Thanksgiving Stuffing
Tampa Bay Lightning Vs Washington Capitals Home Game Review
By Joe Beninati (Capitals Play-by-Play) at CSN - Washington, DC

The Capitals were relentless today. They took command of this game very early against a division rival and never let them get off the mat. It was clinical, it was surgical, and it was a whole lot of fun to describe...

Kanye West Declared "Douche For Life"
By The Complaint Dept. Manager at The Complaint Department

...Folks, this comes as a result of Kanye stopping one of his shows so he can vent about how everyone is out to make him look "stupider" than he actually is(seriously, he used the word "stupider").

He apologizes to Taylor Swift via Twitter(wow, that wreaks of sincerity there) in September then(I guess) does something that I can only imagine as a "takeback" while pissing and moaning on stage...

Mark Webber's 2010 - the journeyman journeys on
Posted at

Nine seasons, four teams, six wins and 159 Grands Prix into his Formula One career, 2010 saw Mark Webber very nearly achieve what many critics said he simply didn't have in him - winning the Formula One world drivers' championship. A few of those critics may still be saying 'told you so' after he ultimately lost out to team mate Sebastian Vettel, but the majority must surely acknowledge that this was the year Webber finally proved his true potential...

Thinking Of You, Freddie Mercury
Posted here by Dan, Jr. of Junior's Eyes

Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara) came into the world on September 5, 1946. He left it on November 24, 1991. As usual, memories of Freddie dominated my thoughts on the anniversary of his death.

Sarah Palin: America's Favorite Girl *snicker*
By The Complaint Dept. Manager at The Complaint Department

...The Alaskan Independence Party had her speak just MONTHS before running for Vice-Pres. These are the same people that want Alaska to succeed from the U.S. In other words, they're traitors!(and so is Rick Perry for that matter). They were founded by a traitor named Joe Vogler who said, "I'm an Alaskan, not an American. I've got no use for America or her damned institutions"...

Swamped In Jersey
Washington Capitals Vs New Jersey Devils Road Game Review
By Joe Beninati (Capitals Play-by-Play) at CSN - Washington, DC

OK, where should we begin with this mess. The Capitals barely resembled themselves tonight. They slept walked through the first period and weren't awakened by any of the Devils first three goals. Just like so many of you, I am guilty of expecting this team to hit the ice every night and dominate their way to victory...
