Behind the Scenes at MLB Network

This past Monday, loyal reader and regular Slanchreport commenter Youppi got to visit the sets of the brand new MLB network in Secaucus, NJ as part of his job. In fact, when you watch the MLB network and see the big photos of players floating on screens in the background behind the main desk, Youppi picked them out. So, yeah, I got friends in high places.

This LeBron Guy is Pretty Good

During last night’s Cavaliers/Raptors game LeBron James scored 33 points, pushing his NBA total over 12,000 points, making him the youngest and fastest to ever reach that point, beating Kobe Bryant by a YEAR! Wow.

“He’s still going to get better,” Cavs coach Mike Brown said. “That’s the scary thing.”

Yeah it is. They may need to create a whole new record book just for LeBron…

All Hockey ALL the Time

Boom!

Here’s LA’s Denis Gauthier knocking the shit out of Josh Gorges, I’d say he seems a little dazed when he gets back on his feet…

How ‘Bout THEM Apples

When PJ Stock was a Boston Bruin the teams weren’t especially good, but he always had a fist to throw in someone’s face or a hard check into the boards in him to excite the crowd. Now, he’s taken his irascibility to the TV and he remains as feisty as ever. For example, in a good-natured shot at fellow Hockey Night commentator Mike Milbury by posting Milbury’s cell phone number while on the air. Fun times!

Where I Hate on Religion For a Hot Second

Kurt Warner is a man who is very open about his religious fervor and that’s swell; he even chose his uniform number, 13, because of his religious beliefs.

“A lot of people believe 13 is an unlucky number,” Warner said, “but I’ve kind of embraced it.”

“A lot of negative things come with the No. 13. My life is never dictated by superstitions. My faith is first and foremost. If you believe that God’s in control, there is no reason to believe in superstitions.”

Yeah, because religion isn’t superstition…

This Ripken Ain’t Tacky

With the economy in the tank, everyone in America has a bit more (or too much) free time. For example, here is a guy who took 10,115 thumbtacks and made an incredibly realistic portrait of Cal Ripken. The overall project took 30 hours and all those thumbtacks cost $400, I’d say it was well worth it. Enjoy!
