Is it just me...

1) ...or does the guy in drag and pretending he's pregnant, with the various kinds of nachos under his shirt in the Taco Bell television advertisement, look just like MSNBC host Rachel Maddow?

2) ...or do contestants on the quiz showJeopardy, when they manage to have a Daily Double opportunity in a fairly limited category (i.e., anything with initials, in quotation marks, or another one of those categories that Jeopardy writers love), always bet too low?
C'mon folks, there aren't that many possible answers, no one can beat you to the buzzer! Bet it all!

3)...or does it seem silly for the NCAA to investigate alleged UConn recruiting violations relating to a student who never played a game at UConn and has already been expelled? As readers of this blog know, I'm no fan of Jim Calhoun or his basketball program, but, if you're going to investigate and perhaps sanction the program, spend your time looking into potential violations concerning players who 1) have played or 2) are still enrolled or actually graduated.

4)...or will absolutely nothing good come of this whole HD transition? We already get way too much break-up on our connected-to-cable non-HD tv, and, just because the interference is in nice little pixilated strips of blocks, it's still bloody interference.

Whose idea was this again?

  1. Sorry, but the Taco Bell guy does not look anything like Rachel Maddow.
