A Smoking Gun Exclusive.



At first I laughed when I read it, hence the title of this post..some jackass spent untold amounts of money to DRIVE to the Hoover Dam and see it, only to turn around and go home. Bet the kids in the family loved that..

but then I thought about it..and it does add up to quite a bit of money if you had a family of say..four or five. And they do hit ya up in drips and drabs..not all at once so most folks probably wouldnt notice it. And the other side of the coin is that it is fucked up that as a citizen of this country you gotta pay to check out one of our "man-made" wonders if your so inclined..our fucking taxes paid to build the sumbitch..well, theoretically anyway..but on the OTHER side of the coin someone has to pay the upkeep and operating costs on these huge gigantic "wonders" so..I DONT KNOW..do you? Its a subtle form of taxation my opinion. Can't they just sell the naming rights to some big ass corporation like say..Hertz? Sure it would no longer be the Hoover dam..it would be the "Hoover dam brought to you by Hertz Rent-a-car" or perhaps the Hertz-rent-a-car Dam. Hard to say, those corp's drive a hard bargin.

Reading names in the darkness

A group of people who didn't know each other held a candlelight vigil tonite in this redneck, po-dunk town I call home. When I went to the website last nite only 10 people had signed up to participate. This morning it was up to 25 and by the time I left to attend there were 33 participants.

We ended up with 35-50 strangers participating. That's fucking awesome here in bakersfrigginfield. I contacted the local branches of all four networks this morning, and they all showed up but one. Our vigil was the lead story on 3 of the 4 networks.

I started off the reading thanks to the co-ordinator, Carla. Her and I agreed on reading all the names, it took a bit over two hours. I got to read the 212 names from my state of California. The San Joaquin Valley has lost as many young men and women as LA..I didnt know that till tonight.

We had families and people whos ages were from 13 to 73 there. All with a common goal. The vast majority not knowing the person they were standing next to.

It was somber and moving.

I do NOT want to read another 2000 names. I want the war to end. I do not want to go through another decade of protest and raising awareness in my neighbors. But I will if I have to.

The 2000th American has died in Iraq

I try to keep my political convictions to the "other" blog but this one has to be posted on both. There are vigils everywhere tomorrow because people had pledged in advance to do this when the death toll hit 2000. Even in BAKERSFRIGGINFIELD we have one..we only have 10 people..but hell ya gotta start somewhere..

If your tired of the lies from Bush and his cronies if you find you can no longer support a war built on a foundation of deceit and half-truths, if your sick of the bullshit please attend one. this link will tell you where one will be held in your area, all you have to do is put in your zipcode.

Here it is again: http://political.moveon.org/event/events/index.html?action_id=29

show your support if you can. Every person counts..both here and the dead in Iraq. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be doing this again..I figured we learned something from Vietnam..STOP BUSH NOW..TELL HIM WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS WAR BUILT UPON HIS LIES..do it tomorrow..please..

Dunn and Crumpler pulled it out for moi

So...My fantasy team did end up winning..Dunn and Crumpler had great games..thank god!

Course the Stro's just blew a 4 run lead..so all is not well..

Another video but this one has a message..

This short video, done to the "Monster Mash" is courtesy of Clear the Air.org I got it in my morning newsletter from the folks at Tom Paine. Enjoy!

Shit week, the sequel...



Its such a fucking bummer to get a speeding ticket while on Company time..plus the timing of it couldn't be worse..my mood is..lets just say..blue..I was lucky the cop
said..he gave me a break..only wrote me up for 80 in a 65...I was going faster actually AND not wearing my seatbelt..usually I pay attention when I am attempting to break the sound barrier..but the second dead kitten of the weekend kinda put me off guard..

I got home just in time to see the Astro's go ahead..I thought maybe the day wasn't a total waste.....was I wrong? yeah..the ChiSox came back in the bottom of the ninth.. this overall isnt a bad thing..just that I was hanging my hat in the Astro's camp this World Serious..I mean Series..any diversion will do at this point, ya know?

I'm losing in the keeper Football League I am in,however I DO have two players going tomorrow night Alge Crumpler and Warrick Dunn please dont let me down boys I am counting on you like you wouldnt believe..next week I play the fucktard known as the ball and chain..we will keep any discussion of him to a minimum..I haven't figured out what to do and how yet regarding his massive fuckup..

This week holds another delightful torture session at the Russian dentist's office..I think he knew Stalin but I wouldnt swear to it..plus the ball and chain is trying to get me to take a physical,think he's getting life insurance on me or something? I wouldn't put it past him at this point..

but there was a highlight..some very cute cartoons from a beloved friend who knows all the gory details of Shit Week's one and now two.. she made me smile tonight..and GOD knows I needed a smile..and another point of view..
Saturday, October 22, 2005 | By: Dusty Taylor

So you've had a shitty week..let me tell ya about mine.

First off I am working like a dog for the marketing man..its taking its toll on my weakest link, my back and those two hosed up discs...but I got meds for that..

The ball and chain committed a class A marriage felony..seriously, I wont bore you with the details but suffice it to say..Divorce is the usual outcome for this type of offense,If your a smart cookie and I usually think I am most of the time..

This morning I went out to feed the litter of feral kittens in my back yard. The mother, who was a fantastic parent during her first litter has abandoned these. They are old enough to eat cat food, but they are not old enough to be on their own. Five of the little buggers took up residence on my back porch. They have of course grown on me. This morning when I did the head count..one was missing..He was still in the little bed I made up for them..barely alive..breathing very shallow. I rushed him to our family vet, a wonderful man that tolerates my habit of picking up strays very well by giving me free medicene and advice on how to care for them. He did what he could, but it wasnt enough.

I spent the rest of the morning crying and feeling very sad. About all the bullshit, not just the little kitten..he was like the final straw of "Shit Week".

I took a long shower..used ALL the fucking hot water..it felt good washing over me. Having the western worlds smallest hot water heater sucks in times like these..

A bright ray of sunshine popped into my otherwise shitty existance..Scooter was being his nosey self and stuck his head where it doesn't belong..he somehow got a large paper bag with those cardboard-like handles wrapped around his neck..He went flying thru the house doing laps with this bag trailing behind him, all the shit inside the bag launching out as he bounces off doors, couches, table legs..trying like hell to dislodge this bag from around his neck. He wouldnt come to me, he wouldnt stop moving long enough for one of us to grab it and pull it off him. His big round blue eyes even larger than normal. He finally got tired and parked it behind a couch which we had to move to get to him..to remove the damn bag..I almost peed my pants watching him fly down our long hallway with this bag bouncing around behind him..this is not the first time my dipshit cat has stuck his head thru a handle and wasn't smart enough to back out of it..guess he's like our dear President in the fact that he doesn't learn from previous mistakes..

sorry had to get the Political thing in there..

oh and the other highlight..Tommy DeLay our cherish (insert laughter here) and dethroned Majority Leader was booked this week..for his attempt to defraud the citizens of the great state of Texas by laundering money and giving it to Republicans running for office in said State. If you havent seen his mug shot..go to the smokinggun.com..he looks like he's at a fund raising event, big ol smile on his face..hope he wont be smiling soon...

The 101st World Series starts tonight..

Ok..it starts today, the World Series..its been a real shitty week at my house and I haven't spent much time blogging..or doing anything other than working my tired chubby ass off..

I have no idea who is going to win..I would like to see the Houston Astros take it, only because I am basically a National League kinda girl..and they have never ever been there, much less won one..Chicago White Sox last won it all in 1917.. ChiSox last WS appearance was like 1959..

Roger "the Rocket" Clemens will be the starting pitcher for game 1 for the Stros..Rocket is 43 years old..thats ancient by baseball standards..even more so for a pitcher..The Stros have only been in existance for 46 years.. When the Rocket tosses his first pitch he will be the first guy..i think..to have pitched a World Series game in three consecutive decades..also it will be his third team to play in the fall classic the other two being Boston and the Yank$. The Rocket has 7 count em 7 Cy Young awards, the highest honor bestowed upon a pitcher.

I feel both teams are good, both have excellent starting pitchers. The ChiSox hold a slim lead in pitching because their four horsemen can pitch complete games which is unheard of in this day and age.. The Stros have an excellent closer with Brad Lidge and two of their startes..Pettitte and Clemens have World Series experience. The Chisox are a team of home run hitters whilst the Stros depend on speed and small ball to get their runs across home plate..It should be a good series but Fox isn't happy since both are considered small market teams..I know, Chicago isnt a small market, but the ChiSox are the ugly stepchildren of Chicago..the Cubs are Chicago's team it seems..

Before Clemens mom passed away a couple months ago she said the name..Shoeless Joe Jackson(one of the Chicago BlackSox). Seems she knew the Stros would face the ChiSox..I hope Roger Clemens pitches one helluva game tonight and his mom is smiling down on him..She loved the hell out of baseball..as I do..I can't wait to see this man pitch tonight..a man who is almost as old as the franchise he is playing for tonight..GO 'STROS!!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday, October 18, 2005 | By: Dusty Taylor

Tellin' it like it is..in Na'lins..

This is some raw stuff..its from the people that lived there..in New Orleans..its what they are going through NOW and THEN..and what they went through to get HERE and NOW...its more than some folks might be able to handle because its all true, the Oral Histories of the people that survived this act of nature..no News blips, no sound bites..just the "Alive Truth", an oral history of our times..in all its glory..or rather..all its depressing reality..read it if you dare..if you can't, then, admit that you don't want to know the truth,what happened to the residents, what went down..cuz here it is folks..read it and weep..if you can..the link is here.

This blog is never going to be funny all the time..its sometimes humanly sad, or real..depends on your outlook..Knowledge is Power, or so "They"say.. if you think this shit is heavy..go check out the political blog..its downright pathetic what we put up with from those boys we elected to represent us..

Thank you and now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

All the news that fits..

Did I call that game right or what? Pujols saved the Cardinal ass with a top of the ninth homer..Pujols is god..at least in the baseball universe..Cards will get to play another day..this time in their stadium..but Roy-boy Oswalt will be pitching for the Astro's..and he is good..very good..

Dick "Halliburton" Cheney is possibly involved in the Karl Rove debacle now being called Plame-gate..named of course for Valerie Plame, the CIA agent outted by someone in the Bush Whitehouse..Dicky will look real cute in prison garb..so will Karl Rove..and Scooter Libby..we can only hope sportsfans..the Grand Jury has until Oct 28th to indict someone..or if I had my way..ALL of them..

They finally voted on a New Constitution in Iraq..only they are questioning the results..seems there were too many "yes" votes in many of the provinces, 99% to be exact..Sunni Arabs are the minority and they are crying foul, saying some districts had more yes votes than registered voters..rut roh...Hope this doesnt take as long as the Gore-Bush election results did..or as messy..

Colts beat the bejesus out of the Rams Monday night..45-28..sounds like a college score if you ask me..Colts were losing 17-0 at one point..Tampa Bay who has THE best defense in the NFL and currently a 5-1 record has probably lost their QB for the season..that hurts..the backup QB has three years in the NFL..on the bench! Randy "big mouth" Moss took a helluva tumble sunday and has some bruised ribs, a strained groin and a bruised pelvic area while trying to make a leaping catch. As usual the Raiders fucked themselves with penalties even after converting third and fourth down's...morons..I missed Bill Romanowski's 60 Minutes interview Sunday night..I was friggin working..but I am sure he ran his mouth and tried to make others look worse than his steroid-taking ass. OH YEAH..he just wrote a book..reminds me of Jose Canseco..does anyone believe a word that comes out of his mouth? I rest my case. Joe Gibbs got a 10K fine for bitching about the calls in a Redskins game to the press..what happened to turning the other cheek there Joe? Now we know where Tony Stewart got his mouth at lol...Tedy Bruschi is ready to play football again, just eight months after suffering a stroke and having surgery to close a hole in his heart..I know the Patriots aren't doing too well this season, but I hope he's in great shape, he must really love the game..or need the money..

thats all i got..its almost time for the sun to come up..gotta try and get some sleep..
Monday, October 17, 2005 | By: Dusty Taylor

This evenings post is going to be very short..

We are getting a major storm..time to batten down the hatches and turn off the computer..

before I do...I think the Cards will win tonight..and therefore give themselves another day...
Sunday, October 16, 2005 | By: Dusty Taylor

Football,baseball and any other sports..

Chargers kicked some Oakland ass today...but I was hoping Oakland would at least show up..

Astro's won again..one more and they will be going to the big show..come on stros!

Chisox are almost there..Angels are down to their last hurrah..

Gotta go back to work..lata..
Thursday, October 13, 2005 | By: Dusty Taylor

Oswalt was money tonight..

I think the only way the Stros will win this series is if Oswalt and the Rocket win,which Roy Boy did tonight...reminds me of the D'backs winning year..it was Schilling and Johnson that year...Randy coming in to relieve Schill..but I digress..

Mulder has been a disappointment to me this year..only cuz I had the sumbitch in like 10 fantasy baseball leagues..the Cards should be able to count on Marky Mark to hold the Stro's at bay..but they couldn't, he gave up too many hits to a team that usually has an anemic offense, Julian Tavarez did the rest of the damage from the Cards bullpen. The Killer B's of past years, sans Bags, showed up with Berkie and Biggio having great nights.

Next game Sat...Clemens will be facing Pujols..Prince Albert might not have anyone hitting behind him, with Reggie coming up lame (like thats news) and Walker is MIA for the playoffs..which means they could walk Pujol's ass every time he's up..who knows..I can't wait..

Bobbie and HNT


Thats Bobbie, the formerly feral kitten..

she really wanted to participate in HNT.

I finally gave in..only because Bobbie really busted my ass on this..and Bobbie always gets what she wants..she bugs me till she does..
Wednesday, October 12, 2005 | By: Dusty Taylor

Did you know...

There are three brothers in the League Championship series..two on the same team....all three are catchers as well..the Molina's...from Puerto Rico..Yadier, Jose and Bengie.

That ump in the Angels/ChiSox game tonite..shame on him..bet he doesn't work next years LCS.

Where the Hell is Fall?

I have been waiting oh so patiently for it..really, I have..I am tired of wearing shorts, I want to be able to wear a pair of jeans and be comfortable. I bought a pair of fuzzy slippers today in anticipation of cooler weather approaching and the b&c drug me out to look at a new heater for the house..boy was I fucking wrong...

its gonna be in the 90's this weekend..jesus christ..

oh well, the cats are getting a charge out of the new fuzzy slippers..I wont be wearing them any time soon..

Angels beat the ChiSox for game 1..I am winning in BOTH of the pay leagues I am playing fantasy football in..first place baby with an indentical 4-1 record! I am sucking ass in the 4 free yahoo leagues however..I am considering playing along on HNT...

I got nothing else..where the fuck is fall?

Baseball News..its the silly season..

OK....Stro's over the cards, their pitching is better lately..

Angels over the Chisox..just cause..but i wouldn't whine if the Chisox won either..

Managers getting tossed as well as a couple GM's..like Hart for the AssRangers as Daisy calls them. Then ZAM is a Stros's fan. For Cards blogger buds we got Alice and Bruce. Angels fans I count among Jerry as one of them. I dont think I know any Chisox fans on the web..
Sunday, October 09, 2005 | By: Dusty Taylor

Big Brotha...perhaps..

I was over at the blog of a blogbud who was telling all the lurkers to post a comment since her hits were high but comments not even close..so for the fuck of it I checked mine..most bloggers have a site meter which provides lots of useless information..

Over on my Political Rant's blog I do not get squat for hits which is fine. I blog there for my personal right to express my beliefs and opinions on our government..I was going to close the site meter page when one ISP caught my eye..atfonline.gov..alcohol,tobacco and firearms came to mind..so I clicked on the hit to see more...kinda got my attention at 11:36 am on a Sunday, which is when they came to visit over there..Specifically my post about the latest bs on Karl Rove..this is what I saw:


Domain Name (I removed the website address)(United States Government)
IP Address 199.196.144.# (Executive Office of Asset Forfeiture)
199.196.144.16
ISP :Executive Office of Asset Forfeiture
Location

Continent :North America
Country : United States (Facts)
State:Virginia
City :Dulles

Its a restricted site for the Department of Justice. Bunch of government mumbo jumbo on the webpage so I closed the window quickly. But the city location is very important. Dulles is quite close to the Pentagon..I know because I lived down the road from the Pentagon for years in Northern VA. I never went to the Pentagon, I never had a desire or reason to go there..plus its not like you can tour the friggin place..

Now a blogger friend said..bfd..she gets hits all the time..bored civil servants reading blogs..everyone does it at work now...but the DOJ..and a restricted site to boot..usually you can not surf the web when you work in a restricted capacity..they dont want hackers getting the web address and fucking up the servers and such..or worse yet, taking information from them..and since I am not a hacker, I would not have a clue on what to do or how to do it..

I just hope those sumbitches arent' monitoring my blog and I hope to hell they enjoyed the shit out of my commentary about Karl Rove :)..as Zombieslayer and others like to point out..we got the First Amendment on our side..freedom of speech..but that doesnt stop the Bush Administration from attempting to curtail our freedoms and our rights using the Patriot Act as their free hall pass. Bush calls those that oppose the war in Iraq evil and Unamerican..I call it my right to be left of the center.

Bum call sinks the Angels..

well, it was bum..ain't no doubt about it..but they will play again tomorrow, in Anaheim.

The Braves put up a valiant fight..freaking 18 innings..2 games worth for gods sake..what an epic..Stro's advance with the Rocket pitching relief..fucking classic no? Can't wait to see the Rocket against Pujols..who has thunder thighs like tree trunks..but i digress..

Ozzie and the ChiSox are kicking it till Wednesday when the League Champ. Series get underway...in a little less than 2 days...I am not going to put up the time..mainly because Sportsline isn't running it for the LCS...lol..

Astros moving on up..

Braves lost again..poor Booby Cox..I was rooting for the Astros dont you know :)

Its going to be the Cards and Stros..both from the same division..could get ugly sportsfans...

tonite its the Angels trying to slam the door on the Yank$..GO ANGELS..KICK THAT NEW YORK ASS!

sorry bout the caps..
Saturday, October 08, 2005 | By: Dusty Taylor

The pain, the horror..

when your starting Pitcher can't get out of the second inning..yes sportsfans, Woody Fucknut Williams is the Cardinals MVP of the game..he gave them a 5-0 headstart tonight..

But the 'Stros won....so I say Go 'Stros!

The Angels/Yank$ game was rained out..its gonna be a busy Sports Sunday here..the Angels can take it all tomorrow..to the chagrin of all Yank$ fans..get out the voodoo dolls kids..

The Padres played their first(and last for this series I am quite sure) playoff game in their new home, Petco aka PetFood Park..its a spacious field, utilizing part of the history of downtown San Diego as part of the Outfield wall..Larry Lucchino, the head cheese for the BoSox was at the helm when the design and layout took place..as he was for the O's Camden Yard. He has his stamp on alot of teams in MLB..

Have a good sports sunday, I know I will with Foosball, Hockey and two playoff games.

A moment of silence on a moment in time...


The Red Sox..they got swept..after winning it all last year from the Wildcard spot..they got swept like the ugly step child by the Chicago White Sox..it was only a 5 game series..so it took 3 games..but it sucked ass..and hurts...sniff..sniff..I am so depressed..but on a lighter note..the Evil Empire got their clock cleaned AT HOME by the Cali/Anaheim/Los Angeles/Orange County Angels tonite..so the monkey-waving fools can lose tomorrow and the final game will be played on their home turf at Anaheim Stadium..we can only hope sportsfans..its all I got left to hope for..the Padres are pitching Woody fucknut Williams tomorrow..and I dont have a good feeling about him..they will get swept at home..a win would be nice, but really it will only prolong the enevitable..Stros still got a shot..

I am all verklempt..talk amongst yourselves..i know i have alot of typos..ask me if i give a shit..
Thursday, October 06, 2005 | By: Dusty Taylor

ok..it cant be real, but its sure friggin funny..

I was over at Kitten's blog..and she posted a link to what purports to be Harriet Miers blog..you know..the old crow that has never been a judge that Bush the moron put up for the next Supreme Court Justice..its a hoot..go check it out..someone put alot of time and effort into this puppy..hey it killed the better part of an afternoon for moi, what can i say?

Padres are down for the count..CARDS will be advancing to the next round of the playoffs..thank god hockey started up..and still a month and a half for Foosball..

WHERE'S THE F**KING REMOTE HONEY?

I worked a long day yesterday, got home in time to catch the yank$-angels game. All I wanted to do was stretch out my tired body on the big ol bed accompanied by various cats and dogs..and watch one of the days games..

I couldn't find the remote..the ball and chain had used it last the evening before..so i went up to the living room and asked the question..where is my remote dear?

His response..I dont know..my next response..you used it last dear..find the fucker..

now..ESPN is on channel 102..the tv was set to channel 7..brillant deduction says thats alot of pushes on the manual button but i went for it..only took a min or two..and cramped up my tired fingers..but hey..i was there..

The ball and chain finally brings his ass back to the bedroom..he looks around the same areas i did..gee its not here..no shit sherlock..

He says..the cats must of done something with it..I say:ok, which one of you cats picked up the remote and hid it? fess up you bastards..

None of the cats said a word..they just stared at me..

The ball and chain starts wandering up to the living room again..i jump in front of him..YOUR NOT LEAVING TILL YOU FIND THE REMOTE ASSCLOWN..i say rather authoritatively..

he starts whining and i hold up the hand..i will hold YOUR remote hostage till you find mine..i say sweetly with a smile on my face.

he had to crawl under the bed..which is where i figured it was to begin with..this is a major undertaking for his ass, he is short armed and has a gut that would make a trucker proud..

he slaps the remote into my open palm and gives a look that should of struck me dead..i hand him back his remote for the living room TV..thank you i say, nice doing business with you!

he mumbles incoherently whilst walking the half block back up to the living room..

The angels won..it was worth pissing him off for.. :)

At least the 'Stros won today..

with that said..another funny tale...this one borrowed from the "funny girl network".

She spent the first day packing her belongings into boxes, crates, and suitcases.On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her things.On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table by candle light, put on some soft background music and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of Chardonnay. When she had finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half-eaten shrimp shells, dipped in caviar, into the hollow of the curtain rods. She then cleaned up the kitchen and left.

When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days. Then, slowly, the house began to smell. They tried everything, cleaning, mopping and airing the place out. Vents were checked for dead rodents, and carpets were steam cleaned. Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during which they had to move out for a few days, and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting. Nothing worked. People stopped coming over to visit. Repairmen refused to work in the house. The maid quit. Finally, they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move out. A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, they could not find a buyer for their stinky house. Word got out, and eventually even the local realtors refused to return their calls.Finally, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place. The ex-wife called the man and asked how things were going. He told her the saga of the rotting house. She listened politely and said that she missed her old home terribly, and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for getting the house back. Knowing his ex-wife had no idea how bad the smell was, he agreed on a price that was about 1/10th of what the house had been worth, but only if she would sign the papers that very day. She agreed, and within the hour his lawyers delivered the paperwork.

A week later, the man and his girlfriend stood smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home -- including the curtains and curtain rods.

Don't you just love a happy ending?

Photobucket isn't working it seems..

which explains why none of my pics and graphics are appearing,fyi..

yesterday the evil empire aka the Yank$ won..defeating the Cali/Anaheim/Los Angeles/Orange County Angels..Boston and my beloved Padres lost as well..thank you my dear readers for your condolences..we also found out the Pad's best Pitcher,Jake Peavy, is out for the remainder of the playoffs..broken rib from being jumped on when they celebrated the clinching of the Division..can you say DUMB ASS...who is jumping on people's ribcage over winning the division in the worst possible way..jesus christ in a thong get a grip dudes..

Today we got Andy Pettitte going for Houston against Tim Hudson for the Braves...Huddy is either very good or anemic, his walk to K(strikeout) ratio is shit-tay..Andy has beaten the Bravos four times and Huddy hasn't won a game against the Stros yet..GO Stro's!

Bahston is sending out David "fat ass" Wells to face the ChiSox's Mark Buehrle...good luck fat ass I hope this is one of your good outings..god help us if it isn't..

Time for a little brevity..baseball aint going so well..

Twelve priests were about to be ordained. The final test was for them to line up in a straight row, totally nude, in a garden while a sexy, beautiful, big breasted, nude model danced before them. Each priest had a small bell attached to a strategic organ of his anatomy and they were told that anyone whose bell rang when she danced in front of them would not be ordained because he had not reached a state of purity. The beautiful nude model danced before the first candidate, with no reaction. She proceeded down the line with the same response from all of the priests until she got to the final priest, Carlos. Poor Carlos. As she danced, his bell began to ring so loudly that if Flew off, clattering across the ground and laid to rest in nearby foliage.
Embarrassed, Carlos quickly scrambled to where the bell came to rest. He bent over to pick it up......
Then all the other bells started to ring.

Padres flogged by the Cards..and now this..

Matt Clement, Boston pitcher, who closely resembles Abe Lincoln with that chin hair...gave up a shitload of runs to start the Bosox-Chisox game off well...insert tongue in cheek..

think i might go back to work..

Jim Edmonds..you sumbitch.

I had you in every single friggin league I had in fantasy baseball. You did SQUAT all freaking year, having THE fucking weakest Batting Avg (BA) in your entire career...you got the nads to hit one out in your first AB(at bat) of the series...

Thank you, you fucking killjoy..

3 hours, 52 minutes and 18 seconds....

That's when the first game of the baseball playoffs begins. And its none other than St Looey and my Padres..now the odds makers are saying the Cards in 4 games..I ain't saying shit..just know that the reason I am going to work at 6 friggin 30 in the morning is to have my happy ass back home by start of said game..

Boston and the White Sox..seeing as how the ChiSox have a lousy bullpen..I say Beantown Brawlers take it in 5 games..only cuz their bullpen aint all that either..plus David Ortiz is the man..I swear he has a large "S" on his tee shirt underneath that uniform..

Angels vs. Yank$..Angels and I dont care how many games it takes..but the Yank$ offense has woken up lately so anything is possible..When Pay-rod, Jeter and Sheff are hitting well, you can't stop those fuckers..get out your rally monkeys, I took the dogs monkey away from her last night so I can wave it like a moron if needed....hey it worked for them their last trip to the World Series.

Houston vs. Braves..Bravcs only cuz even a blind freaking squirrel can occasionally find a nut. The Astro's closer is da shit but their bats are anemic as hell. I look for this to be a low scoring series..I want the Astros but wouldnt be surprized if Atlanta wins with the "Jones" boyz hitting on all cylinders..

Enjoy the playoffs..pray for my Padres..please..those short bus riders need all the love they can get..

Sports and nuttin but..

No politics this morning, I have a headache...

The baseball playoffs begin in 1 day 5 hours 39 min. and 26 seconds. Both the Yank$ and the Bosox are in there. The Indians had a meltdown of historic proportions, rivaled by only the Angels of the late 80's and early 90's. Due to some archaic rule the AL East ended up with both top teams in the division tied AND going to the playoffs..its a dumb rule, thats all i gotta say...just remember this...the boys from Boston won it all from the Wild Card spot last year..nuff said..when the playoffs start Tuesday Morning, the first game of the day will be MY Padres and the St.Louis Cards. My boys finished two friggin games over .500 and I am fairly sure this is some sort of disgusting record for a team winning a divison in Baseball. Being a nightowl, I just heard Buster Olney say at 4am pacific time: the Padres are going to move on to the second round over the Cards..jesus christ is that guy drunk or something? But you know sportsfans..i do want my padres to win this round of the playoffs, i just dont feel its possible..i mean, come on..the realist says they are going down..the baseball fan in me thinks anything is possible..GO PADRES!!

The Other San Diego team, the Chargers, beat up on the Super Bowl winning Patriots Sunday..beat them like the proverbial ugly step child..41-17..but in all fairness, the Pats are beat up and injured on the defensive side of the ball..still...sure feels good! The brother's Manning both looked good this week. Cinncinati is 4-0...huh..no shit?? Does anyone remember the Icky Shuffle?? Redskins are unbeaten as well..true story..When I lived in upper VA, about 15 minutes from D.C., I had a friend who shared my love of football. She had a Brother and Father that were rabid Redskin fans...The Skins tickets were VERY hard to come by seeing as how RFK didnt hold alot of folks and in their heydey, the Skins sold alot of season tix..anyways, my friend calls me one Saturday morning and tells me her dad is in the hospital, possible heartattack. I give my condolences and she interrupts me. She says, "dad is going to be fine, and Mom gave me the tickets to tomorrows skins game,before my brother could get his hands on them." These seats were SOOOOO damn good, field level 50 yard line. IT seems the family held an impromptu meeting in the hospital room about who was going to get the tickets until Dad was well enough to go his own self..her brother threw a hissy-fit when Daddy said sister woman should get the honor since her love was deeper for the Skins than the son's. Dad almost had another coronary when the son said he was going to the family home and grab them up post haste..The doctors and nurses had to toss said son out of the room for upsetting Dad,who was screaming loud enough to be heard throughout the floor..they are Italian..nuff said.. :)

Correction..the Braves have only won 14 straight division titles..not 18..my bad. :)

Best pitching staff in the play0ffs..Houston Astros..The Rocket, Pettitte, and Oswalt..them boyz are good..especially in a five game series..

Our quote of the day..subject: War

An inglorious peace is better than a dishonorable war.- Mark Twain,"Glances at History," 1906

Anyone that calls the Iraq war honorable is sadly screwed up in my opinion...I love Mark Twain which explains why I use his writings and thoughts. This quote is one year shy of 100 years old..I think it works today as well as it did then.

Baseball update

The sadly sucky-assed Padres did clinch their divison Thursday evening..barroid bonds did not rescue those dipshits to the north, the Giants..they are getting Tee times for their golf games..not playing in the post season.

The Chicago White Sox also clinched their division and this seems right to me. Hopefully they will pull their head out of their collective ass and be able to win their first round of playoff games..

The Atlanta Braves as per usual won their division. This is not news to most baseball fanatics such as I. They have won something like 18 straight division titles..bfd..they only have ONE World Series ring to show for all those titles..For some reason they choke when it really counts..tsk tsk..

The Cali/Anaheim/Los Angeles/Orange County Angels also won their division..good luck boys, your gonna need it.

The St. Looey Cards won their divison and will have the honor of meeting my Padres in the first round of the Playoffs..oh goody..methinks they will beat the bejesus out of those boys from San Diego but who knows...I am hoping God is a Padre fan..I heard she does love the new uniforms..frankly I think their butt-ugly..but who am I to argue with God about such things right?

The Wildcard representatives are still up in the air..Houston is currently holding a one game lead over the Phillies for the honor of representing the National League..GO STROS!!!

The American League team is going to be one of three teams..Boston, Yank$ or the Indians..since the Indians blew it tonight in an extra innings extravaganza..and the Yanks lost to Boston tonite..can i get an amen?? :).. the Yank$ hold a one game lead over the Indians for said wildcard berth. The Bosox and the Yank$ are playing a nailbiter of a series to end the season..so this thing could go down to the last day of the regular season.. I am personally rooting for the Indians and Boston..nothing says lovin like watching a grown man have a coronary which might happen if the Yanks lose the series to Boston and Steinbrenner blows his lid..the series is being played in Boston's historic Fenway Park. I lived in the Fenway area for five years and I loved it there..beautiful old part of the city and chock full of hookers as I recall..we used to sit in the window on warm summer nights, seven stories above the street and keep track of which hookers made the most trips around the block in some John's car..we would make book on which one we thought would win our stupid little game..doesnt take much to amuse some folks ya know??
