I asked of my reflection, tell me what is there to do?
ESPN's telecast of the Padres/Cardinals game had talk of Brian Hunter, Dave McCarty, and Mark Carrion.
Who are they?
Guys who threw left-handed, yet batted on the right side of the plate.
Yeah, they're TLBR's.
And you know the game was a blowout if Jon Sciambi and Dusty Baker were talking about those sorts of things.
The least they could do is give the website a plug. Or, the least I could do would be to update the damn thing once in a while.
Can Barry Bonds please hit this damned 756th home run tonight, so we can begin the process of forgetting this colossal POS?
Seriously. Let's just end the hype.
Hit the shot, so that Barry can just be an overpaid member of a really bad baseball team. ESPN can stop cutting in on all his chemically-fueled and stop with the Barry saturation.
Speaking of saturation, the 2008 Presidential race has already got to that point.
Having this many debates, this much coverage this far out of the November '08 elections is akin to the NFL playing 19 preseason games before playing 16 regular season games.
By the time December rolls around, I won't want ANY of the candidates.
But, in case you haven't been following it too closely, here's the official TLBR 2008 Presidential Candidate List, So Far:DemocratsHillary Clinton
: Toronto's expensive, but I could definitely live there
: Not exactly Nixon when it comes to international affairs, but I'm still listeningChris Dodd
: Connecticut Senators haven't fared too well in Presidential elections since, um, ever. (and yes, I know W was born in the Nutmeg State.)
: One John Edwards talks to dead people. Another was a Senator and John Kerry's running mate in 2004. Perhaps the first John Edwards can talk to the second John Edwards' campaign hopes. Because they're just about dead
: I hope he gets it, just so he can start the inaugural address talking about the fact that he has a dream. Or that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. Or ich bin ein berliner. Or he could copy an NFL Sunday notebook from a Tacoma, Washington newspaper.Mike Gravel
: He was the Mayor of Cleveland. Which is better than being the Mayor of Cincinnati (Jerry Springer).
: Playing the role of the Governor of New Mexico, Oliver Platt
: Two quick facts on Brownie. One, he's from Kansas. Two, he is a hatemonger. 0-for-2.
: Why bother? Make high six figures on CNN, write books, and never be wrong.
: I'm still listening. But I also remember that on Sept. 10, 2001, you were widely seen as an asshole.
: He wants the troops out of Iraq yesterday. You're welcome at my house, Chuck.
: He has a permanent shit-eating grin, lost about 150 lbs., and can't make any sort of point without thanking or referencing the Baby Jesus. Can you believe he's from Arkansas? Yeah, seriously. Arkansas
: He's doing a great job for the Yankees since being called up from AAA Scranton. Oh, wait, that's Shelley Duncan. Nevermind
: Just stop. Just. Stop
: Beano Cook predicted he'd win four Heismans as the quarterback of Notre Dame. Man, was he way off. Oh, wait. That was Ron Paulus. Nevermind
: His hair never moves, and he comes from a family where the men are named Mitt and Tad. Whatever happened to manly names, like Rod or Brutus? Or Newt?
: Get a load of this shampooing guy. He has two simple platforms with one singular message: Brown people are bad. If the terrorists attack the U.S. again, he wants to bomb Mecca.
(great effing idea, that'll take the Islam v. Zion interpersonal relationship to the next level...) And in the meantime, while we're waiting for the next attack, he wants to keep Mexicans out. Tom Tancredo, my friends, is an ass
.Fred Thompson: The guy never lost a major case when serving as district attorney in New York City from 2002-07. Plus, you can tell he's a patient guy, having to deal with the insufferable ADA Jack McCoy all the time. Wait, that wasn't real? Nevermind
Former Republican governor of Wisconsin. I used to live in Wisconsin. And I can safely say that in my time there, I met very few folks who were Presidential.
Don't let Chone Figgins get on base.
Bobby Kielty's signing by the Red Sox effectively ends the run of Wily Mo Pena in a Sox uniform, I fear.
One sentence that I can live without on a daily basis: "For the first time tonight, let's check in with Tina Cervasio."
. Back in rehab.
I guess it's better than driving onto someone's lawn in your SUV and passing out, pissing yourself. Not that I've ever done that.
(I don't own an SUV.)
that's all for tonight. Sleepy time.
