LA LA land?

The Los Angeles Dodgers declared bankruptcy today. So does this really make them “America’s Team?”

Frank McCourt stated that despite the bankruptcy, for the Dodgers it would be “business as usual.”  That’s what real fans are afraid of.

Picture from my friend Daniel Silveira.

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez divulged that he has been playing through a secret knee injury, which he says he suffered a week ago while pivoting. Wonder which mirror he was in front of at the time?

Meanwhile, on Tuesday in Wrigley Field, number 75 takes the mound for the SF Giants for the first time since April 16. Hard to believe – all that torture in the past 2 1/2 months, and Barry Zito was nowhere in sight.

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was convicted Monday on 17 of the 20 public corruption charges against him. Blago’s biggest mistake? Deciding to commit high-profile crimes in Illinois instead of Los Angeles.

A former Citigroup V.P., Gary Foster, has been arrested and charged with charged with embezzling $19 million by transferring money from various Citibank accounts to his personal account at another bank. Great. Commit financial crimes against individuals, get arrested. Commit financial crimes against an entire country, get a bail out.

Serena and Venus Williams both eliminated at Wimbledon. Who do these sisters think they are? American men?

But really, Americans are out of Wimbledon, and now off the leader board at most PGA events. Baseball may yet again be the “Great American Pastime” – it’s the only summer sport we’re still any good at.

Fox News’s Chris Wallace now says he “messed up” by asking Michelle Bachmann whether she’s a “flake.” Apparently the network got an angry request for an apology – from Kellogg’s.

Michelle Bachmann has already mixed up Lexington, MA and Lexington, NH. Today she said, “John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That’s the kind of spirit that I have, too.” Except that the John Wayne from Waterloo was serial killer John Wayne Gacy, executed in 1994 for 33 murders. Think out of all those Gingrich staffers that quit Bachmann could find a good fact-checker?

    Cincinnati Bengal’s forever starving for attention Chad Ochocinco has announced his next publicity seeking stunts:

    – alligator wrestling

    – running pass patterns with a prosthetic leg

    – catching passes with only one hand

    LA Dodgers 15 Minn 0

    the Twins fans were secretly hoping Brett Favre would show up

    When you heard the news last week that Zito had thrown a 2-hitter at Triple-A and would be called up to pitch against the Cubs, did you think, ‘maybe he can hit?’

    The Mariners scored 1 run last night, losing to the Braves. When the other team scores 3 runs, the M’s fans only salvation is ‘did I bet 4 on the o/u?’
    _____
    Former Nationals skipper Jim Riggleman has a zero chance of ever managing in the majors again after quitting 1/2-way thru the season. However, I’m thinking he may be the ideal choice as a certain someone’s campaign manager, should she decide to decide if she’s going to run.

    Seriously, Michelle Bachman’s fact checker? Isn’t that unconstitutional? Take your pick: cruel and unusual or slavery. That’s a festival of jokes for funnier people than I. Counterfactual transgressions every time she opens her mouth.

  5. Gary Morton Says:

    So Michele Bachman makes a few factual mistakes now and again and again. But how much truth can she afford on a shoestring budget of $200-million a day?

    Looks like the Niners found Wrigley Field this afternoon.

    Lightning hit London’s Gatwick Airport Control Tower today. A few ATC workers were awakened by the jolt, hit the snooze button, and went back to sleep.
