Rollout (My Business)

I never knew wheelbarrow races could be so entertaining or exciting! I don’t know how long these two spent practicing this move but it was well worth it. This HAS to get them laid right?

The Luckiest Kid in America Last Week

Spencer Trapp, an 18 year old who plays football for Superior High School in Nebraska is fortunate to even be alive after a recent accident on the field. During the second quarter Trapp make a play and felt a little pain in his neck.

“When I went back and twisted I broke my 5th vertebrae and twisted it almost into my spinal cord. It felt like a strained neck but you don’t want to go out with a strained neck,” said Trapp. Thanks to the expert training staff for his football team, no one thought he was seriously injured and so Trapp later went out in the second half and made two more plays before finally coming out of the game. Later that night after seeing a doctor Trapp was informed he had broken his neck and after a CAT scan he was rushed into surgery.

“I just couldn’t believe it when the doctors told me that I had a broken neck, I played a football game with a broken neck,” Spencer said. “For the trauma team and all the trauma doctors they don’t understand how I walked in there and how I’m still alive and how I’m not paralyzed.” Neither do I! The injury, which normally causes paralysis at best and death at worst has sidelined Trapp but he remains able to walk and is expected to make a full recovery. His teammates have since shaved his number 10 into their heads to honor him as he remains unable to play and works on his recovery.

A Wild and Crazy Night at Dodger Stadium

Generally when you go out and pitch a no-hitter, you can chalk that game up in the win column. For the erstwhile California Angels, that was not the case Saturday night. Jered Weaver pitched 6 innings of no-hit ball but was lifted in the 7th for a pinch hitter. Unfortunately, thanks to two back-to-back errors in the fifth (the first of which was somewhat questionably), Matt Kemp had scored on a sacrifice fly, making the score 1-0 in the favor of the Dodgers.

Thanks to the asinine NL lack of a DH, the Angels were forced in a one-run game to remove Weaver in order to try and generate some offense. If only his team had a player that they could have hit for Weaver and leave him in the lineup, someone whose sole job it was to hit, thus enabling the pitcher to concentrate on just his pitching. Sigh. Continue reading ‘A Wild and Crazy Night at Dodger Stadium’

Uh Hideki…? (UPDATED)

Sports Frog has this fun little tidbit on paper fetishist Hideki Matsui that frankly blew my brain.

“In 2003, the Asian edition of Time Magazine did a puff piece on Matsui as he was coming to America, and reported that:

(Matsui’s) only eccentricity, if it can be called that, is his extensive private library of adult videos. His refreshing ability to laugh self-deprecatingly about his porno collection, reporters say, is one reason why fans and even nonfans have taken to him so much.””

ARTNET.com also has a link to a sports illustrated report that says “Matsui has 55,000 distinct items in his porn collection.” (link NSFW)

55,000? That’s a whole lot of tentacles…

Definitely read the Sports Frog article, as it is pretty damn funny.

And for anyone who was confused by J. Temperance’s comment in the original post, this is the bet he was referring to.

“Mmmm, stupid baseball game, now I have to wait three hours to pound one out…”
