Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.
Not being critical of Jason Varitek but after watching his retirement announcement I am saying that I doubt if a career in broadcasting awaits him... If the average American guy spent as much time taking online lessons at Khan Academy as they do watching porn online - the country would be peopled with the equivalent of millions of Ph D level men... I am disappointed that AJ Burnett's fractured orbital bone was caused by a failed bunt attempt and not someone smushing a pie in his face... Interesting article on George Clooney. Read it if just for a great Harry Hamlin anecdote... Am I the only one who sometimes confused Carl Sagan and Paul Tsongas? They did sort of look alike... I always considered Johnny Damon to be a clean player. I wonder what he thinks about Ryan Braun getting his 50-game suspension rescinded while Damon is unable to find any work?... If I was a Division 1 college AD with a struggling baseball program - I'd think about making Jason Varitek an offer to be new head baseball coach.
