Pentagon's Ray Gun

This thing looks awesome. I want'd be the last time anyone shot me with a super-soaker...

Capitals Deadline Deals

I would have liked to see the Caps acquire a fourth goalie just in case.

Seriously though, what a great set of pickups by George McPhee and the Capitals. We definitely seemed to need a play-making center, and we got that in Sergei Fedorov. Though I guess nobody told Brooks Laich that, judging by his four points last night...

Great to see Pettinger get a fresh start, he can play much better than he has this season.

Playoff push! Lets go Caps! See you at Verizon Center!

Great Teacher...

Here's a news story on a teacher caught on tape calling her students "dumb."

As a student, I would run into some teachers who would express similar sentiments to me--granted, not as directly as this woman. I did have a few great teachers who believed in me, but I also had some who did not. It wasn't until I got to Wheeling Jesuit University when I realized "Hey! I'm not a COMPLETE moron!" Sadly, some students don't get such a great opportunity. I wonder where I'd be if nobody ever ended up believing in me.

If I were a betting man, I'd wager this kid turns out to be more successful than the angry woman calling her "dumb."

Also, if anybody reading this is a high school senior or junior still looking at applying to schools, give my alma mater WJU a look! It's one of the greatest places in the world.

NHL Trade Deadline

Tomorrow afternoon is the big NHL trade deadline, and those who follow hockey are well aware of how hectic the night before can be. Here's a cool site which seems to be a great place to check out the transactions. It's generally updated quite promptly.

I wonder if the Caps will do anything! It'd be nice if they got an offensive-minded center to fill the void left by Michael Nylander's injury...but I'm sure whatever GM George McPhee chooses will be great!

Food Poisoning...

Had some bad sushi last night. It's unpleasant.

Good news is, they hooked me up to an IV and I'm feeling a little better. I took a pic, since I was bored.

Hope to get healthy soon and back making videos for you. In the past month, I've been sidetracked with a two-week flu and now this. Oh well, it can get plenty worse than this!

Daytona 500 Recap

I guess you can never tell what'll happen at Daytona. (Or Talladega for that matter...)

A wild finish, as always.

Can't help but feel bad for Tony Stewart, who switched lanes while leading to go with his teammate. But you also couldn't help but feel good for Kurt Busch, who pushed his Penske teammate Ryan Newman past Stewart (who punched him earlier in the week, allegedly) for the victory. Good ol' NASCAR...

Here's the finish for those of you who missed it!

Caps beat Tampa

Good to see the Caps get a regulation win against a division opponent last night. It was unfortunate we had dropped the last few.

I thought Sami Lepisto, who was playing in his first ever NHL game, looked good. He looked pretty confident. While we didn't get to see him make an impact on the score sheet, he also wasn't on the ice for either Tampa Bay that's good!

Okay, back to watching the Daytona 500...

Daytona 500 Today!!

Woo!!! Only a few hours left until the 50th running of the Daytona 500!

There are plenty of storylines this year. Will one of the feel good stories play out? Or will we be surprised with the end result? Regardless, go Jeff Gordon!

Oh the excitement!

This is probably my favorite song/video ever. If only I could make a video this amazing.

Shooting Down the Satellite

This sounds awesome. Is it possible to televise something like this?

I hope so. Somehow.

Hey everyone!

It's always great to see good things happen to good people. Steve Grove from YouTube Politics and James Kotecki from Politico's Playbook TV have both been nominated for awards by the Politics Online Conference.

James is nominated for "Best Vlog," while Steve is nominated as "Poli-Tech Innovator of the Year."

I cast my vote for both of them just a moment ago. If you're fans like me, head over to the online ballot and cast your vote for these great friends/professionals!

And if you're not fans YET, check out Steve's "CitizenTube" politics blog on YouTube, as well as James' "Playbook TV" channel as well!

Virginia Primary Tomorrow!

Am I the only one who wishes they could vote in both??

Both races should be very interesting to watch. With everything we've seen so far this election year, I don't think any outcome can be predicted with any certainty.

On a related note, I saw this article today about a 21 year old superdelegate who was recently taken to breakfast by Chelsea Clinton, and receives many calls on behalf of Clinton and Obama. Can you imagine being a college junior and getting persuasive phone calls from a former President?? How does that even happen!

See you at the polls tomorrow!

Mike Green is the "Real Deal"

Mike Green is the real deal, and don't let anybody tell you otherwise.

His overtime goal in yesterday's game was his third game-winner of the season and 15th goal overall (leading all defensemen). He logs more and more ice time each night, sometimes over half the game.

Mike Green deserves to be seriously considered for the Norris Trophy this year, but it seems few others are giving him the credit he truly deserves.

Caps owner Ted Leonsis actually had a neat stat on his blog today--Mike Green has scored as many goals as Jaromir Jagr so far this season.

Let it be known throughout the land!

Mike Green shall now be referred to as Mike "Real Deal" Green!

My friend Matt was the first person I heard apply that nickname, and I like it. Perhaps now the doubters will be forced to give him more credit.

Newt Gingrich

Back in Virginia. I saw Newt Gingrich at the mall today. Someone who I was with (who shall remain nameless) said "Hey! Tip O'Neill!"

It was funny. I hope he didn't hear.

Caps in First Place!

Woo! I had to post this before tonight's games, since Atlanta or Florida may (temporarily!) usurp the Caps' position in the NHL standings...but, woo!!

The media hasn't given the Caps the respect they deserve, even as they climbed from the bottom of the NHL standings to division leaders...but I suspect they'll receive all the respect in the world once they make the playoffs and start to make some noise (the Caps are 20-10-4 since hiring new head coach Bruce Boudreau). Also, I can't remember the exact statistic, but I think Alex Ovechkin has scored A BAGILLION goals during that stretch.

Big game vs. Carolina this weekend...

Greeting from Miami. I'm writing this from the pool. Woo!

Can you have pizza delivered to the hotel pool? Hmm....

Hotel pic: Not a bad view!

Caps win in OT!

I think you could effectively sum up any part of tonight's game with the following phrase: "Are you kidding me?"

It could have been uttered after Nash's 3-on-5 breakaway. It could have been said after the referee tripped up Morrisonn on the goal that put Columbus up by one in the third. And it definitely could have been yelled in disbelief as Alex Ovechkin scored his second of the night in game-winning overtime fashion.

I couldn't help but feel bad for the referee, Bill McCreary, he certainly didn't mean it. But, boy, what a tough break for Morrisonn. It's tough to defend against Rick Nash and even tougher to do so with an injured foot....let alone having to do so with an injured foot and a REFEREE TACKLING YOU!! Still, just one of those tough breaks....McCreary seems like a great referee from what I've seen.

The Caps definitely deserved the two points tonight, and it would have been a shame if they left with anything less. Congrats to the team on a spectacular effort--this fan certainly appreciated it!

Remy on Facebook

People keep telling me I need to start a GoRemy Facebook account, so I finally caved and made one. I enjoy keeping in touch with my MySpace friends, so we'll see how it goes. Please--let's be friends! Here's the link to my profile:

See you there!

Did anybody else see that catch the Giants' receiver Tyree made with his head on the game-winning drive??? Unbelievable!
