- Cameron Diaz was "caught" by paparazzi leaving Alex Rodriquez' apartment with some trendy luggage. It was assumed that she stayed the night. Rumour has it that she is Alex Rodriguez's latest slumpbuster following the standard set by Madonna and Kate Hudson. Perhaps he needs to reread the definition of slumpbuster but then again he is batting .253 with only 2 home runs.
- The Phoenix Suns decided to wear jerseys in their playoff game with "Los Suns" on them. I wonder if someone will be asked to prove citizenship. Politics and sports together, wow.
- At a Phillies game the other day a "fan" ran onto the field. To apprehend him quickly, the police tasered him. Some people immediately said the police acted inappropriately. The fan in question, a 17 year old, supposedly called his father to tell him what he was going to do beforehand and the parent recommended against it. The kid did it anyway since he felt this would be a once in a lifetime experience. Little did he know that being tasered would be that experience. His mother, rather than bashing the police, issued an apology on her son's behalf to the Phillies saying that he was a "wonderful" kid and was accepted to go to college at Penn State. The question is will Penn State rescind their acceptance of him on the basis of stupidity?
- The Mets are no longer 0 for May.
