On Thursday, May 7th, I watched the Mets vs. Phillies and Oprah’s interview with Elizabeth Edwards. I guess cheating was the secret word, ala PeeWee’s Playhouse.
First, Shane Victorino needs to go somewhere, and going back to Hawaii isn’t even an option anymore. I just can’t stand him. After last night’s charade, seriously, he is always playing dirty in some way. The obstruction call on Reyes last night was so ridiculous. Victorino forgot what sport he was playing, and acted like a football player charging at Reyes. Manager Jerry Manuel came out to challenge the ump, and it ended up with Manuel getting tossed. Here’s the clip, if you missed it:
Yes, I have now dubbed him Shane the Bull, and another blogger, has shown his record of being a cheater, very well done:
To continue, Elizabeth Edwards was on Oprah to talk about her cheating husband, my former poltical inspiration, John Edwards. As many know, I was ready to make him our next president. It is annoying that Edwards are now in the spotlight again for this cheating scandal. Granted, it is willing. Elizabeth Edwards has a new book coming out, Resilience, and she’s promoting it. But, the issues that originally brought the Edwards into the political media realm are all but forgotten. Poverty, inequality and class… news media rarely covers anything about this anymore. I realized the news media isn’t the only one, I haven’t done much either. It prompted me to look at the organization that John Edwards unveiled a while back: Half in Ten, and get involved!
That’s all, folks. ;o)
