Apparently we’re not allowed to acknowledge that Braun did steroids. We just have to mention a “complicated legacy” and a “derailed” career. What a joke.

At least they didn't cover it up with a winking "rice and beans"

The first one was just a ranging shot. The second one was hamburger helper.

I have some thoughts.

Whenever I see Safeco I think about Ichiro. It’s Pavlovian. See Safeco, think Ichiro. This is true even though it is not called Safeco anymore. As far as I know Ichiro is still called Ichiro. I think I if my name were Ichiro I would never change it. So I don’t think he will either. I think that it is good that ballplayers change their names less frequently than ballparks.

It is a little weird that I always think of Ichiro when I see Safeco. Junior is the one I should think about. Or Edgar Martinez or Big Unit or Jay Beunher or even ARod. But it is Ichiro.

Also, I don’t understand advertising. Like, does this happen:

Joe: Did you get us mustard.

Bill: Ahh, fuck, no I forgot again.

Joe: Don’t worry about it.

Bill: You know what, Joe?

Joe: What Bill?

Bill: I think I’m going to buy a fucking Boeing.

Joe: Which one?

Bill: One of the ones with some 7s in the name.
