A few random items this morning, beginning with FFootball!
- Yo Doris – did you see who you’re playing this Sunday? Get ready! (Unfortunately I am going to be away and TV-less for the weekend .. but am hoping to be able to check in on line from time to time as the 2 Blitzen’ Babes dismantle wannabes!)
- Red Sox clinched and Phillies won!
- Cold Souls – at Red River (or wherever it may be in your neighborhood) – is a very creative, interesting, bizarre movie that you should check out if you get the chance. There were several points where everyone in the theater was laughing out loud (and I’d be hard pressed to explain exactly why).
- The Breakers traded A-Rod to Philly. I am happy for her and pissed at Tony. Not knowing much of anything about the situation ain’t gonna keep me from having an opinion. From what I observed of his body language and attitude (from row 3, mind you, right next to the Breakers’ bench) I thought he was petulant and cranky with her for most of the season – rotten way to manage a young player. It’s got me thinking that the success of the ’99ers had more to do with Foudy, Overbeck, Hacker, et al than it had to do with Tony. Come on, Dude … get it together.
- The Democrats got no backbone! What are you so afraid of? Stop hiding behind the GOP and take a damn stand! (And no, Max, the highest priority now is to pass a GOOD bill – not just a f–king bill.)
Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.), Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) and Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) opposed the Schumer amendment. Baucus said he did so because he didn’t think it could garner 60 votes on the floor and his highest priority is to pass a bill.
Sens. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) and Tom Carper (D-Del.) voted for the Schumer amendment, but joined Baucus, Conrad and Lincoln in opposing the Rockefeller amendment.
- In the first game of the WNBA Finals the Mercury brought down the Fever in OT. Too bad the game started so late! (Brought down the Fever – get it? Guess that’s a good thing during flu season, eh?!)
