SocMo Sighting

March 17, 2005

Those darn paparazzi were out and at it again. You just cant go anywhere these days without one of them jumping out from behind a trash dumpster and snapping your picture. Here is a shot they got last night of SocMo and me on the way over to the Annual BrotherJones St. Pats Day Pre-game Tailgate Party. I gotta tell ya… that SocMo is one crazy monkey.

The Comments

Don Jones

It appears SocMo has taken control of the steering wheel. You might want to up your life insurance Dennis. That SocMo is one stoical monkey.

Dennis Jones

…very observant Don… I put a tight crop on this picture for SocMo’s sake, but that is exactly what is going on here… he is grabbing the steering wheel… that is why I have that shocked look on my face… he is a nut…

Don Jones

SocMo ain’t from around these parts. I think he can drive from the passenger seat ‘cause he used to deliver mail down in Arkansas somewhere.

Doug Jones

Didn’t I tell you guys… SocMo learned to drive by chasing squirrels on my riding mower. He modified the mower… 0-60 in 12 seconds… not too shabby for a lawnmower.

Dennis Jones

I’m sorry about filling him up with Mtn Dew on the way over to your house last night…

I actually threw a couple back myself…

Doug Jones

I heard that Mountain Dew is the new coffee

Dennis Jones

Well… I dont know about that… all I know is it will leave your mustache green…

Happy St. Pat’s!

SocMo really got into St. Patrick’s Day this year. After drinking 6 liters of Mountain Dew, he started turning green and glowing. Silly SocMo. Then he started running around the yard chasing squirrels. Good golly bum… that was fun to watch!

SocMo wanted me to tell you his favorite St. Patrick’s Day joke, so here goes…

Question: What is green and sits behind the house?

Answer: Patty O’Furniture (patio furniture)

Laugh it up… fuzzball…

The Comments

Don Jones

That is hilllarrrious… I laughed ‘til I stopped.

Dennis Jones

Doug I think we are going to have to do an “intervention” with SocMo… he’s getting a little outa control… again…

Don Jones

I failed to wear green today… and I can’t stop pinching myself.

Baseball-hearings

Some of baseball’s biggest players told Congress Thursday that steroids are a problem for the sport but denied there is widespread use of them. Mark McGwire, choked back tears at times, and repeatedly refused to say if he took the roids when he was salvaging the sport’s popularity with his home run race with Sammy Sosa. Except for admitted steroid user SocMo Jones, the five other players repeatedly ducked pointed questions on the subject.

The Comments

Doug Jones

SocMo Jones has never used stereos. He prefers to listen to the basic AM mono radio broadcasts. As you can see, SocMo was still under the influence of Mountain Dew during the hearings. This may have caused him to admit to doing things that he has really never done… like use stereos.

Dennis Jones

I really dont see why congress had to go and make such a big fuss about stereo usage in the first place… I’ll admit it, I use stereos…

Don Jones

I recognize that tie! SocMo has once again helped himself to my wardrobe. Moochin’ juiced-up monkey.

mandy

hey put socmo in google and you are the first name

Dennis Jones

well… BrotherJones.com is the place to go for all the latest breaking news on SocMo… maybe the only place to go…

Don Jones

From the size of SocMo there, I’d hate to meet up with him in a dark alley

Hockey Talk 06/12

…with your host, Dennis Jones…

HockeyTalk

…waiting for the “GodLike” boost of energy…

Here is an actual question I sent to my son’s blog site…

Dear Nick Is Good For Oklahoma…
I have a hockey game tomorrow night, but I seem to be even older and slower than I was last year… is there anything I can do to remedy this intolerable situation??

Here is Nick’s actual response to my actual question…

Dear “Dennis”…
Thank you for your question. I suggest a heavy diet of Krispy Kremes and Mountain Dew right before the game. (If you are short of cash, Mountain Lightning will work) This will ensure a God like boost of energy, and allow a nice crash after the game when you are hoping to sleep… Hope this helps.

Willing to try anything to improve my game, I pulled into Steak n’ Shake and grabbed an Orange Freeze right before my game on Friday night. It wasn’t exactly donuts and Mtn. Dew, but since it’s an ice cream drink I figured it would have an equivalent amount of sugar in it.

Nick’s advice worked really well. I had energy to burn… until my third shift when I pulled a hamstring. This effectively meant I only had one leg to skate on for the rest of the game. If I were a horse they would have had to shoot me… but I played the rest of the game anyway. Quite honestly, my game doesn’t look much different whether I’m running at full strength or only skating on one leg.

So what have I learned from this experience? When you play in a hockey league where you are older than absolutely everyone else by 25 years or more, nothing is going to improve your game.

I also learned that I sure do enjoy having an Orange Freeze right before a hockey game. Next week I think I will have an Orange Freeze before AND after the game.

The Comments

Doug Jones

I vote for having an Orange Freeze and skipping the game… but that is just me… hey.. did you get that 24 tape? I paid extra bucks to try to get it to you before the weekend… but it was US Postal Service….

Dennis Jones

Yes, I got the tape… thanks a bunch for doing that… are you going to Mtn. Grove any time this summer? If so I will meet you there and pay you back… I’ll take you to Steak n’ Shake for an Orange Freeze or something…

Don Jones

I’ve heard the Key Lime Pie donuts from K.K. works wonders for injured hammies.

Dennis Jones

…I have another game this Friday night… I’ll let you know if that’s true or not, Don…

Don Jones

Use a whole tube of Ben-Gay too. The aroma will clear the way for a little one-on-one goalie action.

Nick Jones Everybody

The before and after method is def. the best way to avoid energy and provide for maximum hockey ability… Orange Freezes have been my drink of choice post-hockey game for years…

Doug Jones

… never had an Orange Freeze… but now you’ve flung a cravin’ on me…

Dennis Jones

…so yer jonesin’ for an Orange Freeze eh, Doug?

Don Jones

Have the boys at Steak ‘N SHake throw in a few ibuprofrens with that post game Orange Freeze and you will be relaxed and pain free by the time you get home.

Doug Jones

Don plays golf… Dennis plays hockey… and me?… I go to the YMCA on my lunch break and drink free coffee while THINKing about exercise. I call it THINKercize. Today while I was deep into my THINKercize session, I watched a little World Cup action on the large screen TV. Soccer actually looks a lot like hockey to me. That is… hockey played with no pads… or sticks… on a gigantic green pool table. Other than that… it’s just the same.

Dennis Jones

…yes, Doug, I concur with your comments …my biggest problem with soccer is that you don’t get to wear any cool equipment to play it… in hockey you get to gear up, wear a helmet n’ all kinds of massive padding… great jerseys… even if you stink at playing hockey, you at least get to look good while doing it…

Don Jones

Den, didn’t you come across a place that makes custom hockey jerseys?

Doug Jones

At BrotherJones it isn’t about how you play… it’s about how you LOOK! and Dennis… you… look… MAH-velous out there…

Dennis Jones

…that’s absolutely right, Doug… on BOTH counts… and, Don, all kinds of places make custom hockey jerseys… are you thinking it’s time to order up a dozen or so Brother Jones Winged Logo jerseys? …what numbers do you guys want?

Don Jones

I am liking that new sub-header there Dennis. Continuing from yesterday… who won that hockey game last night? I’m too lazy to search it out … or possibly it’s just the idea of having to leave the safe confines of the Brother Jones site.

Dennis Jones

…I fell asleep in the third period, but I think the Carolina Panthers won and are up in the series 3 to 1…

Don Jones

Let me guess …. you had an Orange Freeze and passed out on the couch?

Dennis Jones

…close …yard work and I passed out on the couch …and I gotta mow this afternoon sometime before it starts raining again…

Last night I did this little picture and recorded it. It’s really not all that great to watch because the rendering was all pretty subtle so you don’t see a whole lot happening, but the music (written by Michael Smith and performed by Trout Fishing In America) is fun to listen to.

I’m still in the process of experimenting with how to best load videos onto Brother Jones. Let’s see how this works. You need to click into the comments section to see the video, (for those who follow this page with an RSS reader, you’ll need to come to the page to get into the comments section). You can also visit my YouTube site to see it there.

it’s great that you can paint this while listening to only one song. You are FAST!

Zaz

What! Doug, he is amazingly fast…what’s your secret Oh great one….Karen’s coffee, Mountain Dew first thing in the morning….extra arms that only the Jones family know of. Dude, share with your fans your amazing speed.

Dennis Jones

…the secret of my amazing speed is the magic video compression button in my i-movie video making program…

Don Jones

I’m seeing an Oscar in your future.

Dennis Jones

…me, too. …an Oscar Mayer… hotdogs for lunch today!

Doug Jones

you may already be a weiner!

Doug Jones

That reference is so inside, that only I get it. Maybe I should explain… An old cartoon has a hot dog standing at his mailbox looking at a letter he has just received. The letter says… “you may already be a weiner!”

Dennis Jones

…oh, I got it… I laughed out loud when I read it!

Doug Jones

LOL? you did a LOL? amazing! (aren’t you sick of the whole LOL thing?)

Dennis Jones

…that’s why I write everything all the way out even if it takes forever… me and my best lil friend Mr. Spellcheck……

Doug Jones

Hey… they are all BACK ON THE ISLAND AGAIN! Woo hoo!…

WOW 2 posts for the price of 1

Don Jones

You know, sometimes the 2 for 1 Brother Jones posts are really a good value. Today is that day for you Jeff. Enjoy!

Dennis Jones

…that’s right, Don, I was running the 2 for 1 Comment Special today and it IS a good value… all a part of the Brother Jones Economic Stimulus Package you signed but failed to read… unfortunately, you and Doug will personally have to pay for Jeff’s second comment… it’s clearly spelled out on page 3,678,945…
