Funny t-shirts

This makes me laugh.

But it's not quite as funny as the one I took a picture of last Sunday at the final game at RFK:

That's Just Cruel

From a Cardinals blog I read...

During last night's game, the ladyfriend suggested that, in addition to the standard bobblehead nights, that the Cardinals should open next season with a commemorative Kip Wells punching bag handed out to the first 20,000 fans entering Busch opening day next year.

Kip Wells has gone 6-17 with a 5.81 ERA this year.

I'm a Loser!

I've broken into the ranks of Washington Post Style Invitational Losers! Look for the report from Week 728, then under letter "D" (on page 2).

DCist's Meaningless Nationals Statistic of the Week

Under the heading of "meaningless statistic of the week," DCist revealed that Washington left fielders are second in the National League in being hit by pitches with 13 -- which does tend to support their observation that, "There really isn't a lot to find about a team that is 70-87 and has 5 games left to play."

Farewell to RFK

Today, a bunch of us went to the last baseball game at RFK Stadium, which was great. But it won't be my favorite memory of the place.

And, although they were all fantastic, my favorite memory has nothing to do with Opening Day 2005, the 10 game winning streak in June, 2005, Ramon Ortiz's near-no hitter (and home run) on Labor Day, 2006, or even Zimm's walk off 3-run home run against the Yankees earlier that season.

No, my favorite RFK memory is this, as retold by Dan:

Yankee Insults 10-Year Old Kid

Another example of why the Yankees are baseball's "Evil Empire"... Yankee OF Shelley Duncan wrote "Red Sox Suck" when signing his autograph for a 10-year old Red Sox fan. What's next- beating up old ladies?

Third Annual Post-Rosh Hashana Services Karaoke Extravaganza

Nothing says "Rosh Hashanah" like sushi and karaoke. For those who missed it, you missed . . . well, you missed a three-quarters-empty Karaoke Idol. Which meant that those of us who wanted to sing got to sing a lot of songs, including a duet by Justin and yours truly.

Too bad I forgot the camera this time. But it was something like this, only with different songs and fewer people.

Race for the Bottom!

September means baseball pennant fever, so I think it's time to draw everyone's attention to a truly PH4h-worthy race- the race for the #1 draft pick. Baseball America is tracking this "race" as teams jockey to see who will have the chance to draft first in next year's amateur draft. The prize? Vanderbilt's 3B Pedro Alvarez is considered to be a super-prospect. As of yesterday morning, the Devil Rays were just ahead of the Marlins and White Sox for the lead, with the Orioles, Astros, Royals, and Pirates closing in fast. Who will have the most losses? Stay tuned!

"Empanadas are the new cupcakes."

If you haven't done so already, watch the Hipster Olympics video. Then you'll understand.
