College Baseball Charades

I don’t think we’ve ever put up a post on college baseball, unless it had to do with the MLB draft, so I figured we were due for a cherry popping post. I ran across the clip above, and apparently this game between Florida Atlantic and Western Kentucky game was in the midst of a rain delay. I’m not sure exactly how these shenanigans started, but the two teams decided to play a game where charades meets “Who’s Line is it Anyway”. I’m not sure exactly how long this rain delay was, but I’ve never seen two schools put on a show of this variety on the field. I found some of them pretty good, but at the same time, I’m shocked the whole teams were participating on both sides. I’m kind of curious if the two teams went into the locker during times of heavy rain to make out with each other. Maybe they wanted to prove that they were worthy of replacing the bi-sexual guys that are getting sued in the gay softball league in SF.

Anyways, the highlights of the video as I saw them were:

  • 18-23 year olds playing imaginary shooting games with bats – Isn’t that why we invented video games? Maybe my imagination isn’t quite what it used to be…
  • Rockband – Not bad, but that was a weak mosh pit. I can see Betty White surviving that one without losing her balance once.
  • The Shake Weight – Very clever, easily an award winner of the limited selection of skits, If you haven’t seen the commercial, Mceezy did a post awhile back on it here if you are interested.
  • Dance off – They both just got served by humping the ground with a field full of guys.
  • WWE Wrestling – Reason #1 why I think they took breaks to run into the locker room to make out. Who knows maybe they did a little more than that coming out of the locker room with their clothes upside down.
  • INS – Strange to say the least. I’m guessing the Florida team is used to this from all their Cuban recruits…

In all seriousness though, this is one of the things that makes you realize how much more serious pro sports are. Can you imagine if any pro player participated in anything like this? They’d be crucified for possibly injuring themselves, and hurting their teams chances at the elusive title. Everyone gets pissed when they run and slide on the tarps during delays, so this would never happen in the MLB.

While we’re on the college baseball theme, in case you missed it, this was a once in a lifetime kind of play. I doubt we’ll see anyone taking the over the catcher somersault method of scoring, but I’m glad one person did it. Once again, this proves that baseball is truly the sport where amazing happens!


Daly Calling it a Career… Once Again

Only Daly gets a breast massage mid-round

John Daly said for the umpteenth time that he is done with golf. Not sure how likely it will be for good, since he’s made comments like this before. Either way I’m sad to see him go. He’s been known to quit, and sometimes has quit in the middle of a round, but today he sounded pretty serious saying on the Golf Channel after his round “I’m done, I Just can’t play like I used to… I’m tired of embarrassing myself.”

Strong words from a guy who never really seemed to care what people thought of him. It’s not like he was a big factor on the PGA as it’s been nine years since his last victory, but for whatever personal reason something told him he had enough.

I have a feeling that his ultimate demise had something to do with his lap band surgery, and how he lost nearly 100 pounds in just a couple of months. He looked like a shell of his former self, literally after the weight loss. Since the surgery, he hasn’t been nearly as good on the course, and looked even worse health wise. I guess some of that could well be father time doing the damage plus all those millions of drinks and smokes he had on the course. I’ll always remember him for his Happy Gilmore like attitude that screamed I don’t give a f*** what you think of me! One of my favorite examples of this isn’t his mullet, but when he was beaten by his girl, and he could have withdrawn from the tourney, but he still showed up scratched face and all. Much more than I can say for Tiger, and his assault case… Have we even really seen a picture of Tiger since it all went down? Whatever, hopefully he’ll join the senior tour, so he’s not out of golf for good. I wrote a tribute to him awhile back, but felt I needed to dedicate one more post to one of my all time favorite golfers. He was one of the main reasons I even tried golf out when I was a kid. I guess I just liked the mullet!
