Also, I really want him to use "The Swish" as his at-bat music because, seriously, how perfect would that be?

Nick Swisher is quickly becoming one of my favorite new Yankees, mainly because every time a reporter speaks to him, it's comedy gold. His latest bon mot? In an ESPN feature about Daniel Murphy of the Mets and our own Brett Gardner, Swisher says that Gardner is "the fastest white dude [he'd] ever seen."

I know I don't have any readership so to speak, but nevertheless, I just want to put it out there that Vagrant Records has some awesome customer service. After finding out that there were a bunch of defective copies of The Hold Steady's live album "A Positive Rage" floating around out there, they reached out to the fans directly on the band's message board and offered to replace the CDs, no hassle.
Good on ya, Vagrant.

I do not, do not want Weezer to tour with Blink 182. Whoever thought this up is quite mistaken in the belief that there is a large overlap between the bands' fanbases.
Here's an idea. How about Weezer goes on tour with No Doubt and Blink 182 can have Paramore? That would make my concert-going summer infinitely more entertaining...
