Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
Watching the 60 Minutes Interview of Jose Canseco, there was one part in which I completely believed him. It was when he refuted the Mike Wallace's idea that roid rage was behind much of his despicable behavior, as Jose said there are plenty of people who act like jerks, without using steroids. My guess is Canseco would be an asshole if all he was popping was a daily vitamin.
Didn't see much of the Grammy's, but I will say the highlight from what I caught had to be when Green Day hit the stage, with a performance that created energy in even that stale setting. It was funny to me that they had followed the whole Southern Rock tribute, featuring a bunch of watered down current Country "musicians" doing some kareoke with the third rate brother, Johnny Van Zant from Lynyrd Skynyrd. The classic irony was that in the song "American Idiot", Green Day spewed that they are "not part of a redneck agenda". Hmmm.
I Love Ray Charles, but it was your typical posthumous celebration of someone, who should have won more Grammy's during his greatest period in the late 50's and early 60's, not for the duets thing his last release was. I'm not a John Mayer hater, but his second album is not good and "Daughter" should not be song of the year. Overall, though it was a pretty fair year for the Grammy awards, since Kanye West, U-2, Loretta Lynn, Alicia Keys, and Green Day were deserving winners.
If you're not watching Arreseted Development on Fox, what are you waiting for? Last night, added to the great ensemble cast, was Martin Short playing a Jack LaLanne character, who had lost the use of his legs in a lifting incident. Great stuff, as I've mentioned before.
