I've been making the most of the Center Ice package to watch the first few days of the NHL playoffs. Just saw the Bruins beat Montreal in game 1, 4-2. The Habs played them pretty tough, but Boston stepped it up in the third and got a big win. I've been watching bits and pieces of the other games on Versus and the hockey package. I love this time of year.
The Jays are continuing their great start, with a 7-3 record going into tonight. The offense has been unexpectedly on fire and some of the young starters like Ricky Romero and Scott Richmond have done well in addition to the great Roy Halladay. The Sox and Yanks are off to slow starts, but I'm sure they'll pick things up. I hope they don't, but they probably will. Wow, Kevin Millar just hit a grand slam to put the Jays up 9-1 over the Twins. Keeeee-rraazzzy.
Things are going well with the podcast. I've gotten some good feedback on my recent "conversation casts" with Jay Breitling and Eric Convey. Tomorrow night, I'm going to post the first part of the Ric Dube conversation that we recorded last Saturday; it's pretty long, but a lot of fun. Then I'll do the second part next Tuesday, I think.
Pass the pepper:
- Speaking of the NHL playoffs, here's Sports Illustrated's idea of expanded playoff coverage: A photo gallery of NHL players who look like celebrities. Bravo, SI. You're finding new and innovative ways to suck.
- Well, I guess it was inevitable that Octomom would get a reality show. But at least it won't air in the U.S. Oh, and she's trademarking the name "Octomom." Because she doesn't want all those other mothers of octuplets horning in on her territory.
- Ancient conservative douche George Will says the popularity of jeans is leading America to its doom. If everyone would just wear bowties, we'd get this thing turned around in the right direction.
