Scottie Pippen Getting Buckets in Sweden


By 07.18.08

Oh, thank heavens baseball returned last night.  How did we ever get through one whole night without the drone of announcers over inaction?

NL — David Wright's two-run blast in the top of the ninth was the linchpin of a four-run rally that carried the Mets past the Reds in a 10-8 win, New York's 10th straight victory.  Billy Wagner reportedly pitched a perfect ninth for the save, but I'm not inclined to believe that… The Cardinals hit four solo shots off Jake Peavy — and not much else — in a 4-3 victory over San Diego.  The Padres' ace fell to 7-6, while Cards starter Kyle Lohse improved to 12-2… The only other game was Pirates-Rockies, and I'm not dignifying that with a recap.

AL —  Home runs from Gary Sheffield, Brandon Inge, and Marcus Thames powered Detroit over the Orioles, 6-5.  Sheffield' power surge after a disastrous first half came after a former player made a suggestion to Tigers skipper Jim Leyland over the break, which Sheff implemented.  "I'm not one of those guys who's not approachable. I try to take advice from everybody else," Sheffield actually said.  He then added, "Fuck off."

Golf — British Open muthafuckas!!!  After one day at Royal Birkdale — la dee dah, your majesty — Rocco Mediate, the U.S. Open's lovable underdog, had a share of the lead at 1-under.  In today's action, the weather sucks and Greg Norman has now taken the lead.  Awww, that'd be great to see him competing for the championship on the last day.  I haven't seen him massively choke in years.
