Yertle Doppelganger

This one is a little bit pushing it, but the picture of Torre was just too good for me to pass up. So, here is a Joe Torre, Yertle the Turtle doppelganger mashup. Lemme know what you think in the comments section below. And, as ever, go here for all my doppelgangers.

The Curling Event of the Decade

At long last curling is back in the news. Enough with these boring baseball and football stories, now it’s time to get back into the thick of the most exciting game on ice. That’s because The Curling News is releasing their 2009 calendar featuring some of the finest ladies in the curling game these days.¬†Featured on the cover is Italy’s Sonia DiBona whose risque shot makes me want to throw her my Bona. Get it! HI-OOOOOOOOOOOO! Yes! The controversy sparking calendar, which took a year off last year includes nude or near-nude curlers posing with their sporting implements.

Intended as a fundraiser for the women involved and their training, as well as other curling related causes the calendar features Denmark’s Camilla Jensen, the Toth sisters, Claudia and Karina, of Austria, Giorgia Apollonio and Sonia Dibona of Itala, Germany’s Anna Hartelt and Daniella Jentsch, Fabienne Fuerbringer of Switzerland, Kasia Selwant of Poland, Kim Brewster of Scotland and former world junior champ Linn Githmark of Norway. Also Canadiens Christine Keshen, who won an Olympic bronze medal throwing lead rocks at the 2006 Winter Games in Turin and Chrissy Cadorin are featured in the calendar as well.

Unfortunately despite the provactive cover, there aren’t other released images available online, as yet, but when they are I will get them your way. Among the big reasons to buy the calendar is that it includes all the KEY CURLING DATES for 2009. YES! Now I’ll never miss an important event again! Make sure you go out and get yours today!

BRAAAAAAIIIIINNNNS!

Former Patriots middle linebacker and noted romance novel enthusiast Ted Johnson was forced into early retirement from the multiple concussions he suffered during his playing career. Since his retirement Johnson has suffered debilitating depressions and memory issues, as well as a domestic dispute where he and his wife were both arrested for hitting one another.

Yesterday he announced that he was going to be donating his brain when he dies to the Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy, a joint program between the Boston University School of Medicine and Sports Legacy Institute. The center, which is trying to become one of the foremost experts in concussions has already received agreements from 16 athletes from such varied sports as soccer, football, hockey¬†and swimming to examine their brains after their deaths.

From The Allison Stokke Files

Now some of these photos are of her when she was like 15 so keep that in mind and keep your scuzzy thoughts to only those photos wherein she is over 18, but Coed Magazine assembled a collection of Allison Stokke pictures; they claim it is everything that is out there, we’ll see…

Other Reasons I Dislike Omar Minaya

I’ve been accused by reader Youppi for hating the Mets and such because of my latest diatribe against the sheer insanity of signing Omar Minaya to a new 4 year deal. Well, I disagree. Youppi, first off, I don’t hate the Mets. I don’t particularly like them, but I have zero hatred for them, although seeing them fail is pretty hilarious to me. I do dislike and abhor Omar Minaya who I think is overrated and inept. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE David Wright. I want him to succeed.

So that’s first off.

Secondly, I had even forgot about El Duque. The beginning season rotation was supposed to be Johan, Pedro, Maine, Perez and El Duque. YIKES! And then when injuries and Perez being perez happened they were scrambling for pitching. How do you assemble a roster like that and not have 10 other semi-decent starters available, after all, besides Johan and Maine no one in that starting rotation is in any way consistent and two of them are old as fuck and likely to, and did, get injuries. Now fortunately the Big Pelf stepped up and was surprisingly good. That’s awesome, and it’s about time. But, the fact that beyond him there were meaningful starts going to the likes of Nelson Figueroa is abominable.
