How to Lose One Million Bucks
Survivor: All Stars
For as well as he's played the game here on Survivor: All Stars, Boston Rob has overlooked one thing--namely that when you play the game and start putting people on the jury, you have to not burn a lot of bridges behind you. After all, the people you vote out from the final nine or so are going to be the ones who decide whether or not you get a cool million in cash (slightly less once the IRS gets their grubby little mitts on it). But Rob seems to forget this, as proved once again last night when he screwed over Big Tom and Big Tom gave him the look of death at tribal council. What it all comes down to is that Sunday night's finale has some potential to be really, really good. I can only hope that it is.
I'd love to see Rupert win this thing, but I'm not sure he'll make it, unless he wins both immunities. I am afraid unless he wins the next immunity, he's outta there. And that's a real shame. But he made it so far.
As for the reward challenge, it's great that you get a truck, a movie with all the goodies involved and some time away...but then the movie is the Lord of the Flies
?!? Is that really any kind of reward or are you trying to make them appreciate how good they really do have it?!?
Following up on yesterday's Goes Whereever a Spider Can
thing...more detials come to light. Seems that the NY Yankees were the first to protest about the Spidey bases. Which, like the song says, is ironic. This from the team that would love to tatoo ads on the guys bodies to raise more money to buy the best players and then fall short in the World Series yet again (please let the Red Sox make it this year...just so we can stop hearing about it!) but they don't want MLB to make any of the pie. And then to have athletes come out and say it harms the integrity of the game?!? No, what harms it is people like you who make these insane salaries and help put the small market teams out of the race pretty much from the 2nd or 3rd day of the season. They want all the money they can get (and will strike to get it) but they don't want MLB to get any and take advantage of their opportunities.
