People out there…

are thinking that a Milwaukee TV station choosing to air the Packers over and above a presidential speech is news. Believe me, having been born and spending much time in Wisconsin it would only really be news if the station had chosen to run the President’s speech and not the Packer game. President’s come and go but there’s only one Green Bay Packers football team and what TV station manager in Wisconsin in their right mind wants to field the calls of Packer fans wondering why the President is getting in the way of the game?

"Hey, I've Got an Idea…

we have a player that’s a sure Hall of Famer, admired by the fans, and one of the best people in the game. I know what to do, we’ll put him on waivers and trade him for someone called Player to be Named Later.”

Anyway, good luck to Jim Thome one of the true good guys in baseball. You get to escape the termite infested ship known as the Minnesota Twins and finish your career with the team you started out with (Cleveland Indians) and a possible shot at the playoffs. My condolences to “Player to be Named Later.” You already have two strikes against you. Not only does your current team not want you anymore but you have big shoes to fill when you arrive here.

Sigh…
