Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

It is amusing that on HBO's 24/7 NHL series the closed captioning does not transcribe any of the swears. I mean every other word is "f*ck" but are they trying to protect the sensibilities of deaf people?... Who knew? Not only is there a Saratoga Springs NY - there is also a Saratoga Springs Utah! The Utah town was started in 1997. It would be cool to have homes in both towns... Interesting way to look at it - Wisconsin just mustered the 8th largest army in the world... I recently re-read A Christmas Carol and one Charles Dickens simile that make no sense jumped out at me - "like a bad lobster in a dark cellar." What the hell is that supposed to mean?... Speaking of Christmas carols - a very under-rated one is Annie Lennox singing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen...Not my joke but I'll repeat it - do you think Rex Ryan and his wife spent the last two days sniffing the Christmas stockings?... I think Michael Vick talking about voting for himself for MVP will cost him some votes. Tom Brady would never make that kind of faux pas but then again Tom Brady would never torture and kill dogs either... So that's how it is in that marriage... Cliff Lee was just an average pitcher until 2008 but since then Roll Tide...
