Same old, same old
So the New York Yankees are headed back to the World Series. What else is new?

... the headline "New Study: Leaves Fall From Trees In Autumn."
... O.J. in court again.
... Ryan Leaf getting cut ... again.
... that "FICA" dude's name on your paycheck ... you know it's going to be there every time, so what's the point in looking?
... your grandmother naked. There is absolutely nothing good or redeeming about it unless you are a deeply disturbed individual.
Stephen J. Rhombus
... Pamela Anderson naked ... again. There's just nothing left to see.
... that Shawn Kemp is having another child. It just keeps happening year after year after year.
... Anna Kournikova with another hockey player as her fiance.
... "that guy" with your ex-girlfriend making out in public. You know it's going to happen, but you pray you don't have to see it.
... the Road Runner hitting Wile E. Coyote with his own anvil ... again ... and again ... and again ...
... Shaq missing a free throw.
... Donald Trump win Powerball ... four times in a row.
... your ugly friend hitting on the hottest girl in the bar -- you already know the outcome but, damn, you still have to watch.
... the Red Sox on the golf course in October.
... your best friend pour sugar in your gas tank as you walk away from the job you just got fired from while you think of your dog that died the day before and the girlfriend that broke up with you on a voice mail on your lunch break.
... yet another "boy band" break into the Top 40 charts.
New London, Conn.
... Michael Jordan come out of retirement.
... the dentist.

Silver Spring, Md.
... a Freddie Prinze Jr. movie without the hot love interest.
... Jennifer Lopez in a white T-shirt on a rainy day.
... "Diagnosis Murder" in syndication ... it sucked when it started, and it still sucks now!
... a rabid raccoon tearing apart the neighbor's dog that barks all night and craps on your lawn.
... myself in a horrifying version of "Groundhog Day," where I am miserable for one month a year, because every team not wearing pinstripes chokes, again and again and again.
... Howie Long in another TV commercial.
Huntington Beach, Calif.
... Vanilla Ice perform again. You had your fun, now get the hell off the stage.
... the ending of Old Yeller over and over -- no matter how hard you hope for a different outcome, you wind up crying in the end.
... another bag of Candy Corn on the table; you know they're tasty, but you just get sick of them.

West Monroe, N.Y.
... Strom Thurmond running for the Senate.
McKees Rocks, Pa.
... the Keith Hernandez "Seinfeld" episodes ... sure you've seen them before, but you've gotta watch.
... Shadow Stevens on "Hollywood Squares" or Richard Dawson on "The Match Game."
... seeing the Yankees in the World Series again is like seeing Page 2 decline all of my responses -- they both are expected.

... SI's swimsuit issue. It never gets old.
... a 12-year-old reach out and pull in a fair ball for a home run.
