I don’t celebrate Christmas, but I did get a Mini-Non-Denominational Thing That Grows for my desk because I am a sucker for sparkly trees. And it sheds. Everywhere. All the time. Why did nobody warn me about this occupational hazard of Mini-Non-Denominational Things That Grow?
Anyway, the only noteworthy thing I’ve found on the baseball news front these past few days is that Alex Rodriguez is spending the holidays in Los Cabos with Cameron Diaz (can we call them Cam-Rod?). Which is, of course, very noteworthy. Not. Hey, GMs, please make something interesting happen. Diamond Girl is turning into TMZ 2.0.
And Joe Martinez was designated for assignment by the Pirates. Not good news at all. Since Sabean is into the whole rejects and cast-offs thing, maybe he could re-sign Joey? I’ll make him a baseball shaped carrot cake with wicked good cream cheese frosting if he does it. Same goes for you, Doug Melvin and Jon Daniels. Your carrot cake is waiting.
Good luck to all braving the stores for last minute shopping today. I braved the Apple store yesterday because my iPod Touch was moving by itself. The geniuses at the Genius Bar said it was hypersensitive and gave me a new one. I think it was haunted. So far the new one is being normal, but I’m keeping my distance. Freaky iPods are… you know, freaky.
Feliz Navidad and Joyeux Noël, y’all.
