Another Speed Post

Margaret will have an actual good post when she gets back from David's Wedding. I haven't heard yet how the actual wedding went today, but I'm sure updates will be coming soon. Without Margaret to listen to my ramblings, you, faithful blog reader, will have to fill in. Some thoughts:

Holy Crap Cubs. You knew Zambrano is prone to melting down in high pressure situations. You do not run that guy out for a must-win game 2. Looks like it's going to be 101 years. Sorry.

No one lives on Main Street. No one. We should all be looking for a bailout for Downing St. or Oak Ave. or, my personal favorite, John Elway Blvd. You know what's on Main Street? Businesses. Big ones.

My Name is Earl is no longer funny. That show has nuked the fridge. It's done.

$85,000,000,000 divided by 200,000,000 is not $425,000 per person.

We all hate Washington. No one is going to change it as President. Upon what, exactly, are you basing any belief that one of these candidates is going to fundamentally change the system? The 35 year history of the career politician who has done what he had to to stay in the game, or the 10 year history of the career politician who has done what he had to to stay in the game? The idea of the Thrilla from Wasilla making a difference is only slightly less ludicrous than Joe Biden. And another thing: Joe Biden?

Assuming Utah takes care of Oregon State tonight (not looking good right now, but I can hope), and BYU takes care of business for the next couple of months, we could be looking at an absolutely epic U/BYU matchup.

The Rays changing their name from the Devil Rays and then becoming the story of the league has the potential to be the greatest sports metaphor for repentance ever. I need this to happen. Go Rays!

On the flip side - Scott Boras = pure evil. Someone needs to write a Screwtape parody with Scott Boras explaining to a new member of his Agency how to ruin a team's season and alienate a fanbase while making millions of dollars personally. I nominate Ken Jennings.

Tina Fey is hilarious. 30 Rock is definitely the best comedy on television. By a lot.

Tom Brady should win the MVP for getting injured this year. The Patriots went from a Super Bowl contender to a team that could win 7 or 8 games and no one would be surprised. Randy Moss may be soliciting a hit on Bernard Pollard on Craigslist in the next couple of months.

That's all I got. I'm going to go sleep now. Because I can.

We completely agree with you on 'My Name is Earl' & on 30Rock. 30 Rock rocks! while Earl is just done(I thought so last season too).

what is 85,000,000,000 divided by 200 million(i didn't even check the math)??? I was really banking on that theory!!! I already had my $297,500 all earmarked, so are you telling me this isn't going to work????

How come you don't write much any more? We miss you.
