Rant #688: A Slow Week?
After last week's tumult caused by the death of Davy Jones, I need a week to completely relax, at least here on this blog.
Maybe this week is it.
I don't really think there is that much going on to report on this week.
I really don't care to report on Rush Limbaugh's mouth, which one again, got in the way of his thoughts when he spoke out about birth control.
The Republican Presidential race doesn't interest me that much, because for the life of me, God help us whomever wins their nomination. They are all losers.
I don't care that Lindsay Lohan was on "Saturday Night Live." According to reports--since I did not watch the show--she lived up to any low expectations anyone had of her.
I know the Knicks lost yesterday, and that Jeremy Lin was totally outplayed by Rajon Rondo. I sat through that game at home, watching it on TV. That Paul Pierce three-pointer that sent the game into overtime was the real dagger that killed the Knicks in that game.
All these things are trumped by one yearly rite that is taking place now in Florida.
Spring training has started, and the games have begun.
When spring training starts, you know that the nicer weather is right around the corner.
Here in the East, we haven't had much of a winter, thank goodness. It has been unseasonably warm, with very little snow, and that's really good.
Other places, well, they've gotten hit very hard thus far this year, and I feel for them, I really do.
But happily, it isn't in my neck of the woods.
So right now, things are pretty copacetic.
And maybe it will be this way this week.
But I thought last week was going to be that way, and then Jones passed away, very unexpectedly.
This past weekend, retro channels like Me TV and Antenna TV held tributes, and the Bio channel aired some shows about the Monkees and Davy Jones.
But they stopped just short of making it overkill, which was a good thing.
Hopefully, we won't have such news this week.
I need to relax.
