As cool as biting a head off of a snake is, nobody's death should be celebrated in that manner. Just sayin'.

No but the accomplishment of a long held goal should be. And if that happens to coincide with the death of a man who was technically a mass murderer and a serial killer so be it. He worked for nothing short of the degradation of the concept of human dignity not unlike Hitler. Therefore, his death lost the right to be treated in a dignified manner. The boogeyman of our generation is finally gone.

Sporting KC (née KC Wizards) maintaining their unbeaten streak against the EPL.

Sadly, it was 0-0 draw. Geordies can't handle being in the tandoori known as the epic Heartland Heat Wave of 2011.

Not to nitpick, but tandoori is an adjective. Tandoor is the word for the clay oven.

Sporting KC having a 14-game unbeaten streak in MLS play.

Wish more of those were wins, but hey: a point's a point.

Note: I found this to express my feelings about MLP, not the other way around.
Note: On second thought, this should be moved to "things that suck"

1. I finally moved all of my domains and web hosting stuff away from Go Daddy.

2. Somehow snagging a 4 disc box set that has been intermittently unavailable or otherwise priced anywhere from $45-$90 on Amazon for $23.80... it couldn't have been that price more than a day; guess I checked my wish list at just the right time. :D
