Odds & Sods

A few random thoughts...

Larry David thinks it's funny to urinate on a picture of Jesus. Sarah Silverman and Bill Maher like to insult Catholics. Just me wondering, but why don't they go insult Muslims or urinate on a picture of the Prophet Mohammed. The story is here. I've already sent a complaint to HBO here.

October is now the deadliest month in Afghanistan since U.S. forces entered that country eight years ago with 55 soldiers having been killed so far this month.

Meanwhile, Nero is still fiddling while Rome burns.

There’s nothing worse in sports than fans that throw tantrums when their team loses but then rub it in everyone’s face when their team wins. Even worse are people that constantly blame the refs. I see this at every level and in my 12 years of covering high school football in various capacities, it is insidious. Certain high schools never lose because the other team is better, no, it has to be the refs.


Before the pundits anoint Mark Messier as the G.M. of the Rangers, I have one question, is Mess going to scout potential draft picks at a game between the Windsor Spitfires and Owen Sound?

When I think of the N.B.A. right now, I have a vision of Bruce Springsteen yelling "is there anybody alive out there?"


Yankees in 4.

The best living American author, Anne Rice, released a new book yesterday, Angel Time.

Speaking of books, I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of Swimming with Piranhas by former National Wrestling Alliance president Howard Brody. The plan is for Brody to come on my show in late November.

Roger Daltrey says that "The Who: Rock Band" is in the works for next year.

But if anyone were to insult the Jews because, you know, they've been persecuted for 4,000 years or so, there would be utter chaos, worthy of an Imus firing.

Hypocrisy at its best...GOOD FARTS!

I just don't get why things like this are done; ratings, I suppose.

Rob Adams said...

I'm afraid that's probably true.

I really wanted your World Series prediction to be true. Tonight's another night.

Sean G. Kilkelly said...

Yeah, I still think it is a quick series....I guess it will have to be 5 now.
