3. February, 2008 - electile dysfunction

Got an email the other day mentioning that “electile dysfunction” was a new term for 2008. (being mentioned in connection with the super-Tuesday primaries which include Minnesota in a couple days). A quick search here shows that I’ve been using the term since 2000, and I’m pretty sure I stole it from somewhere else. Just in case you were wondering.

I hear there’s some sort of important American Football match later today. Huh! For me, the sports year of 2008 will begin in two weeks with the 50th running of the Daytona 500 [warning: annoying noise], but then there are those who say that I “just ain’t right.” Plus in ten days, pitchers and catchers report, which is also a possible marker for the start of the sporting year. I’m more excited about the rednecks turning left though, since spring training for the Saints won’t begin until late March (with the league-wide tryout camp down in Texas).

And that’s about it for today. I feel like I’ve been struggling through these updates lately, since I’m often short on links, and when I do go out looking for new and exciting crap to point you towards, I get depressed by the news and don’t feel like I can write anything about it without sounding glum.
