Baseball Juice

It is no real secret that baseball’s drug policy is a mockery. Like every other major sport, baseball has a written drug policy, however unlike other sports the policy has absolutely no teeth. There is no testing for anything other than steroids and even that is a total joke. Baseball needs to get the list out of all those invovled with the use of steroids and apply the appropriate punishments. It’s time to just piss in the cup!

Why Did I Go to College?

My theory is that employers prefer college grads because they see a college degree chiefly as mark of one's ability to obey and conform. Whatever else you learn in college, you learn to sit still for long periods while appearing to be awake. And whatever else you do in a white collar job, most of the time you'll be sitting and faking attention. Sitting still for hours on end, whether in library carrels or office cubicles, does not come naturally to humans. It must be learned, although no college has yet been honest enough to offer a degree in seat-warming.

Or maybe what attracts employers to college grads is the scent of desperation. Unless your parents are rich, you will walk away from commencement with a debt averaging $20,000 and no health insurance. Employers can safely bet that you will not be a trouble-maker, a whistle-blower or any other form of non-"team-player." You will do anything. You will grovel.

Wicked Safe.

Anyone ever heard of the new "tabletop fireplaces?" Sounds like a disater waiting to happen if you ask me. The Tabletop Smokeless Fireplace uses efficient biofuel to create a blazing fire with no smoke, so you can use it indoors with no chimney. Whatever happened to a good old-fashioned candle?

Only In New England

Only in New England could it be 70 degrees one day and within less than 48 hours below freezing and a Nor’ easter raging outside and the weather man predicting a foot of snow.

So as the saying goes if you live in New England and don’t like the weather, wait five minutes and it will change.

Relieved it's finally getting nice out.

R. Kelly Writes Song for Virginia Tech

R. Kelly has written a new song, "Rise Up," about healing in the aftermath of the April 16 shootings at Virginia Tech. A gunman killed 32 people and himself on the university's campus in Blacksburg, Va.

"Rise Up" will be available digitally May 15, and 100 percent of the net proceeds from its sale will go to the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund, said Jive Records, Kelly's record label.

Kelly, 40, wrote the inspirational ballad after watching the events unfold on television while he was on tour.

My Friend the Reality TV Star

My friend Matt, who is actually my best friend's older brother (but I am very close with him) is one the the 25 finalists for the next season of the MTV show The Real World. Technically, it would be two seasons from now because they are currently filming the upcoming season. Apparently they are creating an MTV website with each finalist's casting tape and pictures on it and people will vote on who they want to see on The Real World. I can't think of anyone who would be better on this show, he is absolutly insane, so when the site is up you should all vote for him, his names Matt Blair, and he said the site should be up by next week.

Citizens Bank can go to Hell

I am so sick and tired of citizens bank screwing me over. They take out six bucks every month for some bull**** fee and do it on whatever day they feel like it. I'm in college, my bank account has been as low as 34 cents. Warn me before you take out six dollars. So now I've got -45 because they charge you something outrageous for every day your account is negative (which has only been a day). I wan't to physically walk to the closest citizens bank right now and punch the first teller I see.

The Oscar's Loved Boston

Last night at the 79th annual Academy Awards, the Boston mobster flick The Departed walked away with a handful of Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director. The Departed is the first movie filmed in Boston to win Best Picture. This was also a first time win for Director Martin Scorsese. I'm dissapointed Mark Wahlberg didn't win for Best Supporting Actor, he was really great in the movie. If you havn't already seen the movie, I recommend that you do.

Amazon SCAMazon

My roomate recently put a digital camera up for sale on www.amazon.com for 80$. To make a long story short some dude from Australia said he'd buy it but he wanted it shipped to Nigeria because it was a gift for a friend and he'd pay the extra $$ for shipping and what not. One week later my poor roomate still hadn't seen any money and after calling both amazon.com and the attorney general learned that this guy had developed an elaborate scam and her camera was not only gone for good but the 60$ she paid to ship the thing was also gone. People are mean. And to make it worse I think these internet thieves target us money hungry vulnerable college students. Be careful people.

Front Row Green Monster

Well, my name is Lizz. I'm from Falmouth, Mass and I'm a senior here at Plymouth. I transferred here two years ago (my Junior year) from UMass Amherst. I plan to graduate this May, have a wild summer, and then hopefully this Fall I will be shipped off to somewhere in the United States with the AmeriCorps. For those of you who don't know, AmeriCorps is the same thing as the PeaceCorps, only that it's in America and it's only one year rather than two.

After that I want to get my STCW (Standards of Training, Certification & Watchkeeping) and work on a private yacht in the caribbean for a few years.

I looooove the red sox ...I spend most of my money on tickets. Besides going to games I love going to the beach, sailing, boating, (anything related to the ocean), my friends, snowboarding, golf, paaaahtyin wicked haaaad, my dog, buffalo wings, mowing lawns, and airplanes ...just to name a few.
