A High-Five for the Weekend

Just a few quick thoughts before I head off to Yankee Stadium to see the current WFC in action:

Remember when I said that first-round upsets make the NHL playoffs fun to watch? Well both #1 seeds lost their first playoff game -- San Jose on a goal with 49 seconds left, and Washington in overtime. If you're not watching already, it's not too late to start.

If anyone can take the Creed song about the Marlins that we posted yesterday, turn it into an .mp3 or other iTunes playable audio file, and then send it to, we would be eternally grateful. You'll get a shout-out on the blog and/or a beer or a cookie or something.

In case you missed it, yesterday was "National High Five Day". If you missed out on the fun, don't worry. In appreciation of our readers, we at The Couchwarmers would like to extend it for one more day, just for all of you. Go nuts. And if you happen to read this late and miss out again, don't worry -- there are only about five more months until "National Slap People's Butt Day".

Most people know that fans from Philly can be crude sometimes, but the argument that comes from "civilized" Philadelphians is that the familiar stories that we all know and love are exaggerated. Then an Eric Cartman look-alike decides to intentionally vomit on an off-duty cop's children at a Phillies' game and prove us all so terribly, terribly right.

Personally, I like cilantro. But for those of you who don't, there could be a scientific explanation as to why.

Speaking of eating disgusting things, researchers are using taste aversion treatment to try to save a species of an Australian marsupial from eating things it shouldn't -- namely, poisonous toads. Next step: doing the same thing with rural bible belt town residents and double-bacon-cheeseburgers.

Thanks for sticking with us through yet another week. Here's your Friday reward video. Don't forget to check back tomorrow for the Invention Bracket Final.
