-I need to come up with a better name for my "Random Thoughts" blogs. It even gets boring to me, writing the same blog name over and over again.
-How did "Dan Shaugnessy" get that job writing for the Globe? Actually, how did he get considered? I don’t have to listen to him that often, only on visits back to my "real" home, New Hampshire. But I see him on Jim Rome on occasion, and have come across a few of his articles while browsing Buster Olney’s thoughts. From what I see, he is not very good. Bill Simmons is a much better writer, even though both of them display bias. But they are asked to show that side of their writing. If Simmons did not show any bias then his writing would probably suffer because it would not have ths same passion. This does not apply to every writer, but it is how I view Simmons. Neither of them are on "Baseball Tonight," trying for an objective opinion like Olney and Kruk "try" to do. If Shaugnessy ever made an appearence on "Baseball Tonight," then I would discontinue my viewing of their programming. And the thing is that being a Red Sox fan I can actually tolerate him slightly. I can only imagine how much Yankee fans dislike him.
-ESPN HD is definitely better than the regular ESPN, as I am finding out this morning. If only there was a way of having "MLB Extra Innings" viewed in HD as well. I know that DirecTV has two MLB games in high definition on a daily basis. Couldn’t "Extra Innings" incorporate this feature also? I mean what I care about is watching the games. That is most important. I am not complaining. But I see digital cable’s satellite rival being a step ahead. So I wonder why I cannot watch the Red Sox in HD on occasion, outside of ESPN.
-Was watching "Team America" last night on Comedy Central, the uncut version. And even though I did not find the movie to be quite as funny as others did, there is one line that is great. And not when Matt Damon says, "Matt Damon," which is funny as well. It is when the main character says, "Alec Baldwin. He is my hero. The single greatest actor of all time" That line was absolutely hilarious!
