All About Galzakian
I blog. Therefore I am. Blogging. Yes.
That is all. Carry on.
Bit quiet on the blog-front again, lot of games to chew through!
Red Alert 3, FIFA 09, Fable 2, Fallout 3, Dead Space, Farcry 2, Pro Evo 09. Busy, busy, busy! And with GoW2 and WotlK coming out soon, going to be even more so!
So the AFL grand final took place yesterday, between the Cats and the Hawks. I think the Cats were $1.30 favorites to win while the Hawks were out at about $3. At Half-time it seemed pretty even, but after that, the Hawks really bolted and slammed on about 6 goals in the third quarter while the Cats wasted all their opportunities and held out in the final quarter to win by 26 points.
It got me thinking about the whole year and how the Cats were supposedly a sure thing, even way back when, at the beginning of the season. Sport is very fickle, and momentum swings back and forth, and nothing is really set in stone. A lot of people said the Hawks winning was a major upset, but really; they finished second on the ladder, only lost a handful of games, and were quite competitive with the Cats last time they played. So I wasn't that shocked. I'm sure a lot of Cats fans are; their team just couldn't capitalize on the scoring opportunities in the first quarter, and when the Hawks got going, they went bang bang bang, grabbing their chances when they came. It will be an interesting season in 2009, and maybe this is the beginning of a great new rivalry for the modern era.
Although the AFL season has come to an end, the Premier League is only just begun. Last night the Merseyside Derby took place, between Liverpool and Everton. Although the first half was rather dull, the second half was where the game came alive, and two fantastic strikes by Fernando Torres sealed the game. Unfortunately we had a couple more goals ruled out - one of which was a ridiculous decision, but a win's a win and to Liverpool fans, the Merseyside derby between the fierce local rivals is the most important game to win all season.
I watched Hull beat Arsenal afterwards, which was a huge shock. Hull played well, and scored two great goals in the space of ten minutes, then held out for the win, so good for them. Any game where our rivals drop points is a good game. It's a long season, but at least things look good for us so far. Beaten the Mancs and the Evertonians. Couldn't ask for a better start.
So the new set of Ricky Gervais Podcasts is available today. Fans of the previous podcasts and the original xfm broadcasts will know just how hilarious the show is
It stars Ricky Gervais (duh), Stephen Merchant (co-developer of The Office), and Karl Pilkington; a bald manchester fool who is probably the daftest person on the entire earth. Ricky and Steve discovered him when they were working at XFM radio station in England, and he was the producer.
Karl Pilkington is probably the funniest person who isn't intentionally being funny that you'll ever hear. His ideas are both comedy gold and borderline lunatic at once. Despite some people original believing he's just acting as a character conceived by Ricky and Steve, Karl Pilkington is a real person; all his ideas are real, and all Ricky and Steve did was get him to open his mouth on air, and the rest was all him. You've simply got to listen to him and marvel at his insanity.
Head on over to http://www.rickygervais.com/ and get yourselves the latest installment in the most successful podcast series ever. Comedy gold.

Galzakian does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send Galzakian a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
