Spring Training Crap

I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown
The dream is gone

-Anna Nicole’s Death

CNN had live coverage of her funeral…

(blink: blink)

I could understand the E network because what else are they going to show? Girls Next Door? (great show btw) But CNN???

How can Anna Nicole be this popular? Let’s try to break it down.

1. She’s got some killer bagumbas
2. She’s stupid
3. She’s a former playmate
4. She’s been on drugs
5. She married a millionaire

So how is that different than any other millionaire’s wife? In fact I don’t even think she was all that special for a playmate. She’s hot and I’d love to do the motorboat on her but I can name ten playmates right now that were hotter than her.

But why do people care this much? Who cares where the millionaire kid goes? Who cares about minute-by-minute updates on her funeral. SHE WASN’T THAT TALENTED OR MEMORABLE!

When Marlon Brando died we didn’t have all this coverage…and he was considered the best actor ever.
Hell, I can’t remember the last actor/musician to have this much coverage. I guess Princess Di had this much but come on, she’s Princess fucking Diana. Let’s take a moment and compare princess Di to Anna Nicole Smith…after a good 4 minutes then ask yourself WHY. Why is she getting Princess type coverage? What did she ever do to make that many people care? Act stupid for a year?

2. Twins fans basing the entire 2007 season on 4 spring training games.

Fans are already saying stuff like,
“wow, this is going to be a long season”
“soandso is going to be very disappointing this year”

Spring training games are like the first couple rolls when you get to the bowling alley. You’re just trying to get used to the ball and knocking down all the pins aren’t a must.
Spring training games are like salad before the main course. You just kinda pick at all the all the stuff that you like and leave whatever doesn’t have dressing on it.
Spring training games are like grabbing the un cooked cookie dough and eating it. You don’t care if you get Salmonella but the stuff tastes good.

Spring Training is just glorified practice that people actually pay for. Because Carlos Silva had a bad outing on March 1st doesn’t mean he’s going to have a bad year.

Come on people…
