I wanted to watch Game 4 of the Stanley Cup last night, but couldn’t, because it was on Versus, which I don’t have. (NBC opted for Celebrity Minute To Win It, with Steve-O and some other guy from Jackass. If that’s a bigger ratings draw than the Stanley Cup, the NHL still has a lot of work to do.)
I believe I have made my displeasure about playoff games being on cable channels known before, but I still find it ridiculous. So since I’m battling some serious writer’s block, here are other things which I am finding ridiculous today.
Dirk Nowitzki. (Also, Dirk Nowitzki’s shoulders. Is that weird?)
That this may be the closest we get to seeing any NFL players in official action for a while.
The banning (at the last minute, mind) of the Iranian women’s soccer team from the Olympics because of their headscarves.
Albert Pujols in the month of June.
(Aw, you knew it was coming.) What are you finding ridiculous today?
