DELMAR, NY – by Rex O’Rourke
I believe the right field wall at Citifield needs to be rethought.
I believe that Midnight Oil should have been bigger.
I believe Plaxico Burressâ€™s fate was sealed when his lawyer had his case adjourned.Â The postponement was good for Plaxico the man, bad for Plaxico the Giant.
I believe the Matts go to WAY to many ballgames!
IÂ believe people are snapping way too often with guns in this country.Â We have 305 million citizens and 280 million guns.Â If you want to bear arms, do us all a favor, and settle for a sleeveless tee shirt.
I believe Iâ€™ll have a beer.
I believe the Sports Illustrated cover jinx has been watered down by the use of regional covers (thank goodness since the Yankeeâ€™s hefty lefty is on the cover this week).Â However I am delighted they picked the Mutts to go all the way, in their baseball preview.
I believe these TV shows are worthy of your time: That Metal Show, The Whitest Kids U Know, and Breaking Bad.
I believe people take much too long to work out.
I believe Antarctica is interesting.
I believe the Yankeesâ€™ defense is suspect and requires career years from Cano andÂ Nady,Â defensively.
I believe the raised floor at Ford Field is ridiculous.
IÂ believe that John Sterling is going to outlive me.Â This means I will have to endure him for the rest of my life.Â Today he forgot how many outs there were (after a strike â€˜em out throw â€˜em out double play, no less) and referred to the two Texiera home runs as a â€œTex Messageâ€ and â€œOn the Mark Texieraâ€.Â Ugh!
I believe windvanes are an excellent idea.
I believe RushÂ should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
I believe Iâ€™m going to lower my handicap.Â Â
I believe my I-pod is toast.
I believe Kiss had more success than they deserved, although the Unplugged CD is very good.
I believe spotting a 12 years-old on a cell phone as they ride their bike is a sad statement about the youth of America.
I believe I know nothing about women, although I know a great deal about one.
I believe no one is going to miss Shea.
I believe Iâ€™ll win my NCAA bracket if Michigan State wins it all.Â Iâ€™m very impressed with their hustle and they are very well coached.Â Itâ€™s also a nice story and a shot in the arm for an area of the country that has gotten hammered lately.
I believe I need some good Malaysian food.
I believe Pearl Jam is just right.
I believe I need MSNBC, CNN, and FOX NEWS on my channel favorites in order to get a more well-rounded view of current events.
I believe my cats, Yogi and Scooter, are spoiled and I don’t care.
I believe the following people are geniuses:Â Pete Townshend, Bill Mahar, Peter Gabriel, Jon Stewart, Joel and Ethan Coen, and of course, Charo.
I believe Iâ€™ll have a cookie and go to bed.Â
Until next week,
