Welcome back kids.
Another week in the books. With them came the MLB playoffs. Roy Halladay threw a no-hitter in the first game of the Phillies’ series with the Reds. That’s gotta sting. The Yankees are doing their annual pummeling of the Twins. And, the Rangers are 9 innings away from eliminating the (Devil) Rays.
Oh yeah, and Randy Moss got traded from the Patriots to the Vikings. Let’s see if this makes Moss a better receiver and/or Brett Favre a better QB.
It’s a mad, mad, mad world kids.
Speaking of madness, say hello to this week’s cheesecake, Christina Hendricks.
While I’m a latecomer to the Mad Men party, I have to say the show is growing on me. There is something watching the ugliness under the 60s version of the American Dream. My wife and I are playing catch up thanks to Netflix whilst our trusty DVR collects season 4 for us.
As if that wasn’t enough geek cred for Ms. Hendricks, she was recently cast as the voice of Superman’s main squeeze, Lois Lane, in an upcoming DC animated movie.
And earlier this week, it was revealed, to nobody’s real suprise that Ms. Hendricks’ appeal hits all the demographics. Everyone, it seems, digs a curvy redhead.
