Inching towards mediocrity.


James Bond Goes Green. (Or he would, if he were, you know…real).

I was daydreaming at work the other day (as I’m want to do from time to time) when I started thinking about James Bond. Not in any weird way, mind you (minus the general weirdness of a grown man thinking about James Bond in the middle of the day while, ostensibly, hard at work) (I wasn’t). No, I was thinking about James Bond’s penchant for gadgets, and the environmental part of my mind began to wonder what it would be like if James Bond went green. Would he still have those wonderful gadgets? Or would his desire to leave a smaller carbon footprint on the planet he’s been saving from cat loving super-villains for since the early 1960’s curb his gadgetry excess for good?

The majority of his enemies lairs and schemes run on natural volcano power. So they're good.

As with most things in life, the internet provided me with my answer.

Kevin Costner will save us all. (Now with 87% more hyperbole!)

They have tried everything to fix the oil spill. Garbage. Giant containment units. Golf balls. They even (briefly, I hope) considered nuking it.

There was one solution they hadn’t considered, though. Until now.

Kevin. Costner.

Yes. HIM.

Completely Lucid Mime Duo Are Totally Into Miracles. (And, God, apparently).

I’ll be honest. I don’t really know a lot about the Insane Clown Posse. I’d heard of them, sure, and was aware that they were some kind of rap group, who were known for their wacky stage shows and wackier makeup and outfits. Also, they’re totally hardcore.

Rip Torn is the most badass 78-year-old bank robber you’ll ever meet. (And pray that you never do).

Rip Torn, the actor best known for his Emmy-award winning role on “The Larry Sanders Show” (and also for hitting Norman Mailer in the head with a hammer) has apparently been arrested for – and I’m not making this up – alleged armed robbery of a bank in Conneticut while intoxicated. Also, he’s seventy-eight years old.

Awesome.

I’m not sure I’d trust these guys with my legal troubles…

Handheld, charbroiled goodness. (Now with 87% more chance of a heart attack at an early age!)

Well.

Today we take another look into the depths of my fair city (Toronto) to see what’s what – BURGER WISE.

Silver Sluggers. (Now with 88% less Robinson Cano!)

Aaron Hill and Adam Lind

Well.

Quick baseball related interlude here, and then we’ll return you to your regularly scheduled “24-centric” programming.

The MLB handed out their annual Golden Glove and Silver Slugger awards, and while the Blue Jays were shut out in defense, they made a big impact in offense.

Only three teams in the entire MLB had multiple recipients of Silver Slugger awards – The New York Yankees (World Series Champions), the LA Dodgers (National League West Champions) and the Toronto Blue Jays (American League East Fourth Place Champions.)

Aaron Hill, our All-Star second basemen, and Adam Lind our All-Star-in-our-hearts designated hitter, each brought home the award.

Congratulations, boys, and hopefully these two will remain the faces of the franchise for a long time – something we’ll definitely need after we inevitably trade Halladay.

Edit:

Huh. It seems that this just happens to be my 32nd blog post.

Roy Halladay’s number.

GUESS HE’S STAYING AFTER ALL, FOLKS.

Please don’t quote me on that.
