Hit & Run: Comin’ At Ya From HTown

Y’all are getting a 3-shot H&R today, because I’m on my way out the door to play 18 holes in the oppressive Houston heat, and I need to conserve energy for the ballgame tonight (so I can cheer for newly minted All-Star Aaron Rowand – squee!). Here it is, quick and dirty…

* Cubs tag-team of LSU boys Ryan Theriot and Mike Fontenot are on fire. My favorite Cubbie, Ryan (whose assets were already strong enough to land him a spot on the Best Butts Countdown), went 3-for-4 on Sunday, continuing his great season for Chicago, and Mike is now so popular with Cubs fans the PR folks debated whether to repaint the Michael Barrett bobbleheads (given away at yesterday’s game) to make them look like Mike of the Fontenot variety. Any time there are two Cajuns roaming the Friendly Confines, I’m a happy girl.

* Jacoby Ellsbury, Ladies’ mascot (ok, that may have been just me on that one) and uber-hottie, got the call up to The Show on Saturday, and is already making an impact (getting his first hit that night). While most everyone fawns over him, the rain on the parade has already started from J.D. Drew’s corner.

* I might as well go ahead and confess my dark, dirty and shameful secret: I think Scott Proctor is hot. And that temper of his that caused him to start a campfire with his equipment (after yet another sucky day on the mound)? Only makes him hotter (no pun intended). He says it was all a joke; I say- darlin’, if the Yankee pinstripes didn’t put me off you forever, a little dugout bonfire ain’t gonna change things. Burn, baby, burn.


Congrats on making the All-Star team Bacon Pants, Beckett and Papyboo!
(Yes, this is just an excuse to post hot pictures of my baseball boyfriends)

  1. Good morning.

    TSW, this is important. My first hockey crush, Petr Sykora, now plays on your team. Please take care of him.

    PS Sorry but that’s a “no” on Josh Beckett. Yuck.

  2. Pam – This is going to be hard, because if memory serves me, he was on the Devil’s Stanley Cup team.

    Ah, who am I kidding, I am giddy about this upcoming season I don’t care who else we sign. They just annouced the best season-ticket sales ever and it is barely July.

  3. Correct, he was, although that ugly bastard Derian Hatcher knocked him out with a cheap shot, so he didnt get to bask in the moment when it happened.

    I would think a change of sweater should do the trick for you, no?

    Oh and I second that: you’re nuts, TG.

  4. JD Drew, Rowand you are not. And Rowand on the all star team! Yeah!

    And Theriot is just adorable…we need a picture of him!

  5. Yeah- didn’t make it all the way through, thanks to the pouring rain. It’s still hot as hell, though- I have totally lost my ability to deal with the muggy Gulf Coast heat after 2 years in Chicago.

    (and psssst Cameron: I’m going to do a whole HDH post about those 2 LSU boys before long… Theriot is beautiful)

  6. Oh, AARON!! I had a conversation with a guy about him today, because I’m (proudly) sporting my Rowand tee. Lovehim.

  7. I have nightmares about Josh Beckett and Papelbon is definitely a very young and mildly retarded child, but I have to agree with you about Scotty P. I don’t know if it’s the temper, the eagerness to rough up opposing batters with his fastball or his general all-around hotness… but I love that man.

  8. Michelle: good- we need some t-shirts or something for the Ellsbury Fan Club.

    RUTS: yes- it is perfectly ok. And encouraged.

    Chasevid: I got my brother to wear my Rowand tshirt to the game tonight. I’m trying to work on him and get him to pick Aaron as his favorite Philly… there’s some steep competition.

    NYY85: I am going to COMPLETELY disagree on Beckett and Papyboo (of course- Sox fan here!), but must shamefully COMPLETELY agree on Proctor. Don’t know what it is, but he is HOT.
