Is this above clip from Simon Birch the best on-screen death in movie history? It's certainly possible.
- WOULD you wear this dude's baseball cap liners if he sent one to you? They fit inside the baseball cap and protect the head. Ashley Judd should have been wearing one! Anyway, the dude who makes 'em sent one to C.C. Sabathia, and he apparently wasn't interested.
- CAN getting injured during a baseball game be a good thing? I'll answer this: Yes! An injury to a boy in Royce City, Texas, led to the early detection of his leukemia and his three spleens. Three spleens! Quit hoggin' em all, kid!
- DO you like publicity stunts? Well! The Japanese knuckleball-throwing girl is now a member of the Chico Outlaws of the independent Golden Baseball League. Publicity stunt or not, good luck to her! I'd love to see a girl strike out Derek Jeter one day.
- WILL you be seeing any games at the newly-refurbished ballpark (called The Ballpark) in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, former home of the Maine Phillies? It's hosting the United States Collegiate Athletic Association 2010 National Baseball Tournament, whatever that is. Fun fact about The Ballpark: "Players were known to start fires out by the bullpen to ward off cold and bloodthirsty mosquitoes."
Slow-ish start to the week, but I'll have more tomorrow. Come back, please!
