Man Alive! I have no creative energy. I've been having a hard time coming up with original ideas for posts around here. For that I apologize, but the show must go on.

So, I figured I would go with a disjointed stream of consciousness post:

Joe Aiello of View From the Bleachers went to see the Diamond Jaxx, if you haven't seen it yet, go check it out.

Alex Ciepley writes something that I can only describe as disturbing... but worth your time to see. Facial hair was never better analyzed. Its one of those things that could have only been published on a blog.

The Blog of My Enemy is my Compatriot: The big Red Sox series is starting today... and I'm already tired of thinking about all the media hubbub we're going to have to listen to. Here's hoping Len & Bob don't think they have to compete with ESPN for the most BS-in-a-telecast award. Anyhow, check out these Red Sox Blogs for a view from the enemy.

I normally stick to baseball, but Jay Mariotti and Jerry Reinsdorf are having a pissing match.

Excerpt from: Reinsdorf rips Mariotti's 'lies' in column
by: Teddy Greenstein, Chicago Tribune, June 8, 2005

"I could care less if Jay Mariotti doesn't like me if he tells the truth," Reinsdorf said. "If he wants to say I'm dumb, he's got a pretty good case he can make for that. But when he starts to lie, I find it very, very offensive."

Mariotti, reached late Wednesday, said he used information "provided by my newspaper" and said Reinsdorf will "be hearing from my lawyer."

Who would you hope wins that suit? Both guys have serious PR problems and are about as cuddly as a cactus. For my money though, I'll be rooting for the Chairman.

Finally, on my recent visit to Wrigley, I acquired my 2005 Chicago Cubs Media Guide. It sure is a shame that they are not available online. Anyhow, I'm going to attempt to include trivia nuggets with most of my posts for the rest of the season.

Chicago Cubs Media Guide Trivia Nugget of the Day:
Page 260: "The Late Show" - On April 30, 1998, the Cubs' Wrigley Field night affair against St. Louis did not begin until 9:17 p.m. due to a lengthy rain delay — the latest starting time in Wrigley Field history. The contest ended at 12:15 a.m. — on May 1.
