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. Like our idea for America’s new number 1 enemy: Lindsay Lohan.
-Game 2 between the Flyers and Bruins is tonight, 7:35 pm in at the
Wachovia Wells Fargo Center. Brian Boucher will be starting for the Flyguys and some of the Flyers are looking to boost their energy tonight. An article over on NHL.com breaks down the differences in net for both these teams.
-Following their defeat to the New York Mets last night, the Phillies get some good news: Chase Utley is participating in simulated games. When I was a kid, whenever I read about about players taking part in simulated games during rehab from an injury, I always thought that meant that the players would literally just pretend to play a game, like at a desk, and be asked what they should do in each situation. I didn’t play a lot of sports growing up.
-Bartolo Colon gets the ball as the New York Yankees visit the Detroit Tigers tonight. There seem to be some disturbing recurrences when the Yankees play in Comerica. I always imagine a redneck pronouncing the name of that stadium. “We git thet damn there Obama Bin Laiden cuz we are teh git damn United States of Comerica.”
NBA metal detectors, Justin Bieber getting egged, and a second chance for the Sacramento Kings following the jump– The Sacramento Kings are staying in the state capital for at least another year, per the owners. The Kings were of course rumored all year to be heading towards Winnipeg er, Anaheim.
-The NBA, on the heels of recent world events, are mandating a presence of metal detectors at tonight’s Chicago Bulls game. The detectors will go off for obvious infractions such as a gun or knife, but will also go off for necklaces and rings and generally all forms of jewelry. Something tells me this game is going to take longer to get into than an airport terminal.
-Olivia Munn in a bikini on a jet ski? Why thank you sir, may I have another? (via)
–NFL lockout mumbo jumbo.
-Sorry it’s such a short drive, but I’m pretty sure today is some sort of national holiday so I’m off to drink. Here’s a video of Justin Bieber getting egged by fans while performing in Australia, which I had no idea up until now was actually in Philadelphia.
