Vegass and other things that I wish would stay there

So did we really need O.J. Simpson back in the news? Nope, I didn't think so either. But he was only one of a few unwanted things that happened over the weekend.

  • Please, please, would someone telly Sally Field that America really doesn't care what she thinks about the war? I could have guessed she was agin' it.
  • Now that Al Gore has been given an Emmy for his Current venture, which is a lot like YouTube except much less successful, I'm wondering what other awards he should get. Perhaps a Peabody, a Newbery, a Fulbright, a MacArthur "Genius" Grant, and certainly the Pillsbury Bake-Off. Sheesh.
  • Alan Greenspan and Vicente Fox are the latest luminaries to come out with books that bash W. I may have to write one myself; there seems to be an almost-limitless market for Bush-bashing.

Condolences also to followers of Minnesota football. As much as I want to complain about the Badgers and their lackluster performance against The Citadel, at least they didn't lose to Florida Atlantic, which I thought was a tea company. And it's only a matter of time before the Vikings are looking like the late 90s Badgers, with Childress and Bollinger at the helm. All they need is Mike Samuel and it will be perfect. Was that gloating? Naahh, it couldn't have been gloating.

Q. What do you call a Viking with a Super Bowl ring?

A. A thief.

Still a great joke, 40 years and counting....

Love the joke. I also love the fact that the Pack is 2-0.

Me too, good sir.

Don't forget the Redskins are 2-0 as well.

Hey Mark, is it time for Redskin Rama yet?

(Good grief we were nerds. Walking the grates at St. Mary Grade School doing Redskin Rama).

Redskin Rama was GOOD STUFF.
