If the Brewers could only play their next 145 games against the Pirates it would be sweet! Second place two games behind the Cards is fine, especially after a 4-9 start (meaning 11-3 after that).
PECOTA now has the Brewers coming in 2nd with 83 wins and a 27% chance of making the Playoffs. Cards coming in 1st, Cubs 3rd.
Speaking of dropping the ball - go to this link to see Rick Ankiel go full spead into the outfield fence with only his face to stop himself - UGLY. I think he is 2 inches shorter now. On the bright side when they were carting him off he did give the thumbs sideways sign which was probably the only way his thumb can point now.
The good news this morning is they are talking about when he will play again and not if he can walk again.
And then there is Brett Favre. What a putz! I'm sorry but if he plays for the Vikings (WHY would the Vikings want him???) it tells me he really does not care for the fans that love him in Wisconsin. Seriously - I was giving the guy the benefit of the doubt because and he just loved going out and having fun and flinging the football but . . . . . IF . . . he signs with the Vikings it is a direct insult to Wisconsin fans.
In a way I hope he does sign because 3 of his last 4 years have SUCKED! Now of course the Vikings have Sage Rosenfels, what kind of a name is that for a football player. Sage Rosenfels? Does that strike fear?
LA Film Festival will have Public Enemies as it's centerpiece movie.
The Los Angeles Film Festival announced its lineup for its annual celebration of cinema, and its centerpiece is the L.A. premiere of "Public Enemies," the hotly anticipated gangster film from director Michael Mann starring Johnny Depp as John Dillinger, the legendary Depression-era bank robber, and Christian Bale as his nemesis, the FBI agent Melvin Purvis.
DJ had her wonderful moment in the spotlight yesterday when she was handed her 30 years of Participation In A Government Experiment Award and THEY SPELLED HER NAME WRONG!
At least she was not handed the plaque and told to "Get a Life" by the Attorney General (who shall remain nameless so I'm not thrown in jail) like what happened last year to a 40 year recipient.
I received my 20 year Participation In A Government Experiment Award and there was a big fingerprint in the paint from the prisoner that made it. I will cherish it forever.
Tonight is the first night of golf league so you can look forward to stories of my adventures in my little circle of chaos. That is how my golf game normally is, my own little circle of chaos.
Of course it's going to rain and adubya just told me he has a new rain outfit (I hope it includes a big hat like the outfits at the Kentucky Derby). ME? I'll just take everything off if it rains - I like the freedom. SHWING!!!
OH - I want to thank all the citizens of Wisconsin for thanking ME! Jim Doyle forwarded your thanks to me in a personal email and I appreciate it. I hope he passed the coveted manila envelope for putting dollars in.
"On behalf of Wisconsin’s citizens, I thank you for your hard work and all that you do to make this state a great place to live."
I feel a little tear developing.
I hear that West James Gallery has two new framed photos on display somewhere AND you should comment to Kim on how nice her her brand new postcard holder looks.
Have a nice day
OH for Idol watchers - I like Danny but man did he SUCK last night. I'm thinking I could have sung that song better.
