The Daily Drive is a daily ( for the most part) 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 that writing jokes can get hard. See?
-Phillies Manager Charlie Manuel wants more offense, and he wants it now. Meanwhile Jose Contreras has been placed on the DL and the Phillies take on the St Louis Cardinals tonight.
-The Philadelphia Flyers have traded Jeff Carter to the Columbus Blue Jackets, clearing up salary cap room so the team can overpay for a mediocre goaltender. Hey Flyers fans, remember when I said you’d be mortgaging the future? The Flyers did get the number 8 pick in the draft that’s being held on Friday. More of that in my Draft Preview tomorrow.
-Despite what you may have heard, Jose Reyes will not be a New York Yankee this season. Yankee fans breathe a sigh of relief. Derek Jeter blows his nose in Minka Kelly’s chest.
-NEWS FLASH! Derek Jeters impending 3,000th hit (one hit closer to retirement, and hopefully, obscurity folks) will be kind of a big deal.
A Perfect (video) game, Clooney’s trash, and NFL LOCKOUT COVERAGE, after the jump.
-A man who became the first gamer to throw a perfect game in MLB2k11, and win a million dollars, used Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Philles. Of course he did. The Phillies are now his favorite team. Of course they are.
-The NHL awards were last night. Perry won the Hart. Linstrom the Norris. And you won. Cause you didn’t watch it.
-NFL LOCKOUT!! 2011!!! ::Erin Andrew’s dances to Whitesnake, Eli Manning stubs toe:: The NFL talks are moving forward.
-Chelsea FC announced that they found a new coach today. It wasn’t any of the guys I wanted it to be. Just like my first time.
-That’s the ass that George Clooney broke up with. OK, fine, if you want to be all technical about it, her name is “Elisabetta Canalis. Haha, “anal.” Don’t ever change, Clooney.
