The Crying Game
Wait, wait, wait...
Are you trying to tell me that noted Toledo native and sexpot Katie Holmes is a man?
Really, I don't think there could be any other explanation.
(By the way, I'm not dead. I've just been really busy.)
Sports, incredibly uninsightful insights, and a glimpse into life in the worst state in the Union.
Wait, wait, wait...
Former NFL all-pro LB Sam Mills died earlier today.
The college of cardinals failed to elect a pope on the first ballot tonight. Now, according to ancient church tradition, they'll stop voting for the night and drive over to St. Thomas Aquinas Middle School in Rome for a fish fry and bingo.
A man was shot in the lobby of a Detroit TV station this afternoon.
NCAA Football 2006: It's faaaaaaantastic.
How the hell did I manage to obsess about the name "Ron Mexico" for weeks and not once stop to think that, "hey, that would be an awesome name for a band!" (There should be a question mark somewhere at the end of this sentence, but it's been a long time since I did any actual journalistic writing, so I'll be damned if I can remember where it goes.)
"Sweet! Gas is down to $2.15 a gallon."
It's April 15th, which in the TV business means it's time to plop a reporter in front of the Post Office and ask people why they waited until the last possible second to file their taxes this year.
An update to my favorite story of 2005: The NFL has banned sale of Ron Mexico jerseys.
USA Today published a list of some celebrity blogs (in case you're wondering what Rosie O'Donnell has been up to, or the old dude from Lord of the Rings. I know I have.
The Masters lived up to its billing; that was quite a back 9 plus 1. But let's make one thing perfectly clear-- this does not mean that "the old Tiger is back!"
What a total mess. Terrible clutch hitting (1-for-9 with guys in scoring position last night), crappy pitching (another spectacular Braden Looper outing-- at least he got someone out this time), and a disturbing lack of interest displayed (Carlos Beltran, who just signed a 47-year contract worth about as much as the GNP of Luxembourg, jogged down the baseline while the Braves second baseman kicked around a ball and then threw him out easily).
I overheard an incredibly interesting conversation during the game today. Some guy behind me was talking about how he's won a bunch of money betting on baseball. His "system" is simple: put $10 on the underdog in each game (playing the money line). That's it.
Just got back from my first baseball game of the year at Comerica Park. (Watching, not playing) The temperatures were in the mid-60s with just a slight breeze and nothing but sun. In a secondary development, the Tigers won 11-1 as well.
I've spent a lot of time on various college websites in recent weeks, and noticed a number of them have "testimonials" from current students, like this one from the University of Louisville.
So Peter Jennings has lung cancer, but he plans to keep working on World News Tonight.
Also, you probably shouldn't sleep with a dude named Ron Mexico.
The dude who plays "Turk" on Scrubs and Sean May from UNC. This has bothered me for months. (Granted, Turk looks a lot more athletic)
Braden Looper pitching for New York
For a superficially meaningless Sunday in April, today combines two of my absolute favorite moments of the year.
Incredibly, the pope is still hanging on. If you believe the reports that were coming out yesterday afternoon, coupled with the medical diagnosis, he's had a more improbable run than Yassar Arafat and the West Virginia basketball team combined.
