The B's are back

Nice to see the Bruins back in action this week. I just finished watching the Bruins verse Minnesota Wild. Unfortunately it ended with a loss 4-3. They did have a late comeback bid but they fell short. Just thought I'd I'd give some quick observations:

  • I thought the idea was Savard feeding Ryder the puck instead of the other way around. I'm not complaining though.
  • Before those people start on Manny Fernandez please remember Tim Thomas also gave up four goals against Colorado.
  • Minnesota was giving up rebounds all night but fortunately for them no Bruins in sight of them. Need some presence in front of the opposing net.
  • Speaking of which what's with two four goals against nights? What happened to defense?
  • Nice to see Kessel off to a good start.

FBI closing in on suspected Palin email hacker

Did you really think the FBI or Secret Service were going to take Gov. Palin's email hacking lightly? Of course not. In this story they've seem to narrowed the search down to Dave Kernel, 20 a student of the University of Tennessee. Ironicly he's the son of state Representative(Tennessee) Mike Kernel(Democrat). Dave's email has been linked through anonymity service(not so anonymous anymore) that he apparently used to hide his identity. I find it amusing that the guy who ran the service was very cooperative when the FBI came knocking. Dave may have thought it was a harmless prank but I don't think the guys in the suits and pitch black sunglasses have much of sense of humor. To hack into an email account of candidate for Vice President is not something be taken lightly.

Sarah Palin the shocking photo!

I had this photo sent to me by email so I have no idea where it came from. Obviously it's a photoshoped but one could hope! I do believe she's taken a beating by the press. You know the same ones who overlook Obama's lack of experience. The difference is Obama is on top of the ticket and Sarah is the #2. On the other hand she's stolen a lot of thunder from Obama's campaign and it's starting to show in the polls. The sludge the the dems are throwing will not stop. I believe they are in panic mode. It's 2004 again when Kerry failed to successfully squash the Swift boat debacle. Democrats were caught by surprise by the Palin pick and still haven't fully recovered. Do they regret not picking Hillary. Hate to be in her shoes. She came so close to be shunned by Barack. Now another woman could possibly be VP besides her. IfI was a Hillary supporter(I am not!) I'd be furious. So far I believe she's held up under the pressure and has revived McCain's stagnant campaign.

Tougher in Alaska

McCain's choice of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is nothing less than a surprise. Is it risky? Yes he just took away his argument Obama's lack of experience. Though I believe someone from a Alaska is a little tougher than the norm. Plus look at Alaska geographically you've got Russia across the way and you border Canada. There's your foreign policy experience right there. Ok that's a stretch but what the heck.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin

I had a feeling McCain wasn't going to pick someone obvious like Romney(my personal first choice), Rawlenty, Ridge and Leiberman. I believe that any one of those choices ran risks anyway. McCain obviously went for broke. I think it's an excellent choice for VP. It may even garner some still disenfranchised Hillary supporters. Who knows? On top of that she isn't half bad looking either which doesn't hurt. A lot better than Hillary would have been as VP Ewwww!
