Ravings of a Mad Man: vol. 4.01

It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid then open it and remove all doubt

-Mark Twain


            What a weekend!  My prediction almost came true.  The Utes won by 3 touchdowns and field goal or three touchdowns and three 2-point conversions.  What a world!  I was going crazy Saturday night as the wife, Danny, Emi, Carter and myself watched with wide eyes as the Utes smoked the Cougars.  That was just the first awesome thing on TV this past weekend.  With Jack Bauer back on the streets he was able to return to prime time TV and begin another sleepless day.  I think that the last season of 24 ever should just be Jack Bauer sleeping for 24 hours straight.  I think that I would watch that too because what if he had crazy dreams.  We wouldn't be able to see them because they are in his head but just think about the rapid eye movement.  That would be riveting television.  People would tune in because maybe his eyes would start to move so fast that the bad guys get scared and give up.  Or maybe his eyes are moving so fast that he defuses a bomb with his eyes.  The possibilities are endless.  Not only would Jack Bauer save the world but also Sutherland would win a lot of awards for his portrayal of man asleep.  This season might be a lot like him asleep because I heard that there are 3 hours of the show where he is just at hearings answer question about the past seasons of 24.  Then the panel just keeps saying, "Really, you did all that in just 24 hours?"  Then Jack says, "Yes."  Forget about Jazz basketball that is a Pure Adrenaline Rush.                           

Trivia Time:  Well there was only one person who dared answer the question and they were way off.  So Steve not only did BYU not win they gave up, or so it looked like.  This week's question is in the Disney movie Aladdin what is Jasmine's Tiger called?


Beat the Odds Tip:  If you want to be winner then cheer for the Utes!


So the Jazz are off to the weirdest start since the year that Karl Malone made a country western movie in the off-season.  D-Will is out with an ankle injury, hopefully returns this week, Boozer is out with a quad injury, he will be back it is big contract year for him.  Another note on Boozer is that he keeps saying that he is not going to leave Utah but if another team drives a truckload of money up to his front door he is only human.  I say that if he could hold off until the end of his contract that would work out the best for me.  So I just have one question, why doesn't he think of me?  Come on Boozer.  I just hope the following, Memo stays for another couple years, Kosta keeps progressing, which he will and CJ, Ronnie and AK47 keep being the unstoppable force that they are right now.  With Y2K (Kyle Korver) healthy we could potentially go all the way next year or the year after that.  This will require the explosion of the Lakers team.  Something has got to give over there.  Come on aren't they breaking a rule somewhere?


Have a good week I know I will now keep your fingers crossed.
