Since most of you this weekend have been laying next to a pool, drinking Mai Thais and nibbling on shrimp kabobs there's a good chance you missed all the fuss Saturday night at Dodger Stadium. Let's catch up on the news of how Chavez Ravine had to evacuate its upper deck after a fire broke out in a storage room, causing fans to think Frank McCourt was looking for his revenge. Photos - JUMP!
Finally! We'd been hearing about this Kirk Gibson taking a digger video from Friday night for a few days, but it had yet to be uploaded until last night. Our tipsters kept telling us that we needed to see Gibby going face first into the dirt at Chase Field. Well, we've now seen it and can confirm that this is right up there with Pedro Martinez launching Don Zimmer in the "MLB Managers Going Digger" category. Impressive feet, Gibson.
Imagine your luck. You go to a May game at the Ballpark at Arlington and the Rangers staff offers up the chance to walk through the dugouts - for FREE! Fans attending last night's White Sox-Rangers game took a free tour of the underbelly of the park rather than die. Smart move because as you'll see, after the jump, a wicked storm dumped piles of golf ball size hail on the field.
Yet another big night for fans at Citizens Bank Ballpark in Philadelphia last night as Chase Utley returned to the lineup to a standing ovation and Phillies superfan bringin' it like a champ. Of course Philly pounded out 14 hits on the Reds and Utley went 0-for-5. Order your very own Mets Suck shirt on Cafe Press for only $23. Get that shirt on a television broadcast and we'll run your photo. Deal?
Cam Newton spent his Friday at a school in Santa Monica, California telling the kids how to get the best deal from SEC schools if the kids are good enough to play QB in the legendary conference. He also told them that Mississippi State couldn't promise a big enough check to his dad so the family thought the best place for Cam's talents would be Auburn. BC also learned that Cam can rock a pair of Euro shorts. Totally getting a pair of these for the summer. Dude is on a role.
Keeping with our May tradition, BC watched somewhere around 5-8 minutes of last night's OKC 106-100 victory. Instead there was some House Hunters (hoping to catch a new Extreme Couponing) followed by last night's new South Park where Tea Baggers overrun a Fed Ex. The highlight came when white boy/wigger 'Playa' wearing his LeBron James jersey started grabbing his junk and holding a 9mm to heads. Three more screencaps of the hilarity - JUMP!
Yes, your loyal blogger finished up a Maria Sharapova post late last night, looked at a clock and raced to catch the final five minutes of Bulls-Heat. The timing was perfect because Omer Osik was about to get bludgeoned by Wade in a collision that left the Euro looking like he took a blade to the throat. We give you Dwyane's sliced forearm - AFTER THE JUMP - if you're into blood and the NBA.
