Does anyone want a job teaching Robbie Cano or Melky Cabrera how to bunt? I mean, good fucking christ, mang.
Yankee Stadium was electric last night, first and second with no out in the 8th, and Torre doesn't signal for Cano to put down the bunt because he flat-out doesn't know how...or at least that's my guess as to why they didn't. Sure, Robinson's swingin' a good stick right now, but you gotta lay one down there. The whole thing's just incredibly frustrating -- these are seriously basic skills.
Do they not teach you how to bunt in Lower Mexico?! That's like my wanting to be called a professional journalist and not knowing how to drop down a possessive noun or pronoun before a gerund.
Slack Link of the Day: Interestingly enough, the not-so-old Jimmy Connors has a new hip. And he's endorsing the company's product on a website called...you guessed it, JimmysNEWHip.com. I remember that 1991 match against Krickstein like it was yesterday, now the guy's got an artificial hip. Craisins.
Slack Video of the Day: Going back to old-school Daily Show, check out some of these Even Stevphen clips with Colbert and Carell: Medical Marijuana, Islam versus Christianity, The War in Iraq, and the Responsible Drinking. Man, it's amazing to me that Colbert and Carell were on the same show and worked together for so long -- The Daily Show in the new SNL.
Slack Song of the Day: How about a ridiculous Two for Thursday hodgepodge? Two for Thursday? Yeah, makes sense to me. Here's Billy Ocean's Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car and Loverboy; Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up and Together Forever; Erasure's Chains of Love and Take a Chance on Me; and Annie Lennox's Walkin' on Broken Glass and Take Me to the River. Holy shit, did I just lose all credibility as a serious music fan or what?!
