Well congratulations Jack Thompson you are this week’s winner of the JK Says Biggest Idiot Ever award!

The crazy and probably insane lawyer claims he is dipicted in GTA IV and is threatening to sue Rockstar if “he” isn’t removed from the game.

Here’s the article from GamePolitics.com

Jack┬áThompson <— Insert Pee-Wee Herman’s laugh right about here.

It’s been awhile, and I’ve received pressure from people to post something, so here goes:

Moving to Minnesota:
In case you somehow haven’t heard, we are moving to Minneapolis, Minnesota in mid October. My wife Angel got yet another job promotion and we couldn’t be happier. So with my vacation and moving, I’ll be missing valuable blogging time among gaming time. I’ll get over it and hopefully you will too. It’s something that is very exciting for us.

Notre Dame:
What the hell just happened? Are the Irish seriously getting progressively worse? Anyone with half a brain KNEW Notre Dame was going to have a bad season. The question to start was whether they could beat Georgia Tech. Obviously after 20 plays, only one of which was a pass by Demetrius Quitter Jones, the answer was no. They looked about right against Penn State, but looked like a decent high school team against a very good Michigan team.

I guess the question should be Charlie Weis. I thought he was an offensive genius? Now I’m not calling for his head or anything, I mean I’m a guy who thought Tyrone Willingham being fired was completely wrong, but how does Weis end up with -14 yards rushing on the season? Congratulations, that’s dead last in the NCAA FBS. Kind of hard to shed some confidence on a 19 year old quarterback, when’s he constantly running in reverse.

Let’s be honest, College Football IS better when Notre Dame is good. It’s better when ALL the traditionally great teams are having a good year, especially with that fat NBC contract. I’m betting the peacock is VERY happy about this season thus far. Hopefully they’ll avoid that 0-8 start but looking at the schedule, it’s not likely. For those of you basking in the (future) glory of beating the Domers, good for you, you beat a high school team..Congratulations.

Chicago Cubs:

Well they are still holding onto the worst division in baseball at the moment. The road to the playoffs still isn’t easy as they battle the Reds this week as well as the final series of the season. Cincy has played very well against the Cubs this year and have really played spoiler in the NL central as they’ve beaten the Brewers when it matters as well.

It’s also no coincidence the Cubs are back on top with Alfonso Soriano returning a few weeks ago. The Cubs could lose ANYONE else and be ok, but if Soriano goes down again, we are screwed.

Also, don’t forget that once the playoffs begin, ANYONE can win. Ask the very mediocre Cardinals of last year.

It figures that I will be in Florida from THIS Friday up until 2 days prior to the end of the season. I’m missing the damn playoff run of the Cubs again!

It’s Gonna Happen!

Halo 3:

Since I’ll be on vacation during the opening week, I’ll be several days behind. Not only am I looking forward to 4 player co-op campaign, but another few months of joyous gaming with friends online. Hopefully this game takes a long time to get ruined by cheaters, 12 year olds, and other scum of the online universe that take fun away from others.

NHL 08:

I’m getting more and more frustrated with this game offline. I can’t find a way to play the computer without it being too easy (pro difficulty) or too hard (allstar/superstar). I’ve used multiple different settings but the CPU is too good, and EA still has the ridiculous comeback AI in this game. And what is worth the super goalies of the CPU? Please EA, release a patch or when the roster update comes out, make the goalies less talented. If this game had NHL 07’s goalies, it would be perfect.

Thankfully the online play with friends is good. They just need to fix team play.

For those in my JK Says League, make sure you get signed up and start playing. We will start the regular season at the first roster update.

If you have any questions, ask me.

That’s all for now,

JK

If any of you readers are interested in playing in a small league for NHL 08, let me know. This is going to be a SMALL league (like 6-8 players). I want to try and keep it to people I know if possible, but if you aren’t a jerk and will play in a very laid back fun league, leave me a message. League will be on Xbox 360.

I’m going on vacation in a week as well.

The city of Indianapolis, NBC, and the NFL threw a big party for Colts fans on Thursday night and they delievered. Upon arriving at 4:00pm for the 8:30pm kickoff, I was blown away by the amount of Colts jerseys that were flooding the streets and sidewalks in downtown Indy.

After parking and walking to get something to eat, we came outside to see Hinder performing at Monument Circle. This was followed by Kelly Clarkson and then Faith Hill (who was probably there because she is NBC’s new lead-in singer). Around 7:15 we went with thousands of other Colts fans toward the RCA Dome, now in it’s final season.

Inside, as players finished warmups, the outside of the field had stage equipment ready to be setup. There were extra lights set up by NBC along the outside of the upper bowl that were used for the indoor performance by Indiana native John Mellencamp. The field was setup with a stage surrounded by a giant Colts horseshoe logo.

Following that was the unveiling of the “2006 World Champions” banner with the Super Bowl 41 logo atop the Colts logo. The atmoshpere was electric.

Oh yeah, there was a game too. Colts won easily 41-10 over the New Orleans Saints in what many have called a Super Bowl preview.

Thoughts on the game and surroundings:

– The Colts defense made Reggie Bush look stupid. He not only got stuffed at the line several times, he dropped several easy passes in the flat that could have been significant yards.

– Jason David, former Colts CB, drew the short straw and was stuck covering WR Reggie Wayne all night. It was great for David when he returned a Wayne fumble for a Touchdown, but Wayne burned David on a couple occasions for touchdowns of his own.

– Anyone who gets to see Peyton Manning play football should cherish every moment. Manning is incredible, enough said.

– The Colts defense was a question as always, but they allowed a field goal and that was it. DB Bob Sanders is still a beast out there and DE Dwight Freeney put some serious pressure on Drew Brees. It’s only one game, but if the defense plays like this all season, we could easily get home field in the AFC.

– And finally, the bleacher two rows in front of us decided to break off in the 2nd quarter. Yes, there are bleachers there in the upper bowl and it sucks. I think this was the RCA Dome saying “Take a bulldozer to me NOW!” Thankfully Lucas Oil Stadium will use REAL seats for it’s entire capacity.

The Colts are now 1-0 and lead the AFC South by 1/2 game over everyone.
