Did Imus Eat His Hat?



So, after Don Imus called the Rutgers women's basketball team ... well, see here for yourself ... plenty of people and organizations have jumped on the case and are attempting to get him fired. They're right, he should be fired ... but not because of those comments. More after the jump.

For years, Imus has insisted on wearing a cowboy hat to work every day. Some people have even wondered if it was sewn to his head. It seemed that nothing could get that ridiculous hat off of his head ... well except maybe making some racially insensitive comments about female basketball players. Here's a picture from yesterday's "apology" filled broadcast.

So proof that Imus does in fact have a full head of hair.

But now that Imus has been suspended for his comments, the question is should he be fired. I say go for it, but not necessarily for these comments, or even any previous ones.

No I say fire him because he's unfunny, and a fake cowboy.

While some people have used this to embrace their "nappy heads," I think we should use this to get Imus off of MSNBC and get some actual news coverage on there in the morning. I'm a big fan of MSNBC - I try to make a point to watch Keith Olbermann every night and I have to give "props" to Philly native Chris Matthews, even if I just think of Darrell Hammond's impression on SNL every time I see him. But I have never been able to sit through more than five minutes of Imus and his "comedy" show.

So, as an eternal optimist that I am, let's look at the positives that have come from this horrible situation. Imus has lost his hat. Some actual news on MSNBC in the morning, and maybe the most amazing thing, Fred "Eric" Norris actually still can speak.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

I phoned them first and asked every question I could think of and everything was answered to my satisfaction so I went ahead and bought it. Dispatch was fast. Everything was perfect.

Very nice...

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.

Harvey Fierstein, who wrote "Kinky Boots," which had its pre-Broadway run at Bank of America Theatre: "Is there a more fun atmosphere in Chicago than the Italian Village (in the [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Twins-33-Justin-Morneau-red-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-54/]Twins 33 Justin Morneau red 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] Loop)? Three floors, three distinct Italian eateries, but all fun and delicious. The style and flavors are best described as heart-warming. The food tasted like the Italian home-cooked meals from my childhood summers in Seaside Heights, N.J. The wait staff is warm and engaging and will treat you like old friends they have missed seeing. If you can, try to get reservations on the top floor. The colored lights and dioramas are worth the flight of stairs."

Constantine Maroulis, [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Rockies-2-Tulowitzki-blue-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-48/]Rockies 2 Tulowitzki blue 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] who played Drew in "Rock of Ages" at Bank of America Theatre and will play the lead role in the touring "Jekyll Hyde" in March at the Cadillac Palace Theatre: "My favorite restaurant right now is Gilt Bar (in River North). My favorite deep dish pizza is Lou Malnati's pizza."

Peter Lockyer, who played Jean Valjean in "Les Mis rables" at the Cadillac Palace Theatre: "Stocks Blondes (in the Loop) so convenient, a block away from the Cadillac Palace Theatre and recommended by our resident local boy, (actor) Max Quinlan. We [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Red-Sox-29-Adrian-Beltre-Home-Cool-Base-White-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-88/]Red Sox 29 Adrian Beltre Home Cool Base White 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] hung out here our last night, and it's a simple, no frills, good-bar-food kind [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Yankees-52-CC-Sabathia-Red-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-52/]Yankees 52 CC Sabathia Red 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] of joint. And then there's San Soo Gab San (restaurant), for those willing to take a quick trip up to (the Lincoln Square neighborhood). I love Korean food, and this place has got it 24 hours. Again, not fancy, but that's how I roll."

Dee Roscioli, who played Elphaba in "Wicked" at the Oriental Theatre: "Zebra Lounge (in the Gold Coast) is by far my favorite. It's really tiny. You could miss it if you don't know where it is. No food, but drinks and music not to be missed. Haymarket Pub Brewery (in West Town) has hand-crafted beers and great food. Need I say more? Sushi Samba (in River North): I like anyplace I can get sushi, plantains and make-you-feel-cool decor."

Joseph Leo Bwarie, who played Frankie Valli in "Jersey Boys" at Bank of America Theatre: "The Gage a few blocks from the Bank of America Theatre. Best burger I had all year. Great fish and chips. Great beers. Great service. It feels like you are inside an old train station. (Also) Rosebud Steakhouse right outside the Bank of America Theatre stage door. You walk 20 steps through an alley and you arrive. Classic atmosphere.

Eric Petersen, who played Shrek in "Shrek The Musical" at Cadillac Palace Theatre: "Portillo's (in River North). Oh, I can taste it just saying it. (I get) two Jumbo Dogs with everything and a Beef-N-Cheddar Croissant. And Sweet Water Tavern and Grille in the Loop. I'm a burger guy and they have a burger with Merkts cheese that is to die for."
