Brain Clearing On a Saturday Afternoo

PLUS Catch me Live at Tracy’s Comedy Club Tonight

My apologies to the five of you who simply love my blog.  It’s been a few days.  It’s been hectic.  It’s been too hot. I just didn’t have the time.  The good news is that there’s LOTS to talk about so let’s get started…

AUBREY HUFF

Prove me wrong Aubrey! I said you weren’t worth it and there you go hitting for the cycle.  Sometimes it’s nice to be wrong.  Shame the team still loses.

JAY GIBBONS

A couple of decent plate appearances does not a season make.  You’re hitting .206.  Please accept a minor league assignment or quit the sport forever.

CHRIS RAY

What the hell is wrong, pal?  Do you miss your mother?  Where’s the fire? Where’s the passion?  Where’s that killer spirit that a closer needs?  Start closing out games or I’m going to trade you in my fantasy league for one of the Rangers’ set-up men.

HOT DOG EATER IS HURT

Tekaru Kobayashi, the guy who’s won the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest six years in a row, is out with a jaw injury.  Can he overcome the injury?  It hurts to see a pro like Kobi go down.  Click here to listen to the interview Andrew and I did with his manager.

TOP 50 SPORTS JERKS OF ALL TIME

http://cbs.sportsline.com/columns/story/10236485

Why isn’t my 6th grade gym teacher Mr. Watkins on the CBS SPORTSLINE list?  He’s one of the biggest jerks of all time.  He’d make you run laps just for looking in his direction.  Oh, and what about Steve Garvey?  He was a jerk.  So was Wade Boggs.  I met him once in a bar in Cleveland when I was in my early twenties.  I walked up to tell him how much I admired what he did as a baseball player.  He looked at me like I had bugs crawling out of my ears and turned away.  JERK!

QUICK THOUGHT ON NASCAR

Why are there almost no Black people at a NASCAR event?  The only black you see at a race are the tires, the asphalt and half the checkered flat.

MUSINGS ON CHICKS…

I used to be on a search for the perfect woman.  Now that I’m older and I’ve dealt with every form of lunatic there is, all I want is a woman with the perfect mix of medications.

See ya…
