I saw this sign on Broad Street on the way to the ballpark on Friday. I wondered how much the boots cost after they were gone. I would think that the price goes up drastically. I think about crap like that.
Baseball diamonds aren't diamonds - they're 90-foot squares. I don't know why they're called diaminds. I guess because it sits on one corner, unless you're sitting along the baselines, in which case you could clearly see it is a square. Diamonds don't have 90-degree angles. "Baseball square" sounds strange.
At the Alice Cooper concert on Saturday night, I wore one of my red Phillies t-shirts because, well ... anyway, I started to notice that I was one of about 3 people wearing something brightly colored. The rest of them were in some sort of grey, black or muted color that made me think that there were a lot of wanna-be goths in the crowd. I'm a trailblazer.
I walked around the condo in alternating states of panic and serenity all day Sunday when I looked at a clock and then realized that it was an hour fast. The only ones I could count on were the cable box and the computer. I'm lazy with the clock-change bit. I was confused most of the day. Mostly, what it means is that it will be dark when I get home from work.
Lots of great ad campaigns have come and gone, yet we're still seeing those Geico cavemen. Don't they realize how out of place they are in society? And why are they so angry?
Frogmouth Chris Berman is going to interview Barack Obama and John McCain at half time of Monday night's football game. When I saw that ad, I thought it was a joke because, well ... I just hope he doesn't work in those idiotic nicknames he shouts during the broadcast. Barack "and roll" Obama and John "I'm so old I need a" McCain.
Finally - tomorrow is Election Day. I'm a tiny bit afraid - OK, I'm very afraid. I fear the same sort of nonsense we endured the last 2 elections, with voter fraud, bad machines, long lines and the antiquated Electoral College - don't get me started on that. So, arrive early and if you vote your conscience, there shouldn't be any problems.
Here is a fisheye photo for Kimmy from Friday's Phillies festivities, because I know Kimmy loves the fisheye
