Pardon Me For One Second

Ok, you don't care about my life, but for the record, I recently borrowed my wife's car and drove to Gaithersburg, which is like halfway to Canada, and it took me 44 minutes door-to-door, and then today because my car continues to have been stolen, I took a D.C. public bus three miles down Georgia Avenue to try to go to the Wizards' draft-prospect workouts, and it took me 49 minutes door-to-door. That's why people don't take public transportation in this country.

And something else that bothers me: "Mike and Mike in the Morning" are claiming to have added a new word to the baseball lexicon: "ridonculous," as in filthy. This is bothering me more than words can express. First of all, basic Googling should reveal that the proper spelling is "redonkulous." Secondly, Deuce of Davenport has a "Mustafa Redonkulous," and then there's the Redonkulous Linker, and any time there are at least two sports bloggers with the same word in their blogging name, it's probably a bit past the time where you should be taking credit for adding that word to any lexicon, baseball or otherwise.

Mike and Mike were quite nice to me during their Spelling Bee coverge, but this strikes me as very much in keeping with the "ESPN has learned" motto. Next week, sources indicate, the Four Letter will learn that "The Sopranos" has ended.
