There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune



And so it begins. . .

Well, they're about to drop the puck in Torino and I'm going to have to watch this damn game on Rai Due because 1) Eurosport is a bunch of pansies and 2) apparently the CBC doesn't broadcast in Turkey. Right now, I have Canada's second national anthem looping in my head like an ohrwurm. I have my jersey, a couple of beers and a bag of doritos. Game on.


Bonus Rant*:
Let me take this time to tell you what I think of the IOC - a body filled with more corrupt morons than even the United Nations. Unbelievably, in this day and age - 2006, mind you - these idiots have structured their contracts so that you can't get streaming audio on the internet, so that there is no possible way for me to follow tomorrow's game against Germany. It's like they sit around a table saying "How can we make our product less accessible to the fans?" I mean, I know the body is run by a Belgian, but come on! What a bunch of assholes. I hate them so much.

Luddites.

*I swear I am sober as I write this. I haven't even cracked one open yet. Trust me, there would have been at least one or two f-bombs if I had gotten into the beer.

About me

  • I'm Sunset Shazz
  • Living the dream in Istanbul, Turkey
  • I grew up in the hardscrabble streets of suburban Ottawa, Ontario, committing petty crime, insulting the elderly - basically the classic misspent youth. When I was 19, I moved to West Philly, where I put myself through the Wharton School by dealing crack and hustling. After stints in Paris and London, I eventually graduated and moved to San Francisco, where I put in eight years hard labor working for The Man. But now I pop bottles with models, deciding cracked crab or lobster - who says mobsters don't prosper?
