If I never see that DirectTV ad with Carmen Electra having the body of the high school gym teacher again, it’ll be too soon. Please, in the name of all that’s decent, make it stop!
Now hear this: If Drayton McLane wants Carlos Beltran to be an Astro next year, he’ll find the money for him. Beltran may want to go elsewhere, and surely a team like the Yankees could offer him more money than it would make sense to give him, but I’m going to beat the rush and start calling BS right now on any cries of small-market poverty from McLane. That is all.
I loved how the Fox announcers clucked their tongues at Tony Womack‘s first-pitch hacking against Brad Lidge, who was surely a bit tired after back-to-back two-inning outings. Guys, that’s the hallmark of Tony Womack’s career. His .349 OBP this year is his best ever by over 20 points, and with 36 walks in 553 ABs, it’s all driven by his batting average. He’s a hackmeister of the first order, and if you’re surprised by what he did then you haven’t been paying attention.
For awhile there, I thought the Astros-Cards game was going to end before the Yankees-Red Sox game did. Another announcer (I can’t remember which one is which – maybe Joe Buck does need a catchphrase) noted that the Fenway concessionaires had to be making a fortune with those three super-sized games. I just wonder how any of the fans make it in to work the next day.
Football, schmootball. This is where the action is.
UPDATE: Rafe beat me to the punch about McLane and Beltran.
