More Ramblings...

- wadE

Ok...yes, I know we all here at SP took the last couple months off. But I'm guessing you didn't miss us too much.

I'm especially bitter that my last article generated a whopping zero email responses...just for that, I'm not giving you the answers to those brain teasers. If you want answers... (we want the truth!) YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!! I DERIDE YOUR TRUTH HANDLING ABILITY!!! ... um, if you want the answers, just email me.

Pardon the ranting...but hopefully somebody somewhere is enjoying what we do here.

Anyway, I do apologize for the extended absence to those people who do actually read what we put out here. We've been a bit lazy as of late, but we've all been quite busy with other things as well.

However, with a new football season starting, an exciting baseball season ahead, and the atrocious summer movie season behind us, I'm confident we all will have a lot to say over the next few months.

With that said...on to the ramblings...

I know I might be in the minority, but the only Adam Sandler movie I can stand is The Wedding Singer.

You know when you've been playing a video game too much when you start dreaming about strategy.

What is the age at which it becomes stupid to wear jersey's and other sports related clothing? Is there an age? A local sports talk show pundit thinks it is 35...I might agree, but with the caveat that if you are attending a sporting event you are exempt. Also, does this include hats? I think hats are allowable at any age, even if you aren't attending a sporting event. Personally, I hate baseball caps that say "Eddie Bauer" or "Abercrombie & Fitch" on them. If you own and wear one of those, stop reading my site...I don't want your kind here! ;-)

Whatever happened to Clipping? When is the last time you saw Clipping being called in a pro football game? About 5 years ago it disappeared...the only call you get on kickoffs and punts now is "illegal block in the back (above the waist)". I miss clipping...

Did you know that at the Mall Of America they have a home plate shaped plaque in the floor of Camp Snoopy where home plate of the old Metropolitan Stadium used to be? You probably knew that...but did you know that on one of the walls of Camp Snoopy is an old red chair mounted on the wall. That chair is where Harmon Killebrew's longest homerun landed. You need to check it out...it's a long way from home plate.

What is the deal with certain parts of Indiana, and much of Arizona, not going by Daylight Savings time? I mean really! What's not to like about an extra hour of daylight in the evenings. I recently heard the reason they've kept it over the years is that it saves over a hundred million barrels of oil every day. (Think about it...sun is out later, people turn their lights on later...)

Have you seen the trailer for the movie "Comedian"? It's a movie from Jerry Seinfeld. Alex clued me in to the trailer, some where on apple.com, and it's the funniest damn thing I've heard in a while...probably since Seinfeld was on TV. How can one man be so funny to so many...

The older I get, the more I can't understand how Forrest Gump beat out The Shawshank Redemption for Best Picture 1994. And how in the hell did Shakespeare In Love win anything? It was alright...but not Oscar-worthy... bah!

Alright, I better wrap this up...with any luck this will be the beginning of a flood (well, maybe a steady rain) of new articles from us...but I"m not making any promises.
