My hatred for people who try to save their shoveled out parking spaces has been well documented on my blog and I'm happy to say that I haven't had to toss anyone's buckets/chairs/boards into the garbage or parkway as I walk, or drive, by. Yes, I've actually stopped my car, gotten out, picked up the material being used to save their spot and disposed of it. If they pass a law that says I can annex the street for my personal use as I see fit, then fine, I'll let someone save their spot in winter. If I can do it summer, they can do it in the winter. Until then, no dice.
And I have some sports rants too. If my team is up by 30 in the fourth quarter and I want to pass, guess what? I'm going to pass. If you have a problem with it, play some damn defense and stop me. Same deal with stealing bases when up by 7+ runs late in the game. If you have a problem with me stealing to stay out of the double play, tell your wuss armed catcher to make a throw or your dense pitcher to hold on my runners a bit better.
Another baseball "unwritten rule" is not bunting to break up a no-hitter. Guess what? You don't want me to bunt, don't play your third baseman in short left field! Play him on the edge of the grass and take the bunt away. Otherwise, screw you and your no-hitter if I beat it out. And furthermore, I've seen one play open the floodgates for a big rally (do you remember Bartman?).
So that's my rant for today. The only other thing I have to say is thank the Good Lord that Tebow loss. Just imagine if he was giving thanks to something else that he worshiped every time he was being interviewed? Let's say it's a bagel* or something more objectionable like.....some dead murderer. "I just want to thank my Lord and savior, John Wayne Gacy. Not so great then huh? Just keep it to yourself.
*The obvious choice here for an analogy would be Allah, but Jews, Christians and Muslims all stem from the same "father of the faith", Abraham, so that's not really enough of a distinction from what he does now. Many people even believe all three religions even have the same God, but have different messengers and messages: Christ or Muhammad for example.
