hate the fact that I am getting older. All the things I thought would never happen to me seems to be happening. For instance, this morning I was was getting ready for work in the bathroom and looked up in the mirror and noticed the latest curse of old age. Man Boobs. Yes, I have some slight man boobage going on and it is freaking me out. I did what I always do when I freak out, I frantically got on the Internet to see if I could find any help. What I found was the link below:

The Long Road

Today was a very rare day in the Greater Cincinnati Area in August. It was an absolutely beautiful day with temperature's in the mid to upper 70's. No excuses! I loaded up my bike in the the Rouge and headed up to a place I have wanting to get to Miami Whitewater Forrest For two dollars you get full run of the park, for me I was interested in the bike trails. If you are interested in my ride, please check the side bar of my blog under my "My Latest Ride" section.

Like I said, it was so awesome out today while I was riding I was able to really enjoy the nature around me. How fortunate am I to be able to spend my whole afternoon on my bike. I hope I can remember these simple days and hope there will be several more to come.

Btw I went 25 miles today....My longest ride yet!

Turn head and cough.

US cyclists apologize for wearing masks

A group of American cyclists has apologized to Beijing Olympic organizers after arriving in China’s capital wearing face masks.Michael Friedman, Sarah Hammer, Bobby Lea and Jennie Reed released a statement Wednesday, a day after they caused a stir by showing up in the protective gear.“The wearing of protective masks upon our arrival into Beijing was strictly a precautionary measure we as athletes chose to take, and was in no way meant to serve as an environmental or political statement,” the athletes said. “We deeply regret the nature of our choices.

Our decision was not intended to insult BOCOG or countless others who have put forth a tremendous amount of effort to improve the air quality in Beijing.”The host city’s air remains a concern with the start of the games approaching. Beijing has put into effect long-planned pollution-control measures, such as taking cars off the streets, and American officials are cautiously optimistic.Jim Scherr, the U.S. Olympic Committee’s chief executive officer, said his organization didn’t ask the cyclists to apologize.“Those athletes regret that action and have written an apology to BOCOG on their own behalf,” Scherr said. “They now realize and understand how their actions were perceived by the host nation and by the organizing committee.

”Scherr said masks have been issued to national governing bodies that requested them.“I understand that about 200 of our athletes received those masks through the national governing body, not directly from the U.S. Olympic Committee,” Scherr said. “Hopefully they won’t have to use them.”

Save a car, ride a bike!

Something New

I thought I would break away from the norm this month and offer some variety to my blog. Today I wanted to introduce you to some new music. I love new music and I am sorry if this is not to every ones liking but give it shot. Don't worry its not country!

My first recommendation is Summer Watson Summer Watson is what I like to call reflective music. When I say reflective I mean, sitting on the beach with your eyes closed and letting the music heal you from the inside out. She lists her influences as: The Ocean, Sailing, traveling South America, Love, beach days, sunshine, last minute Mexico trips, Costa Rica, waves, red wine, stella artois, family, friends ,singalongs, vocal harmony, good music and so much more.

Another artist from the same southern California area is Chris Cook. Now this artist is also unsigned and in the same circle as Summer Watson. He is particularly special to Nicole and I because "CMLS" or "Counting My Lucky Stars" is what we danced to at our reception. I would say his music is what you want on when you are with some close friends around a fire on the beach.

Can you tell I already miss the Caribbean...ugh!

I am hating this! I just had surgery on my head to remove a cyst and I am just kind of hanging around at home. Just watching TV and chillin'. I feel like I am a kid again and I am grounded for getting in trouble with my little sister. Not to mention I am laid up and imprinting my butt permanently in the couch. I just got a bike, and it is sitting quietly in the garage wondering why it is so lonely. Being grounded sucks.

If you are interested in pictures of my gnarly head just ask and I will email them to you. Anyway have a great weekend!
