Deep Thoughts with Manny Ramirez

Now that this blog is basically down to one (from its original five), you, dear readers, are going to have to put up with the things that I(AYM) find interesting, namely the Red Sox, Tom Brady, Lost (and more TV) and home decor — not necessarily in that order.

Manny 2007 ALDS

Which brings me to this endearing quote from Manny Ramirez to the New York Times’ Jack Curry:

“After all this is over, all I want is for my kids to go to college and to be their best friend,” Ramírez said. “That’s all I want. I don’t care about home runs or whatever.”

Say what you will about the enigmatic slugger, but I think he really is a genius. And, apparently, a doting dad.

Tom Brady was finally photographed with his son John Edward Thomas Moynahan!!! Maybe he’s not that bad of a guy after all!?!?? A girl can dream…

Tom, Gisele & John

Apparently, Tom & Gisele are spending some time in LA, and that means baby time. Little guy looks pretty cute too!

Oh, and the NFL schedule for next season just came out this week — here’s the Pats’!

Robin Sparkles Dances

April 21. Mark your calendar folks — for the return of Robin Sparkles on HIMYM! Variety.com has a preview of her new single, and let me tell you… it’s good! Just take read over this choice lyric: “together we were going to travel the globe, from Alberta to Ontario.” I mean, how can people not watch this show?!?!!!

UPDATE: BestWeekEver.com has the video!!!  And, it’s goooood.

What Does a Film Critic Look Like? April 15, 2008

Ebert/NY Times

Sunday’s New York Times has a nice piece on the film critic Roger Ebert.  He announced recently, via a letter to readers of the Chicago Sun-Times, that he will not return to his TV show (recent surgery has left him without his voice), but he will resume reviewing moves for the Sun-Times.

The Times calls Ebert “the virtual embodiment” of the profession of film critic.

And, by TV, I mean “30 Rock.”  Oh, how we’ve missed Liz Lemon (and her doppelganger who’s been off in Spain), Jack, Tracy and Kenneth!!!

30 Rock

Apparently tonight’s episode deals with a new reality show called “MILF Island.”  Oohh, this sounds good!

Happy Baseball Season! April 4, 2008

This post may be a couple days late, but my Sox (red) are off to a great start, despite the around-the-world trip to start the season in Japan. They are 3-1 after knocking around the A’s on two different continents. Beckett comes back this Sunday, and all (well, most — Schilling is still out) is right with the Nation.

I came across this great map (from a Niketown store??)…
