I was watching Cops last night, and as usual I was surprised at how overzealous the cops get.
I saw one guy get pulled over for bicycling at night with no headlights. Is this a law? Headlights on a bicycle? The same guy, while he was being searched, started shouting, "Please don't rob me, officer!" as the cop was going through his pockets. Ha.
Then a couple was smoking crack in a parked pickup truck. The cop flings the driver's side door wide open and POINTS AN ENORMOUS HANDGUN at the crackheads. "PUT YOUR HANDS UP!!!" I'm surprised neither of them had a stroke. I mean, they're smoking crack. My defense of these people of course means I'm pro-crack.
I also watched Red Sox This Week with Dan Roche. Trot Nixon and his wife won some kind of Outstanding Acheivement in the Field of Excellence award. Nixon was wearing a suit but his head looked like it'd just appeared from under a filthy, tarry ballcap. It was kind of funny. Funny and sad.
I like The Amazing Race, too.
I spend a lot of time at work trying to engage my co-workers in baseball conversation. Recently, we were talking about our favorite all-time baseball players. Nolan Ryan and such.
My favorite all-time? Pedro Martinez. What a great choice.
