Nintendo has had weak showings in the past at E3 but this year they came out swinging and ready to fight. Wow, was I impressed with some of the titles that I saw. Overall, I am excited about a lot of games coming out within the next year!! Below the cute are just a FEW of the games that Nintendo debuted and that I am excited about.

This was definitely a hard fought game on both sides. Kudos to Gerrard for getting the early goal for England. But that was a tough defensive breakdown for the US and Howard was on the crap on of it. Defense shouldn't have been out of position. But oh man did Howard step up strong in this match up! Best Goaltender showing up the cup thus far. England came in strong as expected but the US showed that they were up to the challenge. Clint Dempsey's goal may have been lucky been the fact comes down to sometimes that's what it takes. Green screwed up and let Dempsey's shot skip over his hands and he is going to have to accept that 1) that could be the biggest blunder of his career and 2) lucky or not, he got scored on by the US.

There were definitely moments of brilliance for the US; Donovan's great passing, Altidore showing his speed and power getting past the English defense (damn post), the US looking to use Findley's speed, Howard's great showing in the net, ect. The US showed up and played hard.

Call it luck. Call it whatever you want. I call it a tie against a great team and a point in our group.

*Also note that the US has never won a game in the World Cup where the other team has scored first. So them coming back to tie is a good start to breaking that streak.

Its that time again (finally!) and the FIFA World Cup has arrived!

USA is in group C and drew matches from England, Slovania, and Algeria. The latter two should be wins. Slovania has only entered the cup in 2002 and didnt make it out of the first round and Algeria has only been in the cup in 1982 & 1986 and didnt make it out of the first round either time. England on the otherhand is going to be a tough fight. USA has defeated England before in 1950 World Cup (coincidentally wearing jerseys similar to their current ones). Can the Yanks bring down the Three Lions again? The US and England are set to square off tomorrow, Saturday, at 2:30pm on ABC.

On Tuesday my car decided to go all crazy on me. Start shaking and going nuts. Brought it in to Firestone and apparently the wiring in my ignition was deteriorating and one of the engines cylinders wasnt working so i was only running on 5 instead of 6 and that cause spark plugs to short out or something. to fix and replace everything... $700. Son of a B*tch!!!! That pisses me off. But it had to be fixed or the engine would have literally fell apart. ugh.

I went to take my re-certification for both CPR and AED yesterday. The class went by really quick given that there was only 8 of us so that was really nice. And in the end I passed both the practical and written sections of both tests. so I was happy about that.
Then I realized I have been a certified lifeguard (with CPR and AED) for 12 years. Wow. since i was 15. Thats awesome.

The NHL Finals are done and the Chicago Blackhawks have won the Stanely Cup!! WOOOOOOOO. I would like to say F U to the NHL for allowing the refs in the series to blatantly side with the Flyers whenever they played in Philly. wtf is that about. sheesh. I would also like to take a moment to congratulate Marion Hossa for winning the cup! You finally did it buddy! YAY!
Now who wants to take a road trip to Buffalo when Kane brings the cup there??

Old Jersey that i have had since like Jr. High. Its from back when Starter was making the NHL jerseys and the Western Conference still had their purple logo. Ha.

So I am officially done on July 13th when my summer class is over but I walked in my graduation ceremony for my Masters at St. Joseph's College. For those who may not know I am getting my Masters in 'Literacy and Cognition'. So hopefully that will make my resume look a lil better for getting my own elementary class to teach.
