Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

This is an example of why David Ortiz is so well liked. According to Rob Bradford, today Ortiz went out of his way to shake the hands of every member of the Boston College baseball team who had gathered around the cage to watch Big Papi hit batting practice... I have to admit that I have never considered Jackie Kennedy to be attractive. Just never saw the big deal... Supposedly Jacquizz Rodgers measured UNDER 5-foot-6 at the NFL Combine. Just as an aside - Maurice Jone-Drew is listed at 5'8"... They couldn't remake the TV show The Six Million Dollar Man today because NASA no longer employs astronauts... Igor, Come!... Jerry Remy was asking for nicknames for Jacoby Ellsbury and I figured why not call Ellsbury "The Beav" since he's best position player ever from Oregon State and he's also a chick magnet. I think it's a perfect nickname... Bob Ryan says Jeff Green may be "the young Antonio McDyess; something like that" - that's high praise indeed... Attitudes Towards Poverty: Differing definitions in the U.S. and Europe. I think these attitudes speak volumes about the different outlooks. I do not want us to become more like Europe... Just saying but many of people complaining about Kendrick Perkins being traded are same ones who last year wanted Celtics to trade Ray Allen at the trade deadline... Fear of Clowns?...
