Grumpy Byfuglien Is Over The Line

The former Atlanta Thrashers are in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They earned the spot with their play, performing well enough to make the current Stanley Cup Champion Kings to eat their dust. Partial credit for the team reaching the playoffs certainly has to go to Dustin Byfuglien skating as a defenseman. Byfuglien plays a heavy game, players entering his ice know they're in a hockey game. It looks like the pressure has finally forced Big Buff to board the crazy train. Neck Breaker The end of the season featured a heated battle for the last Western Conference playoff spots. The Jets were being chased by the current Stanley Cup Champion Kings. On the last day of March, the Jets lost to the President's Trophy winning New York Rangers. Near the end of the second period of that game, the Rangers' J.T. Miller ended up on the ice in front of the Jets net after jumping out of the way of a shot and attempting to jam it under Pavelec's pads while he was falling. Byfuglien … [Read More...]

Life With a Neato Botvac Robot Vacuum

We have a Neato robot vacuum (a BotVac 75 to be precise) named Hazel, and we love her. We live in an under 2000 square foot single story home in Arizona on a dirt road with complete xeriscape (no water) landscaping. We have five kids, four of which have moved out and rarely contribute to the dirt in the house. We have two large dogs that enjoy the freedom of a large back yard and a dog door to go in and out as they wish. If you have dogs, you know that's a lot of daily ins and outs. Both of them shed hair prodigiously. We leave the windows and patio doors open as much as possible, so we get an extra coating of dust from the yard when the wind picks up and the dirt road when somebody … [Read More...]

They’re Baaaaaaack!

Anna and Ronald Lee are back to take another run at recalling Glendale Councilman Gary Sherwood. They filed for a petition serial number (RC-15-01) earlier today. Despite being well funded by the Gila River Indian Community, their previous multi month effort failed miserably. Despite hiring a professional petition circulating company to gather the necessary signatures, they ended up having all of their efforts tossed to the curb by the Glendale City Clerk for dumb errors. Despite having numerous errors in their campaign finance reports, they're back anyway. Maybe this time they learned from their mistakes? Will they hire the same company that let them down so badly the last time? … [Read More...]

Trollfail – Part Three

In Part Two, we mentioned the Arizona Coyotes decided on January 8 they had enough of the Twitter haranguing from @AZSportsHub. I assume there were meetings and phone conversations before the following Tweet was published. FYI #Coyotes fans: There is absolutely no truth to anything @SportsHubAZ reports. But we found his source... pic.twitter.com/MkypqkcH7p — Arizona Coyotes (@ArizonaCoyotes) January 8, 2015 The tweet is so clear that even Puck Daddy picked up on it (click here) with a "smackdown" post despite having also bitten on the Doaner trade story from @SportsHubAZ at least a little bit. You'd think that might be the end of this, certainly the end of @SportsHubAZ … [Read More...]
