Much to discuss today my friends. I'm still on a high from landing kickass Springsteen tix (despite ticketmaster.com's attempts to keep me from getting them) and the big Browns win yesterday. The Bucks proved me wrong and pulled out a nice win on Saturday. Toss in some quality time spent with my family (relatives visiting from Germany) and it was a nice weekend.
Ya know who didn't have a nice weekend? O.J. Simpson. America's favorite acquitted double murderer is now in jail on armed robbery charges. Tmz.com has an audio tape of the incident. Maybe this time the justice system will punish this clown:http://www.tmz.com/2007/09/17/o-j-confrontation-caught-on-tape/
Leave it to Alabama, the state where its always 1864 and resegregation is back in vogue:http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/17/education/17schools.html?_r=1&hp&oref=slogin
Alabama is so backwards it makes Iran, where its always the year 1350, seem progressive. You know Iran...its the country we're going to war with next. In fact, we've already identified 2,000 targets to bomb:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2007/09/16/wiran116.xml

No one loves television more than I do. I could spend the rest of my life plopped on a couch in front of the tv. So it pains me to see that the night that is supposed to honor television always turns into a suckfest:http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20813020/
How does James Spader take home an Emmy over James Gandolfini? Makes no damn sense.
EW ranks the high and low moments of the show:http://www.ew.com/ew/gallery/0,,20045108_20045120_20057272,00.html

Please have a laugh at the expense of Lou Gramm and his band. Dear God they look old and awful:http://www.melodicrock.com/
Rhino Bucket, the band that once featured a transgendered drummer, is going out on the road with former Ac/Dc drummer Simon Wright. The boys will make two Ohio stops including a date October 6th with American Dog:http://rhinobucket.com/gigs.html
The Indians magic number to win the Central Division is 9 games. The 2nd place Tigers come into Cleveland for a 3 game series tonight. A sweep would all but end the pennant race with the Tigers 4 1/2 games out.
It upsets me that Jim Thome gets such a lousy reception whenever he returns to Jacobs Field. The former Indians firstbaseman, now a DH for the White Sox, hit his 500th homer yesterday:http://deadspin.com/sports/daily-closer/one-sweet-afternoon-for-jim-thome-300416.php
Believe it or not, the NHL returned over the weekend. I have my fantasy team draft tonight and I got raped for 10 bucks at Barnes and Noble yesterday for a copy of the Hockey News season preview. Your Columbus Blue Jackets took to the ice yesterday for their first preseason tilt. New year, new jersey, same Jackets....lost the game 3-1 and lost their best player David Vyborny to injury:http://dispatch.com/live/content/sports/stories/2007/09/17/jackets17.ART_ART_09-17-07_C1_EK7U3S9.html?sid=101
What a game those Browns and Bengals played yesterday.....lots of fun. The Brady Quinn era may have been delayed for awhile after this one:http://www.ohio.com/sports/mcmanamon/9825107.html
More crap as it happens..........
