Welcome back. A Happy Easter Sunday to all of you who are celebrating such things. I hope the Easter Bunny was very kind to you this year. If he was too generous, please feel free to deliver any surplus candy to Clutter Headquarters, where you will make a small blue dog and jade Buddha very happy. In any case, help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out a little Clutter.
The single most positive thing I can say about Josh Beckett and the Boston Red Sox being crushed 10-0 by the Detroit Tigers yesterdayis that I'm thankful it's a long season. Hopefully Clay Buchholz will be effective and the bats will show some life today. I could hear the delighted screams of certain Boston sportswriters when I turned down the TV yesterday, but we have a long way to go before we know what we've got with this team.

Ozzie Guillen is off to a great start as the Miami Marlins manager after telling a magazine he loves Fidel Castro.
For all of their differences, Newt Gingrich and President Obama do share one common goal: To keep Mitt Romney from moving to the political center for the general election. It's like I've always said, any two people can find at least one thing to agree on.
Saddened to hear that Mississippi continues to deny women the ability to make their own health care decisions, and would put these mothers, sisters, and daughters at-risk by passing misguided legislation that would eliminate the state's last abortion clinic.
The Anime Boston Convention is this weekend, which means there are some colorful characters walking the city streets right now. I don't know anything about Anime Boston, and I can't even begin to describe the costumes I saw on the T yesterday, but I say more power to these kids for doing their thing and not giving a damn what anyone else thinks. The world would be a better place if more people would just let their freak flag fly more often.
It looks like Tim Tebow's got a back-up plan in case this football thing doesn't work out.
Congratulations to Boston College on winning their third hockey championship in the last five years by beating Ferris State 4-1. Also, congratulations to Ferris State for their first appearance in the championship game.
There is so much fun stuff in this article about a new oral history of Friends, we could probably spend all day just talking about that. Argh. I want to talk about the potential cast members that could have been, but I don't want to ruin the fun, so you'll just have to read this first. I trust you all appreciate the sacrifice I'm making here, but that's me, thinking of each and every one of you and putting your needs before my own. But seriously, Neil Patrick Harris? Okay, I'm moving on.

Okay kids, that's going to do it for now. There are things to be done and people to be seen before watching the Boston Red Sox try for the third time to secure their first win of the 2012 season. Keeping in line with today's message of "just doing your thing," here are the Soup Dragons with today's, "Song of the Day:
Thanks for stopping by, everyone. It was great to see you as always. Enjoy the rest of your day, and feel free to come back later today if you just want to hang out or something. (I'm out of beer, though, so if you could pick up some Sam Adams Summer Ale, that would be great.) Otherwise, we'll see you back here again for more fun soon. Until next time, that's today's Clutter, and we are outta here.
