There is a lot going on right now with all the subjects I like to write about: Occupy LA is getting evicted (probably tonight) to make way for a movie shoot (starring Sean Penn, ironically). CitiBank’s deal with the SEC to protect them from fault in the MBS mess was overturned by a New York judge. SOPA and PIPA are threatening the free space of the internet for the sake of protecting intellectual property laws conceived in the 19th century.
But I wanted to point out some good news that I stumbled upon while reading an article on ESPN about the recent success of Tim Tebow’s high-school style offense for the Denver Broncos: The age of multi-megaton, city-destroying nuclear weapons has come to an end.

Which one am I, the has-been or the never-was?
Jose Canseco apparently was too scared to get into a Celebrity Boxing match against actual-boxer Billy Paden, so instead of backing out over privacy concerns related to the inevitable blood testing he’d endure, he sent his identical twin brother to fight for him! Problem is, he has tattoos that appear not only on his body, but on the ads for the fight itself. Nice move.
First of all, I had no idea Jose Canseco had a twin brother. Second of all, this is ballsy. Third of all, why didn’t they do an awesome tag team act?
Also, the Bash Brother has struck back on Twitter, which is hilarious. That we can write, I mean.
I assume there are really only a few hundred New York Jets fans, amirite?
Pats: 45 Jets: 3
