America Leads Monday Ramblin’s…

I could be wrong in my calculations, but I think the Royals equaled their season total for runs in the past 3 games. Which was expected, because I’d want exactly NO ONE from their line-up. KC is where average bats go to die; but the Cardinals bent over and let them insert right in to the tookus. Hopefully if you’re one of the several thousand that made the drive across Missouri, Jay Nixon will enact some sort of a tax break for your wasted time…

American’s don’t give 2 shakes about soccer. Never will. BUT we are in love with ourselves. So when the rest of the world is markedly better than us in something we don’t like it. When that thing they’re better than us at happens to hold the most high-profile event in the world- we loath it. So it doesn’t surprise me that America rallied behind the Yanks this World Cup. We had some exciting matches to build hope and the two biggest games happened to be played on Saturday afternoons where we had nothing better to do than drink and be jingoistic. We desperately were hoping against hope this would be the year that the American’s would ruin other countries morale and take our mantle as, one again, the best at everything. Then the US side shit the bed against Ghana. Again. And we’re all back to not caring. But don’t get it twisted- we never did really care about soccer. We just can’t help rallying behind America…

Everyone has a bad start- but now is not the time for Jamie Garcia to hit the wall…

Movie Snot: She’s Out Of Your League- starring that one fidgety guy and a hot chick. Some mildly funny lines. A pretty shaky premise on how the two got together. (As an iPhone owner, I would do just about anything to get my lost phone back. But enter a committed relationship with someone 5 points lower than me on the hot scale? I’m not dating a -2 for the fucking thing.) No female nudity, but some male ass shots. I thought the original GF that sent the kid into a tailspin was a bit too hot for the roll she needed to play. Fun to play along with, but at the end of the day, this shit doesn’t happen. Plus, I’m pretty sure that since you know what, it’s hard to get a pilot’s license to fly solo in like 3 weeks. C+ (one nude scene could have made this a B-, several could have made it a solid B)

You know TLR has been out of the AL for a long time when he can pencil in Aaron Miles as the DH with a straight face and then defend his action in the post-game presser. Who said you can’t change?

In ESPN’s ‘Old Faces, New Places’ NFL series, it was revealed that LaDanian Tomlinson has a brand new Jets tattoo with the years 2010- (blank) now on his leg. A) Have you ever been more excited about a TV show than this season’s Hard Knocks on HBO? This one has the potential to be spectacular. B) If you were thinking of taking a late round chance on LT, doesn’t this ruin that idea? What are the chances of this ending badly for everyone? 100%? 110%…

Don’t look now, but David Freese and Yadier Molina have fallen off a cliff. Freese is more worrisome than Molina, since he’s in a position that needs to produce and doesn’t have a track record in the majors. His swing looks more scared than a underage prostitute at a Giant’s game. Molina hasn’t had a hit since April it seems like, but I think we’re all still pretty confident that he’ll pull something out of his ass before the end of the season…

It’s not too late. If you haven’t been watching The Bachelorette this season on ABC, start tonight…
