Weekend Recap

Rock Band is a fun game, but my problem is that you have to be completely focused (sober) to play it successfully. And why the hell do I get stuck with the drums, I have no rhythm whatsoever. Xtra Medium does have the killer vocals though, especially on the female singer songs. Here are some happenings from the weekend as we rehydrate for the upcoming week.

Catfish pointed out this article in NY Times Magazine by Michael Lewis, who wrote Moneyball in case you did not know, on Shane Battier and the NBA. []

Hank Aaron says he does not care if Bonds holds the record, probably because everyone will know who the real king is anyway. []

The H-O-R-S-E trophy seemed to be crafted by a 3rd grader. [Deadspin]

Marshawn apparently does not have a funtional brain under all thsoe dreads. [PFT]

Joe Posnanski weighs in on the steroid issue. [JoePosnanski]

Some college football storylines to mull over, but I doubt Oregon should be at the top of the list. []

Shaq and Kobe make nice nice, Shaq dances with a mask that is too small for him, West wins All-Star game. [Yahoo!]

The Simpsons should have gone off the air years ago in my opinion, but they have a new intro for their HD switch-over. [YouTube from my boy Echowood]

Youre it
No, youre it
Hey, youre really it
Youre it
No I mean it, youre it

Say it
Dont spray it
Spirit desire (face me)
Spirit desire (dont displace me)
Spirit desire
We will fall

Miss me
Dont dismiss me

Spirit desire

Spirit desire [x3]
We will fall
Spirit desire
We will fall
Spirit desire [x3]
We will fall
Spirit desire
We will fall

Everybodys talking bout the stormy weather
And whats a man do to but work out whether its true?
Looking for a man with a focus and a temper
Who can open up a map and see between one and two

Time to get it
Before you let it
Get to you

Here he comes now
Stick to your guns
And let him through

Everybodys coming from the winter vacation
Taking in the sun in a exaltation to you
You come running in on platform shoes
With marshall stacks
To at least just give us a clue
Ah, here it comes
I know its someone I knew

Teenage riot in a public station
Gonna fight and tear it up in a hypernation for you

Now I see it
I think Ill leave it out of the way
Now I come near you
And its not clear why you fade away

Looking for a ride to your secret location
Where the kids are setting up a free-speed nation, for you
Got a foghorn and a drum and a hammer thats rockin
And a cord and a pedal and a lock, thatll do me for now

It better work out
I hope it works out my way
cause its getting kind of quiet in my citys head
Takes a teen age riot to get me out of bed right now

You better look it
Were gonna shake it
Up to him

He acts the hero
We paint a zero
On his hand

We know its down
We know its bound too loose
Everybodys sound is round it
Everybody wants to be proud to choose
So whos to take the blame for the stormy weather
Youre never gonna stop all the teenage leather and booze

Its time to go round
A one man showdown
Teach us how to fail

Were off the streets now
And back on the road
On the riot trail
