Let’s Go Celtics!

It’s bad enough getting arrested, but having to hear that voice of what, I’m assuming was his girlfriend, is much worse.

He Must Have Been Lying About Something

pantsFresh off winning their 17th straight game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, you could say the Milwaukee Brewers are on something of a hot streak, which is usually a good thing; for Ed Seder, the first base coach though, not so much.

While standing in the dugout, Seder ventured too close to the portable heater unit at the end of the dugout. As the team was rallying in the 8th inning against the Buccos, Brewers pitcher Jeff Suppan smelled something amiss. “Somebody’s burning!'” Sedar recalled Suppan saying. “Luckily, I wear two pairs of socks. It had just started on the second pair of socks when ‘Soup’ said he smelled something.” The something was Seder’s pants catching on fire.

“I probably would have felt it,” Sedar shrugged. “The worst part is that I was thinking earlier, ‘That’s a little dangerous.’ I guess it’s funny that it happened to me.”

Seder went back into the clubhouse, put a new pair of pants on and came out in time to see the Brewers take the lead in the 9th inning en route to another victory.

Mind if I Play Through?

From this weekend’s Quail Hollow Championship, one of Jason Dufner’s tee shots squarely landed in the lap of one very embarrassed Miranda Cooper. Rules official Tony Wallin allowed Dufner to take his next shot from a spot on the ground underneath where the 18-year-old was sitting.

I’ve Lost My Train of Thought

A few weeks ago, distraught about my utter failings so far in fantasy baseball, I wrote a piece entitled “Forget Baseball, I’m Switching to Cricket,” for my good friend Garnold’s fantasy baseball related-site, I Truly Have No Life. It looks like that was a smart decision.

These photos are from a cricket game in Panama, and I’m booking my ticket as I type this…
