Shopping Spree

Written by Rudy on April 12, 2011 - 9:25 am -

The Rudy Report is still flabbergasted that not one person from South Dakota, but hundreds of people in France, have visited the website, which can only be explained by a complete and utter absence of the internet in this lonely, lonely state, today on "National Look Up at the Sky Day." Anyways, you have probably been thinking of buying some clothes for the summer. Hurry up before others grab what you want. Shopping season is on...

Famous US athlete Carl Lewis has announced that he wants to run for state senate in New Jersey, which is weird, because usually people would want to run from New Jersey. The Champions League quarterfinals will continue later today. And, in baseball, the Mets lost against Colorado.

Limo Etiquette 101

Written by Rudy on April 11, 2011 - 9:16 am -

The Rudy Report can neither confirm, nor deny rumors that the European Union has asked Rudy for a comprehensive bailout, because the situation remains fluid, today on "National Name Yourself Day." Prom season is coming up soon and some of the younger readers may want to order a limo to take them to the dance. However, make sure to behave inside the vehicle, and, if you live in a hilly neighborhood, make sure your car will be able to actually get you there...

Okay, so the guy with the - hands down - dumbest name in the tournament won the Masters: Charl Schwarzel (His name is incomplete! Did his parents fall asleep halfway through naming him? Sounds very douchy...). Anyways, he joins a long list of other famous people named Charl: Charl Schwab, Charl Sheen, Charl Brown, Charl Norris, or Charl Chaplin. In the Premier League, Chelsea, ManU, and Arsenal won. Liverpool will play against ManCity tonight. In baseball, the Mets lost against Washington. The Yankees probably beat Boston, but then again, who's checking?!?! In the NBA, the Knicks beat Indiana. And, in the NHL, the Rangers beat New Jersey on Saturday, which was just enough to qualify for the playoffs. Congratulations!

The Rudy Report says Happy Birthday to Mark Teixeira, Trevor Linden, Chris Ferguson, Marcello Lippi, and Armenian weightlifting legend Ashot Danielyan. On this day in 1905, Albert Einstein revealed his Theory of Relativity; a fairly easy concept of geometric theory explaining space-time in relation to the curvature of four-momentum matter in a system of partial differential equations.

Standing Out From The Crowd

Written by Rudy on April 08, 2011 - 8:19 am -

As you know, and I have said this before, the Rudy Report has never had any improvements or changes to the site and style of the report since the launch of the website a few years ago, because it is impossible to improve something that is already perfect (CNN and Facebook still make changes, think about it), like the one today on "National Draw a Picture of a Bird Day" (yes, it's that time of the year again). Here's a quick quiz for you: Can you tell what's wrong with the picture below? Correct answer: The third girl from the right is wearing a white jacket! Didn't get the memo...

At the Masters, little boy Rory McIlroy has taken the lead with a solid 7 under round. The number one golfer in the world, Martin Kaymer, had a complete breakdown. LeBron James' mother got arrested in Miami for allegedly attacking a valet. Great family. Women ski jumping was finally approved as a competition at the Olympic Games. I can't think of anything more exciting...not! It looks like Real Madrid will face Barcelona 4 times in the next few weeks (Champions League twice, La Liga, and Cup). What a great set-up for soccer fans! In baseball, the Yankees beat Minnesota, while the Mets got absolutely obliterated by the Phillies. And, in the NHL, the Rangers lost against Atlanta, putting their playoff chances at risk.

The Rudy Report says Happy Birthday to Terry Porter, Mark Blundell, Alex Gonzalez, and British high-jumping legend Dalton Grant. On this day in 2008, the construction of the world's first building with wind turbines was completed in Bahrain.

You Are What You Wear

Written by Rudy on April 07, 2011 - 7:40 am -

The Rudy Report thinks that what you are wearing looks really nice, so keep it up and feel good for the rest of the day, today on "National No House Work Day." The Masters golf tournament is starting in Augusta this morning. Tiger Woods will have no chance to win. He also has no chance to win the award for "Most Stylish Player." That award will go to John Daly...

The German soccer league Bundesliga has taken out an additional 100 million Euro insurance policy against terrorist attacks as threat levels have been elevated.

And, in the NBA, the Knicks beat Philadelphia thanks to 31 points from Carmelo Anthony.

The Rudy Report says Happy Birthday to Franck Ribery, Tiki Barber, Ronde Barber, James "Buster" Douglas, and Italian fencing legend Edoardo Mangiarotti (who can ever forget his six Olympic gold medals from 1936 to 1960?). On this day in 1795, France adopted the meter as the basic measure of length. However, to this day, French men still use millimeters to measure their, uh, Napoleons...

This Rudy Report will make history, because for the first time ever, women (just kidding, don't be mad, women, we love you) will be allowed to read the report, today on "National Fresh Celery Day." Anyways, just wanted to share some tech news with you. Some smart scientists have invented a new kind of portable satellite system that will allow you to watch TV with your dawgs virtually anywhere...
