Topps Flopps

Topps has selected its 2005 All-Rookie Baseball team, and guess who is not on it...

Come on, if you're a Phillies fan, you can probably guess...

That's right! NL ROY Ryan Howard. In his place, unanimous selection Dan Johnson of the Oakland A's.

I might be willing to buy the selection of Johnson in a close vote, but as a unanimous pick... well, I get the feeling that the idiots at Topps have been inhaling the fumes from the Bazooka plant a little too long.

(By the way, as far as I can tell, Rob Tejeda got no love from Topps either. Both the pitchers on the team were also unanimous selections.)

In celebration of Topps's stupidity, later today I finally will get off my ass and start Friday Phillies baseball card blogging as promised, and will begin with another great moment of Topps stupidity.

MP3 Player Meme

(gakked from many)

Step 1: Get your playlist together, put it on random, and play.
Step 2: Write down the first line from the first 20 songs that play or close to it.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song the lines come from.
Step 4: Cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly.

I've taken a couple liberties when doing this. I eliminated children's music that popped up, because that stuff is on the iPod for Tank (mostly). I also eliminated most songs where the title was in the first line, and in some instances I included the second line if the first was really short. Otherwise, I left it intact. Anyway, here's the list
