Quote of the day
"The interesting thing here is that both the Republicans on the Committee and the Democrats on the Committee agreed that Clemens had not been truthful. I think that’s the last agreement the Republicans and the Democrats have had in the Congress over the last three years." -- ESPN legal analyst Lester Munson, commenting on Roger Clemens being indicted for perjury
Based on today’s quote, maybe Roger Clemens can resurrect his legacy as being “the great uniter.”
Ted Lilly certainly seems to be enjoying his trade to the Dodgers. In four starts for L.A. (including last night’s complete game 2-hit shutout), he’s 4-0 with a 1.89 ERA and a 0.63 WHIP. It’s not like he’s had cupcake matchups, either, as he’s beaten the Padres, the Braves, and the Rockies.
As a total digression, I note with amusement the various google-supplied ads that I’m currently seeing to the right of this blurb. They are supposedly chosen to be relevant to the content on this page, and thus they typically are for something sports-related, or even fantasy sports-related. But the three ads that I see at this moment (and I realize they are probably different for you) are titled “Fareguru.com”, “Become a Flash Guru”, and “Guru Jobs”. I guess they figure you are all coming here based on your interest in Gurus.

You assume this isnt the case?

I suppose I should not doubt the wisdom of Google.

What ads? I haven't seen any ads since I got my new PC in Feb. Also, I have not ever seen ads to the side of RG.|
Guess I'm lucky.

Never underestimate the public's interest in Gurus.

Maybe it's time to bring back the Guru Jr. award. ;)

Heh. That's a blast from the past.|
I myself was once named Blue Hen, Jr.. An award conspicuously absent from my official resume.

What would Blue Hen do about that?
