The Bean n’ the Spire…

Hadta make a visit to DocFeelGood as my blood wasn’t quite right last week. No problem. Did a dosage-adjustment and I’m fine.

Y’know, I watch that TV ad with that guy who asks if he can “up his game” as far as his meds are concerned. What? And, it’s more about convenience than anything. Oh well, guess I know why advertising RX-drugs usetabe prohibited.

spire

Hope you all had a great weekend. It’s still cold but…we may actually have “above-freezing” temps…no, I didn’t say “above-zero” temps…I said, “above-freezing”! No Schlitz!

 

OK, time to get stared.

 

WABBIT SEASON

 

-The DrillBit’s Back and You’re Gonna Be In Trouble.

Was announced over the weekend that “The Chicago Spire”, project is back. I call it “The Drill-Bit”. No? Take a look at these and you tell me: https://www.google.com/search?q=the+spire+chicago&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=dgH5Uq-aCcjXyAH5voDQDw&ved=0CCQQsAQ&biw=1440&bih=763

 

This will work nicely with “The Bean” in Millennium Park. For non-ChiTowners, the real title of it is “Cloud Gate”. Again, take a look and you tell me: https://www.google.com/search?q=the+spire+chicago&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=dgH5Uq-aCcjXyAH5voDQDw&ved=0CCQQsAQ&biw=1440&bih=763#q=the+chicago+bean&tbm=isch

 

Whatever we call it, The Bean it IS cool.

 

-TIME FOR THE WAYBACK MACHINE.

Let’s all take a look at what’s happened on this date as noted in historynet.com, among others…

 

1258,   Mongol leader, Heugu seized Baghdad, ending the Abassid caliphate. If that don’t get yer Huegu-workin’, what would?

 

1840,   Queen Victoria married Prince Albert.

“Ring-ring!”

“Hello”.

“You got Prince Albert in a can?”

“Yes”.

“Then let him out!”

 

1846,   Brigham Young led his Mormon followers from Nauvoo, Il., to Utah. 148-years later, his great-great-great-grandson, Steve, would lead the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl victory.

 

1960,  Apparently pissed off because his beer could not be purchased east of the Rocky Mountains, Adolph Coors was kidnapped.

 

1966,   David Miller, a man for whom, “Hell, no! We won’t go!”, really meant something, was convicted for burning his draft card.

 

1979,   The Metropolitan Museum announced the first theft of its 110-year history, a $150,000.00 Greek marble head. No cat’s-eyes” nor “boulders” were found to have been missing, though.

 

-WORDS TO LIVE BY…Was flipping channels between events at the Olympics and came across “Jurassic Park”. Some may wonder about my affinity for this/these films. Well, one thing is I never grew up. By that I mean that as a kid I was fascinated with dinosaurs and still am. It’s also my affinity for Michael Crichton, the author of the novel(s) on which the film(s) are based. He had such an abiding respect for nature…which many of us share…that no matter what we humans think/do/think we can do, “…life finds a way”. Anyway, I tuned into the scene just after they’d first seen the brachiosaurs and are having dinner; just before their sojourn out to the T-Rex-paddock…and a very riveting scene during Mr. T-Rex’s attack.

At the table, as the park’s owner and developer, John Hammond, (Sir Richard Attenborough) and his lawyer, Genarro, (Martin Ferrerro), are discussing how much money they’re gonna make, Crichton’s “Everyman”, Ian Malcolm, (Jeff Goldblum) says:

“The lack of humility before Nature that’s being displayed here, staggers me”. Amen!

 

-IRANIAN ADMIRAL SAYS IRANIAN SHIPS WILL PATROL JUST OUTSIDE U.S. TERRITORIAL WATTERS.

Accordingly, the U.S. Navy has issued an “Full-Alert” to all ships of The Atlantic Fleet to be on the lookout for any suspicious-looking rowboats approaching the edge of our territorial-waters.

 

-HEADLINES…

” ‘Shock and awe’ campaign vs. Rauner”. Here’s the thing, this campaign against the GOPerGoober hopeful, Rauner, is NOT being run by DaDems. Uh-uh. It’s being run by GOPers. Maybe they don’t like his wearing Carhart jackets, neither.

 

“Jury saw what Alvarez missed”. This is regarding the “Nato-3″ verdict in which the three charged were convicted of Mob action but not terrorism. Alvarez is the Cook County State’s Attorney. She claimed she did not “overreach” with the terrorism charges.

Funny thing, she couldn’t even think of any charges in the Koschman murder case, though. This clip’s kinda nteresting: http://projects.suntimes.com/koschman/latest-news/daleys-city-hall-scrambled-over-vanecko-questions/

 

 

“Republican Party becomes new workers party”. If my typing is bad, excuse me as I can’t stop laughing at the headline over Uber-Righty-tighty, Mona Charen’s column.

 

“Tribune newspaper spinoff likely to happen midyear”. This should be interesting, inasmuch as some real-righty-tighties have been rumored as possible purchasers.

 

“Kerry making 5th trip to Asia”. Heard he was overheard as saying how much he craved the kim chee in Seaul and the chicken-fried rice with Peking Duck in Kowloon.

 

 

DUCK SEASON

-THE BEATLES ANNIVERSAY SHOW. No, didn’t watch it…well  a bit here and there. We were watching The Olympics and would flip over every now and then. Did see Joe Walsh, ChiTowner- Dave Grohl and Gary Clark, Jr., do an excellent rendition of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”. Did DVR it and will comment when we’ve viewed it.

 

-THE BIG SCREEN

Are planning on seeing “The Monuments Men” sometime later this week. Didn’t hurt that TBS ran “Ocean’s Eleven”…the Clooney version…yesterday.

 

TUBULARLY SPEAKING…

Skipped last night’s episode of “True Detective, last night but will see it sometime t’day or t’morra.

 

Not much else to view other than rerun on broadcast channels. So, if yer not much of a fan of The Olympics, yer S.O.L.

 

-THE OLYMPICS.

Anyone besides me wondering what effin’ history book Vlad The Impaler used for his “Histroy of MuthaRussia, opening ceremonies”? In his book(s), “gulags” must be winter-footwear; “pogroms” are what cheerleaders shake…besides their butts…and “purges” are what bulimics do after gorging themselves.

 

Otherwise, what we’ve watched we’ve enjoyed.

 

By the way, if you were wondering about Bob Costas’ “pink eye”, here’s a quote: “ “Bear with me for a moment as I spare my friends in the press office countless inquiries. I have no choice to go all ‘Peabody and Sherman’ on you for the next couple of nights since I woke up this morning with my left eye swollen shut and just about as red as the old Soviet flag,” he said at the beginning of Thursday’s primetime coverage.

 

 

-LAST BUT NOT LEAST, ENJOY TODAY’S CARTOON. Hint: “Ya can’t outsmart me, cuz I’m a moron”. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x48aud_merrie-melodies-jack-wabbit-and-the_shortfilms

 

AND NOW…SPORT

 

-THE OLYMPICS.

Honestly, if anyone wants to chime in, please do. I like the more athletic contests, read that skiing…snowboarding, even.

The women’s Biathlon was interesting…waiting for the guys.

 

Love the downhill and its permutations.

 

The snowboarding events are exciting. No wonder it’s mostly kids. Anyone past 30′d be nuts to do that stuff.

 

Enjoyed the Polack winning the first round of ski-jumping, too.

 

Ice Dancing? If “dancing” were a sport, fine. Yes, it takes stamina, training and discipline but it’s not an athletic event.

 

-TODAY’S TOPIC…DH OR NOT DH? THAT IS THE QUESTION.

When the DH began in 1973, I was not against it as one of my fave hitters at the time, Tony Oliva, was pretty much playing on one leg. Since then, I’m more ambivalent though I do prefer the NL, mainly for the strategery-factors. That and if I tune into the middle of an NL game and the pitcher comes up, even if I’m unfamiliar with the teams playing, I know the top of the order’s coming up. With the AL, no such luck.

 

Now, we have several Sox fans; many Cubs…as well as DaMets, BoSox and maybe even DaBraves (partly).

 

Here’s my take on it. If AL fans hafta have it, fine. Just don’ make it in both leagues. Those who want the DH can watch it, while those of us who prefer the puzzlements presented to managers and fans in the NL, get their way. Just don’t make it mandatory in both.

 

FYI…folks, if I’d had the talent to have made it to MLB, I’m a perfect, DH. Nominal, if any, defensive-skills; strong arm; slower than molasses anytime over the past 45-days in ChiTown. Perhaps it’s because of that that I prefer guys who have to be able to play “D” and “O”.

 

Whaddayou think?

 

 

OK, time to go. Take care and remember, anytime we an remember looking down at a rosebush beats actually being able to look up at its roots.

 

HaGooDay!
