Snark break ...

Sure, your car can go 1,000 miles per hour, but does it have Yosemite Sam mudflaps?

Daunte Culpepper will not be a Kansas City Chief, apparently. The Chiefs handed him a contract to sign it, but he fumbled it.

Remember Saturday, when the only debacle in the World Series was Taylor Swift's rendition of The Star Spangled Banner?

It is stunning that the Atlanta Thrashers could be having attendance problems. Gary Bettman, you put franchises in places where ice is only seen in mint juleps. What's the worst that could have happened?

The National Post's Eric Koreen gets a hand for his line on the Oklahoma City Carpetbaggers Thunder: "(Kevin) Durant grows; will anybody watch or care?"

Eva Avila has a new album. Finally, a solution to the local shortage of drink coasters!

More great headlines that cannot be written ... "Charles Dubin: Dead at 87, forever associated with '88."

Stephen Colbert on the U.S. election: "John McCain has Barack Obama right where he wants him -- 15 to 20 points ahead with a huge African-American turnout." Colbert also noted that when McCain said Sunday that he was going to win, he was in a place called Waterloo.

The Ottawa Citizen has a look at the four pillars of the community who want to bring back the CFL.

This post is worth nothing, but this is worth noting:

  • Yes, you should buy a copy of Rolling Stone to get the full version of, "The Lost Years & Last Days of David Foster Wallace."
  • Crazy Luke Schenn fact: He was the 20th overall pick in the Western Hockey League bantam draft three years ago, which seems like a pretty good argument against drafting boys into juniors at 15 years old.
  • That post about OOLF's big soul-search for a NCAA football team will probably be completed about the same time Chinese Democracy is in stores ... nevertheless, it has been noticed that UConn Huskies really like their Canadians. Jesse Joseph, a D-lineman from Montreal's Vanier College, committed to UConn over the weekend. The coach who recruited him, Mike Foley, also had a lot to do with tight end John Delahunt, of Kanata, ending up in the Nutmeg State.
  • Jeremy Franklin, of Bath (west of Kingston), is apparently going to play college hockey at Mercyhurst, according to Chris Heisenberg.
  • Larry Mavety never has many new ideas: Forward George Lovatsis told the Whig-Standard that the Kingston Fronteancs permanent interim coach basically told the players "play or get outta here" on Sunday.

    One player who did get outta there, Jason Guy, was just named OHL goalie of the week with the London Knights. Taylor Hall, of Kingston, was player of the week.
  • The Ottawa Senators provincial women's hockey league team has five players skating for Team Ontario Red at the national under-18 championship in Napanee next week: goalie Cassie Séguin, defenders Bryanna Farris and Stefanie McKeough and forwards Isabel Ménard and Jamie Lee Rattray. Good for them.

What did Eva Avila ever do to you, man?

Appeared on a TV show starring Ben Mulroney and didn't kick him in the nuts.

Good point. You win this round.

I saw her on BT the other day. It was horrendous.
