People saying "Mayday"...cause Mo is kicking like Pele'

I hung out on the beach and caught Onset's wick-wick-whack fireworks last night.  It wasn't that bad, but we were fairly far off, and there was a stiff breeze off the water. Whahhhhhh....

They were the left and right of my viewpoint. Onset probably took it with their finale, but the outlaw probably provided a better show over the half hour I was paying attention.

Anywho... click here for some fireworks: Lady Liberty Fireworks

Good news! Little Katelyn from our poll-fixing efforts last month got her Lou Brock/Carlton Fisk clinic, as well as her fatfat check. The ol' ballfield should be looking a lot better soon. Lou doesn't have a high opinion of using gravel on baseball infields, and I can sort of understand that myself.

I'm sort of a seriously parochial sports fan, to the point where I resent being called "Yankee" by a southerner... although not for the reason they want me to resent it. I just hate that team.

Still, this was a fun test. It determines the level of Yankeedom or Rebelese in your speech. Give it a shawt!

France beat Brazil at the World Cup yesterday, thus depriving us of a Portugal/Barzil slobberknocker in the semi-finals. Portugal had earlier eliminated David Beckham and England. The winner of France/Portugal gets the dudes who walk out of Italy/Germany.

People are stoked, although I still feel that the worst guy in the NFL is still better than the best guy in World Cup.
