My brain is pretty much in the same place as whoever was responsible for that little mistake there, so links it is! Luckily there’s some good stuff you may have missed. Continue reading
Is it just me, or does the disabled list seem a bit full for only six weeks into baseball season? Maybe it’s because my Cardinals are already missing their ace pitcher, 2/3 of the starting infield and just barely avoided being without their entire outfield in today’s game. But it isn’t just St. Louis, many of our favorite baseball hotties are currently out of action. Starting with …
Out Until June 1
It’s the dog days of summer and getting moving on Monday morning can be a little rough, so I thought I’d post some pictures to get the heart rate elevated and the blood pumping.
This week, I’m going with some of the lesser known and enjoyed hotties.
Is there a better way to start a week than that?
Many years ago, the Kansas City Royals were no-hit by Jon Lester, and they haven’t won a game since. Wait, that was like 11 days ago but time has dragged by while Royals Nation waits for the team to pull out some kind of non-failure. It’s been a voyage of suckitude not seen since the infamous 19-game losing streak of 2005. You want to know how it feels? I’ll show you:
Pat Neshek is out of the Minnesota Twins lineup, likely for the rest of the year. He has an acute partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, as shown on an MRI from Friday, May 9, 2008. Neshek and the organization are hoping he won’t need Tommy John surgery, as that would put him out for most of the 2009 season as well. According to twinsbaseball.com, Neshek said doctors feel the injury can be treated with rest and rehabilitation. “We’re going to prepare for Opening Day next year,” Neshek said. In the meantime, will he still be able to update us on his status in his entertaining and informative blog, On The Road With Pat Neshek? The rest of the story, after the jump…
Dear Football Jesus (there’s a separate one for football),
Kind of a rough week. Do you read the Indy Star?
“Strong-side linebacker Rob Morris underwent surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn tendon in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the season. Among players held out of this afternoon’s practice were wide receiver Marvin Harrison (bruised left knee), safety Bob Sanders (bruised ribs), running back Joseph Addai (bruised shoulder) and tight end Ben Utecht (concussion).”
I know you’re busy, Football Jesus. It is Sunday, after all. But if you could find a minute to see my boys in blue safely back on the field? That’d be swell. And if not, well, I have a couple things I can try on my own. Morris is done for the season, but the other four? They still have a shot. They’re the good guys, every one, and they play the game with a joy you have to see to believe.
Yesterday was a pretty lousy day in the sports world — lots of pining for things gone missing — so let’s make this quick.
Kevin Garnett breaks the hearts of T-Wolves fans and becomes a Celtic.
BOTH Phillies right fielders Shane Victorino and Michael Bourn were placed on the DL yesterday. Texas Gal and I will miss their speed on the basepaths.
Sad news out of Phoenix: A police report states that drugs, drug paraphernalia and a loaded handgun were found in Rod Beck’s home on the day he died. Very unfortunate indeed.
Rawlings dumps their sponsorship of the beleaguered Michael Vick. He’ll miss the scrilla.
I leave you with some cute sleeping puppies in order to get the crappy taste out of your mouth.
Tonight, boxing fans will be gathering in droves to watch Miguel Cotto take on Zab “Super” Judah. Who’s going to win? I don’t know, I can barely remember what time the match is. For all the deets, go to East Side Boxing.
Howevah, if all you want is to see cute boys with nice bodies, follow me…
The Miami Heat suffered a blow last night when Dwyane Wade got entangled with Shane Battier in the 4th quarter and dislocated his left shoulder. He left the game in a wheelchair with tears in his eyes (c’mere Dwyane, we’ll make it better) and was taken immediately to the hospital. The extent of the injury is unknown at this time, but Wade will not travel to Dallas for the game tonight between the Heat and the Mavericks. The team has two days off after tonight and are home against Cleveland on Sunday. Dwyane Wade, get well soon. Also because my rookie fantasy season was going really well, I’m about to pounce on 3rd place in the league. Help me Obi Wan-Dwyane, you’re my only hope.
