Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Am I the only one bothered by ESPN and others always using the term "sexual assault" when discussing Jameis Winston? He is accused of "rape". Rape! Use the frigging word... Does drinking beer make you more creative? Not sure. Does the existence of beer prove there is a God who loves us? Absolutely... Not sure if this is just a Massachusetts expression but "book it" means run away. As in "the cops came and we all booked it"... You can get away with wearing a hat like this when you are Tom Brady... This blows my mind - Michael J. Fox's middle name is Andrew... Welcome to Zombo.com. You can do anything at Zombo.com. Always puts a smile on my face... I wish the AP issued a Stylebook ruling that said any time Alex Rodriguez's name is mentioned in print - the word "churlish" must precede his name... If Justin Beiber made a Christmas CD - I would give it as a gift to people I hate... It is amusing to see how the White House has stopped using the term "Obamacare" and now is calling it the Affordable Care Act once again.

  1. Canadians know that Michael J. Fox didn't like that people were referring to him as "Michael's A Fox" - so he got rid of the A for a J.

  2. Ha - that's great and I think I've actually heard that before. For some reason I was imagining it was because there already a Michael A Fox in the actor's guild. Thanks Keith

  3. On a related note - I have always wished the Simpson's episode when Homer tries to find out the meaning behind the "J" in Homer J Simpson had led to him finding out it was actually "Andrew"

  4. On a related note - JD Drew's name is actually David Jonathan. WTF?
