Dearest Gmail,

If you continue to swallow important information from clients inside your fancy "- Show Quoted Text -" block, we aren't going to be friends much longer. I love how you overcome my scatterbrained nature, but when you cost me money that means I can pay for something else to watch over my shoulder.

Celtics Win + I Am An Idiot

But you knew that. One of the nice things about the Internet is the rise of what Charlie Stross calls the "lifelog", a searchable list of everything you ever thought and did, a permanent Friend Feed. I mention this because I was so damned right about the Celtics trade for Kevin Garnett.

"Weird, I don't really like it from the Celtics' perspective . . . Can't see the Celtics signing anyone for about 10 years . . . I'm done with Danny Ainge. This off-season has made it clear the Celtics' interest is in competing for entertainment dollars, not championships."

Stunningly, this isn't the dumbest thing I've ever said on Sportsfilter. That would be this:

"Roberts has a .335 career OBP; he's a leadoff hitter like Tony Womack's a leadoff hitter. I'm not down on the guy before he's played an inning, but no one needs a pinch runner."

Mancrush: Woz

Man I love Steve Wozniak. Kathy Griffin lost me somewhere around her millionth plastic surgery when it became hard to look at her.

Terry Francona: Fashion Critic

"I can't believe that ball didn't take one look at [Orsillo's] sport coat and take a right turn."
