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. My idea on how to make the MLB All-Star game more watchable? Simple: make it a hockey game.
-The MLB All-Star game was last night, with the NL beating the AL. You’ll be sure to forget all about the game until the World Series when the Phillies have homefield over the Red Sox and every one bitches about the ASG.
-The New York Mets traded closer Francisco Rodriguez to the Milwaukee Brewers. Has the Mets firesale begun? Dibs on Ike Davis’ nose.
-Rounding out our baseball news, the guy who caught Jeter’s 3,000th is getting some help from major companies to help pay off the taxes on all the gifts the New York Yankees gave him.
Women’s Soccer, sports news, a hot girls, and a funny video, after the jump. I’m doing this on the fly, can you tell?
-WOMEN’S WORLD CUP UPDATE: The US women romperstomped the France national team (I think they’re called the “Bagguettes”) 3-1. Japan beat the Swedish women 3-1 as well, setting up a rematch between two WWII foes. Which would be so much better with men. Which is a sentence I will probably never utter again. Probably.
-JUXTAPOSITION! Kate Upton was at the MLB All Star Game Celebration all weekend. This may have been covered on this blog before. Either way you don’t care.
Those shorts are incredibly impractical for a game of baseball.
-Jame Harrison was interviewed by Men’s Journal and had some rather unkind things to say about Roger Goodell.
“If that man was on fire and I had to piss to put him out, I wouldn’t do it,” Harrison told the magazine. “I hate him and will never respect him.”
His other descriptions of the commissioner include an anti-gay slur, “stupid,” “puppet” and “dictator.”
I guess there is one guy hoping this whole lockout thing doesn’t end. Wow, and Big Ben is an asshole? (Yes.)
-The University of New Mexico player who was arrested for having saggy pants on airplane will not be charged. Because I follow up on my shit!
Look's like someone is unfit to fly. CALLBACK!
-That’s Jessica Jane Clement, courtesy of the always reliable WWTDD.com. Is it just me, or would it be a lot hotter if there was a tattoo of a hot girl on the side of the tattoo of the hot girl that’s tattooed to the hot girl.
-Finally, this video, courtesy of Puck Daddy, is of a Flyer fan getting what you get when you fuck with Tyler Myers, a defenseman for the Buffalo Sabres. It gets good around .40 second mark, but I enjoy a good buildup.
