2009 kicked the crap out of all of us, now it is our time to get even; Kick the Sh't out of 2009 tonight and tell it not to come back. We welcome in our new Amigo - 2010 with Open Arms, Hugs, Kisses and Champagne. Lots of bad things happened in 2009 and only a few pleasant occurrences.
We'll start with the Good since that won't take much time or Blogging:
The New York Yankees are again at the top of the Baseball World, with winning the World Series. This next episode can be looked at as Good or Bad depending on your point of view, which I guess just about covers any subject. Pittsburgh Steelers won the Super Bowl over Arizona Cardinals. This one hurts to include in the nice/good category as I am an Arizona Cardinal & Kurt Warner Fan. I can find something positive in this as the Arizona Cardinals were playing in the Super Bowl having won the NFC West Conference. Boise State University Broncos again went undefeated in the regular season and again playing in their favorite stadium away from home (University of Phoenix) in the Fiesta Bowl for the second time in four years. They will meet TCU on January 4th, 2010. Chickenfoot Band formed and their eponymous debut album, 'Chickenfoot,' was released on June 4th, 2009, same day as Rico Austin's Birthday. Coincidence? I don't think so, remember Sammy Hagar, MY BAD TEQUILA, Rico Austin and Cabo Wabo are all great friends. If Tequila could Golf, we would be a Foursome! Last Great Memory of 2009 was Chapters 1 - 9 of the novel 'My Bad Tequila' were written and completed, even though the novel was originally started in December of 2007.
Now for the Horrible part of 2009 including deaths of famous persons during the Shit-y Year.
Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin of Jon and Kate Plus Eight separated and divorced, leaving eight children that look alike and only 2 different birth dates between all eight of them in a broken million dollar home wondering what happened to all the camera people that have lived with them for years. Tiger Woods gained 13 + girlfriends but lost a Swedish Model Wife, several endorsements including Gillette, Gatorade, Accenture and AT&T (just today); Buick lucked out as their contract with Tiger had already ended, one irresponsible company - Nike in Beaverton, Oregon is still thinking even though Tiger isn't a good role model for young adults, he can still help them sell tennis shoes, clothing and other paraphernalia as some young males look up to Tiger as a hero by having 13 different girlfriends. C'mon Nike, do the Right Thing! Just Do It and drop a Tiger by the Tail. Charlie Sheen had to spend part of Christmas Eve in an Aspen Jail. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie having trouble; oh, sorry that was going on in 2008 as well.
Sadly lots of deaths, the most sad for me was a five year old boy with cancer who died just days after having his wish of getting Christmas Cards from all over the World. His parents had an early Christmas for him, he passed away in November - Mr. Noah Biorkman, A Brave Boy. RIP is for Noah and all the people below.
Michael Jackson - everyone knows of Michael, his music and The Thriller Video.
Farrah Fawcett - One of the original Charlie's Angels and her famous poster where she is wearing the red one piece swimsuit.
Patrick Swayze - He taught us Dirty Dancing, how to love a Ghost and how to kick butt in Roadhouse.
Bea Arthur - Maude, nothing else to say.
Billy Mays - Pitchman for products, he could sell us anything.
Brittany Murphy - Actress that died way to soon, we still don't have the full story.
David Carradine - Kung Fu and Kill Bill is what he will be remembered for.
Dom DeLuise - Crazy Man, loved his laugh and seeing him in Cannonball Run; was a Guest on the Dean Martin Variety Show.
Ed McMahon - most famous man for doing almost nothing, great accomplishment. Laughed at all of Johnny Carson's jokes and later the spokesperson for Reader's Digest Sweepstakes. Strange his dedication took two lines.
Jett Travolta - Oldest Son of actor John Travolta and actress Kelly Preston.
Karl Malden - Always around when someone's American Express Card was stolen or missing. Makes me wonder, hmmm?
Ricardo Montalban - Fantasy Island and his little buddy calling him "Boss" and yelling "The plane, the plane."
Soupy Sales - The face that was hit with 20,000 pies.
Ted Kennedy - One of the last surviving members of the Joseph Kennedy Clan, made a life of Politics.
Walter Cronkite - He was everywhere, reporting as a True Journalist. RIP to Walter and all before him.
Tequila Time = Don Julio 1942, a special year and a special Tequila; I have never met an individual that did not like the taste of this true Tequila.
