Independence Questions

Hey kids, I'm making Dr. Pepper Ribs!

  • WHAT are you doing on this, the most smoke filled, of federal holidays?

  • WILL Lou Piniella make it out of this weekend employed? The Cubs lost to the Reds last night and are getting crushed 10-0 as I type this. I know I'm beating the Fire Lou drum pretty hard, but this is getting ridiculous.

  • WHO has the toughest weekend at the top of that bunched up AL Central? Gotta be the White Sox heading to Arlington, where the Rangers have the best home record in the AL.

  • DID you know that Mat Latos, a starter in tonight's Astros/Padres tilt went to my alma mater, the lovely Coconut Creek High School? Of course you didn't, I just found out myself the other day.

  • WERE any of you surprised that I stopped writing about college baseball the instant FSU dropped from the CWS? Of course you weren't. I'm a total homer. Whatever, congrats Gamecocks.

I hope you all to have fun this weekend. Enjoy the weather if it's nice where you are.

One more thing. When you're being inundated with all this American bicentennial Fourth Of July brouhaha, don't forget what you're celebrating, and that's the fact that a bunch of slave-owning, aristocratic, white males didn't want to pay their taxes.

Same WoW channel.

POSTSCRIPT: Don't let your weekend pass without reading this interview with our own Drew Fairservice over at Fangraphs. Watch him expound on things like his "hit the ball hard" theory and somehow work in a Tulo reference even though he's talking about the Jays. Generally, see him be smarter than us. As usual.

I'm sorry. I can't listen to your lectures about history. I gotta pay attention to the steak on the grill.

Oh and Dr. Pepper is bringing back the real sugar formula. FOR A LIMITED TIME!

Coconut Creek High School sounds like a breeding grounds for future porn stars. Think about it...

Besides, Kris, everyone knows that THIS is what 4th of July is all about. God Bless Amurrica!

I'm gonna be severely disappointed if we don't get any shrimp this holiday weekend.

Nice article Drew. I was expecting hard-hitting questions like: which Jays home uni was your favorite.

I bet Kris has to stop himself from making a Dazed & Confused reference in every single post. I wish he'd stop fighting and just do it.

Thanks Phillas!

Someone make sure Chief didn't kill himself. Tribe had bases loaded, all on two-out hits. They got a base hit, but I think they threw out the guy at first base. Pretty sure it's still 3-0, A's.

Thanks to the Twins winning tonight, MLB teams are up to 6-11 on the day I post their song. I'm not sure how I feel about this...

Well if that's the record, then, um...make more Twins songs.

God knows the Tigers need all the help we can get.

If I remember right, the Tigers lost when I posted their song. Sorry...

...but next week is Mets and Yankees, so we'll see if my supposed bad karma wreaks havoc with them.

Also, I'm pretty sure Dr. Pepper has no more meat on his ribs, he has been dead quite a while after all.

I still haven't come to terms with there being another Tigers fan on here.

Your time to rule the kingdom on your own is ovaaaah. Or, at the very least, just let me use the executive bathroom.

But yeah, I was born pretty much in Detroit. So tah dah.

Just got back from the midnight screening of Independence Day. The dad from the Wonder Years is in that too. Coincidence? NO.

Midnight screening. Independence day. Two and a half hour movie. It's 3 or 4 (depending on timezones). WHERE WERE YOU FOR A HALF HOUR OR AN HOUR?


The great mystery.

I'll venture a guess: In that interim, CATSHIRT was walking home from the screening because mass transit was shut down for the night.

I'm going to start a blog called walkoff single. It will only include sexxxxxay pictures of Matt LaPorta. Maybe an occasional Carlos Santana as well.
