The Daily Drive is a daily (almost) 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. Relax baby, daddy’s back.
-The Florida Marlins and Philadelphia Phillies played baseball this past week. I didn’t notice.
-New York Yankees journeyman Brian Gordon took the mound today against the Texas Rangers. That game is currently in the 11th inning tied 2 all. If you think I’m going to come back and edit this out and put the result, you expect way to much of me. **Yanks win 3-2 in the 12th on Brett Gardner’s RBI single. Don’t worry DP, that’s what Papa’s here for. **
-Aw Phillie fans don’t love Ryan Howard.
-Those damn New York Yankees are stealing signs now, according to, if I’m pronouncing this correctly, Yorvit Torreable. The Texas Ranger’s catcher then said that he would be taking his glove and going home, and that he would not be sharing the juice boxes his mom brought with anyone, especially Andruw Jones.
“Always Sunny” preview, Stanley Cup riots, and a look at cooking shows through Randy Marsh’s eyes, after the jump.-The 15 most laziest players in Major League Baseball. Hey, look! A Florida Marlins player made the list. Oh, wait. Fuck.
-Another look at Boston: Sportstown USA, courtesy of the Bleacher Report.
-That’s Erika Mitdank, reinforcing my belief that girls who spell it “EriKa” are better than girls who spell it “EriCa.” And you can’t dispute science. If you take anything away from this blog, let it be this: Google her.
–Golf’s happening. Quite possibly at this very moment. It makes me sick.
-A University of New Mexico football player was arrested for wearing baggy pants on an airplane.
Sgt. Michael Rodriguez says 20-year-old Deshon Marman was boarding a flight Wednesday to Albuquerque, N.M., when a U.S. Airways employee noticed his pants were “below his buttocks, but above the knees, and his boxer shorts were showing.”
Marman’s mother, Donna Doyle, tells the paper that her son had attended a friend’s funeral and he was still in an emotionally raw state.
I can sympathize with that. I remember when my Uncle Mick (ironically Italian) died, I don’t think I stopped rolling up one leg of my sweatpants until at least a month after the funeral.
-Not sports related, but who doesn’t love “Sunny”? Screen Junkies takes a look behind the scenes at the 7th season. Fat. Mac.

-This is a collection of “Cooking Money Shots” (I wonder what the google search results for that will be like.) It starts off funny, gets arousing, and then, gets funny again.
-Here’s the trailer for “Moneyball”, with Brad Pitt (for the ladies) and Jonah Hill. I don’t know, it looks… good? Yeah, let’s go with good.
