Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't remember Cito Gaston getting a great big sendoff from the Toronto Blue Jays the previous times he's left. Has he done something great recently that would warrant that treatment last night, or is this just another example of how low the Jays have set the bar and how they continue to live in 1992 and 1993? Wasn't he the guy the players revolted against last year as the season wound down? And nice use of Green Day's "Time of Your Life" as the background music for one video presentation. Very fresh.
Manchester United played mostly uninspired yesterday at Spanish leaders Valencia in Champions League play yesterday but were bailed out by a beauty from Chicarito in the dying minutes to salvage a 1-0 win. Inter Milan were 4-0 winners against Werder Bremen. Also impressive were Tottenham who pounded FC Twente 4-1 in London.
Tiger Woods should have showed up to the Ryder Cup with a date. I'm thinking Sasha Grey, perhaps.
Here's a peak at pro-wrestling stars of the 1980's and more recently, and what they look like today. Fear not, we only used the living ones.
How good has Buck Showalter been as manager of the Baltimore Orioles? He's been on the job since August 3rd, at which point, the Orioles had 32 wins. Since then, they've got xxx.

"He is in a crisis because of the perception that he is losing his team. We all know that especially in New York, once the media and the perception becomes a reality, you start fighting against it. And when you are fighting against something that is not necessarily real, you make it real. That is why he is in a crisis." Source: Former New York Giant turned NFL analyst Tiki Barber. Subject: Giants coach Tom Coughlin losing control of the team, we think. Logic: Minimal. Occasion: just ahead of being inducted into the Giants ring of honor. Real classy, that Tiki, just not really, well, rational or logical, and barely English. Wonder if Tiki thinks the same logic on perception applies to his treatment of women who have given birth to children of his?
