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. You want to know why Obama won’t release those Osama bin Laden death photos? Because we haven’t given em to him yet.
–It’s Star Wars Day (may 4th, may the force, ahh you get it) so there’s going to be Star Wars related content sprinkled throughout.
-The Flyers travel to Boston tonight for Game 3 of their series which sees the Bruins up 2-0. While Jeff Carter’s involvement in tonight’s game is still being kept a secret, Chris Pronger is out. While I don’t see the Flyers winning the series, I think they light Tim Thomas up tonight. (PHI 5, BOS 1)
– The Yankees take on the Tigers tonight, and it’s only the first week of May and there are already a slew of articles pointing out Jeter’s demise.
-Only 4 teams in the
NHL NL have a winning record. One of those teams? Just my wild card pick and hometown heroes, the Florida Marlins.
Olivia Munn as Princess Leia, Phillies Roster questions, sexy robots, and more, after the jump.
Help me take of this metal bikini, you're my only hope
-The Phillies take on the Nat’s tonight, and with the team getting healthier in the coming days and weeks, roster decisions are to be made.
I could watch Star Wars kid all day.
-Rashard Mendenhall said some things on twitter the other day in regards to the bin Laden news (he’s in town? this Saturday?? AT IRVING PLAZA??!!) that he is now trying to set straight.
-The Caps and Lightning face each other tonight, 24 hours after Washington collapsed in the 3rd period and essentially gave the series to Tampa Bay. Bruce Boudreau’s job is on the hot seat (video in the article, worth the watch if you enjoy fat people getting agitated and let’s be honest, who doesn’t?), which is what he normally thought was reserved to keep his buffalo wings warm.(TAM 5, WSH 2)
I'm pretty sure those are the droids I'm looking for
-The Red Wings change things up at home, and are looking for a win against San Jose. Is there any way neither of these teams can make it past the second round? (DET 4, SJ 3 OT)
-Francisco Liriano no-hit the White Sox yesterday.
-Finally, here is a 3 year old recapping “A New Hope”. But what did she think of Empire?
May the 4th be with you guys.
