    Three sentences in and I'm laughing.

    So, any chance they'll also put his columns on the MCT wire?

    The column is worthless without a recent, non-blurry picture of the Daughter Who Can’t Get A Date, along with a cell number just in case she does in fact rate a 6 or higher on the RickStain Would scale.

    "To everyone else, and keep this in mind when you get ready to complain to Register management, I’m on Page 2."

    That really got you, eh?

    I normally don't care about college basketball until February, but I can't wait until Alford's first press conference.

    I have to say I laughed pretty good at this:

    Doctors thought I suffered a stroke in spring training when Mike Scioscia told me Joe Blanton would be in the Angels’ rotation. Turns out it was something called a complex migraine syndrome, or in technical medical terms: Blantonitis.

    It was also pretty interesting that he said the Times issued a directive not to be so mean to Frank McCourt. I assume that is an overly TJ-friendly interpretation, but I would like to hear something from inside the Times about the McCourt policy since it is well known that one of their sniveling toad managers is a good friend of Frank's.

    I can't wait for his first "why-are-you-mad-I'm-just-asking-questions" column.
