The Team That's in Last Place Twice

Well, it's official. The Boston Red Sox have eaten the Baltimore Orioles. And grown to twice their original size. And despite this, they still suck. Twice.


Over the next few days, expect some stuff to go up from my California trip. Or maybe not. It's something I'm seriously considering at this point, but I make no promises. It all depends whether I spend from now until Thursday, when I leave for Maine, watching TV in front of my computer, or watching TV in a half-passed out state on the couch. Decisions, decisions.

Gus Johnson and Bill Raftery's WASPy Love-Child


But that's not the best part. The best part is that from 2000-2005, this guy taught at my school. He was a history teacher and a lacrosse coach. Then he got fired. So what did he do to get canned?

John Tortorella Does Not Like Cell Phones

My second day back on the "job" and I get this? Thanks, Torts. You're awesome.

I'd also like to see DJ Steve Porter remix this press conference. He could just add it to the end of the one he's already got. And maybe add an L to that TV content rating.

Act III, Scene I

Last night, I made a promise.

I promised a small handful of people I know that if the New York Rangers, a team that has disappointed me since I was a young, but not so small, child could advance to the NHL Conference Finals, I would once again begin posting on the Couchwarmers. Little did they know that this was an empty promise. You see, win or lose, I was planning on a Couchwarmers one-month reunion tour. But now that the Rangers have advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals, at least I'm significantly happier than I would have been otherwise. Plus, now I come off as being trustworthy. All of you are sheep.

Last week, I finished my final semester of grad school classroom work. In about a month from now, I head up to Maine for my summer counselor job. Between now and then, I head to California on a ten-day road trip. If there was ever a time to fire this thing back up, it's now. So to reward all of you still-loyal readers, the Couchwarmers is back for a one-month run. Or maybe are back. Is this thing still plural? Whatever. We're back. Rejoice. Go riot in the streets.
