    why the heck to people think it's a good idea to go up to an apartment/condo building and hit every single buzzer, and wake everyone up at 3am?! i don't care how drunk you are.. it is NOT ok... i don't care if you "forgot your glasses at a party and can't remember which unit you were in" it's still not ok!

I was offered a drive home from a friend so thankfully I didnít have to walk home on a sore ankle with 2 kids. Since my kids are walking students and I donít want them to be scared going to/from school I just told them I hurt my ankle but never told them how it happened. I really hate most people right now!
    What the heck is wrong with people? I'm so sorry that happened to you. That's assault; and while I could think of a couple people that might need a tune up (a quick clip across the ear for my neighbor and her stunning wind chime collection or my other neighbor who baby sits dogs--and even then I would never...). I can't believe that random acts of violence occur. I can imagine you'd feel violated and angry at everyone.

    Okay, okay so watching the Raptors win
    the N.B.A. championship was great fun
    but here's the problem.
    Now a whole generation ,
    of especially the disadvantaged youth,
    will believe, like their American counter-parts,
    that you can bounce a basketball to a successful
    career and untold riches and that school and
    learning are a waste of time.

    Our heroes should really be people with brains not brawn.


    P.S. : as I thought, these hired guns have no loyalty
    to anyone but themselves as what happened to the
    Blue Jays after their M.L.B. championship.

    The moral of the story, enjoy the show regardless
    of who is playing and don't get emotionally involved
    because they certainly don't!!!

    That's my 2 cents, do I feel better?
    No, this just confirms my observation that most
    people today are just looking out for themselves.

    The emotional investment is why you watch. As for players they have to make as much money as possible. 50% goes to taxes and a lot of them end up broke (cars, money, women (kids). I don't fault anyone for moving to a better or happier situation and making more money. In their defense when their careers are done many don't even care about them anymore. We got our title. I am happy. (anti-rant)

    I have ZERO sympathy for ball players. 10 mill a yr & they don't know how to save $$$?Ö too many kids to support?...wear a condom! stop buying BLING!

    after their career why not go back to school? or teach, start a clothing line, MC ball games, get a reality show,

    Valid points. But remember a lot of these guys have huge entourages, limited education (don't finish college) and come from poor backrounds (not always) and have many many people around them with their hands out.

    Point being is we got a title and should be grateful. As parents we should always encourage our kids to get a good education and make something of themselves in their lives. Not everyone is going pro, but if you do make as much money as possible.

    And wear condoms when required. lol *message*

    Most U.S. athletes have "college educations".
    They go to prestige schools on all expense paid 'scholarships',
    taking the place of real potential students
    and come out knowing next to nothing.
    College athletics is the major contributor to the college administration.
    Scams on top of scams.

    it's often the sports teams with huge backers and donations that help fund the sports programs/scholarships and other things around the school.. it's kinda a catch 22

    Those colleges make tons of money off of those atheletes and the players can't even accept a free meal. Modern day slavery. And they graduate not know a thing. Pimp and prostitute 101. Not everyone goes pro.

    Same old rant. Parents setting bad examples for their kids and letting them bud in lines at public places. All you can do is keep calling them out publically and hope they get the point.

    I told me kids nice and loud sorry but sometimes adults act like children. The bad parent got message.
