Sunday Clutter

Hi everyone,

Welcome back.  Sorry it's so chilly in here.  The calendar says "almost June," but the temperature inside Clutter Headquarters says, "early October."  BDH and Little Buddha had to dig out their winter pajamas last night.  This seems like a good time for some hot coffee.  Help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out a little Sunday Clutter.

Congratulations to the Boston Bruins for knocking the New York Rangers out of the playoffs with a 2-1 victory yesterday.  Now they move on to face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference final, where the winner gets to play for the Stanley Cup.  Go B's!

Starting pitcher Jon Lester didn't look that sharp yesterday, but the Red Sox came back to beat the Cleveland Indians 7-4 in what was truly a team effort.   Clay Buchholz takes the mound today to hopefully secure the series win against manager Terry Francona and the Indians, because hey, it was great to see you come back, Tito, but this is business.

Why is the men's winner of this year's Boston Marathon returning his medal?

This is interesting:  Republican Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is vetoing bills sent to her by the GOP-run legislature until they approve a Medicaid expansion.  Usually I'd expect there to be some sort of threat in order to block such an expansion.  I'm looking forward to seeing how this one plays out.

A new study says that daily soda consumption can increase your risk of kidney stones.  I'll tell you, I say this as a Coca-Cola shareholder, but the single best move I've made for my health was slashing my soda consumption down to almost nothing.  Now, having said that, as a Coca-Cola shareholder, I'd point out that the company offers many other beverages besides soda, so feel free to consume as much of those as you like, so the massive Clutter stock portfolio will continue to grow.

Walk-off home runs are an exciting way to end a baseball game (as long as it's someone on your team who hit it.)  One of the only things that might be more exciting than that?  An inside-the-park walk-off home run, like Angel Pagan of the San Francisco giants delivered against the Colorado Rockies yesterday:


The moment that so many have been waiting for is finally here:  the return of Arrested Development!  Now, will you space out the episodes, or are you going to watch the entire season in one sitting?

Mom Clutter saw the movie Mud yesterday and said it was very good.  I'd never heard of it before her review, but after watching the trailer, it seems like it has potential.   I'm surprised that Matthew McConaughey is shirtless in the movie, because that doesn't seem like something that happens often.  In any case, who wants to see it?


Actor Bernard Cribbins says he's not part of the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special in November.   Maybe that's the case, but with a growing number of former Who stars (including all of the living Doctors besides David Tennant) all saying they aren't participating either, I just wonder if perhaps some of them aren't being truthful.  As the saying goes, "The Doctor lies," and so does showrunner Steven Moffat at times.  Perhaps this is a way of protecting some surprises for the special?  Or perhaps none of these guys are involved.  I guess there's only one way to find out.

Is Mariska Hargitay returning to Law & Order: SVU?  Clutter's got the answer for you right here.

Okay kids, that's going to do it for now.  Our Memorial Day tribute continues on with Bruce Springsteen and John Fogerty closing things out with today's, "Song of the Day."


Thanks for stopping by, everyone.  It was great to see you, as always.  Dad Clutter is coming down soon, so we'll be out for a little while, but you're always welcome to come back later if you want to hang out tonight.  Otherwise, enjoy the rest of your day, try to stay warm, and we'll see you back here again for more fun soon.  For now, that's today's Clutter, and we are outta here.
