< 50 words …. Monday, April 11th

April 11, 2011 |

I could’ve easily written about a dozen different topics today. It was an eventful weekend and I will share additional hightlights during this afternoon’s show. Here are a half dozen of my observations:

TOUGHER Than Tough
.

Just four days removed from hospitalization for pneumonia, Jeremy Guthrie accepted the baseball and did what’s expected of a #1 pitcher. Heck, he did even more …..

Whenever a starter departs with surrendering just one run in 6 innings, he deserves to win. Andy MacPhail will regret penny-pinching this guy …..
.

Congratulations, Rory McIlroy
.

Even I feel badly for this dude – and I don’t know why …. other than seeing him meltdown and drive balls with the accuracy of me, during yesterday’s final round of the Masters. To his credit, McIlroy handled it like a gentleman and a professional.

Hey, bigger choke jobs have occurred …..
.

Does Texas Miss This Guy?
.

Not a freakin’ chance !!!! With the start of the ’11 season, another prospect acquired in the Mark Teixeira trade has “hatched” for the Rangers. Matt Harrison joins Neftali Feliz and Elvis Andrus as former Braves prospects performing for Texas.

Saturday’s 2-hit effort against the birds was evidence of Harrison’s talent.
.

Is There A “BIKER” Look?
.

Without hesitation, spring’s arrival guarantees every dusty Harley stored in a dude’s garage will find local roadways on weekends. Yesterday, I noticed plenty of bikes, and the consistent observation, as always, was BIKER GEAR.

If you ride a Harley is it mandatory to dress like a Hells Angel? Just wondering …..
.

Sex-retariat?
.

I agree with Glenn Clark’s assessment of current movies; selection sucks. So, we celebrated Friday’s Orioles rainout by watching Secretariat on DVD. It was okay …. sappy rather than suspenseful; John Malkovic didn’t kill anyone (damn !!!) and Diane Lane wore far too many clothes on that sexy frame.
.

Welcome to Butler Cabin
.

Reporter: “Charl Schwartzel, you just won the Masters … where ya going?”

Charl: “Umm … Disney World?”

Reporter: “Nope, you’re headed to Butler Cabin.”

NFL, NBA & MLB champions get parades. NASCAR’S champ gets the Big Apple. The Masters victor gets a fireside chat in a CABIN, with other dudes.

Now, that’s tradition …..
