1. I'm officially freaked out by the blogspot thing. I may end up deleting this blog and starting fresh somewhere. Seems absolutely ridiculous, though, so I'm waiting it out a bit. The help room says that e-mail addresses are permanent.
2. It is ridiculously cold here in Baltimore. I hate this kind of weather. It makes me worried that baseball tryouts start in exactly 23 days. I was so excited back in January when I was being fired and the weather was 65 degrees.
3. So... the Super Bowl. I admittedly missed the first quarter, but it's hard to argue that those last three quarters were as slow and boring as sports are going to get minus the hype. I can never understand how someone who likes football could possibly say that baseball is boring. I mean, it certainly has its boring moments, but football has them, too.
4. The commercials were mostly snoozers, as well. How many CBS promos can you have? I'm happy for Dungy and Manning, though. I guess. I really didn't care who won this game.
5. Thank god for Prince. Once he stopped singing Foo Fighters covers, he was awesome. Actually, the Dylan cover was pretty cool. He's a much better guitar player than I ever would have imagined.
6. Of course, the Super Bowl is generally the signal for me that Spring Training is two weeks away. Yahoo!
7. I'm tossing the idea around of flying down to Florida for a weekend to visit my grandparents. They're getting old, as any grandparents of a 29-year old guy would tend to get. I heard Grandma's legs are hurting so bad lately that she has to use a cane and is constantly scared of falling. I'm hoping they both have another 20 years in them, but I know the end could come any time. I want to see them as much as possible.
8. I'm dreading waking up at 5am to go out in 5 degree weather. My bones already ache.
9. Is there a more embarassing politician than John McCain these days? Every time I hear something he says, I get sickened for him and his "Straight Talk" Express. Probably because I used to have quite a bit of respect for him.
10. I saw parts of Sheila Dixon's "State of the City" address. I'm sorry, Ms. Dixon, but I think your stay in office will be a short one. You have the charisma of a light bulb. I'm rooting for you, though. You seem like a nice lady.
11. I'm so glad I got into 24 again this year. I race home to get to see it on time every Monday, and tonight I wasn't disappointed. Woah! And next week is two hours...
