DAILY RAYS OF SUNSHINE

ARIZONA STATE IS NO. 1 IN SOMETHING

Beautiful job by popcrunch.com rating the top 50 hottest student bodies complete with photos.

I’m old as hell but college girls make me feel spry. 

No. 41-50, 31-40, 21-30, 11-20 & Top Ten.

IS GARY THORNE SENILE OR SIMPLY NOT LISTENING?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This convo during the Red Sox-A’s Japan series is mind boggling. Thorne is confused on who alleged that he introduced ARod to steroids and that ARod hit on his wife…was it Jason Giambi or Jose Canseco? Okay, we give him a pass once Steve Phillips steps in to correct him and says it was Canseco not Giambi.

Amazingly, Thorne stays on the same path saying there will be friction in the Bronx. Huh? 

I believed Thorne on his bloody sock theory regarding Curt Schilling…now I’m not so sure. Maybe he did misconstrue Doug Mirabelli. What a crackpot!  

magic.jpgMISSING THE REAL STORY ON THE MAGIC JOHNSON PICTURE

I was confused when viewing this photo of a tubby Magic. “Ha-ha, he needs a salad”…most blogs wrote. Anyone think about the fact that this guy is HIV positive? An HIV victim gaining weight is a bad thing? The sad part to me is that it’s clear if you have money, you can get proper medical care in this country. Without millions, saving your life is a financial decision you must wrestle with. A decision about cancer treatment shouldn’t be on the same level as a stock investment. This story points out that more and more people are passing on cancer treatment. It’s simply too expensive to save my life. I’m better off dead than living miserably with massive debt. Pretty sick.

THE RED SOX HAVE BECOME THE YANKEES

Ian O’Connor lays out the argument that New York is the hard luck, confused team while Boston is now the hated “buys championships” team.

The Red Sox have become the Yankees, and the Yankees have become the Red Sox, and Hank and Girardi will have a hell of a time reversing the damage. They didn’t land the big pitcher, Johan Santana, who could’ve flipped the division on its ear, leaving him for a team (the Mets) that hadn’t already shelled out $275 million-plus for A-Rod.

SHOULD 89-YEAR OLDS BE WRITING FOR MAJOR NEWSPAPERS?

Furman Bisher from the Atlanta Journal Constitution is 89 and still penning stories for the Georgia paper. He may want to brush up on what’s politically incorrect in 2008. He says this writing about MLB’s jaunt to Tokyo…..

Why not? A Japanese newspaper chain, Yomiuri, foots the bill for this Oriental excursion.

Oops. Now this came after Bisher’s take that the U.S. should not be so Japan friendly after what happened in World War II.

<!– –>Money can change any habit. Eight springs ago the Mets and Cubs opened the season, not in Cincinnati. Guess where? Tokyo. Tokyo. That Tokyo, the guys who gave us Pearl Harbor. Some people don’t like you to bring that up, trade with Japan is so hot. But I’ve got a long memory. I saw what a few bombs can do to our property.

Do we kill Bisher for his Japan take and use of the word “oriental?”

ESPN1100’S POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK

Afternoon Gridlock’s Paul Howard may be the oddest person I’ve ever met, period! Yet he constantly goes on his show and calls out my buddy Dave Cokin and calls him strange.  

Paulie writes in his daily blog

That Cokin is a weird dude. He stays up til 6 am to watch his Red Sox this morning and is crowing to everybody “Hey guys 1-0 how bout that”. Mitch is right. He is consumed with Red Sox baseball. When it’s December he is thinking about the team and the free agent moves.

Wow! Take a look at Paulie during a recent remote. What the hell is with his hair? He is turning into the Heat Miser. Remember the character from A Year Without a Santa Claus? He’s now the White Don King.
