11-15 Monday Ramblin’s…

Sam Bradford hasn’t brought the intense interest back to the St. Louis Rams like ownership expected. At least not yet.  There was a time where the Rams were on SportsCenter’s ‘A’ block with extended highlights and bonus breakdown analysis from a talking head.  And following a complete bone job in OT against San Francisco, the coverage on national outlets was cursory at best. But amongst fans, the people that were still actually watching the past 3 years, I think that Bradford has changed the culture significantly. We were disappointed in the loss. The past 3 seasons were expected the loss. So even thought the result was the same- the feeling about it most definitely wasn’t. At this moment, I don’t want to admit it is progress. But I suppose it is…

The Cardinals have put the screws to Brendan Ryan, claiming that if they get an opportunity to upgrade the SS position, they’re going to take a long hard look at it. While everyone admits that Ryan is a plus, plus defender, he also didn’t have a single month where his OBP was over .300. Not many position players get to keep their jobs with that low level of offensive contribution…

Movie Snot: “When in Rome”- I refuse to believe that even after spending months of their lives on this project AND being incredibly biased, that someone on this film didn’t take a look at the final print and just hang their head in shame. In fact, I’m not 100% sure what a lobotomy does to a person, but I imagine that even a hole drilled in your dome wouldn’t make this Kristen Bell flick salvageable. Further, any comedic credibility Will Arnett had from Arrested Development was completely and totally negated by his turn as an Italian artisan under some sort of magic spell. Just a brutal waste of 90 minutes. Please do yourself a favor and stay away. F+…

YouTube wins the weekend. I don’t know who spent the time to find nearly 5 minutes of people telling other people that they ‘look like shit’ on the silver screen, but they did. And now it’s here for you to marvel at- LINK HERE

Perhaps you like watching the continuation of the Cubs ‘Winter of Failure’. So I’ll spoil this episode of ‘Yard Wars’ or whatever the hell it’s called and tell you right now that the Cubs yard loses. To the Cardinals yard. I just caught this on the re-play last night and it was glorious…

Whoever invented work was a real jack wagon…

I was listening to the Adam Carolla podcast the other day and he brings up a damn good point about elastic luggage. As in, why don’t we have such a thing? I mean, what’s the worst part of vacation? Trying to fit all your crap back into your bag to get it home. We’re always stuffing and cramming and whatnot. Meanwhile, one awkward do dad we picked up won’t freaking fit. Why not have elastic? It forms to what you want! I thought this was brilliant idea…
