Slip sliding away

So your Uncle Buck sits down in front of the HDTV with a beer and a stack of pork chops around 8pm to watch Survivor and the Olympics and ends up with a night of disappointing television and a stomach ache.

UB had seen an ad earlier in the day promoting Survivor as the most intense episode ever, with the closest finish ever and something happening on Exile Island that would "change the game FOREVER!" UB turns over to NBC and sees that they are gonna show the lower level skaters and some ski jumping so UB watches the worst episode of Survivor so far...

As you may recall UB had mentioned US hopeful Sasha Cohen in a previous post as someone who looks like they could make it even without getting the gold. Model layouts (above) and charisma could make her a star with a silver or bronze, but surprisingly she went into last night's competition the leader for the gold...Then she began her free skate program:



Well...here's to hoping the modeling thing works out...

So after Sasha went crasha (NY Post), the focus turned to the Russian girl:

Ugh...so UB waited up til almost midnight on a school night for this? Thanks NBC. Those bastards could have shown the contending skaters at 8pm, since the damn even happened almost 5 hours earlier, but no, they had to throw out 3 hours of Unknown skater-Profile of unknown skater's homeland-Ski jumping-Unknown skater-profile of unknown skater's hometown...I hope they lose millions on this and the rest of the 20 Olympics they've paid out the nose for...

All of this after UB learned that the Patriots decided not to slap the "franchise" tag on Adam Vinatieri like last year. This leaves "Mr. Clutch" open to become a free agent...Now "In Belichick We Trust" but if they let Vinatieri go it is a big big big mistake...Therefore they won't let him go...gulp...

On the plus side full squad (minus Manny of course) workouts began for the Red Sox yesterday...

It was apparently very hot, forcing some players to strip down to their Jockeys and Sox...

John Henry: "And that's the last time I got a sun burn."

Duchebag Lucchino: "Oh John you're so funny!!! And attractive!"
