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. Where we would like to promise we will never tweet you a picture of our privates. Unless of course you ask. Or, you know, you’re smokin’ hot.
-INTERLEAGUE PLAY! The Philadelphia Phillies visit the Seattle Mariners this weekend, as TimmyP previews. The New York Yankees are visiting the Chicago Cubs, where they are currently losing 3-0 in the 8th. To the Cubs. I cannot stress that enough. As always, for a full recap of that game which should be over by the time this is posted, turn on a TV.
-You know it’s sad when a team as storied as the Cubs are having such an abysmal season that the Yankees visiting for meaningless interleague play is a hot story. Meanwhile, SIGN STEALING GATE! 2011! Both Andruw Jones and Mark Teixeira both deny they were stealing signs. Oh they denied it? Surely it must not have happened then.
-JC Romero, always a class act.
-Rory McIlroy killed it again on the links today. This is going to make his inevitable Sunday collapse even better.
Chris Drury update, Osi apologizes and Erin Heatherton is a person, after the jump
-Chris Drury has a trick up his sleeve when it comes to this whole buyout mess with the New York Rangers. That trick? Come on Michael, the Alliance would have my balls if I let one of my illusions slip. Lets just say it has something to do with old man bones.
I’m sorry, but I love me some Arrested Development.
-Hooray! Corgi Friday!
-Osi Umenyiora is sorry, and he wants you to take him back, New York Giants. He promises, he’ll never look at another team again. Also, since I don’t play favorite, here are the top 5 Philadelphia Eagles most dominating moments vs. Osi and the Giants, courtesy of the Bleacher Report. It’s called adding fuel to the fire, Kyle.
-You’re never going to believe this, but remember that University of New Mexico player who was arrested yesterday for the baggy pants? (I know, I said no quizzes.) Well, he is claiming he was harassed. Can you hold onto my drink for me, I’m going to need both hands to make this dismissive wank. What, it’s 5 o’clock. Perfectly reasonable for me to be on my 3rd glass of Whisky. They get to drink at all hours of the day on Mad Men, and that show is on cable.
-NFL LOCKOUT!! 2011!!! ::Trey Wingo free bases cocaine off of Hannah Storms breast, Top gun theme plays:: Sports Illustrated has an article detailing that the end of the NFL Lockout isn’t necessarily a sure thing. And here I am, 4 months into the lockout, thinking they just had to fax over the paper work.
Maybe lose the fan?
-That’s Erin Heatherton. And that’s all. Courtsey of Egotastic.
-Gary Cobb takes a look at why the Philadelphia Eagles are showing interest in Reggie Bush. They know him and Kim broke up right?
-Now that the Philadelphia Flyers have talked to Ilya Bryzgalov about his new contract (no deal can be signed before July 1st, I believe), they are taking him around the town. And, if GM Paul Holmgren plays his card right, Bryzgalov may just let him go all the way. But he has to remember, Ilya is not that type of girl, Paul.
-Finally, this is a video (found via Filmdrunk.com) of artsy film hipsters getting punched in the face. Plus the chick doing the punching is pretty hot. Which isn’t the first time I’ve ever said that.
