A couple of things have hit me the last week of so. First off the people I work with are pissed that Shawn Johnson did not won a gold medal in the all around or floor exercise. One of the women has been screaming racism and sexism, which I think is odd but if this woman was not bitching she would not be happy. I put the blame on the Iowa State Fair and the Des Moines Register , they cast her as a butter sculpture for the state fair. People in Iowa love the state fair, it is their celebration of the mediocrity that is Iowa. I've lived in Iowa for four years and people here are shocked I've never been to the state fair. It just does not seem appealing to me.
The White Sox are a game up on the Twins! The Twins got to Anaheim to face the Angels later this week and then they will have another road trip while the Republican Convention is in Minneapolis so hopefully this will be the beginning of the end for them.
The Bears have named Kyle Orton as their starting QB. As a Purdue Alumnus I feel like I should back Orton but I think he is going to get killed behind this revolving door of an offensive line. No quarterback will thrive under those conditions.
