Two days, two new excellent song finds!! Yesterday was Kathleen Edwards, today was Sia’s “The Girl You Lost to Cocaine.” Brilliant stuff. The CD is titled “Some People Have Real Problems.” I’ve only had the chance to listen to the aforementioned song so far. Will let you know when I hear more. For now, though, here’s her performance on Conan O’Brien.
You know, it’s really difficult getting daily e-mails about all of the fun and sun my Mom is enjoying in Cabo San Lucas everyday when the temperature here hasn’t yet risen above -30 all week. Mom, I love you and I’m glad you’re having a great time, but your e-mails are driving me nuts.
Riders’ release of the popular Corey Holmes. And you know what? I’m okay with it. I’m a little shocked. But paying six figures to a guy who rarely had a kickoff/punt return over 20 yards and was a backup running back is a little excessive. It was a pure salary cap move. I imagine Holmes will be back with the Riders – with a reduced salary.
But that’s the least of our problems, team. The Globe and Mail is running a story tonight, confirmed by Kerry Joseph himself, that KJ is unhappy with the lack of interest the Riders have shown in renegotiating his contract. So, he’s scheduled a workout with the New Orleans Saints. The Globe points out that Joseph signing with an NFL team is a longshot at best because of his age and the salary guarnateed him due to his five years played in the league. But I don’t like the situation at all. We can’t have an unhappy QB. Yet, I think KJ should be a little more patient and realize ET has his hands full right now with trying to pin down a new head coach. And it won’t be George Cortez. Damn Stampeders…
Good news all! Rudy Giuliani OFFICIALLY won’t be running the US in 2009! His ‘fall from grace’ as ‘America’s mayor’ has been nothing but spectacular. Thinking he could ‘unveil’ his campaign in Florida, a week before Super Tuesday was an inane strategy. I’m just glad that we won’t have to hear about 9/11, terrorists and how he’s the only one who can save us from the infelds anymore. The Onion’s article about Giuliani running for President of 9/11 is classic reading – the truth in humorous form!
And what about John Edwards dropping out of the Democratic race? Well, I appreciate his message about not leaving the poor in our society behind, but I never found it to be sincere. The only downside to Edwards’ decision to leave the race it that Ralph Nader is thinking about running. Seriously.
All we need now is Ross Perot to come back from political purgatory…
