Big Weekend Sweep Leads Monday Ramblin’s…

Brilliant win for the Cardinals Sunday afternoon. Brilliant series for the Cardinals all weekend long. The Phillies are coming to STL on the ropes after getting worked by the Scrubs. Roy Halladay got lit up on Sunday Night Baseball. The vultures are circling in PA. If the birds can take 6 of 7 against 2 teams that are at least competing for a division title in 2010, then that’s the type of week that can create physical and mental separation between themselves and the Reds…

The Mel Gibson tapes were made for satellite radio and Howard Stern. You may be one of the cheapasses that wonders why some of us pay for radio. Mel Gibson is the answer.  At least twice last week I was crying laughing. Possibly some of the funniest radio of all time…

In the annals of Cardinal baseball history, Dave Ducan’s epitaph won’t mention his ressureaction of Jeff Suppan’s rotting corpse in 2010 as a seminal achievement in his career. Perhaps is should. Sup was an absolute train wreck in Milwalkee and getting mop-up duty out of their bullpen. Now a month after coming back to the Cardinals, he’s able to give 6 innings of 1 run ball? This is borderline miracle-ish…

The Gillette Fusion ProGlide commercials don’t lie. That’s the Ferrari of disposable razors. For the first time since puberty, shaving was actually mildly fun. The damn thing zips around on your face with no tug, no pull and takes about a quarter inch of your skin off as a bonus. It’s the most expensive razor on the market as well. If and when they start writing loans for these, I’d consider one at the right interest rate…

Easy Allen Craig. We’ve already got people wanting to trade Ludwick to get Jon Jay some playing time. We don’t have room for another guy that everyone will want in the OF everyday…

Lady Gaga is without a doubt, the most influential performer in the United States today. St. Louis is about as progressive as your grandmother’s wardrobe. On Saturday night 100’s of people all over downtown were dressed in ridiculous outfits, not giving a shit, having the time of their lives after Gaga played the Kiel Center. Don’t think any other show could have come to this town and had the same effect. Good for her…

Why would you rest Albert Pujols on a Sunday when people are in from out of town to see the Cardinals, you ask? TV. That’s why. Can’t rest him tonight or Sunday because ESPN is televising those games….

This is the new paradigm of entertainment. 1) Somebody finds old outtakes from an angry Winnebego dealer. 2) Those clips get placed on YouTube and become viral, racking up millions of hits. 3) Filmmaker gets curious and decides to find this guy. 4) Winnebego guy has a much more interesting back story than anticipated and the filmmaker makes a movie. 5) Movie becomes critical darling, racking up awards all over the world at film festivals. 6) St. Louis, the non-progressive city mentioned above, doesn’t have a theater that will show it. 7) We settle for watching the trailer again.
