Baba Booey, a.k.a. Gary Dell’Abate Throws Like a Girl

Baba Booey, a.k.a. Gary Dell’Abate got the chance of a lifetime, the dream of baseball fans everywhere, to throw out the first pitch at a baseball game.  Gary’s dream came true before a New York Mets game, and much to the delight of Howard Stern fans everywhere, Baba Booey threw like a girl.  YouTube has pulled the video – here’s a link to the MLB version.

Susan, Simon, and Oprah – A Threesome?

It’s a threesome I’m wondering if anyone wants to see, but Susan Boyle and Simon Cowell will both be on Oprah.  The show is slated to air on May 11th and is titled “The World’s Got Talent.”  Will Simon stay on “American Idol?”; Will we care what Susan Boyle’s house looks like?; Will Oprah give away more KFC people can’t get?  Some of those questions might be answered.

Will Brett Favre Un-Retire Again?

Bear fans kept sort of hoping, in a weird Chicago way, that somehow Brett Favre would end up in a Bear’s jersey, although not now that they have Jay Cutler they don’t care.  Now the arrows are pointing that Mr. Favre might end up a Minnesota Viking – That is if he un-retires again, which of course would never happen, right?

RIP: Danny Gans

I never caught Danny Gans‘ show the couple of times I was in Las Vegas, mostly I suppose becuase I don’t care for impressionists much, but he seemed to make a lot of people smile.  And 52 years old is too young.

Adam Lambert on Idol – Almost Gone?

Matt Giraud being sent home on “American Idol” wasn’t really a surprise, except to, well, maybe Simon, but the big news of the evening was that weekly favorite, Adam Lambert, was in the final two of people who didn’t get votes.  Adam lived to sing another week, but it’s probably a wake-up call to his fans to not give up the fight.

Go Ahead – Show Your Underwear!

A town in Florida passed an ordinance that if you wore pants, well, they couldn’t be slung so low as to show your butt or dirty drawers.  Guess what?  A Judge said that’s unconstitutional.  Saggy Pants‘ wearers, I think you need to take a road trip to Riviera Beach!

You Spend A Million and Get Bright Lights – Waaaah!

So you spend about a million bucks for a condo in the new Trump Tower in Chicago and you complain because the office building next door leaves their lights on. In the word of Artie Lange: “Waaaahhhhh!” In the words of me: Spend a few bucks on some nice window treatments, a.k.a. blinds.

Blago Won’t Be Getting Out of Here

A judge crushed the hopes and dreams of Rod Blagojovich, NBC, and millions of people who wanted to see if the humidity would play havoc with The Gov’s hair when he said the Ex-Illinois Governor couldn’t be on “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.” Bummer.

Julie Chen Won’t Give Birth on Big Brother. :-(

Julie Chen, who’s married to Les Moonves over on the CBS network, and is also on The Early Show, is pregnant.  Looks like Les’ little swimmers went the distance.  Congrats!

Depeche Mode is Still Around – Who Knew?

I saw Depeche Mode many moons ago as part of a radio festival, and then I thought they fell off of the face of the Earth.  Oh yea, I guess they sort of had a hit a few years ago.  Guess what?  They’re in Lollapalooza this year.  Get your tickets now!
