Notre Dame Steals A Recruit From Ohio State, Gets TE Mike Heuerman

Urban Meyer is going to be pissed about this.

Mike Heuerman, the Buckeyes #1 target at tight end and younger brother of current Buckeye Jeff, has decided to go play for Tight End U and picked Notre Dame today.

Heuerman had a final list of LSU, Miami, Ohio State and Notre Dame before the Naples, FL product decided to put in his verbal commitment to Brian Kelly and the Fighting Irish. Of course with all verbal commitments it is non binding so Meyer could get the young tight end to switch before signing day which isn't till February. Heuerman is the 12th man in the 2013 Notre Dame class who've already landed 5 offensive linemen, a quarterback, a wideout(The Admiral's son) and now a tight end.

Orioles Are In 1st Place

Since I've started SportsCrack I can probably count on my two hands the exact amount of days the Baltimore Orioles have been in first place in the AL East. I started the website in 2005 and the Orioles haven't had a winning season since I was a freshman in college back in 1997. But now on this fateful 26th day in April of the year 2012 the Orioles are in fact tied for 1st with the Tampa Bay Rays at 11-7.

Ahhh! I love the smell of victory in the air.

I'm just going to savor the flavor because I know it won't last. Right now their pitching staff has given up the fewest runs in the AL East and we all know that trend won't stick around come September. It's just fun to know that the team is actually capable of winning. It's been 15 years since they even had a winning season and it's why they can only get a little over 10,000 people for a weekday game in the beautiful Camden Yards.

So I tip this beer to my Orioles and toast with the simple saying "a win a day keeps the boo birds away!"

Go O's!

I Don't Feel Bad For This Kid And Michael Kay Is An Idiot

Yankees blowhard Michael Kay needs to shut his yapper. Getting a foul ball is not a right. Look do I feel bad for the kid because he cried uncontrollably like some little pansy? Hell no. Man up kid. Life isn't an endless amount of breast milk, chicken nuggets and free foul balls ok. If it were we would still be sipping on a tit instead of paying some Thailand hooker to "play mommy." You gotta earn your keep kid and next time a foul ball comes your way you better start throwing punches instead of hissy fits. Video via TheBigLead
