Okay, look: of all the dumb internet things I’ve done, this is admittedly the dumbest, so no obligation to even pretend to think it’s funny:  Terrence Howard Reminders (Daily Whale followers will have noticed the cross-promotion today).

holy crap, dainius Zubrus is still around. (and he’s only 33??) Why does it seem like hockey players age in slow motion?

Dawkins ovation disappointingly tepid. Although I did stand within about 4 feet of him as he sat to record a spot for the radio pregame.

Probably it’s acceptable to wear a Dawkins jersey to the Phils game tonight since he’s throwing out the first pitch, right?

the only good playoff outcome for the sixers is a sweep.

now to find out who all these new Eagles guys are so I can pretend to know what I’m talking about.

final student conference of the semester complete. On my way to final class of the semester. Feeling pretty okay.

I’m trying to envision a scenario that would involve me standing behind a presidential candidate during a rally and clutching a campaign sign, and I can’t think of any way that would ever happen.

Book Fight is now available in the Itunes store– downloads from there will be helpful, but if you get a minute also maybe think about rating it and posting a review?

watching a dog who wears a size 28 belt as a collar. He gets lazier every summer, which makes this job easier every summer. By next year I might have to brew him coffee just to get him out of bed in the morning.

Larry Andersen yelling at the Phillies to appeal a call

Reaing pretty much not a disaster, sold three books, disgusted no one.

The waiting.

Headed to south st to read from my new book, which was just good enough for my agent to sever ties with me.   so, disaster potential.

Teaching breakthrough: I’ve reached the point where my students feel okay telling me about all of their illegal drug ezperience

Eagles on the verge of giving away Asante Samuel because he’s unhappy. Samuel is unhappy because they acquired two guys to replace him last year. Both replacements were noticeably worse than him last year. Eagles prepared to make trade for 6th rounder anyway, because they’ve backed themselves into a corner (no pun) and have no choice. This is what you call bad management.

morning depression: driving into work, saw a dog (a chihuahua, maybe?) lying in the right lane, having been hit by a car. On the shoulder, another small dog, frantic, trying to dart into the road to check on its companion, narrowly avoiding cars itself.
Pulled over, called 911, will never know what happened next.
