Things & Stuff

Well, I overdosed on carbs and sugars last night. But I'm all right now.
I also got to watch baseball. The Angels played the Dodgers in an exhibition game that ended in a 2-2 tie (since it was an exhibition game, managers Scioscia and Torre decided to end the game after ten innings). Vlad Guerrero slammed a two-run homer in the first inning...and that was it for the Angels. But that's okay. I'm sure there will be more fun once the season starts next week.
I also got to see some of their rookie pitchers. Darrin O'Day didn't do well at all, and Rick Thompson choked in the top of the 9th. There was some video of Scioscia and pitching coach Mike Butcher chewing Thompson out - the normally impassive-looking Scioscia was obviously pissed - and then Thompson pitched a great 10th inning. Both may be tapped, and soon - there are several Angels pitchers starting on the disabled list, and one may well need surgery that will end his career.
The Angels may have to rely on young talent this year, even moreso than last year.
Elmer: Oh, Mister Game Warden, I hope you can help me. I've been told I can shoot rabbits and goats and pigeons and mongooses and dirty skunks and ducks. Could you tell me what season it really is?
Ever wonder what movies would be like without CGI? Here's one of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies...done with cardboard.
According to this article, a Tennessee-based lawyer says there's no constitutional right to lap dances.
So much for this afternoon.
(Actually, that's a joke. Click here for the entry that explains it all.)
Nothing else to write about. More baseball tonight and Saturday night. Errands to run today, and so on and so forth.
Have a good weekend.
Be seeing you.
