Sorry for yesterday, my dog was missing and I spent most of the day looking for her. On with the news.
Luckily for the American people, President Obama sat down and had a beer with Sgt. James Crowley, Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Vice President Joe Biden. You'll remember Crowley was the officer who arrested Gates outside of his home after a burglar had been reported in the neighborhood. The whole thing was a misunderstanding, but fortunately the President of the United States of America was there to smooth everything over. Halleluja
You know instead of worrying about 2 men with hurt feelings the President could look at his new "Cash for Clunkers" law that went into effect last week and is already on the fritz. After less than a week, the government is worried the $1 billion set aside might already be used up. Maybe, just maybe, the entire American economy is more important than 2 people feeling slighted in some way. Call me crazy.
You know something else we should be worried about? Tigers. A tiger in Las Vegas escaped last night from the Fernando's Brothers magic act and was found in a residents backyard. Tigers in backyards...classic. Hangover pt. 2
The story is troubling to say the least. EMT's in Nebraska and Iowa are trying to figure out new ways to transport their cargo. The reason they have to be creative is because patients are weighing in at over 800 lbs. I have no comment on this sitaution, just that it's ludacris.
In the sports world, I'm sure everyone has heard by now but I still want to blog about it. Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz, both integral parts of the Red Sox dynasty have been named on the 2003 steroid list by MLB Player Association. Ramirez was already suspected as having used steroids and was banned for 50 games earlier this year. However, Ortiz was thought to be the good guy and a not a rule-breaker. Ortiz said it was a surprise to him that he was on the list. Really?! I'm pretty sure they told everyone who was on the list as soon as they got the results. Also, a guy who was released by the Twins and then all of a sudden becomes the best clutch performer in baseball and no one had any idea, especially him? That's why no one likes the Sox, except for people who live on the Cape and eat chowda... and BJ Rushing.
It's also been reported that Chipper Jones and Brian McCann were seen together at the Carousel in Knoxville, TN.
On a final note, Catie Colgan is moving to South Korea to teach English. There will be a going-away party for Catie tonight in Nashville and if you need directions call John McClure(even if you don't need directions, call and annoy him). I'd like to wish Catie good luck and safe travel while in Korea. Hopefully everyone can make it to the party and if not, then you're a bad friend.
