$20 million to OHB?
Hard not to love the Sports Pickle in general, but when they produce fine work like at right, it is damn near impossible. Speaking of the OHB, Jay Glazer at Fox Sports looks at why he went from out last week to now reconsidering it. Let's just say if he had Terrell Owens old P.R. hack, she'd be saying he may have $7 million more reasons to come back this year, on top of the $13 million he'd be scheduled for. $20 million? At least he's not holding the Vikes hostage. Worst guy in sports.
Well at least this one is new. Houston Texan Brian Cushing, under suspension for a failed drug test, says the elevated testosterone levels he showed when tested are the result of Overtraining Syndrome, which does actually exist according to some researchers. How is he going to explain the New Jersey locals who have talked of how he routinely blows up every summer for the last decade or so? Bonus points for "not knowingly" at least. Then again, it is the NFL and it'll be forgotten before his suspension is even done.
Here's a solid idea: MLB is going to start its 2011 season on a Friday, and more importantly, not have it end past October.
Interesting article from Joel Sherman at the New York Post on how a pre-game conversation with Alex Rodriguez the day he hit #600 helped A-Rod out. The cool part: it is about Wayne Gretzky.
Good God, Leafs Fan, the potential move of Tomas Kaberle is hardly sea changing for the NHL or your team. Cool it with the ridiculous scenarios already.
ESPN SoccerNet has a great transfer rumors blog running that is updated constantly through the day. Get your fill here.
Not sure I'll hear anything more ridiculous this year than the owner of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, whose name escapes me - which is fitting - threaten to move the team from Hamilton if they don't get a new stadium. Where are they going to go to? Ottawa? Halifax? Not sure there are any CFL-ready stadiums in this fair land, nevermind in cities clamoring to get in the league. Maybe he should threaten Phoenix? That'd be at least funny.
It warms the cockles of my heart to hear from Didier Drogba that he doesn't think Chelsea are ready to defend their English Premier League title this year. Methinks DD is right.
In the comments section today, it is hockey's turn to take a fisting, with GHVH's epic blast from a couple weeks back set to be copied over to lead the charge. Feel free to join in on the fun. Up tomorrow is one that ought to inspire strong feelings: soccer.
A flight attendant on JetBlue asked a passenger to sit down just after a plane landed and the passenger started grabbing her bags. When he approached, the passenger cracked him in the head and cursed him some more. His reaction? He got on the P.A. and cursed everybody out, grabbed a few beers and dropped the emergency slide out of the door and slid off. Now that is a walk-off shot.
Speaking of headshots, best concert headshot comes to the mellon of Justin Bieber. This is awesome.
