College Boy

This dude is the real life Crawl (Pauly Shore) from Son-in-Law. Disturbing to think that this character is still roaming the freshman dorms looking for action.

Geek of the Week Award

sorry, couldn't resist the urge to use an old Mike & the MadDog phrase. Sort of reminds me of the scene in the Breakfast Club when the tough guy falls through the library ceiling.

A new leader for the 21st century.

If not for the Body, this door would not be open for such fine candidates.

Quick Poll?

I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts about the Blair government's major loss in City Council elections in Britain yesterday. Labour lost 298 seats. Though they still hold a majority, this was still considered a huge loss. Could the UK be swinging towards the Conservative Party at the same time the U.S. is swinging Democrat? This would be a truly interesting turn of events, especially given the role that the war in Iraq has on both ruling parties' fortunes.

Do any of you guys watch Lost?

It is, by far, the best show on tv.

The amount of thought that goes into the smallest details of the show are amazing. For example, there was a fake commercial interspliced with the real commercials during the airing of last night's episode. The fake commercial was for a fake scientific foundation that relates to the show and origins of the mysterious island at its center. If you called the number at the end of the commercial you could listen to fake messages at the fake foundation's call center. One of those messages provided a password. That password, in turn, unlocked a secret area on the fake foundation's fake website. That website's secret area provides more phony documents that give more clues about what is going on on the show.

Just amazing!

DC Baseball

Congrats to all you Nats fans (Jester I think you're the only one). By all accounts, it seems that the Nats have replaced the O's as the Beltway's favorite team. Question for the DC folk, Is the Nats' overwhelming fan support & popularity simply due to people being in the newlywed phase of having a home town team or are they genuine fans?

Put another way, do you think fan support will dwindle in a year or two and / or once the Nats have a few losing seasons?

Amazin' Mets & Juicin' Bonds

In response to Jester, I feel the need to express my true joy at watching my beloved Mets play so far this year. While there is a lot of ball left to play this season, I think they've thrown down the gauntlet to the NL East (including the Nats) and have shouted "Catch us if you can!"

And now for good blogger fodder, I throw this out to the field - Should Bonds get a celebration for passing Ruth? I say hell no given that he juiced his way to the top. Personally, I'd love to be there to boo his ass when he does. His actions as well as those of others (in my opinion this includes Sosa and Big Mac) have done nothing but cheapen and ruin what was once arguably the most revered and respected record in sports.

For a second question, should everything Bonds has accomplished from 1999-current be stricken from the record books?
(of couse I'm assuming that he's being juicing since then; but given his unhuman like middle aged growth spurt, don't think this is too far off base).

Please Post Something

Will some one please post something? I come here everyday and stare at the same old posts. Surely one of us must have some thought that is interesting enough to share.
