The Texas Rangers are probably the best team in baseball, and that is, in large part, because they are also the smartest. Nolan Ryan took a gamble today, and it's the best kind of gamble: one that doesn't cost a lot of money and one with a good probability of delivering some dividends. Roy Oswalt i ... More >>

I thought I was just going for a couple of simple surgeries. But a bunion blog reports that it actually couldn't have been more major. According to the link, bunion surgery can be "painful and potentially lead to recurrence, infection, or over correction (which is not pretty)."

Congrats, New Yorkers! Along with being the coolest, the smartest, and perhaps the most cynical and jaded interestingly beautiful folks around (that's a compliment), we also have the best knees, Crain's reports. Uh huh, that's right. (Hey, take a picture -- it'll last longer.)
Cant hardly wait to see this band
Mama's taking off this week! I've got to tend to my bunions, catch up on my reading (The Globe and various word puzzle books), and idly sit around watching Obama plummet in the polls. So don't say I'm not busy! I can barely squeeze all this activity into just seven days! And it's not like I didn't w ... More >>
