REDlines: Boredom Has Set In. August 10th

Today’s music video is Paralyzed by Rock Kills Kid.

I’ve now resorted to praying.  Praying for either time to go faster, or for hockey to start.  Sure there’s other things that I probably should be asking the good lord for, like the stock market settling down (don’t panic, think of it as a sale),  Sean Avery actually becoming  model citizen, or Dan Carcillo keeping his mouth shut.  However, as I try to watch baseball, a game that has become glaringly slow, the summer gets longer and longer.  And longer.  I’m sick of watching Big Brother, Hell’s Kitchen is boring, and I can’t remember the last time I watched Sportscenter and paid attention it.  Maybe a long nap till October will do the trick?
