Does Monster Energy Drink Hate America?

Would you believe me if I told you Monster Energy drink hates America?

I know it would be hard to imagine that an American company that has made its way to the top of the capitalist system by working hard and trying to provide a product people want to buy would decide that they no longer want the same entrepreneurial system that gave them their chance to be available to everyone else but it seems that may be the case with the corporate giant that owns and produces the monster energy drink products.

I know this seems hard to even imagine. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around it even as I'm typing this but, like it or not, it sure does look like the Monster Energy drink people are doing their dead level best to push a small mom and pop company out of business. The really crazy thing is, and this is the part that makes me truly wonder if Monster Energy Drink hates America, the little mom and pop company they are trying to squash is not a competitor. They are a tiny little brewery that make BEER.

I know, that's what I thought. Beer is the opposite of an energy drink. First of all, it actually tastes good. I mean, do you ever sit down in front of the TV on Sunday afternoon to watch the game and ask your significant other to bring you a Monster Energy drink? Of course not, unless you are really weird, you ask for a beer. As a matter of fact, I don't know anyone who drinks any kind of energy drink for the taste because the honest truth is, they all suck.

Monster Energy Drink Sucks!

Of course, that's just my opinion but that's what I think. And I don't mean just their taste, which really is bad, but their business practices make me want to puke too. As a matter of fact, I think Monster Energy Drink sucks so bad that I wanted to bring this to your attention and take the time to publicly thank Allyn Hane from Blogger Illustrated for bringing it to my attention so I could bring it to yours. If you haven't been introduced to Allyn's work you should check him out he is really into video blogging and is quickly perfecting the art. As a matter of fact, I've decided to add his site to my sidebar blogroll. Check him out. By the way, some of his stuff may not be safe for work so turn the sound down a bit ;)

Video Gamer Confessions

OK, It's time to admit something to you guys;




I'm a gamer.

No, I mean a GAMER. I love it. I can spend literally hours and hours with a wireless controller in my hand. I sometimes even forget to eat for two days when I'm really into a new game.

I know, it really is pathetic. Now, I'm not asking for any kind of sympathy from you guys. I'm just trying to explain why I don't have time to hang out around here as much as I used to. I'm also writing to explain why I may not be around much for a few months because there is something all gamers know; this is game season. All of this years games have been coming out over the last month or two and over the next month the rest will be coming out.

The funny thing is, my preference is for the sports games instead of the first person shooters. (Although those are pretty cool when I'm in the right mood) I like Tiger Woods golf OK, but I really have come to be absolutely addicted to FIFA Soccer and NHL Hockey. The crazy thing is that I absolutely hate to watch both soccer and hockey. What's up with that? I love to watch football and love to play baseball but don't particularly care to play any of those sports games. Crazy, right? I know.

And those of you have been around here reading this drivell for a long time, you are well aware that I can't possibly be expected to play my video games without using some of those sneaky and fun little cheat codes. The problem with using game cheats is that once you get used to using them you don't want to ever play a game without them.

So, anyway, I knew some of you guys were probably gamers too and may have been looking around for some cool game cheat sites. If you are like me, you have found that most of the game cheat sites out there are just a bunch of garbage that looks like nothing but ads for you to click on instead of any real content. That's why I wanted to bring a couple of sites to your attention so you don't have to wade through the junk to find the good stuff.

So, here you go. If you like soccer (or maybe if you don't) go check out FIFA 10 Cheats. They have information for several gaming platforms including a few downloadable PC cheats. If hockey is more up your alley then you might want want to click over to NHL 2K10 Cheats and check out what they have to offer. Of course, if you prefer the EA Sports variety of hockey then you would want to check out NHL 10 Cheats. Both of these hockey cheat sites have pretty much the standard cheat code fare of achievements, trophies, cheats, etc. but they seem to just be presented in a friendlier format that doesn't seem to be trying to cram an advertisement down your throat.

I just wanted to poke my head in and let you guys know about those sites so you wouldn't have to go through all of the hassles I have wading through the junk sites out there to find them. Hope it helps. Now, if you will excuse me, I need to grab a sandwich, use the bathroom and crawl up in my bean bag chair for a few hours of intense video game immersion.
