There’s one more thing I forgot to rant about yesterday…
On Sunday or Monday morning, I saw a brief clip of a journalist interviewing Spike Lee about the Hurricane Katrina aftermath. She asked him, “Who’s at fault?” He went on to say that the local government, state government, and federal government were all to blame. She then asked him if he thinks President Bush cares about black people or something along those lines. Spike said something along the lines of, “President Bush doesn’t care about all poor people. Black. Brown. Asian.” I thought, “WHAT THE HECK?! You don’t even know him personally!” We all know Dubya and his administration are far from perfect. You can’t say that about a person if you don’t even really know him. I’m going to get Reggie Miller (even though he’s a Bruin) to show Spike what’s up!!! If someone saw that same interview and/or can give me a link to the transcript of it, that would be sweet!
Fast-forward to Monday Night Football on ESPN. The New Orleans Saints and the repaired Superdome are the biggest things to hit New Orleans since Mardi Gras. One disturbing thing I heard during the broadcast was that people who lost everything and don’t currently have jobs purchased season tickets. I’m not sure that’s the most prudent thing for people to be doing even though the team is the area’s lifeblood right now. But that’s my opinion and they’re more than entitled to spend their money however they please.
The Los Angeles Dodger$ rocked the Colorado Rockies this afternoon 19-11 in the stratified air of Coors Field. James Loney, subbing for a wounded Nomar (pronounced No-MAH by some of us) Garciaparra, drove in 9 runs today! I’m actually glad they put up 19 runs today because that probably means their bats will be quiet until the end of the season as they go to PacBell/SBC/AT&T Park to play the San Francisco Giants to watch their hopes get drowned in McCovey Cove.
The San Diego Padres open up a four game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks tonight at Bank One Ballpark. GO BLUE!!! Padre blue that is!
