  • What I'm Watching/Listening To/Reading:
    • The St. Louis offense. Oy. I find it hard to believe that there's a worse team in the league. At least the Dolphins may outscore someone at some point.
    • Bill Maher had a funny bit this week on sex toys in Alabama. Good ol' state #49!
    • Did I miss ESPN firing Bill Simmons and he went back to only doing Boston Sports Guy stuff?
  • Random Thoughts/Links:
    • I said I would post every day, so I am, even if I don't have much to say.
    • Pretty deep bullpen there, Boston. Pretty clutch, Sabathia and Carmona.
    • Looks like LT has the first Bundy of the year. Meanwhile, Stephen Jackson is sitting on his couch, wearing leopard print and eating bon-bons.
  • Daily Rant:
    • Someone throws a beer on Ron Artest and hell breaks out. A couple of rednecks rush a first base coach. A fan reaches out and grabs the hat off of a player in the bullpen at Wrigley. All of these fans were dealt with by the law. But they are in no way a few minority wackos. Today, some drunk fans, while walking into the stadium, yelled obscenities at Rams fans. Late in the game, a fan to my left almost started a fight while yelling derogatory names about his perceived sexual orientation of another fan. This behavior isn't okay in daily life, so why is it okay in or around a stadium? The cops don't allow fighting, but fighting words (an actual legal term) are just fine. Maybe alcohol needs to be banned, as has been suggested. Maybe people need to take personal responsibility for themselves (yeah, good luck with that). If one pays to get into a movie or to go to a play or a museum or a zoo or a plane, and so on, they don't think they have the right to act like an extra from Mad Max, so why at a sporting event?
