Maybe she thought it was like in football, where all the cool people spike the ball?

I love how this clip seems to play into those spoof commercials she’s been doing for MTV. I love how Mariah’s line between what’s “real” and what’s “performance” has become so blurred, yet not in a scary, crazy, out-of-control Britney Spears kind of way—oh no. No, Mariah is driving this campy, vampy train, and the rest of us must just sit back and enjoy the divalicious ride. I love that jacket, too.

But mostly, I love that if I were still at Brown, I could write an entire honors thesis on this one YouTube video.

    My team had what I can really only qualify as a terrible week as I managed to narrowly lose, 6-5, to a team that didn’t make any lineup changes all week and hasn’t made a single move this season. I realized pretty quickly after the draft my pitching staff was simply awful, but this week really hammered it home. I used my first nine picks on hitters (C’mon, I couldn’t pass on Jim Thome in the 8th in an TB and OBP league!) and then selected Rich Hill and AJ Burnett, then two closers, and had to leave to catch a flight and allowed Yahoo’s auto-pick to select the rest of my squad. Over the next 8 picks the auto-select proceeded to take 3 backup middle infielders, a backup catcher, and a single closer. Lacking in quality arms,I tried streaming pitchers this week (Hammel, Wellemeyer, Jackson, Blanton, Kennedy) but it got me killed in all the ratios. And I was extremely lucky win the week with 2 saves; that’ll never happen again! It was definitely time for a trade. It was really tough giving up that absolute stud David Wright, but I’m absolutely pumped to have Jake Peavy, and Lyon and Percival bring some badly needed save chances for me. As for this week, though, ugh.
    HOT: Um, Carlos Marmol had 8 Ks and a .75 WHIP, does that count? Joey Votto (although I just picked him up at the end of the week, I’m really pumped to have him. Here’s some advice: if this guy isn’t owned in your league, pick him up now.) COLD: Travis Hafner, AJ Burnett, and Carlos Gomez (keeping me competitive in SB but absolutely killing me in five other categories).

    Jake Peavy was the one pitcher I most wanted to get in our draft. I am jealous, Scott. Jake Peavy is a True Ace.

    I can’t believe that it stayed on line towards the plate. How embarassed would she be if it rolled toward the dugout?
