Random musings

  • I've had enough of Joe Buck. First off, I'm tired of the long, lingering shots on the Budweiser logo at both stadiums, even in the damned skyscrapers with the Go Cards signs. I thought that the commercial about a home-run call was funny until I saw pre-printed signs with the slogan at Busch Stadium...and Fox showing them on purpose.
  • I'm amazed that some sort of protest hasn't occurred yet regarding Leon, the selfish athlete caricature now featured with the aforementioned Mr. Buck. Never mind that he's modelled on Barry Bonds, Terrell Owens, Deion Sanders, Joe Horn, and other real-life people; I'm just surprised. I guess hiring Jesse Jackson's sons as beer distributors buys you all kinds of favors.
  • Go Red Sox.

This man must be stopped.

Ever been at a movie where some asshole had a laser pointer?

This is worse.

Sure, he says he'd never, ever use it in a sports bar. The guy who invented the laser pointer never wanted it used in a movie theater, either. And at $14.99, this is just the right price for some loser who watched "Fight Club" in his mom's basement to cause real trouble.

Think about it this way. You're in a sports book. There's people with money involved. Then, without warning, during the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl, all of the televisions turn off.

Bedlam. Panic. Danger.

This man must be stopped. This is like the Asian carp which jump into boats. They were originally to get rid of a pest fish on a fish farm in Arkansas. They were never supposed to get out. There was a flood. Now Chicago has to build a zillion-dollar electric fence to keep them out.

This is madness. It needs to stop.
