Thursday Clutter

Hi everyone, Welcome back! As the first half of 2011 comes to a close, what's your plan for the second half of the year? Is everything going according to plan, or do we need to make some mid-season adjustments like Theo Epstein right before the trade deadline? Well, no matter what, there will always be Clutter to clear out, so grab yourself a medium DD, and let's get to it. The good news about last night's Red Sox game is that no one got hurt, Big Papi was fine at first base and did a nice job of scooping up... Read more →


Wednesday Clutter

Hi everyone, Welcome back to Clutter Headquarters, we missed you! Come on in. How's your week going so far? Any big plans for the 4th? BDH and Little Buddha want to go to the beach, so now I'm looking for the world's smallest beach chairs. Help yourself to a cup of coffee, and let's get this show on the road. The best thing that can be said about the Red Sox losing 5-0 to the Philadelphia Phillies last night is that at least Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee didn't throw a no-hitter against them, because that certainly looked like a strong...

Tuesday Clutter

Hi everyone, Welcome back to the land of Clutter. How are you? I'm fine, just tired. I didn't sleep well last night, so I'm thinking this is probably a multi-DD day. BDH and Little Buddha are making it right now, would you like some? It looks like it should be a pretty nice day today. Oh, here they are. Thanks guys, much appreciated. Okay, let's get down to work.. Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is likely looking at a decade in jail after being found guilty on 17 corruption charges, including trying to sell President Obama's former Senate seat. Now...

Monday Clutter

Hi everyone, Welcome back. Wow, it's Monday again? How did that happen? Wait, June is almost over? How did THAT happen? At least the sun is shining, so that's a good way to start the week. Would you like some coffee? Grab yourself a cup, and then let's clear out some Clutter for Monday, June 27, 2011, starting right...now. The Red Sox finally snapped their four game losing streak, beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-2, thanks to a strong pitching job by Andrew Miller and four errors by the Pirates. I don't know what Dustin Pedroia did to warrant three pitches... Read more →


Sunday Clutter

Hi everyone, Come on in, come on in. Have a seat. How's your weekend going? You want some coffee? What am I saying, of course you do. Don't mind BDH and Little Buddha, they're still out cold. You want to clear out some Clutter? Yeah, let's do that. Tim Wakefield's return to Pittsburgh for the first time since 1995 was not triumphant as the Red Sox lost 6-4 to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Reddick and Jacoby Ellsbury each hit solo home runs for the Red Sox, but the team also went 0 for 8 with runners in scoring... Read more →


Saturday Clutter

Hi everyone, Welcome back, how are you? It's a chilly morning in Clutter Headquarters. I have my sweatshirt on, and BDH and Little Buddha are still under their covers. It would be a perfectly nice September morning, but my calendar says it's late June, so what's that about? In any case, grab yourself a medium DD to warm up, and let's clear out some Clutter. I thought enough history was made this week with the capture of fugitive mobster Whitey Bulger after 16 years, but then New York went ahead and legalized same-sex marriage. Congratulations to everyone involved in this... Read more →


Friday Clutter

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and happy Friday! What a crazy day yesterday. Bin Laden's been killed, the Boston Bruins won the cup, and now Whitey Bulger is in custody. What could possibly be the next major surprise? I can only guess, and that's something I'm happy to do while enjoying a nice medium DD. Care to join me? Grab a cup, pull up a seat, and let's clear out the final Clutter for this week. It's 24 hours later, and I'm still surprised that Whitey Bulger's been arrested, but does anyone else think this story sounds fishy? The FBI has... Read more →


Thursday Clutter

Hi everyone, We've got some big news to kick off the day. Grab your medium DD, and let's get right to the Clutter. It's hard to imagine how I could be more shocked than I was reading this morning's headline that fugitive mobster Whitey Bulger was arrested last night after 16 years on the run. I really believed he'd never be found (alive, at least), because I didn't think the FBI wanted to find him. It just seemed like it would be too embarrassing for them to have him talk about his relationship with the agency, and it was better... Read more →


Hi everyone, Come on in, BDH and Little Buddha just made a fresh pot of coffee. How's the week treating you so far? Things are quietly humming along at Clutter Headquarters. Have a seat, make yourself comfortable, and let's clear out a little Clutter. I had to do an errand yesterday morning that took me near Fenway Park. As I was walking down Brookline Avenue back to the Kenmore T stop, I looked up ahead and two guys were walking up Yawkey Way and turned right onto Brookline Ave. about a half block in front of me. The guy on... Read more →


Tuesday Clutter

Hi everyone, Happy summer solstice to you all. How's your week going so far? Grab yourself a medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. We're going to shake things up a little bit today and start today's Clutter off with a quiz. What do the following two songs have in common? (The answer is at the end of today's randomness.) 1) Twisted Sister and Alice Cooper (i.e. "The Most Awesome Pairing Ever") with "Be Cruel to Your School:" Twisted Sister - Be Cruel To Your School by liceberg 2) Lady Gaga with "The Edge of Glory," which would have...
