Every song, by every band, on every album, from every country, should be available to me to purchase individually on the Internet. No "album only" crap, no songs that aren't available to me because I live in America, no artists that don't want me picking and choosing my favorite songs, no studios not putting obscure artists online because it's not cost effective.

Just give me what I want, and no one will get hurt.

Please, no

I really hope we're not headed to several years worth of Red Wings-Penguins Stanley Cup Finals. It might be great for the NHL, but I just have no interest in seeing it. Not the first time, not this time, not any future times.

Why bother?

I don't know why companies like New Era and Zephyr even bother with making non-fitted baseball caps. I hate velcro hats. I hate hats with the plastic stuff (those knobs break off so easily when you slam your hat down in anger). I hate those little adjustable buckles on hats too.

I'll gladly pay the extra money for a fitted hat.

Oh, and don't use black for the under-bill color. That just doesn't look right.

10 Things I Hate About You. The Series.

Heath Ledger must be rolling in his grave... I know I would...

Don't do me like that...

9 home runs and it's still May? 9 home runs in only 21 games? 9 home runs, after a kindey blockage and back problems since the end of the 2008 season?

God, please don't tease me... But can this really be true?

Look, I had my doubts about Joe Mauer ever since he became Minnesota's starting catcher. I loved A. J. Pierzynski. He was clutch. I hated to see him go to San Francisco. And I thought too many people in the Upper Midwest were doting on Joe because he was a local boy. Overestimated. Practically treating him like a savior. Bringing Joe up, in Spring Training, with no one behind him, was a mistake. Those concerns became much greater when Mauer was hurt in the 2nd game of the 2004 season and again later that same summer.

Even if Joe finishes with only 30 home runs this year (and remain healthy the whole time)... I'll take back everything I said about this guy. I just don't want to get my hopes up; I've been disappointed by too many men before him.

Another golden opportunity lost...

I've always said that Major League Baseball lost a great marketing opportunity in 2003...

OK, I've never said that, but I've always thought it.

MVP Baseball 2003 from EA Sports was a good game, mostly because of the awesome soundtrack. MLB should have taken a handful of these songs to make video montages of live-game footage to promote the league and the sport.

ArtistSong NameMontage Contents
The All-American RejectsSwing, Swinghome runs
The DonnasWho Invited Youclose plays that throw out runners
RevisCaught in the Raingame-ending celebrations
PacifierBullitproofstrikeout pitches
OK GoDon't Ask Meheated confrontations on the field
ShinedownFly From the Insidegreat diving/leaping catches

Heck, you could make a montage with any song on the list and a number of clips and it'd come out great. It'd be free money for MLB.

What a waste, what a loss...

Um, duh

Instead of trying to remove the idea ball, why didn't the staff at Family Guy just discard ALL jokes about Muhammad? The writers would stop working if idea balls were removed, not if they weren't being used. Theoretically, they wouldn't have done anything about it. Problem averted.

Wish you were here...

Fargo needs more Gopher fans. Just enough so that we (yes, we) can take over one bar in town. Where we would feel welcome. Where we can watch the U of M play on TV. Where stupid UND fans could try to brave the lions' den, only to leave wounded.

Hmmm... That voice that was talking to Kevin Costner... Maybe I should build it...
