Playing catch up

Wow, we have been lazy. So, to summarize news that has caught the eye in the last couple of weeks:
  • Roger Clemens, like Barry Bonds before him, might be thrown under the bus by an ex-mistress
  • The Gotham Base Ball Club opened the season with a glorious win over the Excelsior Club, highlighted by a superb 2-3 double play with the bases loaded and one out
  • Larry Brown has inexplicably been hired by another team so he can "teach the kids" despite his pathological hatred of rookies
  • The Baltimore Orioles are in first place
  • Barry Zito is in the bullpen
  • An incredible replica of Ebbets Field has been constructed in Second Life
  • The Gotham Girls Roller Derby travel team soundly thrashed their rivals from Philly in an ugly penalty fest, with Andrew and David (aka Hewlett Smackard and Linear Aggression) working stats
  • Alex Rodriguez is on the DL, a severe blow to those of us who want to see him overtake a certain someone as career home run king
  • The various league commissioners will today (again) trash the idea of any kind of playoff for the college football championship
  • Missouri still holds the Silver Ball

Gosh, those are some awesome roller derby names. Who came up with them? Was it you?

You also need to remind everyone that the Gotham Girls Roller Derby league season begins May 10 at Hunter College. You can get tickets at the first link here.
