Former Umpire Marty Springstead died at home at the age of 74. Marty was one of the true good guys, a well respected official (which puts him ahead of 99% of NFL refs this year).
Next, The CBS evening news led off with perhaps the stupidest thing I have EVER heard on broadcast television:
“The cruise ship captain under fire for abandoning his vessel while thousands of passengers scrambled for rescue has reportedly come up with an explanation for his flight - he accidentally tripped and fell into a lifeboat.”
COME. F’N. ON.
I tripped and fell into a lifeboat. That’s why the commander of the coast guard spent a half-hour vainly trying to order my yellow ass back onto the ship. So now not only is he a craven coward, but also a blatant liar. Sorry to be unforgiving, but It will be a fine day when he adds “Convicted felon” to the accolades he won with this trip.
As of right now, Cashbox has not gotten their server back up. Rest assured, that with a little warning and scads of extra time (yep, another early weekend due to lack of work), I will be doing… something… this Friday. Not sure what, but I just had an idea and if I remember it long enough I might just try it. Assuming SOPA doesn’t stop me.
|They're calling it "Le Miracle de Rouen"!|
Tune in tomorrow, when- at Average Girl’s request, I will do a post about yoga, and… what? That got blacked out? Pirating charges? Oh well, maybe I’ll just raid wastebook for more bon mots instead.
