Open-air boondoggle

  • About the blog title: Just for today, I promise.

  • I didn't get to watch this game last night because stupid crappy ESPN2 was showing baseball.
    Yes, I realize that baseball is bigger than soccer.
    Yes, I realize that the soccer result was pretty much predicted.
    Yes, I realize that the baseball game had a fight.
    But I still would have liked to have seen the soccer match. They could have put it on ESPN Classic or some such thing.

  • Hooray! Our local boondoggle will not have a roof.

  • How can you not love George Best? Thank you, Georgie, for self-destructing for all our amusement.

  • "The FBI... missed several opportunities to intercept two of the 9/11 hijackers who lived (in San Diego) because agents were focused on drug trafficking instead of terrorism."
    That's just great. The story then goes on to point out that the FBI failed to detect Nawaf Alhazmi and Khalid al-Midhar even though they "lived with an FBI informant."
    If anyone needs me, I will be slamming a door against my head.

  • This woman's family is ridiculously unlucky (see second to last paragraph).

  • I love this site -- cartoons inspired by subject lines of spam e-mails. This is my favorite so far.

  • Good name for a band (as provided by my co-worker, Adam): Exploding Vaginas.

  • Another good name for a band: Crack Snob.

    Speaking of things Adam knows... the game was on espn2 on delay.

    This is a subject it's always wise to ask me about.

    I thought it was wise to consult ESPN's website. They said nothing about a delay. I think you are lying to make me feel bad.

    I like Exploding Vaginas better than Crack Snob. It'd be great if the Exploding Vaginas were a polka band too! That'd be total money.

    I think eliminate a step (the band name) and just name your blog "Exploding Vaginas." Imagine the masthead.

    Hey, by the way, it's Friday and "I Love Bunnies" is still up there. You said the title change was for yesterday only. Come on Chris, I'm breaking out in a rash! Change it, before you start wearing violet pastel and lisping!

    I think the grandmother in that shooting story was SUPPOSED to have been run over by a reindeer. I guess it could have been a typo.
