Sound Destruction: OH HAPPY DAY

OH HAPPY DAY

After a wonderful breakfast out and fall shopping with my pal Bulldog, I'm back and ready to delve into a couple of today's headlines.

Chicago White Sox - 2005 World Series Champions!



I'll admit it. I'm a bandwagon ChiSox fan. How could one not be? I mean, this team won their final eight games in a row, went 11-1 in their 12 postseason games, and last night they became just the third team in history to sweep a World Series after a season in which they were in first place every day of the season. Impressive stats yes, but what impressed me more and secured my seat on the bandwagon was their humbleness, gratitude and their genuine love of the game. But I don't think anyone's happier with their win than our blogger buddy and die-hard fan Doug. It was fun rooting along with Doug and the rest of my fellow blogger bandwagoners.

Harriet Miers Withdraws Supreme Court Nomination



Not a surprise, though I am kind of surprised it took this long. Check out Dubya's mug - not a happy camper. And check out this statement:

"Let's move on," said Republican Sen. Trent Lott of Mississippi. "In a month, who will remember the name Harriet Miers?"

For a myriad of reasons...wow.

YAYYYYYY!!!! SAR!!!! This is why I'm glad for the bandwagon. This kind of happiness ought to be shared far and wide, and you were an excellent deputy Grinder.

In a month, who will remember the Chicago White Sox? I'm kidding.

I'm glad Harriet stepped down too. I prefer my Supreme Court judges not to look like they routinely mix pain medication into the soup they feed their visitors so they don't leave without staying for a few hours first.

(Am I the only person who gets the "creepy demented lonely old lady" vibe from her? Am I?)

Doug - *high five!*

Maine - A wise guy! Nice. Yeah, she's pretty creepy. And may I say, I prefer my Supreme Court judges be just that. Experienced judges. Can't wait to see the who the next nominee is (not holding my breath).

And forgot to say congrats, doug! It's nice to see Chicago's real baseball team (and not the fraudulent one whose fans don't give a crap about the game!) win one.

about the white sox...I don't even think anyone in the tri-state area noticed but good for them.

TLM: White conservative male, huh? Cause you know there just aren't any qualified women justices (*hack hack*).

Strider: I think you're right about Miers. Shame she didn't have the decency to turn down the nomination in the first place. Bigger shame she was ever nominated. And I'm not surprised to hear that from Yankees/Mets land. Although, the Commish (fyi all, my brother-in-law in NJ and arguably the biggest all around sports nut I know) forwarded this yesterday...

World Series Trivia:

Did you know that last night the White Sox tied Bobby Brown's record by beating (Whitney) Houston four times in one week.

Thanks TLM.

Sar, that's wicked funny. And wrong. You're not right.

Wow. You elicited big reaction from Doug. Wow again

and may Harriet Miers be just the beginning.

Too scared and jaded to actually believe that indictments will be handed down, but..

Doug - Hey now, I didn't make it up, I just reitterated it. I think I liked you better when you were on your sports high. :P

Pia - I know, that was pretty cool when Doug was still riding on his sports high. Now he's back to his cynical self apparently. As for Harriet Miers, at the very least, she shocked many on the right back to reality. As for indictments? Merry Fitzmas, Pia! Oh, Wait. Eh, consider it nondenominational. ;)
