Weekend Questions

| | Comments (20)


Hey kids, It has always seemed strange to me that the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.

  • CAN the Braves win their 10th game in a row? And one month ago did you think that this series with the Dodgers would be the marquee one of the weekend?

  • DID you know there's porn on the MLB.com message boards? MLB probably doesn't want you to since news of them cracking down is leaking at 4PM on a Friday. Sounds like a job for Matsui. Or Tim Kurkjian and his 14 inch love chisel.

  • WILL the Reds or the Cardinals leave the weekend ahead in the airtight NL Central?

  • CAN the Red Sox avenge early season struggles against the lowly Orioles? Now with 50% more Juan Samuel! Boston needs to keep pace with the equally hot Rays and Yankees.

  • CAN the Twins handle the A's and preserve their 2.5 game cushion over Detroit?

  • SEEING any good megashows or going to any festivals this summer? The season is upon us.

Couple programming notes to send you off with. Answer Man Dave Brown from Big League Stew is on his honeymoon all next week. Your friends from WoW will be taking turns covering for him in his Morning Juice column. Yes, the five WoWies each get a run at it, and if you remember our past gigs over there, it'll be worth it for the comments alone. Join Rob as he kicks it off Monday morning.

And I'll be back here tomorrow morning with those College World Series previews I promised you, so you'll have some light brunch reading. Be well and have a blissed out weekend. Same WoW channel.

Sorry for the lack of ICE pictures this week. My friend turns 30 today and I am hanging out with him tomorrow so I should a picture or two for you on Monday

This is a quote from C.J. Wilson via ESPNDallas.com

"It undermines the authority of the umpires to have instant replay. Because then it’s a classic big brother giving up freedom for some fake security kind of thing like we do in society all the time," Wilson said."


So apparently, to Wilson at least, the MLB overturning the call for Galarraga's perfect game is equivalent to the government keeping tabs on its citizens 24/7.

I'm guessing that C.J. probably thinks Chris Coghlan is behind it all.

Cogz4Totalitarianism should be his twitter handle...

Mustachioed Bro in the vid above is so upset about the Galarraga incident, that he called him Amada Garcia.

Do you think he had to ask his mom and little sister not to walk through the living room for 5 minutes so that he could register his disgust?

Also, there are only 4 views of that, and I watched it and Kris watched it. And I'm assuming that the author watched it, too. Quite a following that bro has.

Rob's just going to Google "torn down stadiums" and post about that all week.

I cannot wait to get Yahoo-commenter'd next week.

J, as a warm-up:

THIS ARTICLE IS [profane] YOUR [profane] I CANT BELIEF YOU [profane]ERS GET TO [profane] PUBISH THIS GARBAGE [profane]

Megashows?

Well, Matt T and I will be at The Hold Steady/Gaslight Anthem/Whigs gig in Detroit on 7/15. And then we'll be enjoying the Old 97s in Chicago the next night. Finally, our WoW Social Skillz will be at the last night of the Pitchfork Music Festival, where Matt will be falling in love with every chillwave girl he meets. Too bad for them that we will be legally gay married in 10 states after bro-ing out so much in such a short time period.

We'll have others with us as well (HI CLARE!) to keep us both freshly ICED.

No one told the O's to win one for the Gipper

njpanick: It's only 2-1, unless somehow you are ahead of the live baseball game I am watching in front of me. Either way, I'm going to place a bet that the Phillies take a 3-1 lead.

I'll be hitting the Outsidlands Music Festival in San Francisco again.
