Conway Twitty Day

It's Conway Twitty's birthday. Running out of titles for posts has really expanded my knowledge of minor celebrity birthdays.

I know I say this a lot, but there's nothing going on. Peter Gammons had a chat on the ESPN site, where this exchange occured:

Steve (DC): Obligatory Expos question: What are the chances that this is your last chat where we don't know next year's home? Does the past week of trouble for the N. Va. bid leave D.C. as the Last Bid Standing?

Peter Gammons: D.C. is the last bid standing, but it still will take a long time. First, the politicians are hardballing baseball b/c they know they have no where else to go. Second, MLB still has too high a price for the D.C. group. Third, Orioles owner Peter Angelos claims Bud Selig promised him their wouldn't be a team in Washington and if there is one thing that Angelos is good at, it's threatening and executing legal action.

Not that he has anything to sue about. Anyway, it's nice to hear Gammons say that DC is the only remaining option.

That's about it. If you want to get mad, you can go look at this moronic op-ed in the Sun. You'll probably be happier if you don't, and you won't run the risk of being made stupider just by reading it. See you tomorrow.
