A-HOLE-ROD Twice over the last week Alex Rodriguez has has some "adventurous" trips around the basepaths. Last week it was the totally cheap-ass take-out slide / elbow piledriver to Dusin Pedroia's crotch. This week in Toronto, while running between second and third he called for a pop-up while behind the third baseman, causing him to give up on the play and the ball fell. While I don't think this is the capital offense some have made it out to be, it is a pretty bush move. Couple those with the infamous Arroyo ball play, and the conclusion is that Slappy McLipstick is something of a prick.
BO KNOWS... Last weekend I found myself watching some of "Lethal Weapon 2" and there was a moment in the film where a tv showed one of the old Bo Jackson nike ads, and Danny Glover mutters some comment. I said to myself, "God. Remember Bo Jackson?..." A couple days later I came across this great article about Bo Jackson and what an exciting athlete he was. Little-known fact: Bo was drafted by the Yankees in 1982, but opted to go to Auburn instead.

Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach Larry Zierlein apologized Thursday for accidentally e-mailing an explicit sex video to numerous NFL employees, including league commissioner Roger Goodell.

GREEK GOD OF
BARRY BONDS' HEAD WOULD STILL BE SWOLLEN W/O STEROIDS Barry Bonds has no plans to give the Hall of Fame anything from the game when he break's Aaron's record...
NEW YORK (AP) - [link] As Barry Bonds nears his record 756th home run, he's stockpiling quite a collection of souvenirs — bats, balls, helmets and spikes, pieces of baseball history perfectly suited for the Hall of Fame.
Whether he'll donate any of them to Cooperstown, however, is in doubt.
"I'm not worried about the Hall," the San Francisco slugger said during a recent homer drought. "I take care of me."
Stay classy, Barry. Douche.
As Deadspin reminds us, don't feel bad for the Hall and its Director. He's the dick that banned Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon from a recent celebration of "Bull Durham" because they were critical of the War and the President.
