- Good riddance Matt Millen....it's about time!!! Really, that's about all that needs to be said about that. Let's just get this season over, and hope that old-man Ford finally gets it right by cleaning house and hiring the right people. Then again, that's asking a lot out of the senile old
man who has made us fans endure suckdom our ENTIRE LIVES. Why would he change now?
- I don't know if I've anticipated watching something on TV as much as I am with the VP debate on Thursday night. After seeing the way Sarah Palin has answered the few (very few) questions she's faced so far, the potential for the unintentional comedy factor is off the charts. This woman is clueless. When SNL has a sketch that makes fun of you, and they use your EXACT quotes to do it...yikes.
- In all seriousness, watching her on TV is one big cringeworthy experience. Between the lost look in her eyes when she gets asked questions (like the Bush Doctrine question) , or when she thinks she knows the answer to a question and gives one long answer that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever once she's finished talking (her discussion about her foreign policy experience with Russia)..its really painful to watch. I get the feeling that I, just doing my everyday reading/watching of the news, and keeping up with the current events of the day, know more than she does, and that's what's scary. I want my leaders to be smarter than me. A lot of negative things had been made of Obama having a Harvard education, at the GOP convention. Is that really a bad thing? Shouldn't we expect our leaders to be well educated and articulate?
- Speaking of SNL and Sarah Palin, I'll have to admit for that for once, I think Tina Fey is actually funny.
- The baseball playoffs are here. I'm hoping that Boston and Philly get knocked out early. Boston, because I'm sick of seeing that city win everything, and Philly, just because I can't stand any of their sports teams. I'd really like to see an unconventional World Series of Tampa Bay and Milwaukee. The side of me that appreciates the historical side of baseball wouldn't mind seeing a Chicago-Boston World Series.
- Yes, I know my last point was a complete contradiction. I think I've been watching the Sarah Palin interviews a little too much.
