ITEM: I see that the reason Yovanni Gallardo on the Brewers has been pitching so bad has come out. He got pulled over last night doing 40 in a 55 and blew a .22 on the breathalyzer. Note to Gallardo: Home plate is easier to see when there aren't six of 'em. This kinda thing only happens when your brand-new season is about to go spiraling down the tubes. Sorry for your luck, Brewers fans. Maybe if the team suspends Gallardo, he could work as mascot- God knows he has the qualifications, eh?

Kinda like the good impression you get with 4 unnecessary accent marks going one way and 10 more going the other, right?
ITEM: Last I looked, the alleged doubleheader between the Colorado Rockies and the "wishing we were home" NY Mets is still being delayed despite the owner of the Rockies picking up a shovel and aiding in digging the field out from under 7 inches of snow. They were supposed to play one at 3 pm our time and the other around 9, when it will be a sweltering 38 degrees. Guys, it's the Mets. And you. Just cancel out, go back to the hotel, have some hot chocolate, and hope for better weather tomorrow. Maybe play a triple header?
|Not the owner, but GM Dan O'Dowd. You know you hire guys for this stuff, right?|
Kamil Brabanec scored with about a minute and a half left to give Zvolen a 2-1 over Kosice and the Slovak Extraliga title. Zvolen is a town of 43,000 best known for, well, winning their second Extraliga title yesterday.
Snorre Hallum scored 4:45 into OT to give Stavenger's Oilers a 4-3 win over Valerenga and a 4 to 2 win in the Norway GET-Ligaen finals Sunday. Be sure to stop by the Museum of Petroleum while you're there. This is the third time in 4 years they've won it all, and two of those have been against Valerenga.
Bern slammed Fribourg 5-1 today to win the Swiss NLA title, their 13th. Brothers Alain and Pascal Berger each scored in the game.
For those still paying attention, that leaves us Sweden, Finland, Germany, Denmark, and the KHL to go.
