Don’t bet on it.

Alex Rodriguez allegedly participated in illegal underground poker games, and MLB sources say he could face suspension. The Yankees are just hoping if so that the suspension is during the playoffs, since A-Rod seldom does much then anyway

To make this potential scandal worse, Alex Rodriguez had already been warned in 2005 about gambling in underground poker clubs by the Yankees and Bud Selig. Looks like A-Rod may have thought it was double or nothing.


Being “old-school” used to mean writing on paper. Now it means being addicted to using a keyboard instead of an iPad or iPhone.


Anheiser-Busch is trying to revive week sales in the U.S. for its flagship brand Budweiser. Wednesday they unveiled a new design for their cans. Uh, how about trying something radical like trying to improve the beer?


From T.C., with the signing of Plaxico Burress, the NY Giants have officially quashed their “Take No Prisoners” mantra.


The San Francisco 49ers unveiled a plastic model of their proposed new stadium in Santa Clara. Makes sense, led by Alex Smith, the 49ers may be a pretty good plastic model of a football team.


Since he was made an emergency starter April 28, Ryan Vogelsong is 9-1 with a league best 2.19 ERA for the San Francisco Giants. Just think, had the Giants given up on Barry Zito earlier, Vogelsong could be the leading candidate for the NL CY Young.


Notwithstanding today’s 8-1 rout of the D’Backs, the Giants have been worrying their fans lately. Meanwhile, across the bay in Oakland, A’s fans have a response to put San Francisco’s woes in perspective. Four words – “Swept by the Mariners.


Until today’s 8-1 win the Giants had never scored more than 6 runs in a game at home all year. Gary Morton said went looking for the game on TV this afternoon, saw the score, and figured he had accidentally tuned into the Sci-Fi channel.


A peacock flew the coop from the Central Park Zoo and hung out on a FIfth Avenue apartment ledge for almost 24 hours. But the bird returned on his own this morning. Yeah, it’s tough to find good long-term subsidized housing in New York.


Since Congress recessed without approving FAA funding, 4,000 FAA employees and 70,000 airport construction workers have been furloughed. Maybe we could have solved this sooner, along with the debt crisis, if we had put all members of Congress on a jumbo jet on some runway, and not let them off until they had a deal.


Texas Gov. Rick Perry says he supports states’ right to allow gay marriage — but he also supports a constitutional amendment to ban it. What is it with folks like Perry, Mitt Romney and John Kerry? Their positions don’t last as long as their hair gel.


In the midst of all the name-calling in D.C., Sarah Palin jumped in saying that if Tea-partiers were “domestic terrorists President Obama wouldn’t have a problem palling around with us. He didn’t have a problem palling around with Bill Ayers back in the day.” “Bill Ayers?” At this point? Does Sarah still have his name in Sharpie on her palm?

    As Monty Python once said in the Bruce sketch: American beer is like making love in a canoe. It’s like f–king close to water.

    Seattle police arrested a 29-year-old man suspected of robbing a Starbucks on Wednesday evening.
    Police said the man was wearing a Seattle Mariners cap — which probably guaranteed his anonymity as well as assuring the employees that the robber couldn’t hit anyone.

    (RE above article, commenter said I get robbed every time I go into Starbucks.)

    Alex Rodriguez allegedly participated in illegal underground poker games. MLB sources say they will speak with Rodriguez in the next couple of weeks. It might be; it could be… the chip’s about to hit the fan.

    “… “Bill Ayers?” At this point? Does Sarah still have his name in Sharpie on her palm?” Very good. I’m thinking she has Earl Butz’s name stenciled on hers.

    my goal is to outpost marc here. (kidding)

    Polygamist Warrren Jeffs slash pedophile, guilty as charged for child sexual assaut.

    No joke about the seriousness of the crimes, or the trial.

    Irony is that Mr. Jeffs will experience multiple sexual encounters with many different partners (as his religion allows) when they throw his rosy red ass in the slammer.
