Bag of Randomness

  • I have a feeling that the new three pound pretzel available at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington isn’t going to be a big seller.
  • The Rangers also upgraded their video board, but they aren’t the only team to upgrade their stadium technology wise.
  • Bacon Flavored Oxygen Inhaler
  • Jeopardy! sure was weird last night.  During the first round when none of the contestants could get the answer correct, Neil Patrick Harris appeared as if he was on set in Trebek’s place and provided the correct answer.  Then, in the second round, the same thing happened except it was Jeff Probst (who use to host the Rock n Roll Jeopardy).  Then, for Final Jeopardy, Will Ferrell appeared as Alex Trebek.  I promise you, this was not a dream or a hallucination.
  • Something for my sci-fi friend: She Never Saw Star Wars
  • Awkward Family Wedding Photos
  • There’s a local story of a high school baseball team sacrificing live chickens to end a losing streak, and the media keeps stating the influence is from the movie Major League.  If the movie is truly the inspiration, then they would remember the team actually brought in a bucket of KFC – which ended up helping them.
  • NKOTB and the Backstreet Boys have a new single out.  Thanks for the link, Jimi.
  • My friend Barry pointed out on his blog that being single and out on “the scene” isn’t that great.
  • Also from his blog – Texas Senate Candidate Has Read Republican Playbook and More
  • An interesting web browser chart – just for you Stef!
  • The New York subway system has changed a lot since 1986.
  • I’m unable to understand this Oxy ad.
  • Betty White is going to host a senior citizen prank show – I hope no one dies suddenly.

    The chicken sacrifice is mentioned in Bull Durham: it is to remove a curse from a player's glove.

    For the Oxy ad, if you look at the bottle for 20 seconds the megenta spots in the rest of the picture will seem to disappear. Similar to the lilac chaser illusion:

    The Jeopardy episode you mentioned was actually a repeat of last year's April 1st episode. I guess it was meant to be some kind of April Fool's cleverness. I remember seeing it last year and having the same reaction you had. They moved the all new Jeopardy episodes back to CBS in the mornings at 11:00. If you are a regular watcher you'll have to pit yourself against me and BibleScholarGeorge.
