National Night Out was a Success Last Night

Great job by the Urbandale Police Department for putting together another great National Night Out last night. Both kids loved it….and got brand new bike helmets, and it’s one of our favorite nights of the year.

Adventureland 1…Me 0.

Yesterday was our first trip to Adventureland…and holy cow, I’m exhausted..in an AWESOME way. What a blast…and the kids had such a good time. Words can barely explain their excitement.

My son was brave enough to ride the Roarin’ Rapids…my daughter braved the teacups…and both had the courage to ride The Underground. My wife got backrub yesterday…and I might need 3-4 days to recover, ha!

First it was the bathroom encounter during the Iowa/Minnesota game a few years ago…and now we have Fountain Lady. Wow, as you can see from the above link…she had quite a night….which included having a fun romp through the Kauffman Stadium fountain.

Bangerz

That’s the name of Miley Cyrus’ new album. Bangerz. Yep, Bangerz. What am I supposed to do with this?

Definitive Proof

This is the definitive proof that everything gets even better with Cookie Monster.

Fight, Fight, Fight!

Sylvester Stallone has called Bruce Willis “greedy & lazy”.

Bruce Willis will not stand for this.

In future news…Sly & Bruce Willis are fighting. Yes!! Behold the beauty of Rocky VIII.

Movies That Messed Us Up as Kids

I’ve mentioned this before…about how “Return to Oz” and “Superman III” scarred me as a kid…terrified me to my very core.

Filmdrunk.com came up with a list as well as movies that messed you up as a kid…

Time Bandits

Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Event Horizon

Sixth Sense

Ghost (I don’t get Ghost being on this list)

Superman 3

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Psycho

Gremlins

The Fly

 

The Worst Way to Lose a Perfect Game

This is absolutely ridiculous…a bowler was one strike away from throwing a perfect game…he releases his final throw…and the pin-setter bar comes down, and BLOCKS THE BALL!

Here’s the video:

He did get a re-throw…and ended up throwing a 7…and ended with a 297. That sucks dude.

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
