We lovin' it, Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers

Poor publicity starved kids
Did you see the shot of J. Lo and Ben Affleck canoodling at the Red Sox Yankee game Saturday? It was nice because we haven’t heard or seen much about those two this year.

Tha, tha, tha, that’s all, folks
For a second, I thought the Don Zimmer Pedro Martinez scuffle was a Warner Brothers cartoon of Elmer Fudd going at Speedy Gonzales.

This was rule number one
It looks like the New York Yankees relief pitcher jolly-stomped an out-of-line Boston Red Sox groundskeeper. There are only two rules groundskeepers need to know: A, If you’re in the other team’s bullpen, don’t wave a rally flag, and B, when it rains, don’t cover up the starting pitcher with the tarp.

About to do that thing at the place that will take them to that other thing
The Chicago Cubs are just one game away from doing that thing I can’t mention for fear of jinxing it.

One reason to like it
“The Next Joe Millionaire” once again dupes beautiful women, this time all European, with a phony rich bachelor. Just when you didn’t think it was possible, we come up with another way to piss-off the French.

Or all of Afghanistan
The Chicago Cubs defeated the Florida Marlins 5-4 to take a two to one lead in the best of seven series. After Sunday, the series returns to Chicago. And it’s a good thing, because the football designed Pro Player Miami stadium has to be the ugliest place in the world to play baseball, outside of Newark, New Jersey or Shea Stadium.

Thom Bean
Are you watching Fox’s coverage of the NLCS? Is it just me or does play-by-play announcer Thom Brennaman look like Mister Bean’s Rowan Atkinson?

If the H is silent in Thom, shouldn’t his last name be pronounced Bennaman?
