Tuesday Clutter

Hi everyone,

Welcome back!  Come on in.  How are you?  How was your Monday?  Mine was decent.  I can't say I was moving at top speed for some reason, but it was pretty productive.  My train home took 45 minutes to go four stops, which was a shame, but hey, at least the A/C was working.  You take what you can get, you know what I mean?  Actually, what I mean is that you should help yourself to a nice medium iced DD, because it's time to clear out some Tuesday Clutter.

Quick quiz:  What's better than a walk-off home run against the New York Yankees?  Nothing.  Nothing at all.


While everyone is fawning over the new prince, British Prime Minister David Cameron is trying to make all Internet pornography "opt-in" in his country.  However one feels about this particular type of content, having the government regulate what type of information is available on the Internet is never a good idea.

I'm sorry, is San Diego Mayor Bob Filner mentally ill?

I'm happy to hear that last year's NL MVP Ryan Braun has been suspended for the rest of the season for violating Major League Baseball's drug policy, and I'm not going to lie, I hope this hangs around his neck for the rest of his career.  Braun escaped his punishment last year by trashing the guy who was simply doing his job by collecting his drug specimen, and I'm not hearing any apology for that yet.

Hey A-Rod, the clock's ticking.

This is good news, Doctor James Andrews told Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz that he can resume throwing.  I thought for sure Andrews was going to tell him he needed some type of surgery.  Hopefully getting this feedback from the good doctor will give Buchholz the confidence he needs to finally get back on the mound.

Pitcher Matt Garza's been the subject of a lot of Red Sox - related speculation this season, but he's heading to the Texas Rangers instead.  I'm fine with this.  I know the Sox need some pitching help (definitely in the bullpen, and maybe in the starting rotation), but I think they've got a  big-league roster that's clicking on multiple fronts, and their farm system looks ready to keep them stocked for years to come.  Obviously I want them to win it all, but I don't want them to make a major move that they'll regret down the road.  I say they should just trade Stephen Drew and some single A guy I've never heard of for whatever they can get.

Oh my god.  Oh.  My.  God.  I can't deal.  I just can't.  I can't deal with how awesome the trailer for the Doctor Who 5oth anniversary special sounds.  I need the Internet to bring this to me.  I don't care where it comes from, I don't care if laws have to be broken for me to watch it.  If I don't see it before we're done here today, I might pull a legit Grade A nutty.   I can't deal.

Condolences to the family and friends of actor Dennis Farina, who died yesterday at age 69.  Farina, a former Chicago cop, had a long career in both television and the movies, and it always seemed like there was just a hint of a grin in every performance, as if to say, "Can you believe I'm doing this?" 

Okay kids, that's going to do it for now.  i can't find the Doctor Who trailer anywhere, so I need to go have my meltdown.  In the meantime, I just watched Dennis Farina in Get Shorty a few weeks ago, so let's have him close things out with today's, "Clip of the Day."


Thanks for stopping by, everyone.  It was great to see you, as always.  Enjoy the rest of your day, and you know you're welcome to come back and watch the Sox play the Tampa Bay Rays with us tonight.  In any case, be good, and we'll see you again soon.  For now, that's today's Clutter, and we are outta here.
