BS

On Tuesday night, Pirates closer Salomon Torres blew the save, which paved the way to the Cardinals’ extra innings win over the Pirates.  On Wednesday, Torres gave up the game-winning hit, to seal the Cardinals’ sweep of the Pirates.  In addition, by the end of Tuesday’s game, Adam LaRoche’s batting average had fallen back below .100.  The fact that Torres isn’t looking sharp coupled with LaRoche’s struggles at the plate is making the Adam LaRoche for Mike Gonzalez trade look worse every day.  After a hot start, the Pirates have lost 5 out of their last 6.  With Wednesday’s loss, they drop below .500 for the first time this season.  Unless they get their offense going (e.g. more than 2 runs/game), things may only get worse.

Tax Rap

I saw this in the Boston Metro (a free newspaper distributed at public transit stations). TurboTax is sponsoring a competition where people rap about taxes and using TurboTax. The contest is “hosted” by Vanilla Ice and involves a $25,000 prize for the winner. Anyway, I took a look at some of the submissions and some of them are painful to watch. However, there are some that are really good. In the Metro article, they recommended “Keep Your Refund FATTER” by 401Cakes & Samuel L. Taxin’. I think it’s really good, so take a look:

If you want to peruse all the entries, look here. If you want to see the contest home page, check here. Some of the stuff is really good, but don’t be surprised if you find something that is both embarrassing and painful to watch. You’ve been warned.
