Mixed Bag of Rants and Uninformed Opinions

  • Barry Bonds feels picked on, poor baby. In a way he's right. Millions of people abuse all sorts of illicit substance every hour of every day and don't receive the scrutiny Bonds does. But most of them haven't broken any long standing sports records either.
  • I watched a football game on Sunday. Apparently the New England Patriots are a pretty good team and they defeated the Colts, who are also supposed to be pretty good, but not as good as the Pats. Two questions, when did the Colts leave Baltimore and why do they call it football when they almost always use their hands?
  • A-Rod wants to go to the Red Sox. Screw him, let him go to to the Dodgers or any other team stupid enough to pay him on his quest for individual achievement.
  • Scott Kazmir of the hapless Devil Rays may be available, he'd look good in Boston grey.
  • The Hollywood writers are going on strike, and still the earth revolves around the sun.
  • The Blasters are great band with an even better name.
  • Johan Santana might be available as well. I hear he's a pretty good pitcher.
  • Who said this: I want to be very, very clear, however: I understand and agree with the analysis of the problem. There is an imminent threat. It manifested itself on 9/11. It's real and grave. It is as serious a threat as Stalinism and National Socialism were. Let's not pretend it isn't. BONO High Light to read.
  • UCONN Football is ranked in the top twenty, who'd of thunk it?
  • Nicole Atkins impressed the hell out of me on Letterman. I can't remember the last time that happened. I'd like to think she'll be the next big thing, but she's far too unique and perhaps too "real" for pop diva stardom. Give her listen by clicking on the record, top right. Dollars to doughnuts she'll be in a David Lynch film before it's all over.
  • I saw Apocalypto again. What an impressive movie. I can't wait for the Broadway musical version to come out, I am so there.
  • Four Days until No Country For Old Men, speaking of being so somewhere. Make sure you see it, freindo, and be sure to bring the more squeamish members of your family. I'm sure they'll thank you for it.
