Here’s just a couple people that need to shut their mouths, and then some other stuff:
LaDainian Tomlinson–First of all, LT is nasty, one of the best football players we’ll ever see, and a great guy who has been recognized by the NFL for his work in the community. Thus, he was once my favorite player. But the dude needs to SHUT UP. Stop being hypocrytical about the Pats. They danced on your turf, maybe not the most tasteful move, but doesn’t Shawn Merriman do that dance after EVERY BIG PLAY HE MAKES?! Yes, he does, so shhh. Next, the Pats just got caught trying to video tape the Jets coaching staff, which is wack and embarasses me and most Pats fans immensely, but I’m sure that lots of other teams do stuff like that too, and I believe the aforementioned Shawn Merriman got caught taking steroids last season as well, so once again, just stop talking, please.

Random kid in class–This kid in my first class this year sat down in front of me and then tiraded to some poor soul on the other end of the line about how “unconscionable” it was that Red Sox fans parked along Commonwealth Avenue to go to their “silly little game,” thus preventing him from easily finding a free parking space for his 5 minute commute, and forcing him to pay $20 to park. Well, the Red Sox and their silly little game bring milllllllllions of dollars and infinite happiness to the region, of which you probably are only a 4 year member. Your needless driving to class from three miles away probably brings nothing more than unnecessary pollution to Boston, so you might want to re-think your argument.
James Posey was a nice addition to the Celtic roster, he fit more of a need than Reggie Miller would have. There could still be more to come mid-season though.
Check out the women’s World Cup, it’s one of the few women’s sporting events that gets me, and the marketing for the team has been great, don’t see how you couldn’t be pumped up to watch them.
Kanye’s new album is SO DISAPPOINTING. The guy is a legend, and he came with some weak sauce on this CD. Like Will Ferrell’s follow-up movies after ‘Old School.’ Damnit.
Interesting how MLB has decided that the team with the best record in each league gets to choose between playing with more or less rest in the first round of the play-offs. Basically meaning that your number 1 and 2 starters can pitch 4 of the 5 games on full rest or 3 of 5 on full rest. This has never happened before, and is intriguing. If I’m the Sox I’m definitely taking the lesser rest and throwing my #4 against the other team’s #4, because that’s where the strength of the team lies. Angels and Indians would choose the opposite, most likely.
Oh yeah, and the Sox are playing the Yanks this weekend. Could be interesting, I guess.
