It's Monday, here's the 'Airwolf' intro

Monday is the most painful reminder of Monday. That's how I think about it.

With that being said, what's a better way of nixing those Monday morning blues than listening and watching to the intro of a great 1980s TV show. In this case "Airwolf."

For those of you who might not remember, "Airwolf" followed the adventures of Stringfellow Hawke (Stringfellow?) and Dominic Santini. From then on, it gets really, really complicated. More complicated than I remember it being. Long story short, they fly a supersonic helicopter developed by an arm of the CIA.

The concept of a helicopter that can break the sound barrier is a little silly. Maybe full-on stupid. But for an 8-year-old it was incredible.

The show also had a Nintendo game as well, which was next to impossible. "Airwolf" the game was not nearly as good as "Airwolf" the show. Landing the copter was next to impossible and for being such an impressive government creation, it sure lacked in terms of ammunition and arsenal.

The Internet: It's like your parents. It cares for you, feeds you, lets you sleep in its bed when you're awake at night... it's always there. Our solemn mission at "Thank you, Internet" is to give it a phone call once in a while, compliment it on its watercolor drawings and buy it birthday cards - metaphorically speaking, of course. Your job is to sit back and enjoy our frenzied attempts to celebrate said Internet, in all it's weirdness, utility and blatant stupidity. By the end of your visit, you too will be saying, "Thank you, Internet."
