Is there anything more embarrassing for a #RangersRack participant than wearing a C.J. Wilson shirt in her rack photos? Ask Sara (@RangersGirl36) who appeared on BC earlier this week in her Wilson shirt and was promptly ridiculed by fellow Rangers fans who have turned the page on the lefty. So embarrassed, Sara went out today and picked up a new shirt she wanted to show you guys. Approve or disapprove? Full photo - JUMP!
When fans show up to an Anaheim Angels game in mid-April for Albert Pujols Bobblehead Night they expect to take home a piece that'll become part of their memorabilia collection. These people take their Chinese-made, $25 eBay auction value item seriously because the game isn't nearly as important as the 'free stuff' they get upon entry. So imagine Angels fan's anger when he/she saw how bad Albert's beard looks on the bobblehead. Controversy! JUMP!
So 49-year-old Jaime Moyer got that elusive victory making him the oldest pitcher in MLB history to win a game, beating the Padres, 5-3. He regularly hit 79 with the fastball and 70-72 with the changeup. Yes, batting practice pitches. How long has Moyer been around Major League Baseball? His first salary in 1986 with the Chicago Cubs was $60,000. And Moyer "made his major-league debut when Ferris Bueller was in theaters," according to the Denver Post. Let's get rolling!
It was early 2011 when a sideline reporter named Kristina Akra first burst onto the Internet scene thanks to her work in the SEC and with the New England Patriots. Certain sites posted bikini photos and claimed Kristina had a background with the Miami Heat as a dancer. That wasn't true at all. The bikini and dancer background actually belonged to her sister, Katherine Akra. Now the two are both working in baseball. Yes, this is HUGE news to us. JUMP!
Close your eyes for a second. Conjure up the image of a 25-year-old white guy who still collects baseball cards. Add in some drama to this guy's life, like armed robbery at a Kmart. Yes, armed robbery of packs of baseball cards. He's from Wisconsin, so that should also be figured into this fictional character. Oh, and he still lives with his parents. Do you have an image? Does your character look anything like Joseph Marciniak? He should. JUMP!
One thing we noticed last night about the fans behind home plate at K.C. games is that they are (1.) Overly obsese, (2.) White, (3.) 55+, (4.) Don't appear to be very wealthy, (5.) Share their seats with Tigers fan Bill Goldberg. Of course the Royals lost (3-2) - again - as Verlander threw a complete game. C'mon, white people of Kansas City. Find a new hobby. In other news, we hope doctors can save the Pakistani baby born with SIX LEGS! YES, 6 LEGS! Let's get rolling!
Sara sent us an email this afternoon re: #RangersRack. "Scuuba_Steve on Twitter said that you boys were on a mission! I know it's not TV coverage, but he recommended I send this to you anyway!" You know how we know this #RangersRack series is going to be huge? It's only April & some guy named Scuuba_Steve is sending ladies our way. That's power, folks. Relax, fellas, it's a Victoria's Secret Rangers shirt. BC approved for #RangersRack - JUMP!
Don't worry, there will be no Stanley Cup runners-up rioting this summer in Vancouver thanks to the L.A. Kings 3-0 series lead on the Canucks. That's right, #8 seed vs. #1 seed. 3-0 with two of the next three in California. Yes, you can buy your own Sedin Sisters t-shirt for only $17.99. In baseball news, the Dodgers this weekend turned one of the craziest triple plays in baseball history. The lesson here, kids, is to confuse the umpires into believing this is a triple play. Let's get rolling!
The Miami Marlins finally hit a homerun in their new stadium so you know what that means. This awkward structure of random Miami things got animated and water shot out of it. Omar Infante was the lucky Miami Marlin to nail the homerun in their new stadium. More Marlins memorabilia has been sold since the stadium opened than in the last 3 years combined. The video after the JUMP!
This graphics fail could have been a career ender for the intern working a SportsCenter Saturday shift. Look down at your keyboard and realize where the 'u' and the 'i' are located. Would've been the ESPN Intern Fail To End All Fails. Anyway, if you have time, tune in for some Rockets vs. Nuggers later this evening. In MLB news, could this be the end of Giants' closer Brian Wilson as we knew him? "Structural issues" in his pitching elbow. Let's get rolling!
There are a couple of things we focus on while watching the opening of a Yankees broadcast on the YES Network. First, who the hell is doing the color commentary that day. Oh great, another Ken Singleton afternoon. Wake me when the guy hits 1.5 on the decibel meter. The other is, "Holy shit, O'Neill and that bird nest is back." It's full-on Dustin Diamond this year. Love it. In the NBA, if you're Phoenix do you really want to make the playoffs? F-that. Let's get rolling!
Of course we Americans are big, fat pigs who'll consume giant food items because we're fascinated with challenges especially at baseball games. And here you thought Washington Nationals fans wouldn't order & eat the 8-pound, $56 StrasBurger. Blasphemy! Not only are they ordering it, they're documenting their exploits as if this is something to be proud of. You fat idiots deserve to die on the way home from blockage. Is that burger organic? Maybe we're in. JUMP!
The big news out of Southern Miss and Metairie, La. this week came from the school's baseball game against LSU where the ol' gunslinger showed up and decided to hang out in the dugout. LSU needed to get in a mid-week game so they invited Southern Miss to New Orleans to play at Zephyr Field. Good reason for a Brett Favre roadie. What else is he up to? Is it deer season? How did Brett got to the game? Guess. JUMP!
Well, that got old real quick. What was for a brief moment the cool thing to do with a pair of customized jerseys is now apparently what everyone is doing. The 99 problems and ain't 1 his and her customized jerseys were first spotted in Orlando, but they were seen this week at a Washington Nationals game. Soon, they'll be in a ballpark, arena or stadium near you. Can you wait? We certainly can't! JUMP!
You guys act like out of 80 some Rangers games you're going to get an insane #RangersRack on a daily basis. Isn't going to happen, assholes. There are days when we have to go with TatRack. She's not pregnant, just a professional beer slammer. Just look at that one button begging to be unleashed. Thing just blasts off and takes out Jim Knox's eyeball. Time for some of you to step up for this #RangersRack project. Mail 'em in: email@example.com
You know how we know the Cubs are off to a rough, 1-5 start this season? Chuck is able to spring for front row tickets. It's that simple. Chuck runs the Windy City now. The days of assholes in suits hitting a 2:15 first pitch at Wrigley seem to be over. In other MLB news, Boston is 1-5 and there are rumblings of this team being a giant disaster. The scribes are asking players how they'll be received when the Sox open at Fenway on Friday. With jeers, of course. Let's get rolling!
