This means nothing

There are maybe 29 people in the country working today. I'm one of them. Woe. O/U on # of comments today is 59.

LeBron's gonna be a Bull

MLB All-Star teams are announced and once again there's controversy with the picks. I've been complaining about Votto getting snubbed but he'll end up filling in for an injured player, which is basically what happens every year. Players get overlooked for other players every year because every team needs a representative (dumber rule than "winner of AS game gets home field advantage"), but for the most part most of them end up on the team because players are injured or end up not being available to play in the game. So it's always pretty much much ado about nothing. But it's human nature to bitch about things, so there's that. Oh, and the AL will keep the NL winless streak going this year.

Kobayashi is starved for attention, apparently.

Terrible NY parenting

LP loves him some fireworks

RIP Dontrelle's career. If you can't pitch for the DBags, you can't pitch for anyone.

Since noone will be here to read this, that's all I'm gonna write.

nice post, freak

The Rev said...

Hope your 4th was good.

I'd stay and chat, but I have things to go do, like smoke a cigar and have a late breakfast.

That oughta take me about three hours. And by that, I mean the breakfast. The cigar will be another hour.

it's only fitting that keith had to work today since he hates fireworks and is a communist

JFreak said...

Todd Packer said...

Something like this. it works pretty good and the propane makes it real easy to maintain an even temps ::hank hill voice::

I went to her personal blog; it was actually pretty good (although I mostly skimmed; the posts were super long)

having the 4th of July fall on a Sunday is grate. It's like a 2 day celebration.

Congress should pass a law that the 4th of July must fall on Sunday every year (s)

BLUE said...

The Rev said...

Got tix for the Phillies vs Braves tonight. ESPN game.

My plan is to run on the field and get tasered at some point just to get Beth's attention.

The Rev said...

They might need more than one taser to get me down

Keef said...

You know you ain't running anywhere

Keef said...

"They might need more than one taser to get me down"

The Rev said...

Fair point.

My plan is to stroll casually onto the field and get tasered at some point just to get Beth's attention.

"Votto hasn’t just been better than Ryan Howard in every single way possible — but he’s been A LOT better in every single way possible. His on-base percentage is 61 points better, his slugging percentage is 68 points better, his OPS+ is 35 points better, his defense at first base has been about three or four grades better, even his TEAM has been better, which isn’t necessarily relevant to the conversation but certainly can’t hurt the guy.

So, comparing half-season to half-season, this is no contest, Votto is a slam-dunk, no-doubt choice over Howard. But is that really what the All-Star Game is about? You might think so. I might think so. But someone else might think, no, the All-Star Game is about having the biggest stars perform in front of the fans. And over the last five years, Ryan Howard has been a much bigger star than Joey Votto — he has won an MVP and finished second in another year, he has hit more home runs than any player in baseball, he has led the league in RBIs three times, and he has been a central figure in the Phillies’ renaissance. Fan voting is obviously a flawed way of looking at things, but it is true that 500,000 more people voted for Howard than Votto."

"I think, that if you had some sort of American Idol call-in to determine who fans would like to see start in the All-Star Game, Strasburg would have a pretty good shot

I cannot believe, incidentally, that baseball has missed out on this call-in opportunity.** I predict that the NBA will be the first to have a call-in show for the All-Star Game. There could be two shows built around it on ESPN. This will happen, I’ll bet"


-that would suck

Keef said...

I don't have a problem with Howard being in the game. I have a problem with Omar Infante being in the game

Meiz said...

"splain"


Long story short- She starts french culinary school tomorrow. And its kind of a BIG deal because she quit her incredible job w/Harley Davidson to do this. You need ID to get into the building. She lost her ID. No big deal, passport will work. Welp, just sent her passport in to get renewed/updated or whatever. So, no ID. We couldn't even get into the local bar that EVERYBODY else was at. We go back to the park to look for the ID, no luck. I suggest we just go have a fire in the back yard & continue to cocktail. The night's still young. She mulls it over, and winds up whipping herself into a huge anger over the no ID situation. So, she eventually decides to say "Fuck it just take me home". And there went all the air out of my balloon. I seriously thought she was just going to drive home Saturday night. Then, Sunday morning BAM goes back to the park AND FINDS THE FUCKING ID. DISASTER AVERTED.

Meiz said...

Ty Lawson just asked for somebody to hook him up with a League Pass password so he can watch on the internet. Like he has no money.

"Long story short-"

So she stayed the night? good work
