It's been a while since I rambled aimlessly in this dusty little corner of the internet, so basically it's time to type and see what pops out of the end of my fingers. From the look of that first sentence, I'm not holding out much hope for this post, but let's give it a shot anyway.
* TO complains - via Twitter - about Tony Romo and his former offensive coordinator and this is news? Really? At this point isn't this the equivalent of reporting that Hitler hates Jews? Or that Greg Robinson is a bad football coach? It reminds me of a comedian doing jokes about the shopping cart with one bad wheel or airline food. TO is a hack.
* Every time I hear Pat Kirwan on Sirius NFL radio his voice reminds me of Alec Baldwin doing his Tony Bennet impression on SNL. Pat is really, really great.
* My girlfriend has little patience for the NBA playoffs. Trying to explain to her that this thing will drag out to the middle of June is the equivalent of trying to tell Rosie O'Donnell there's no more chicken wings on the all you can buffet. It's not a pleasant experience.
* David Ortiz sucks - this amuses me to no end. The constant coverage of him sucking - that's getting a little old.
* Anquan Boldin fires Drew Rosenhaus. Now if only other other client would follow suit....
* It was nice to see Phil Hughes put together a solid outing. He may be the biggest beneficiary of the Yankees recent win streak. With the team near the top of the standings, the team can let him continue to develop without the pressure of having to make up a lot of ground. I also have a feeling that if Hughes struggles for the next 5 years I'll still believe he can develop into a quality starter. I am totally in the tank for Phil Hughes and I have absolutely no idea why.
* If Tom Brady and Brett Favre were on Flight 815, the media would have found that island in about 6 hours.
* I think Doug Marrone could probably crush your skull with his bare hands - he knows it, you know it, no one talks about it -- and that's the way Doug likes it.
* Here's something that always bugged me about the "What Would You Do for a Klondike Bar" campaign. If I really wanted a Klondike Bar, you know what I would do? I'd buy a f*cking Klondike Bar. Is the premise that these things are super expensive? Or that they can only be found on Mars? What would you do for a Porsche - now, that makes sense - a $2 ice cream bar - not so much.
* A fun debate broke out in the comment section on this post on the Big Lead about which 1980s girls were hot. Put me in the Elizabeth Shue camp.
And, I'll end with a great video for "WNBA Live, 2008" that apparently has been around for a while, but what the hell, it's new to me.
