The Monday Melange 03.28.11: Geraldine Ferraro, Cyndi Lauper

Aloysius loves himself some honey.

Aloysius, our Executive Director of Sports Information here at Everyone’s Entitled to Joe’s Opinion, has been a very busy bear lately.  First he took a road trip to Alabama to track down Al from Dadeville, the Auburn tree poisoner, and dispense his own brand of ursine justice.  Then it was off to the NFL owners’ convention to dispense some ursine justice to some people who, for some reason, just can’t seem to figure out how to equitably divide $3-billion-plus in yearly revenue.

No, Aloysius, you do NOT want any of THAT honey. Trust me.

So now, Aloysius is back at the house, kicking back and chilling with some honey.

RIP Geraldine Ferraro.

Lewis Grizzard on Geraldine Ferraro:  “The first time I heard the name Geraldine Ferraro I thought it was Flip Wilson’s sports car.”

–Aloysius has a certain amount of sympathy toward UCLA (the Bruins–understandable, since he is a bear), and by extension the Pac-10.  For this reason, he has expressed concern over a promotional video that the Pac-10 just put out in an attempt to “raise awareness” and “promote its brand” (sorry about the marketing speak) in advance of its expansion to 12 teams.  When Aloysius expresses concern over something, I tend to get a little scared.  He is a bear, after all.  Don’t let that cuddly, loveable teddy bear exterior fool you.  So I suspect that he may soon be off to the West Coast to dispense some ursine justice to the makers of this video:

–Props go out to Cyndi Lauper.

What ever happened to her career?  In one word, “Madonna”.

But if you can get past her crazy hair, you will note that she had an extremely strong voice.  Take a gander at her performing “Change of Heart” and “True Colors” at the 1987 VMA Awards.  Both songs celebrate their 25th anniversary this year.
