Chipper Jones is back from the World Baseball Classic, you know, the series that nobody is attending or watching for that matter. He is suffering from a strained oblique muscle which cut short his 2nd experience in the WBC after going 0-for-10 with 6 strikeouts. Here is what he had to say to Braves beat writer Dave O'brien about the wonderful series up in Toronto...
“Just way too many days off,” he said. “We stayed in Toronto for a week and played three games. I don’t know if you ever stayed in Toronto, but it’s not exactly Las Vegas. To say that we were plucking our eyebrows out one at a time would be an understatement.
I guess the hookers and cocaine in Toronto just can't compare to what we have in Vegas. I hear what Chipper is saying. Canada is boring and the WBC doesn't mean shit. I tried watching the game last night between Venezuela and Puerto Rico in Miami and was pretty shocked to see how many empty seats there were. Granted the Cubans or Americans weren't playing in the game but still you would expect more people.
And on a related commercial note you can purchase an authentic Chipper Jones autograph baseball with James Spence Authentication at this link.
Something has to sell here to pay the bills. It most certainly isn't my writing.

And I thought my reading and grammar was bad. Holy shit! Florida Representative Corrine Brown personally butchered the English language in "gradulating" the Florida Gators on their "BS" Championship. How did this woman get elected? Her robe looks like something ThunderLips would wear.

This news segment is over 3 years old now but it still makes my sides hurt. It would have been a disservice not to include it on Sportscrack today. So enjoy it and make sure you spread the good laughs to friends and family.
