Float like a Butterfly....

Tonight at dinner, Rakes started chanting the following:

"I'm the Host... With the Most"

He then did some weird musical interlude before repeating that over and over.

I'm not sure if it's some Disney channel song or he's just channeling his inner Ali.

Who knew I had a miniature version of Don King on my hands?

Only in America.

You certainly have live-in entertainment. LOL!

Byt the way, if my word verification were any longer, it would actually be the entire alphabet. Sheesh.

Ted D said...

Dawn, it's never dull. ;)

Sorry 'bout the word verification. I may take it down soon. That mass spam I got from that one guy the other week just hacked me off.

Christine E. said...

Evening everyone:

Kids either crack you up--or make you crazy--some days both at the same time...that sounds VERY familar tho...:-)

ho....hum.....no baseball...

Having this teaser of two games and then NUTHIN..really really sucks...

Hope all is well!

Tree Newt said...

Don King, huh?

Does he was his hands BEFORE going to the restroom, too?

And I second Dawn on this. Take the word verification down PUUUUHLEASE!

Ted D said...

Christine,

Crack you up or make you crazy; it's really one and the same. ;)

I'm REALLY hoping I get the game on NESN Sat night, just to tide me over.

DirecTV is already charging me for Xtra Innings. I really SHOULD have some stinking baseball to watch.

~**Dawn**~ said...

Oh I have no right to complain about you having it up. I have it on mine for the very same reason. And it's been that way for as long as it's been an option. I just hate when I get one that's 87 letters long when 4 or 5 letters is sufficient. =P

Ted D said...

Newt, we must have been posting at the same time.

And yes.

He does.

::goes off to remove verification, contingent on the fact some other blog pimper decides to spam me::

Ted D said...

::reconsiders::

Ted D said...

It's changed.

But if that blog pimp shows back up?

All bets are off.

~**Dawn**~ said...

OMG... you didn't even have it down for a second & you got spammed. That happens to me every.single.time I try to remove mine.

Ted D said...

Do you see what I mean?

It's back on.

Ted D said...

Thank you, Dawn.

And fenridal.

May a Josh Beckett fastball find your earhole in the VERY near future.

Followed by a Jonathan Papelbon pitch right where the sun don't shine.

Tree Newt said...

Dude, how is that guys doing that?!!! That is insane! Thanks for ruining it for the rest of us, pally!

Christine E. said...

Ahem...BLOG PIMP???

LOL--as I pick myself up off the floor

I wrote a review on your blog over at Red Sox 100..;-)

Holy buckets! you have the Word verification up again? What was it down for 9 seconds???? LOL

Ted D said...

Mattie, no clue.

I had JUST took the word verification off when fenridal (I'm pretty sure that's not his REAL name) did that.

Peckerwood.

Christine, thanks for the review. I hope it's good! 9 seconds may be on the long side; that dink did it almost immediately. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I ain't dealing with that crap all the time.

Ted D said...

What did that idiot do? (finerwhatshisface. Not you Christine)

I've got 150 hits on that Red Sox blog site thing.

If I have to delete this and start over, I'm gonna flip my lid.

~**Dawn**~ said...

What are you deleting & why???

Ted D said...

This blog, Dawn.

Granted, I understand the interwebs about as much as I do my wife, but something is hinky when you go from 40 hits a day to 154 in the span of 20 minutes.

Mattie, I blame you and your whining for all of this!

~**Dawn**~ said...

I am a firm believer in not acting rashly. Maybe just a freak occurance. And if not, so what? The hits arent hurting anything. They aren't spam comments right? =) Just delete that spam comment & try not to stress out.

Ted D said...

I worry about my kids more than anything, Dawn.

It's just weird how it happened.

I'll be keeping my eye out, just in case.

JMP said...

Fried Spam...YUM!!!!

Lugo's breakfast favorite!!!

~**Dawn**~ said...

I understand. You could always change the address to your blog. That way you wouldn't lose everything you've done so far. And people would still be able to visit you because your comments you leave would link back to your blog, regardless of address. I would start with deleting the spam comment & see if it doesn't ease up over night at least.

Tex said...

good lord. Ted what kind of freaks are you entertaining?

Ted D said...

Wassup JMP!

I'll delete fernildinkish's comment right after I leave this.

Hey Tex! Who knows? You'd think I'd be the last place the freaks would go.

Krystle [RSO] said...

Oh Rakes, he makes me laugh for so early in the morning.

Oh and sad news as Big Trot has been cut by the Big League team. Hopefully he finds a big league team that wants him. Even sadder news is that NH got almost 5 inches of snow and that makes it 9 snow days =[.

Ted D said...

Glad Rakes could provide you some laughs, Krystle. He's a mess.

Sad to hear about Big Trot; wonder if this is the end of the road for him or if he can catch on somewhere else.

And sorry for the snow; it's got to get old after awhile.

Beth said...

What I love is that you always keep your sense of humor, Ted. But with three active ones, I guess you have to!

Hadn't heard about big Trot...

Krystle [RSO] said...

Trot probably has a job lined up with either the Red Sox brass or NESN. It just wouldn't be right.

It's getting old. The school is considering taking away April break away from us or making us go to school on Saturdays. Not good.

~**Dawn**~ said...

Oh my Lord. Could you imagine Trot filling Tina Cervasio's vacated spot? LOL!

Krystle [RSO] said...

Dawn - look at it this way. He would be better than her. Wait, everyone could be better =]!

Ted D said...

You gotta laugh, Beth. If not they'll make you crazy. ;)

Krystle, I'd love to see Trot back in some capacity, but I really hope he can get a job playing somewhere. And sorry about the snow.

Dawn, as classic as that would be, with NESN's past history it'll be a woman I'm guessing.

Edge of Design said...

What is the advantage to having the word verification? I'm not all that sure I understand the concept. Would you mind explaining it? Thanks Ted!

Ted D said...

Edge, I didn't have it on and a little while back I got spammed one night by the same person about 15 times in 20 minutes. Something about if you have it up it makes it harder for somebody to mass spam several blogger sites at once.

I took it off last night and within seconds this guy spammed me, so I put it back.

Apologies for the inconvenience to anybody.

~**Dawn**~ said...

Edge: How word verification works is that it gives you random sets of letters that make it impossible for someone to create a spamming bot that makes them post useless nonsense all over people's blog comments. The bots can't guess the letters so the spam doesn't work. And it's inefficient for a spammer to literally post those grabage messages one at a time. So they hit up blogs that are not protected by word verification which forces an actual human to verify that it is indeed leaving a comment. =)

Ted: Did the hits slow down? And no worries about the verification. I have found that the people who love me still comment, even with it being there. =)

Ted D said...

Or what Dawn said Edge! Very nicely done, Dawn!

Yes, the hits slowed down. Problem wasn't with the hits it was how fast they were coming and I had no clue where they were from. Guess I could go back and try to find out.

~**Dawn**~ said...

You know what I am thinking it was? I think it was the spam bot. It had your blog address & one got through in that 2.7 seconds word verification was deactivated, so it kept trying over & over again after that. Good thing you put it back up! LOL! That would be a lot of spam to delete.

Ted D said...

Dawn, I bet you're right. Man, I'm glad I put it right back on.

Ted D said...

Get this, I just got an email from earthlink asking for my email, id, and password.

Needless to say I called and it's fake. That word verification isn't coming off.

~**Dawn**~ said...

And you know it's probably some stupid 14 year old kid who is too smart for his own good & has nothing better to do. Someone needs to give that kid a ball & a glove and shove him outside to play.

Krystle [RSO] said...

Jeez Ted, what's with the spammers? You must be one popular guy now.

Myspace is the same way, they do whatever it takes to prevent spammers. weird.

Ted D said...

Dawn you're probably right; some bored kid with nothing better to do. I just get a little leery with stuff like that since I post pictures of the kids.

Krystle, no Myspace or Facebook. I think I signed up for them both, but never got around to doing anything. Not enough hours in the day.

I'm just messin' with ya Ted. But you are going down in fantasy baseball!

Ted D said...

Stephen, don't mess with me like that, man! Freaking spammers.

As for the Fantasy league, I'm now in TWO. One with Dawn and some others and the SG league. As if I don't spend enough time on the computer already.

The Raging Munchkins will be the Bad News Bears of the league. And as long as I beat Miles I'm good.

Edge of Design said...

Thanks for the explanation Ted and Dawn. I honestly didn't know what that feature was there for other than to annoy bloggers. Now I know! I'm going to put it on mine.

Ted D said...

No problem, Edge. And Dawn was much more clear than me!

~**Dawn**~ said...

I totally get it, Ted. So... you're going to lose in TWO leagues now, huh? ;-)
