The Yankees lose! The-e-e-e Yankees lose!
But in news that makes me even happier, the Chicago White Sox have hired my all-time favorite player, Robin Ventura, to be their new manager. From what I’ve been reading, White Sox fans seem about as happy as if I’d been named manager, but I’m thrilled. Baseball, and, at the risk of sounding overly rapturous, the world need more good guys.
I think even those of you who aren’t baseball fans will smile at this story.
~It’s nice to have a president who can pronounce ‘nuclear.’ I’m just saying.
~A-Rod admitted his steroid use. Is he telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth? I have my doubts. And if “honesty,” as he stated over and over again, is so important, then, uh, why wasn’t he honest until he had to be? And if “this is [his] fault,” then why is he acting like it’s Selena Roberts’s?
Report: A-Rod tested positive for steroids in ’03
I’m rather curious to see what punny headlines will grace the papers tomorrow. (“A-nabolic” was the first thing that came to my mind.)
(A-ddendum: A rather uninspiring collection: A-Roid, A-Fraud, A-R*d. Come on, guys (gals?), you can do better than that!)
Report: Manny rejects Dodgers’ $25M
You know, I wish that the Dodgers and Giants would reject him already. “25 million isn’t enough? Okay. Guess you’ll have to find something else to do from April through October, then. I hear embroidery is fun.”
I’m not sure it would have an impact on him, though. Worse, it would mean that the Manny-to-Mets speculation/pleading would never end. (Million Manny March?!)
