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 pick for the Kentucky Derby. It was a heated debate in the 90on95 office, but we think the best bet for first place would be… whats that? This Saturday, like two days ago Saturday? Shit.
-Rough weekend for the Phightin’ Phils. They lost last night to the Braves, and placed Ruiz on the 15-Day DL today. While there are some positives in between all the injuries, they face a tough series against my surging Marlins starting today.
– Looks like Philadelphia Flyer Chris Pronger is going to need back surgery, which explains his sub par performance in the playoffs (and the fact that he wasn’t involved in many of the early games.)
-Derek Jeter has one good game and all of sudden he’s back, or so thinks GM Brian Cashman. The Bleacher Report has a piece on why Jorge Posada should retire right now.
Karissa Shannon, Phil’s last day’s as a Laker, and George the Rat, after the jump.
-The GM of the Los Angeles Lakers thinks Phil Jackson is going to retire. I reaaaally hope this leads to Kobe becoming a player-coach.
-Apparently George Steinbrenner became an FBI informant after he ran into some trouble with the feds. It’s like if Henry Hill was a fat old curmudgeon, and owned a baseball team.
No, no, that's not at all how it goes!
–That’s Karissa Shannon, who according to a google search, has many more sexy pictures on the internet. Oh, you expected me to tell you what she does? I don’t work for you. (via)
–This is a website called “Nudity For Charity” where girls (and some guys) post themselves clothed, and when they’ve reached their goal in donations from viewers, they post naked pictures of themselves. I know, I don’t know why you’re still reading this sentence either! (NSFW, obviously)
-Despite being hurt in Saturday’s game, Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics will play tonight verses the Heat.
-Great article on how the Nashville Predators are really opening up the series against the Vancouver Canucks. Or read this one, written by moi on the ressurgance of Tennessee sports. Game 6 tonight, 8:00. (NSH 3, VAN 1)
-Finally, it may be Monday and you might be having a shitty one, but at least you aren’t a homeless guy getting dry humped by a dog, right?
