101 Years And Counting

  • What I'm Watching/Listening To/Reading:
    • Heck of a last swing, Soriano. The Cubs choke again. I think they may need Pastor Thomas Muthee to lay hands on them.
    • Last week, the debate sketch on SNL made fun of both candidates equally. This week, they made fun of both candidates but not so equally. I really could have just watched them do that for the entire 90 minutes of the show.
    • E.T. happened to be on HBO Family today and since it has been at least a decade since I've watched it, I had to go with it. I don't have to tell you that it's one of the very best movies ever made, but it drives home how great Spielberg was before he even started making the big Oscar movies like Saving Private Ryan or Schindler's List. How about a run from the mid '70s to the early '80s of Jaws, Close Encounters, Raiders, and E.T.?
  • Random Thoughts/Links:
    • Jackie Mason does a very unfunny response to Sarah Silverman's Great Schlep video. What has Barack Obama ever done? Well, here's one thing: he didn't make Caddyshack II!
    • Phillies-Dodgers should be a heck of a series. Ditto Rays-Sox.
  • Your List Sucks!: Top 5 Teams in the NFL after Week 4:
    • 5. N.Y. Giants -- Let's see what they can do coming out of the bye and without Burress for a week.
    • 4. Buffalo -- I'm still not 100% sold on them because of their offense, but they should be able to take the division.
    • 3. Carolina -- They are explosive with Steve Smith, great in the red zone with Jonathan Stewart, and they still have that defense.
    • 2. Washington -- Have to give them their props. Campbell is playing his ass off and Santana Moss has become an elite receiver. Their defense, sparked by 7th round pick Chris Horton, is opportunistic.
    • 1. Tennessee -- I'll see them live tomorrow when they play the surprising Ravens. That defense is just nasty and they can run the ball.
