Favre Out

The verdict is in. Last year's New York Jets starting quarterback Chad Pennington leads an average Miami Dolphins team to an AFC East championship while aged veteran Brett Favre leads a very talented Jets team to the golf course. Please, Brett, stay retired this time.

(Stupid) Man vs. Machine

-------------------------- Massage-O-Matic 5000?-------------------------

Here's a story about how three people were killed by a Japanese foot massager. I enjoy stories like this because they are about people being killed in ways I am unlikely to die, which in my mind, raises the average lifespan among people like me who do not put themselves in ridiculous fatal situations. (Although I realize I am tempting fate by saying this...."Tonight at 11...blogger predicts his own unbelievable death!"). Here are other situations that I am happy to hear killed people:

1. Mountain Climbing (especially if the victim chose to climb in a particularly dangerous way, no oxygen, no communication devices, no food, no warm clothes, etc.)

3. Murdered by a Japanese Foot Massager (see above)

Before They Were Stars

You didn't think Kermit the Frog landed that plum Sesame Street job right out of the gate, did you? Here's Kermit when he was just a young actor trying to make it big, as a pitchmuppet for Garry's Sausage.

Is There a Secret Gay Basketball League?

Not that there's anything wrong with it, but I think the new American Basketball Association, founded in 2000 and currently consisting of nearly 40 teams playing all over the world, is a closet gay baskteball league. Don't believe me? Let's look at some of the teams in this league:

The Youngstown Swish
The Charlotte Crossovers
The Alaska Dream
The Houston Takers
The South Texas Showboats
The Georgia GWizzlies
The Bahama All-Pro Show

And an honorable mention has to go to the Butte Bandits of the All American Professional Basketball League.

I think it's great that there is a gay professional sports league. As long as none of the players say they are "married to the game," they just might do all right.
