|Eyes Like a Hawk|
So I'm walking through the Virgin Megastore and what CD, out of the millions, do I spot out of the corner of my eye? Wilson Phillips Greatest Hits. And I almost bought it.
|Dare I Say, "Enamored?"|
For some bizarre reason, I've become, dare I say, enamored with the new 3rd jersey of the Columbus Blue Jackets. Don't ask me why. I just love it. And not that I'm a big fan of the Jackets, I just love the jersey. Possibly even more than the new 3rd jersey for the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim that I've had my eye on. I need to find a job where I can where a hockey jersey every day.
TORONTO (Reuters) - The competitors, in glitzy, off-the-wall costumes, call themselves professional athletes. Some even bring along team doctors to supervise their nutrition and take them through intense warmups. |
This, it seems, is serious stuff to the 320 competitors who shook their fists early into Sunday morning at the World Rock, Paper, Scissors Championships at a nightclub in downtown Toronto.
The man who did win -- and netted himself a purse of $5,000 Canadian ($3,825 US) -- was Toronto's Rob Krueger, a member of the team "Legion of the Red Fist."
To achieve the lofty title of World RPS Champion, he threw a combination of rock-paper-paper, defeating his opponent's offering of three rocks.
Treading a thin line between silly spectacle and serious sport, the event drew a crowd of about 900, including many bemused spectators who wandered, with drinks in hand, among a slew of local and international media.
This guy is the 2002 Champ.

|New York during the outage|
I can't remember whether Ryan actually hit him with a pitch of not, but Robin Ventura felt the need to storm the mound. As Ventura rushed headlong into Nolan Ryan, Ryan effortlessly got Ventura in a headlock and punched him repeatedly in the head. Absolutely fabulous.
Honestly, does Robin Ventura looked like he started this scuffle? But man, Ryan looks the guy that's going to finish it! I stumbled across a picture of the incident (which occured like 10 years ago) and thought I would share with you.
