and lo..

usps christmas 1965

a charlie brown christmas is what my christmas is about.. i remember seeing this on television at an early age.. that it is still shown come holiday time some 46 years on is remarkable for it is real animation, not fox animation, has no "reality-tv" type of contest between douchefags trolling for their 15 minutes of fame by making even bigger douchefags outta themselves trying to out douchefag each other.. it is understated as it conveys the spirit of the season as well as the message.. linus, his blanket, and a single spotlight..

christmas is about hope.. promise.. hope for an end to war and violence.. hope peace on earth.. hope for a cure.. 

christmas is always, for me at least, gonna be the memories of being a small boy and hearing linus read those amazing words from the gospel according to luke.. knowing that there is hope for the future.. hope for acceptance as a gay man who loves sports and plays played hockey.. hope for us all that a better world can be had if we want it..

well that and midnight mass on christmas eve.. its the one church service i ever even go to anymore..

for me the nativity is mystery as much as myth.. it has power and holds great meaning.. it gives me hope..

i think christmas morning is really all about little kids neway.. santa, the decorations, and the presents.. clothes.. again? really? fail.. unless thats what you really wanted.. you know who you are.. ;)
a new bike.. a hockey stick or new skates.. i guess now its about gift cards.. lol

me and santa.. well blow-up santa..

empty tray of christmas cookies.. nom nom

happy christmas to all my family, friends, fuck buddies, interweb acquaintances, and blog stalkers followers..

spin cycle: december 14..


 sydney crosby is out indefinitely.. again.. shades of marc savard? ironic if after matt cooke ends savards career boston bruin potentially ends crosbys.. fail..

lots of head injuries in the nhl right now... statistically no more than previous seasons, were just paying more attention so it seems like there are more..

minnesota wild.. still in 1st place.. the fuck? its gotta be cause of mike yeo.. just sayin..

yo flyers fans.. with both pronger and giroux on the shelf with concussions the hatred shifts east to the city of brotherly love... <<<< oxymorons.. js.

fuck you! you giroux-less sidney crosby haters...

stamp fragile on his forehead.. better use more bubble wrap n duct tape.. *

planes, trains, and hockey teams: 

through the generosity of the rest of the teams in the khl, lokomotiv is again a professional ice hockey team.. after such an unbelievably senseless tragedy, welcome to the game boys.. 

the brand new yaroslavl lokomotiv team

the los angeles kings have finally closed the door on terry murray.. dont let said door hit you in the ass on your way out.. i thought he should have been gone after last season.. but hey.. better late than never..
and big surprise! they arent any better with john stevens at the helm... i suppose its an interim promotion fail for sure now..
next up.. darryl sutter? tony granato? randy carlyle? why isnt anyone talking about davis payne? or ted nolan? oh right.. my bad.. i guess the philladelphia flyers western conference edition is a fail... 

dude.. we really suck..  and we got the coach fired.. 

~ cheers... david

aids at 30..


ryan white

ryan and his mom jeanne

everyone that doesnt know who ryan white is needs to click this link* and have a listen...

athletes get hiv/aids.. trust me.. we do.. so do women and children.. people of color make up over 40% of new infections in the united states.. and yes, sadly young gay men still get hiv/aids.. over 20% of sexually active gay men 18-25 have hiv and dont know it..

wherever you are in the world.. tell your government to fully fund hiv/aids education, research, prevention, and treatment..   your life could depend on it..

boys. dont. cry.

aids and the nhl..
