Hit and Run

* Chase Utley is a dirty, dirty boy. [Packer gives his annual thoughts on the Phillies] Also, how awesome is it that sunflower seeds are counted as part of the team’s “equipment”?

* Beware: David Aardsma keeps handcuffs in the bedroom- and he’s not afraid to use ‘em. [Be careful snooping on Sox pitcher — you might get cuffed]

* Brady Quinn is bored with your photoshoots, Nike- but gets excited when talking about a Hummer. [Notre Dame’s Quinn finds photo shoot a bit odd]


I’m not very popular with the females- maybe it’s my ugly face?

* Screaming girls is just a hazard of the job for Nick Markakis. [Markakis silences critics, elicits yells from ladies]

* Ryan Howard does not have time for your silly questions, reporters. He’s got to celebrate (self-proclaimed) Ryan Howard Day. [Frustrated with slump, Howard snaps at writer]

* Farewell to the Victors – Lloyd Carr dismisses three lawbreakers from the Michigan football team, as expected. All the Buckstache wearers in Ohio gleefully burn their couches. [U-M’s Carr dismissses 3 players from team]

About Texas Gal

Pitched four years for the Philadelphia Athletics, and then played shortstop for seven years for the Montreal Expos. Taught Rickey Henderson to steal a base. Taught Nolan Ryan to throw a punch. Taught Mickey Mantle to drink a beer. Threw one seven-hitter and seven no-hitters. Wonderboy was my creation, and first Jobu shrine was in my locker. Often called "the next Dustin Pedroia". Always wear high socks and eyeblack. Prefer to slide headfirst.

  1. It sounds like Brady should tell his manger to not set shoots with OCD Weekly. The prick is about to make several million in a couple of weeks. Suffer, you poor soul.

  2. “He’s the whole package,” Stoyer said. “He’s articulate, he’s
    photogenic plus he’s a stellar athlete.” *He’s Tom Brady!*

    Man, I really hope the dolphins don’t get Quinn. Don’t like him as a QB, don’t like him as an athlete, don’t like him as a person.

    (Alright, technically don’t know him as a person but…)

  3. Someone I know, and I’m not naming names, knows him as a person, and swears he’s funny and charming, and also pretty darned smart.

    I would love it if the Fins got him, so long as Ricky Williams came back to play for them. Because that combo would be freakin’ awesome to watch.

  4. meh… it might be ;)

    He’s got the whole leadership thing to I suppose. It’s just… well… how did George Clooney put it:

    ‘He’s young, he’s talented, he’s good looking and he can kiss my ass ’cause I hate him.’

    Totally agree on Ricky though, I hope they bring him back.

  5. I’m not saying it would turn out great, though- because the trainwreck potential is high. But I would watch every single Fins game just to make sure I didn’t miss a second.

  6. I know him as a person, at least somewhat. He just seems like a great guy. I won’t argue QB stuff, I could absolutely see him being a very expensive bust in the NFL. But as a guy, he’s cool and really nice.

  7. Aardsma also broke Henry Aaron’s run atop the alphabetic historic list of major league baseball players. I think we need to check his surname for phonics-enhancing characters.

  8. Bet the Michigan players are pissed they didn’t go somewhere like Florida State. They might have been punished with a suspension for the first half against a 1-AA opponent instead of kicked off the team.

  9. So now I am compelled to ask, StN- got any cute yearbook photos of him you would care to share?

    And YDD- at Miami, the University President would’ve held a press conference to berate the media asking why everyone thought it was such a big deal.

  10. I was in eighth grade with Barry Sanders.

    Which wasn’t very impressive at the time. I mean, you should have seen him break ankles on the hall monitors, no joke, but still, we had no idea.

  11. ladyandrea – ok, thats cool. Fairplay to him, I got a lot of time for humble/nice guy athletes.

    TG – ‘Trainwreck potential’ is an awesome phrase. Ten points for you.

    I went to school with Tom Brady. Dude kept dropping the damned soap in the showers though…
