3 text messages, 18 missed calls and 96 emails. I am a person who incessantly checks his email, so even seeing 5 email notifications get me nervous but I have never in my life stared at 117 total notifications and I nearly shit myself which would have sucked on the 405 in rush hour.
Anyway, I hate my life, I hate having to answer 96 emails, I hate LA, I hate Westwood, I hate the fact they have beautiful beaches, babes in bikinis and endless summer and I hate the f&cking 405

The NFL put together a veteran's combine this weekend where the likes of Michael Sam, Felix Jones and Mike Golic Junior ran through a bunch of agility drills with the hope they could catch the attention of a scout. I believe the NFL network broadcast the entire thing which is great since it probably still drew better than hockey or baseball but I think that this experiment might very well be a one-and-done thing because it seemed that the reason these were all ex-NFL players was pretty obvious....they had all gotten fat..
Looking over the 40 times of a bunch of running backs, I saw that Mikel Leshoure turned into Michael Bush and Michael Bush turned into Michael Moore because these guys who were once world-class athletes were starting to get into Rich Eisen territory..
the saddest time was that of Felix Jones who clocked in on with a sun-dial time of 4.8 which basically proved that he went from Felix the Cat to Garfield.
Deadspin says there was even some load who clocked in at 6 seconds.. you could eat a lasagna in less time than that..
anyway, maybe the NFL can expand the rosters to 60 spots.. give a couple of guys a shot at making the big league and (hopefully) rotate a few of them in so the head-to-head collisions for any individual player can come down a bit.

Plus, if we had to vote in very single election between local, state, county and federal voting, I'd never get any work done. You'd be debating the merits of every dog catcher and country comptroller for hours

For one because the basically all white (and asian) clientele being served by an almost entirely minority staff, race relations although civil still show a gigantic rift right at their espresso station. Maybe open up a couple of Starbucks in East New York or Compton and see a social experiment in action or do some community outreach in minority neighborhood instead of writing "race matters" on a side of a coffee cup for a completely white washed clientele looking for a caffeine kick
I am all for Starbucks tackling issues like clean water, sustainable harvesting and better working conditions for their bean pickers but race is a bit heavy at 8am when the only race I want to hear about is the one my heart will be doing when I pound down a Venti Pike Place Roast with a double espresso thrown over top.

TOR has been on the forefront of an overhaul of mental health system especially as it relates to crime but there are times when the issue at hand can't be blamed solely on that. This is a gang issue and one that needs to be addressed as such.
Mayor, stand up and do what is right by this city and do what the people elected you to do by having some guts and showing real leadership.

As it turns out Crazy Al seems like the same one in that father-son duo because good god does Mark Davis look like an imbecile . This guy's got the football acumen of John Idzik, an infatuation with ashed up players like Khloe Kardashian and the haircut of Lloyd Christmas. Although you can kind of see why Crazy Al saw in Jon Gruden because Mark looks like his multiplicity half brother. If his brother had an IQ of 46
No wonder they will never be relevant again
Although it has been pointed out to me that now that the 49ers have lost half their team to retirement or free agency including their best two best assets (Jim Harbaugh and Patrick Willis) that the chances of them being the new doormat of the bay might be a real possibility

If you look at the calendar event you will see a little "?" next to their name as oppose to the green check mark or red X if they have either accepted it declined the invite.
I looked in the iGeek online forums and they aren't much help as the best explain action I can find is that because people have an iCloud account with corresponding email address which they never use, the email invites just flyer lost in cyberspace

But the one I read today about a guy bitching that they turned around the flight because somebody dropped a horrific deuce in the toilet takes the cake. I mean the fact you turns around and are stuck in Heathrow for a full day sucks but who the hell wants to be on a 10 hour flight with the smell of a truck pisser invading the aisles. I have to move subway cars if I catch myself on one with one of those gigantic homeless people who smell like a combination of urine, dog shit and decaying flesh and could not imagine sitting for a half a day in seat 56E. Thus is the one time the airline was right

Obviously my desires for one is not all that real but I did find it interesting that some Atlanta based minister has asked his congregation for $60 million for one, what is even better about the story is that his name is Minister Dollar which is an absolutely perfect name for somebody asking for sixty million of them

Now maybe big Vlad is on a vacation riding on horseback around the steppe shirtless or maybe he's sumo wrestling a Boris Yeltsin looking bear but one thing is for sure, he's impossible to find right now. This is like Min Kardashian going dark (you see what I did there) out of the blue and not posting a new Instagram shot for a week, Vlad IS Russia, he is on TV all of the time basking in his own glory
So if somebody has seen Vlad, please send a tip to TOR and we'll try to verify it. My guess is that he is personally inspecting that flight MH370 which landed under cover o night in the desert in Kazakstan last year

At least when people go nuts at a baseball game there are 50,000 other people looking, in this case the only people who are even paying attention are the same people in the shot
Get a life and get out of my way

But today's Mayweather-Pacquiao was one for the ages if for no other reason than for some dude wrong up on stage wearing the most ridiculous toupee ever
By the way the WBC/WBA/WWF and WNBA should all come to an agreement that Pacquiao should be allowed to juice before this fight because we have all waited too long to see this now washed up loser get his ass handed to him by Pretty Boy Floyd

There really is nothing lamer than somebody sporting a Yankee jersey with the name printed on the back, except maybe getting your hot-dog bun signed by Michael Kay while wearing said jersey. I sort of get the argument that you might not want everybody to think you are a big Luis Sojo fan cause you have a #19 jersey on but it is utterly ridiculous for any Yankee fan walking around Steinbrenner field wearing an iconic number like 2,3,4,5,7,8,8 or 42. So take your mustard stained jersey off and come back when you've removed the letters.
It's not as if Michael Kay doesn't realize that Wayne Tolleson wore #2

I'm not sure how many people were really surprised when they read that the boys from ΣΑΕ weren't the gentlemen their national chapter prided themselves on being. This was a fraternity set up in the Deep South and from an informal poll I did online a number of people who pledged the frat do acknowledge that this was not a completely isolated incident. What shocks me is that this shocks anybody. Frat boys are not exactly the most upstanding citizens on a college campus, just look at the hazing, date rape and male nudity that happens at these houses n a regular basis. The University of Oklahoma can act like this is shocking to me but that is like Bud Selig saying he was shocked that Sammy Sosa and Big Mac were juicing.
Every dude on that bus knew those lyrics,my and sang it with such gusto and enthusiasm that you know this wasn't some isolated case no matter how much the frat boys will claim it was all innocent fun

A year ago they were $199 then they dropped to $150, then to $99 and now they are giving them away when you buy a latte and even then people are just leaving them in the store.

Maybe they should concentrate on something worthwhile like decriminalizing marijuana usages
