What does ScottJax do at Jaguar games?? Did Mickelson win $$$ for charity?? All this an more and maybe even A-Dud, in this weeks edition of….
The dope got caught! Yep America’s greatest cyclist is not so great after all.
After battling testicular cancer and a tumor that was in his brain and lungs, he returned to cycling and won a record seven consecutive Tour de France from 1999 to 2005 riding for the U.S. Postal Service Pro Cycling Team. Now its being reported the people who were in charge of detecting cheating where “in” on the scam. To me these people who helped Armstrong cheat are just as guilt as he is.
Phil Mickelson missed a shot at $1 million during halftime of the Chargers/Broncos game. Instead he won $50,000 for the charity FirstBook. FirstBook connects book publishers to community organizations to get books into the hands of needy children.
I know the Jacksonville Jaguars are playing like crap, but there is a good reason to go. They have an outstanding NFL experience outside the stadium (within the fence perimeter). You can kick the ball and see if you can get it through the uprights, run for fun, pass the ball for prizes, etc. They also have pass Jaguar players and current cheerleaders doing autographs for free.
This is my favorite:
Everyone had their opinion on the Yankee - Tiger and the missed call by the umpire. I’ll take another approach, how many times have the calls gone the Yankees way. Many, many times. So I’ll take one bad call against 50 calls going the Yankees way. By the way that call didn’t cost the Yankees the game, it’s the crappy hitting by A-Dud, Cano, Swisher and others. The pitching is there where’s the hitting?
I guess A-Rod has more important things to do while a playoff game is going on. According to reports, Alex was flirting with two girls after he was yanked in the 8th inning of game 1 against the Tigers. These girls were two rows behind the dugout and Rodriguez sent them a ball bearing a note asking for their phone number. A witness said, “Alex was holding a pen and wrote a note on a ball which was thrown at the women by a ball boy. The girls, who had already caught two balls, seemed bemused at first and tried to hand the ball to another fan, but other fans noticed the note on it and yelled at them to read it. The note asked them to write their phone numbers on the ball and throw it back. “One of the girls, with darker blond hair, wrote on the ball and threw it back at A-Rod, who gave her a big smile. The flirtation stopped once Derek Jeter got hurt.” A-Rod is currently dating wrestler Torrie Wilson.
Speaking of A-Rod, if I’m the Yankees I would sit down with him and ask him to renegotiate his contract. If he doesn’t the Yankees should just sit him down and pay him not to play and eliminate any chance he might have had to break any major league records.
Til next time
