Enter Sandman.

Mariano Rivera entered his final All-Star game Tuesday night to the familiar sounds sounds of  “Enter Sandman”  Which was particularly fitting tonight because approaching 11pm on the east coast after 7 1/2 dull innings, a lot of fans were already half asleep.

 

Three hits for the NL in the All Star game.  #SFGiants fans had to figure they were watching a repeat of their team’s last month.

 

I think I speak for all SF Giants fans in saying “Thank God we didn’t see a home plate collision between Prince Fielder and Buster Posey.”

Nike has pulled a number of T-shirts from sale after discovering they put a Carolina Panthers logo with the letters “NC” inside an outline of the state of South Carolina. Scary thing, I wonder how many Americans would have noticed.

Why should New York have all the fun with elections. Now we’ve got Liz Cheney running for Senate in Wyoming. Against an incumbent REPUBLICAN.

(my friend Jason suggests that Liz with her Tea Party style may cause Dick more grief than his Lesbian daughter did when Bush was out pushing a Marriage amendment.)

The head of the MLB Players Association says that it’s possible the players implicated with Biogenesis would not serve their penalties until 2014. Great, so instead of having a suspended player help determine home field advantage in the World Series, we could have one become the MVP of the World Series.

 

Some statements don’t even need a punchline: George Zimmerman’s brother on CNN, said that George “is going to be looking around his shoulder for the rest of his life,” looking out for people who “take the law into their own hands.”

 

 

Juror B37’s book deal apparently was killed before she wrote a word. Will her former literary agent claim self-defense?

 

God Bless America. In response to an email inquiry about train travel to England, Rail Europe reminds me “It is important to purchase your rail tickets prior to departing for Europe to avoid any language barrier, long lines at the station and sold out trains.” Right, especially that language barrier.

The California Supreme Court refused Monday to stop gay weddings in the state, a move that upset Proposition 8 supporters. But where are the cheers from conservatives who believe that government should stay out of our lives?

ESPN is already gearing up their British Open coverage. Is anyone but ‪#‎TigerWoods‬ playing?

From Jim Barach:   Chris Christie is set to appear on Michael J. Fox’s new show.  His camp says it has nothing to do with trying to get national exposure for a presidential run since the show will be aired on NBC.

One Comment on “Enter Sandman.”

  1. David Schwartz Says:

    The NL All Stars, with their pathetic offensive performance, were actually paying tribute to Bruce Bochy by trying to make him feel right at home.
