I don’t know what you guys think, but it’s been some week if you ask me. The latest [not all baseball related for this one]:
1. It’s A Bird.. It’s A Plane… No, It’s Both?
Yeah, apparently when you add both of those together you get some fear, craziness and one hell of news story. Check it:
Now, this type of thing would so not be funny if someone actually died, but since that miraculously didn’t happen… makes you think New York can handle anything. Bring. it. on. The whole situation was described as organized chaos and a “miracle”, however, I’d describe it as insanely weird… and completely awesome. Can you imagine being the police or whoever and getting the call saying like, “Hey, a plane just landed in the Hudson.” The first thing officials thought, according to news reports, was that it was a small aircraft. Now imagine their face when they show up on the scene and realize they were talking about a ginormous commercial airliner bathing in the Hudson River… which isn’t so smart considering how filthy that thing is. I don’t know how many noticed this but in all the pictures taken of that big boy in the water you cannot see anything that was underwater at all [such as the bottom of the plane slowly submerging, or even the people's feet while they were waiting on the wings to be rescued] and I’m talking even just an inch underwater. I think a more appropriate title for this astounding feat shouldn’t have been “Miracle On The Hudson” but more like “Miracle On That Big Flowing Thing We Call A Still Call River But Should Call A Land Fill”.
2. Uhh, That Global Warming Thing… You Guys Are Still Sure About That One Right?
It doesn’t need to be said, as I’m sure most were feeling it, but boy was it cold… nay, freezing the last couple of days. There are only a few days a year where you can leave your fridge unplugged / freezer door open and it wouldn’t make the slightest difference.. and today was definitely one of them. I can’t imagine how people who have it worse deal with it. Take these people for example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZjfScL_wRE … crazy much?
3. Mets Further Embarassed [Wait, Is This News?]
By now I’m sure everyone’s heard how badly the Mets are getting laughed at for their new inaugural season in Citifield patch “logo”, if you can even call it that, but it’s worth reiterating here: hahahaha… sorry. What I mean is, seriously? What were you thinking? You’re a baseball franchise (not a great one, but one nonetheless)… and to celebrate a new stadium, which you definitely needed and finally got, this is what you come up with?:
I almost feel bad. Like Mets’ fans need any more of a reason to feel embarassed…
P.S. The Max wants full credit for the Dominoes Pizza joke about the patch and I give it to them.
4. Change, Hope & All That Good Stuff Coming This Tuesday
And I’m psyched… not just because Obama has been more than inspiration already, without even stepping into office yet… not just because Obama will be the coolest President ever, whether or not he does a good job… not just because he isn’t like any President the U.S. has ever had… and not just because everyone [or at least the majority of people in the country] love him… because finally, we will no longer have to see that moron we’ve been forced to see pretend to know what he’s doing represent the U.S. I won’t pretend to know more about politics than I actually do, but even I wouldn’t have voted for him in the first place, much less a second time, but thank goodness for good old Amendment #22.
5. Thank MLK Jr.
Because of his dream I will soon be able to dream, instead of going days on 2 hours of sleep as I’ve been doing recently because of the incredible amount of work that’s being thrown at me in my senior year. I get the whole “preparing you for college” thing… but c’mon. I’ve never had to do so many papers is such a relatively short time in my life, which is what’s to blame for the lack of updates on this blog of late. I apologize again. Glad to say this will be me this weekend though:
