Unbelievable. I had this whole blog ready to go when my damn work computer freezes and now I have to retype everything. Not a happy camper. Anyways, here we go again. Now I am not a writer nor do I pretend to play one on TV so bare with me and I hope I can entertain you for a couple minutes. It can’t be any worse than what is usually on here.
Beanie is in Italy now with our parents visiting our sister who is overseas for a study abroad program. I do not feel that I am missing out at all since they are there to attend a cooking school where they will learn things such as the difference between basil and parsley. Does anyone know? Whats that? No one cares? Me either but Beanie loves it. Cough Homo cough cough. Second reason I don’t care to go there is anything historical I can see in a book and I’m not a fan of the smelly stuck up Europeans. I think they act that way because they know Americans are dominate in all aspects of government and life. I mean have we given any reasons to think otherwise? Oh we have? I dont believe it. I mean what other country would allow a black man to be nominated for the President of the United States. Only in America. What? A number of other countries have black men, even women, as leaders. No F-ing way. I will believe when I see it. I don’t know why people think Americans are ignorant just because we ignore whats wrong in our country and still think we are the best. Thats just good old fashion patriotism. U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
So I want to continue on what J had to say yesterday about the Indians. Yes I give them credit for playing tough all year even though they were out of it in May and Cliff Lee made every fifth game a must see (including tonight against the BoSox) By the way Cliff’s wife is absolutely gorgeous and his kid has a sweet mohawk. I have no blog or any followers to have any backing to this claim but I predicted the Indians would not make the playoffs this season. And I will explain to you why. We have all seen a pattern with this team; 2005=good, 2006=bad, 2007=great, 2008=bad. The reason for this pattern is having expectations and not handling pressure. In 2005, everyone said this team is a year away from contending and what do they do? They need to win one game against KC to clinch a wild card and get swept (pressure? choke? yes, pattern starts right there). In 2006, everyone said look how good they played at the end of last year, they will definitely make the playoffs. What do they do? They finish about 20 games out of first place. In 2007, everyone says well who knows what they will do this year, they sucked last year. What happens? They come within a game of reaching the World Series. Down 3-1 they realized they were expected to get to the WS and then lose 3 straight. In 2008, they were so good last year they are a sure in to make the World Series. And we all know what happened this year. These guys choke under pressure, its a given. They handle pressure about as well as the girl who is being chased by a deranged psycho killer and chooses to run upstairs rather than outside. I blame wedge.
Romeo is becoming an embarassment. His conferences are a joke and he looks confused at all times. I can’t wait for Romeo to be in those Coors Light commercials that will have him just stare blankly at the beer guys while not knowing how to answer their questions except with a “we have to look at the tape” or “not sure” comment. I am afraid the Browns have turned into the Tribe when dealing with pressure and expectations. Thank goodness LeBron will not let that happen with the Cavs.
I also wanted to write about Tim Donaghy going to prison today but I’m pissed after writing about the Indians and I realize no one cares about him anymore. Al lI know is he must have done something or said something good to get his 25 years turned into a 15 month stay at a minimum security prison.
