No Such Nonsense

A little of this, that and... what was I talking about again? It's TV, sports, pop culture and politics - all the stuff that really matters in life.

Bits and Bobs

It's been too long. Again. Sorry. Somehow my job keeps getting in the way of plentiful blogging. Excuses, excuses. Anyway, here's some of what's been going on:

Jose Canseco is Vindicated.
The new book is out from the guy who helped blow the lid off steroids in baseball. In Juiced, he pointed fingers and named names, all while continuing to be an apologist for those who used during the steroid era. Derided at the time, the book has gained a whole heck of lot of credibility since the Mitchell Report. Hence the name of the new book. Not much new inside though - except this: Canseco really, really hates Alex Rodriguez. Because, he says, the young A-Rod kept hitting on Canseco's wife. Gotta love it. Oh, and for those of you waiting for the day that that dirty Barry Bonds record would be obliterated by someone younger and cleaner? Well, A-Rod will likely break that record, but Canseco says he's totally juiced too. Ah, baseball.

Will the West boycott the Olympics?
Never gonna happen, my friend. Because, as the 1980 and 1984 Olympics proved, boycotts only hurt the athletes. And sometimes boycotts lead to Canadian winning medals in swimming because there are no East Germans in the mix, but that's beside the point. We may see a boycott of the opening ceremonies, though - which seems like a pretty sound move to me. Out of all this, in the end, I must give props to the Tibetan protesters. They've used China's moment in the Olympic sun to bring attention to their plight in a startlingly effective way.

What happened to Priscilla Presley's face?
Watched Dancing With the Stars last night. It may as well have been an infomercial on the scary side of plastic surgery. Steve Guttenberg loved like this was the greatest time of his life, though. How cute is that. Me, I'm cheering for Jason Taylor. I love when the football player foxtrot.

That's all for now.

    While you were away it was revealed Priscilla and a number of other starlets were scammed by a fake botox doctor who was "was injecting industrial, low-grade silicone similar to what's used to lubricate auto parts in Argentina into the faces of these women"
