Wells v. Rodgers: The Quickening

Oh, right.

The Pirates signed Kip Wells to a 1 year, $4.15 million contract. Whatever. I'd like him to do better than 8-18 5.09 ERA, but if we can either work out something where he's cursing other teams or we can do the whole "Kip Wells Complete Game" every time I see him pitch, we'll be ok. Unfortunately, that would be like... 3 times per season max at Wrigley, but if it has the side effect of making Cubs fans sad, I'm all for it.

AND: I'm not a fan of the Yankees by any stretch of the imagination, but I think I might have to get this, if only to track down Glen Rodgers while I'm wearing it.

-The launch of the Pluto mission "New Horizons" was scrubbed today after high winds. They'll try again today. It'll take nine years to reach Pluto, so I'm going to file this under "relative non-news".

Which is really most of what this blog is anymore.

In other non-news, scientists have begun to probe Uranus.

Professor: "I'm sorry, Fry, but astronomers renamed Uranus in 2620 to end that stupid joke once and for all."
Fry: "Oh. What's it called now?"
Professor: "Urectum."

Heh, I love Futurama.

Okay Ryan . . . scientists are probing Urectum.

Sorry for the confusion.
