Leftovers From The Bon-Ton (7/16)
Posted by Ryne E. Hancock on July 16, 2007
After breaking up with my supermodel girlfriend and starting work as a cheesecake demo guy this weekend, I’ve come to realize that the world’s problems can be solved by eating cheesecake.
But anyway, here’s the rundown:
- Danica Patrick is well on her way to being the bitchy diva of the IRL. Instead of sparring with Dan Wheldon, she instead rips Ed Carpenter for not letting her challenge Dario Franchitti for second place, or even for her first win of her career. Of course, in the end, Scott Dixon would take his second win at Nashville and another cool guitar to add to his trophy case.
- The Philadelphia Phillies, in existence since 1883, lost their 10,000th game in franchise history to my St. Louis Cardinals last night. As you know, Scott Rolen started his career with the Phillies before God showed him the light and brought him back home to the Cardinal Nation where he won a ring.
- Speaking of the Cardinals, that whole thing between Albert Pujols and Tony LaRussa was much ado about nothing. That’s what 4 homers in three games can do for you and your team.
- Another rift was a fading memory yesterday as Tony Stewart won his first race of 2007 in Chicago, breaking a 20-race winless streak and moving him up to sixth in the points as well as putting the mess between him and Denny Hamilin behind him.
- I watched the Reds game on FSNOhio and was impressed by that moon shot Adam Dunn hit halfway up the scoreboard. Too bad he can’t do that on a winning team.
- On a personal level, I clinched at least a tie for the East Division title in my MLB.com league and could win it all next weekend should everything go well. Plus, I have a new blog, “Cardinals, Good Times, Girls, and Other Crap” on FoxSports.com. Make sure you check it out when you have time.
