Friday Open Thread: MC Hammer's Search Engine and Other Assorted Weird News

Update: Curt Young returns as the A's pitching coach. Thoughts?

Happy Friday, everyone! With a Friday night break from baseball (unacceptable, IMO, at least try not to compete with college football, right, MLB?), we're left in wanton anticipation for Game 3, after a dynamite first two games of the series. I know, I know, I'm trying my best to hype up the last bit of baseball we will see until MARCH, but if you take a step back, this series has been fantastic. Both games were one-run affairs, the series has been dominated by pitching, and the series is tied. It's good baseball. No, it's not A's baseball, but I was done with that. I'll have more to say about the 2011 season once I'm good and removed from it, but now is not that time.

Some key notes:

Happy Birthday to yonyonson! Hope you have an amazing day, kiddo; you deserve it!

According to CNN.com, MC Hammer is launching his own search engine, called WireDoo (beta test here if you are interested).

The article explains:

The project, called WireDoo, has been two years in the making, said Hammer (real name Stanley Burrell) Wednesday at the Web 2.0 summit in San Francisco.

At the conference, he said what will make his search tool better than Google (or, too legit to quit, if you will) will be its "deep search" ability.

I don't know really what to say to that.
