There are a couple things that I am less than impressed with concerning the second game of the World Series. First of all, I am sick of the tag line for the playoffs. Not only do I have to listen to Dane Cook talk about October, others insist on using "witty" wordplay. One Boston fan at Fenway was holding up a sign that said:

There's only one Soxtober.

I don't think I even need to say anything about this as it should speak for itself. I was also not so excited to see Troy Aikman in the stands wearing Boston Redsox gear. As you may know, I'm a Dallas Cowboys fan, but there is definitely a conflict of interest here.

Also, am I the only one who thinks that Kevin Youkilis runs funny? You should watch him sometime and let me know what you think. And finally, for the seventh inning stretch we had to listen to Boyz II Men sing God Bless America, and they weren't exactly on pitch with one another. Of course, I don't really expect much better from the Red Sox organization.

World Series Game 1... Ugly

The first game of the world series between the Rockies and the Red Sox was nothing short of a blood bath. It started out bad as the Red Sox brought 8 batters to the plate in the first inning. Another highlight of the game came when the Rockies brought in a new pitcher in the fifth inning with the bases already loaded and two outs. He proceeded to walk in three runs in a row. Simply awful. The worst part of all this is that the game isn't even over yet. It's been almost three hours now and the game is still in the sixth inning.

As much as I would love to see the Red Sox lose, I can't say that they deserve to. I understand that going up against Becket for Boston makes for a tough game for the Rockies, but you can't give up 13 runs in 6 innings and expect to win against any pitcher. All I can say is... Ugly.

Brooklyn Woman Wrestles a Snake

A woman in Brooklyn found a snake her toilet one night. It was a seven foot python that she found poking out of her toilet in her apartment. Plumbers had to tear apart the pipes in the apartment below in order to extract the snake. I'm sure that it must have been a frightening experience, but this lady now has a great story to tell. She's still a little spooked though because she now uses her daughter's training toilet at night.

As interesting as this story may be however, I mostly just wanted the excuse to mention wrestling a snake on this blog. It's a funny phrase. I don't really have any more to say about it, but if you're really interested in this story, you can read more about it here.

Brief Random Thoughts

I thought I would share this little bit of advertising that I found to be incredibly unique. I think it might persuade me to purchase one.

I found this picture and figured that I would share it with all of you. What would you think of having this in the bathroom? While I did find it quite funny, I think the novelty of it would wear off rather quickly and I'd soon be annoyed by it. It is pretty ingenious though. I'll give them that.

Apparently a woman really wanted her MacDonald's food. Somehow she ran over her own legs while she was in the drive through lane. I don't even know how this is possible.
