Pure And Easy

One of my favorite Who songs is Pure and Easy.

If only life could be like that. Oh well, dare to dream!

But really it is. The idea being that "one note" is enough. So if we find one thing to be grateful for each day, than really it is enough. No?

So tonight on ECW...Big Show will defend his World Title against Sabu in a rematch from Sunday's SummerSlam, which Show won.

I am really surprised by this but it appears as though Brian Leetch is set to sign with the New York Rangers. I've mentioned my feelings on here before which are that no doubt Leetch was a great player. If it's a one-year deal and he is just a power-play specialist. I am OK with it. Any more than that is asking for trouble. No way Leetch should be able to command the type of minutes he once did. But I think Head Coach Tom Renney is definitely in control of the team, so I don't think it would be a problem. If Leetch is healthy and used properly, he will provide something the Rangers desperately lacked last season, which was a steady quarterback with the man advantage.

Minnesota native and former 7th round draft pick of the Montreal Canadians Joe Micheletti is expected to be named the new analyst on Rangers' broadcasts with Sam Rosen. He has some major shoes to fill replacing John Davidson, but I think Micheletti is pretty solid. He reminds me a lot of New York Yankees' analyst Jim Kaat. In my opinion Kaat is the best baseball analyst in these parts. No schtick, just straight baseball. Same goes for Joe Micheletti. You won't get much in terms of giggles but you will get a guy who knows the game of hockey. Joe M. is also a former assistant coach with the St. Louis Blues where he finished up his playing career.

So, Tuesday is the only night of the week I make a point of watching something. ECW at 10 p.m. followed by Rescue Me at 11. Well, I have to say it can be a bit of a challenge for me to stay up that late, believe it or not. But I love Rescue Me and there are only a few more episodes left in this season. So why not...

Oh yeah, I watched some of On Native Soil on Court TV Monday night. It was all about the 9/11 commission report. I watched about an hour of it before, yep, had to go off to dreamland. If you did not see it you did not miss much. There was nothing in it that most people already don't know. Basically too much finger pointing at people who really tried to do their best that day in an extremely stressful situation. The blame should, first and always foremost, be directed at the terrorists. Yes, we should learn from our mistakes, but I don't believe it is necessary to put someone down in order to do so.

That's all for now!
