Penguins? Penguins!

Today is a very special day. I bet why you are wondering about this special day now. Let me start by tell you that my esteemed colleague, Bryan Mathews, loves penguins. His mother told me a story that he couldn’t pronounce the word penguin, so he would say “peanut” instead. I dedicate this short but sweet blog to Bryan and his “peanuts.”

Now I will tell you why today is so special. It’s National Penguin Awareness Day! I hope all of you take the time to think about your favorite penguins. The penguins that have touched you in some sort of way.

Now I will put some videos and pictures of our favorite penguins.

I’m With Coco.

I shall dedicate this blog to a very special person. This special person is Conan O’Brien. Conan has had a place in my heart for awhile now. He has made millions laugh at his funny remarks. Not to mention the laughs the he brought us at the expense of his “Walker, Texas Ranger” lever. If you do not know why I am writing this by know I shall tell you a brief story.

NBC has aired The Tonight Show since 1954. The most notable host is of course Johnny Carson. Carson, however, is not the problem in this situation. Carson left the show in 1992 and was replaced with Jay Leno. Leno continued his run until 2009 and was replaced by Conan O’Brien.

O’Brien was once the host of “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.” He started the gig in 1993 where he held it until 2009, when he was called up to the big leagues.

Now it seems that NBC has stuck their foot in their mouth and are trying to push back his time slot. They are trying to make room for Leno’s show, which is getting moved back in an attempt to make better ratings.

As a youthful watcher of the “Tonight Show” it pains me to see one of the best comedians getting pushed around. Conan stated that he will leave the show if they push it back until 12:05 AM. I am glad that he wont support this change. I support him and so should you.

There are several ways to support Conan. One is to join this facebook group.

Come on everyone and support Conan. If you don’t we could be missing out on this sweet action.

Playoffs Don’t Talk About the Playoffs… Wait it’s time for the Playoffs?

Thank you Jim Mora for this…

Its been a week of the NFL playoffs, and I’m still recovering from the sorry end to the Cardinals vs. Packers game (I’m a Packers fan). We here at Thrillwaters love our tackle football, and we are really sad and bored when it isn’t on television every week. We felt the need to start these playoffs right, and find some our favorite football related music/dancing videos.

LaDainian Tomlinson Electric Glide

1985 Chicago Bears Super Bowl Shuffle

1986 Oakland Raiders Silver and Black Attack

I love tackle football, and I only like Hurt Warner in St. Louis Rams blue and gold.

Welcome Back….NOT!

Sorry about the title but I kind of got use to not having to do anything. I am going to dedicate this blog to Kelsey Nuckolls. She is responsible for making our ad in the O’Colly paper. If you saw it, then you know how awesome it is. I will put it at the end of this post to display it for those who haven’t seen it.

Anyway, going back to school is awful but there is one thing that keeps me going strong right now. That one thing is Jersey Shore. This show is the ultimate reality TV show. It is basically the Real World but with Italian Americans.  During their escapades at “the shore”, the cast gets into all kinds of trouble. The male members of the cast like to go on “creep mode” and try to pick up girls. The girls of the cast are just as entertaining to watch. They always try to look their best when they go to the club to fist pump.

Anyway, to really experience this show, you should definitely watch it in it’s entirety on MTV on Thursday nights at 10 PM ET/PT.

Here is a link to get a quick clip of last week’s events.

Enjoy,

Brock

A Challenge to Bryan

My partner in crime is on his way to Chi-Town. That doesn’t mean that the tomfoolery between us has to end.

Mr. Mathews, I challenge you to a gentlemens dual. Until you get home we both must make a post on here of the strangest or funniest thing we saw that day. If you would like, you can post a picture on here just to prove it. Oh and cheating is encouraged. I hope you are having fun on your trip. I probably should have text you this message but being the honorable man you are, I feel that you will accept this challenge with great vigor. A toast to you.

What’s that you say? What are the winnings? For you, a nice 6-pack of Diet Coke. For me, a nice 6-pack of Coca-Cola.

I hope fortune finds you.

Brock

Finals? We don’t need no stinkin’ finals.

Herro to all you boys and grills. My brain is on the verge of shutting down but luckily I am using what’s left of it to provide you with some sense of sanity. I don’t have much time left before the meltdown but I thought I would post a video for all of you so that your week might be a tad bit better.

This is “All is Love” by Karen O and the Kids from the Where the Wild Things Are OST. It’s getting me through the week.

Well that’sofhdfgdisudfhsndfbn;rtkjbnkdf brain dead.

Mopeds? Mopeds!

I am going to tell you a secret word. Once I tell you, continue to read the blog and every time you read it I want you to scream. I don’t care if you are around people or in the library. When you hear it scream!

The secret word is…Moped.

Now onto the blog.

Apparently if you attend any home basketball games or wrestling matches, then you have a change to win an orange MOPED! AHHHHHHH! If you didn’t scream then I will say this..LAME.

I don’t know about you but I have always wanted one of these bad boys. Just imagine being about to cruise around the streets in a…..moped. Ahhhh. (Don’t be lame) Anyway, this is a great incentive to go cheer on your Cowboys and Cowgirls. You shouldn’t need any incentive to go cheer them on, but I am not here to judge. Go win a…MOPED!!!!! AHHHHHH!

Brock

By the way, if you don’t know about the secret password and screaming, then you missed out on Pee-Wee’s Playhouse as a child

This is a video of a soccer player from New Mexico. She is very mean. I am proud to say she is not on the OSU girls soccer team. Who I am proud to say made it to the second round of the NCAA playoffs. Great job girls.
