|Round and Round|
Despite Jimmie Johnson's best late lap efforts, Matt Kenseth won yesterday's Auto Club 500 in Cal-E-For-Nee-Yah. It would have been nice to see Johnson take the checkered - and better for my pool - but I've always liked Kenseth. He's a hard worker and a class act; unlike some drivers I can mention.
And speaking of a-holes, how about that Tony Stewart? Stewart blew and engine late in the race, and finished dead last. HA!
In case I haven't mentioned it before, Major League Baseball sucks. Don't get me wrong, I still like to watch the minor league Camden Riversharks, but I can't handle the pro game anymore. Maybe it has to do with the fact that the Philadelphia Sillies are my home team.
I despise the Sillies, and all of the Kool-Aid drinkers that blindly swear their allegiance to this god-awful team. Anyway, if the Sillies didn't lose me with their dreadful play and bad personnel decisions, they lost me this weekend. The Sillies announced that broadcaster extraordinaire Harry Kalas will be paired with corporate suck-up Chris Wheeler for a total of six innings now. Kalas and Wheeler hate each other, and it appears that the Sillies are making life miserable for Kalas, who is in the final year of his contract.
This makes perfect sense: screw a local icon by putting him with the most hated broadcaster in the city's history. Hell, even writers for the city's most liberal rags despise Wheeler. Of course, the Sillies' management doesn't care a whit for the fans or their wishes.
And they wonder why they don't have a following in this town.
Riding the Wave of Victory
Well, with the playoffs only a week away, The X-Men are building some momentum. We beat Battalion last night by a score of 6-2, and are looking pretty sharp. (This may have to do with the fact that I couldn't make the game because of work, but . . . ) Our last regular season game is on Wednesday night, with the opening game of the playoffs start on Monday.
