Chad Johnson says he's going to report.
Duh. He's got some public relation work to do. But then again, maybe not. He clearly pissed off nearly all of his fan base in Cincinnati, so if he actually cared about the fans, he may be forced to do some kissing up to the Cincinnati faithful.
My theory is that he does not care about the fan base here, and it's pretty obvious in how he has acted the last year or so. The Bengals called his financial bluff, and now he has no choice but to report to camp.
Fines from $8,000 to $14,000 daily don't help when you can't even pay taxes on your house at the present time.
All about the money. Period.
But hey, why not?
Actually, I don't have anything against guys playing for money, but it really turns me off when they pretend that it's their teammates' and community's support they care about once the contract is signed.
By the way, I have a feeling that Mark Curnutte sees a lot more "stuff" that us regular, non-reporters ever see when it comes to those affiliated with the Cincinnati Bengals. I have a feeling that Mark Curnutte is a lot nicer to certain individuals than what they may deserve. Just a hunch...

In a case that has befuddled police officials, a Columbus man has been charged with crawling under a table at a library on University of Cincinnati’s campus, spraying a substance from a syringe on a woman’s shoes and then photographing them.
Wow. Not sure what to say about this. Read the Enquirer article here.

I lived on the west side for the invasion in 2004, since then, we've moved east. Now I get another shot at cicada combat.

I like this feature of blogging. I think it's mainly an ego trip, but nonetheless, is interesting to me. I like posting on consecutive days and watching the numbers of visitors to my blog go up for a couple of days. I only wish I could know who actually reads this blog.
It's still a funny phenomenon to me, that there are random people out there that I've never met and for some reason are reading my random thoughts about random topics. Feel free to give me a shout out sometime if you want. I would love to see who you mystery people are.
So here you go random people, another post about things I think are interesting.

"Why do we give pro athletes credit for not getting in trouble with the cops? Is the bar that low now? Does your boss ever say to you, "Great job, you havent been arrested lately?''..."

...the grid could also provide the kind of power needed to transmit holographic images; allow instant online gaming with hundreds of thousands of players; and offer high-definition video telephony for the price of a local call.
Think about it, if we have a Grid we will save big time on gas, reduce emissions, and finally rid our city of malaria.
Come on, scrap the street car and vote for the Grid!!!

Reds pitcher rookie pitcher, Johnny Cueto threw 10 strikeouts and 0 walks in his first game as a MLBer.
Even Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker was pretty excited, as seen here in an excerpt from the article.
"I'm giddy inside," Baker said. "I'm excited to hear the guys on the bench talk. They haven't seen this in a long time. As a matter of fact, they haven't ever seen it."
A nice positive and happy story - about the Reds - to wash down some of the negative Bengals coverage.

Come and see This Holiday Life. These guys are some good friends of mine from college. Go Miami Redhawk-skins!!
They put on a pretty good show and have toured with Switchfoot some out west, so if I were to put them into a music category, it would be the one Switchfoot is in. Whatever that may be.
THL is rarely in Cincinnati since they're based in San Diego now, but they're making a run through the heartland this week and next.
Now, they are playing at Dirty Jack's, which to be honest, sounds a little bit intimidating to this EastSider, but that's OK, I'll brave the unknown to see these guys.
Check out their music and come see them. http://www.thisholidaylife.com/
They will be playing Sunday night at 9:00 p.m.
Click here for venue information: Dirty Jack's

Chad Johnson will play in his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl game.
Reached on his cell phone this afternoon, Johnson hung up when The Enquirer identified itself seeking comment on the honor. He has not spoken to the Cincinnati-based media since October.
The Bengals would have about $8 million in dead money on their salary cap in 2008 if they traded or released wide receiver Chad Johnson.
After his first Pro Bowl practice Thursday in Hawaii, Bengals wide receiver allegedly shoved an NFL public relations official.
Johnson also went on NFL Network, the league-owned TV station, and complained about the lack of support shown him by the Bengals and his teammates.

Worked with Ron, some kids from Napolean High School, and some students from Kings. I believe Ron is a full-time worker with OTRCH.
I haven't done much volunteer work recently. In fact, it's probably been years. It felt good getting up, heading down there, and just doing some manual labor to help out that organization, and indirectly, a family that may be having a tough time financially.
We took some pics and shot some video for the students' community service requirements. More to follow later. (Isn't a volunteer requirement a bit of an oxymoron?!?)
The last time I worked with this organization it wasn't this organization. In fact it was RESTOC.

There were some cool cars in that auto show too... I wasn't just impressed by the People Mover.

I wonder about something though... where is my listing? How is the author and editor of Now not mentioned? Interesting. Maybe I'm a top 150? Maybe I was accidentally left off. An inadvertent omission.
