Bored and Unkind

My, but it is blustery today. I can't connect remotely to my home computer from work, so I suspect the power may be out at home.

I haven't watched much of the Olympics since the first weekend. Too many events I'm indifferent about, too many lame X-events, too much Bode Miller, and what the frell is up with all the curling? I did like the opening ceremony in all its goofiness, because the Olympics™ generally takes itself so seriously that it was nice to see things like a Ferrari doing donuts in the center of the arena, and Ronco's greatest hits of the Seventies and Eighties being played during the Parade of Nations. Bringing in Yoko was a thing of genius!

Baseball is stuck in the silly season between the opening of camps and the first exhibition games. Too many reporters with way too much time on their hands, so one has to be very careful about eye rolling injuries here, as well. The best news so far is that Eric Gagne seems to be healthy.
