Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Today is he anniversary of the start of the Diet of Worms. This was actually a formal deliberative body in Worms, Germany assembled in 1521 to discuss Martin Luther. To most people unfamiliar with history or steeped in religious theology Diet of Worms sounds more like the title of a Stephen King short story... Cool - the New York filming locations of The Godfather - then and now... With the Yankees farm system so barren and having already broken the $189 million luxury tax threshold - you have to wonder if they will be a dumping ground for bad contracts come the July trading deadline... Interesting profile of Jay Glazer... I would like to put together a Justin Beiber cover band fronted by an Elvis impersonator. I would call the band Generic Ebola... Happy 30th birthday to Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski. Maybe the best complement is the fact that around New England nobody ever talks about missing Adam Vinatieri...
