This Weekend: A tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing

actually, come to think of it, there wasn't much sound and fury. And though now I'm telling the story, I don't consider myself an idiot, except in the Kevin Millar/Johnny Damon sense.

Speaking of the Red Sox, today's loss nonwithstanding they seem to be doing seem to be doing well with their top two starters out of action. The Yankees are jockeying with the D-Rays for last place and I couldn't be happier. I know it's early in the season, but its still damned fine to see. The Orioles are annoying, but hell, I'm in general pleased.

The Celtics got eliminated, but hell, three Boston teams in the playoffs, two of which win it all? I'm not complaining. Last time that happened was 1986, the year I was born, and the year that they all made it to the finals, the Celtics being the only team to bring home rings. Odd, that.

On to other things.

Saije has updated her blog after a drought of nigh two months. And has once again proven that she kicks my ass with her sheer blogging productivity. *tips cap*

Oh, and to follow SuperKate's example, I'd like to note that I'll be in Boston from June 4th to the first week of September. If anyone reading this finds themselves in Boston during that span of time, don't be a stranger.

Update: 11:51 PM: In the last few minutes of my weekend, and after nearly three hours of baking in my crappy oven (I'm never going to do this without thinking about Mitch Hedburg), my potato was ready. I cut it open and stuffed it with butter and cheese. There are worse ways to end a weekend.


  1. Damn, I'm fuckin old in this blog group. You were only born in 1986? What the fuck? I was born in 1978!!

    Anyway, I think I am changing from a Yankee's fan to a former Yankee's fan. No, I cannot become a Red Sox fan, but I'm thinking the Cubs might need another idiot cheering for them.

  2. A loss for the Evil Empire is a victory for Red Sox Nation. Plus, I like the Cubs. You should root for the Cubs

  3. Also, If the blogging crew you are referring to is those who frequent this site, I am the second youngest. exceeding only Mark in years.


    I popped out in 1985. Oh yeah.

    And yay for the baked potato!

    OHHH! If you like Mitch you will probably like Dane cook. They are nothing a like other than the fact that they are both as funny as hell!

  5. I like Dane Cook, but not as much as Mitch, Dennis Leary, Lewis Black, Maria Bamford, Chris Rock, Robin Williams, George Carlin, Al Franken, Stephen Lynch, or Jerry Seinfeild.

  6. Those are good comics, but I saw Carlin in Vegas a few years ago, and to be honest, the opening nobody was much funnier. Carlin was off his game and bored with his own material.

    As for this crew, I am mostly thinking myself, SupernakedKate, Beaky, you, Sammy, and perhaps a few others. Damn I'm old.

  7. Lewis Black is my hero. I want to be just like him when I grow up. Or not, but it's fun to pretend sometimes. I just want a gravelly voice.

    Also, MikeyPants, RadioSteve is older than you.

  8. I'm kind of stuck on the fact that you were born in 1986. Hmmm, you know that was the year that shall live in infamy (at least until 2004) because of well, you know what happened, I'm sure you've read of it, we need not speak of it now. It is the only thing I remember about that year except the one day the sun mysteriously dimmed and it was as black as midnight although only noon...might that have been the day you were born? I wonder.

    So do you have a job yet for the summer?
