Ryan is back....that's right bloggers!



Well, well, well. It's been a while kiddos. I'm sure no one really reads this blog anymore, but in a ridiculous attempt to put my life back together, I've decided to start blogging again. Recent life alterting activities lead me to believe that this will be good for me...so without further edu', lets get to it.

I've got a ton of patients at the D-school right now. Mostly nasty people with a few teeth left, but I've got some descent mouths to work on too. Guy comes in last week complaining of tooth pain, and has one of his lower incisors held in place by calculus. Lets call it a calculus bridge.....riiiiight....

The MLB draft finished earlier this week, and boy oh boy did the Cubs blow it. Their first round pick is seen by many as a wasted pick, and they drafted Jeff Samardzija who will almost assuredly play in the NFL someday. I often hear cubs fans complaining about the team, but they fail to remember that it starts from the bottom up. The cardinals had a descent draft, and went RP happy in the middle rounds. Looks like they're preparing for life after Izzy.

• The word is that the Cubs will give Notre Dame RHP -- and star wide receiver -- Jeff Samardzija whatever it takes to get him signed. Years back, Gary Hughes, now a special assistant with the Cubs, drafted and signed John Lynch for the Marlins. Lynch got to Double-A, only to turn his sole attention to the NFL. This will be a fascinating story.

Speaking of drafts, Tyrus Thomas could be the first pick in the upcoming NBA lottery. God I hope the Bulls don't manage to get this guy....really do...

Is Jason Grimsley's use of human growth hormone a big deal? I think it is. If some mediocre middle reliever is using the shizz, then i'm sure everyone is. Albert Pujols, you are not exoneratedd (sad face).

Snow Patrol (yankers) are playing at the Vic this weekend. I'm not really excited about their new album, after a few listens, but would consider going to see The Duke Spirit (kind of like The Kills). It's all good, welcome me back biotch.

The Duke Spirit - Lion Rip
The Duke Spirit - Salt The Stings
The Duke Spirit - Win Your Love
