here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
I am a casual baseball fan, and do not watch many games until the fall time. I do however like to keep up with the box score and stats of many Tigers players and have noticed that Verlander has been subpar this year. Can anyone shed light on his performance this year? Is it a mechanical issue, arm fatigue, injury?
Hey folks, seems like there is a good amount of World Cup interest here on the blog, so I figured we could have some fun making picks.
I'm not really a soccer guy myself, but it's fun watching the national tournaments. I've always rooted for France, adopted Uruguay last time, and of course will cheer on the red, white, and blue. So Allez les Bleus, <insert whatever Uruguayans say>, and Go USA!
Who's your team?
Aidan is an extremely talented, hardworking player, and I expect that she will be a regular starter next season at first base or in the outfield. MGoSoftball, perhaps a bit caught up in reverie after Aidan broke the NY state career home run record, went as far as to call her the next Romo. But regardless of her potential on the softball field, this story of her sister's illness makes it clear that we will have the pleasure of rooting for an outstanding young woman over the next four years.
Imbibing Bud Light and watching the Tigers beat up on the Sox. One is great, the other is not. The Tigers are up 8-4 going into the top of 9.
Edit: I decided to just add on to this thread. Tigers are down 0-1 on the way to the bottom of 3. Sanchez vs Lackey
I don't know much about horse racing but I do know that the Triple Crown is a big deal and hasn't been done since '78 when Affirmed won with an 18 yr old jockey. California Chrome is currently +125 on 5dimes vs the field and the race is set to go off at 6:50pm est.
