No, I have not lost my mind and yes, I know the title of the post is misspelled. It’s an homage to the LOLCats from icanhascheezburger.com and their incredible ability to make me laugh. Not to mention the fact that due to my viewing of the latest installment of Harry Potter (movie review available on movies page) last night, I didn’t get home til 3:30 and I really need caffeine. My eyes are slowly melting behind my glasses.
In other news, the American League defeated the National League All-Stars last night for the home-field advantage rights during the World Series. That means that when my Boston Red Sox are playing in the World Series, they’ll have the home-field advantage. Funny thing about the All-Star game…each player wears the uniform of the side in which they play for…for example:
Now, the interesting thing is most normal people who follow baseball and understand what’s going on will understand that this is the case and has been for many years. I mean, how confusing would it be if every player wore his own uniform and when throwing the ball you had to remember whether or not that guy was in your league or not before you threw it to him. So, they do it for the sake of uniformity…hence, the name, UNIFORM. However, some people who are not in the know but claim to be baseball fans, upon seeing a player, let’s say A-Rod, in the orange American League jersey (because the Yankees are in the American League) might be tempted to become distraught and discouraged into believing that their favorite player, hypothetically, has been traded or has signed with a new team. They might even exclaim to others around them in their confusion that they can’t believe that their favorite player (or possibly the only one they know) has been traded or is otherwise seen out of their basic pinstripes (or other colors, y’know, hypothetically). This, of course, is grounds for guffaws of laughter and extreme humiliation to the point of making phone calls during the All-Star game and leading to, but not exclusively, being called out in a friend’s blog. I mean, y’know…hypothetically.
So with that, I’ll just be napping under my desk until lunch time at which point I’ll come out to take a nap and then I’ll go back to taking my nap after lunch so that when I get home, I’ll be ready for my nap. Really, really need caffeine.
See you in the funny papers!
