Fave Five Friday – Man Rules

October 23, 2009

Before our softball game last weekend, the team circled up and did a prayer. One of our teammates asked one of the new guys if holding hands was ok, and somebody else replied with “Yeah, just don’t interlock the fingers… Man Rule #3!”. Ahahaha! I thought that was pretty classic!

So it got me thinking. What other “Man Rules” do we have floating around out there? You know, dem rules that are unwritten and unspoken, but very well known.

Here are a few off the top of my head (and here are some I actually found from a previous post). Feel free to use the comment area below to add your own! 🙂

  • Beer and Poke, it’s what’s for dinner.
  • Boys don’t cry.
  • You are disowned if you don’t know how to change your own oil or change a flat tire.
  • Don’t watch sissy shows like The Hills. Oops! 😉
  • Shaving/grooming should only be done around your mouth area.
  • Man to man hugs should last no longer than 0.00001 seconds. 😛

Any others out there? Feel free to be as creative as you can!

Shooots! Happy VHO7V Friday y’all! Have a great (UFC 104) weekend and I’ll see ya next week!

Fave Five Friday: Reality Show Couples

June 26, 2009

So it was recently reported that Jon and Kate Gosselin have filed for divorce. Gee, who saw that one coming?

Along those lines, we’ll go with that theme for this week’s Fave Five blog: Fave Five Reality Show Couples. I needs ta be honest though. I’m more excited to fill out the least fave list. Let’s see what we come up with shall we?

Fave Five Reality Show Couples:

  1. Flavor Flav + Anyone– you gotsta love his passion and honesty for trying to find true love on “Flavor of Love.” And, although he’s admirably decided to stay with his baby’s mama following the 3rd and last season, a part of me still wants him to keep going. Can’t get enough of that guy man! LOL!
  2. Travis Barker + Shanna Moakler – although they’ve had a lot of drama following them in the news, I was a fan of their show “Meet the Barkers” back in the day.
  3. Nick Lachey + Jessica Simpson – how can you not like both of them? They seemed to be nice peoples, at least individually… Maybe their life timing was just not right? I secretly wouldn’t mind seeing them get back together and film another season of “Newlyweds”. 8)
  4. New York + Tailor Made – I don’t really like Tailor Made, but he and New York (Tiffany Pollard) were like the most unlikely of couples, so “I Love New York” was just fun to watch. Like a train wreck I couldn’t look away from. 😛
  5. Jeff Conaway + Vikki Lizzi – one word: dysfunctional. Not sure why I wasted hours of my life watching “Celebrity Rehab” but they were also fun/ridiculous to watch.

Bottom Five Reality Show Couples:

  1. Spencer Pratt + Heidi Montag – these two are number 1 on the hated list and won’t ever get overtaken. Why does anyone even care what they’re up to? I have no clue. Gotta hand it to Spencer for his decent marketing skills though.
  2. Jon Gosselin + Kate Gosselin – again… who cares!?
  3. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline – ditto
  4. Christopher Knight + Adrianne Curry – again…
  5. Audrina and Justin-Bobby – need I say more?

If making your list proves too challenging, feel free to just dish/vent about any of the above (or others you love/despise).

Happy VHO7V Friday y’all! Have a good weekend! I’m off to Alaska (Bon Voyage!), but be sure to check in for some exciting blogs ahead:

* Monday, June 29“BJ Penn Answers Your Questions! [Video]”– Remember the questions you guys submitted for BJ Penn last month? I caught Bruddah BJ on tape answering those questions! This one will be promo’d on the front page of the physical paper as well. Support the ’tiser and pick up a copy k?

Use Caution When Dialing Certain Area Codes

April 7, 2009

It’s News Day Tuesday, so here’s another in the series of WWE edumacation. This one’s on Area Code (dialing) safety. Yeah, I know, I know… these aren’t so popular in the comments department, but as long as I can help a handful of you peeps out with some of these, I’m satisfied.

Do Not DIAL AREA CODE 809, 284, AND 876

This is very important information provided to us by AT&T. Don’t ever dial area code 809.

This one is being distributed all over the U.S. This is pretty scary, especially given the way they try to get you to call.

Be sure you read this and pass it on.

They get you to call by telling you that it is information about a family member who has been ill or to tell you someone has been arrested, died, or to let you know you have won a wonderful prize, etc.

In each case, you are told to call the 809 number right away… Since there are so many new area codes these days, people unknowingly return these calls.

If you call from the U.S., you will apparently be charged $2425 per-minute.

Or, you’ll get a long recorded message. The point is they will try to keep you on the phone as long as possible to increase the charges.

WHY IT WORKS:

The 809 area code is located in the Dominican Republic. The charges afterward can become a real nightmare. That’s because you did actually make the call. If you complain, both your local phone company and your long distance carrier will not want to get involved and will most likely tell you that they are simply providing the billing for the foreign company. You’ll end up dealing with a foreign company that argues they have done nothing wrong.

Please forward this entire message to your friends, family and colleagues to help them become aware of this scam.

Fave Five Friday – Guilty Pleasures

August 8, 2008

Much love to C to tha G for this one, aka Chicken Grease. It’s a good one, even though I’m not sure if I can even think of 5 for myself. Haha! Anyway, how about it? Let’s celebrate Fave Five Friday together by posting your “Guilty Pleasures” list below! Holla!

  1. The Hills – the future brother in law gives me heat for watching this with the lady and his gf (while giggling in our pjs), but it’s pretty addicting now that I know the story behind these peeps. Haha!
  2. Flavor of Love – this show is such utter nonsense, but I love it! It’s sad/depressing that he (supposedly) won’t be doing any more.
  3. Toppo – you know that stick like snack from Japan filled with chocolate in the middle? Mmmmm!
  4. Dixie Chicks – I actually dig on country music in general. Yee haw!
  5. Boxer Briefs – Not even sure if this counts as a guilty pleasure, but cut me some slack, I’m reaching here. Hehe! Anyway, no to boxers and a hella no to tighty whiteys (sp?), so where better to settle than in between? Comfort with support. Loves it!

Well, there you have it. Way more of me than you cared to know. Don’t leave me hangin’ and make me look like the only crazy one out thurr. Spill the beans yo!

Have a nice weekend y’all!

P.S. In other news, ex porn queen Jenna Jameson is reportedly preggers from boyfriend and MMA fighter Tito Ortiz. I’ll bite my tongue and leave the smart comments to you folks… Also, Ortiz has reportedly signed with Affliction and may be on their October card FYI. Thoughts?

The Hills – Season 3 Finale

May 13, 2008

So as I was helping my sis set up her computer at her crib last night, I could hear the sounds (without even looking) of the season finale of the Hills (Season 3) in the background as she flipped the channels.

I never thought it would get to this point.

One day after telling you how NOT soft I am and that I never cry, my ears now perk up when I hear the sounds of Lauren’s raspy voice trade blows with Lo’s high school giggle.

How did we get here? Well, besides MTV’s second-to-none editing of the show (making things more dramatic than they actually are), I’ve been “forced” to sit and watch it with the lady, since it’s one of her favorite shows. I guess I owe it to her for all the hours of “The Ultimate Fighter” and “Art Mann Presents” I make her watch. *grin*

Sis changed the channel so I unfortunately didn’t get to hear the show, but in the back of my mind, I was happy that, back at home, my beloved DVR was recording every juicy second.

Now remember, fellas out there in my situation, our alibi when anyone asks is to ABL: always blame the lady. Make comments like “She makes me watch it,” or “It’s my way of spending quality time with my woman,” (awww) or “I was just channel surfing and it happen to be on,” or “Dude, what’s wrong with you? I watch it for the chicks!”

Ah, one of life’s guilty pleasures I guess…

Talk to me:

  • No tell me what happened cause I nevah watch um yet, but what are some of your (tv) guilty pleasures?
  • What do you think of MTV’s absurd editing? Do you care that some scenes seem rather staged?
  • How do you and your other like to spend your tv watching hours?

P.S. No fo-get: Gina Carano on E:60 this afternoon, The Ultimate Fighter tomorrow, Inside MMA, IFL and X-1 Legends on Friday, and Hawaii’s own BJ Penn headlining next week Saturday’s UFC 84. See complete MMA (Hawaii) TV schedule for May.
