I actually shouted, "Take that, California Family Code Section 7540!" - I Just Need the Weight of Words

10:02 pm - I actually shouted, "Take that, California Family Code Section 7540!"

I just made a breakthrough in my law class assignment - a law journal article about the very topic I need to write about.  I was jumping around my room, shouting "Fucking YOU-REE-KA!" like I was in Black Hawk Down.  I feel good.  That made my entire day in the library worth it.

In a less exciting vein, the only thing I can think of worse than a Red Sox series win (sorry bobdapoet, you root for the devil's team) is if the ALCS goes seven games, because that is more Tim McCarver than anybody should have to deal with.  It's not just that he's condescending and boring and annoying and treats every game as if he's convinced that nobody who's watching has ever seen a game before, but often, he's wrong.  Seriously, check it out.  So some guy with a guitar (along with pretty much everyone I've ever talked to) feels the same way, but he had the courage to write a song about it.  (Thanks, Deadspin!)



If you like that, also check out his hit "Osama Bin Laden, You Ruined My Birthday."  Pretty funny for being half-awake

Current Music: I hate you, Tim McCarver

Tim a grade A douche bag. Joe is O.K., but Tim just needs to go away. While other the blogger apparently hates Morgan, Jon Miller and Joe Morgan are eons better then the Fox brodcast.

Joe Morgan is awful too. Just pathetic. He just makes statements that are bland and wrong, pumping up the stars shamelessly (he slobbers Gary Sheffield's knob like Sheff is paying him), and ignoring years of statistics and, often, what's going on in front of him.

Although I admire Jon Miller for pronouncing Latino players' names correctly, I think he's smug too. I just want to punch him.

If I had my way, Dan Shulman and Steve Stone (pretty much by default) would announce each game. That is, if Harry Doyle is unavailable.

I find Steve about as exciting as lightly toasted white bread.

I like Jon Miller's voice. Joe gets a bit crotchety to me, but I think he works well with Joe. By his own admission he is not a stat guy.

BB has been good on TBS, but Chip Caray I find bland as all hell. Tony has been alright, but I don't like more then two guys in the booth.

the ultimate tandem would be joe buck (abnormally large head...possibly the largest in broadcasting history) announcing with joe morgan (abnormally larger head). with these two in one booth OSHA would have to inspect the structure to make sure it could withstand such mass and in morgan's case, such vapidness. throw harry carry's glasses in and you'd have a definate building collapse. and as dick endberg would say, "oh my."

As my buddy said the other day, "I think Tim McCarver might really be retarded."
