The Most Fearsome TD Celebration Ever!

Canada is ferocious. Canadian football is bad-ass. Well, maybe not so much. But they are trying and I appreciate that. Here’s a video from the CFL of one of the stranger TD celebrations I’ve seen. Anytime you need to call everyone over and set people up it’s already taken too long. You either celebrate right away or you don’t get to. Even the QB had walked off the field!

Jessica Alba in a Bikini! Oh, and Baron Davis

Because who doesn’t love to see new MILF Jessica Alba in a bikini! Baron Davis wishes he was in as good shape as Alba. It looks more like HE had the baby rather than she. Anyways, here’s the two of them, along with Alba’s husband and some other rando girl playing around on the beach. Who knew Alba was so athletic?!?

"C'mon Baron don't be scared of the water..." "I don't WANNA! YOU CAN'T MAKE ME!"

"C'mon Baron, don't be scared of the water..." "I DON'T WANNA! YOU CAN'T MAKE ME!"

"Hey where did my feet go? WHO STOLE MY FEET!"

"Wait where did my feet go? WHO STOLE MY FEET!"

Thanks Coach!

I saw this quote and thought it had to be shared with the world. These words from Herm Edwards are sure to excite everyone, particularly rookie Tyler Thigpen who struggled last week in his first career start after going to noted football powerhouse Coastal Carolina:

One thing I do know, when Brodie [Croyle] gets back, Brodie’s got to play. And if he stays healthy, he’s going to play the rest of the season. And guess what? Tyler won’t play. He’ll never get an opportunity to play. And that’s good for us.

I feel inspired.

Today in Ridiculous News

First I saw that Clay Aiken had come out as gay and my mind was still trying to wrap itself around that; I mean, he always seemed so straight, plus he kept denying the rumors so vehemently, it’s a hard one for me to believe. Then I hear that Matt Millen (Detroit’s record under him was 31-84(!)) was finally FINALLY fired. But then, to make me even more incredulous, in the most ridiculous news of the day I see that Mets GM Omar Minaya is getting a 4 year extension. Um, WHAT? Among his accomplishments Baseball Tonight had listed were that his team went to the NLCS once (losing to the worst eventual World Series winner in recent history), that he has a winning percentage of .551 and that he signed Carlos Beltran and traded for Johan Santana. Um, that’s it?

Now I’ll give credit for Johan, the deal Omar made was a fucking steal as we’ve seen that Carlos Gomez and the rest of the semi-scrubs the Mets sent the Twins’ way are not CLOSE to being truly serviceable on the major league level. That was a well played move. Omar waited until the Sox and Yankees, with their superior offers, bowed out and played upon the desperation of the Twins. That’s some smart maneuvering. However, the REST of the Mets roster is an epic example of FAIL. How can you go into a season with someone like Moises Alou penciled in to start and really not have an effective backup behind him for his eventual injury? Endy Chavez doesn’t count as he is and always should be a 5th outfielder. The farm system isn’t producing any major new talent, sure the infusion of players like Daniel Murphy have been nice in recent weeks but the rest of the system is bereft of top-quality players who can make any kind of impact in the near future.
