I'm not in too bad of a mood today considering the Indians lost last night. Sure it sucks to lose 7-1. It sucks knowing you had the chance to send the Red Sox and their annoying fanbase into the long cold winter and blew it. I take solace from this today...Eric Wedge's brain fart or if you will, brain wedgie, of sending a tired C.C. Sabathia out to start the 7th inning may turn out to be a good thing. When the Tribe went to the World Series in 1995 and 1997 it won on the road and in game 6 of the ALCS. So bring on game 6, bring on Fenway and the Green Monster. That neocon Curt Schilling deserves another ass kicking anyway.

Every episode of the Jon Stewart run of the Daily Show can now be viewed online. I guess the Craig Kilborn era has been erased. Shame for me cuz I'm in the minority who enjoyed the show more when Kilby was at the wheel. I miss 5 Questions:http://tvdecoder.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/10/18/daily-show-archives-online/index.html?hp
Speaking of Comedy Central, Stephen Colbert will be a guest on Meet the Press on Sunday. Thats right..with a war going on , oil about to hit 100 bucks a barrel, and with everything else of importance, the Sunday news shows are devoting air time to a comedian.

Leave it to the Yankees to try and rob the Indians and Red Sox of the spotlight. The Joe Torre era appears to be over after Torre rejected a one year offer. The NYC tabloids act as if this story is as big as the 9/11 attacks. Lets face facts, the only skill required to manage the talent laden Yankees is the ability to tune out their douchebag owner and the aborted fetuses who call themselves Yankees fans. With a 200 million dollar payroll, its not rocket science to fill out the lineup card:http://www.nypost.com/seven/10192007/sports/yankees/torre_story_reaches_end.htm
