Remember that delightful helmet David Wright of the New York Mets wore last year? Of course you do.
The helmet is designed to protect a batter from a 100-mph fastball, along with re-entry through the earth’s atmosphere.
Thanks to the Major League Baseball players union, the monstrosity, called the S100 by Rawlings, is not standard issue. Though, […]
Craig Malisow of the HOUSTON PRESS reports:

The ABC-TV affiliate in Augusta (WJBF) and the Fox-TV affiliate in Atlanta (WAGA) had the unfortunate idea to run polls about the proposed latent homosexual all-white basketball league by Don “Moose” Lewis.
(Think he’ll spend the evening alone?)
The Atlanta TV poll asked viewers: “Do you think Lewis’ all-white professional basketball league is racist?” 54% responded, […]
Billy Byler of the AUGUSTA CHRONICLE has what seems like a harmless press release about the formation of a basketball minor league:

Terry was the first member of the vaunted Bobby Bowden family tree to be unceremoniously dismissed from D-I in 1998; brother Jeff left his post as FSU OC during the 2006 season, […]
Usually, we don’t do stories about semi-pro football unless something amazing happens. And by “amazing,” of course, we mean “awful, inhumane, and bloody,” which is precisely what we have here: a referee taking a helmet square in the face.
(The good news is, he’ll be okay, so all “smashmouth football” jokes are totally in play.)

Ed Price at AOL Fanhouse reports this weekend that Phil Cuzzi, the umpire who botched the Joe Mauer fly ball call that may have cost the Twins a win in Game 2 of the ALDS, was previously fired from professional umpiring after he failed to impress supervisors during call-ups from the minor leagues.

Howdy, folks. It’s been a week since we last brought you the cheapest seats on STUBHUB.COM that we could find, and rest assured that we haven’t rested in our search to bring you live event entertainment. Because why sit at home with your family/pets/silverware when you can actually go to a game, get slaughtered on […]
As we mentioned over the course of the season, the hit concession item of the season had to be the West Michigan Whitecaps’ “Fifth Third Burger,” a four-pound behemoth that clocks in at nearly 5,000 calories. It’s good for you, though. Just, um, take our word on that and eat it. Do it.
