Cleaning Out The House

Random observations from an over-examined life....

1. My comments widget works but isn't working correctly; there are actually comments on most of my recent posts, even if it appears as if there are not. I have no idea why this is happening.

2. If our Monday night collective is the Boston Red Sox of pub trivia, tonight was one of those seasons when Butch Hobson was the manager and Scott Cooper the team's all-star representative. And of course, the guy I think we needed the most was a no-show.

3. Is there a more powerful force out there than a contract dispute?
* Roger Clemens got his slacker butt in gear after Dan Duquette made the claim that he was in the twilight of his career. Maybe if he didn't end up in pinstripes.... oh, yeah, I alreadt covered this, didn't I?
* Bruce Springsteen recorded "Darkness On The Edge Of Town" while fighting the people in the industry who were swindling him out of his money. He sings and plays like a man posessed, and never quite made another album like it. Remember, boys and girls...never sign an agreement on the hood of a car.

4. Still have yet to see Terminator 3. I may end up going to a theater to see it, but the precedents for sequels this far removed from the original are not good. "2010." "Godfather III." The "Star Wars" prequels. "The Evening Star." "The Two Jakes." (Those last two are entirely unasked-for sequels to "Terms of Endearment" and "Chinatown," respectively.)
