Barack Supports Quitters

OK, so alonzo mourning isn't that bad of a quitter but does anyone else remember when he was traded to the raps as part of the carter deal and refused to play for us. then he went back to miami and won himself a championship. i do. but seriously, he had a great carrer and according to people who seem to like him he was a pretty good guy. even obama took time out of his busy schedule to read him a letter that he wrote for him. i didn't see that part of the ceremony but isn't that what you do when a loved one is in AA or something. anyways he deserves it. which brings me to the question of who will be the first to have their number retired by the raps (or el raps as they are known in mexico). the poll is up and it's running.

so is it just me or is it snowing outside? wasn't i wearing shorts and sandals two days ago or did i just imagine that? oh well, i guess we cant put the pants away just yet.

so michigan state is in the final four. i must say this is exciting, i hope we see a state/'nova final so fitch and i can get into a legitimate ncaa beef. in other news, the raps are killing it against teams under .300 at home recently. mathematically we are still alive so, playoffs?

we shall see

Happy Birthday Blidlife!

the first rasho award
rasho's three
the star wars debate
elephant seals
fan of the month
the attack of the mice
franky's moment
girv's retarded
fan mail
chuck leaves
rasho leaves
the return
the hurricane
the feeling
the feud
live from the lab
the twelve days of girv
the 100th post

the beginning

and many more

Yea We Did

Whatupp....Happy 1 year anniversary blidlife readers...mens are on some serious hangover tings but anyway, we did it, 365 days and numerous blid crops later we are still manzing on this blog tang.

long live Blid Life

your man,


huge win today with the st. patty's day green over rasho and the pacers. good to see rasho in the ACC again. and after almost the entire season i have found a new favourite raptor. pops mensah-bonsu with 21 and 8. here's some info on him:
second year in the league started with dallas and bounced around the league with the spurs and wizards and he played a little in spain and italy. so bryan the great decided to give a manz a chance and sign him. he also wears the same knee brace as me (see picture), oh and did i mention he's british? BADASS! and so pops, welcome to immortality (whatever that means). don't forget the usa-holand game in the WBC tonight.

should be a doosy

still rockin'

ok so in grade ten a bunch of us were at someones house watching some movie at about one in the afternoon. exam week was two weeks away and fitch gets a call from his dad (cobb not bio-dad). cobb tells him that he needs to come home and study for six hours before dinner. i should reiterate that exams were two weeks away and it was grade ten. fitch did well in school back then.

ok so the world baseball classic is into round two and canada is out. there are a few people i would like to thank for this prestigious loss: ryan dempster, rich harden, erik bedard, and of course, jeff "canadian pitchers can't stay healthy" francis. apparently, during the games in toronto kevin youkilis felt "like a member of the visiting team" while playing for the americans. in this article he talks about how he hopes the US gets more fan support in the US than they got in canada. my favourite part is when he says that the team is trying to do good things for the country ie. the troops. from the other side of the spectrum. do not be surprised by the dutch winning two games against the dominicans and almost beating the puerto ricans. if you have ever met a dutch person you know that they are on a completely different level of consciousness from the rest of us. yes, the drugs help, but they are also all fucking nuts. personally, i have enjoyed the tournament so far and if you like baseball, i recommend watching any game. they're all good.

on that note i would like to present our next rasho of the year award to joey votto for showing up to the WBC. this was an obvious choice because he was the only one.

the brier is this week and times are good. kevin martin is killing it and the howard bros are being their usual quirky senile old selves.

went to the great big sea concert last night and it was good. spirit of the west was impressiva as an opener, if you like home for a rest and that type of music you should look into them because they have a lot of quality music. great big sea kept taking about playing at the lower deck back in the day. is it possible that signal hill could become popular outside of halifax. that could turn out being more annoying than twitter. have you heard of this twitter. you can text a short statement to twitter and they post it on the internet and you can sign up to receive updates on what your favorite celebrities are doing. who the fuck cares what your doing. if this catches on like facebook i might have to move to sangala. i here it's nice there.

i also realize that i blog about what i'm doing on a fairly regular basis, but this is just to pass the time. no one actually reads this do they? do they? if your reading this you really should stop wasting your time. lois and i really don't lead very exciting lives. do yourself a favor and go read a book.

i hear war and peace is good

Fitch Revisited

So today is the day we are restarting our daily musings and insight into the life of Matt Fitch, helping you, the blidlife reader(s) understand the mole that is affectionately known as zanglefeen.

August 2003

So Fitch and his parents went to mexico, a typical family vacay you know sun seafood and hula dancing under the moon...As I can recall it, he decided to go touring the mayan ruins with his family for a full day. Due to Fitch's extensive consumption of wine coolers the previous night he was in a fairly inebriated state and generally haggard living. Being the absent-minded kid he is he got on the bus and was halfway to the ruins when he realized that he did not shower that morning, and also he forgot his glasses in the fray.

Due to this lack of vision, he was very much out of his element and confused. To make a very long and boring story very short, it turns out that fitch hit on a guy who he thought was agirl, was inducted into a cult which worshipped moles, and got his glasses back thanks to the help of a wily and lith wizard named James Patterson

Just bun,

holy shit i totally forgot we had this blog!

just kidding, i know your all probably pissed off that we have been so inactive lately, well maybe not. so here's what's happening. we had a bunch of work during the first week of our absence, and in the second week we were on vacation. ok, so i didn't actually go anywhere but it was still a vacation.

now we're back in full force and things should get back up to the usual.

lets start with a little unfinished business.

one of the remaining ten days of fitch:

3. call me lazy but he and i have been through so much over the years that it's only natural that our days would cross over at least once. in case you don't remember here's: the night.

more to come.

i think it's also time to give out the rasho award again.

our current winner: shawn marion.
the man is fitting in very well with the raps and is playing really well also. hopefully we keep him around.

another announcement:

from a business standpoint, blidlife international is beginning operations as a consulting firm. myself, president and CLO, and lois (our CBO) would be happy to try and answer any questions you may want to ask us.

we will try to keep the blog going at full speed in the time leading up to our one year anniversary.

till next time
