Let’s Make Papa Proud

The annual running of the bulls in Pamplona started on the 6th and will be going until the 14th, every day they set 6 of the bulls loose and head them towards their inevitable death. Sporty! Hemmingway made it sound like a fun adventure, so I won’t hear any ninnying from the PETA folk.

My new favorite, The Big Picture, an all hi-res image photo blog, releases new sets of photos every few days and the latest are from the bull runs and fights this week, they are totally boss.

You should absolutely go to the page itself and check them out in their full large size glory, since I can’t even begin to do these pictures true justice thanks to my layout, but there’s one more, totally graphic, picture I want to post. Join us below the jump to check out what happens a bull gets got.

I Disagree With Your Call and Would Like A Word About it

Here’s one of the better minor league manager melt-downs to have happened this season, manager Kash Beauchamp of the Wichita Wingnuts in the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball felt that the umpire might have missed the call. At least, I think that’s what he was trying to say when he took his shoe off and shoved it in the umpire’s face.

“It’s weird-it just comes out of nowhere, the ejections and stuff.” Beauchamp told the Wichita Eagle. “When I’m gone, (my brain) is gone, all I know is somehow I ended up in my socks. I don’t even know how I got into my socks. I was looking for my shoes and I had no idea where they were.”

Corey Hart Gets All Star Bid, Daughter Gets A Beer Bath

Corey Hart was voted in by the fans to his first All-Star game and his teammates couldn’t have been more excited for him, deciding to invade his press conference and shower him with beer. It’s a totally awesome gesture and shows how genuinely excited and happy for him his teammates are, but they clearly didn’t think about that he was holding his infant daughter. Oops!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I assume she’s fine, but if as she becomes a teenager she starts dancing on tables and begging men to spray her with champagne and beer we’ll know exactly where that desire came from.

One Fan Gets Pure Enjoyment from Baseball

The Rays have been a feel-good story all season long, already having won more games than they did their entire 2002. Attendance has been slowly rising but the residents of Tampa and St. Pete haven’t gotten fully on-board as yet.

Sports by Brooks found this the other day of one fan doing his best to add to the feel-good and to make the attendance rise.

Sure, she might not be giving him a handjob, but I prefer to be an optimist.

Titletown Has Finally Been Worth it

Titletown is one of the most uninteresting segments ESPN has done this side of “Who’s Now,” but the other day, while supporting Gainesville’s chances to arbitrarily be dubbed “Titletown,” Erin Andrews did her best Gene Simmons impression.

I know what sports fans will be dreaming about tonight…
