One lonely Beastie I be. All by myself without nobody.

Quick Hitters and Random Thoughts

--I expect to see Coach Taylor to make fun of this when his wife suggests it next season on Friday Night Lights. But Southlake Carroll is going to start offering sushi at their games.

--I'd prefer it if Food Network would just show old Good Eats or Dinner: Impossibles or DDDs as opposed to some of their new series. For example, I don't think I'm gonna feel the need to watch Eat the Clock as FN gets in on competitive eating. It'll mix that appetizing subject with some type of travelling aspect.

--The Banana Splits: The Next Generation?!

--New Heroes trailer.

--Shawn Johnson may not have won individual all-around gold or become the next Mary Lou. But Shawn is the one and only one who was immortalized in butter as a statue in her home state of Iowa.

--Is rhythmic gymnastics going to be as much fun as the gymnastics we're now done with?

--Michael Johnson can shut the hell up about now. He started jabbering about "Usain Bolt and how it's all about him right now." He even went so far as to say, "Michael who?" American on American jealousy, really cool Michael. What are you from Dallas? Oh, well that explains it. Jennifer Yopez (thanks WWTDD) according to a Good Morning America source after she was on said J-Lo “couldn’t understand why everyone is talking about that swimmer. She couldn’t come up with (eight-time gold-medal winner Michael) Phelps’ name, and then she yammered on about how she was the one training for a triathlon just six months after giving birth, and how that was the big story right now, not ‘the swimmer.’”

--Until last Saturday night NBC hadn't hit 30 million viewers since 1990 for an Empty Nest episode?!

--Darryl, Darryl, Darryl. C'mon we already saw what happened to Ryan when he got mixed up in drugs and now you get busted for possession of X and meth? Who's gonna run the warehouse? What about the band? Kelly?
And how did I not know that Jenna Fischer tried out for Sydney Bristow on Alias?

--The Gay Icon Award was handed out and despite my penchant for recording and watching the Opening Ceremonies and propensity for filling sourdough bowls with clam chowder, I didn't make the list. only picks the best of the best. And checking in at the top spot was Cristiano Ronaldo. This might be a gay (NTTAWWT) list if Kylie Minogue is # 2 and Judy Garland is # 3. Elton John and Liza Minneli (killed on Arrested Development by the way) round out the top five. The Village People at 6 followed by David Beckham and George Michael (not the one from Arrested Development). John Barrowman and Paul O'Grady round out the list.
Ronaldo's life is a good life.

--You now have two reasons to watch Louisville football this season. One is QB Hunter Cantwell who noodles (Creed in beach episode of Office) and enjoys the life of a froggigger. Another is RB/FB Brock Bolen who is being compared to Brian Leonard. Brock has as a BMFD. A Bad Mother F'n Dad. Let's just use the description of Mr. Bolen from Brian Bennett's Big East blog on "Their patriarch is a former Green Beret who once worked as a bounty hunter in Africa and later served as Hustler publisher Larry Flynt's personal valet. Jim Bolen has been in more fistfights than he can remember, was busted by the feds on an international gun-running charge and got rich as a self-made businessman before losing most of his savings when the housing bubble burst."

--No watches their sport, but they'd watch their chicks. Jarret Stoll engaged to Rachel Hunter, Dan Hinote engaged to Amy McCarthy (Jenny's sister) and Hilary Duff to Mike Comrie.

--Our Drunk O' the Week is Kevin Grady, a junior RB at Michigan, who may or may not (who are we kidding, if he's good, he'll be back) play there again. Seems he enjoyed a little drinky drinky back in early July. He blew a .281 which is just a bit on the high side. Of course, cops had to wake him up in order for him to take a breathalyzer seeing as he was asleep at the wheel with the car running. Grady told the officer that he had just "a couple of shots." In his report the officer stated that Grady was asked to recite the alphabet and he came up with "O, R, S, J, L, P." Seriously, when the officer asked for Grady to recite a number from 12-14, Grady answered "15." That's pretty f'n drunk, but wait there's more. Grady was asked whether Mickey Mouse is a dog or a cat and Grady answered "dog." Yeah, Mickey Mouse is a Dog Drunk is a drunk I hope to achieve sometime while having a designated driver.

--Congratulations to the Torrington Board of Approved Baseball Umpires in Connecticut. The board looked past the four years in prison and 35 years probation Tom Barbero was sentenced to back in 2000 for allegedly sexual assaulting teenage boys in order to honor Mr. Barbero with a lifetime achievement award. The board knew it was honoring a child sex offender, but said the guy deserved the honor. Mr. Barbero probably laughed at that joke, what's the best thing about showering with a 16-year-old girl? Once her hair is wet she looks 14. Jerk.

--Maybe you'll be excited about this, but I'm of the Who The Hell Cares? opinion regarding a Guns N' Roses new album possibly in negotiations to finally be released in some exclusive way like Wal-Mart or Best Buy. Either way it's not coming out in 1995 or 6 or 7 or 8 and that's when it woulda been news.

--Dan Henderson and Rousimar Palhares at UFC 88?! Out-freakin-standing!

--Boys, be aware out there of WAFS. WomenAgainstFantasySports has been formed and we're in their sights.

--Remember when Nike made good commercials?

--Another reason no one, I mean NO ONE, goes to It had Shane Battier and Yao Ming as two of the five most overrated players in the NBA. D-Wade was on the list as well.

--Three times in a week a glass pane has fallen off a NYC skyscraper. That's reassuring.

--MTV is going to strikethrough ruin remake The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

--Dexter Season 2 is out this week and that's a very, very good thing.
