90210, College Football, and Something For the Employed….

3 09 2008

Well, first things first.

This is for my friends at work. I know sometimes your days get boring, but what better way to brighten your day than to play some rock bandish games.

Rock Band
Get to Rockin my friends!

As many of you may know, college football has started this past weekend. I for one, LOVE college football. My general fall schedule consists of having soccer practice every Saturday morning at 8 am. From there I usually head home and find a comfortable spot on the couch. Then I turn on college football for the next 8-10 hours.

Generally I get up for bathroom breaks and food. People call and text to do stuff during college football. If they’re lucky I answer the phone. I will respond to a lot of texts cause that’s my thing. Sometimes even updating my friends on the shitty team they have. i.e University of Washington this past weekend.

With that being said, here is my unofficial College Football Poll.
#1
After watching their game this weekend I’m convinced they are completely legit. Yowzers that defense is fast.
#2
They play in a “pretty tough” conference. So that says something. If they win out, they’ll be in the National Championship game. Plus they got a new UGA.
#3
Ever since Tim Tebow was on Two-A-Days on MTV I knew he was destined to do great things. Plus you can’t underestimate a Heisman winning quarterback that spends his Spring Break in the Philippines instead of Cancun.
#4
In case you haven’t heard, Chase Daniels is kinda good.
#5
Here’s the thing. I had to pick a team that many people aren’t. Think about this. BYU plays in probably one of the weakest leagues in the nation. Max Hall dropped almost 500 yards on N. Iowa this past weekend and if they win out, that’s undefeated and a garunteed top 5 finish. Which may send you to a bowl game to face the likes of Georgia which may turn out ok…. Ask Hawaii.

With all this being said, University of Oregon is my team of all teams. I root for them over all other teams. Go Ducks. And Jake Locker should stick to baseball.

So I’m pretty sure this may be what some people are waiting for…..

I finally caught the new 90210….

AND OH LORD I LOVE IT!!!!!

First things first… HOW EFFING HOT ARE THE NEW GIRLS! I mean seriously. Back in the day, I loved me some West Beverly drama, but there was only one girl that stood out. And that my friends was obviously Kelly Taylor. So my first job is to pick my favorite girl. I started out with thinking that I was going to fall for Naomi. I first saw Naomi when she was on Nip/Tuck playing Eden. If anyone wants to do some YouTube”ing” and look up Eden on Nip/Tuck you’ll know why.

However, I’m really kinda digging Annie. I’m not sure what it is. But for the first two episodes, Annie is my leader for hot girl of the show.

Speaking of hot, I couldn’t help but find Erin Silver kinda hot. Which actually left me with a little icky feeling. You see, for some rookies to 90210, Erin Silver came as a result of David Silver’s dad Kelly Taylor’s mom doing the nasty in Mr. Silvers dentist chair. Oh wait, that was a dental assistant. So I was around when little Erin Silver was born. I was around when little Erin Silver was used as the excuse for Kelly to stay home for the summer. I was around when little Erin Silver was the excuse for Dylan McKay to hang out with Kelly Taylor while Brenda was off galavanting around Europe.

Basically I’ve seen Erin Silver grow up… and OH MY has she grown up! Icky feeling again…

I like the story line of the new family coming from Kansas with the adopted black son. I mean heaven forbid we actually have an African American family living in Beverly Hills. Of course we all know that African Americans do not attend West Beverly high, unless their dad’s a janitor at WBHS and they’re on academic scholarship and Brandon accuses said African American student of only being there to play basketball. (Which reminds us people that stereotyping is bad. Which reminds me, I do miss the social messages that the old 90210 used to give us.) No, people, African American students go to Crenshaw and only appear at WBHS when they’re trying to squash a race beef and get the big game going on Friday.

I’m not going to lie. The new 90210 was a bit over the top. But I kinda enjoyed it. The bj in the parking lot was pretty much awesome. But I have to ask myself, who are these girls, and where were they when I went to high school.

I enjoyed seeing Kelly Taylor back on 90210. Not going to lie, she looks good. In fact one of my favorite parts was in the office and having her say “yowzers.” I don’t know about you, but I could hear Ms. Taylor say that ALL DAY! Yowzers!

I didn’t like the introduction of Lacrosse to WBHS. As long time fans of 90210 will all know sports are ONLY to be used for these few cases….
#1. The students are all building a parade float. Only to have it be burned down.
#2. WBHS has some “big game” coming up. (usually to be followed by racial tension or floats burning down.)
#3. The track team decides to do Steriods.
#4. One of the track guys decides to be gay.

This friends is what sports are for on 90210. Please stick to the above guidelines for future episodes.

Overall, I feel as if the new 90210 can carry on. I enjoyed it greatly. It’s now set on my TiVo and I’ll be eager to watch it every week. For those of you with any feedback, please hit me up…

“But I have to ask myself, who are these girls, and where were they when I went to high school.”

…They went to J-High. Myself not included in that catagory of sluts, but they existed.

Wait for my 90210 blog…it’s coming.

Had I known this was happening at J-High, I totally would have made my parents pay the tuition.

I miss out on everything.

Here’s the reason you are drawn to Annie: Anne Hathaway.

She looks some what like her, sounds like her and generally they could be sisters in the mannerism department.

Your non-sports loving friends (male of female) don’t give you grief over your fall routine, do they? When September rolls around and I tell my friends that I won’t be available on Sundays and Saturdays are negotiable, my male friends are amused–even delighted. A few of my female friends are less understanding (sorry, can’t Tivo or DV-R a game…literally cannot).

Go Ducks. And Jake Locker should stick to baseball.

Intentional pun?

unless their dad’s a janitor at WBHS and they’re on academic scholarship and Brandon accuses said African American student of only being there to play basketball.

I remember that episode! Very nice 90210 commentary. I was in fourth grade (1990-1991) when I started watching the original. I didn’t see the new one’s pilot. My curiosity is somewhat piqued now.

See, thats why I wasn’t allowed to watch the original 90210, my mom thought it was too “adult” and she probably didnt want me exposed to all of those sterotypes about black folk. *shaking my head* Reminds me of me and my friends at SC who all used to say “YES I am black and attend USC, and NO i’m not on an athletic scholarship”….. Haters

Speaking of SC…Fight the HELL ON!!!!

E,

#1. Fight on.

#2. If I didn’t have 90210 as a youth, I’m not sure we would have been friends. I mean where else was I to learn that “black folk” were not all gang bangers and athletes.

what can I say. Everything I know, I learned from 90210.

Erin is the dark haired girl that has the blog site… see we already have something in common!

Did you learn more from 90210 the high school years? Or did the college years (sans Brenda) yield any useful information?

Never drink alcohol on an empty stomach or else you become the good girl gone “how unfortunate,” who can only be redeemed with the entire student body (?) chanting that you graduate. Demanding that you graduate.

Never wear a mermaid costume to a Halloween party.

Channel the spirit of a Lucille Ball-esque waitress if necessary…just to get through the shift without dropping dishes and mixing up orders.

Did you learn anything from Melrose Place? or Models Inc?

Ahhh, the wanna-be actress that chickened out and didn’t go on the audition?

That’s wack cause she was blonde as a little girl on the original 90210. C’mon producers, keep it consistent!!
