Supposedly

According to WEEI, David Ortiz is going to have some sort of response/answers etc to the charges that he tested positive for some sort of PED in 2003 later this afternoon.

Stay tuned…?

UPDATE: Now there ISN’T going to be a press conference today. Ortiz said he doesn’t have anything new to report yet. Snooze.

Call it Getting Lucky with the Irish

oleary1Troy O’Leary, one of the most non-Irish ballplayers to ever suit up for the Boston Red Sox hasn’t been seen in the majors since he played with the Cubs in 2003.

Troy’s ex-wife, Annette Gray O’Leary (left) has been working as an assistant principal at Kyrene Del Cielo Elementary School, at least until June when it was discovered that in the evening hours she was working as an escort.

Going by the name Taya Taylor on various online escort sites, O’Leary advertises that for $450 she provides one of my favorite experiences — the full “Girlfriend Experience.”

Local parents, such as Stacey Ambert were outraged saying:

How could this not be found out before she got a job? It seems like there should have been some research. If there’s a job on the side that’s fine, but if it’s something that compromises character, especially when the school is promoting how much character is important and character counts, then that’s an issue.

I don’t see what the big deal is; it’s not like she was banging any of the parents — probably.

And it’s an elementary school, where, as the Prez notes on Barstool Sports where I first saw this story, “Who cares if the assistant principal is an escort. Kids that age wouldn’t know what that means if she was riding dick right in the middle of their four square game.”

Them Demons be Crusty

I don’t care at all for BMX or motocross, but if you’re on a team called the Crusty Demons I’ll throw up a gallery of some of your moves. Take note other motocross teams!

It’s Still Better than Being Named Rusty Kuntz

By far the best player in baseball, when Phat Albert steps up to the plate with his smug face on, as a pitcher you know you’re in trouble. But before you fret and start thinking about the many many miles of home runs that he has hit, take heart that some anonymous ESPN staffer is on your side. ESPN’s player card for Albert Pujols finally has the phonetics right for pronouncing his name. Enjoy!

And I think we can all agree that Albert has had just a slightly better career than ol’ Rusty Kuntz
