In Which I Fall in Love

She may be a professional mountain biker, but to me, Niki Gudex is simply a super hot Australian, and a future ex-Mrs. Slanch. When she’s not on her bike, Niki is a graphic designer and a model and I think she photographs quite nicely, she is more than welcome to take me for a ride on her handlebars anytime. Join us as we take a gander, including the last two in the gallery after the jump which are NSFW.

Whitey Herzog Has a Way With Children

Within a nice story about how Whitey Herzog had a baseball field named for him in Belleville, Illinois (home of famed former Sox (Red and White) slugger Brian Daubach) is this little nugget about him coming across some kids doing something strange:

“It’s the first time I’ve seen two kids playing catch in 20 years, so I stopped the car and gave them each an autographed ball,” said Herzog, who told the surprised boys who he was and why he was stopping to admire their game of catch. “I said, ‘I’m so proud that you two kids are out there playing catch, because nobody does anything today unless it’s organized.’

“I kind of shocked them a little bit, but I was just in awe of that because you don’t see it any more.”

I imagine the kids were totally confused why this old flat-topped guy was coming out of his car claiming he was a famed manager. “I played for Casey Stengel,” “Sure you did old man, now take your liniment smell and get out of here before I have to call the police. Oh, and thanks for now ruining my baseball by scribbling all over it.”

Mountain Top Golfing is Frought With Peril

My favorite part of this video is that the guy had planned all along to hit this golf ball, having to bring ball and club along for the entire hike so they could make this video. A true friend would never, ever, let him forget he did this.
