When I think of John Francis “Jack” Buck (August 21, 1924 – June 18, 2002) and Darryl Andrew Kile (December 2, 1968 – June 22, 2002), words fail me.  My brain works at creating spontaneous thoughts, but the signals that tell the rest of my body how to operate fail after the one that first [...]

Sure, I imagine most Cardinal fans want the team to win just about every game they watch.  Heck, they may want them to win every single game they watch.  If you expect either to happen, then you are indeed a fool, and a fool and the team’s bandwagon are soon parted.  Games like the one [...]

Based on the descriptions alone, the Waino in a shower ad probably had the most buzz, but the naked Fredbird under a towel was probably enough to kill that buzz.  Vote anyway, though. If you haven’t seen all the commercials, just click here.  Remember to return to PH8 to vote, though. Also, vote. Follow gr33nazn [...]
