I have no doubt... NONE...that the Indians will finish off the Boston Red Sox tonight. C.C. Sabathia is gonna pitch the game of his life and the Indians bats will do enough damage to Josh Beckett to win the game. Did you see Manny Ramirez comments yesterday that its no big deal for the Sox to be down 3 games to 1 and that if they don't pull it out its not the end of the world? Manny added that "there's always next year." Next year begins for Manny tonight.
Speaking of that special needs child named Manny, the kids at Homer Derby have put together a nice highlight reel of Manny grooming himself in the dugout. NICE:http://homerderby.com/
What kind of god allows Thurman Munson to die but keeps Manny Ramirez on the planet?
Rare that I have this much sports at the top of the post but your Columbus Blue Jackets set a new team record last night...for least attended home game in franchise history. 11,800 turned out to see the Jackets lose 3-2 to Dallas on a warm October night. Even more noteworthy is nowhere in today's Columbus Dispatch is the attendance low mentioned. The Jackets didn't sell out their home opener for the first time and twice have had crowds under 12,000. In response to their outdated ad campaign "Its Jackets time my ass."
I think if you didn't already you need to do yourself a favor and watch this weeks episode of South Park. BRILLIANT.

Get shut out on Hannah Montana tix? Don't fret...her shows are being filmed for the big screen. I knew we should have castrated Billy Ray Cyrus at the height of his fame before he could procreate.

ESPN has banned Jimmy Kimmel from Monday Night Football after he made fun of former announcer Joe Theismann on air this week. Good..now I have one more reason not to watch ESPN's crappy broadcast of an equally crappy game.
Speaking of ESPN sideline reporter Suzy Kolber is with child. No word as to who the baby daddy is but me thinks its either Tom Brady or Michelle Tafoya. I'm hoping its Joe Namath's baby.
For Suzy's sake, I hope that Tim McCarver isn't the father:http://deadspin.com/sports/it.s-math%21/tim-mccarver-is-bucking-conventional-wisdom-311939.php

Finally, ya gotta watch out for those Sears gold card holders:http://www.theonion.com/content/news_briefs/sears_gold_card_holder
A Few things I think:
I think the NFL is so full of lousy teams that the Cleveland Browns are gonna go 9-7 and make the playoffs.
I think Bengals coach Marvin Lewis loses a power struggle and gets fired.
I think McDonalds new Angus burger may be the most disappointing item ever added to their menu. It ain't no McDLT let me tell ya.
I think there oughta be a constitutional amendment keeping soft serve ice cream shacks open year round.
I think now that Sirius has a Grateful Dead channel they need to get rid of that Jam station.
I think I'd really like to see that new movie about Ian Curtis the lead singer of Joy Division but I'm wondering how many other one hit bands who had a lead singer commit suicide have biopics waiting to happen.
I think, to borrow from Bill Hicks, we should hunt and kill Britney Spears. Then take a day off of work to celebrate her demise.
I think Kiss will never record an album of new material again...for that I'm glad.
I think Todd Rundgren deserves to be in the rock n' roll hall of fame.
I think Madonna never rocked a day in her life and her nomination to the hall proves that its a joke.
I think pumpkin donuts are a sign of god in the universe. Pumpkin roll is also divine.
I think if I see Ellen DeGeneres weep over that damn dog again I'm gonna commit a hate crime. Against Ellen. Its a dog Ellen not an African orphan. Get over it.
I think before I die I'd like to understand Oprah's appeal. Then exploit it in order to conquer the world.
Thats all I've got. I'm off to club a hobo with a sledgehammer.
