A Few Random Thoughts

This post will just be some small random stuff that’s on my mind right now. Mainly things I’m sick of, with some other stuff tossed in.

Would Barry Bonds just please die in a fire? This ‘chase’ is excruciating. ESPN is still going live to every one of his at bats, like someone in the nation still cares. I don’t want to hear any more about the most unlikable cheater in the history of sports. Talk to me about Albert Pujols’ 23 home runs already. At least thats a legitimate story.

I have never seen a single minute of the show 24. None. In 5 seasons. I don’t know how I managed to do that, but sometimes you can really feel like the outsider when you’re not watching a show. Same goes for ‘Lost’. Never seen it. I guess with those types of shows, if you don’t get in on the ground floor when its first starting, the learning curve is so steep to catch up that you don’t even want to try. That’s why the Law and Orders are so popular. Very little story carry over. Each episode is a discrete unit. You can see any episode, in any order, from any season, and not feel like a schmuck for not knowing whats going on.

Being a sports fan, I go to a lot of sport websites. As such, I cannot understand why we are getting daily updates as to the condition of Barbaro. (That would be the horse that won the Kentucky Derby and broke his leg in the Preakness). You would think they were reporting on the health of the president or something. Granted, I haven’t read any of the articles, but the only people who really care about horseracing are degenerate gamblers and rich old men anyway. Do I really need to know that this horse is walking around more today than it did yesterday? Doctors are optimistic that he’ll recover. Well great. I will sleep better tonight knowing that. I thought they shot horses with broken legs. Maybe we can go back there.

Everyone has those friends who forward you endless amounts of crap that they get emailed from people forwarding endless amounts of crap, and so on and so forth. If it makes you crazy sometimes, there is a website out there where you can delicately attempt to extricate yourself from the person’s mailing list without hurting their feelings. http://www.thanksno.com/ You just forward the offender to this site and let them read it. Hopefully, they will get the hint. By the way, if you are one of those mass forwarders, next time you may want to think a little before forwarding that cute kitty picture to 300 people. Chances are not all of them are excited to see the subject line of “FW: FW: FW: RE: FW/ FW: FW: FW>Cute kitty pic!”

Ok… I’m done for now.

  1. AMEN!!! I am over the horse thing, long since over Barry Bonds, and have never watched Jack Bauer kill 100 people in 96 seconds,leaning out of a bus in rush hour traffic in LA and not hit one innocent. I do indulge in Lost, or at least did before the girl scouts took away my life. The forwarding thing…If I ever did, I feel deep regret now. I spend most of my time checking email just to see that I need a bigger penis, more sleep, viagra (for my larger penis I presume) and teen porn. What did we do before cable/sat tv w/900 channels of the same mindless thing? One more thing to be over, AMERICAN IDOL!!! I see nothing to idolize about these people. Let it die.
