The Pregnancy Waddle Explained.

Pregnant women often suffer from the one-two punch of constipation and gas.  While many appear to have an external glow to them, they are one big mess on the inside, which can result in motor changes.  Many attribute the pregnant waddle to increased body weight from their growing uterus, while others speculate their quirky gait my be caused by continuous bowel discomfort.  Indeed, the combination of constipation and excess flatulence is enough to make anyone walk funny.

----

So the Oil managed to pull off 2 straight games with losing in a shootout, and of course one of those games came against the flames.  You know what, I'll take the 2 points.  We aren't doing so well right now so I will take the points as they come.  Hall finally got his first goal last night, so now all the rookies, Paavaari, Eberle, and Hall have scored a goal this year.  I'll bet they each score at least 10 goals this year, with maybe Eberle hitting 15 goals.  You read it hear first.

----

In people's lives, they have accomplishments, and when they  accomplish these might tasks, they feel good about themselves.  Case in point my brother in law, Clayton (Osato).
The guy is finishing up his chiro degree down in San Jose, so you think that would be one of his big accomplishments, nope.  How about busting a guys nose in a hockey fight a few months back, nope.  Maybe even working on the best 'canadian san joe' tan, nope.
Got word that Osato broke his weightlifting straps in the gym doing deadlifts.  To say that Ostao was ecstatic was an understatement.  Deadlifting over 450 pounds, and his wrist straps broke.  I am at a loss for words, this definitely is one, if not the best accomplishment I have ever come across.  Here is the visual evidence.



Congrats, Dorian Yates would be proud.

----

Let's see if the travelling gong show does any better this week.  I am referring to the Riders.  They actually look like a travelling show you would see at the circus right now.  They need to shape up before the playoffs, and we have 2 games left to get it done.

Yes yes, I will eventually write about my new born son Ryder on the blog, just haven't yet, don't get your panties in a knot.

METALLICA Bassist Gets Covered In Cream Pies For 46th Birthday; Photos, Video Footage - Oct. 25, 2010




Video footage and photos of METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo getting covered in cream pies for his 46th birthday at the conclusion of the band's October 23, 2010 performance in Perth, Australia can be viewed below.



In a September 2008 interview with RollingStone.com, Trujillo spoke about how he landed the METALLICA gig. An excerpt from the chat follows below.



RollingStone.com: You joined METALLICA in February, 2003. How much did you know about the dynamics within the band at the time?



Robert: "They were in the middle of a bunch of transitional things. They were recording the album ['St. Anger'], still doing tracking and mixing, and also trying to find a new bass player. I received a phone call. I was in Tahiti on vacation. I checked my voice mail, and I had Lars and Kirk on there. Lars was in the background: 'Join our band!' They were probably out on the town, having a few cocktails, calling all the bass players on their list."



RollingStone.com: Do you know how you got on that list?



Robert: "I'm not 100 percent sure. I think it was a combination of things. One was I toured with METALLICA, with SUICIDAL TENDENCIES. That's where I originally met everybody. And less than a year prior to me receiving the call, a mutual friend of Kirk's called and said, 'Kirk and I are coming down with some friends. Can you show us some surf spots around L.A.?' I thought that was neat: that Kirk, the vampire I knew, the nocturnal man, was ready to explore daylight and surfing in Southern California. He was in an RV with three friends. We spent a weekend hitting different spots. The whole thing, at least from what I understand, was they each had people they wanted to bring into the auditions. I became Kirk's guy. From my understanding, Lars wasn't aware of much that I had done. [In addition to playing with SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, Trujillo toured and recorded with OZZY OSBOURNE and worked with ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell.] I don't know where James' head was at."



Australian METALLICA fans can expect more pie action on November 18 when the band plays Melbourne on guitarist's Kirk Hammett's 48th birthday.

AC/DC: 'The Ultimate Illustrated History' Book Author Interviewed - Oct. 25, 2010




Voyageur Press has has just released "AC/DC High-Voltage Rock 'N' Roll - The Ultimate Illustrated History", which follows the band from its roots in Sydney, Australia, to its most recent releases and sold-out world tours. No stone is left unturned, from the band's formation and early gigs on the club circuit Down Under, to the 1980 death of singer Bon Scott and ultimately astounding worldwide success. Jam-packed with more than 400 illustrations — from handbills, posters, backstage passes, and vinyl from around the globe, as well as rare candid and performance photography — this massive contribution to the AC/DC library gives fans a all-access visual tour through almost four decades of unadulterated rock mastery. Additionally, sidebars and essays from top rock scribes examine all studio releases, document the band's numerous personnel changes, and delve into the guitar gear of the Young brothers, while musicians past and present comment and reflect on the band's lasting influence.



Complete with a specially commisioned band history and discography, an afterword from DEF LEPPARD's Joe Elliott, and a complete index, this book brings fans as close to the band as possible without a ticket.



AOL's Noisecreep recently conducted an interview with the book's authord, London-based freelance journalist Phil Sutcliffe. An excerpt from the chat follows below.



Noisecreep: How long in the making was your AC/DC book? Was a lot of research required to unearth the photos and set lists?



Sutcliffe: It took about six months, but the book is a bit unusual in that, when I say that, I don't just mean my time. I was writing my 30,000 words, but at the same time, a bunch of other writers were hammering away on the album reviews and other "articles" the book contains and the special heroes of an illustrated history, the picture/visual researchers at Voyageur were doing their magic thing. It's a real skill that most of us writers don't possess and discovering all those photos from around the world plus the memorabilia and so on. So what I stress that, although I'm lucky enough to have my name on the cover of a book, I'm proud to be involved in, this really is a team endeavor, just like a rock band, in fact.



Noisecreep: What was the most poignant thing you learned about the band while doing the research?



Sutcliffe: Poignant is a good word to introduce when thinking about AC/DC because it's easy to imagine they're a bunch of hard nut Aussies, almost superhuman and unfeeling. No way, so I like the human side of thinking about those Young boys as immigrants in a strange land, Australia, when they'd just flown in from Scotland to make a better life; the story of Bon Scott finding his way through from a kind of lost childhood and mid-20s, and then the tragedy of his death; the astonishing way the band came together again after that, encouraged by Bon's dad and then "saved" by discovering such a kindred spirit as Brian; Malcolm's iron-willed recognition that he had an alcohol problem and self-motivated recovery from it; the ups and downs of Phil Rudd, a rock of a drummer but clearly a fragile man in some ways ... Everything that says these are real human beings getting through all that to bring us all those good-times-rolling nights for almost 40 years.



Read the entire interview from Noisecreep.



Formed in 1973 by the brothers Angus and Malcolm Young, AC/DC has gone on to become one of the most popular and bestselling bands in history, thanks to live-wire stage shows and a sonic attack that has attracted fans from all rock camps.



AC/DC is often credited as pioneers of heavy metal, a tag that Angus and Malcolm Young both eschew, insisting they're simply a rock 'n' roll band. However the band is classified, their starring role in the history of rock is undeniable. Now, there is a book that dares to tackle that legacy.

Bruce Dickinson:  Soccer Team Chauffeur.

Iron Maiden superstar Bruce Dickinson, who moonlights as an airline pilot for Astraeus Airlines, will be flying the Liverpool soccer team to Naples this Thursday for their Europa League clash with Napoli.




Dickinson told BBC News, “I was originally supposed to be going to Iceland and flying down to Las Palmas and Tenerife, but this looked a lot more interesting so I’m flying the team down to Naples.”



Dickinson, who joined Iron Maiden in 1981, holds a commercial pilot’s license, and regularly flies Boeing 757 planes for the U.K.-based Astraeus, where he is both captain and marketing director.



“People ask me, ‘Which do you enjoy more?’ and I honestly can’t say, but what I can say is that I am never, ever going to give up singing,” he said. “That’s been my life and fortunately I’m in a job where I can get the time off to do it.”



Dickinson has managed to combine his rock star chores with flying planes. “In fact, the airline that I work for, Astraeus, we designed an aeroplane for an Iron Maiden tour and flew it ’round the world; we’ve done it twice now,” he said. “It’s never been done before, bands have had private jets before, but no band until Maiden has even come up with the idea of taking all the equipment, and the road crew and the band on one aircraft. It’s like the biggest tour bus in the world.”

The Ritual Poo

This poo occurs at the same time each day.  Owing to the clockwork nature of this poo, you can prepare by having a newspaper ready and your favorite bathroom location scoped out ahead of time.  The regularity of these poos may provide comfort in an otherwise unpredictable world.

Synonyms:Rite of Passage, Palm Poo, Calendar Crap.

Another day, another Porksword quote...this next entry is called "Fun on a Stick".

Where I live in Calgary, during the summer about once a week, a Dickie Dee comes strolling through the streets with his music on.  Now, nobody would ever buy from this guy because you wouldn't know he was in the streets, but you hear the music he has blaring from his ride.  The second you hear that music, you are like Eddie Murphy from the stand up routine in RAW, "Ice Cream, Ice Cream", and you go sprinting out to get some...

This isn't the first time I have ran out into the streets for this dude while living in Calgary.  Here is the photo evidence.



Here I am flagging down Mr. Dee

Here is a shot of his ride


Me and Dickie


The classic logo, nothing beats a sideways popsicle with wheels.


Here I am with my haul


Another shot in case you didn't see the first one.


The Classic Astro Pop...


Now of course, I didn't even really want ice cream at the time, but I got caught up in the moment.  This thing is, this dude could drive by in the middle of winter, and I would still be out there shivering, buying from him.

So I guess there was an election in town, and I guess we voted in a new mayor.  Who knew.  I am still keeping my streak alive at never voting, ever.  Actually I lied, I guy I went to school with, Jordan Cooper, was running 15 years ago back in Saskatoon, and I voted for him, but he didn't win.
Let's see how the new mayor of Calgary does !!!

Rider news.  Congi and Bagg out for the Year with knee surgeries.  I am thinking we will put Koch or Grice-Mullen in at his sport.  Johnson will be handling the place kicking.  I am fine with that.  We just need to bounce back from last week.  I am just hoping we can do the 'shot gun snap - to hand off to Cates' many times this game to be stuffed again.  We'll see.  But seriously, things need to change, and we only have 3 games left to do it.

No Monday Morning Metal



Sorry crew, didn't have time for the Monday Morning Metal because I went to Jackass 3D on sunday night.  So I figure a movie review will take it's place.

So myself, urty, wimp, and osato went to the 10pm showing on sunday night.  Now everyone knows what jackass is about, but I was just wondering what the heck they were going to do this time.

What a great show, I mean, all the show is is stupid stunts and pranks, but this one was awesome.  It was good seeing the ol' jackass crew back at it again. 

But I am wondering, when is someone going to get seriously injured, or paralyzed ?

There were some scenes that were in 3D, which was pretty cool, but the jackass show sells itself.

Here is a couple pics of us with our 3D glasses on.




I give the show 8 jackasses out of 10.

Not sure if you saw this or not, but I am sure you heard about Jodan Eberle's first NHL goal.  Now, this clip is the Oiler players giving him a hard time, it's hilarious.

It was a bad sports weekend, the Flames beat the Oilers and the Stamps beat the Riders.  I was at the hockey game saturday night.  The oil looked decent, but they still need a lot of work.  As for the riders....man, where to begin.  Can't stop the run, no pass rush, and no protection for Durant.  That is all I will say about that.

Dr. Stool Says, "Stool Scales Don't Lie"

The Bristol Stool Scale is a tool used by gastroenterologists to help standardize the discourse on poo.  Utilizing pictres and descriptions such as, "like a sausage but with cracks," the scale breaks down poo into seven types.  British physicians first published this poo pictorial in 1990 and found that the appearance of poo correlated with the amount of time it spends in the colon; the harder and lumpier the stool, the slower the travel time.
Bristol Stool Scale:
Type 1:  Separate hard lumps, like nuts (hard to pass)
Type 2:  Sausage-shaped but lumpy
Type 3:  Like a sausage but with cracks on its surface
Type 4:  Like a sausage or sanke, smooth and soft
Type 5:  Soft blobs with clear-cut edges (passed easily)
Type 6:  Fluffy pieces with ragged edges, a mushy stool
Type 7:  Watery, no solid pieces (entirely liquid)

"Someone burned the Penthouse Club, burned it to the ground, now grandpa sits at home tonight, he sits home with a frown......."

The old strip club in Saskatoon has been closed for many many years, and since then, different bars and businesses have been in the building.  Well there is a new club opening up in the old strip club and the new owner decided to do some reno's.  He rips off the drywall to get to the cement and comes across this painted on the wall.....brings a tear to my eye.

SLASH Performs National Anthem At Atlanta Thrashers Vs. Los Angeles Kings Game - Oct. 12, 2010




Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES) performed the U.S. national anthem before tonight's hockey game between the Los Angeles Kings and the Atlanta Thrashers at the Staples Center in Southern California. Watch video footage of his appearance below.



Slash will support Ozzy Osbourne on a U.S. tour in January/February.



Slash recently said that he seriously considered trying to end his 14-year feud with Axl Rose so that Rose would sing on Slash's self-titled solo debut.



Slash recruited a number of different singers to perform on the record and said, "The thought of him crossed my mind at one point. I thought, 'Axl could sing the shit out of any of these songs.'"



So why didn't he make the call? Slash said, "I wanted to put the record out in this millennium."

VINCE NEIL Says He Bought An Airplane To Transport His Dogs - Oct. 11, 2010




Jane Stevenson of the QMI Agency recently conducted an interview with MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman Vince Neil. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.



On his latest solo album, "Tattoos & Tequila", which is mainly a collection of '70s covers by such artists as SWEET, CHEAP TRICK, AEROSMITH, SEX PISTOLS, ELVIS PRESLEY and ELTON JOHN:



"I just wanted to make a really cool party album.



"The thing with these songs, each one has a memory attached to it. This whole thing is like a window into my life. Every single song has a memory attached to it. I could picture in my mind what I was doing listening to these songs. I was a young kid going to see bands on the Sunset Strip and it takes me back to those days."



On next year's Crüe Fest 3 tour commemorating MÖTLEY CRÜE's 30th anniversary:



"That's when they start calling you legendary and icon when it just really means old. For MÖTLEY to still be viable and selling out arenas and festivals 30 years later, it just shows that we weren't just a flash in the pan. We're very multi-generational now. You see, not only the fans that grew up with you, that are in their 40s, but with their kids, 12-year-olds with 'Shout At the Devil' shirts on. I see a lot of dads with their five year olds on their shoulders taking them to their first rock experience. And attorneys standing next to tattoo artists. It's everything, that's the beauty of being of being in MÖTLEY right now."



On his autobiography, "Tattoos & Tequila", that follows the CRÜE biography, "The Dirt", which came out in 2001.



"That book ['The Dirt'] was written about four guys. I had a voice in it but I just touched on subjects. I touched on my youth, you know growing up in Compton, and witnessing murder after murder and thinking it was normal, and the tragedies with my daughter and the car wrecks (his best friend was killed and Neil, who was driving, served jail time for vehicular manslaughter), getting into music and my high school days and being in MÖTLEY CRÜE. 'The Dirt' is 10 years old so a lot of stuff has happened in the last decade. It's just really the first time I've really told my story."



On his two cocker spaniels:



"Those are the kids. I mean, just because of them I had to buy a jet. I bought an airplane for the dogs 'cause I have a home in San Francisco and Las Vegas and my (fourth and soon-to-be ex) wife won't put them on the crate so I bought a jet to get my dogs back and forth. I would have to charter planes for the dogs all the time and it was getting so expensive that I realized it was cheaper to buy a plane than to keep chartering it."

ADLER Wants God To Talk AXL Into Reunion Of Classic GUNS N' ROSES - Oct. 11, 2010




Connie Hall-Scott of the Dalton Daily Citizen recently conducted an interview with former GUNS N' ROSES and current ADLER'S APPETITE drummer Steven Adler. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.



On being completely sober and on top of his game:



Adler: "It's great to be off drugs and alcohol. It's so nice to have money in my pockets. I wish I had put one percent of the energy I put into getting high into doing positive things for myself ... Drugs got to be everything. It was all 'When am I gonna get it? How am I gonna get it? Where will I get the money? When will the dealer be here?' Now, off the drugs, I have so much energy! It's about the music again."



On whether there is any way that the classic lineup of GUNS N' ROSES could ever reunite for a concert:



Adler: "I would really like that. I would love to work with those guys — all of them — but I'm not going to wait. I've wasted enough of my life, the past 20 years with the drugs and all. It's time to do the right thing — which is get the band (GN'R) together and do a reunion. We owe it to the fans and everybody who supported GN'R for so long... and I got ADLER'S APPETITE, but when those suckers want to do something, I'm ready."



On Axl Rose's unwavering refusal to consider a reunion with the other members of GUNS N' ROSES' classic lineup:



Adler: "I put prayers in with Jesus and God all the time. 'Please just go talk to Axl.' I say. I love the stuff we did together in my heart and my soul. It needs to be taken out of the shell and put back in the world. Two generations of people have already missed it. I think it's unfair. I love those five guys — they mean more to me than anyone except my grandmother and my dogs. But there was so much fighting all the time (in GN'R), but like my grandpa said, time heals all wounds. My wounds are healed."

Urty with a Concert Review...

Urty Concert Review from last weeks Rock show




The bill was Carnifex. Unearth, All that Remains and As I Lay Dying



I missed the first band, but who cares



Next up was Unearth - I love these guys, seen them now at least 4 times. Always put on a energetic, heavy, deadly show......these guys are great, and they did no dissapoint.....they were great last night. Plus they played my favorite Unearth song "glorious Nightmare"...here is a video for that song...







Next up was one of my favorite bands, All That Remains. These guys are brutal, heavy, deadly, awsesome deadly, and super awesome deadly. I have seen them at least 5 times now. They have a new album that is being released next week so they played a few tunes off that album. I was hoping they would have played songs of there album "this darkended heart"...but they did not. That is too bad because it is one of my favourite albums of all time. Show was still good though. If there are any Guitar Hero 2 fans out there, they would have recognized ATR second song last night as it is featured on Guitar Hero 2. The song is called "six"....here is a video for it.









Last up, was the headliner, As I Lay Dying. These guys put on there usual good, heavy, show. They also have a new disk out. Even though I like these guys and have seem them at least 5 times, I find there stage show a little boring.......it was still a good set though. They played my favorite AILD song entitled "Nothing Left". Here is the video for it...





During there encore, I witnesed another mosh pit "Wall of death". All you first timers ask what that is, well it is where the mosh pit seperates down the middle and you pick a "side", then on the lead sigers command, the both sides run together towards each other, and what ensues is a massive human car wreck, they are crazy. Here is a wall of death from a AILD show....







So to recap...

Unearth - awesome

All That Remains - super deadly

As I Lay Dying - reasonably good



I give the show a 7.13087 / 10

The high concentration of methane and hydrogen in human farts is what lends these gaseous emissions their flammable properties. While blue is the most common color of a lighted fart, colors such as orange and yellow are possible depending on both the fart's has composition and the type and concentration of the bacteria residing the the colon.

Not sure is you noticed this during the Ryder Cup last week, but it's all over the internet.  Tiger Woods duffed one of his shots and hit the camera man, right in the camera lens, check out the picture below.


Now, that isn't the big deal, the thing everyone is talking about is the dude to the right of Tiger with the turban looking wig, big moustache, and a cigar in his mouth, can you spot him?  It's like a 'Where's Waldo'.

Here is a better pic of it.

Anyone watch the Oiler Game last night ?   4-0 victory.  What a 'highlight reel' goal by Eberle.  But I am a little disappointed in all the hype going on allready.  Sure, they won the game, and the kids looked great, but c'mon, its the first game of the year.  Every article I read this morning has all the reports loving the new Oilers and how they played.  I can't stand nut-huggers.  Let's see how the team is 20 games in.  Don't get me wrong, they were great, but it was the first game of the year.

----

Now, did anyone see the KO in last nights' game ?  WOW, SmackIntyre KO'ing Ivanans.  These 2 guys had a doozy in the pre season, and another one last night.  The preseason fight was awesome, I would give the decision to Smack, and last night was crazy, talk about sending a message.

I love MacIntyre's quotes after the game, he said ' We are big guys throwing hard, and aren't playing patty'cake'.

the first clip is the preseason fight, the second is last night's massacre.

DAVE MUSTAINE: SLAYER Has 'The Best Live Show That I've Ever Seen' - Oct. 1, 2010




Before the Jägermeister Music Tour's opening night in Dallas, SLAYER's Kerry King, MEGADETH's Dave Mustaine, and ANTHRAX's Scott Ian chatted backstage with SPIN.com about what's changed over the past two decades, an upcoming U.S. "Big Four" tour with METALLICA, and their "timeless" sounds. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.



SPIN.com: So who puts on the best show [on the tour]?



Mustaine: The best live show that I've ever seen is SLAYER. Their energy is just over the top. We try to play our best. But, as far as the energy and stuff, I've never seen anybody do what Kerry and SLAYER can do.



King: We're all totally different animals. I call MEGADETH nerd metal — not detrimentally, but they're guitar geeks. They blow away the guitar geeks. They're very good at what they do. And then you have guitar geeks come look at us, and they're like, "Yeah, it's kind of heavy." But the intricacies of the leads and stuff? C'mon, that's MEGADETH's specialty. We're just angry and throwing and spitting aggression. All four band (including METALLICA) started from one place and evolved into a four-headed monster. There's four very different things happening.



Mustaine: Same body; four different heads. That's a great way to put it.



SPIN.com: Who's the best guitarist on this tour?



King: It's got to be either Dave or [MEGADETH guitarist Chris] Broderick.



Ian: Yeah, I'd say either Dave or Rob [Caggiano] from our band. From a pure technical standpoint as players, they're insane. It's just like they're using a whole other language that I could never even learn.



Mustaine: Everyone's such a talent. Kerry's right hand is just so fast and articulate. And Scott has all these melodies. Everybody has their own niche. Chris Broderick is a better guitar player than I am because he's learned — I don't know the names of the scales or any of that shit. I'm self-taught, and to a degree that's what makes all us as raw as we are. I remember when Kerry and I played together — Kerry was in MEGADETH for a while when we couldn't secure another guitar player — and just the two of us playing together, it was just so cool. We were from two different worlds, but we were converging on this new style. And I knew that something was going to happen. When Kerry came over and helped us out — those concerts are legendary. Watch them on YouTube. The filming is shit. But the concerts were legendary.



Ian: You've got all these guys with just amazing right hands on this tour. The rhythm capabilities of everyone is second-to-none.

ACE FREHLEY's Memoir Due In April - Oct. 2, 2010




According to Amazon.com, original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley will release "No Regrets", a look back at his "life of sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll" on April 26, 2011 via Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. Gallery plans to publish the title under the VH1 Books imprint.



"No Regrets" is being co-written by New York Times journalist Joe Layden who also authored "The Last Great Fight" about what is considered by many to be the biggest upset in the history of boxing: James "Buster" Douglas' tenth-round knockout win over Mike Tyson in 1990.



Layden recently worked on MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine's autobiography, "Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir".



Jennifer Bergstrom, Vice President, Editor-in-Chief of Gallery Books, said "'No Regrets' is sure to be the next must-read rock-and-roll memoir."



Commented Frehley: "I think Sinatra said it best… 'Regrets I've had a few, but then again, too few to mention.'"



One of the most popular rock guitarists of the 1970s, Frehley became an inspiration to a generation of guitarists with his lead-guitar prowess and atmospheric Les Paul sound.



Frehley performed with KISS from its inception in 1973 until his first departure in 1982 before rejoining KISS in 1996 for a very successful reunion tour. Frehley's second stint lasted until 2002 as Ace went back to being a solo artist again, but the stories and memories still remain from touring in one of rock and roll's most successful acts of all time.



On the red carpet just before his performance with Slash at the at the sixth annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert on May 7 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, Ace Frehley talked about putting his memoir together and how he got help remembering some of his old stories that he might have forgotten.



"It's gonna be memoirs, you know," he told the Artisan News Service.



"I just turned 59, [so] I think it's about time I start getting the stuff out and writing it down on paper before I forget it.



"It's hard for me to remember a lot of the stuff, so what I've been doing is getting together with people I used to work with, and they usually have better memories of situations than myself. Getting together with old bodyguards... They have the best stories about me... stuff I don't remember."

So the Oilers made their final cuts today in preparation for the season opener.  No big suprises here.  At some point in the year, I would love tosee Linus Omark up with the big club.  Not the biggest player, but he has great skill and grit for a smaller guy.  Speaking of smaller guys, I would have kept Liam Reddox over Ryan Jones, but that's just me.

Crop Dusting

Crop Dusting is a surreptitious act that can be performed out of malice or as a means to avoid being identified as the source of a particularly vile-smelling fart. Crop Dusting is executed by precisely synchronizing flatal release with a brisk walk in the vicinity of a group of unsuspecting, distracted individuals, thereby leaving the abhorrent aroma in your wake. By the time the innocent bystanders catch wind of the stench, you are well on your way.
Synonyms:
Carpet Bombing, Napalm, Shock and Awe, The trailer, The Drive-By Dirty Bomb.
