Three, (well, 2 and a possible*)

Three, (well, 2 and a possible*) perfect games in the last 30 days, in baseball. Mind you the season just started. Hmmm…

26-year-old Dallas Braden walked onto the mound Sunday May 9th looking for his 18th-carer decision; he walked off of it with the 19th perfect game in MLB history. Braden is just the seventh southpaw to throw a perfect game in MLB history.

Philidelphia Phillies ace Roy Halladay pitched the 20th perfect game in major league history, delivering the marquee performance of his All-Star career in a win over the Florida Marlins on Saturday, May 29th.
We want to say that Armando Galarraga threw a perfect game on Wednesday, June 2nd. But we are not allowed to, technically. A perfect game is facing 27 batters and getting 27 outs — but the fact is that rightly or wrongly, Jason Donald reached first base with two outs in the ninth inning. Galarraga faced 28 batters, not 27, and one of them reached base. He deserved a perfect game; he did not throw a perfect game. I say, it was a perfect game!

Commissioner Bud Selig won’t reverse the umpire’s admitted blown call that cost Tigers pitcher a perfect game. Selig said Thursday in a statement that Major League Baseball will look at expanded replay and umpiring, but didn’t specifically address umpire Jim Joyce’s botched call Wednesday night. A baseball official familiar with the decision confirmed to The Associated Press that the call was not being reversed. WHAT, are you kidding me Bud!!

The real question I have is, are these pitcher really that hot this soon? OR, are the pitchers juicing (using steroids) more? OR, are the batters juicing less? Somebody let me know something!

Enjoy the Weekend,


LAKERS vs. CELTICS: Rivalry Renewed…Part Deux

LAKERS vs. CELTICS: Rivalry Renewed…Part Deux

A rivalry is two competing people, companies, teams, cities, or other organization. The rivals are not always similarly matched, but they are well known to each other.

Of course they remember the last time they faced their rival. Anyone with self respect would remember, the way their bus got rocked and their hearts got removed with a bare-handed clutch followed by a hard yank, how they were left not simply in defeat but in humiliation.

The Lakers do not forget 2008. The Lakers cannot forget that Finals. The Lakers will not forget what the Celtics did to them — what the whole city of Boston did to them, really — the last time the teams met for the championship. And the Lakers couldn’t even if they wanted to, not when everyone is tossing the memory back at them this week as the rematch approaches and the chance for revenge is at hand.

With that said, the time has come to separate the great from the good, the winners from the players, the CHAMPIONS from the contenders. Today a new chapter begins. How will it end? With tears of PURPLE & GOLD joy. My beast-mode has reached its boiling point, tonight WE feast on retched green flesh! NO MORE TALKING, game time….LAKERS, LAKERS!!! I say again, LAKERS!!! LAAAKKKKEEEERRRRSSSS!!!!!!!!!
