Where to begin?
- Friday, I hear the news that the Mayor died. Sucks. Expected, but it still sucks.
- Sunday brings word that Benny is now sidelined with appendicitis and is likely to miss the first two games. Great.
- And then Monday, CRIKEY!, awesome hyperactive dude Steve Irwin gets his heart ripped into by a stingray of all things.
I don’t even know what to say to all of that. I’ve no great fitting words about the Mayor. As I’ve said before, I’ve met him several times, I liked him, and I think it bites that he died. I’m a little dumbfounded that it appears that Lukey will be Mayor until 2009.
As for Benny? I want to have faith in Charlie Batch, but I don’t have faith in Charlie Batch. This may be a game I have to watch through the comfort of the holes in an afghan.
Steve Irwin. WTF? I bet NO ONE had him next in their celebrity death pool at work.
