Things to Think About:

1. Think about the World Watching... Well maybe not the world... But they are watching in Northern Ohio... Central Florida and Northern Texas and a couple of people in Mahnomen.

2. Think about Pinto... Josmil Pinto... He's been doing pretty good... It's been a good September for him. That may turn into a good April.

3. Think about Roster Options... The Twins have a couple of options each night and the names seem to change each night.

4. Think about 1,000 Wins... I want it... I want it... This Year... 2 Wins Needed... 3 games to play. We have to play winning ball from here on out for Gardy to reach 1,000 wins.

5. Think about Rice Krispies... I stopped eating them... The messages they were giving me each morning were growing more disturbing as the days went by.
A Skeleton walks into a bar and says... "Give me a beer... And a mop".

A blonde walks up to the counter and says, "I'd like to order a burger, fries, and a milkshake".

The lady behind the counter looks at her sternly, and says, "Miss. This is a library!"

Blonde looks embarrassed, and says, "Sorry. I'd like to order a burger, fries, and a milkshake".

Um, I'm blonde (currently), I work in a library. I think that joke is insulting to me. I give you an infraction.



I AM kidding. This is the game thread, after all.

Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.

Man, two consecutive nights of celebrating--Wednesday for clinching a tie for 4th place and last night for clinching 4th.

That fact that this is solely due to the ineptitude of the B*tch Sox has been duly noted.

I have to respectfully disagree with #5 - "Snap, Crackle, and Pop" changed my life for the better, although I must admit that it is Crackle's fault I have been in the workhouse the last 10 days... stupid Crackle.

I hope Ron has a uber-inspiring and passionate speech to give to his ball players before game time.

Something in the lines of:

"These last 3 games are our World Series, if we win them all - we are the World Champs! Don't let these scumbags come to our home turf and have their celebration. For these last 3 games and my last 3 games of manager of this team, let's rise above the occasion, let us be the masters of the Cleveland Indians...

on a side note, offense, we will have to score 15 runs a game."

Hmm ... this is where I come in ... do you know what the music is at the end?


Edit: By the way ... I don't get how that commercial sells a Mercedes. That wouldn't make me want one.

Why are blonde jokes always about women? What about blonde men?

I was feverishly going through the Mozart Sonatas while stalling for time, and hadn't gotten to the Concertos yet.

Only 3 more game threads this season. Let's make the most of them. I am praying for at least one Carnak -- and the more the better.

I could be wrong but I think they are trying to use sex to sell automobiles.

I'm having trouble getting over that Norman conquest of the Anglo-Saxons, as well.

The joke is clearly about the blond who comes into a library, not the one working there. So I don't see how it could be insulting to you.

If you weren't blond (currently) you prolly would've picked up on that.

Let's just say there wasn't much work done in the office while that young lady was sauntering around.

That does it, I was going out to wash and wax my Benz but after that commercial I'm going back to my corner for the evening.

May all our prospects be All Stars and the beer be free.

Carnac: One thousand wins
Ed: One thousand wins. That could mean anything.
Carnac: But according to this hermetically sealed envelope, tonight it will mean only one thing.
Ed: What?
Carnac: (Pst, Ed, you're supposed to do the whole Your Magnificence and Hey-Yo thing.)
Ed: (Oh.) One thousand wins. Hey-yo, Your Magnificence.
Carnac: May the fleas of a thousand lineup cards infest your cellar.
Ed: The contents, please?
Carnac: What didn't save Charlie Manuel either?

I was going to say sashaying, but sauntering is probably more correct.
