I think there should be a new rule in baseball, that you only get to use one bat when you are at the plate. If it breaks or you throw it in the stands, then you either have to stand there for the rest of the plate appearance or try to lean into the pitch to get on base. I’m only half joking about this.
Louis CK has a story about how he and his wife hugged each other the first time they heard their child put together a real sentence. I thought about that story yesterday when I saw GirlGeeding eating a Pop Tart. I like to tease her by pretending to confuse her for her brother, and I asked, “Is brother eating a Pop Tart?” She replied, “No Daddy, brother not have teeth.”
I believe the Supreme Court’s decision and all paperwork and protocol about their decision on healthcare has already been made, so I don’t know why they are holding off until Thursday. It gives me the feeling they want the ruling to be announced just as they are driving or flying away for vacation.
It would be a crappy thing to do, but can cities on the west coast charge Japan for the cleanup costs associated with the debris washed ashore due to the tsunami.
Sandi Patty sang God Bless America at the Ballpark yesterday. That’s a name I haven’t heard in a while, all I can really remember about her is that affair she had back in the early 90′s with her back up singer who was also married. I didn’t know until yesterday that they ended up marrying each other. What’s our Christian radio’s slogan . . . Safe for the whole family?
The CBS Evening News had a segment on the new college football playoff system. Two things stood out, how much money that will be made and how they mentioned the only likely location for the first championship game is to be Jerry Jones’ Cowboys Stadium. You know Jerry is lobbying hard behind the scenes to get that game . . . it’s a good thing he has all that extra time to do such a thing as the president and general manager of professional sports organization.
I think when all is said and done, Jerry actually likes the idea of not have any corporate sponsorship attached to the stadium.
I’m not sure why Natalie Morales isn’t in the mix to take the place for Ann Curry. She’s pretty, smart, personable, and heck, there’s a growing Hispanic population. Here’s a trick question about her . . . Where was she born? Surprisingly, Taipei, Taiwan.
