Sounds like this is going to be the story of the week. The mosquitoes may well have managed to take over the world by Friday.
The WPS play-off picture is falling into place a bit more, with the weekend’s action complete. Sadly, the Red Stars and FC Gold Pride are now out of the mix.
So anyway, back to the WPS playoff picture. Wednesday’s game with the Freedom could clinch a berth for the Breakers. Then, if they can beat the Athletica on Saturday, they’ll scure a home game. GO BREAKERS!
Meanwhile, Palin said good-bye yesterday (and anyone who actually believes it’s good-bye should check out that bridge to nowhere she was building, too. According to Huffington Post,
Her first order of business as a private citizen is to speak Aug. 8 at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California. She also wants to campaign for political candidates from coast to coast, and continue to speak her mind on the social networking site Twitter.
Gotta say that Twitter is a great venue for her – 140 characters being the upper limit for expressing the depth and complexity of her thinking. Her speech is bizarre and includes this line: “How about, in honor of the American soldier, you quit makin’ things up?” How’s about you quit doin’ it, too, Sarah?
Actually, I suppose the really scary thing is that she may not exactly be making things up – she may be saying what she actually believes. So we’re back to the depth and quality of her thinking. Either way, Sarah, I really do wish that this were truly good-bye. Our country needs a LOT less of you.
If you hate the sound of her voice … here’s a transcript from Mudflats. And a quick take from Shannyn Moore. Word salad, indeed! It would be nice to have a mental health professional somewhere offer up a diagnosis. There is a paranoid flavor, that’s for sure. Narcissism, too. What else? Might be worthy of a web poll. Hmmmm.
