History Of The World, Part One

Back At The Mac
Perfection two weeks running? Nope, although Meet The Hashers missed by only two questions; one being a multiple choice about Chasing Amy (Ben Affleck’s and Matt Damon’s participation), and the other being a question in which I said the correct answer bought no one else bought into. First place was ours again, however. Remember kids, it’s not how you play the game, it’s whether you win or lose.

Patriot’s Day + 1
Yesterday was Patriot’s Day (which coincided with Albert Einstein’s birthday — how did I miss that?). Not being of Boston decent nor a Boston resident, it’s not high on my holiday chart.

That being said, Patriot’s Day brings two things to us every year

  • an early Boston Red Sox home game
  • the running of the Boston Marathon

Watching the ending of the marathon on tv this year had a little extra coolness, since I actually recognized some of the areas through which they ran. Kinda cool. History was also made as Catherine Ndereba became the first woman to win four Boston Marathons. Props!

Man Of Yellow Makes Announcement In Town Known For Green
It was a bit surreal to see a news conference from Augusta in which Lance Armstrong confirmed one of the worst kept secrets in the history of cycling. This year’s Tour de France will be the last for Lance. If you are holding stock in the popularity of cycling in America, now is the time to sell.

This announcement may mean that this week’s Tour de Georgia will be last race on American soil that Lance rides as a professional! I’ll be tuned to the Weather Channel all week in hopes that Friday is a sunny day in the mountains. If so, be forewarned that I’ll have contracted a sickness that can only be cured by riding a bike up a mountain to watch America’s Greatest Cyclist peform his magic.

The Dead Pope Causes Me To Enter Confessional
With all of the jokes about the conclave to elect a new pope being compared to Fight Club, I’ve got a confession to make… I’ve never seen Fight Club. My friend Glenn saw it on Friday, which surprised me to no end since he is the viewer of all movies, I would have assumed that he had seen it. I guess that makes me the last person over the age of twenty-one to see it. Netflix, could you give me another free “trial” membership?

Newly Released
Without a doubt I have to recommend The Flaming Lips release of “Latenight Tales” as today’s CD Release Of The Day. Ultra cool, too hip for even my cd collection The Flaming Lips are the “One Hit Wonder Band” with more than one hit. Mike, I know that this is soon to hit your collection, so if you can provide me with a thumb’s up/down, I sure would appreciate it.

    You should just join Netflix. It’s
    da bomb.

    And you should have let me hit you at trivia last night as promised.

    I was a member once but never seemed to find time to watch.

    I forgot to let you punch me. Next time, I promise. 🙂

    Ooooh, I just noticed that there is no website of the day today. My bad. Need to fix that…

    You didn’t list Current Mood either. You could go with “Relieved” as you are not the last person over 21 to have seen Fight Club. Despite having all the movie channels your employer offers, I’ve yet to manage to catch that one… or maybe I did, but it was all just a dream.

    Take Friday off if you must, but it won’t be all that without SNOW. Wimpy pros…

    DAMMIT! Apparently my current mood was “absent minded” this morning.
