Boffo vs. Da' Bums Week Three - Shrek Swings, Blue Bores

Apoligies to all the Boffo vs Da' Bum addicts for my releasing this to the world wide internet so late. I was slowed down by last night's The Sopranos, during which I actually got depressed at our future without it. Further complicating matters was one of Delino's greatest mistakes - The Shrek Minty Mudd Bath Shake (438 Calories, 88g Carbs). Formerly known as the Shamrock Shake, the brains behind the McDLT have made it much more compatible with the Shrek franchise. A darker, more pukish hue of green. Dairy content below one percent. And like the second Shrek film, I feel both woozy and resentful.

As I struggle to keep my internal organs working, I'll fill you in on this weekend's box office results. Simply put, Shrek made Rodriguez bucks, while the Dodgers were hovering at Jason Phillips nickels. Three games. Four runs. Apparently interleague play inspired the Dodgers to do their best Kansas City Royals imitation.

It's not much of an imitation, then. The Royals are 6-4 over their last ten games, and won their interleague series against Colorado; the Dodgers are 5-5, and, well, you know what happened over the weekend.

By the by, the chardonnay was very tasty.

I'd argue that the Royals did a bad Royals imitation.

Nice Photoshop!

It is a Photoshop, right?

I like the Dodgers' strategy - don't use up your runs scored on a weekend Shrek will clobber you anyways. And nice photo - Shrek has a huge strike zone.

With four runs, the Dodgers couldn't even have beaten Music and Lyrics. Or even the Lyrics part on its own. Pathetic.

Rob, congrats on the sweep, but next time I hope there's a black fly in the Angels' chardonnay.
