What do you think of people who use other's names?

Dave Ramsey was making $250,000 and had a net worth of over $500,000. He ended up losing everything though and had to start over. When this happened he educated himself on money and how to get out and stay out of debt. Since then he has become a respected author who has counseled literally millions on how to do the same.

On Sunday morning, a Colorado Springs Gazette blogger wrote an entry. This blogger makes more noise than your typical blogger, which makes since. He needs to speak loudly in order for people to pay attention to him.

He has his fun, saying all sorts of nonsensical things. And that's all fine.

But this blogger uses the name of "Dave Ramsey" instead of what his real name is. Guess his own name isn't quite good enough for this guy. And, I guess, in the land of free Colorado Springs, Gazette bloggers can say anything they want, even if this offends and saddens those who care about our great country and its great blogosphere.

Glad the real Dave Ramsey is not confused with and therefore his name is not polluted by whoever this Fake Dave Ramsey guy is. Guess Fake Dave Ramsey columns are just another one of those traditions the dying medium of newspaper clings to so fiercely.

What do you think of bloggers using the names of trusted and respected people?

Let me know.

Goodbye Self Respect

So no bullcrap or introduction or anything, let's just jump right to it.

Remember when Gopher hockey players had self respect? They are obviously not dealing with failure very well. This video is just downright pathetic. Oh and the music sucks. What the hell is that? Just terrible. So let us break this steaming piece of rodent feces down. Actually before we do that, what game was this video done at? Or was it done at a game? You can't really tell by the number of fans in the stands. Anyone know the answer? Hmmm, anyways now let us break this steaming piece of rodent feces down.

First Segment: First of all I've never heard of three of these guys and the forth guy is taking over the Tony Lucia Scholarship where he's just on the team because his dad is a coach. So these guys score a goal, they pull the stationary Tiger Williams? Hmmm, that's pretty pathetic. They do throw in their own little touches though I guess. Nate Condon decides to rope a cow or something and looks like a genuine moron. But at least he's not Jared Larson who thinks he's driving a lowrider.

Second Segment: That's your celebration Mike Hoeffel? At least I've heard of you. That's the best thing I can say about your "celebration". What is it even? It's like he's trying to do the stationary one-armed Walk Like an Egyptian. Hey Mike, The Bangles say you suck. I agree. You should be stripped of your Assistant Captaincy for this.

Third Segment: This isn't Guitar Hero, boys. Also you are doing your windmills backwards, morons. Or you aren't, but that doesn't matter. You're not Pete Townshend, stop it. You are a terrible dancer Joe Miller. You have puffy strange hair Jacob Cepis. Jake Hansen, I don't care about you.

If you are the Minnesota Spirit Initiative, it is no wonder the school and it's students have none. What a pathetic display. It makes me sad.

Last but not least:
