Hello! Welcome to my journal. My LJ tends to be filled with many stream of consciousness-like posts, fan-girl ramblings, Penguins hockey and Steelers football squee, inane family and work stories, and photographs. I share my world, the Mo-colored lens is an optimistic one (usually). When the mood strikes I get on my soapbox and share my opinions of the wider world.

Inappropriate Gesture

nhl lockout

Mostly millionaires fighting over more money then I could ever hope to make in my lifetime. Heck even guys making the minimum will make more money then I ever will.

I'm not with the players or the owners. It's BOTH their faults.

You love the game? Then play it and allow the players to play it without all this ridiculous back and forth.

Poll #1832434 Playoff Bound

Who is excited for the start of the NHL Playoffs?

I'm interested, but not all get-up-go about the playoffs.
Nope, not me; my favorite team is out of it.
Not me, I don't follow hockey.

Poll #1817059 Football

Did you watch the Super Bowl?

I tuned in for the half-time performance.
I checked in every once and while to find out the score, but didn't watch straight through.
