Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

I still really want to see an Olympic ski jump event where all the participants have to make their jumps using those flying squirrel suits... US Marine attacks African immigrant and steals his lunch... Roy Oswalt announced he's retiring. It should be noted that he made $97 million in salary in his baseball career. I'm assuming his family won't go hungry... Chad Finn has a good take on how lucky Boston sports fans have been... Every time you hear a sob story about a free agent player like Stephen Drew who was offered a $14.1 million 1-year qualifying offer but has yet to sign with a team the spin of the story will somehow be how the compensation draft pick is hurting the player and a flaw in the system. What is never stressed is the fact that Stephen Drew was offered $14.1 million AND TURNED IT DOWN!... JRR Tolkien as a 24-year old in 1916 during WWI... The Olympics remind me that people flock to watch Ice Dancing but for some reason at all other times people won't flock to the Ice Capades. I think it is because of the word "capades". If they called it Ice Dancing of the Stars people would flock to it. Ice Capades not so much...
