I've Got Nothing

Really, nothing at all.

Saw snippets of the game (including Lind's homer; he's now hitting .346 with 22 RBI in his last 22 games) before heading out to the pictures. The Dark Knight was, predictably, sold out, so we ended up at the late late showing of Wanted. Now, I have a pretty eclectic taste in film and was familiar with Timur Bekmambetov's work (a pair of visually impressive Russian vampire flicks with really weak story lines), so I knew what we were getting into. I admit to being entertained; generally speaking anything that exposes the tortured Russian psyche usually draws me in.

On a totally unrelated note, it would seem as though most JaysTalk callers are deliberately out to enrage Mr Mike Wilner, who we refer to as "The Oracle" around these parts. This is the list of sore spots, repeated as naseum:

* asking "how are you?"
* ____ is a .500 pitcher
* clutch hitting
* Scott Rollins
* attacks on JP's draft record
* attacks on AJ Burnett
* demanding more bunting
* " " small ball
* " that we blow 'this thing' up

If you are indeed one of our regular readers it's likely that you are a level-headed, handsome individual capable of expressing yourself rationally and logically without touching on any of the aforementioned Winer sore spots. If you happen to be one of the chuckleheads who does call in to harp on the same tired and wrong-headed arguments, then... I salute your tenacity? Really, we need these guys, the show wouldn't be half as entertaining without them.

Was at the game on Monday sitting in left and you would not believe the heckling of Lind. All really stupid (like "Nice going, Lind" in response to a base hit to the opposite field), but it is awesome to see him doing well in response to the jackasses.

Also, for what it's worth, the O's fans around me were some of the dumbest people I've ever heard. Aside from nonsensical jeers, half of them left while the game was still tied. WTF?
