Kentucky Fried Garbage

  • The Monologue:
    • I just found out that Isiah Thomas will be coaching Florida International University this season. Has a college coach ever driven his school into bankruptcy? It's going to happen.
    • They've finally decided on how to test Caster Semanya. They've contracted with Paul Hogan to do a genital grab like he did in Crocodile Dundee.
    • Johan Santana is done for the year with bone chips in his elbow. It's gotten so bad for the Mets that Dr. James Andrews is throwing out the first pitch at the next home game.
    • It's gotten so bad for the Mets that they're rethinking their choice of Tommy John as pitching coach.
    • The Mets have been hurt so much that they've resorted to only having drunken one-night stands with players instead of signing them to contracts.
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • Really good Entourage episode this week -- Bob Saget is always great on the show and Scott Caan did a good job as well. The gun humor was a little cheesy.
    • Weeds, which I mistakenly watched after Entourage, was not as good. It was okay, I guess. Just not sure where they're going for the season finale and how resolved things might be. I don't know if I can take another season of this same story line.
    • Baseball trivia question from MLB Tonight this evening. Who is the active career leader in doubles? I guessed Todd Helton. The answer is below the video.
  • Random Music Video:
    • We all love fried chicken sandwiches, right? Especially with bacon and cheese, right? But that pesky bread is so bland! So, what if we had a sandwich that had fried chicken as the bread? That sounds so good!!!

Baseball trivia answer: Ivan Rodriguez.
