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.

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.

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

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 would never buy a German or Japanese car -- I am still bitter about WWII.

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.
