1. I am suddenly on like a 90’s kick or something. Maybe late 80’s/early 90’s. I don’t know.
All I know is that I have season-passed Pop Up Video on VH1 Classic (Danger Zone! Kenny Loggins!), have found myself really enjoying the hell out of some Wham! songs on 92.9 (WTF, I know), and this afternoon, I caught a Savage Garden song on the radio and was tearing down the Parkway all, “TRULY, MADLY, DEEPLY DO-OOO!”
I also have the sudden urge to watch, Girls Just Want to Have Fun (“Eat flame, Bozo!”).
Am I having a crisis?
2. Here’s a tip. Don’t drink and play chess because you might whip out a gun or something.
Chess. Violence. WHO KNEW?
Maybe they were upset about Bobby Fischer dying?
3. Troysus backed out of the Pro Bowl. Meh. My passion for Troysus is at an all-time low. Thank God I never self-united to him.
4. So there’s this whole brouhaha between Hines and The Duke of Fug and the Earl of Gross (man, it feels good to type his full name out occasionally) because Benny said he wanted a tall receiver in the draft and also said that Hines is lying about his height.
Anyway, Hines said:
“All these other guys are playing 12, 13 years and still going strong. Why can they go strong and ‘Hines Ward will be the one to fall off.’ I never could fathom that. There will always be question marks around me because I’m not the prototypical guy, not flashy. But I’ve shown you what I can do when they pass the ball.”
Who are these people throwing giant punctuation at Hines Ward? I think they live in Hines Ward’s head.
Also, Hines, calm the heck down. The Rooney’s and Tomlin don’t give a rat’s ass what Benny wants. If they did, Alan Faneca would be signed and Russ Grimm would be coach.

5. That third picture in particular? My nightmare. Alive on Earth. Waking up in your own bed with a pigeon sitting on your shoulder. Satan couldn’t script that any better.
6. I am not a cat person. But I would SO be this cat’s person. (h/t Amber)
7. “… yeah, so shoot me an email if you want to hang. Also, THIS picture should just about make you hot for me. BAM!”
