Squawker Jon, you are way out of date. Josh Beckett is just a blip on the radar as being one of my most-hated Red Sox these days, especially since the Yankees seem to pummel him every time they face him now. I am not sure if he would even make my Top 5 least favorite Red Sox this year, not with annoying teammates like Jonathan Papelbon, Kevin Youkilis, and Dustin Pedroia.
Speaking of which, Sully Baseball and I had a discussion on his radio show the other night about how this is the worst era ever for baseball nicknames, with so-called nicknames really being shortening of names, like "Tek" and "Youk." How boring. Not that the Yankees are much better in the nicknames department these days, though. We also discussed about how every scandal has a "gate" attached to it. How annoying!
Anyhow, Squawker Jon, you are correct about my hatred of "Star Trek." The only things I liked about the show was the cat episode, and that you refer to "The Wrath of Swan" whenever I have a hissy fit! I did read our friend Sully's entire article comparing Beckett and "Star Trek", though!
Speaking of pop culture, I think I finally figured out why "Sheen's Korner" is spelled with a K. It's Charlie's tribute to "Kiner's Korner"! Ralph oughta sue.
What do you think? Tell us about it!
