Jessica Alba

Usually I prefer blonds but in the case of Jessica Alba I think she looks much better with the dark hair. Blond she becomes a cross between Brittany Murphy and Brittany Spears. Which of course is still pretty hot.

The InsideHer

This is from PageSix in the Post. i don't know why the thought of Pat O'Brien acting like this is so funny to me, but it is so i'm sharing it

....

March 23, 2005 -- PAT O'Brien, the host of "The Insider" who entered rehab on Sunday, has more to worry about than sexually explicit voice-mail messages. There's a photograph, too.
An impeccable Left Coast source says that O'Brien's girlfriend, "Betsy," has an ex-husband who is in possession of a "compromising photograph" of the mustachioed broadcaster pleasuring himself.
"There's also an e-mail Pat O'Brien sent to Betsy laying out the framework for [having] an affair," said our source.
"It's like a blueprint, something in his file that he has sent out before."
Betsy is described as an attractive blond mother of two daughters. "She left her Pasadena husband when Pat seduced her," said the family friend.
The ex-husband is said to be well-off financially, but he might let the photo be sold to one of the supermarket weeklies — because he doesn't like O'Brien. "He's finished with the divorce and he's moved on," said our source.
Betsy figures prominently in voice mails that were posted Monday on the Internet, in which a man who sounds like O'Brien is heard trying to coax an unidentified woman into a threesome.


"Let's have [bleep]ing sex and drugs and just go crazy," the voice says in one of three messages, most of which is repetitive and unprintably graphic. "You're [bleep]ing sexy, I want to go crazy with you."
"You are so [bleep]ing hot . . . my girlfriend is so hot, you are so [bleep]ing hot. Please leave me a voice mail, leave me a voice mail. Bye."
In the third message, the voice says: "I am so [bleep]ing into you, but Betsy's so [bleep]ing jealous . . . I told Betsy you're into her and if you get this message just look at me and say yes. I want to [bleep] your [bleep] and get crazy. I don't know why I'm like this, but you have to be with Betsy, too."
O'Brien, who has one child with his wife, Linda, has taken Betsy out with him in public to many events over the past few months.
A spokesman for "The Insider" said O'Brien won't be coming back to the show "until he is better."

The Case for Alomar

Here's a nice rundown of Roberto Alomar's case for the HoF. He's probably in a similar situation to Larkin, though I think Alomar was the superior player. A far better comp is Craig Biggio, who perhaps has the most underrated career of this era and will be greatly impacted by the verdict on Alomar.

Reading List

For those of you who read, let me recommend The Ticket Out: Darryl Strawberry and the Boys of Crenshaw by Michael Sokolove. It's about the 1979 Crenshaw High School baseball team, regarded by many as the best HS team of all time...and what happened to the players, including our boy Straw.

Fun fact: the opposing pitcher in the 1979 championship game? John Elway.

 

Cheating? What's Cheating?

Is laser eye surgery an unfair advantage in sports? Here's an interesting article about the ethical fine line that comes with medical enhancements.

Wanna Buy A Monkey?

I think I have to re-think my stance on monkeys after this. In summation, "...had severe facial injuries and would require extensive surgery in an attempt to reattach his nose...His testicles and a foot also were severed"
