Is It Just Me?

You may not be aware of it, but I am a very deep thinker. Really, I am. The littlest thing can get the wheels turning in this over-sized melon of mine. It doesn’t take much. Sometimes, after pontificating on particular subject, I will wonder if I am the only person who thinks the way that I do about it. Do others feel similarly about a certain thing or is it just me? 

For instance:

Is it just me or do others notice that people who ask you how you are, really aren’t interested in the least?

Is it just me or has the “D” or “R” behind a politician’s name become more important than where they stand on specific issues?

Is it just me or does it seem that most people who enjoy discussing wars, past or present, have never fought in one?

Is it just me that thinks that Match Game was far and away, the greatest game show ever made?

Is it just me or do men appreciate the brilliance of the Three Stooges much more than women?

Is it just me that feels that the new Cubs’ radio analyst, Keith Moreland, is failing miserably because he is trying way too hard to become the next Ron Santo?

Is it just me who cringes whenever someone says, “I could care less” when they should be saying, “I couldn’t care less”?

Is it just me or was the Boston Bruins first Stanley Cup championship in forty years overshadowed by a bunch of moronic thugs starting riots in Vancouver?

Is it just me that is perplexed when the same people that complain about how much professional athletes make have no problem when “entertainers” such as Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa earn $20 million and $7 million respectively each year for co-hosting their morning talk show?

Is it just me who realizes that there is no such word as “irregardless”?

Is it just me or did the fact that the Dallas Mavericks won their first ever NBA championship get pushed aside by the media because they were occupied covering the vitriol being directed at LeBron James and the Miami Heat?

Is it just me or is it strange that Chicago Cub fans living in Wisconsin have hate directed toward the Chicago White Sox?

Is it just me that prefers Tyler Florence to Bobby Flay when it comes to TV chefs?

Is it just me that thinks Kathy Griffin was never funny, not even with her recent abundance of physical enhancements?

Is it just me or have others noticed that people that make a point of letting everyone know how wonderful they are, usually aren’t?

I told you that I was a deep thinker. Feel free to give me your answers to any or all of these momentous questions. Before you click away, please take a moment to give your opinion on my latest poll if you haven’t already done so.

Until next time…from the booth.

Irregardless bother me, too. But I like it when my sons make up words. I overheard Justin telling Matthew not to be "arguous". We've adopted that word into our daily usage.

LOL! That is very good, Julie. I remember when we were kids, my sister would tell us, "leave alone me!" when me and my brothers would tease her.

It's you.

Hahaha! I couldn't resist that. Lemme see here...
Cub fans...ah yes, we do not love the Sox. So, no that's not just you. It's that Northside/Southside thing that permeates even up here. But hey, I used to live right near Wrigley so I AM a Northsider! GO CUBBIES!!

The Three Stooges...well, you know where I stand on these goofs. They are UNfunny to the female persuasion. Even in small doses...they fail to get a laugh.

On the other hand, I think Kathy Griffin is hilarious! So, maybe that's just me! LOL

Mary Beth, you get special dispensation because you lived in Chicago.

The blog that I posted today shows that there are some women who "get" the Stooges.

Now as far as Kathy Griffith goes…
