Briefly. (A little late today due to technical difficulties) Quickie today

I saw a bumper sticker yesterday that read “I’m a veterinarian, therefore I can drive like an animal.” Suddenly I realized how many proctologists are on the roads…

Trivia #1: Who was the youngest host of Saturday Night Live? – Miley Cyprus, Drew Barrymore, Macaulay Culkin, Justin Bieber
Trivia #2: Who has more regular season wins with the Red Sox – Terry Francona or Alex Cora?

\Won’t it be great to see the Red Sox eliminate the Yankees this weekend?

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: Red Balloon, a new job board offering postings from companies promising their employees will be “free to work” without the fear of losing their jobs due to medical dictates or political drama.

EZPass is probably the greatest automobile-related invention since the cup holder, but especially the tolls where you can cruise through at any speed!

I love the Rolling Stones but sometimes they contradict themselves. For example, first it’s “Time Is On My Side” and then it’s “Time Waits For No One” (and it won’t wait for me.)

Good news?? There is a report out there that a poison ivy vaccine is making progress.

So a catcher, while tagging a runner out at the plate, loses his card from his wristband that had all the strategy to the opponent’s batters out. The guy on deck picks up the card and goes to his bench. Fair or dirty move? This happened this past week during a Rays/Jays game. I say fair! You and your teammates should already know how to get yourselves out. Part of the game.

Crickets suck (the noise). Someday I hope this is my biggest problem.

Sign of the week: On a sign outside of Pica’s Pub & Grille in Methuen, MA – “Family Owned – Shut up… no, you shut up”

Quote for the week: “Wow. Another night with these shitty uniforms. WTF!” – Scott Zolak, on Twitter, regarding the Red Sox “LeBron” uniforms.

A truck loaded with thousands of copies of Roget’s Thesaurus crashed the other day losing its entire load. Witnesses were stunned, startled, aghast, taken aback, stupefied, confused, shocked, rattled, paralyzed, dazed, bewildered, mixed up, surprised, awed, dumbfounded, nonplussed, flabbergasted, astounded, amazed, confounded, astonished, overwhelmed, horrified, numbed, speechless and perplexed.

Trivia #1 answer: Who was the youngest host of Saturday Night Live? – Miley Cyprus, Drew Barrymore, Macaulay Culkin, Justin Bieber – Drew Barrymore (7 in 1982)
Trivia #2: Who has more regular season wins with the Red Sox – Terry Francona or Alex Cora? – Cora (280 and counting), Terry Francona (279)

Be careful out there. (It’s a jungle!)

So I was called out last week because I mentioned Todd Rundgren and Warren Zevon and then followed up with Billy Squire. OK, here you go.

“Hello it’s me
I’ve thought about us for a long, long time
Maybe I think too much but something’s wrong
There’s something here that doesn’t last too long
Maybe I shouldn’t think of you as mine”

– Todd Rundgren
