All this damn rain has led to an infestation of mosquitoes. I mowed the yard Saturday morning and got munched on like I was some kinda skeeter buffet. I don't think one part of my body was ignored. I'm sure I now have a raging case of West Nile.
I'm now in my 9th day of not smoking. I miss it from time to time but I'm doing better than I thought I would with it. Addiction is any easy thing to overcome if you put your mind to it. Speaking of addiction, let's talk about Britney Spears (briefly).
Did you catch the zonked out white trash stripper's "performance" at the MTV Awards last night? Let the Britney death watch begin now. If you're too stoned to lip sync than you have no business being on a stage. Whoever decided her body was right for that outfit needs to be taken out and shot. Bikini's and beer belly's don't mix. The Today Show this morning ran a piece on how awful Ms. Spears performance was. How could anyone expect it to be anything less than awful? Fearless prediction Britney will have choked to death on vomit by Christmas. I didn't watch the whole show but no surprise it was awful:http://theenvelope.latimes.com/music/env-et-vmas10sep10,0,1780777.story

I hear Kid Rock and Tommy Lee got into a fight at the VMA over who was a bigger loser. Boys, just sit back and talk about what you have in common...the lack of talent, the sex with Pam Anderson, the hepatitis....
If I hear one more Ohio State fan gloat over Michigan being 0-2 I'm gonna perform American History X style dental treatment on them. Sure U of M sucks, but have you watched OSU play (oh wait, they've been on the Big 10 Network so you probably haven't)? They are AWFUL. Look for the Bucks to take an azz kickin' from Washington this weekend.

The new Osama bin Laden video pans Britney's performance at the VMA's or mentions death to the infidels. I'm not sure which:http://breakingnews.nypost.com/dynamic/stories/B/BIN_LADEN_VIDEO?SITE=NYNYP&SECTION=HOME

Nobody does a better job with covering the Browns than the Plain Dealer's Tony Grossi and the Akron Beacon Journal's Pat McManamon. McManamon does a nice job today of summarizing the sad state of affairs that is the Cleveland Browns:http://www.ohio.com/sports/9684472.html
