The Cooler: this week in…

18 Feb

mose.pngINFORMATIVE POLITICAL SITES: Cnn.com‘s roundup of every Presidential candidate and their stated stance on every relevant issue. Quite useful. It’ll only take ten minutes until you can consider yourself educated, people. Time’s a-wastin’.

POMPUS WEBSITES: Lindsayism illuminates why many of us refuse to visit Pitchfork’s website.

CRAZY PARENTS OF YOUTH ATHLETES: A rundown can be provided on Deadspin. Quick recap: the coach of a sixth-grade girls’ basketball team broke a scorekeeper’s finger during a bench-clearing melee. I am not making any of this up.

SOUR GRAPES: Man, this Diablo Cody hatred is getting a bit out of hand. I understand that Juno may not have been as great as advertised, and part of her backlash is inevitable due to her rise in popularity…but, come on. Tracking down her next script just so you can rip it apart? Spending an inordinate amount of time and space writing a scathing piece about the film and everything else about Cody? I’m almost positive there are better ways to spend your time.

HILARIOUS SPORTS PRANKS: Kudos to youngster Kyle Kendrick for being such a good sport over being told that he had just been traded to a Japanese team. Congrats kid, and bask in the moment; you’ll probably never be this famous again.

ABSURD LEARNINGS: FireJoeMorgan.com has long been a highly-respected website devoted to sports commentary. Up until recently, the authors remained anonymous. When they finally revealed their true identities, it turned out that one of the main authors, alias “Ken Tremendous,” is not only a writer for NBC’s The Office, but he plays Mose Schrute. Now that, my friends, is absurd. Color me jealous of Tremendous, in every which way.

    Not only that, he’s married to Regis Philbin’s daughter!

    Sometimes, I think the world is a very, very strange place, and the only reason it seems to have any order whatsoever is that I’m just not paying attention.

    “Sometimes, I think the world is a very, very strange place, and the only reason it seems to have any order whatsoever is that I’m just not paying attention.” Jon did you copy that from someone or did you think of it yourself? The reason I ask is that I am starting to see some merit to being a touch unaware.
