Toes Go In First
*** Boomer? See ya
You just joined the ranks of Jim Leyritz and Ramiro Mendoza - former Yankees who came in and, well, never really did much to shed me of your pinstripes.
Thanks for the 14 wins this season. Don't talk smack on the way out.
Now get out.
***I like Milwaukee. But I miss Hot 97...blazin' hip hop & R&B. I really do.
MKE radio kinda, um, sucks.
But thankfully my boy DB turned me on to the new Pharrell (f. Gwen) - "Can I have it like that." It's the hottest song out right now. Fierce
*** Don't miss Bob Ryan's column today
, in case you were considering toeing the Tobin Bridge b/c the two-time defending World Champs are 3-3.
*** More Red Sox trade news
. WTF (shampoo). I've had it with this crap. Just go and raise the ticket prices again, asses.
*** Hey Pedro, you really need to STF (shampoo) U. Like my mom says, build a bridge and get over it. Make it the Whitestone, pal..
From today's New York Daily News, regarding the previous bulletpoint:"I knew he wasn't going to come," Martinez said. "It was too much we had to give away to get Manny. I knew that it was going to be difficult and the Red Sox would be stupid to actually do something like that in the middle of the season for a guy so popular in the clubhouse. David was like really upset. David was already thinking differently if Manny wasn't there."
(oh, there's more from this little bitch)
"But they knew what to do. Manny pretty much told them they were going to make a mistake. You could see David doesn't get pitched (to) if Manny's not there. It would be the same way if you kept Manny and let David go. Manny wouldn't be pitched (to). Those two guys, if they don't hit, Boston is done. The other guys are not like big threats."
*** Rick Reilly's column this week was about Matt Leinert not leaving school early for the pros. It's a pretty simple idea to grasp. Kinda like 2+2 (and, conversely, kinda UNlike the LSAT).
Especially when you read this, from the NY Post's Page Six: MAN-EATER Shannen Doherty has a new boy toy. The sexy former "90210" star made the scene the other night at the L.A. launch of Victoria's Secret's new Mood line of aphrodisiac-inspired candles and home fragrances — which seem to work. Doherty, 34, planted herself on the lap of a studly college senior: USC
quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinert. He nearly scored a touchdown right in their banquette, our spywitness reports. Also at the bash, held at the aptly-named Club Mood and hosted by Alessandra Ambrosio and Tyra Banks, were Paris Hilton and Stavros Niarchos, Mike Tyson, Kevin Federline, Joaquin Phoenix and Christian Slater.
Hmmm...I remember partying in college, but it was never with Brenda, supermodels, and stupid blondes.
Wait, I'm lying. The stupid blondes were there.
*** WMVYradio.com is a great work-time listen. Just terrific. "And so it is..." They're playing "Blower's Daughter" by Damien Rice. Haven't heard that in ages. Sorry, I'm cyber-daydreaming right now about the five-hour drive from Launceston to Hobart.
*** Ok, I'm going to start a new series on the blog, since i've for some unforeseen reason, even to myself, have eschewed the Hand...
It's called, um, "Imagine if."
Imagine if you walked into a bar and saw Dikembe Mutombo singing "American Pie" by Don Mclean.
That's it. Have a nice Friday.
