Wednesday, February 22, 2012- Tampa Bay Ray 3b Evan Longoria recently admitted that he was in fact dating Playmate Jaime Edmondson. No confirmation as to whether the "admitting" took place via the roof of Empire State Building, or national TV, nationally syndicated radio show, social media, message in a bottle. Look at that picture. I would admit that to my wife.
From the "Sun was in my eyes" file- Mizzou really got caught looking ahead to what may be there final match up with long time rival KU Tuesday night. Kansas State took them to the woodshed and embarrassed them on their own floor, maybe exposed them a little, all but insured there will be no 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. This may leave a taste so bad in Tiger mouths that they may not lose sight of the prize again this year. Even if they lose to KU in Lawrence, which is likely.
From the "run like hell" file- Former NBA enforcer Charles Oakley needs some attention. So he calls out NBA stars past and present. Oakley on Celtic Kevin Garnett: "He hollers and makes alot of noise but he's not tough. He's one of the weakest guys to ever play." and Kendrick Perkins "is just like him. I played for 18, 19 years and only got dunked on three times." On TNT analyst Charles Barkley: "He's a coward and a fraud. He was a good player for his size, but not a leader or role model. He wants to be funny on TNT. They're a bunch of clowns on that show." I have no idea what kind of shape Charles Oakley is in now, or what would motivate him to challenge men half his age to fight. Barkley I get. But in Oakley's prime? These three could walk together and better cross the street to get out of his way. They couldn't handle him with pistols in a phone booth. Probably still couldn't. Still , "coward" and "fraud" could be considered mean-spirited.
