Short and sweet today. Nothing fancy. Just a quick selection from Dana Carvey, the man Dennis Miller says crushed every, single character he ever did on “Saturday Night Live.” And who was the best person they had on the show all of last season even though he did like two skits. I’ll still say Phil Hartman was the best they’ve ever had on that show. But for pure talent and versatility, it’s hard to say anyone topped Carvey.

Thank you, WEEI Providence. You only get so many summers as we go around on this spinning blue marble, so I would never wish one away. But the fact that this is what is waiting for us when this particular summer is over makes it really hard.

Football is on the back burner for maybe another three weeks. After that, things are going to get dangerous, indeed. Clean up in aisle, My Pants.

NBC NewsA bullfighter and a man participating in a village bull-run were killed in Spain on Saturday, while another two men were gored by the animals at the world-famous festival in the town of Pamplona.

Victor Barrio, a 29-year-old professional bullfighter, was killed when a bull’s horn pierced his chest in front of spectators as he competed in a fight in the town of Teruel in the eastern region of Aragon.

His death, shown live on television, was confirmed on the website of Madrid’s Las Ventas bullring, where Barrio began as an apprentice bullfighter in 2010. He is the first Spanish bullfighter to die in a ring since the turn of the century.

In the southeastern village of Pedreguer near Valencia, a 28-year-old Spaniard was killed during a bull-run, in which people risk life and limb by racing alongside specially-bred fighting bulls through narrow streets.

A bull’s horn pierced his lung and heart.

No one can ever accuse me of putting animals ahead of people. I respect critters, but I also respect hunters. I’m against the unnecessary killing of animals, but I judge them by their relative deliciousness. In other words, when it comes to creatures, I pride myself on having a little thing called perspective.

But this is one instance where I’m on the animals’ side all the way.

In a world of nanny states where people are trying to outlaw funtivities like football, jungle gyms, dodgeball and even playing tag at recess, how is torturing barn animals for fun still a thing? How are there still stadiums where people pay to watch a creep in skin tight, bedazzled capris stabbing, killing and mutilating a bull? And how are public safety officials signing off on letting tourists try to outrun specially-bred, two-ton, horned killing machines? I mean, what century is this?

Believe me, I’d love to treat these two deaths as tragedies, but I can’t. Sometimes your death is comical and deserved, and these are two such times. Neither of these guys earned the right to find those bulls’ horns through their major organs and think “What did I do to deserve this???” They knew the risks. They lost fair fights. Bulls 2, Spaniards 0. And their deaths are no less funny than those thousands of people who die each year by tipping vending machines onto themselves.

So no, I don’t feel sorry at all. Especially now that we learn that by tradition, both the bulls and their mothers will be slaughtered as a price for the stupidity of these bozos. So screw them. They’d all be alive today if they simply listened to what Mr. Vernon taught us all so long ago.

YouTubeKaia Coffey, a 4-year-old Olympia girl who has been telling people for a year that she was going to marry Russell Wilson, didn’t take the news well Wednesday that the Seahawks quarterback had gotten married to Ciara.

I don’t know what it is about being a Seahawks fan that makes you go all sadistic like this. But between the approximately infinity videos of them reacting to the end of Super Bowl XLIX and poor Kaia Coffey’s mom playing with her emotions like this, there’s a certain self-loathing cruelty about the 12th Man that is really disturbing.

That said, I am not blaming Kaia one bit for this. She is entitled to feel these real feelings. And besides, this was pretty much my reaction when Tom Brady got married. Not to mention, at four years old, she’s been a Seahawks fan longer than most of them.
