If I could propose to and marry that catch I would. Fully extended, in the gap. I don’t care if Kirstie Alley hit that ball, that’s an easy two run triple if he doesn’t make that catch. The youth movement is in full force right now, and may be just what the doctor ordered. I’m not going loco and predicting the Sox make the playoffs, but it’s sure going to be fun watching these 21-26 year olds find their way and put their personal stamp on the game. By the way:
The #RedSox are on pace to go 72-0 when AJ Pierzynski isn’t on the 25-man roster.

That’s the most disinterested I’ve ever seen a person look. That video is 1:51 and I felt like I was watching it for hours. Like a slow motion train wreck that was never going to stop. Luckily, it did. So I guess this answers the age old question: how is Ken Griffey Jr. handling retirement? Not well it seems. Just doing interview after interview hating his new life. I knew some athletes didn’t make a seamless transition into retirement but Griffey just looks depressed. Poor Linda Cohn. She was so excited to interview him, and then he turned into that person you keep texting even though you write paragraphs and they answer with one word. I guess that’s what happens when you never win a World Series. You turn into a one word robot.
A lot of people are laughing this off as a prank. Ask anyone whose ever played basketball at any level if they thought this was funny. 1 million out of 1 million people will tell you it’s not. Ever rolled, sprained or broke your ankle? Not much humor about that. Running up and down the court in the NBA with your shoelaces untied is probably the easiest way to sprain your ankle. I don’t think you should fine or suspend Smith, though. He should be banned from the league FOR LIFE. Only reasonable thing I can think of. He should thank his lucky stars that he didn’t do that to Dirk. I’d be on the first flight to New York to kick his tattooed ass.
P.S. In retrospect, I shouldn’t be surprised someone with such a wholesome look did this..
It is a sad day in the pro wrestling world. Hall of famer, Jim Ross, has announced his retirement after 20+ years of service to focus on his personal business endeavors.
Jim has called some of the most memorable matches in WWE history incuding the epic and iconic hell in a cell match between Mick Foley and The Undertaker. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007 by his long-time friend “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
Fans everywhere thank him for his many years of service and wish him well.
All I have to say is “AS GOD AS MY WITNESS, HE IS BROKEN IN HALF!”
PS- Nicest guy in person and he loves his fans!
The once boring and unwatched Pro Bowl is getting an upgrade! Along with eliminating kickoffs and shortening quarter times, the Pro Bowl is going to add a fantasy style draft to the all-star game. This is the Pro Bowl that I have been waiting for! Maybe Doug Martin will be lining up behind Tom Brady this year? Who knows, a man can dream!
PS- Who can forget this awesome Pro Bowl moment, complements of Brian Moorman and the late great Sean Taylor. (And of course JR has to call it)
Miguel channeling his inner Hulk Hogan
“Miguel’s career in music may be over after this freak accident tonight at the Billboard Awards, but we’re sure he has a future in the WWE.
Here’s two women who bore the brunt of his failed stage dive attempt (or was it failed? What was he trying to do?) and were quickly shuffled away from the scene. The one on the right takes a shoe to the head; the one on the left gets the full guillotine leg drop action to the neck. …meanwhile, finished the song as if nothing had happened.” – Deadspin
First off, let me start by saying, that was the best leg drop I have seen since Hogan fought The Rock at Wrestlemania X8. Just absolute flawless execution and form coming from the R&B sensation.
Now on to why i’m pissed.
This is a classic case of the rich getting richer. Not only does this guy have an amazing singing voice but now he probably has a good chance of appearing on WWE. Come on now! I fake wrestle with my friends all the time and probably have a better repertoire of moves. It doesn’t mean you’re not gonna see me chumming it up with big Vince anytime soon. Miguel, I appreciate the effort, but leave the wrestling to the pros…and to me, drunk on a friday night.
P.S. That lady has to have a concussion right?
