Puppy Bowl Sunday

New Blog! The Filibuster started on the first of the month and promises stats, sarcasm, and procrastination. Welcome aboard, Jon, and may your promise of postless months turn out to have been overstated.

Other than that, I got nothing. Nothing's happening, and Tom Boswell hasn't said anything dumb. IGN has a video and several screenshots from EA MVP Baseball, all featuring the Nationals. I know it's silly, but that video gets me all hyped up. March 2005 is going to be the longest month of my life.

It's off topic, but I'd like to take a moment to salute as a genius whoever came up with the Puppy Bowl. In case you missed it, let me explain: there's a large box made up to look like a football field, with fake stands and yard lines and everything. A whole mess o' puppies is unleashed in this thing, and they run around and fight over the water bowl and chew toys and sniff one another's butts for three hours, and then they show it again. That's all it is. And it's great. It's a hell of a lot more entertaining than any shocking celebrity cameo in a Doritos commercial or whatever, and it couldn't have cost anything to make. Maybe a hundred bucks for puppy rental. The DVD is only ten bucks, in case you need a gift for the person who has everything. The little white Jack Russel is my favorite.
