Tonight's the Night & Things I Think

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 In response to their outdated ad campaign "Its Jackets time my ass."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.

The F.C.C. f's up again...they are once again loosening up the rules on media market ownership:http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/18/business/media/18broadcast.html?_r=1&hp&oref=slogin

Bush and the Senate agree to cover each other's asses (and those of the eavesdropping telecoms):http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/10/17/AR2007101702438.html?hpid=topnews

With Rescue Me's future still up in the air, the very hot Andrea Roth, has joined the cast of Lost:http://community.tvguide.com/blog-entry/TVGuide-Editors-Blog/Ausiello-Report/Exclusive-Lost-Rescues/800024824?loc=interstitialskip

A fire breaks out at the Ed Sullivan Theater home of Late Show with David Letterman. Was Jay Leno in town?:http://wcbstv.com/local/ed.sullivan.david.2.376128.html

Sharpen your claws and grow out your mutton chops..Wolverine is coming to the big screen:http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117974247.html?categoryid=13&cs=1

Hard to believe the Joshua Tree is now 20 years old. Boy if you could go back and change time wouldn't you think about taking out Bono or preventing his birth? :http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003658805

Rolling Stone has posted a snippet of its interview with Bruce Springsteen. Because ya know he never gets any attention from the press:http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/16941890/bruce_springsteen_the_rolling_stone_interview

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.

For the one person, Al Gore I'm looking at you, who wanted it Live Earth comes out on DVD next month.

Gene Simmons is coming to late night tv:http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=83000

Ever wanted to know what the top Canadian albums of all time are? No? Me neither. But here they are and so help me there had better be at least 5 Helix records on there!:http://www.therecord.com/NASApp/cs/ContentServer?pagename=record/Layout/Article_Type1&c=Article&cid=1192691753165&call_pageid=1024322089000&col=1024322319351

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

What's on Gary Bettmans hit list?:http://melroserocks.blogspot.com/2007/10/gary-bettmans-hit-list.html

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.

First off - GO TRIBE! I am equally eager to see the BoSox knocked out of the playoffs. I don't think I've been this excited about baseball since I was in little league. Manny is a stupid asshole!

Speaking of stupid assholes - the CBJ's blew another game late in the third (reminds me of 2 seasons ago) Hitch should be allowed to publicly flog those responsible for hangin your goalie out to dry and losing a game that way. Maybe they'll get better, maybe it was just a fluke, maybe I'll start poopin' bricks of gold.

Bittney Spears, Billy Ray Cyrus, Bono - a bunch of "fevered egos tainting our collective unconscious and making us pay a higher psychic price than we could ever imagine." - Bill Hicks. (is rolling over in his grave right now.)

I have a co-worker, who shall remain nameless, who insists that the CBJ are a playoff caliber team. I am repulsed by his stupidity. This is an awful, awful team with no depth and considering how high they've picked in the draft, little talent.

I woke up in a good mood...then as the day progressed I became increasingly hateful. I call that a good day.

It must be something in the water as I'm pretty dang surly today too. My surlometer has redlined twice since 10:00 am.

I slept like crap and I feel as if I'm swimming in a sea full of retards and chum. Maybe finding a way to save money on my car insurance would help my mood.

TFO said...

Maybe beating your co-worker w/a sledgehammer would help you into a better mood. Plus it would help decrease the collective amount of stupidity that we all must deal with on a daily basis. Thus helping improve the environment.

Sadly, I think I'm just sleep deprvived from staying up to watch the playoffs. That or I've crossed the threshold and become a grumpy old man.
