Well, the results are in… and Ontario is stuck with a Progressive Conservative majority government and now we have to deal with that blowhard bully PC leader Doug Ford for at least the next four years:( Seriously, the Liberal Party was so despised/hated that the PC’s could have run a monkey as their leader and still won. They didn’t even have a political platform… all the dude had to do was smile and not hit anyone on camera. What this means is that our kids will get their sex education programming in the school playground, based on what Johnny saw on the internet the night before. I don’t think Doug Ford is as bad as Donald Trump, but I certainly hope his lies and Twitter feeds are at least as ridiculous as the President of the United States… it’s quite entertaining! Let’s not forget that Doug’s crack smoking brother, and former Mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford actually made it onto national TV when he went on Jimmy Kimmel twice! What really bugs me is that the despised Liberal government received 1 million votes and won only 7 seats in the legislature… and the PC’s received 2 million votes and won 73 seats! There is something terribly wrong with our “democratic” system.
…. But this is not a politics blog, so we’ll move on…
In other news my beloved Las Vegas Golden Knights (whom I’ve been following as a loyal fan since their inception) lost the Stanley Cup finals in only five games to the Washington Capitals. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m not a big fan of hockey… and certainly not the National Hockey League. How great would it have been to have the Golden Knights win the coveted trophy in their first year of existence?!!! This would really be a slight to Toronto Maple Leaf fans which are the worst fans in the world… and I’m a Buffalo Bills fan! Why Leafs fans still support such a terrible team for decades and yet still pay hundreds… if not thousands to secure tickets to a game is just insane and stupid!
My second favorite sport to watch is basketball, but I must say that I’m glad that the National Basketball Association’s season is over. What a disappointment it was… the Golden State Warriors won yet again… like anyone didn’t see that happening again! The last four years has seen the same two teams in the NBA finals and thus I don’t even know why any team even bothers to play anymore?! The only interesting games in this years play-offs was between Golden State and Houston… at least the Rockets gave those miserable Warriors a run for their money!
… But this isn’t a sports blog either so we’ll move on…
No Nintendo news today unfortunately so we’ll jump to everybody’s second favorite part of this blog…
SEGA Corner: I was thinking the other day about something that has confused me for the past two decades. When I was a teenager, I was really really good at Thunder Force 2 & 3 games on the Sega Genesis. While part 3 wasn’t nearly as hard as part 2 for the simple reason that you only lost the weapon you were currently using when you got blown out of the air by the Orn Empire… where as you lost every weapon in part 2 when the same thing happened. Never-the-less I could handily beat both games… part 3 with one ship! All this talent and yet I could still not get a single actual date with any girl I was attracted to in high school! I always landed in the dreaded “friend zone”. And yet I was super good looking and was a runner up for both the Backstreet Boys and N’SYNC!
Look at this sexy stud! The girls at my school must have all been crazy to pass me up! Did I mention I could complete Thunder Force 3 with one ship?! This is surely one of the world’s biggest mysteries.
Things are looking up though… I’m hoping the next blog will have me acquiring two rare NES game titles!
Until next time,
