We’ve all seen videos of comedians recycling jokes. Or maybe you haven’t. But here’s your chance. First we have Letterman’s Top Ten Thoughts that went through Mark Buerhle’s head while throwing a perfect game.

Sports + Charity + Wine?!?! Count Me In.

I am by no means a wine connoisseur, much less a sommelier (you can probably slap anyone who says they are) but I like wine and know a little bit about it and more importantly wine intrigues me. It has an intangible quality that can’t be found in other alcoholic beverages. Having a nice wine with dinner can be one of the classiest ways to enjoy alcohol.

2009 Link Round-Up, Highlights and Lowlights

Well 2009 is coming to a close so I thought I’d compile some of my note-worthy internet finds of 2009. Not all originated in 2009, but most of the content and news did. Anything that didn’t, I discovered for myself in 2009.

2009 saw a pair of near tragic events in the air this year, neither of which ended with the loss of human life. First in January when a plane piloted by Captain Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger went into the Hudson with 155 people on board. Then on Christmas day when a wanna-be terrorist, Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, failed to successfully detonate a bomb on an airliner headed to Detroit.

Taking Back Sunday released a new album called New Again. A decent CD, but a typical Taking Back Sunday CD. Nothing groundbreaking or especially catching so overall a disappointment. But a new TBS CD is always a good thing.
