I hate Florida and all her professional teams

Okay, hate might be a little strong…if I see the Marlins or the Dolphins walking down the street I won’t spit at them, but if they ask me for directions, they will be getting loster.

Paul Newman dies at 83. Last year, in pursuit of my love of poker, I watched a number of very famous Paul Newman movies, The Color of Money, Sting and Cool Hand Luke….
I remember my overwhelming observation being that he was waaaay hotter than Robert Redford. I will no doubt be renting many more Newman movies in the coming months.

Conversation of the Day

Saturday, September 27th, 2008 by Dawn Summers

Otis: If I could just have four things before bed I would be happy: a beer…just one beer, a cigarette, a lap dance and a tattoo.
Me: Every night?
Otis: No, just tonight.
Bad Blood: The only thing I can help you with is the lapdance.
Otis: (Sighs) I’m so sad and lonely.
Me: If you say that one more time I’m going to actually start feeling sorry for you.
Otis: So sad and lonely.
Me (blurts out laughing hysterically) Sorry, actually it got funnier.

I haven’t seen the debate…

But my pseudo Obama/Palin supporting mother says it was a draw. Which would be an Obama loss in my book.

Me: Stupid Rooster knocked me out of the tournament.
Al Can’t Hang: Aww, you busted out? Well, at least the Mets won…ohh, sorry.

Ya Gotta Believe

The song Im a Believer plays before the Mets bat in the eighth inning of every game at Shea Stadium, even on nights, during weeks, in series, when they give their fans ample evidence to feel otherwise. There was plenty of that Thursday night. But anyone who sang along and watched what happened once the tune ended had to have known that no other outcome but a Mets victory would have sufficed.

I’m hearing a lot of negativity from Mets fans these days. To them I say “HEY! YOU! The Mets Suck. They do. If they can blow it, they will. So shut the fuck up and believe. Believe that the Phillies might be exposed to some kind of biohazardous material and be quarantined…the entire Brewers team might eat bad clams and be unable to play…who knows? It could happen. BELIEVE. Ya Gotta. We don’t have anything else.”

By the way, what happens if the Mets and the Brewers stay tied for the wild card? Roshambo?

After midnight it’s a new quote of the day

“John McCain has no sway over House Republicans. Frankly, he only knows how to work with the other side of the aisle. He went to Kennedy to work out the education bill, Feingold for campaign finance…we have no idea where John McCain stands.” – Ed Rollins.

Dude, if you guys don’t want ‘im and we don’t want ‘im…who’s left?

Dude, I didn’t even get any cards
