    Arggghhh!!!!!!!!!!!! Re: NY Rangers hockey: My team SUCKS! The last time they were any good was when they had a former Penguin, Yagr, on their team, but that year the management kept putting the worst goalie ever, Kevin Weekes, in the net despite having an Olympic Gold medalist goalie, Lundquist, on hand.  And my friends wonder why I don’t watch the games much any more, it is just too painful!

    I feel better getting that off my chest. I hate when my team loses, but they lose a LOT, and the Penguins are simply badass. I’ll cheer for them vs anyone but my pitiful NY Rangers.

    Anyway, thanks for another great news roundup, Wombat, I don’t know how you do it but you do it better than anyone!

    Re: Megaupload.  Celebrities are realizing that they don’t make money from album sales so they may as well give away songs.

    Megaupload was establishing its own label so this is part 2 in the RIAA’s war against them.

    I owe it all to Stacy. He came up with the original plan, and I’m just executing it as best I can.
