Think Javon Walker is happy to be out of Green Bay? Let's hear his thoughts on the status of his current team--the Denver Broncos--vs. the situation he left behind:
We all know those guys. Heck, I'm a proud member of those guys' team. We do things to get rises out of people, to put them on the spot and to force them into a judgment call. What we say and do can, at times, lead to controversy, but in reality we don't actually care. We're just here for the Bud Light, essentially.
Just no way to make sense of this.
This story is just one of those where you have to share your head and wonder "How could someone even get away with that?" You hear stories about guys who travel up to Vermont for a skit trip weekend, and wind up convincing women they're members of the New York Giants. But they would never try to sustain that act over a long period of time. After all, it's rather easy to catch a liar in the act. Yet, Brian Jackson repeatedlyconned women into thinking he was different players on the Pitts burgh Steelers.
"Going into Sunday's game against the Oakland A's, the Mariners were the only team that has used the same five starting pitchers this season."
Everyone has that one guy in his or his (not a typo) fantasy sports league who rips off the competition with one-sided deals. It causes the whole league to appeal the trade, the commissioner to be flooded with phone calls and text messages, and all out chaos to erupt in what was once a friendly atmosphere.
I was glancing at the listed starters for the Milwaukee-Colorado game this evening, as I am wont to do, and I noticed that the starting pitchers tonight are Tomo Ohka vs. Byung-Hyun Kim. Now, I won't (not wont) be "that guy" who goes and makes a tasteless remark about the nationalities of these two pitching legends. What I will point out is that Coors Field should expect a record attendance of 56 billion people. In between innings, there's sure to be a contest where you have to guess between 55.8, 55.9 and 56.0. Yatta! will reportedly be singing the National Anthem and throwing out the ceremonial first twigs and berries.
I may be the only one who picked up on this, but it appears that the ESPN photos of Bobby Abreu and Gary Sheffield are cheap artistic representations of the real men. I'm really not sure which one of these men looks more like a cartoon character. Abreu, on the one hand, looks like a balloon with giant ears. It appears that the cartoonist accidentally drew a balloon (obviously thinking he was supposed to draw a balloon that was sitting in the chair alongside him) and, not wanting to waste paper, tried to transform it into a person's head. It's like trying to change a zero into a 7: it gets messy and it's obviously still a zero trying to resemble a 7.
