Even a plain man with a mustache can get on TV as long as he has “Fox” on his cheek. What drives a grown man to sellout so hard just to have his face known for a brief second?

Baseball: Buy some close seats and curse at someone who makes more money than you.
Worried about the cold weather affecting your golf swing? Worry no more. With weather.com, you’ll know just how to dress for the golf course tomorrow. The link brings us to this page, which leads with: Low temperatures won’t keep a hardy soul off the golf course. Why should they? Take the following steps to make [...]
Like a child distracted by jingling car keys, we’re all too busy creaming ourselves over Phelps to see anything else. John Edwards cheated on his cancer-stricken wife during the Presidential campaign she encouraged him to run, even though she was in awful shape. Russia worked up a massive boner and has been waving it in [...]
The Royals are 27-32 at home. After last night, they are 1-9 when I attend. Home winning percentage: 46% Me winning percentage: 10% I must be emanating some awful aura that spreads through the stadium and affects this team.
LA Times: With the Games due to start in less than three weeks, Beijing today cranked up anti-pollution measures by yanking cars off the roads, expanding mass transit and staggering work hours in a bid to meet its pledge of a “green” Olympics. Maybe we should just let China have every Olympics for now on. [...]
I hate the Yankees. I hate how the media stroke and drool over the Yankees much more. Every week, there’s a new Joba Chamberlain story. I don’t know much about the guy personally, but I wish him nothing but utter failure. I hope he has a mental or physical breakdown that ends his career. I [...]
Yesterday, I posted the audio of Jose Guillen blowing his l lid. I couldn’t find audio or video of it anywhere, so I started streaming and rolling tape on 810 WHB. I wanted to capture it and share it with people who were looking for it on a little thing called “The Internet.” Heard of [...]
Thanks to my brother Bob for making me realize just how bad the Royals are. Wow. Just, wow. What a collapse, what a horrible team, what a long baseball season. Something has to be done to shake up the roster, today. And Nunez going on the DL doesn’t count. The only good thing that came [...]
American Gladiators showed up on my DVR – new season, baby! Here’s the episode description: A single mother takes on a Chernobyl survivor; a store owner battles with a carpenter. This Chernobyl survivor better be deformed. Update: No visible deformation. It’s a 2-hour episode. Is that necessary? I have no problem completely shutting off my [...]
It’s called Men’s “C” league for a reason. Douchebags.
I went to the Kansas City Roller Warriors Saturday night with Heather, Amanda and their Chris Cakes brethren. I haven’t attended too many odder things. Popping a squat? I’ve seen Roller Derby on TV before, but never in person. This guy needs to be available for rentals I couldn’t make out any faces from where [...]
I went to my first Royals game of the year tonight. My goal for the year is 20 games, so if you’re in the KC metro and hankering for some Royals, hit me up. It was a good time. That new HD scoreboard is pretty sweet. They throw lots of information up there. It’ll take [...]
April 7, 2008 – Downtown Lawrence after KU wins its third national championship.
I have some pictures and stories to share from my night in Lawrence for the Jayhawk’s national championship victory. However, I need to regrow some brain cells before I can write good. If I weren’t so confused on the definition of “irony,” I might say blogging about not blogging was ironic.
Tons of Royals games are in HD this year. Yesterday was the first game. Channel 1496 was scheduled to show the game, but I couldn’t find it on my guide or even type it in manually. Last night, Time Warner sent an update to my box, and the channel appeared after the hour-long reboot [...]
Good news! I’m alive! My brother Tom tricked me into playing indoor soccer. Tonight was our first game. As expected, I was out of breath 90 percent of the time. Also true to form, I took a soccer ball to the face. I’d say it was the defensive play of the game. Police sketch of [...]
I can’t get enough of this video from my good friend Chris Casey (see his YouTube channel here).
I went to Manhattan last weekend to catch up with some friends. We went to Kite’s Saturday night. I learned two main things. 1. K-State basketball fans suck. K-State lost to Baylor Saturday night. Like KU fans trying to follow football (see this post), K-State basketball fans really don’t understand the game. They jeer at [...]
I have a feeling Roger Clemens will be indicted for perjury in his Congressional testimony. Lost in all the baseball hubbub is a steroid crisis unfolding in front of America right on network television. One of our favorite past times is in peril, and no one says a word. First, take a look at the [...]
