A few quick thoughts as the spam attacks go crazy on my blog and cyber attacks are in the news:
Well, I picked the wrong spring/summer to try and plant some grass out in the yard. It has been so hot and so abnormally dry that I have little hope of the planted grass surviving. Next time around I suppose.
So . . . Michelle Bachmann is the blocking horse, situated in the primaries to block Sarah Palin for Mitt Romney, huh? Interesting.
Personally, I'm not interested in any political debates of any sort at this time. It just strikes me as bizarre and very controlling. New Hampshire debates? In June? Who the hell cares!?!
I'm still mourning the loss of the Heatles to the Dallas Mavericks. I'm very happy for Dirk, though. And I still love me some LeBron James and I don't care what anyone says or thinks about that.
Great win by the Baseball Gators over Mississippi State; I screamed like crazy when that three-run homer left the ballpark. Might as well go to Omaha and win it all now, gang.
Disappointing loss by the Baseball Noles to Texas A&M at home. I'll say this, though. The attendance figures for baseball at Florida and Florida State are very close but the Noles have a "crowd-advantage" in baseball similar to ours in football. That crowd stuck around last night until the very end and was extremely enthusiastic. Very impressive. That said, it's time for Mike Martin to go -- FSU needs some fresh blood as head of their baseball program.
The Democrats are manufacturing a meme on Governor Rick Scott (unpopular, blah-blah-blah -- question: how did that popularity help Charlie Crist, huh???) that we shouldn't be too concerned with right now but the Governor and his people must start effectively countering it right now.
Yes, I still think Barack Obama is toast . . . as long as our side doesn't fall for the obvious intra-party scrap that turns into something of an unnecessary civil war. Job number one: Obama must be defeated.
Job number two: Obama must be defeated.
As long as we reach some sort of accommodation between the Republican establishment and our grassroots that is genuinely attentive to and -- hopefully -- respectful of the grassroots, the enthusiasm out in the country to get Obama out will carry the day.
I believe we're predicted to have 100-degree days for the next two or three days. With high humidity, of course. Bring it on, Florida Boy can hang. Would be nice to get some soaking rain in the afternoon, though.
