Seinfeld’s DOA New Show Leads Monday Ramblin’s…

Oh, Jerry. You were the co-creator of what may be the best :30 minute comedy of all-time. Your mysterious absence from anything but stand-up only heightened our expectations of what was coming next. Bee Movie? Ok, everyone deserves a mulligan. Marriage Ref? Hmmm. Larry David’s legacy thanks you, sir

Brilliant signing this weekend to get Felipe Lopez for 1.2M plus another 1M of easily achieved incentives. I was under the impression he was like 35 (which he might be), but he’s listed @ 29. He’s boys with Albert. He can play every position on the field. And he’s the perfect utility guy that TLR can get into the starting line-up 120 times a year. Barring injury, I think this one might give Johnny Mo his first MLB Executive of the Year award…

The Yanks probably shouldn’t have been in that Gold Medal game yesterday to close out the Vancouver Olympics. But that doesn’t make Sidney Crosby’s face any less punchable. Not related to the game in anyway, but did you know that there is an actual debate in Pittsburgh centering on the thesis that Crosby would be a better captain for the Penguins if he moved out of Mario Lemieux’s house. No, seriously…

Blake Hawksworth, the Cardinals reliever, had a grandpa that was pretty much responsible (his words) for bringing the Olympics to Vancouver. He details the process in his blog over at the Globe-Democrat

Movie Snot: The Informant!  A movie about price fixing on ag commodities in international markets. There are 0 titty shots. And that shouldn’t surprise you. Though about 40 minutes of this, I was thoroughly convinced that any critics that thought this was a good movie were on crack. The back half when things start to get untangled, though, is much better. I am confused as to why the Matt Damon character can come out of jail and immediately get a job as another CEO. He must have been shrewder than he was portrayed. Also, the early 90’s were a rough time for clothes…

I used a $25 gift card at Kohl’s Online for a high-powered nose hair trimmer. I feel like I’m getting too much air now. Very odd sensation…

First Spring Training game is Thursday for the Cardinals. Via Jason Stark (ESPN), yesterday was the last Sunday a baseball game will not be played until November 7…

Maybe someone can enlighten me, but I thought South Korea was a warm weather locale? How in the hell do they have enough athletes to win 14 medals at an Olympics? That’s 3 more than China. Or 13 more than England! I’m pretty sure whatever training camp they have there is not something you or I could survive for more than 3 hours…

If you have 7 minutes to burn, check out the worst sportscast you’ve ever seen. How dude manages to keep his composure the entire time is beyond me. You’d think he’d have to laugh at some point…
