It's 11:10 p.m. - do you know where the Whitless Wonder is?
Would it kill area media to refer to Russell E. Diethrick Stadium by its actual name? Do we really have to call it The Russ? Whenever I hear that, it makes me think of Russ Griswold from the National Lampoon's Vacation movies, not one of the most respected men in the Jamestown community. In a similar vein, is it necessary to call Ralph Wilson Stadium "The Ralph?" How lazy are we?
Why does it seem upgrading your team does nothing but upset the applecart for a few days? I'm sure Xavier Nady and Damaso Marte will help the Yankees, but Nady has struggled pretty bad so far, and the Yankees are in the midst of a three-game losing streak. I hope this turns out better than the Craig Wilson trade a couple of years ago.
Is your chair getting a bit warm, Brian Cashman? That's Mr. Steinbrenner on Line 1.
As NFL training camps open, we now know all it takes to push a 17-0 team to the back of the sports pages is a heaping dose of Brett Favre. The guy's good and all, but good Lord, this might be over the top. Yeah, Favre has won a Super Bowl, but Tom Brady's won three of them.
Is there a presidential election going on? You'd think the candidates and parties would be making a bit more noise, and that you'd see a little more activity.
I saw the Karate Kid 2 the other night on American Movie Classics. I remember seeing it in theater in Massachusetts while visiting my aunt and uncle. It's a good movie, but does Ralph Macchio belong in two movies that I've seen on AMC (since My Cousin Vinny was shown during an Oscar-themed month of movies)?
For a station that harps on itself as the home of drama, when will TNT pick up The West Wing? Frankly, if it costs $60 a season to buy it on DVD, you'd think TNT would be able to make money on it in syndication. That's alright - there's always another Law and Order spin-off to throw on TV.
There'll be an actual blog on Thursday, and maybe I'll even post it when some of you are awake to read it.
