As you already know, this is all completely subjective and according to my whims. Let’s go!


  • Ian Stewart proved he is not an impact hitter
  • Ian Stewart proved he is not a hitter.
  • Your ideas are obviously well-thought-out.  Not sure you belong here.
  • I would love to be a fly on the wall at Brandon Phillips house- I bet he used curse words when he found out Barney gets the Gold.
  • Oh no.  Please disregard everything we say.
  • I’m just relieved you didn’t take Seymour’s advice with respect to your Halloween costume.
  • Live a little.
  • Any relation to Jeff Baker?
  • Distant cousin from a small Mediterranean island.  They shared an apartment.
  • Do Laverne and Shirley stop by?
  • They were pulling the cool Baker in a speedboat when he ski-jumped over Smarja.
  • I think I’ve identified the problem. You still get your news from the papers.
  • I understand they now allow newspapers on airplanes as well.
  • I’m outraged.  A rolled-up newspaper is nearly as lethal as a box cutter.
  • Major League Baseball continues to move toward expanding instant replay at a glacial pace.
  • After namining one of his sons Jermajesty, Jermaine Jackson should have had his naming liscense taken away.
  • Jer, Jedi, and Jermajesty Johnson.
  • Funny story–my parents almost named me Jermajesty, but then they stopped huffing paint.
  • Imagine trying to get a job interview if your name was Jermajesty Johnson…probably not going to happen.  You’d have to change it to something more professional, like Jermajusty Johnsun.
  • Do the Hanson Brothers still play for the Chiefs?
  • I think they started a band.
  • I’d need to get the prospect I think is number 4 in the system to pull the trigger at this point.
  • I’ve always had the feeling that they and Dale know what button to push to motivate Sori.


  • Now that the 2012 season is officially over (remind me to send God a thank you note on that)


  • Congragulations to jswanson, the Most Valuable Lizzie’er this time around!
