I never watch political stuff, the last time I watched a president speak was Bush’ speech in late September, 2001 and then the SOTU in January of 2002. I’ve tried to watch that stuff most of my adult (…errr… near adult) life and can never take more than about 5 seconds of some asshole lying at my face and expecting me to take it.
Case in point, last night’s debate. I don’t watch debates, I read Stephen Green’s drunkblog.
6:21PM Obama: The strong economy is why gas is up to $4
I would have thrown the dog through the TV if I had been watching that. I’ve been reading that the debate was close and maybe Obama won.
What the fuck did Romney say to lose to someone who could say stuff like that? Did he ask Glenn Reynolds for a smoothie?
Eh, how about some sports stuff?
I was a life-long Mets fan. The Mets tried to compete with the Yankees in the “Buy a Championship” game. They both apent $2mil per win, the problem being that the Yankees payroll was $200 mi (100 wins) while the Mets was $150mil (75 wins).
After the last strike I had pretty much given up on baseball. I watched the playoffs and the occasional game, but that’s it. Then the Nationals came to DC and I became a fan. They were great. Their games were exciting, and then the lost it in the 8th and 9th. But you knew they were going to lose so afterward, you just went to bed.
This year, they played great. It sucked. I had to worry about what Atlanta was doing, what Cincy was doing, what the fucking Nats were doing. To lose the way they did was crushing. Up 6-0 in the 3rd, then 7-5 in the 9th and I could just hear the closer think, “Watch me strike him out him with my powerful perplexing psychedelic pachydermic percussion pitch!” just before he gave up 4 runs.
Sigh. I guess I could become a Dbacks fan, but they’re too bad, their games are just no fun to watch. Even when they win their games are boring and annoying.
Yay! The regular refs are back!!!!! Throwing 10 times as many flags as the replacement refs and blowing the same-percentage! I saw them screw the Jets on an instant replay call, that was funny. The Jets got their butts kicked that game so it didn’t matter, but that was still funny.
The refs screwed a bunch of a teams, not calling pass-intereference when it was blatant, calling some bullshit pass interference (Monday night had an egregious example) that changed the outcome of the game.
I want the replacements back. Sure they screwed up the rules once in a while, but they kept their dam flags in their dam pockets and let people play. As for the Green Bay game, who doesn’t think the regular refs wouldn’t have fucked that call up too?
Show of hands, how many of you know there’s a hockey strike? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
Dear NHL, your sports’ popularity is about on par with the Westminster Dog Show, nobody realizes you’re on strike. What’s more, nobody gives a shit. Didn’t you figure anything out after the last strike? Eh, at least the Islanders aren’t eliminated from the playoffs yet this way.
Basketball. Who cares what a bunch of “Me-Me-Me” Thugs do? I used to like basketball. Now I can’t take it. And if I hear one more idiot say Kobe is as good as Jordan was, well, I’m gonna have to kick the dog. Kobe might be as good as Jordan was, but Kobe is nowhere near as dominating over the other players as Jordan was. Every great player in the league had a rivalry with Jordan. Jordan, of course, didn’t have a rivalry with anybody. That’s like Oklahoma State having a rivalry with Tulsa Community College. Hell, he made Scotty Pippin look good. (look at the year Jordan played baseball. The Bulls were not even “also-ran”s, they were “also-stumbled”)
So another post without a theme. Needs hottasery.
She’s still hot. I mean, not hot enough to want to post a current pic, but I’d still do her.
Man oh man, Marilyn is still the hottest even Damn the fucking Kennedys.
