World Cup : Olympics

It's World Cup time, again. And I could make all kinds of snarky comments about the game of soccer. But really, it's just not worth it. It would be like being rude about beating a little kid in a race. So, to World Cup enthusiasts, let me just say this:

Ooh! That's very nice. You're doing a really good job there. Keep up the good work and maybe you could start having a championship every two years!

Fenway needs a facelift

Okay, finally up to the penultimate game from the baseball tour. The Red Sox benefited for a long time from everyone of sense and good taste despising the Yankees. But, what they failed to realise is, no one outside of New England really likes the Red Sox either. They were just a convenient stick with which to beat the hated Yankees. It's not like the rest of country was waiting with bated breath to see Sox ascendant.
Fenway used to be a nice park. It has a lot of history still going for it, but frankly, the place is a dump. It needs to be completely renovated or replaced. Anyway, despite that, I was glad to be there and see a piece of history.

Bonus Stripped

I'm a big fan of the Stripped documentary. (About comic strips! Get your mind right.) You ought to buy a copy yourself, it's well worth watching. But if you really like comics, then you can also splurge for the extra features, the best of which are the extended interviews with a lot of the cartoonists. It's fascinating to hear all the different perspectives about comics, where it's going, and what it's all about. Check out the trailer here.
