I'm back up and running after a 9 day blackout here in the greater Hartford area.
Four line crews came barreling in around 8pm Sunday night (our power went out the previous Saturday at 11:45pm) looking to do some work - FINALLY!! Twenty minutes later, power (and order) was restored. They sent two buckets up the pole, took out a fuse, put in a new one, pushed it into place and POW - power.
I went inside and did a little dance. You think having power for a day or two sucks, ha. You have no idea. We stayed at 7 different places over the course of the blackout. SEVEN! Talk about a whirlwind.
What turned out to be the biggest story since power has been restored? Well I'll tell you Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian are thrilled it ain't them - it's a sex scandal at Penn State.
Joe Paterno is out. The athletic director is out. The president is out. What a shitstorm this whole thing is and it totally tarnished a brilliant coaching career by a man with 409 victories - more than anyone else in the history of college football? (besides John Gagliardi).
Truth be told, he didn't say something eleven years ago - which is dispicable a damn shame. He could have ended this whole thing back then but chose not to - terrible judgement on his part.
Jerry Sandusky is a piece of shit and should rot in hell (or jail) for the rest of his life. Joe Paterno - he'll live in his own jail for the rest of his life knowing he could have done something but didn't.
I cannot believe this story. It has nothing to do with sports and for those of you trying to make it a sports story are mistaken - this is a sick and twisted sex scandal created by a man in a power position - assistant football coach for the Penn State Nittany Lions. He was often seen with 10- or 11-year-olds at bowl games, camps, practices - and no one saw any issues with this? Oh that's right, he had his "Second Mile" program - basically a recruiting tool to feed his child-sex habit. I am going to puke talking about this anymore, so I am done.
Just like Penn State football and Joe Paterno's reputation.
They're shredding trees outside making me think that this nap I just put Nolan down for is going to be short lived.
