Nurse the Hate: Championship Game

Well, "The Iceman" Artie Lange went 0-2, but unfortunately the Stern show is off on vacation, so we won't get to hear his take on the game. That's a damn shame...The good news is that I was all over Florida on Saturday, and I'm going to follow this thing through tonight giving the four and a half. Florida has the swagger and multi dimensions of a champion team, and though OSU really sacked up Saturday I think the Gators are just too much. I saw that Dec OSU/Fla game, and I rememebr it well. Florida's got too much in too many places. They killed UCLA, and that's a damn good team. I think Oden gets in foul trouble again, and then the bigs take it to the Buckeyes on the boards. It seems too easy, but nationally it's about 60/40 on Fla.

Random Note: Boy did Jose Contreras look bad against the Indians today. Also of note is how old and rickety the Yankees looked against the pitching poor Devil Rays. The way to beat the Yankees is to run like crazy on them, and hope like hell your starter can pitch 6 and change. However, that line up is like a beer league softball team good for 7 runs a game. You're gonna have to win 8-7 games if you have no pitching. If you do have pitching, you'll make them look like the Tigers did in the AL Playoffs last year....Rolling Stone magazine has a real cutting edge cover story this week. Pink Floyd: An Inside Look. Wow...That would have been relevant 21 years ago. Way to go Rolling Stone! By the way, all of their reviews are for sale. Ever notice that whenever the new shitty Bruce Springsteen/David Bowie/Mick Jagger record comes out they are all 4 star masterpieces? Then, coincidentally, you'll see full page ads for the releases in the next 3 issues. Maybe I'm being cynical...Maybe that Bruce Springsteen "The Ghost of Tom Joad" really was a 4 star masterwork and not a whiny collection of wandering new Dust Bowl musings without any tuneful hooks whatsoever. My mistake.

You're right on about the Rolling Stone cover. It was absolutely bizarre. Pink Floyd? Now? Why? And that from a magazine that will have Hannah Montana from the Disney Channel on the cover next month if she'll wear a half-shirt.

...and every issue you can count on whatever publicist is paying up to put his/her "buzz band" in the photo spead in the first few pages. Hey look! There's Panic At The Disco partying with Lindsey Lohan at some overblown club in Manhatten! There they are next week with Elton John at some art opening! Hooray! At least there's not a photo of The Strokes every week anymore...I'm tired of seeing those fuckers at fabulous parties with skinny little super models. Gimme a picture of This Moment in Black History eating flapjacks at a Denny's in Hamburg NY on their way home from some hellhole punk rock club they played the night before. That's more rock n roll than those prefabricated "photo ops". For God's sake! Somebody get Bim a publicist!
