Today is Tuesday. I just got back from St. Louis, and I was planning to do a ballpark review but I didn't take any pictures. I didn't even eat a hot dog! So I can't truly review it. Busch Stadium is big - I'll leave it at that.

So here are some thoughts I've been kicking around the notebook for quite some time. Most of them don't have anything to do with baseball.

- I went to the Black Keys concert at First Ave a couple of weeks ago. It was awesome! I would write a review, but I didn't take any pictures. I didn't even eat a hot dog! ha. Recently, I was searching for a set list of the show, and came across a really good recording of that same concert. I think I love the internet. If you'd like to legally update your live recordings and bootlegs, you should check out The Ultimate Bootleg Experience.

- The one year anniversary of Alright Hamilton is coming up on May 5th. Wow that's next week. I'm hoping for a very interactive celebration. We definitely need to come up with a name for the celebration, a signature drink, a kick-ass post and maybe some give-aways?

- Invisible cars? Terrible idea.

- The Target Center is getting a Green Roof. Sounds like fun. Well, not that much fun.

- Two funny things that I read everyday: Garfield Minus Garfield and Overheard in Minneapolis. Yeah, a lot of people read those everyday too.

- It seems to me that a lot of people these days are saying, "To each, his own" and "It is what it is" to describe whateverness. While I like the idea of not caring, these sayings are annoying. I prefer, "whatever floats your boat." In a thick Minnesota accent.

- If I started a Jeopardy! blog, it would be the best blog ever.
Oh, second best blog ever.

Phil and Brex, I'll burn you guys a CD of that concert.
Anyone else have anything to add? Thoughts on marioKartWii or GTA4??

I think your signature drink needs to have tequila or Malibu rum.

Hahaha, why do I think "Thoughts on Mario Kart Wii or GTA4??" was directed at me.

Anyway, give me a bit and I will write up a review on both if you want.

I ordered Mario Kart Wii online since I live in Yemin and it hasnt got here yet. Dont spoil it yet.

Am I the only one who thinks GRASS on top of an arena is a bit rediculous.

Mikes signature drink should probably be Pabst Blue Ribbon.

I was at a bar on Saturday night, took a cab to gamestop picked up my Mario Kart and took a cab back to the bar.

gta4 is fun, but they obviously paid IGN to give them a 10 out of 10. IGN never gives out 10 out of 10 and the controls are so jerky and crappy, theres no way it lives up to its hype. It is alot of fun though. Taxi cabs make the game alot less boring. And the music isn't as good as vice city.
