Who are worse drivers....

So living in the Cleveland Ohio area can be a challenge if you drive a lot. Considering the city itself only has three sides, it just stands to reason that the highways would be packed all the time..and they are. This morning I got up at 5AM to go to work. There were a ton of people already on the road. Most of them driving like a bunch of idiots, like I need that first thing in the morning. What I can never figure out though, is who are worse drivers? Here are a few examples in no particular order.

1. Hillbillies/Rednecks
The year is 2011 and there are still plenty of people driving around with Southern flags flying in the back windows. What makes it worse is that they are weaving in and out of traffic on 4X4 frames and giant tires flicking cigarette butts out the windows. Looks like they are all going to meet up at the local truck pull.

2. People over the age of........Methuselah!!!
I'm all for people having rights, but people who are so old and shrunken that they can't see over the steering wheel scare the living %^@#& out of me. That and going about the speed of a glacier is enough to send you into cardiac arrest.

3. How do I say this....Women of color
I kid you not, one day while driving down the highway I got stuck behind a younger woman of a certain race, who was talking on her cell phone, putting on make up, and either singing or screaming, all while going about 50 miles per hour in the fast lane. I know a lot of women of any race who drive and put on make up at the same time, and that should be illegal in my mind. However, it seems that certain people do not understand the unwritten rules of the road while driving in the fast lane. If someone is behind you and they flash the bright lights at you, MOVE OVER!! Don't hog the road and flip them the bird like they are making you do something under protest or that will make you look weak. It's just a courtesy.

4. My mom
I love her to death, but dear lord, she is a bad driver. She can't remember where her false teeth are most of the time, why does she still have a drivers license?

New York Yankee fans are the worst........

So my father and I took in a baseball game a few days ago. My team was playing the New York Yankees, one of the most, if not THE most hated sports franchise in history. It's not so much that they have won so much as it is the obnoxiousness of their fans. Several Yankee fans sat behind us and constantly throughout the game yapped about the other team, the fans, the ballpark, the food, etc etc etc. The topper to this is that they have the most annoying accent ever. It's almost as bad as a Red Sox fan except without the attitude.
If a home team player didn't swing at a pitch, they started saying things like "Oh he's a lookuh" (looker i assumed). When my team got a hit thay started up with "Look at these loosahs, thay act like theya winnin"
what a bunch of stupids". Really, that's stupid to you? How about sounding like a bunch of wannabe Guidos from Jersey Shore? That's NOT stupid to you? I guess you couldn't handle it when the other team came back and beat you since we didn't hear another retarded word out of your mouths.
Yeah I guess we were "lookuh's". We were looking at our team send you morons home.
Hint: take voice lessons.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

So my wife and I went to see a movie. The new Michael Bay blockbuster, Transformers: Dark of the Moon. After reading so many negative reviews from the so-called professional reviewers, I HAD to see it. The movie was a bit long sure, but let's face it. Bay and Spielberg together can do no wrong. Plenty of action, awesome special effects, and most importantly, no Megan Fox. This is the best decision Michael Bay has ever made. The film wasn't marred by her painfully irritating scowl and crappy attitude. Sure, Rosie Huntington-Whitely isn't Meryl Streep or Dame Judy Dench. She isn't even Anne Hathaway, yet she still managed to be a better actress than Little Miss Snotty britches.
Another stellar performance by John Turturro by the way. Why this guy isn't in more movies is beyond my comprehension. He's just funny. His characters are always top notch with the right amount sarcasm and dry wit.
One point I will bring out is my disappointment with the amount of screen time Sam Witwicky's parents get. They delivered some of the best one liners in the previous two installments of the franchise. I guess all good things must come to an end eventually though, right?
Anyway, overall I really enjoyed the movie and I give it a 4 out of 5 stars.
