FOX may suck ass when it comes to everything baseball broadcast, but I have to say I enjoyed this past half-inning's installation of the A-Rod is a Douche Show. Because, A-Rod is a douche.

FOX or not, though, I love having baseball on my TV. MLBTV is really handy, but the blackout restrictions make it really hard to keep up with the Red Sox as well as I can keep up with the Tigers, Astros, Yankees (in theory, anyway), or even the A's. I live right smack in Red Sox Nation territory and I know more about what the Tigers have been doing lately. Sheesh. I miss having cable during the baseball season.

But! Speaking of the Red Sox Nation, check out this baby name popularity tracker. Go through the 2004 team roster and plug in some of their names. A lot of them have a nice little spike or a bump at around 2005. It doesn't really work for the names that are popular anyway, like David or Jason, but names like Bronson and Pedro have a noticeable spike at around the time that Red Sox fans would be giving birth after the World Series. Red Sox fans are crazy people.

And while we're on the topic, does anyone have any idea why the name Huston would have been popular from about 1900 to 1920ish? Was there a famous politician or writer or someone by that name in that time? Because it comes almost out of nowhere to spike for about twenty years, and then drops off the charts never to be seen again. At least not until A's fangirls start giving birth.

Ooh, now my TV has Astros on it. This was supposed to be a short post, so I'm gonna go watch them now. Go Astros!

I am going to vomit everywhere. I hate the Orioles. I hate our bullpen. I hate A-Rod. And I hate rain for taking the Tigers and Astros away from me.

Well, shit, Boomer. I'm gonna miss him. How long before a month to six weeks is over?

Also, the Astros game tonight has been postponed. Except that it's rain instead of snow. But on the other hand, the Tigers game is merely delayed with no further explanation on the scoreboard. Oh, no, wait, it's rain. Well . . . at least it's not snow?

Ha, at least the Yankees aren't being precipitated on. They're playing the Angels. Which means *snf* Orlando Cabrera. Man, just the thought of seeing his little picture on GameCast for another team makes me sad.

Edit: And A-Rod got a three-run homer. MOTHERFUCKER. Does this mean I can't make fun of him for being useless anymore? (No.)

Edit again: And then A-Rod got a two-run homer. I don't care, I don't care, I'll still make fun of him . . . *foams at mouth*

On the plus side, the Sox are currently ahead 5-2. Very productive second inning. <3

Edit s'more: And he got a GRAND SLAM. Now GameCast is just making this up to TORMENT ME. The Angels need to remember never to let Bartolo Colon pitch to A-Rod again, because he CAN'T and he SUCKS. This is RIDICULOUS. Someone will please have to let me know how the Red Sox game turns out, because I will be busy KILLING MYSELF.

WOOOOO Manny just got a three-run homer! 8-3! Never mind, I guess I choose life after all. <3 <3 <3

Left work sick. Felt like a million bucks this morning, then all of a sudden it was like I'd taken a ton of bricks to the head. I hope it's just a combination of sleep deprivation and my period. I would like to not be sick, please.

Wanted to go out and watch the game, since it's Boomer's first start in Fenway as a Red Sox tonight, but now I guess I'm stuck with the radio. C'mooooon, Boomer. RenterĂ­a's proven me right. Your turn!

On a random note, Princess A-Rod used his understanding of crosswalks to circumvent natural selection.

My favorite part of the article is that it exists. A-Rod claims that after he spat on Darwin's grave, he just kept on a-walkin', and yet this made the news anyway, complete with several modest yet self-aggrandizing quotes (yes, you read that correctly) from our favorite Princess. I can't imagine how that happened. I bet A-Rod was on his cell to his publicist the second he turned a corner.

Actually, I bet the whole thing is a set-up. An eight year old boy who idolizes the Princess in Boston? Riiiiight.
