Dennis Sarfate has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season! He's making a great comeback from his clavicle surgery. Here's the full story.

Nastia...the name doesn't help

Did anyone watch the women's gymnastics last night? Could Nastia Liukin look any more unhappy? OMG. I guess her dad is her coach. Has he not noticed that his daughter seems to hate everything about gymnastics, especially her teammate? Seriously, if looks could kill, Shawn Johnson would have died a few times over last night.

I actually got uncomfortable every time Nastia was on the TV screen, as if I was watching someone suffer. I just feel bad for the kid. I'm glad she ended up with the gold. She deserved it, and I actually got to see what she looks like smiling.

I went to high school with a girl like that, and she scared the crap out of me. So much anger...heehee.

You Never Know...

How nice would it be if I got to buy World Series tickets this fall? At this point, anything can happen! I love springtime...

You've been PUNKED!

So there are some times that you don't want to be messed with, and then there are times you're just so relieved to have been messed with... this cracked me up. Phillies pitcher Kyle Kendrick didn't seem to mind being told that his trade to Japan was just a joke after all.

Really Cold Beer

It can't always be baseball season, I suppose, so I bought some Baltimore Ravens tickets today. Drinking a cold beer in a football stadium in November just doesn't seem the same, though.

A Look Back at the 2006 Baltimore Orioles

Okay, so I'm not usually a sucker for the musical montages, but this was an awesome watch.

Check out this not-so-sappy clip of the 2006 Baltimore Orioles season. (Why do I like it? Probably because it's one of the few musical montages that manages to NOT use Celine Dion. I like her and all, but adding Celine Dion to anything raises the sappiness quotient by a power of at least 10.)

Airing dirty laundry

Seems like the Baltimore Orioles are hitting the extremes as far as drama goes. Jay Gibbons starts complaining about lack of playing time, and manager Sam Perlozzo gives only this statement (from baltimoresun.com):

"Perlozzo said he's spoken with Gibbons and that his office door is open for players to come in and talk. 'I don't have anything negative to say other than, we're trying to do the absolute best to get him right and we've been working on that," Perlozzo said. "The newspaper's not the place to talk about it.'"

Wish the press could have that same attitude about the whole steroid investigation story...

National Nemesis

Okay tonight's the real deal. Think Washington fans will see a win over the Orioles tonight? Well, as much as the Nationals would like to win this one, they just don't have the lineup. Look on the Orioles bench ... Jay Gibbons. Brian Roberts. Miguel Tejada. Melvin Mora. Ramon Hernandez. Aubrey Huff. Corey Patterson. Nick Markakis, Jay Payton. Kevin Millar. I think we will see a repeat defeat.
