The Daily Drive is a daily (duh) post of all the prominent things going on in the sports world we didn’t cover, and anything else we might want to share with you. Because, you know, we’re socialists.
– Manny Ramirez is retiring, after being informed by Major League Baseball that he failed his second drug test, which would bring on a 100-game suspension. I don’t know how they expect the players not to do drugs with a commissioner named Bud. What’s that? Performance enhancers? LET EM FRY!!! Seriously though farewell Manny, while I’m sure everyone else on this blog hate your guts, I was always fan. Something about an athlete getting paid millions of dollars to play a kids game and not even trying just turns me on.
-How’s that taste Yankee fans? You just lost to the worst team in baseball (well technically, but the Mets aren’t in your league. Or anyone else’s. ZING)
-Brad Lidge is going to miss significant time. Man, those Phillies just can’t catch a break when it comes to pitching.
-The Heat and the Knicks are probably going to meet in the playoffs, and that makes Shaun Powell of NBA.com wet.
–NFL labor dispute NFLPA mediation who cares blah blah blah look what I found.
-That’s Katrina Bowden (yup, that famous guy’s granddaughter), who plays Suri on 30 rock and was just named your sexiest woman alive by Esquire. (via)
-Do I have another great picture after the jump, or more NFL labor talks?
Could you tell I'm a "butt" guy?
– That’s Karina Smirnoff, best known for being on Dancing With The Stars. But she will be reportedly featured in an upcoming issue of Playboy (per Hugh Hefner) and is rumored to be staring in my next wildest fantasy.
-With last night’s loss to the Thrashers, the New York Rangers lose control of their playoff destiny.
-One of my favorite blogs has this thing called Corgi Friday, and well if you haven’t already clicked the link you are dead to me.
-Someone threw a salmon on the ice during the Minnesota/Vancouver game on thursday. No joke necessary, they write themselves when you’re dealing with Canada.
-It only seems like weeks ago I was watching all that shit on the TV about the revolution in Arab nations and thanking my stars I lived in a country with a fully functioning government. D’Oh.
-And finally, here is a video in which a yellow dinosaur teaches kids about pedophiles. Man this reminds of Barney. My neighbor Old Man Richards used to let me come over all the time when I was kid to watch his Barney tapes. All I had to do was hand wrestle a giant worm in a box before each episode.
