They had to make room in Olympic Village for the competitive eaters.

at least we still have dressage. it served a modern-day purpose.

And yet we'll still have synchronized swimming.

And at the next Olympics, the ancient Greek sport of golf.

Or, perish forbid, they could clean up international wrestling's PED, and HGH and other drug issues like MLB, the NBA, NASCAR or the NFL.

Where is Bruno Sammartino when you need him?

What's a Grecian urn?


Oh, about a hundred drachmas a day...

F-ing IOC is gonna ruin everything. That dressage lobby is really a bitch.

The upside is one less sport NBC has to pretend to cover. More primetime coverage of pouting gymnasts.

Oh man, John Keats. My favorite. He is memorialized in Westminster Abbey and I teared up seeing it. His sonnet When I Have Fears (which I have memorized but won't bore you with ;) is so beloved to me. And his last words to a friend before his death at 25 of TB: "I can scarce bid you adieu in a letter. I always made an awkward bow." Heartbreakingly perfect.

Okay, English major geeking out over. Is it baseball season yet? MLB.tv just sent me my renewal letter, so fun is nigh!

When I have fears that I may cease to be,
I take another drink, or two, or three.

But we keep 35 odd fucking weightlifting and diving events, badminton - BADMINTON!, ping pong, as mentioned sync swimming, sync diving, nonstop coverage of every qualifying swimming heat, boxing match, and foot race. One of the greatest sports photos ever taken of Rulon Gardner's boots left on the mat will now be a footnote of a forgotten sport.

So tired of winter news, where's the baseball?


On a lighter note, Hall & Oates will be at New Orleans Jazz fest this year. If Darryl's House (look it up) is any indication, it may well be a fantastic performance. Or it could be an 80's review in which case on to the next stage I would go.

Darryl's house is the shit.

I would like to enlist the talents of the following:

Jonny Rodz
Arnold Skogland
Lou Albano
Marcel Cerdan

English lit majors raise your gauntlets high and proclaim: Doest thou desirest fries or onion rings with thine order, madame?
My team would add Steve Austin! Gimme a hell yeah!

3 Words: Abdullah The Butcher.

sorry. And you thought Jim Rice was treated unfairly: http://www.notinhalloffame.com/wwe/current-wwe-inductees/item/1678-abdullah-the-butcher


Yeah, I know.

Just Abdullah being Abdullah

Ric Flair anyone?

For those of you needing more ways to kill time, the Pedroia's now have (separate) twitter accounts.

On a log,expiring frog ;O
