Solution?

I think I might be okay with the visiting team winning every game of the World Series, as the Phillies did last night, soundly spanking the Yanks in front of the poor home fans in the Bronx. That way, it's assured that for every game of the series there's a stadium full of miserable Yankee or Phillie fans.

The Haunted Baseball Season

That never ends.

I know it's completely and utterly irrational to think that the entire 2009 season has been designed and inflicted by the Baseball Gods as one long, excruciating, festering and gaping maw of an open wound in the soul of every New York Metropolitans fan, but COME ON!!! The Yankees and the Phillies??? Two teams it's impossible for Met fans to root for??? And now it's dividing Met fans as passionately as any issue in this godforsaken season??? Shane Victorino or Derek Jeter??? The little league helmet vs. Captain Smirk??? Shoot me now, shoot me now.

So. Yes. I know it's completely and utterly irrational, but so is being a *&)%$#-ing Mets fan.

A *&%$#!@ pox on both yer #*%!!$ houses, ya @!#%-ing *%#$!s....

Never mind

Looks like Rush the Magic Windbag's bid to buy into the Rammies is dead in the water. Sigh of relief. But I guess you still gotta wonder about his pals who dropped him, if they ever had the poor judgement to ask him in on the deal in the first ol' place.

Rush and the Rams

If Rush Limbaugh successfully buys into the Rams, I will officially renounce my lifelong status as a Ram fan. I will toss the ashes of my Jack Youngblood and Wendell Tyler football cards into the East River and make a choice betwixt the Jets and Jints.

Meatballs

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: great fun! A lot like Up, in that it's more than just funny, it's big and grand oldstyle adventure. And I think it's as good as Up, no question.

I've never seen the book, so I didn't have any preconceived notions. On that note, looking forward to seeing Wild Things, just not sure if it will be too intense for my five-year old. He usually will watch anything, but we had to leave twenty minutes into Ponyo, which had some pretty scary water monster images.

blood test

Two things I don't want to hear from the person about to draw blood from me:

"This is a really confusing vein!"

"I don't know what's wrong with me; I'm just dropping everything today!"
