You know I wrote "McMahon!", right?: "The only thing I can tell you about this photo is that it is, indeed, Ex-Bear (and Charger, Eagle, Viking, Packer, Cardinal and Brown) Jim McMahon and it was taken by a friend of TSB last week at Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut. I have no idea who the lucky ladies are, although he does have two daughters, so perhaps he took the family on a luxurious vacation to tropical Uncasville, CT." [The Sporting Blog] • Manny being bye-bye: "Much of the commentary thus far has been along the lines of, “the Red Sox are a worse team today than they were yesterday. That’s true if you assume Manny’s in the game. As Peter Gammons pointed out recently, he’s shown a tendency to ask for some time off when the Sox are facing particularly tough pitchers: this year he’s sat against Verlander, Duchscherer, King Felix (twice), and Joba (twice). Against those four pitchers he’s 3/20 with 7 Ks and no extra-base hits. (Amazingly, he appears — at least according to ESPN — never to have faced Joba.)" [Feeding The Monster] • Manuel not so subtly implies the that Nationals will get pegged: During the postgame press conference, David Murphy (I think it was Murphy) asked Charlie if he thought Jesus Colome and the Nationals were throwing at Utley. Cholly replied “absolutely I do,” and pointed out where Nats catcher Jesus Flores was setting up (pretty much directly behind Utley). When asked if that was something the team would react against in the future, Charlie replied, “that is something that you don’t say a word about,” leaned back in his chair and ended the interview. [The Sports Complex] •Who's the better DUI offender in the Michigan/OSU rivalry?: "The Michigan-Ohio State rivalry does not just happen on the football field as to see who is better, it is constantly debated in several different stages. For instance it is a fact that Ohio State is better then Michigan at drinking motor oil, wearing overalls, and incest. Meanwhile Michigan has a clear advantage over Ohio State in reading, holding a steady job, and not drinking motor oil. However neither side has been able to tell who was better at getting arrested for a DUI until now." [The Angry T]
