Tell me which Democratic presidential candidate you’re voting for and I can tell you the domain of your email provider

Whilst pondering this evening’s Iowa caucuses I devised my favorite tweet in a very long time. If you tell me you're voting for Biden I will know for a fact you have a Comcast email address. — Scott Colby (@ColbyKnowsBest) February 4, 2020 https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js When I finished chuckling at my own wit I realized IContinue reading “Tell me which Democratic presidential candidate you’re voting for and I can tell you the domain of your email provider”

Cheaters usually prosper

As expected, Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred came down hard on the Houston Astros for their camera and trash can based sign stealing during the 2017 season. General manager Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch were both suspended from the game for a year, and the Astros themselves were fined and stripped of severalContinue reading “Cheaters usually prosper”

Grandma Tessie’s homestyle peanut butter and jelly sandwich recipe

Few sandwiches are more satisfying than the good ol’ PB & J. Whether it’s packed for a picnic, taken along to work, or just enjoyed at home, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich is an All-American comfort food that hits the spot in any situation! My favorite version of this scrumptiously simple sandwich has beenContinue reading “Grandma Tessie’s homestyle peanut butter and jelly sandwich recipe”

I enjoyed Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker…but that trilogy stinks

I don’t expect much from modern Star Wars movies. Give me some fun Jedi shit, a few neat spaceships, and a couple interesting new creatures and generally keep things moving I’ll gladly fork over $15 and a couple hours of my time. That’s why I think Rise of Skywalker is the best Star Wars movieContinue reading “I enjoyed Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker…but that trilogy stinks”

When I’m elected president

When I’m elected president, I promise to battle for more accurate cup measurements on coffee carafes. Hardworking Americans should not have to suffer through the vile lies of Mr. Coffees that promise six cups and then spit out a measly two and change. I shall solve our tight napkin holder crisis on day one ofContinue reading “When I’m elected president”

I did not enjoy Uncut Gems

I went into Uncut Gems knowing next to nothing about it, other than that Adam Sandler is prominently involved and that the movie’s generating a bit of Oscar buzz. I left questioning every positive thought I’ve ever had toward film critics. Spoiler alert, by the way. Uncut Gems is an ugly, abrasive, senseless waste ofContinue reading “I did not enjoy Uncut Gems”

Stupid Amazon Ring conspiracy theory

I chuckle like an idiot whenever I hear some newscaster use the term “porch pirates.” It always makes me picture Jack Sparrow swinging onto someone’s front stoop to snag a box of freshly delivered goodies. In reality, it’s always just some disappointment in a cheap hoodie. That makes me sad. Such a news report, spicedContinue reading “Stupid Amazon Ring conspiracy theory”

Sox add Peraza, Perez, Arauz; Porcello joins the Mets

It’s still way too early (and the budget is still far too constrained) to really judge the effectiveness of new Red Sox Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom, but a small flurry of moves this week could provide some insight into how the team’s baseball ops crew is going to evaluate players going forward. Each ofContinue reading “Sox add Peraza, Perez, Arauz; Porcello joins the Mets”

Scott vs. the NFL

My legions of loyal blogonauts will surely recognize this topic, but whereas I am badly out of blogging practice I thought it wise to launch my latest attempt to scream into the dark bowels of the internet in desperate hope of being heard with an oldie but a goodie. There was time not long agoContinue reading “Scott vs. the NFL”
