And to think, Sir Paul wrote the music for that little ditty when he was 16 - penning the lyric much later.

Whoever invented those stretchers used by Italy's World Cup team deserves the Nobel Prize for Medicine. Just one quick ride on them, and a player is as good as new.

Unbelievable, someone finally pegged it.  I have tried myself all year long to put what the Phillies look like, feel like and even...smell like.  And you got it exactly right.  The only question remains is, when they finally wise up and give him his walking papers, will the stench lessen?

Db The Beerleaguer put it best Thursday, when the local nine found themselves 9 and a half games behind the Amazin's:

Is there really another game starting in an hour? It wasn’t even enough time to pop an Advil. This morning, I feel like David Bell looks. Scratchy. A little greasy. Pasty, like uncooked chicken. A little wobbled, like I spent the night on a college couch. My face shows the imprint of a second-hand throw pillow. I smell like a clothes hamper... The Mets have the look of a team that believes they can win every day. The Phillies look ... well ... a lot like David Bell.

Bigb The Pink Seats take on Ben Roethlisberger:

He was a naturally talented athlete as a young kid.  He set high school records for yards and touchdowns. He took his University team to a Mid-American Conference championship win.  He was drafted in the first round for the NFL.  In 2005 he was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.  And he took the Steelers to the Super Bowl last year.  No wonder he felt like he had a giant "B" emblazoned on his chest underneath his clothes.  We think Ben likely had a "superhero complex" – a feeling of invincibility.

Blue_cheer__vincebus_eruptum Oh, my God -- Blue Cheer Saturday at the North Star Bar!

Before I was a card-carrying rockist, my closet impeccably stocked with Let It Bleed, The Band, Forever Changes, A Long Time Coming, etc ... I was a power-chord fiend with braces and a robin's egg blue Gibson Kalamazoo.

Which meant my record collection included such hormonal surges as Atomic Rooster, Frijid Pink (they did a turned-up-to-11 cover of "House of the Rising Sun"), the first Black Sabbath album, and a delicate guitar workout called Vincebus Eruptum. It featured a fuzz-drenched version of "Summertime Blues" that would have killed Eddie Cochran if he weren't already dead in 1968.

P1010040_1 News that the Capanos want paid a cool mil to lend their family name to a building at Archmere Academy has generated some blog buzz.

(Quick fact file: Attorney Tom Capano murdered his mistress, Anne Marie Fahey. Brother Louis Jr. lied to the grand jury and destroyed evidence. Harrassed someone, too. Brother Gerald helped lose the body, but leaked to the feds.)

That a new arts center at the Claymont, Del., private school is to be named after their parents, hasn't appeased the critics.

Wharton convenes a panel of national experts to discuss "Net Neutrality." They conclude that legislation that would stop communications companies from creating a two-tiered Internet (regular and premium) would be wrong.

Not because it's a bad idea, necessarily, to protect the small from the big.

But because they don't trust Congress to get it right.
