Weekly WeahsIt's that time again. Weekly Weahs, named after the great Sporlitician...
Weah to go:
1) Steve Bridges: Bush impersonator (he's on the right) upstages President at the annual Correspondents' Dinner. Highlight was futile attempt to show President how to pronounce "nuclear."
2) New Orleans Saints: All week were going to trade down because they didn't need a QB. Then the best draftee in years fell into their lap.
3) The NFL: Hours upon hours of draft coverage, complete with man-tears and terrible hair from the hosts. And still, we all watched. Cha-ching.
On the Weah down:
1) Houston Texans: It doesn't matter what you could or could not get in a trade. If you didn't want the best player in the draft, trade down. Get some extra picks. The Jets wanted Reggie; the Texans could have had the Brick, who may help faster than Mario, with that pick.
2) Anyone with a car: 60 cents in a month. Increases of 10 cents/week are now routine. When will it stop? A night of suicidal enchiladas has never caused this much gas pain.
3) Stephen Colbert: We love him, we really do. And he was hysterical at the Correspondents' Dinner last night. But he was too political in his faux right-wing act, and reporters even said it was too much. Still, it was damn funny.
The "Take That, Darwin" Award of the week:
Ofatai King. He got a crane and moved six newsstands--as in uprooted them from University City and put them down near 12th street. Moved whole newsstands. Across a major metropolitan city. With a crane.
