- Paris Hilton going to jail. Good grief, has there ever been more ink spilled on a meaningless story than this one? Seriously, can somebody give me one good reason she’s famous? (And no, “those” videos don’t count!)
- Roger Clemens. I swear, every time I surf over to ESPN, we’re getting a breaking update on Roger Clemens. “Today, Roger Clemens had a cheeseburger for lunch! How will this affect his return to the Yankees starting rotation?” While some of you may say this has to do with my lack of fandom for the Yankees, I can honestly say I wouldn’t care which team Clemens was playing for….I’m sick of hearing about it. Why we have to devote five minutes of every SportsCenter to this stupidity and then only have three seconds to cover the Women’s College World Series is beyond me. Seriously, can’t we actually have some coverage of athletes actually playing a game?!?
- Election 2008. A few days ago, a friend asked me if I was excited about any of the presidential candidates and I had to honestly reply I wasn’t. It’s not that I don’t care about this, but seriously guys, it’s so flippin’ early. I thought the NFL pre-season started early, but this is giving it a run for the money. And we’ve still got a long way to go on this. (In case you were wondering, I was asked about my choice on who I’d vote for if the election were held today and I hold fast to my write-in campaign for Picard/Riker ’08.)
- Anything involving Lindsey Lohan. She’s a good actress, but damn her life is out of control. Just leave the girl alone, people.
