Jackie Bradley Jr. Casually Making Home Run Saving Catches Continues To Be My Favorite Thing #RedSox
If you need me today, I’ll be watching that video on a continuous loop. Jackie Bradley Jr. is basically a human highlight reel at this point, and the only thing more impressive than his catches are the time of the game when he makes them. When he robbed a homerun in Oakland earlier this year, it was in the bottom of the 9th of a 0-0 game. Last night’s catch might’ve been more impressive, and it happened with a runner on in the top of 8th with the Red Sox clinging to a 3-0 lead. If he doesn’t make that catch it’s 3-2, and it’s a totally different ballgame. Unreal stuff. If I’m a pitcher on the Red Sox and I can turn around and see #19 is behind me, I know something special might be happening at some point.
Wade Boggs, hall of fame baseball player, American hero and Always Sunny guest star was interviewed by TMZ Sports about his legendary beer drinking habits. While he’s obviously joking around in this video, it did get me thinking: is it possible to drink 100 beers in a day? Say you wake up at 5am and drink for 18 hours ending at 11pm. You’d have to, on average, drink 5 and half beers an hour. For the first few hours that’s easy peezy. After that though, you’d probably die, which would hinder your ability to continue drinking. Although if Boggs’ theory of letting the beer flow into his hollow leg is correct, I bet Officer Bennett from OITNB would be a hell of a dodge beer player.
In His Final At Bat in Yankee Stadium, Derek Jeter Was Stabbed Through the Heart With a Trident. JK He Got a Walkoff Hit
A lot of things have to happen to have a perfect moment. You need the perfect scenario (meaningless game), the perfect people (Buck Showalter, who managed Jeter his rookie year, didn’t intentionally walk him) and the perfect setting (Yankee stadium, where else). All those things happened last night, as Derek Jeter played his final game at Yankee Stadium, and in his final at bat, hit an opposite field single that scored the winning run. Some people are saying it was a meatball, and it was, but if a 20 year career that includes 5 world series rings doesn’t deserve a last at bat meatball then I don’t know what does. You don’t have to love him, you don’t have to hate him, but you do have to re2pect him.
