Verizon Commercial Music

Has anyone else noticed that at the end of most Verizon Wireless commercials, the music sounds an awful lot like the music from The Office ‘Local Ad’ commercial (not the one Michael made, but the corporate Big Box one)????

Wii, Playstation, Save Game Progress – Annoying

Recently I picked up Tiger Woods 09 for Wii.  Here is my interaction every time I go to save my progress:

Wii:  “Do you want to save Now?”

Me:  “Yes”

Wii: “User Steve already exists.  Do you want to overwrite?”

Me: “Yes”

Wii: “Are you sure?”

Me: “Yes”

Wii:  “Saving.  Do not turn off power or hit reset.”

Wii: “Save Complete”

Me: “OK”

After five dialog boxes I finally have saved my progress and can interact with the menu again.  What a pain.

How is it not raining?

This system has moved from the southwest across the Detroit metro area since about 1 today (it’s now 5:15). There hasn’t been a moment where the red dot was not covered by green on the radar screen. How is it not raining?

Baseball Solves the 2009 Recession?

“. . . America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It’s been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball . . . “. Here’s hoping that the 2009 baseball season can see us out of the erasing and into the next rebuild.
