I Was Just Thinking....



  • Real men don't cry. Real men don't lie either. Roger Clemens was acquitted yesterday of all charges that he lied to Congress when he denied using performance enhancing drugs to extend his baseball career. What the? I can't believe it. We all know he lied about using so how could the jury not know? His friends, his trainer, those closest to him all took the heat to protect The Rocket and his good name. They admitted, under oath, to being injected with steroids, but we are expected to believe that Roger wouldn't? And for that matter, what good name? Clemens has tarnished, torched and blew up that name so that he can pretend that he never used steroids.  And that's the thing with liars, their lies become truths in their own minds. And now those blurred lines have a verdict to fuel their fire. Still won't get him into Cooperstown.  
  • It's five o'clock somewhere. Actually, it's 4 o'clock in the afternoon in Uganda where Frack is now spending day one of his three week mission. They arrived early this morning about 12:40 am EST and are halfway through day one of the expedition. I pray he takes good care of himself and the group, as he was voted Team Leader. Wouldn't it be great if I could get him to "Team Lead" his homework this fall? I miss that kid so much already and it's only day one. One day at a time, mom.
  • Long live Rock! So I'm watching TV last night and I see this Pet Smart commercial about the new Brett Michaels Pet's Rock collection for your pets. It's an exclusive line designed by the rocker that offers, bowls, beds, toys, leashes and apparel for that Rock Star pet in your life. Brett Michaels? Isn't that the guy that won the Celebrity Apprentice a while back? Is this what that trophy gets you? Somewhere the Gods of Rock and Roll are having a good, hearty laugh about this one. And speaking of Rock and Roll, I'm thinking I'd like to go and see the "Rock of Ages" movie this weekend. The theater geek in me will not be denied, but the Tom Cruise fan, even though I think he's a douche, wants to watch Cruise make history. Rumor has it there are some stellar performances from Cruise, Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin. Worth the take, I say. 
  • Forever a Townie. I watched "The Town" last night. I had never seen it and dang, if that wasn't a great movie. Jeremy Renner was fabulous but Ben Affleck??(be still my heart) was HAWT! Who knew a Boston accent could be so sexy? This guy could steal my heart any day, and I didn't even know I liked him. The movie, based on the novel, "The Prince of Thieves" is set in Charlestown, MA and Affleck and his group of thugs are major bank thieves. This one never stops delivering from start to finish and if you haven't seen it, like me, I highly recommend it. Two Daily Dandy thumbs way up!

I cry. Like a big baby.

Hell, I'm still pissed that John Edwards got off..um, yeah...Got Off...

I think Rock Of Ages is gonna be a MASSIVE FLOP.

and in closing, Brett Michaels is a WHORE, not a rocker.

Clemens is still guilty in the court of public opinion. He will still eventually get in to the Hall, I believe. But it's gonna be a while before voters wrap their brains around the Steroid Era.

What I believe most of them will eventually agree to is that the major names (Clemens, Bonds, McGwire, Sosa, etc...) were probably using them, but the MLB didn't don enough to stop them from using them. And since we don't know who or how many players used them, you can't exclude a very few from the Hall when their statistics overwhelmingly suggest they should be there.

Mantle and Aaron and hundreds of others popped "greenies" like they were M&M's. Amphetamines surely don't build strength like steroids do (we think), but they definitely enhanced performance. And so it goes...

PS - The Town was also directed or written by Affleck. He did a great job with that.

Man, I just cannot effing STAND Tom Cruise (but I even hated him during the whole Risky Business heydey), but I've heard the movie is good. Maybe I'll see it when it's on cable. Or not.
CAN'T PEOPLE GET RID OF WORD VERIFICATION? It's torture. Is it on my blog? I don't even know. Shit.
