If you're looking to kill some time, you've come to the right place...

First things first. What is up with Blogger? It seems like it has been been excruciatingly slow lately. It is just me? Maybe I am too impatient...

My wife and I have been watching the Curb Your Enthusiasm DVDs (which is a hilarious show by the way) and I commented to her that I could see myself getting into some of the same types of trouble that Larry David always seems to wind up in on the show. She then informed me that I do have a few of Larry David's traits.


Hmmmmm. I was not quite sure what to make of that, but I figured it can't be good. Seeing that I was bothered by this she reassuringly told me I was not a complete jackass like Larry David but I do suffer from an occasional lack of social etiquette and am generally completely oblivious to what is going on around me in social situations.

Instead of being bothered by all this, I have decided to take the ball and run with it. Now when I get into a situation and I'm not sure how I'm doing I'll ask her, "Am I being all, 'Larry David' right now"?

If the answer is no, I know I'm doing good. If it's yes or 'just a little', I just smile and she'll say, "I don't think it's necessarily a good thing that you have taken Larry David as a role model."

Heh, heh, heh...

Switching gears here, sorry there's been more "Life in General" and less "Pats and Sox" lately, but what is there to talk about? I'm not one to dissect the goings on at Spring Training, other than to say, 'Hooray! Its Spring Training' and I generally ignore all the Steroids/A-Rod/Ring Ceremony nonsense. That does not leave much to talk about sports-wise.

It is fun to see all the guys on the Sox working out and getting ready for the season. It definitely puts me in a good mood. I am looking forward to some semi-real baseball next week when they start playing some Grapefruit Leauge games. It will be nice to see the guys back in action and to check out the new guys on the staff. I'm very interested in Wade Miller. I have a good feeling about that guy. I think he is going to be a steal.

NESN has been re-playing the 2004 ALCS and World Series. Although I have not watched all of them, I have caught some (or at least parts) of the re-run games. They are fun to watch. Check out the October archives if you're interested in seeing the face of insanity and what I was going through during the '04 Post Season. When I re-read some of those old posts I think, 'That was a whole different world back then', Pre-Red Sox World Series Champions 2004.

The Pats made Adam V. a 'franchise player'. No surprises there. I don't see it as a big deal. They did the same thing with him the last time around just so they had more time to work out the deal. I don't see Adam going anywhere.

As expected it's looking like Drew Bledsoe will be re-unitied with Parcells in Dallas. I find it somewhat surprising that Drew would want to play for Parcells again, considering how relieved Bledsoe seemed be when Parcells fucked over left The Pats. It will probably be good for Drew to have Parcells yelling at him again. Maybe he can resurrect his career and finish it up on a good note.

The Winston, I mean, Nextel Cup heads to California this weekend.

How about that, there was a little bit of sports to write about after all!
