The fact that Peyton Manning and Todd Helton were University of Tennessee quarterbacks at the same time is old, well-known news. That’s why you shouldn’t be surprised to see them pose for this picture at Coors Field this afternoon.
But what the hell is R.A. Dickey doing there? He’s not even looking at the camera and seems like the dude that no one wanted in the picture.
Well, it turns out that Dickey was at UT at the same time as Peyton, though he didn’t play football there. Either way, it’s a funny picture, especially if you take it at face value and think Dickey doesn’t belong there.
Even though Justin Verlander won the 2011 MVP and Cy Young awards, the Detroit Tigers’ ace doesn’t put himself above anyone. Verlander checked out a New York City little league game after appearing at the MLB fan cave and decided to tweet a bit about it.
Now I’m at Murry Bergtraum Blazers vs Midwood Hornets game in downtown NYC doing some play by play #whynot?
Phrasing and word choice are everything, and Matt Stairs proved that to be true back in 2008.
Towards the end of his career, Stairs became a pinch-hitter with out of the park power. He only had 17 regular season at-bats with the Phillies in 2008, so when he hit a game-winning bomb in the playoffs, Stairs was rather emotional:
When you get that nice celebration coming into the dugout and you’re getting your ass hammered by guys — there’s no better feeling than to have that done.
See? Couldn’t he have just talked about camaraderie and brotherhood?
Instead, he comes off as a dude who craves a dick up his bunghole. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but phrasing and word choice are everything.
Like many players, Steve Francis came to the New York Knicks and his basketball career instantly went downhill, ultimately leading to his retirement in 2008 at age 31. However, the early end to his basketball career didn’t damper Francis’ spirits, and the former all-star point guard went into music.
Without further ado, here’s Francis’ “Finer Things.” Thank me (or, more likely, look up my address so you can shoot me) later.
I think it’s safe to say it would behoove Francis to find another use for his time and money.
So first of all, the Boston Celtic who missed the entire season after undergoing heart—yes, heart—surgery wants food that definitely isn’t good for his heart. Secondly, if someone would deliver you food upon request, wouldn’t you ask for something better anyway?
So, Roddy, you’re also a falcons right? And are you guys going to take pics in photobooth like middle school girls or is the veteran cornerback, who once nabbed 10 interceptions in a season, going to get lots of picks?
