This is a picture of one of the Goldens at the Westminster Dog Show. The winning dog was a Scottish Deerhound. A Scottish who now? If I was judging, and I saw this Golden in the back stage area I politely would have told everyone that the show was over, and then I may have tried to steal the dog. I think The National Dog Show should start fan voting like American Idol.
The Albert Pujols deadline passed. No contract. I guess this means Pujols will hit the open market. If you are St. Louis do you still try to negotiate, or does that just annoy Albert more at this point? I have a feeling Albert didn’t want an extension that badly. I’m also tired of hearing the idiots call sports radio talking Ryan Howard for Pujols. Pujols is going to veto any trade morons, open up the ear devices and listen. I may have to ban sports radio, local host Tony Bruno said this afternoon that Dave Hollins, “had a great arm in right field.” And, part of me wept.
I don’t know if there are any pro wrestling fans out there…I certainly am not a fan, but I do like the sound bites the wrestlers give when they are good at them. No one was ever better than this than The Rock. One of my college roommates watched wrestling and would always grab me when the Rock was about to do one of his bits. Well, the Rock came back to Monday Night Raw this week. I saw the link, thought about it, and then watched him do his thing for about 15 mins. Can’t act a lick, but can still captivate the wrestling crowd. I think his ovation probably betters the one Cliff Lee gets opening day.
A Central Bucks East (suburban Philly) high school teacher, Natalie Munroe, lost her job over her blog. It appears the material that got her in trouble has been taken down, but from what I understand it was dotted with rants against high school students. She called them lazy, unmotivated, etc. So, basically, she was venting the truth about high school kids. The blog was as general as possible, not listing specific names, and Munroe claims it was about the education system in general, and not her specific classes. Is this appropriate behavior for a teacher? Is firing her the solution? Now they’ve created a whirlwind of attention, Munroe will get her 15 mins, there will a possible lawsuit, she could come out on the other side with another job, or some BS writing gig…wouldn’t it just be easier to let her have her blog? Teaching is a nightmare at times I imagine, just like any other job. Should she have kept it more private? Yeah, but to think every other teacher isn’t out there nodding their head in agreement is insane.
Quiz of the Day: Dum Dum Lollipop Flavors. Category: Uh, Dum Dums. My Score: 20/32.
Not sure what to make of my score. There was a time when I was no stranger to the Dum Dum. They used to hand them out at a diner to all the cute little kids like me. Big Ups Minella’s! But, it was a dangerous game. God forbid you get banana. Anything but banana! See, I’m giving free answers again.
