Okay, let's just put it all out on the table here -- the year 2008 has freaking sucked.
From the Rosenthal scandal on down, there hasn't been a dull moment for those of us whose lives tend to center around the good old CJC. And sadly, most of those damn "non-dull" moments have been bad ones.
It only stands to reason that 2008 wouldn't have been a completely disastrous year without a full blown Hurricane coming up the freaking Ship Channel. Consider it Mother Nature's way of putting her Stamp of Approval on a horrible year.
Well, Hurricane Ike, come on down, I suppose. I think we've all been through worse. We ain't scared.
Bring it on.
You guys all be careful out there. I look forward to seeing everybody back at the CJC next week, hopefully none the worse for wear.
And Ike, don't let the door hit you on the ass on your way out.
