Got your attention? Any good Monty Python sketch would…

Me, I think the New England Patriots trading Randy Moss while he has value is a good idea. Everyone knows this is a rebuilding year for the Pats, and coach Bill Belechick will now have multiple draft choices lined up for the first three rounds in the 2011 draft. Great pickup for the Vikings, though…

Bob Hope was right.

Rush Limbaugh channels The Great White Shank. Hey, I’m no Limbaugh fan by any stretch of the imagination – I’ve got my own mind – but when will people start to realize TGWS is always ahead of the curve?

The Phillies are going to be tough to beat this year.

Today was thankfully bening down here in central Arizona. Not so much for the folks up north. All I know is I pulled twenty pounds of debris out of my swimming pool after yesterday’s storms.

I’ve always loved this Enya song. But the lyrics are a little obscure to me. Jana would probably connect with their meaning…

I walk the maze of moments
but everywhere I turn to
begins a new beginning
but never finds a finish
I walk to the horizon
and there I find another
it all seems so surprising
and then I find that I know

You go there you’re gone forever
I go there I’ll lose my way
if we stay here we’re not together
Anywhere is…

The moon upon the ocean
is swept around in motion
but without ever knowing
the reason for its flowing
in motion on the ocean
the moon still keeps on moving
the waves still keep on waving
and I still keep on going

I wonder if the stars sign
the life that is to be mine
and would they let their light shine
enough for me to follow
I look up to the heavens
but night has clouded over
no spark of constellation
no Vega no Orion

The shells upon the warm sands
have taken from their own lands
the echo of their story
but all I hear are low sounds
as pillow words are weaving
and willow waves are leaving
but should I be believing
Then I am only dreaming

To leave the tread of all time
and let it make a dark line
in hopes that I can still find
the way back to the moment
I took the turn and turned to
begin a new beginning
still looking for the answer
I cannot find the finish
It’s either this or that way
it’s one way or the other
it should be one direction
it could be one reflection
the turn I have just taken
the turn that I was making
I might be just beginning
I might be near the end.

I can’t wait – in less than a week I’ll be drinking Sam Adams Octoberfest on draft in New England. Even if, as this excellent book relates, the guy never brewed a bottle of beer in his life. But my taste buds won’t care.

That was a great Ryder’s Cup this past weekend. Congrats to the Euros, they deserved it.

Pool temp: 76 degrees

  1. ……and I would “connect” because I am obscure or brilliant???? Just asking.

  3. With three great pitchers, the Phillies are going to get a quality start every game. I can’t see them losing four games to anyone. I think the Reds are already toast.

  4. I think the Rays and the Twins are toast as well. Looks like I’m going to have to start rooting for the Texas Rangers.

  5. Can’t go there. I’m a NL man. I’m a Twins fan because of all of my relatives and friends up there but once they’re gone, it’s Phillies, Giants, Reds, Braves … 🙂
