Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

The Washington Nationals are now a .500 team while the Red Sox are not. Down is up and up is down. The world ceases to make sense... I'm a fan of Penn & Teller. If they were to publish a manifesto and found a political party - I'd vote for that party... It is ironic that prior to the series - commentators were picking the Celtics over the Heat because the Boston Big 3 had proven they could "close" games while the Heat were choke artists. The Celtics could easily have won games 4 and 5 if they could just close out when they were ahead. The injury to Rondo hurt a lot. This time of year is all about being healthy (and getting Stern to have refs call the game your way)... Is Linda Cohn still dating Mr. Met?... Mysterious Blackjack Savant Single-Handedly Busts Tropicana Casino... Many people still argue that John Travolta's best role was as the boy in the bubble... The things you learn on the Internet (via Mental Floss): "The milliHelen is the quantity of beauty required to launch just one ship"... Kentucky Derby jockey found dead at Churchill Downs. I can't read something like that without thinking it would be a great opening for a Dick Francis novel... I'm bugged by people who write about "rooting" for one side or the other in NFL lockout. A pox on both their houses if a deal isn't reached...
