Is it blasphemous to refer to the Celtics, Bruins & Red Sox as the Holy Trinity, especially the day after Easter? Well those three are a combined 12-0 so trust me it is tempting. As a result, these links promise to be fun, and not all depressing.
So I could give a crap, but I’m pandering to the (female) masses here…a schedule for what to watch on this Royal Wedding Week.
Something tells me Ference didn’t mind opening his wallet for $2,500. Im sure he thinks it was worth….especially since he’ll get over $10,000 worth of alcohol bought for him in Boston bars.
Um, this is perfect. Probably not completely safe for work.
This movie looks kind of Catcher in the Rye-ish, kind of sweet, kind of predictable, but whatever.

I was in Boston yesterday watching my sister run the marathon. It was amazing. Between her finishing in an unbelievably great time, getting to experience the city on Marathon Monday and cheering for so long that my voice was horse and my son was telling me to be quiet, I had an unforgettable weekend. I was also not near my computer, so I’m posting a day late.
Here is a really great article about how even though one might aspire to be well read, well listened, etc., there just isn’t enough time to digest all that is being produced.
Evian’s new ad is pretty cool.
Every single Jeopardy skit done by SNL.

It’s Marathon Monday…and you know what that means! Nothing really, besides me watching the Red Sox game at 11 before I get my day started.
Here is short video for those wanting a Boston Marathon course preview.
Lets hope the marathon doesn’t end in this fashion. Effing Junior.
Can someone confirm that when I hear this crap it is actually true and not just extreme Left Wing fodder?

I know, even as I’m writing this title much less the post, that Jeremy is going to have a field day with me on this one. And I also realize that I’m going to sound like I’m 90 years old, but I wanted to ask those of you who are out and about around children to refrain from dropping f bombs and referring to women as c u next tuesdays and regaling your companion about sh*t storms and mother f’ers and whatnot.
It’s not that I want to limit your free speech, even though that is what I’m asking, but my little man, my little six year old who hears everything I don’t want him to but can’t hear me ask him to bring his plate to the sink, he hears what you’re saying. And I have this fear that he’ll hear you talking in the grocery store parking lot (and I’m sorry if you had a terrible horrible no good very bad day and were just lamenting the fact on the phone in the most passionate and descriptive way you could come up with on the spot) and start using those words which I think we can all agree would just be really inappropriate. Before we encountered you, the most terrible word he knew was poop. And I kind of liked that. He knew I wasn’t a fan of “hate” or “can’t” or “fat”, but now we have a whole new list of words to add to that list, and possibly, though I hope this isn’t the case, to explain.
And yes, I have sworn in front of him, so I’m not free of guilt here and I understand the occasional slip. It’s more the constant stream of swears that you were unleashing in a really public place probably unaware of all of us around you who were suddenly included in your phone call.
I understand the feeling of a good f bomb when you’re pissed off, or feel a sharp and unexpected pain. I get how nicely those four letter words roll of the tongue. How good it can feel to utter the right swear at the right time. All I’m asking is that you do it when there are little ones, ie: that little guy with the wide eyes staring at you and taking in your fervency, aren’t within hearing distance.

I was going to tear you to pieces about this post, then I watched this youtube clip, and realized I wouldn’t want my kid turning out like this either.
Um, yeah…I think that’s pretty much it from me. Seriously. Watch your language around kids.
Or, do not place them in situations where you know they might hear bad language. You know, perhaps you have certain acquaintances (who may or may not have an extremely similar sounding name to your) that use terrible language frequently. Maybe make sure your kid realizes that person is not someone whom he/she should emulate.
That’s it. I’m done.

posted … Tuesday night.
I have been so caught up with sports and watching sports and hearing about sports that I haven’t had time to watch the second episode, but Jeremy told me about this awesome new show called The Killing. The pilot and first season were impressive and I’m looking forward to securing some couch time to watch the second episode sometime soon. Maybe in a few months after the NHL playoffs.
After spending the week (yes, when the person you live with is putting together a pool it’s at least a week long event) talking about and watching the Masters, this Bill Simmons article was one of the best things I’ve read in a long time. I think I would have been as impressed even if my week hadn’t revolved around the Masters.
Also, as a side note, my big sister is running the Boston Marathon Monday morning. This Bill Simmons article about the event is also one of my favorites.
This is getting a ton of attention of late, but in case you haven’t seen it, check out chicks with Steve Buscemeyes.
Another dating website. I think this one is a really good idea for Jeremy because it’s based on music taste. I wonder if they have a filter for Red Sox fans.
