Stop Complaining

So Art Howe, the former Oakland A's manager depicted in the new movie "Moneyball", isn't too thrilled will how he was portrayed.
For one, Howe says he looks nothing like Oscar winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman who plays him in the movie. Howe told"Houston Chronicle" that Hoffman was a little on the heavy side to play him. Really? PSH is one of the best actors on the planet. Howe should be privileged to have anyone portray him. Plus, the movie opened in second place at the movie box office last weekend, taking in just over 20-million-dollars in ticket sales.

Brewers Playoff Scenarios

Here are the four playoff scenarios still exist for the Brewers, courtesy of Tom Haudricourt of The firs two scenarios would result in the Brewers playoff bus trip happening on Saturday, while the next two would push the bus trip back to Tuesday.
If Atlanta wins the wild card and the Brewers hold on to the No. 2 seed, the Braves would come to Milwaukee to open the NLDS. Atlanta and St. Louis are tied with one game to play and if they remain tied, there would be a one-game playoff Thursday in St. Louis. Atlanta cannot play top-seeded Philadelphia in the first round because they are in the same division.
If St. Louis wins the wild card, the Cardinals will open the NLDS in Philadelphia. Then, if the Brewers hang on to the wild card, Arizona will come to Milwaukee to open the NLDS.
If Atlanta wins the wild card and Arizona ties Milwaukee for the No. 2 seed and claims it with the tie-breaker (4-3 record in season series), the Brewers would go to Philadelphia and the Braves would go to Arizona. Again, Atlanta and Philly can't play in the first round because they are in the same division.
If St. Louis wins the wild card, the Cardinals would travel to Philadelphia to open the NLDS. And if Arizona wins Wednesday and the Brewers lose, those teams would begin the NLDS in Arizona because the D-Backs have that tie-breaker.

Easy Mistake to Make

An Oregon man is in the news following a failed trip to a Nebraska casino. The "Lincoln Journal Star" says the 21-year-old man was taken into protective custody last Saturday night after he confused the University of Nebraska-Lincoln police station for a casino. The man reportedly left the station after an employee at the front desk told him they didn't have any blackjack chips. He returned a few moments later, prompting officers to get involved. It was quickly discovered that the man had a blood alcohol content of point-two-seven-three. Police say the man didn't commit any crimes so he wasn't arrested, but they did decide to place him in detox.

With the flashing lights outside and the people in funny uniforms, I guess this is an easy mistake to make.

BIG NEWS for Van Halen Fans

Van Halen May Sign With Columbia

First album since 1984? Definitely exciting.

According to theHollywood Reporter, no deal has been signed just yet, but the Sony-owned company is "in the lead" in the race to release the band's first album with original frontman David Lee Roth since 1984. That record is expected to hit stores sometime next year.

Hangover Copycat

I have a few friends in dental school, and I don't think they learned this technique in any of their textbooks, and it's probably not a great idea to practice your dentistry skills after you've been drinking. According to, Florida resident Francisco Rojas learned that lesson after he tried to remove his tooth last weekend. Rojas' wife called 911 on Sunday and told dispatchers that her husband was "drunk in the garage trying to pull his tooth out with a pair of pliers." Port St. Lucie police arrived to find vomit on the floor, and Rojas attempting to play dentist. Rojas apparently didn't appreciate their concern. He allegedly yelled at police that it was his house and they couldn't do anything if he was drunk. Rojas continued to yell obscenities until he was eventually arrested for breach of peace. I think he was just to be like Stu here.

This guy is just an idiot.

File this under "Could you really be that stupid?"

Sleeping on the job has proven to be a costly mistake for one would-be burglar in Kansas. is reporting that a man was arrested after he decided to take a nap in the home he had broken into. Wichita police say the couple that owns the house came home on Saturday afternoon to discover a 35-year-old man putting on their clothes. The suspect reportedly hid in their closet, but was eventually located and arrested. Police say the man had broken into the home earlier in the day, and proceeded to take a shower and then fall asleep. Authorities believe had the man not decided to take a nap, he would have been able to make off with the couple's belongings. He is now charged with aggravated burglary and theft.

"If only I wouldn't have taken a nap. Where did I go wrong?

Who isn't jealous of Tom Brady?

Anybody see Tom Brady last night? Yeah, he was pretty good. Of course I was facing Wes Welker in my fantasy league, and that 99-yard touchdown totally screwed me. But 517 yards for Brady in the season opener? Yeah, that's pretty good. Plus he got to go home to Gisele last night. (Photo by People Magazine)

Still, Brady's performance didn't crack the top three of all time.

Plax Fires Away

Plaxico Burress took some shots (luckily not at himself) at former coach Tom Coughlin and Giants QB Eli Manning in a interview released today by Men's Journal magazine. He just comes across as bitter for having gotten himself into his own mess, and really looks bad. I guess all that time in prison left him time to get mad at someone. Read more from the NY Post here

You hear that Ed? Bears.

Now we're putting the whole station in jeopardy.

A California family awoke to the horn honking on their 2002 Prius, only to find a bear trapped inside. The bear even put the car in neutral and rolled the car into a neighbor's yard, hitting some boulders along the way. According to the car owner, "There's nothing left."

Hey Pearl Jam fans...

Pearl Jam put on quite the show at Alpine Valley this weekend, and you can learn all about their upcoming documentary for their 20th anniversary by watching "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" tonight at 11:35. The documentary is called "Pearl Jam Twenty" and the film's director, Cameron Crowe, is also scheduled to appear on "Late Night" tonight as well.

Rock Lobster?

I can understand a candy bar or maybe a sandwich if you're really hungry, but stealing not only one, but two live lobsters? I guess those wouldn't set off the alarm in the store. And it wasn't just lobsters - shrimp and pork loin too. Had he got away, that would have been a pretty legit surf and turf feast. Apparently the guy "tried to escape by throwing the pork loin at employees at the local Winn Dixie but fell while running away" Only in Mississippi.

Have you heard the one about the drunk moose?

A moose in Sweden got a little tipsy after eating one too many fermented apples, slipped and fell into a tree and couldn't get loose. We've all been there before. Check out the link here.
