I’m about to teach part of a class this morning, so let me give you two things to discuss in my absence:
1) First, last night the rumor that the Cubs are kicking the tires on Bronson Arroyo landed in my inbox. Make of that what you will. Are they Cubs serious about adding him? Are they trying to put pressure on Samardzija? Is the rumor a red herring? Who knows. But one thing is for sure: That would be a whole lot of hair on one team.
2) I’m very much enjoying the tweets coming back from Sochi. So far, this is my favorite:
This just after we got the news that Sochi was planning to round up and murder all the stray dogs they could get their hands on. Please draw your own conclusions. And while I feel terrible for the reporters and athletes who have to endure these shitty games and the Russian people who got completely rooked in having to pay (at an obscene markup) for this thing, I continue to be highly entertained by how shitty everything in Sochi seems to be. #SoShit? Ideed.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you really should read this.
Back later. Talk amongst yourselves.
