The Long A.A.R.M. of Steve O...

Aimless Assembly of Rambling Musings

Clearing the proverbial docket.

Dodgers Do Little. So yesterday Dodgers Manager Grady Little (ahem) "resigned." Asked why, he said
"I've got my own, personal reasons. It's a mutual resignation. I know this is the best way to go. It's not an easy decision, as anyone might suggest, but it's final." Meanwhile, general manager Ned Colletti said that he (Little) could have remained manager if he had so chosen even going so far as to say "I wanted Grady Little back." Of course this all is oh-so-convenient and clears the way for Joe Torre to step in to replace him. You know this is yet another slap in the face to sports fans everywhere. Does anyone on the face of this planet think for one second that Grady Little could have remained manager of the Dodgers had he so chosen? Perhaps once... ONCE in our lifetime an organization will come clean and tell us, the general public, those that essentially pay your salaries, the truth and nothing but.

And for the record, why couldn't the Phillies have done this? I know they re-upped The Unc but when you have a chance to get a Hall of Fame caliber manager. Is it fair? Of course not. The smart baseball move to make? In my opinion, yes. I know I will catch flak for that but, it's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

Phone Home Eliot. Have you been following this story? New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, for reasons apparently known only to him, thinks illegal immigrants should be given New York driver's licenses. This is completely insane on so many levels that I don't know where to start.

Yes I do. With the security of this country you buffoon. Perhaps you might remember September 11, 2001. If so you may also recall that the hijackers purchased the tickets using fake identification such as... you guessed it... drivers licenses!

And now this muttonhead Spitzer wants to make it easier for terrorists, AKA illegal immigrants, by providing illegal immigrants with actual, valid licenses!

Spitzer's response to all of this was to declare critics of his plan as "anti-immigrant."

Nothing short of an impeachment of this clown should satisfy anyone in the state of New York or in the entire country for that matter.

Ok, Who Had Plainville and 87? Smith Center High School in Kansas scored 72 points in the first quarter of a high school football game Tuesday night on the way to an 86-0 win over Plainville. Yeah, you heard right. They scored 72 points in ONE QUARTER. Jeez, not even Bellichick would run it up that much that fast... would he?

A Flawed System. I honestly believe if given the chance to do it all over again, God would make it so people had to pass a test or show some semblance of intelligence before procreating. Think about it. How illogical is that you must pass a test to drive a car, sell insurance or be a flight attendant yet anyone under the clear blue sky can have a child? The latest testament to this belief comes from Phoenix where a 22-year old woman is in jail after her 17-month-old son died from being left in the car for at least seven hours while she worked. The high temperature in Phoenix the day in question was 89 degrees while readings inside the vehicle reached upwards of 110 degrees. How do you make sense out of a senseless act?

To Schill Or Not To Schill. So should the Phillies go hard after Curt Schilling? I know all about his locker-room antics and off the field goings on where he never met a microphone he didn't like, but... if the Phillies are serious about winning, then go get him. And go get Mike Lowell and anyone else you think can help this team get over the hump. AROD? Was never, ever gonna happen and we all know it. So stop dreaming.

'Til next time.
