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 Playstation Network password. Because what are the odds?
-The “Halladay is Human” party continues, as the Braves bested the Phillies for the series win on Sunday. Cliff Lee takes the mound tonight as Philadelphia visits the St. Louis Cardinals.
-Man, bad weekend to be a New York Yankee. First they get swept at home by the Sawx, first time since April 2004. Now there’s all this hoopla around Jorge Posada refusing to bat ninth and removing himself from the lineup. Derek Jeter is doing his best to quell the situation. And now they’ve got a big series against the Tampa Bay
Devil Sunshine Rays where they will look to close the gap they fell into over the weekend. As always, ten reasons the Yankees should be nervous. Reason #1? The world is ending this Saturday, duh!
-Josh Johnson and the Fish take on the New York Mets tonight at the
Shea Stadium Shitty Citi Field. The Mets will be without David Wright for some time, because of a stress fracture in his lower back. I’ll be at the game tomorrow, so no Drive tomorrow guys.
Jwoww, Camels, Ochocinco, and the Greatest Beards of 2011, after the jump.
-JWoww in workout clothes is better than most chicks naked. (via)
-For some reason there is no hockey tonight. Boston plays Tampa tomorrow, and Vancouver vs. San Jose is on Wednesday. Madness, I know.
-Somebody bought the Astros.
-Chad Ochocinco rode a bull over the weekend, in his continuing efforts to make me not give a shit.
-NFL and the NFLPA are going to meet in Minnesota. Jesus, they couldn’t find a hotel with a conference room in Oklahoma City? Take the NFL and NFLPA heads to Vegas, give them 24 hours and you’ve got a deal.
-A collection of the greatest beards at the 2011 World Beard Championships. I’m definitely in for next year.
-Finally, this is why you never get to close to a camel. That, and they are terribly racist animals. (via)
