Who Said That?

Okay, pop quiz – who said this, in print, about meeting Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for the first time? “We met through a friend. The moment I saw him, he smiled and I was like, That is the most beautiful, charismatic smile I’ve ever seen! We sat and talked for three hours. I had to […]

Never Thought I’d See This

Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of a dark day in the history of the city of Baltimore, Maryland (a town I think is underrated, actually – I have quite liked it when I’ve traveled there). It was the day the Colts snuck out of town under cover of night and snow and relocated to Indianapolis. […]

Did You Turn It Off At 2-0?

I didn’t (but only because there were only about 25 minutes left and there wasn’t anything else on), and I’m glad. But if you did, here are highlights of the USA’s comeback from 2-0 down to tie El Salvador 2-2 in a World Cup qualifier on Saturday night (thanks to The Offside Rules for this […]

Idol Speculation: “It’s Under My Skirt!”

Oh, Paula. What are we going to do here? Did moving from Tuesday to Wednesday add one more day to your weekend, is that what it was? Last night’s American Idol saw Paula Abdul break out the crayons while drawing a word picture we really wanted to see 20 years ago, Simon Cowell be remarkably […]

A Public Service Announcement For Men My Age

If you dug Valerie Bertinelli when you were a teenager (didn’t we all?) and you admire women in their forties (again…), you’ll enjoy Barbara Cooper all grown up and slimmed down in this week’s Screw Up Your Life* People Magazine. I’m not saying buy it. But if someone you know buys it or you’re in […]
