Lately, I have been seeing more and more shows and movies going back to what works………..punch dancing. That is right. Screenwriters, producers and directors have all seen the light. They want more $, but how are they going to get it. Big explosions? Sexy ladies? Crude comedy? Think again America. It is all about the sexiness of punch dancing.

Exhibit A

Hot Rod isn’t hot for nothing. He does a great re-enactment in his quiet spot.

Exhibit B

Bret McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords is the sexiest New Zealander known to man……..

AND THE ORIGINAL

Moral of the story: We need more punch dancing.

In honor of the annual Grant County Fair, I decided to do a “Some Sweet Old School Olympic Moments” blog post.

1. Kerri Strug in the 1996 Olympics

Um, this is an olympic moment that defines the 90’s. Kerri Strug busts up her ankle on the 1st vault then goes out and does a 2nd vault to beat the commies and win the Gold. (We get a little peek at her parents and I’m pretty sure I’ve seen pictures of Jeff Earl wearin the same glasses as Strug’s mom in the 70’s)

2. The Dream Team

An amazing vid of an amazing team with an amazing song in the background. The Dream Team completely dominated the competition and inspired all NBA players today. USA rules once again.

3. Jesse Owens

A black man winning 4 gold medals in Nazi Germany. Pretty amazing. Jesse Owens = bad mamma jamma. Here is a link to Wiki wiki pedia.

4. Derek Redomond ’92 Barcelona

Derek Redmond pulls a hammie while racing in the 400m (my event in high school). He pulls up, then tries to finish the race out. His dad comes and helps him cross the finish line. Classy.

5. Tommie Smith/John Carolos ’68 Mexico City

These two used the Olympics as a platform to protest against racial injustice. sweet beans.

6. ’80 Winter Olympics USA Hockey Team

The Amateur USA Hockey Team beats the professional USSR team.

7. Mark Andrew Spitz ’72 Munich Fools

UHHHHHHHH Mark Spitz with a Stache.

Um, I don’t really have a problem with people saying “Soda” or “Coke”, it just bugs me when they say that I’m wrong.

This is a little blurb I got from a website.

The word soda comes from soda-water (sodium bicarbonate with acid to create fizz). Its original meaning was sodium carbonate, Na2CO3, but has evolved into one of the generic terms for a soft drink.

Pop was introduced later in 1812 by Robert Southey,

A new manufactory of a nectar, between soda-water and ginger-beer, and called pop, because ‘pop goes the cork’ when it is drawn.

Trailing soda and pop in popularity is coke, which has influence in the south likely due to the location of the Coca-Cola plant in Georgia. “I’ll have a coke,” “What kind of coke?”, “Root beer please”.

People, it is clear that POP prevails. For a link to where I got this info, go here.
