Name changes, Jim Quits, catch of the year, and more in this edition of Rants and Raves.
Ron Artest is trying to have his name changed. Yep, you read it right. His attorney’s filed a petition in Los Angeles Superior Court, last week, seeking the name change. His new name he is requesting, Metta World Peace. He has done charitable work on mental health issues, and he has testified before Congress to support legislation concerning mental health care.
Okay so he was turning the Nationals around. But why do this?? What a team player former Washington Nationals manager Jim Riggleman is. He quit his team when he resigned, last Thursday, because he felt Nationals ownership wasn’t committed to him for more than the current season. Could you imagine Albert Pujols did this. He is at the end of his contract. What a loser Riggleman is. I hope he never gets a job in baseball again.
This has got to be the catch of the year…Watch this video and see….
Outstanding catch. God bless this Vet.
What has happened to American tennis?? Where is the talent?? This country use to dominate the Tennis world. Now, we are nothing more than runner-ups, and even that’s not true. Once the Williams sisters retire there is nothing on the women’s side. There is nothing on the men’s side who can dominate. Andy Roddick has to be the most overrated American men’s player ever. Oh well, at least the foreign women are cute, and I sure do like it when Maria gunts.
Speaking of tennis, Roger Federer lost in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in 5 sets. But what was amazing to this point was going into this match Rogers was an outlandish 178-0 when he was up two set to none in a tournament. That’s greatness.
Speaking of what happened. Where are the American golfer’s??? You would think winning a tournament which can earn you over $1 million dollars a week more people would get involved. With sponsors, and earnings an above average player can rake in $5 million easy.
Congratulations go to the South Carolina Gamecocks (55-14), who won the NCCA baseball tournament to become a two-time National Champion. In the process, they went 10-0 in the tournament, and with streaks of 16 NCAA tournament wins and 11 straight in the CWS are both records.
I want to wish all the Gabbers, a wonderful 4th of July. We are having a cook-out on July 3rd, when most of the family is off from work.
