Random thoughts

I've gotten plenty of email this past week on why I've not made any comments on various subjects. Well, a lot has happened in the news so I guess I'll comment on some of it.

I gave my opinion on the Alex Rodriguez steroids admission and the media wasn't satisfied with his statement. They got their wish and on the first day of spring training a big press conference was scheduled. He answered the questions but in the end nobody believed a word he said. I think the media would only be satisfied if he had injected himself right there. What do they want from the guy? I will no longer comment on this issue as all that can be done is to stop from here on out. If anybody gets caught now they're stupid, and then I'll write about being stupid.

Speaking of stupid, rap/hip hop star Chris Brown "allegedly" beating up his girlfriend fellow music star Rihanna. First off, why is he beating up a woman? This supposedly perfect 19 year old boy (real men don't beat women), according to his family, would never do this. Guess what kids? He's just another piece of garbage who doesn't deserve a girlfriend in the first place. Secondly, he's just 19 with money and a great career (I wouldn't know his songs to save my life) ahead of him and he may have ruined it by his cowardice. He of course has apologized, yawn, and is vowing to get help. As for Rihanna, rumors are that this abuse has been happening awhile. I understand, from reading, that women can have problems escaping these abusive relationships mostly due to fear for their lives. Was this her reason for staying? I don't know. Because they are celebrities we hear about this story. I have no say in their or anybody elses lives yet here I am commenting on it. Rihanna dump his sorry weak integrity ass and get a real man. I write this today and saw this blurb earlier, against her family and friend's wishes Rihanna has moved back in with Chris Brown. OJ, make room company is coming.

Drew Peterson's on again, off again, on again, off again, on again, off again engagement is on again. I say we all crash the wedding this summer. Who's in?

Roland Burris looked in a mirror and saw Rod Blagojevich. When does his achievements tour kickoff?

The stimulus bill is signed, $795bb. Foreclosure plan enacted, $75bb. Living in the USA, priceless.

I have no sympathy or stupid women. Don't get me wrong, I am not totally heartless but if you're dumb enough to put yourself back in that position then I don't want to hear the whining when he does it again. People sure are stupid.

ARod didn't answer the questions. The so called press conference was just a staged gathering just like most of them are. No follow up's were allowed which meant he could say whatever he wanted when cornered.
'Young and stupid' at 24 which was his 7th year in the league? Who at this stage while considered one of the best in baseball, decides to inject himself with something he doesn't even know what it was? He didn't know if he was using it right? Please! The media didn't get what they wanted, they wanted the truth.
As far as Drew Peterson goes, it's like I said months ago, it's Reality Show time. Hopefully he will spill the beans and that circus will be closed.....

What more do you want the guy to say? He's not under oath. As I said, who cares now.

Tara I'm with you.

Then don't have a staged press conference where you don't tell the 'whole' truth! Who cares? Obviously he cares about trying to fix his now suspect reputation. He made that worse with answers.
If he is sitting at the end of May with a .220avg. with 4HR's and 8RBI's, you'll see who cares........
