I have a friend who loves American Idol. He can’t get enough of it. Despite this, I still respect him. In his mind, it’s a quality show that maintains a certain level of drama. The truth is, it doesn’t matter why it works for him. It works.
Most people think that Pacman Jones is a bad person. He’s been associated with bad situations. He’s also donated money to the city of Nashville for new firefighter and police uniforms. One does not cancel out the other, but we all know that bad deeds do not completely define a person. I refuse to let the constant negative media barrage affect me. Sometimes it does. Nobody’s perfect.
Apparently Pac (as Jeff Fisher calls him) has distracted the Commish so much that the NFL couldn’t announce its schedule today. It has to be his fault, right?
Frank Thomas got in trouble for a pillow fight with a kid. The NFL plans to suspend him for the season.
I’m with George Carlin. All golf courses should be given to the homeless. I’ve never heard Tiger Woods’s 40 time, so how cool can he really be?
Who should the Titans trade for their first-round pick? Michael Turner and Asante Samuel are in the mix. NFL players are like new cars. They lose value once you drive off the lot. The Titans probably could get either player for a second-round pick, considering that eight figures of signing bonus come with the deal.
After three games, Nick Massett leads the White Sox in innings pitched. He had to mop up after Jose Contreras gave up eight runs in an inning on Monday. Tonight he pitched 4 2/3 innings after Mark Buehrle was hit by a line drive on his pitching arm. I don’t think it’s too early for him to get some MVP votes.
I love it that the Sox won when A.J. Pierzynski was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning.
