Wine and Baseball

I really don't know what the fuck that thing is in the picture, but it looks as though the Tin Man boinked a wine bottle and I decided to post the end result. However, I write to you tonight in sheer bliss.

I get home, and after mowing the lawn, take a nice warm shower, hit the kitchen for some sweet meatloaf and broccoli, watch yet more episodes of "Entourage," then saddle up with a Barefoot Chardonnay (I'm a beer guy, but for some reason I craved a little white wine for the evening) for the Cubs and Cardinals on the four-letter network, deuce edition.

So, there I sit...sipping on vino and watching the Cubs rally in their half of the fifth inning to the tune of a 6-1 lead over the Satanic Fowl. Genius LaRussa's only answer is to sit in the corner of the dugout with those sweet Blueblockers on and scratch his left asscheek trying to trigger thoughts from the right side of his brain. Anywho, the night couldn't be better...the Cubs are leading the Cards 6-1 in the 6th and there's a great lightning show going on outside to cap it all off. Here's to the Cubs putting the finishing touches on the Cards tonight.

By the way, baseball's equivalent of the largest cocktease on the planet has been lights out in Single A ball, and with some luck and a few "Hail Mary's," the K-Kid could be up as early as next week. For one thing, I think he all but deserves it. It's been nothing but a crap shoot being Kerry Wood in a Cubs uniform, and though it's the only uniform he's ever known as a Major Leaguer, I hope he finally finds a healthy groove and can get back to this team and guide the bullpen to the postseason....and, maybe...just maybe...some October festivities. Football, be prepared to take a backseat if the Cubs make the Series. It could be one of the signs of the Apocolypse. It'd be a good trade.

Hug It Out, You Little Bitches

My laziness hasn't been fruitless...the little lady and I have been spending a lot of our free time catching up on the first three seasons of HBO's "Entourage." We picked up the show in the latter stages of the third season and were immediately hooked. For me, it was looking at Eric's ex-girlfriend, Sloan. To quote a good friend of mine, "wow-wah-wee-wah!" Oh, yeah...I would.

But, more importantly, the show is just plain good. I don't have to tell that to you, because any human worth his salt knows that HBO is the Mecca of good television. Everything else is just plain bad. I've always been a fan of TV...but, now...HBO has spoiled me. I know, there are such shows as CBS's "The Unit" and some little peice of shit show called "24" on FOX.

Back to "Entourage." Arguably one of the shows most intriguing and fun characters to watch (beside Drama, of course) is Ari Gold's assistant, Lloyd the Gay. That's not his official title or anything, but if the shoe fits...

The show's characters interact very well with one another onscreen, from Turtle's blatant Drama-bashings to E's subtle "yeah, rights." The chemistry onscreen must be due to the sheer fun the cast must have...I bet those guys are living large out there, and watching them do so on the TV screen keeps me coming back for more. If you don't have HBO, spring for the extra $10 package from your local cable affiliate, or hit up ebay for each season's DVDs.

So, there you have it. I haven't just been sitting on the couch picking lint out of my belly button, I've been sitting on the couch picking lint out of my belly button while watching "Entourage." VICTORY!!!

MENTAL NOTE: I'll try to post more often. I've said it before, but I think that the demand for this blog has been overwhelming. I'll do my best to appease all four of you. In that light, expect more than just baseball talk. Maybe a few movie reviews...maybe a few hot chick reviews...maybe some beer reviews. Who knows...however, the majority of the content on this site will remain sports related, specifically on the Cubs, Saints and LSU athletics. Keep reading...and leave comments, damn it. How else am I supposed to know that I rock the camel's ass?

From the TDIH Newsroom...

Well, it seems that I've been away for quite some time. That's not true...I hadn't gone anywhere, I've just blatantly abandoned the site. Shame one me...and, shame on you for wanting more. You know who you are. Anyway, as if the interweb wasn't clogged with useless nonsense from know-it-alls of all walks of life and Al Gore, TDIH will resume it's regularly scheduled broadcasts attempt a comeback of higher frequency posts, shorter, quippier dialogue, and tons and tons of poo jokes. Hey, America asked for it.
