The Pine Tar Jar
The whole Kenny Rogers Pine Tar mess has gotten out of hand (so to speak). The story is a constant on ESPN News as if it was the end of the World Series as we know it. Should he face some kind of suspension? Of course, but don't hold your breath for it to happen.
I'm winding down the Nickname the Offense contest and will be selecting the winner today from quite a list of entiries. THANKS so much for participating. Hope you had as much fun with it as I have had. I'll e-mail the winner today and get your full name and address so I can put your name in Fridays Bozos of Blitz episode and bundle up the prizes that will be coming the winners way. But again thanks for making the contest a blast.
My wife and I didn't get to hear Garry Trudeau last night. My wife was under the weather and we chose at the last minute not to go. If anybody went I'd love to hear about. Drop a comment on the blog if you did.
Just a heads up but in Saturdays paper I'll be doing the 20th version of my annual Halloween costume ideas.
I've still laughing at the book The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid by Bill Bryson. I'm telling you, you've got to buy it. It's a must read. Just a fair warning: The amount of laughter it induces leads to some serious sleep deprivation, but it's worth it.
