Rock Cats have more wins than someone else in the league!

Excited by cheese

After last night's 8-5 win in Binghamton, the forever-stuck-in-last-place New Britain Rock Cats now have a tidy 3-game win streak, and have more wins on the season than Binghamton, 43 to 42.

Of course, the Rock Cats have out-lost Binghamton, 54 to 50 (Yes, "out-lost" is a word! Just because you don't know about it!), so the Rock Cats still trail the B-Mets by a game and a half with the worst won-loss record in the Eastern League.

3 Signs That The Apocalypse Is Finally Upon Us:

Spit Respectable It's 1983 all over again

1. I was reading Chronic Disorder's web site, and I find out that right now they're in the middle of recording a new album.
2. I was reading Chronic Disorder's web site.
3. Chronic Disorder has a web site.

Even more frivolous web surfing led to my finding, through mentions on a couple of blogs, that back issues of the original Punk magazine ('76-'79) are available to be read on-line. To me, stuff like "Do-It-Yourself Sixties Protest Song" and "PUNK Reviews" is frickin' hilarious. Maybe not as hilarious as Kenny Rogers yelling at yet another cameraman, but still.

Oh, look: After homering in 6 straight games in Double-A earlier this year, Pirate farmhand Brad Eldred now has 8 home runs in his last 9 games for Triple-A Indianapolis (International League).

Thur. 7/21
Eldred's power surge continued as he hit two more homers yesterday. Meanwhile, shortstop Brandon Wood, playing for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes (the Angels' high Class A affiliate), belted two homers yesterday also, giving him 33 HRs on the season.

I know homers aren't everything, but they sure are fun to watch...

Brad Eldred was called up to the majors after Thursday night's game.

it's 1984 all over again -- that cover was from 'Fred', 1983 was the debut/untitled EP.

You wouldn't happen to know Brian Lombardo do you? We're re-recording a song that co-wrote together back in the 80s, and I was thinking of giving a heads-up.

...Spit man and the masters of the universe...

Sorry, I don't know Brian Lombardo, so I can't help you with that. Thanks for the clarification, though ('83, '84-- how could I have missed that?). If I still had a copy of "Fred", I might've checked first.

Hey, you left the "Make It Work" compilation 7" off of the discography on your web site! Can't I get credit for anything around here?

Spread the word: has been updated, so that the "Make It Work" compilation is now listed in the band's discography. Represent!!

Thanks, Spit!

Oh, by the way-- if you click on the link in the above comment for the "Make It Work" compilation, then click on "Vatican Commandos", the first guy you see (playing guitar and somewhat facing the camera) is Moby! (With hair!)
