Where's A-Roid?

Already, a week of baseball has passed and I missed my imaginary deadline as an imaginary sportswriter. I suppose I should hold off on the paperwork to get my name legally changed to Scoop. I'm failing already.

However, for both of you who have subscribed as readers of my blog---already my sports column is going the way of newspapers everywhere---here is a bullet-list (in the vein of The Providence Journal sportswriter Bill Reynolds) of my impressions, thoughts, and my intellectually vacuous and retarded commentary on Week One.

  • Where's A-Roid? Has anyone seen A-Roid?
  • I didn't think it would be possible to miss Julio Lugo, but given Lowrie's performance at the plate so far, I can't wait for the ugly bastard to get back.
  • I've always said that only assholes and rednecks use their initials in place of their first name. I believe that puts $160 million dollar C.C. Sabathia in the latter column. What does C.C. stand for anyway? I'm pretty sure it's Cheeseburgers and Chicken Wings.
  • R.I.P. Nick Adelhart.
  • My Yankee rants my soon become archaic, seeing I'd bet the house on Tampa to win The AL East again. After watching them play that first series, they're the real deal. Stacked. Evan Longoria might be the best player in the game. No joke.
  • Where's A-Roid? I haven't seen him around.
  • As far as the greatest rock and roll song ever written, I'd agree with my friend Cracker: it's "Thunder Road."
  • C.C.=Chili fries and Cheesecake.
  • Yesterday, while listening to the color commentator Eric Karros on Fox's Saturday baseball, it became apparent that any monkey with a microphone could get that job. While he tried to get all philosophical and metaphysical about Nick Adelhart's death, I felt pangs of vicarious embarrassment. Settle down, Socrates. But then he followed it with some illuminating baseball insight, such as "pitchers don't want to walk the lead-off hitter." Wow. No shit.
  • I love watching Jason Bay play the game. Since Manny the Moron left town, I haven't spent a minute missing him. Honest.
  • I've had the same essential haircut my entire life. That doesn't mean it's working for me.
  • Best Easter joke I heard this week: What did the egg say to the boiling water? I'm sorry, I can't get hard. I was just laid by a chick.
  • A-Roid, oh A-roid, wherefore art thou A-Roid?
  • It seems every year more and more douche bags become Sox fans. Where were these assholes in 1996? Actually, I know the answer: Not at Fenway.
  • Look for me on Facebook, folks. I'm a total Facebook whore.
  • Seriously, has anyone seen A-Roid?

EDIT: I had a picture of A-Roid, but it got taken down by Big Brother of The Blog World. Next week, I promise nude photos of MILF's and the men who love them.

Jesus Christ, Nate. I thought we had a chance to be friends, and now I find out you're a member of Red Sox Nation?

I was born in Elmira NY--what do you suppose that makes me?

Yanks fan since 1969--

It's all right, Rusty. I've befriended many Yankee fans and once lived with a guy who was a Yanks fans. It's makes for more spirited beer-drinking during games.

Now, if you go and tell me you're a Republican and a financial supporter of Sarah Palin's 2012 campaign, too, we might have some issues.

How about my boys up north in Seattle? 7-2? It's early, but I haven't been this excited to be an M's fan in years.
