I like Stuff, and if he/she can throw things out there, why not G?
And that's two straight questions to open this post. You like?
OK, so this is what I'm thinking about at this time: Great win for the Cleveland Indians tonight, coming back in the 9th to tie their game against the ChiSox before winning in the 11th. Former UMer Jason Michaels' leadoff double helps lead the Indians to the win. Ryan Garko is hero of the night, however, tying game with two-run shot in 9th, broken-bat knock driving in the winner two innings later.
-- It was cool meeting actress Cindy Morgan today at the office, but I have one regret. I checked out Ms. Morgan's filmography online (to see if she had played anything other than Lacey Underall in Caddyshack) and found out she was in like three episodes of CHiPs. CHiPs! She also was in an episode of Vega$. Wish I would have known that this afternoon.
With all the useless information rattling around my brain, how did I not know this? Sure, I threw out a couple of lines from the movie, but Lacey, err, Ms. Morgan, hears that all the time. If I would have known about the CHiPs thing, I bet I would have gotten the Bushwood cap that instead went to Jeff Shain.
-- The Carolina Hurricanes got better today by getting Matt Cullen back in a trade with the Rangers. Good player squeezed out by the free-spending Blueshirts. Cullen was a big part of the champion Canes and fills a lot of roles for them. Good move.
-- It doesn't look like Martin Gelinas is going to be offered a contract by either Edmonton, Calgary or Vancouver. That means he's coming back to the Panthers for at least a third season. Gelinas signs with the Cats sooner than later.
-- There may be a better meal than the Pasta Caesar Salad w/ salmon or blackened tuna at Flanagan's, but I haven't found it. OK, the Char-cheeseburger at Char-Hut. But that's it.
-- I wish Larry King continued to do his little rants column in USA Today. I think Larry would agree with me on the previous comment. About the food, not about his column.
-- The new BBQ bacon chicken sandwich from BK looks really, really bad.
-- Caught the end of Vegas Vacation last night. It's gotten much better as time has gone on. Hated it when I saw it at the multiplex, find it OK on HBO. Same goes for Fletch Lives. Must be a Chevy Chase thing.
This comes from loyal reader Pete in Pennsylvania:
Hi George, Promotion idea for first home game. Give
out plastic rats to fans in honor of the 95-96 team's 10 year
anniversary. Have Mellanby on the bench as honorary captain &
encourage fans to litter the ice with rats after the first Panther
goal. Create some good mojo on opening night. Maybe it will be the
start of something. Whatya think? Year of the Rat II? Is the Chinese
Horoscope friendly to us this year?
I like it, although the league isn't going to go for the Panthers condoning fans tossing the rubber rodents onto the ice again. Unless, of course, they could tie it into a sponsorship with Disney's new movie about the rat who cooks gourmet French food.
