If you will notice, Friday October 11th game against SMU is Friday Night Lights at Raymond Field.. that has not been any nighttime games at Raymond Field in a few yrs. Also if you go back earlier in the schedule you will see that the Axemen will be taking on Laval in Wolfville/ WolfVegas.. a regular season game.. interleague play against the team w/ the 5 MILLION dollar budget and has spring training in Florida.. i won't say too much.. but sometimes i must wonder about even playing field and i wish Axemen Football had a crazy budget like that.. sometimes it takes the right organization/ group/ person w/ deep pockets to come along... esp when we want championships...

I also noticed in the Chronicle Herald today that the Uteck Bowl is set to hit the road.. esp after the disaster in Moncton and instead of returning to the decaying Huskie Stadium, the Bowl will be offered to the winner of the AUS to take on their opponent from the Quebec Conference (More than likely it will be Laval) Excuse me for offering my opinion on the topic, but i think this is the right thing to do.. why have it at Huskie Stadium every year? Make it an extra incentive to win for the teams in the AUS.. if you win.. you get national coverage in your town.. even though you will get those TSN announcers who screw up everyone's name, you get the Uteck Bowl.. i said it yrs ago.. why have a host city? Give it to those who deserve it.. the yr Moncton had it stunk because Moncton has no AUS football team, thus no attachment to the game.. no personal reason to go watch two strange teams.. and it was on a Friday instead of a Saturday.. students couldn't get away from classes to make it up in time.. dummy dummy dummy decisions.. Anyways let the best team win...

Perhaps the "Three-peat" for the Axemen... perhaps...

Anyways folks rejoice and let the AUS football season start on September 6th!

Have a good one folks...

When i Was Young...

Was looking around the ol internet tonight and saw this post on Facebook.. thought i would re-post because its pretty true about today's youngins....

Hilarious! Growing up without a cell phone

If you are 36, or older, you might think this is hilarious!

When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning.... Uphill... Barefoot... BOTH ways...yadda, yadda, yadda

And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on my kids about how hard I had it and how easy they've got it!

But now that I'm over the ripe old age of forty, I can't help but look around and notice the youth of today. You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a damn Utopia! And I hate to say it, but you kids today, you don't know how good you've got it!

1) I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have the Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!!

2) There was no email!! We had to actually write somebody a letter - with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox, and it would take like a week to get there! Stamps were 10 cents!

3) Child Protective Services didn't care if our parents beat us. As a matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick our ass! Nowhere was safe!

4) There were no MP3's or Napsters or iTunes! If you wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself!

5) Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio, and the DJ would usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up! There were no CD players! We had tape decks in our car. We'd play our favorite tape and "eject" it when finished, and then the tape would come undone rendering it useless. Cause, hey, that's how we rolled, Baby! Dig?

6) We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called, they got a busy signal, that's it!

7) There weren't any freakin' cell phones either. If you left the house, you just didn't make a damn call or receive one. You actually had to be out of touch with your "friends". OH MY GOSH !!! Think of the horror... not being in touch with someone 24/7!!! And then there's TEXTING. Yeah, right. Please! You kids have no idea how annoying you are.

8) And we didn't have fancy Caller ID either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your parents, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer, the collection agent... you just didn't know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!

9) We didn't have any fancy PlayStation or Xbox video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600! With games like 'Space Invaders' and 'Asteroids'. Your screen guy was a little square! You actually had to use your imagination!!! And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen.. Forever! And you could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died! Just like LIFE!

10) You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on! You were screwed when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your ass and walk over to the TV to change the channel!!! NO REMOTES!!! Oh, no, what's the world coming to?!?!

11) There was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying? We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons.. for Scooby Doo, you spoiled little rat-bastards!

12) And we didn't have microwaves. If we wanted to heat something up, we had to use the stove! Imagine that!

13) And our parents told us to stay outside and play..and play. all day long. Oh, no, no electronics to soothe and comfort. And if you came back inside... you were doing chores!

And car seats - oh, please! Mom threw you in the back seat and you hung on. If you were lucky, you got the "safety arm" across the chest at the last moment if she had to stop suddenly, and if your head hit the dashboard, well that was your fault for calling "shot gun" in the first place!

See! That's exactly what I'm talking about! You kids today have got it too easy. You're spoiled rotten! You guys wouldn't have lasted five minutes back in 1970 or any time before!

The Over 40 Crowd

Have a good one folks!
