Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • Shocking bull fight over the weekend. Warning: Hard to watch.
  • I went to the Rangers game yesterday --- first time in about six years. Hot. Fun.
  • I was sitting near a guy that looked like the killer in No Country For Old Men. When a Cubs fan nearby was being obnoxious, we pictured that guy pulling out a pneumatic nail gun. Funny visual.
  • And a buddy and I had a conversation with an older lady about the virtues of Brett Michaels. Yep.
  • And we also debated over whether a freckled girl looked like Linday Lohan. ("She does." "No she doesn't." "Yes, she does!")
  • Oh, yeah. I did watch the game.
  • That was an incredible story this weekend about Jordan Spieth, the sixteen year old golfer that finished 16th at the Byron Nelson. I heard him on the radio before the tournament and he seemed like a nice, respectful kid.
  • I intend to follow the World Cup this year.
  • Dead Brittany Murphy's husband found dead.
  • I have read two reviews of the Lost finale last night, and I still don't know what happened.
  • Not what her parents pictured when she was a little baby: A 15 year old Highland Park student is in ICU with alcohol poisoning (a .40!).
  • Saw that a Decatur lady passed away over the weekend. She was 101.
  • The new Nike three minute World Cup ad is fascinatingly slick, and I'm not sure I understand it.

I liked Brittany. Yesterday I watched one off her best movies " Uptown Girls".

That was an easy bull fight to watch. Bull fighting should be required for all illegal aliens.

Bret Michaels is awesome and inspiring. Watched him win Celebrity Apprentice last night and his effort to come on the show, despite his obvious struggle to walk related to neural injury was inspiring, so much so that most of the audience and other players were in tears. The spot showing him and his cut little daughter together and his obvious devotion to her was heart-warming. I certainly wish him a speedy recovery, as it appears he has a long and painful rehab to regain his pre-stroke function.

I must find the girl in the stands who shakes it at the 2:05 mark for this afternoon's pick-me-up. She deserves way more web time than that measly half-second.

No comments/editorials on the oil slick in its 5th week??? King Obamy still handing out drilling permits (note the front ad in newspaper). Yet the liberal weinners still blaming Bush for this? sheesh

I predict the only World Cup I will see is what I'm forced to sit thru during SportsNation to watch more Michelle Beadle.

Why is the World Cup being held in South Africa? They have the second highest murder rate in the world and are first in rapes where one out of three women will be raped in their lifetime.
