Good to be here. I'll be honest, I've been in better spirits. Two days ago my psychotherapist presented me with the Crybaby Award.
NO CHANCE FOR A WEB GEM
Major League Baseball suddenly canceled plans to have promotional symbols for the film Spider-Man 2 adorn bases next month. What happened? Did they find a bottle of andro in Peter Parker's locker?
MLB claimed the promotion was an attempt to attract kids to the ballpark. Oh, like all of sudden, eating sugar, hearing fat guys curse and watching your dad get hammered isn't attractive enough?
It's not the first time baseball has had a marketing tie-in with the movies. Don Zimmer still makes promotional appearances as Shrek.
The logo was going to be everywhere. Bases, on-deck circles, Barry Bonds's left biceps....
No, I'm wrong. Barry's left biceps already has a separate marketing deal with the movie Envy.
The Rangers came from 10 runs down to beat the Tigers 16-15 last week. See what happens when Buck Showalter finally gets some decent pitching?
The Dodgers are off to their best start in years. Great team chemistry so far. The other day Adrian Beltre popped up to second, and Milton Bradley offered to run it out for him.
IT'S NOT THE HEAT, IT'S THE HUMILITY
