Save (A Piece Of) Yankee Stadium

Yankee Stadium Gate 2

Read on Yahoo! about this project to help preserve a tiny piece of the old Yankee Stadium. I think it's a great idea.

Why completely erase the old stadium from memory? Retaining the one gate from this hallowed ballpark would honor it without ruining the city's plan for park space.

Check it out.

Please, city of New York, don't pave paradise and put up a parking lot.

Ch.. Ch.. Ch.. Changes

You may notice the blog had a bit of a facelift today. Hopefully it'll be easier to read and easier to navigate. Don't worry, it's still a proud member of the Ad-free internet, though I've added a link to the page on Amazon where you can buy this blog to put on your portable Kindle device. So you know, you can read this brilliant stuff anywhere.

I've also added three check boxes to the bottom of every post, so you can immediately rate each article with a "Haha!" a "Wow!" or an "Aww...", depending on how the story made you feel.

Happy Reading!
Something's Fishy About PETA

PETA believes fish are our friends (they also believe that humans should eat only artificially derived vitamins and water, and anyone eating any kind of meat is as bad as the Unabomber). So, to get people to stop eating fish, PETA is trying to rename our finned pals to something people wouldn't find appetizing. While I maintain that "Poopy Stinkfins" would do the trick, Peta came up with, admittedly, a cuter moniker:

"Sea Kittens."

Create Your Own Sea Kitten at!

Above is the "Sea Kitten" I made on Peta's site. His name is Martin Mahi, and he likes to go to bar mitzvahs, where he shows off his rad dance moves and astonishing limbo skills. He also likes long swims at the beach, moonlight plankton dinners, and watching Sex and the City re-runs.
