World Champion White Sox

I'm stunned. If the Cubs win next year, then all I can say is that baseball is fixed, and that I will never watch the major leagues again.

Update: If the Yankees go until 2011 and then some without winning another World Series, will it be the "Curse of the WTC"?

Update II: How did I miss the "New Orleans / Oklahoma City" Hornets? And here I thought that the "Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim" was retarded.

...because it is.

But seriously, this one is even dumber. What's next on the docket - the Canada/Mexico national soccer team?

You know, a true "Fitzmas" would involve Ted Stevens losing his job.

Even though he's got nothing to do with it, getting rid of Ted Stevens (and Ted Kennedy for that matter), would be totally sweet.

The End Is Near...

After nearly 30 years, the videotape approaches the guillotine.

Va Tech 28, Maryland 9

Closer than I expected, but a loss drops us to 4-3. We have yet to lose on the road (3-0)

I took a picture today with the band - my first since June of 2001.

I then was rapping for an hour. Skin-check!

Blasted Va Tech

We're going to get blown out. Like... so much so that even Harvey would go "That's too much blowing going on for ME."

I know... it's going to be THAT bad.

In regards to the halftime show, some claptrap such as this could never EVER be written today.

Because it's offensive sucks, of course.

So much "anti-immigrant sentiment" said one, forgetting that technically, they could not possibly be illegal immigrants.

Update: I mentioned the national televised thing on ESPN so the entire nation can watch us get smoked right? Right.

Update II: I forget where I read this.

Q: How many Vikings does it take to screw in a light bulb.

A: None. They screw in a boat.

Ha!

Hurricane Wilma

Does anyone know why a hurricane is defined as a storm with winds of 74 mph or greater? I mean, 74 seems to be a rather arbitrary number.*

*Yes, I know that technically, all numbers in regards to measuring speed are arbitrary, but when using this system, and even standardizing it to kilometers per hour (~120), or metres per second (~33) - they too seem rather odd.

Evil Glenn's Alien

Click here.

Why does Evil Glenn have an alien outside his house?

To help him fight off the vile Karl Rove, of course!

Seriously, part IV coming soon.

Hurricane Vince

Next up is Wilma... and after that, the meteorologists tell us that they will go to the Greek Alphabet, and name it Hurricane Alpha. (Or would that be Hurricane ά ?)


But they lie... the next hurricane is... Hurricane Ditka.

Immigration

This should be a probation-inducing offense.

Plus, it gives me more reason to boo NC State.

Guess Who Pays?

Mom delivers 16th child

How much does it cost to get 16 children through 12 years of schooling?

Thank Goodness He's Not Running Again

How about instead of claiming that we're political orphans abandoned by the GOP and thus RINOs*, we pull a leftist deconstructionism-ism and claim that GW and Harriet Miers and Tom Delay and Bill Frist and John McCain are the RINOs?

I certainly won't vote Democrat in 2006 (or 2008, or ever unless they finally embrace capitalism), but I could foresee myself sitting at home.

Then again, if I re-register here in Maryland, I'll still vote for Michael Steele after that DSCC debacle. Seriously, every time republicans do something stupid, the democrats have to say "No, no! Watch me! Pay attention to me!" and they'll do something even stupider.

We've gone from choking on pretzels to hiding the salami.

October 12, 2000

was the day that the U.S.S Cole was attacked by Mormons.

Or you know, not.

Today is October 12, 2005. Take it as you will.
But remember that payback is a b*tch, buddy.

Obligatory Miersizing

This is disappointing. VERY disappointing.

While I am repulsed by abortion (especially dilation & curettage), I'd rather live in an capitalist, socially liberal society than a socialist welfare yet traditionally conservative one.

10/11-12 Update

My new computer is in: 138 gigs of hard drive space still not used up, 17 inch monitor, printer-fax-copier-scanner, and a T1 internet connection provided by the university (and by extension, Harvey), and after school tomorrow I'll start cranking out stuff again.

Here's food for thought:

Is there a correlation between where one lies on the Social Liberal - Social Conservative axis and the attitudes they have towards death?

10/8 Sports Review

I know, I know - I'll get out of the sports mood when my new computer gets in (10/17 - tch'yeah!)

Maryland 38, Temple 7. This game was way too close.

Does anyone have a broom? It looks like the Red Sox got swept...

Indeed.

The Slow Dancer
Deliberate Gentle Love Dreamer (DGLDm)

Steady, reliable, and cradling her tenderly. Take a deep breath, and let it out real easy...you are The Slow Dancer.

Your focus is love, not sex, and for your age, you have average experience. But you're a great, thoughtful guy, and your love life improves every year. There's also a powerful elimination process working in your favor: most Playboy types get stuck raising unwanted kids before you even begin settling down. The women left over will be hot and yours. Your ideal woman is someone intimate, intelligent, and very supportive.

Your exact opposite:
The Hornivore

Random Brutal Sex Master
While you're not exactly the life of the party, you do thrive in small groups of smart people. Your circle of friends is extra tight and it's HIGHLY likely they're just like you. You appreciate symmetry in relationships.




ALWAYS AVOID: The Battleaxe

CONSIDER: The Maid of Honor or The Sonnet

Poll

Does THIS POLL concern anyone else?

39% think it was Global Warming?
And 23% think it was an Act of God?!

Surely, there is some intermingling between the two populations, but still... someone get the Commissar on the phone.

AOL issues

This blog does not work on AOL. This has been a forewarning.

NFL Week 5 Preview

It's a topsy-turvy year in the NFL for those who started watching in the early 1990s (1991-92), that's for sure. Tampa Bay and Cincinnati are a combined 8-0? Anyone who ever played Tecmo Super Bowl would be forced to laugh at that.

Let's see how week 4 panned out.

Buffalo @ New Orleans - Buffalo - (0-1)
Denver @ Jacksonville - Jacksonville (0-2)
Detroit @ Tampa Bay - Tampa Bay (1-2)
Houston @ Cincinnati - Cincinnati (Did I just say 4-0 Bengals?!) (2-2)
Indianapolis @ Tennessee - Indianapolis (3-2)
San Diego @ New England - San Diego (calling an upset) (4-2)
Seattle @ Washington - Seattle. (4-3)
St. Louis @ NY Giants - The Giants (5-3)
NY Jets @ Baltimore - Baltimore (6-3)
Dallas @ Oakland - Dallas (6-4)
Minnesota @ Atlanta - Atlanta (7-4)
Philadelphia @ Kansas City - KC (7-5)
San Francisco @ Arizona - SF (7-6)
Monday: Green Bay @ Carolina - Green Bay (7-7)

Sunday Record: 31-24
Monday Record: 0-5

Week 5 Selections:
New Orleans @ Green Bay - Green Bay (I have to keep picking them so they lose)
Chicago @ Cleveland - Cleveland
Baltimore @ Detroit - Detroit (Detroit takes division lead at 2-2)
Miami @ Buffalo - Miami
New England @ Atlanta - New England
Seattle @ St. Louis - St. Louis

Carolina @ Arizona - Carolina
Cincinnati @ Jacksonville - Jacksonville
Pittsburgh @ San Diego - Pittsburgh*

*Game is on a Monday, so feel free to ignore this pick when making selections.
** Red Sox once again one game from elimination. Hope they get SMOKED.
*** Go Maryland, beat Temple. Yeah, it shouldn't even need that.

Da Bears, Week 4

No matter what happens in the Green Bay/Carolina game tomorrow, the Bears will hold on to 1st place in the NFC North.

At 1-2.

With a +13 point differential (52-39)

And they play the hapless Browns. That'll be an awful game.

2005 Baseball Postseason

I predicted the following, way back on April 2

Yankees
Red Sox
Cleveland
Anaheim
Atlanta
Houston
Philadelphia
Los Angeles

I hate the Yankees and Red Sox. I really, really, really hate them.

In positive news, the Patriots got STOMPED.

And now they will whine that they didn't have Rodney Harrison. Wah wah wah.
