Hangin' With Erin Andrews
We were lucky enough to spend part of Saturday with Erin Andrews at Major League Baseball's All-Star FanFest in Manhattan. (Bonus picture of Andrews can be found here.) Andrews, who was there to greet fans and take pictures, thought nobody would show up to her area. She was wrong. We watched her interact with fans of all ages, including a baby who didn't want to be held by Andrews (he'll regret that later in life) and a middle-aged man who just stood about a foot away from Andrews and stared at her for about a full minute while shaking his head in disbelief and commenting over and over about how much prettier she is in person (which is true, but the scene was still creepy). But the highlight (or maybe, lowlight) was when Howard Stern wack packer High Pitch Erik stepped up. The longtime Stern character didn't get a picture taken with Andrews. He just asked her who she was and if she wanted to go on Stern's show. When Andrews told him that the show should go through ESPN to book her as a guest, he then asked her for her phone number. Seriously. And if being targeted by High Pitch Erik wasn't enough excitement for Andrews, she also was taken No. 1 overall in this Sports Network Fantasy Draft, which proves that, yes, you can have a draft for anything. (Thanks to Kristan K., of Shannon, Ill., for sending us the link.)

When In New York...
We saw none of last night's Home Run Derby (as our favorite sports-talk radio host Chris Russo says, we wouldn't watch it even if it took place in our backyard), but judging from our inbox, the highlight (after Josh Hamilton's impressive showing) was Chase Utley dropping an F-bomb on the New York fans.

Painting Video Of The Day
We received many thumbs up on the video we posted last week of a guy doing some interesting drawings. This isn't quite as risque and it's painting instead of drawing. But the end result is still pretty cool. And if you like it, you may might enjoy this, too.
