Random Thoughts


The Red Sox are on TV but the Green Sox are on my screens!


  • While I'm a die hard Yankee fan (from the time I could walk), I gotta admit that the Sox look awfully tough. Last year, during the ALCS, I predicted that '04 would finally be the year that Boston takes the beans. That could very well happen--and it would make for a VERY happy Dan Meehan.

  • Philip Mo, er, Altria (MO:NYSE), Bank One (ONE:NYSE), Lucent (LU:NYSE), Mellon (MEL:NYSE), Pfizer (PFE:NYSE), General Motors (GM:NYSE), Wells Fargo (WFC:NYSE) highlight tomorrow morning's parade.

  • I woke up Saturday and--outta nowhere--jumped in my car and drove to Baltimore to surprise my niece and nephew. The look on their faces was well worth the eight hours in the car.

  • We skipped from winter to summer in one fell swoop.

  • What the hell is a fell swoop?

  • N's over S's big-time.

  • I'm not your brah.

  • Collins suggested sushi today. Dude, I'm gonna offer up some free wisdom--never order raw fish on a Monday when it's over 80 degrees. I'll betcha if Roney did an analysis....

  • Can you be prim without being proper?

  • Traders have been trying to list SPY options for years but the CBOE won't do it because they're making such a vig on S&P options.

  • The Declaration of Independence was written on hemp paper. One of my lawyers sent me that factoid....which is, in some ways, a bit troubling.

  • The dot over the letter 'i' is called a "tittle".

  • It's good to have Professor McGuirk back in action. He'll be posting shortly.

  • The BKX stochastics have given a buy signal. They're NOT timing instruments--and can twist for a while--but it's an ingredient in the Minxy mix.

  • I've got it made, got it made, got it made...I'm hot for teacher.
