I Will Miss Helen Thomas

Okay, so I’m about to wade into some dangerous waters here, especially since I’m not exactly an expert on Israeli/Palestinian issues, but hey, maybe my six readers will go easy on me. Helen Thomas said a terrible thing. Telling the Israelis to get the hell out of Palestine is, no other way to describe it, [...]

Oh, You’re SOOOOOOOO Persecuted

Some of you may have heard that the whole sexual abuse scandal has reared its ugly head again for the Catholic Church. It turns out that the current Pope himself, back when he was just a measly cardinal, mishandled a specific case including one priest who abused more than 200 deaf children. “Protect the church [...]

A Day in Bed!

I’m spending most of today in bed, B&E; readers, for sicky, not sexy, reasons. I’ve got those symptoms. I’m really pulling for swine flu, but I suspect it’s just a cold. Anyway, I hope to write more again soon. I’ve been a bit lax on the B&E; front. I prostrate myself before you and beg [...]

Turning the Frown Upside-Down

Oh, Fred Phelps… Your hatred knows no bounds. Well, maybe some bounds. Most of the bounds seem to be gays and Jews. Yes, I’ve written about dear Fred before, he of the God Hates Fags movement. Well, recently, Fred and the Westboro Baptist Church (a.k.a. the Phelps Family Singers) have recently been saving some of [...]

Trouble During the Sabbath

A curious thing happened on the way home from another delicious meal at the missus and my favorite local haunt… A hefty fellow wearing a yarmulke was seated seemingly comfortably in the middle of a crosswalk on a small residential intersection. It had rained a little, so his ass must’ve been getting wet. Nearby, a [...]

Christmas Is to Blame

They look like us, they speak like us, but Canada’s like a foreign country up there. I can’t say I understand exactly what he did, but Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper of the Conservative Party has managed to piss off the rest of the opposition political parties so much that three of them have gotten [...]

Mets – An Off-Season Update

With all the Obama excitement, or “Obitement” as the kids like to call it, you three faithful B&E; readers may have thought that I’d forgotten about my beloved, hapless New York Metropolitan Baseball Club. Alas, I have not. The first no-brainer of the off-season was picking up the option on Carlos Delgado’s contract for another [...]

Happy New Year

To my Jewish reader(s) I’d like to wish a very happy 5769. As French singer/lover Serge Gainsbourg might say, “Bon Annee Erotique!” If you have any leftover brisket, I’d like some.

Jewish Ballplayers. Up Yours, Mel.

Hilary was correct when she said this video combined three of my favorite topics: baseball, Mel Gibson, and Jews. I hope it pleases you, too. Thanks, Hil.

A Whole Lotta Carlos

walk off Originally uploaded by dangunderman. It’s been weeks since I’ve discussed politics or baseball. So let me address the more important of the two first: baseball. I took another trip to Shea last night and witnessed what might have been the best game I’ve ever seen live. The Mets were being personally pounded by [...]
