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. Just got turned onto turntable.fm, and “SNL in the 90’s” on VH1 is only a half hour into it’s 2 hour run time. I may get distracted.
-To add some more opinions on the Hunter Pence to the
Third Reich Philadelphia Phillies: They will overpay for him! They are the front runner for his services!
-Meanwhile, all quiet on the New York Yankees front when it comes to the rumor department. They did however activate Rafael Soriano from the DL. So look for him to cause problems and start giving up runs in no time.
-In U.S. soccer news, one day after the firing of the men’s coach Bob Bradley (YAY!) comes the hiring of German national Juergen Klinsmann. This is a step in the right direction for the US. Now, if only we could get rid of that asshat Landon Donavon.
– Pittsburgh Steeler James Harrison is apologizing for remarks he made earlier this summer. If I know anything about Roger Goodell’s tenure as commissioner, it’s that he is easily swayed by a sincere apology.
Sports stuff, a cute girl and a video selected at a whim, after the jump.-Looks like all that bullshitting finally caught up with Travis Pastrana.
Do your web browser a favor and google her.
-Sorry the picture is so large. That’s Rebeca Linares and I’m a huge fan of her work. Do yourself a favor, sign up for DailyMotion.com and have yourself a weekend. You’ve earned it.
-Vince Young Vince Young Vince Young (it’s for those hits kids, daddy needs sleeves on his shirt after all) signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, joining Michael Vick. Said my grandfather, “Well it always takes one to teach one.” I’m pretty sure he was being racist, but I can’t help but admit I didn’t get the reference.
– The Eagles of course said good bye to Kevin Kolb, the guy who pushed Donovan McNabb out of his job. Way to stay consistent, Philly!
-Tiger Woods will be participating in a golf tournament this weekend. I’m assuming it’s a big one.
-Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavellari broke up, and WithLeather.com has the recap.
-Since I’ve been watchin SNL for the past hour and half, one of my all time favorite skits. Have a good weekend guys!
