Today’s SPORTS has us talking about the Cardinals, some big losses to other MLB teams, plus one makes a big addition. The NBA and NHL Playoffs continue. Some UFC notes, a hike for the curse, and Tom Brady in a FunnyOrDie.com Video.
Last night Yadier Molina went 4-4 with 3 RBI but the team STILL fell to the Atlanta Braves 5-4. Jake Westbrook picked up the loss as the team just couldn’t stop the Braves. The Cards and Braves are at it again tonight as Kyle Loshe takes the mound. First pitch is scheduled for 6:10PM.
Other baseball notes: Roy Halladay of the Phillies was put on the disabled list yesterday with a strained right shoulder. He’s expected to miss about six to eight weeks. Another big arm heading to the DL, Jered Weaver of the Angels is out with back spasms. And…pending a physical reports are coming out that the Texas Rangers have signed free agent pitcher Roy Oswalt to a minor league deal. He’ll make his first minor league start as soon as Saturday.
Spurs continue to roll as they win their 20th game in a row as they beat the Thunder 120-111 to go up 2-0 in that series. Game 3 is Thursday in Oklahoma. Game 2 between the Celtics and Heat goes down tonight.
NHL Stanley Cup Finals kick off tonight…The Kings take on the Devils tonight at 7PM. You can see the game on NBC.
Terrell Owens is pretty much bottom of the barrel right now. He was just cut from the Allen Wranglers INDOOR FOOTBALL LEAGUE. It came down to him not being a team player. He actually said he wouldn’t play in some away games, and no-showed a visit with the team to a children’s hospital.
UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones pleaded guilty to DUI that he was popped with earlier this month. He faces up to a year in jail and will be sentenced in June. Other UFC arrests – ring girl Arianny Celeste was arrested this weekend for kicking her boyfriend in the nose.
A group of hikers named “Crack The Curse” walked a billy goat named Wrigley 2,000 to Chicago in attempt to remove the curse on the Cubs. The walk actually raised some cash for cancer research which was cool, but the walk started on February 25th in Arizona and ended yesterday. If you don’t know the story of the curse, you can read about it on the blog, but basically, a dude had a smelly goat in the stands, and people bitched, he left, and the Cubs haven’t won since. The hikers raised a little over $19,000 for cancer research!
TOM BRADY plays himself in a ridiculous new video on FunnyOrDie.com. He’s at a sporting goods store looking for clothes, and the salesman can’t get over Brady’s Boston accent . . . even though he doesn’t have one. Then Brady gets angry because no one recognizes him . . . and one customer thinks he’s Matt Damon. The whole thing is an ad for Under Amour, but it’s still amusing. You can check it out HERE:
