Nurse the Hate: Hate Surprises

It's always interesting to see what people pretend to be surprised about. For example, this week Texas Rangers owner Tom Hicks said he "thinks" Juan Gonzalez "may" have been on steroids. The only reason he decided to mention it now, is that he paid out 35 million bucks to him while on the DL for one of his 700 mysterious muscle pulls, and that left him a little sore. He wasn't complaining when Juan had 2 MVP seasons, only when he came up lame. Way to go Tom! Way to really stick your neck out there on that one. It is noteworthy to mention that Texas (besides being run by our current president during the Go-Go days of steroids) featured such noted steroid users as Rafael Palmero, Sammy Sosa, Jose Canseco, David Seguii and Juan Gonzalez. Yet somehow this Captain of Industry that built a massive fortune in business by paying attention to detail didn't notice that his players were putting on 40 pounds of muscle during the season? Good God Tom! What a surprise!

Random Notes: It's good to see Sean Kemp back in the news. For those of you that didn't get swept up in the missing Canton woman media circus, here's the Kemp tie in. Kemp was in the woman's apartment that the boyfriend broke into when he was almost dismissed from the force. One of Kemp's 12 (known) children are with the cop's ex girlfriend. It's good to know that "The Rainman" put something in the hole in his time here as a Cav...I had one of the best tasting beers OF ALL TIME last weekend. I mowed the lawn in 90 degree heat, and popped open a Lagunitas Maximum IPA afterwards. Without question, one of the most thirst quenching experiences ever. That was one of the rare times that a beer tastes just as good as it does on a tv commercial...Roy Halladay is back. The ATM is open again...I love the over on KC this year. Vegas has it a 7.5. Kansas City has one of the biggest home field advantages in the NFL. Let's assume they go 5-3. They will win at Oakland on the road. Now you just have to go 2-5 for the rest of the road schedule. That's a nice little wager there.

Did you happen to drop a six of various LAH-GOO-KNEE-TUSS brews over at world headquaters on Miles road? I think I had an overwhelming share of the beers one evening while the rest of the office drank the swill brewed by Coors and company.

Yes I did. Let those losers drink the swill while you quietly live the good life. I was at Jacob's Field last week in the 90 degree heat. Some woman asked the beer vendor if he had any water. He said, "Drink a Coors Light lady. It's the same thing!".
