Too Late

I'm going to sleep--tell me who wins.

My lack of interest borders on the supernatural...

It was a landslide. Hillary Rodham Clinton won through write-in votes by 90% of registered voters who were deeply disgusted with Obama and McCain and their "politics-as-usual" approach.

That's actually pretty funny!


Being grouchy about baseball's All Star game is practically un-American.

No, no. Stats fans are often not very big on the ahem, Midsummer Classic.

True--but it was an exciting game (at least the first 13 innings).

Being bored by baseball is something experienced by 65% of Americans, and another 25% of them are just too embarassed to admit it.

Ok, yeah: I just made that statistic up.

Baseball is like golf and fishing -- if you're a fan of it (i.e., in baseball, you get off on the stats), there are things to interest when watching, but if not, it's like watching molasses slide down an exterior brick wall on a cold winter day. "Ooooh, boy, look at THAT runnel move! Give it three, four, maybe five hours it might be down to the ground!!"

To me, there are waaay too many things to do in the universe in an all too short life that would be a better expenditure of 3+ hours... even if the goal is only escape. Video Games, Movies, Good TV (no, not an oxymoron, it does exist).
