Today is my younger brother's 29th birthday. Not only does this mean that he is getting old, it means that I am getting older. I still remember vividly pictures of us when we were younger like the one above, and I remember kicking his ass something terrible at all sports(except Double Dribble), and I also remember the countless fights we got into. So it is still hard to wrap my mind around the concept that he is now married, with child and 29. So happy birthday to you baby brother. Hopefully your 29th year will bring you much needed facial hair.

I know I have mentioned this many times in my blog, but I think this particular issue of Barry Bonds is worth yet another issue. The media is KILLING him for taking performance enhancing drugs, as if this is the only reason why he is great, and as if he is the only one out there who did it. The ONLY reason why his name is tossed around, is that someone illegally leaked grand jury testimony where he said he "accidentally" took something. Now I don't believe for one minute that he accidentally took anything, but I damn sure don't think he should be as vilified as he is everyday. Now Bonds certainly doesn't help his case with his bad attitude(which I respect to some degree), and he definitely doesn't help things when he curses and then tells the media to go away. But that's part of sports, and people get angry after games all the time. And if it sounds like I'm a Barry Bonds apologist, then so be it. The man is a great player, he probably took some kind of substance that made me greater, but shouldn't change much. It is really getting annoying to see the media just make him out to be a wife beater or something like that. I'm off the soapbox now.

No intern stories today. Well he did tell me a TMI story yesterday about how he almost got a girl pregnant..but other than that all is quiet.

Think About It - Snoop Dogg
I don't think I've ever heard Snoop flow this well..and he doesn't even spell his name 67 times in one song like he usually does.

Okay I don't know much about baseball. But hasn't Barry Bond beaten some white man's record in the game???? Now they want to say he really couldn't beat that record without performance enhancing drugs?? Give me a break. Now if my non-sports playing ass took the drug and could all off a sudden hit one out the park, that would be a justifiable call to controversy. LOL Just trying to keep the black man down. I would curse the media out too. LOL
