Movies I’d Wish I’ve Seen

One would think since I’ve done it all…I would have seen it all. I miss a few things….:) Through out all my adventures and even the movie bar in Fuji, Japan you would have thought I would have at least seen the most popular or some of the classic movies of all time. I’ve seen a lot and of course one would not miss the likes of Animal House, Caddyshack, Smokey and the Bandit…but there are some great classics that I’ve missed;

The list would be this…in no peticular <<<(hey even spell check can’t spell that word)

The Big Lebowski

Reservoir Dogs

Rushmore

Blazing Saddles

The God Father (all)

Blade Runner

Fight Club

Now I know what you’re thinking….how have I not seen these classics?  Well long story short…I had a better offer on the table…:) now some of these, I started to watch or watched part of it etc, but for some reason or the other never finished. there’s probably a few others but that’s all I could think of at the moment.

From A Father A Fan A Booster What I See From The Cheap Seats

I’m in the 3rd year of my daughter Danielle’s volleyball career at Fremont Ross High School. Dani is a senior now. I was nervous when Dani changed school from St Joe to the much bigger Fremont Ross. I was worried she wouldn’t make the team with so many girls competing. She Did! She made the team earned a spot and forged friendships.

I’ve gotten involved with the team as a booster and the past two years helped organize the volleyball booster program. I can say that doing this has brought me much enjoyment. By getting involved I’ve been able to help make our last two years more enjoyable for myself and hopefully the other parents and players too. The parents of these young girls have been some of the best people I’ve met. I don’t think I’ve ever been involved in something that all the parents participate and get along as much a we do. My hats off to you all.

The girls of the Volleyball Team are some of the best athletes I’ve seen compete in a high school sport. These girls work hard! The level of play that I’ve witness  is staggering. Fremont now competes in the newly formed Three Rivers Athletic Conference (TRAC). Most of the teams we compete against are from bigger schools and the girls are much taller and have more experience playing at this level. Even though we are out matched in most of these games our girls play their hearts out. They have fun and they get along with one another. I’ve known most of these girls for three years now….they are as much fun to watch as I am sure to coach….A great bunch of girls! I look forward to every game….

Recently the Fremont News Messenger wasn’t too kind to our girls in an article written by one of their sports writers. http://www.thenews-messenger.com/article/20110916/HSSPORTS/109160322/Ross-can-t-keep-up-Toledo-Central-Catholic They published a report about our game with Toledo Central Catholic (TCC). We lost that game in 3 straight sets and the reporter couldn’t find any positives in the game for Ross. So I thought I’d report about what I saw from the stands.

TCC coming off a 2010 year which saw their only tournament loss to Toledo St. Ursula (the state champion) was a much bigger team with season skilled players at every position. The expectation of most was that Fremont believe they could win and  play a tough game…not to give up or get down. That is exactly what they did. When most of TCC front line towered above Mekenzie Schneider our 5’5″ Senior Captain, she kept swinging she kept going up to block she kept digging…and she played a great game. Allison Ackerman our tallest player at 6 Feet and a sophomore had one of the best games this year. She recorded numerous serving aces as well as several blocks and even a few kills. The defensive players for Ross (Danielle Honaker, MeKenzie Gallagher) had their hands full from the trio of six-foot somethings in the TCC front row, and they still managed to ring up season high digs each. Melanie Edris kept attacking the ball at every chance. Her jump serves seemed to give TCC trouble. Cassie Wolesagel kept blocking kill after kill. Olivia Miller kept attacking the ball every time it was fed to her. Molly Mosser’s serves where some of the strongest I’ve seen from a player that’s listed at 5’4″. After the game the crowd seemed pleased they had seen a great match and our girls played their hearts out. There were numerous people from both sides telling me our girls played a great game.  The TCC parents and players ad coaching staff displayed great sportsmanship. The TC players played a great game and certainly didn’t show any signs that they skipped a beat from last years team. My hats off to all of them.

I’m only saddened by the fact that our hometown news paper couldn’t see or didn’t take the time to see the positives in this game. I know what they reported was factual, it’s just disheartening that they couldn’t list some positives about our young girls. After all, this was a David and Goliath type of game and they are a hometown news paper!

I have a feeling I’m going to be a fan of Fremont Ross Volleyball for a while to come. Keep playing tough keep swinging!

Good Luck!

California Dreaming II

California, I miss you so much! there’s not a day goes by that I don’t think about you to think what could have been. You made me feel alive free. Now all I do is feel like I’m missing something….I wish I didn’t feel this way, I wish I didn’t think about you I wish I could sleep through the night without you. I fall asleep thinking of you and wake in a sweat I the middle of the night with your image in my mind. When will I be free of you? When will I not remember you? When will I not want you again?

My fear is that this my love for you will never go away and I fear for the day it does, for I will be left without.

I Speak English, Animal House, Caddyshack, Smoky and The Bandit and The Occasional Hank Moody

That’s right…I have many languages. I love movie quotes, its fun to imput them into everyday conversations. I love when someone isn’t expecting it and you answer with a question with a movie quote. Sometimes they get it, sometimes they just look at you funny…that makes me laugh even more. I think  that’s a sign of a great movie.. a classic…when the quote becomes everyday talk. When you say it without knowing or don’t having to think about it.

The other day I stopped in at my mom’s and she said…glad you could come…me…cut the crap and give me a drink (Animal House). She…you want anything to eat…me…give me a Diablo Sandwich and a Dr. Pepper and make it quick, I’m in a god-damned hurry. (Smokey and The Bandit)

To my favorite Bartender…Ed…everytime he gives me another beer…Thank you Sir, may I have another (Animal House)

This summer I was at my Grama’s house and she asked me if I wanted something to drink…me…How about a Fresca…(Caddyshack)

Talking to my brother-in-law about his new boat…me…my dingy is bigger than your whole boat (Caddyshack) Cut the crap give me a drink (Animal House)…love it when I can work two lines in at the same time 🙂

My Step-Mom asking me how my party went last night…me…Its not that we took a few liberties with some of our female guests…we did! (Animal House)

A friend of mines wife trying to hook me up with her girlfriend…me…I would be willing to trade good looks for a certain morally-casual attitude (Animal House)

When someone…anyone, anyone…Bueller, anyone 🙂 ask me if I have a pool…me..pool and a pond…pond be good for you (Caddyshack)

Whatever your favorite movie, I’m sure there are movie quotes that live on…here are a few more that just make me laugh every time I hear them…

Not you Fat Jesus

 

 

 

You can’t snort coke off a hookers ass and not wonder about her hopes and dreams

 

And over here we have Clayton, Sydney, Jugdish, Mohammet, and Lonny

The God Damn German’s got nothing to do with it

Last time I saw a mouth like that it had a hook in it

So I got that going for me…and that’s nice

You looking for a Dick Punch

Sweet Baby Jesus Hanks going to hell

 

When you buy a hat like that, it should come with a free bowl of soup

Seven years of college down the drain, I might as well join the fucking peace corps

 

 

 

Here are some Famous movie quotes that are used in everyday life;

The Godfather; I’ll make him an offer he can’t refuse; It’s nothing personal. Strictly business; Keep your friends close but keep your enemies closer; Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

I’ll be back. – The Terminator

You can’t handle the truth! – A Few Good Men

Here’s Johnny! – The Shining

But why is the rum gone? – Pirates of the Carribean

If I’m not back in five minutes, just wait longer! – Ace Ventura

This could go on and on…whats Your favorite quote
