Bye Bye Buddy!

boyerbartonIn a boring bit of baseball bartering, the Atlanta Braves bumped Blaine Boyer out of their bullpen — and beyond the borders of the Big Peach — in exchange for Brian Barton of the St. Louis Cardinals. The beer barons of Budweiser who built the basically brand-new ebullient Busch Stadium, believe Boyer will bolster their own beleaguered bullpen; Barton meanwhile will battle for ball-playing opportunities below the big leagues — in AAA.

Long Live Miss USA

It’s 4/20 and so my posting has been lazy today, hence the now three hot girl posts. However, I’d be remiss to not honor the women on the front lines for us, risking it all to become our next Miss USA. Thank you all.

Here is the final 5 during the swimsuit portion of the competition, choose your own winner.

Not to be all spoiler, but Ms. North Carolina wins it all.

I think we are all the real winners though; not only for celebrating these women and their scholarship tournament-whatever-thing, but for getting to listen to that AWESOMELY rocking out song the ladies walk around to.

A Mean Green Biting Fighting Doppelganger

Once the most feared man in boxing, Mike Tyson has since become so notorious for his actions in and out of the ring that at this point nothing he does surprises anyone anymore. For me, the day he got his face tattoo 6 years ago was when he reached that point. However, when he was in his hey-day, Mike Tyson was insanely awesome, watch this video to be reminded of just how incredibly fast and tough he was. Written as an intense, dark graphic novel, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were transformed by marketers into the more family-friendly, action-figured lovable turtles that were a part of my youth. Known as much for their love of pizza as their joy of fighting the foot clan, the TMNT were an integral part of my childhood, I still distinctly remembering seeing Secret of the Ooze in a theater so crowded I sat in the aisle; it was worth it.

Please VOTE in the poll below, your votes determine whether or not this doppelganger gets promoted to the PERMANENT DOPPELGANGER PAGE, every vote counts! Be heard!

Baseball Plus Hotties = Satisfaction

Because a cute girl in baseball clothes always becomes a hot girl, and because hot girls in Red Sox or Cubs gear really wets my whistle, thanks to the men at the suitably masculine Manofest comes a gallery of 75 hot women wearing baseball related clothing. Enjoy!

Also, I absolutely MUST meet this girl.  C’mon New England, help foster true love.

I’ve Always Wanted to Do That

Alas, I have not been blessed with height or jumping ability, and so the best I can do on a basketball hoop is touch the bottom of the hoop. That makes it nearly impossible for me to ever shatter a backboard. During the Premier Basketball League championship Rochester RazorShark Sammy Monroe stole the ball at half-court and went in for a dunk uncontested, the backboard didn’t make it.

The game was delayed over an hour, but the RazorSharks stayed fresh, ultimately defeating the Battle Creek Knights 152-115 in front of a crowd of 7,119 to win their second straight championship.

Wet and Wild College Bikini Girls

The USC Song Girls every year do a charity event benefiting physically challenged athletes, called “Swim with Mike,” the key draw for the benefit being the Song Girls in bikinis. Now, I could care less about college sports, but I couldn’t care MORE about college co-eds in bikinis. Now granted, many of the Song Girls are butter-faces, but in a bikini I’m paying less attention to the face anyways…

Sox Fan Takes a Dive

I don’t know when exactly this video is from, but I figure most people out there wouldn’t find for the opportunity to see a Red Sox fan take a swan dive onto concrete…

I bet that hurt a lot; although major props for actually making the difficult catch!
