So I Decided To Start Blogging Again - At Least For Today

I've realized that I'm able to put up with a lot of shit.  I had an epiphany while my parents were screaming at me for losing yet another piece of luggage on the train to Grand Central Terminal...I don't get as mad at myself as others do at me.

If I lose a piece of luggage I say fuck it no luggage and move on with my day.  If I light bulb breaks, well it looks like I'm living in the dark.  I find that I am super easy going when it comes to material things that I lose in my life.  Sure I'm losing money that I would like to have back, but is that really the worst thing?  Should we loathe ourselves for mistakes we've made, or should we shake them off and continue on with our day like nothing has happened.  I like to think it is a balance between the two, because being hard on yourself may prevent this from occurring again.

And as someone who has had 4 iPhone 7's in the past month I tell you to Cherishhhhh them.  Assurion, Verizon's Mobile Recycling Department, actually just cut me off saying it was not cost effective for them to insure my phones due to the high turn over rate lol.  They com at the Don Vito though they can Assurion I'm gonna get some scalps and my insurance back.  But I digress.

 I guess what I'm trying to say is what do you think the healthy balance in this equation?  I'm always happy, yet always losing things.  I may not care but other people do.  Is it really their business?  Does that make me Ten Second Tom from 50 First Dates?  I know I'm not going to loathe myself over something like a phone and maybe that's the 17 year old Hippie Todd trying to break on through (No pun intended Jim Morrison).

I want to find a balance, care about my belongings without being materialistic.  It'll be tough moving forward but I feel as an adult I have to be more organized.  If not I'll be losing shit to the day I die.  Which according to deathclock.com is 2076 so I've got some time to figure shit out!

If you have any suggestions let me know.

"With the disappearance of those on Malaysian Airlines MH370 billionaire Jacob Rothschild becomes the sole owner of an important semiconductor patent. 
 Coincidence? I think not! The mysteries surrounding Malaysian Airliner MH-370 continue to grow with each passing day and Mr. Rothschild is smack dab in the middle.
 Illuminati  member, Rothschild, is believed to have exploited the airliner to gain full Patent Rights of an incredible KL-03 micro-chip. The US technological company, Freescale Semiconductor,  who shared its rights with Rothschild, had twenty senior members on board who had just launched a new electronic warfare gadget for military radar system’s the day before the plane went missing.  
 The Semiconductor company develops microprocessors, sensors, and other technology including stand-alone semiconductors that perform dedicated computing functions.
 But the questions that arise are why were there so many Freescale employees traveling together? What were their jobs? Their mission? And did they employees carry valuable cargo? With all the power our elite carry, why couldn’t they track down the missing plane?
 Of the 239 people aboard flight MH370, most of them were engineers and others working to make the company’s chip facilities in Tianjin, China and Kuala Lumpur more efficient."
 “These were people with a lot of experience and technical background and they were very important people,” Haws said. “It’s definitely a loss for the company.” Mitch Haws vice president of global communications and investors relations

Ok. I'll admit, I love conspiracy theories.  It baffles me when I hear information like this and it's not on the forefront of the investigation.  It was a big deal when the plane mysteriously vanished and the fact that it hasn't been found yet only adds to the strangeness.  Now a couple years later a mysterious piece of debris turns up around Australia.  

There are so many theories about what happened to this plane, and unlike many other conspiracies Flight 370 theories are nearly impossible to disprove.  Some think The Americans or Russians shot it down, some think it flew into a Bermuda-like-Austalian Triangle.  Others think it was hijacked or crashed, while some family members believe that their families aboard Flight 370 are being held in Middle-Eastern countries like Afghanistan or Pakistan.  

It is a tragedy no doubt, but why are there still so many unanswered questions.  It would seem that Jacob Rothschild had the most to gain from the plane mysteriously vanishing.  Why were 20 Freescale Semiconductor employees onboard that flight, and what did they know?  The Rothschild family are famously known for pulling shady shit throughout history to earn their fortune and this patent may secure the family's future for another few centuries.

This Rothschild angle clearly begs the question of is Jacob Rothschild the prime suspect?  It seems to be the only shred of motive for the planes disappearance.  As we all saw in Lost it takes a ton of Old Man Money to hide a plane of that size without a whisper of its location leaking out.  Till' this day Flight 370 remains a mystery and a tragedy, and I'm not sure we'll ever get the answers we are looking for.

Hoyer's Abysmal Performance



That had to be the worst Quarterbacking performance in NFL Playoff history.  Many people think Brian Hoyer doesn't look like he's an NFL Starting Quarterback.  Some say he looks like the kicker, the punter, or the peanut guy walking through stands.  Tonight Hoyer had 4 more interceptions then hairs on his head.

Why Hoyer was allowed to stay in the game is beyond me?  You're telling me a guy with 3 first half turnovers, and the fans booing him is going to come back and light it up in the 2nd half against one of the best Defenses in the league?!  Even Deandre Hopkins wish he had that drunk Ryan Mallet back throwing to him, but I heard he was picking up Jadeveon Clowney somewhere along the Houston Highway.

My Hollywood Ending for Sons of Anarchy


Remember when Gemma got raped by those Nazis?  Ahhh those were the days.  I'm really starting to hate her more than any other character in the history of television...Even Skylar White.  I hope Gemma catches Chucky masturbating and he ends up strangling her to death with his plastic hands.

After which Jax is riding from Gemma's grave to Tara's grave when his clutch gets stuck sending him torpedoing face first into Tara's tombstone.  Jax hits the grave sight with so much force his SOA rings , which he likes to leave on tombstones, are lodged into his eye sockets and Tara's body nearly surfaces back above ground.  Tara's body is then dug up by an amateur metal detector patron.  The man was receiving heavy silver reading over the grave which turned out to be a Giant barbecue fork still lodged in Tara's head.      

Tig ends up riding by the Cemetary massacre on his way back from Gemma's ceremony and kills the Metal Detector for what he's done.  However he can't control himself, screws Tara's dead body, catches Ebola and dies.  Chibs lives happily ever after with the Cop but still has to pay her for sex, and Juice hangs himself.  Third times the charm.  

P.S--Clay's been alive the whole time and in a shocking turn of events is living with John Teller in a Chateau in Ireland.  In a miraculous story of the body's will to live, John Teller survived the truck crash even after breaking every bone in his body.  His bike exploded and he was welded to the bottom of a truck for 16 years living off roadkill, insects, and rain water.  He was finally dislodged on a speed bump and rushed to the hospital.  After having all of his limbs removed he reunited with Clay and became Clay's favorite "Spinner".  JT and Clay shared a bond stronger than most due to the hatred of that Queef Gemma.  Bobby dies of obesity and Nero is deported while vacationing in Arizona.  

P.P.S--Opie's wife continues to get filled.  She can get it.  Also, turns out Abel was retarded all along, the viewers were right.

RIP Tony Gwynn

The City of San Diego, and the entire Nation mourns for Tony Gwynn today.  Tony passed away at the tender age of 54 years old.  Tony was fighting a cancer he developed from decades of doing Dip and other Chewing tobacco   He was the Coach of San Diego State's baseball team and was absolutely loved in this City.  He is without a doubt the greatest player to put on a Padre's uniform, and to this day is the only one the Padres opened their wallets for to stay in San Diego.

He was a career .338 hitter, which is incredible, and an even better teammate.  In 1994 he hit an astounding .394.  No one has come close to hitting than since and to be honest we probably will never see an average that high again.  The guy proved that anyone can make it in baseball as long as you can hit.  He wasn't in great shape, wasn't very fast, and wasn't great defensively.  However he had an unreal talent of putting the ball in play and getting on base.  He is one of the greatest contact hitters/hitters in general of all time.  Hence why he is a First Ballot Hall of Famer.  I've heard stories that Tony and his brother grew up playing wiffle ball, using the smallest bat and balls possible.  They would scuff the hell out of the balls to get crazy movement on them.  The same technique Justin Wentworth, Danny Ranfone, Dave Kresge and I would use at Wenway Park A.K.A. The Swamp.  He would also hit pennies, caps, and marbles with a broom handle to work on his hand eye coordination.  

We may never see a type of player like Gwynn in the MLB again.  These days everything is about how you look on paper on what your upside can potentially be down the road, and that's how it is in all Sports.  Combine results and Showcases (for baseball prospects) seem to be more important to Coaches and GM's than a player's actual results on the field.  Tony was never a flashy player, wasn't fast, and didn't have much power, so I'm thankful he played in a time when the eye test and a player's production on the field were the most important aspects in recruiting prospects.

All over San Diego today people are wearing Padres throwbacks and Tony Gwynn jerseys.  He is probably the most beloved athlete ever to come out of our beautiful city, a tough task to accomplish after being born in Los Angeles.  He stayed in San Diego too and was currently living hear up until his death.  Tony was very active in the community with his charity work, baseball clinics, and the work he put in at the bars and beaches as well.  Almost every bar in PB has a framed Tony Gwynn picture from the night he graced that particular bar with his presence.  He even coached the SDSU Aztecs and was the Head Coach there when Stephen Strasburg put up unthinkable pitching statistics,  stats the World hadn't seen since Joe Cesarin's dominate career at Garden City High School, New York.  Strasburg became a spectacle and media circus every time he touched the mound, and his humble approach to the game and fame stemmed straight from his Head Coach and Friend, Tony Gwynn.  Speaking of Joe "Dirt" Cesarini, let's talk about dipping(chewing tobacco.)

Unfortunately the cancer that killed Tony was developed from years of chewing tobacco.  In fact he had several surgeries on his face, lips, gums, teeth, and cheeks before the cancer finally took his life.  Base Hits and dipping went together for Tony Gwynn like Sigfried and Roy.  They are both great but eventually the latter of them will lead to your face getting ripped off.  As an avid dipper I'm taking tomorrow off as a "Dip of Silence" and will actually try and go as long as I can without dipping.  I'd start today but I'm writing this with a mouth full of Grizzly Mint.  This story hits home to a lot of baseball and hockey players who enjoy dipping and chewing Redman, but I feel a very personal connection to it.  For one my mom is 54 years old, like Gwynn, and my Father turns 54 in July.  I couldn't imagine losing them, especially to something that could have been avoided.  The other connection of course is that I dip constantly.  I've switched to pouches but still not a day goes by where I don't have a least one lip.

Tony Gwynn was taken from us far too soon, and I don't want to end up like that, so I'm going to really try and stop doing chewing tobacco.  The City of San Diego lost its Golden Boy today.  There are streets, restaurants, and even Micro Brews named after Tony Gwynn. You'll see a Gwynn jersey at Petco at every single home game and there is a statue of Tony in the kids park in Center Field.  "You stay Classy San Diego" is a reference to Gwynn and the type of guy he was.  We lost a great ball player, person, and San Diegan today and I know for sure the City feels it.  RIP Tony you will be missed.

P.S.--I was talking on the phone with my friend Ben Freedman earlier today.  Ben is not sports fan but was born and raised in San Diego, and like most people who are born here never left.  A true San Diegan through and through.  If he's going to watch a game it's most likely because we are forcing him to do so, or we're partying at the stadium with our crew.  I told Ben, "San Diego lost one its most beloved citizens today."  Ben's answer, "Ohhh no, Did Tony Gwynn die.?"  You didn't have to be a sports fan to respect, know, and love Tony Gwynn.  He was San Diego's Golden Boy and he will surely be missed.

Husband and Wife Die in Head-on Collision With Each Other


Huffington Post--

A young Texas couple was killed when their two cars collided head-on.


The accident took place on Wednesday morning, three miles away from Odell, Texas, on County Road 87, according to the Times Record.


Nicolas Cruz, 31, and 26-year-old Kristina Munoz were both pronounced dead at the scene.


"It appears speed and the layout of the road, including a hill crest, are going to be factors in the cause of the accident,” Department of Public Safety Trooper Jymie Ha told the Record.


The Arizona Republic reports that neither Cruz nor Munoz were wearing seat belts, according to authorities.


Cruz's Facebook indicates he married Munoz in the Spring of last year.


The Police can say whatever they want happened here, but I know a game of Chicken when I see one. Layout of the road, a hill, coincidentally passing each other between their shifts at the farm the couple worked at...Give me a break. The couple had 3 kids and had been married for only 1 year. I bet that didn't sit too well with old Nicolas Cruz. So what did he do? Like any self respecting man he challenged his wife to a duel. A game of Chicken in the family cars. Seat Belts off! However the outcome of this Game of Chicken was more like the fight between The Red Viper and The Mountain.


I did some additional research and found out that The Husband was driving a pick up truck and The Wife was driving a Saturn. I always thought Saturns were made from recycled bathtubs, but apparently they're as lethal as Jupiter Missiles. Must have mixed up their planets.


P.S.-In all seriousness it sucks 3 kids got orphaned from this. I really hope they don't get separated or lost in the System. RIP to the deceased.

Kings vs. Rangers Game 2 Preview and It's Not Looking Good For The Boys In Blue


All of the analysts and fair weather hockey fans said the Kings would come out sluggish in Game 1.  That the Black Hawks series was far too draining, not to mention it was the Kings third series of this post season to be decided in 7 games.  But what did the Kings do?  They battled back from a 2-0 deficit to win Game One 3-2 on the back of Jonathan Quick yet again.  I mean what a phenomenal save on Hagelin's breakaway in the final minutes of the game.  Quicky has that switch that he can flip on and off, similiar to Lebron James.  Not too many people have that.  If he lets up a few goals early, Stugatz (foooogrrrget bout it), he knows he has the team to back him up.  That's when Quicky goes into lock down mode, and becomes tougher to get by than the Bouncers in Pacific Beach.  
The Kings are off to a great start at home thanks in large part to Justin Will iams.  The same Justin Williams who just surpassed Mark Messier and  The Great One: Wayne Gretzky as the all time points leader in Game 7's.  This 32 year old Canadian has been flying under the radar but really is an immense contributor to this Historic run the Kings are on.  Although a clutch player and hot goalie can carry the team for a period of time, and they cannot do it alone.
The Kings have the best 1st line in all of hockey!  Anze Kopitar is an absolute stud and is probably the best two way center in the lead.  Marion Gaborik has been an absolute beast since landing in LA.  He leads all scorers with 12 goals this playoffs.  That's not a typo 12 goals, and he for sure is not done.  Then there's the Captain, Dustin Brown, who is sometimes forgotten on a team filled with studs.  There is a reason this man wears the C on his chest.  He is a leader and a damn good player at that, hence why The Kings named his the youngest Captain ever, at the time, at 23 years old.  Along with Quicky Dustin carried the Kings to the Stanley Cup in 2012.  They defeated the heavily favored #1 seed Vancouver Canucks with Dustin scoring not 1 but 2 short handled goals in a critical game.  He ended the 2012 playoffs with 12 goals and 8 assists.  It's not surprise the Kings have reached The Western Conference Finals 3 years in a row and are now playing for their Second Stanley Cup in 3 years.  
Shortly after their 2012 Championship they signed Dustin Brown to an 8 year 47 million contract extension, Quick signed a 10 year 70 million contract shortly after, ohh yeh and Kopitar signed a 7 year $48 million dollar after that.  Talk about a chain reaction that most likely gave every Kings executive a wet dream.  Their 3 best players locked up for at least 7 more years.  Is it shocking they're back in the finals?  Absolutely not.  They were also able to keep Drew Doughty who is really starting to come into his own.  I was shocked to find out he is only 24 years old, I feel like he was playing in the league for as long as Aaron Craft was at Ohio State or Scottie Reynolds was at Villanova.  Aaron Craft coming back for his 14th year?  Well Turns out Doughty has been a contributor on The Kings since 2008 when he was 18 years old!!  This Kings Team is Young, Big, and Fast and locked up for years to come.  They will be a force in the West for the next decade if not THE FORCE, and adding the Great Marion Gaborik to this team was like throwing Wild Fire onto the recent San Diego Fires.  What an addition The Czechoslovakian has been.  12 goals and 7 assits.  Bet the Rangers wish they held onto Gaborik now.
However the Rangers are a good team and it will not be an easy road for the Kings to win the Stanley Cup, although I do think they will.  In face I'm so positive they will win that if the Kings do lose I will swallow a live Gold Fish and posit it on a blog in the near future.  If someone else has a worse a punishment  hell I'll d that instead.  Tweet your suggestions @ToddVito18  

It'll be great to get back veteran defenseman Robyn Regehr to compliment Doughty.  According to all reports he's suiting up for Game 2 in LA.  If this Kings win this game series is over, Kings play even better on the Road than they do at home.  Then again they just play awesome everywhere.  Rangers have a tough task on their hands, but one thing is for sure they should have never gotten rid of Marion Goborik and they should have been paying Quicky and Dustin Brown under the table in Prep Schhol to come play for The Rangers.  Both of those guys grew up in the Rangers backyard.  Not MSG's backyard which includes a Subway system and a concrete jungle, I mean the place with grass,  and Rangers fans are smoking Grass if they think they're going to win this Series.  Kings in 5.

P..S--I hope Donald Silver is a huge Kings Fan.  The Kings are without a doubt the best team that plays in The Staples Center, and none of their players have AIDS.  I'm pumped for this game, because each game is going to be exciting and down to the final minutes if not sudden death in OT.  But the Kings just have that "It" Factor, the ability to battle back like no other team in the NHL.  3 Game 7 Road wins in the West and they know what it takes to win a Championship.  These Kings play like a team that knows they're going to win, even Tommen Barathean would take a back seat to the boys in Black.  

Double P.S.--If the Rangers win Henrik Lundqvist should forever be known as the King Slayer.
