McCarver quote of the game:

"I would imagine Sweden would have a very short baseball season, what with the weather up there."

In depth response: Word.

An ugly game but the Sox won so it was almost as entertaining as seeing Ashlee Simpson's career end on SNL when her recorded vocal track started a few seconds too early. She walked off the stage before the show went to an abrupt commercial and later blamed the miscue on her band. Classy. It was funny to see them smirking when it happened.

You saw that, too?

She almost had me believing her story about the band, but to Maggie and to me it looked like she screwed up the lip synching. Why can't musicians just sing their own goddamn songs? Ah, because some of them can't actually sing.

It's not live TV's fault that your microphone is off and you weren't planning to actually sing your song at all.

Now you've got me on a rant. ;)

By those smirks, you have to wonder whether they get along. But whatever happened to "the show must go on?" If the musical guest on SNL weren't jsut a platform for promotion... if it were actual entertainment, she ought to have tried to actually perform. Or, perhaps to let the band continue performing without the vocals, instead of cutting to commercial.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

I saw that too (Ashlee Simpson's mic), that was awesome.

I wonder how many people go on SNL to lip sync.

Of course, if SNL was about entertainment rather than promotion, Ashlee Simpson wouldn't be on there in the first place.
