So I go away for a few days, and the next I thing I know, the other Ladies… have conquered the world. Fantastic work, y’all!
I’m airport blogging it again this week, this time from scenic LaGuardia Airport in New York (thanks to a cancellation of my flight back to Chicago from Boston yesterday) — so let’s all get caught up on the latest hottie news together, shall we?
The scenery in Pawtucket is lovely this time of year.
* While the big boy Sox didn’t fare so well against the Angels on Sunday (maybe they were hungover from Saturday’s night’s 10-run tear?), the AAA-PawSox were looking mighty fine against the Syracuse Chiefs on Sunday in Pawtucket. Ladies’ mascot Jacoby Ellsbury, freshly back from his appearance in Boston on Friday, scored the game-winning run.
* It was the Day of the Pitcher on Sunday: the Twins’ Johan Santana fanned a career-high 17 batters, the Braves’ John Smoltz struck out 12 en route to a club record, and the Padres’ Greg Maddux prevented a Houston sweep and picked up career W #342. Maddux and Smoltz just go to show that hottness knows no age.
* Roger Federer picked up his 50th career tournament championship, beating out James Blake at the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters. As a non-tennis girl, I’m not even sure what that is– but I do know 50 victories is HOT.
* [This spot reserved for hottie news item on Carlos Zambrano and/or Ryan Theriot]. Unfortunately, mother nature decided not to cooperate, forcing a postponement thanks to rain of yesterday’s Cubs-Cards night game (and my flight back home!). Don’t worry, Cards, you’ll get yours today- so I’ll just post a cutie pitcher picture (see what I did there?) of today’s Cubbies starter Ted Lilly.
