Nothing to See Here…

The title of this video is “2 Lucky Guys Avoid Car Crash”, but I don’t think that captures the essence of what transpired. I suggest “2 Selfish Assholes Avoid Car Crash, Display Confounding Nonchalance, Avoid what was Undoubtedly the Swift Justice of Karma”

Rest Easy, America: The John Rocker Memoir is Here

John Rocker is publishing a memoir called John Rocker: Scars and Stripes, and he still has a way with words:

I died on a Sunday evening. Now of course I didn’t die in the literal sense that day, but I might as well have. Technically, I’m still breathing and the soulless shell that is my body continues to walk around upright appearing to be intact. Make no mistake about it, however, everything inside of me that day, everything I worked a lifetime to become, who I was at the core of my being, which took more than a decade to create, was laid to waste in one fell blow all for the sake of selling a few @#%&ing magazines.

Surfs Up…Up…Up
