Fight! Fight! Fight! Robert Horry pushed Steve Nash into the scorer’s table yesterday, guaranteeing himself a nice suspension. Later, Nash waited for him outside the arena, and the two pushed each other and yelled “Hold me back, hold me back!” to their teammates. (Not true.) Suns tie the series with the Spurs, purchase boxing gloves for the next game.
Representing the Scarlet Knights, Jason Bergmann of the Washington Nationals took a no-hit bid into the eight inning, until giving up a solo home run to the Braves’ Brian McCann. Fellow Scarlet Knight and Manalapan High School grad David DeJesus of the Kansas City Royals went 1-5 with a triple in the Royals’ 2-1 win over the Oakland A’s. DeJesus’ triple didn’t figure into the final score, but dammit, he and Bergmann were classmates of mine at Rutgers, so you’ll read it and you’ll like it!
Another Tuesday, another report on my Mets: last night they won against the Cubs in amusing fashion with a walk-off walk. After being down 4-0 after 2 innings, Tom Glavine did his thing, and kept the Mets in the game. David Wright hit a 2-run HR to make it 4-2, someone else tied it up (I was a little occupied during the game – ah, it was Paul Lo Duca and Damion Easley who tied it up), and the Cubs gift-wrapped this one back to the Mets.
The Phillies gave away Chase Utley fleece blankets on Mother’s Day, and now those blankets are selling like hotcakes on eBay! I know we all want our piece of Chutley, but $50 for a fleece blanket? Good lord! [Thanks to Anonymous Reader for the tip.]
Around the NFL, minicamps are in full swing, and none is helmed by a hotter coach than the Steelers’ camp. Mike Tomlin is quite the hottie. He’s handling every crisis – whether real or imagined by Steeler Nation – like a vet, and we here at Ladies… wish him the best. Mainly because we like our eye candy to stick around.
