Predictions from Page 2

Postby Sledge » Fri Apr 30, 2004 3:57 am

This has probably already been posted as it's a little old, and if it has I apologize, but in the slight chance it hasn't, I feel I have to share it.

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=gallo/april

Some of my favorites...

April 11 -- Seeking a way to block non-paying fans from watching games from nearby rooftops, the Cubs sign Mo Vaughn and place him atop their outfield bleachers, completely obstructing the view of the field for those across Waveland Avenue, as well as nearby aircraft.

May 4 -- Clowning around before a game with the Giants, Mets mascot Mr. Met attempts to place his size 74-1/8 hat atop the head of Barry Bonds, only to find it is too small.

May 25 -- Tom Glavine blames QuesTec after he locks his keys in his car.

June 10 -- The Cardinals' Jim Edmonds secures the final out against the Diamondbacks with an amazing, diving, circus catch in a 4-3 win. Later, Edmonds denies that he purposely ran several steps in the wrong direction as soon as the routine flyball left the bat so the catch would look more impressive.

August 31 -- Yankees' starter Kevin Brown, realizing it's nearly September and he hasn't been injured yet, goes into shock and is placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Sept. 12 -- Phillies outfielder Pat Burrell goes 1-for-5 in a win over the Pirates and raises his batting average to .074, prompting him to claim: "I feel like I'm starting to come out of my slump."

Again, if this has been posted already I apologize!

Sorry mods, I think I might of put this in the wrong forum.

Well I thought it was funny. And i think this is the right forum for all those who have Kevin Brown on their team, this is a reminder of the injury risk he poses. I would have to say that Ichiro is in the same boat as Jim Edmonds. He actually tells the Japanese Media that he often tries to make his catches look harder than they actually are.

I don't read their stuff much, but I don't find them very funny or very interesting.

June 17 -- The Brewers, for sale since mid-January, are purchased for $8.25 by a nine-year-old suburban Milwaukee girl at a yard sale near her house.

My favorite:

May 8 -- "Jet" magazine contacts Padres rookie phenom Khalil Greene about doing a cover story on him. The story is killed when the magazine's reporter discovers Greene is a white guy from rural Pennsylvania.

LOL, I can relate to that. I had no idea what Greene looked like until the highlights a few days ago, and it's not at all what I expected. I thought he'd be a little Latin kid. Who names a hick "Khalil"? They shoulda called him Cletus.

This is my favourite:

His family are B'ahai (sic? or is it followers of Bahai or whatever...I just heard it, not my scene) and there's some kind of meaning like 'kicks ass' or 'prince of peace' or something of that ilk. I can't remember exactly what though...
