Today The Fightins featured a blog I happened to stumble upon the other day on my own, and it has some fantastic stuff, namely the drawing of Cliff Lee riding a unicorn that I saw on The Fightins. It also has a great drawing called “Summer of Love,” which seemed to have been a big project for the author in the off-season, as well as even a drawing of Kanye West, of whom I may have mentioned before that I am a fan. Here are some pictures of the aforementioned below; click to enlarge and then definitely check out AlrightMike to see the rest of this talented “drawer’s” collection of work:

“Cliff Mounts Unicorn with Rainbows…”

“Summer of Love”


(Here is a link to a dope full-resolution version of the “Summer of Aces” drawing he made that is displayed above in the middle…big enough to posterize it, if you will…)

If you follow the Phillies or even baseball at all, you might be a little perplexed after reading the title of this post; you might also just be reading this because I told you to.  Either way, your confusion is warranted.  Jimmy has been having, it has seemed, a pedestrian season, at best, even by his own lofty standards, and I thought such a statement was accurate until a couple of days ago.  Now, I haven’t been following his season at-bat to at-bat, but I guess I must have missed a recent hot-streak by the shortstop because I was somewhat surprised to see Jimmy’s stats as of a few days ago, as calculated by Comcast SportsNet and reported during his at-bat against the Nationals on Tuesday:

Now I’m no Woody Paige, but I believe those 737 homers would be some sort of record for a season…yet LeDouche still seems to steal the headlines from more deserving (and even record-shattering) athletes.  So the moral of this post is: fuck LeDouche James.  And don’t worry, Jimmy, Blogbdon’s got you.


LeBron James should blame himself, not race, for the heat he has received

Point the finger at yourself, LeBron

LeBron James, race and the NBA (see? unbiased)

Here’s yet another brilliant infographic from Flip Flop Fly Ball, this one documenting the last player from each baseball team to wear Jackie Robinson’s uniform number, #42, which was retired league-wide in 1997. Twelve players were allowed to continue to wear the number “per a grandfather clause,” and, as indicated by the final name on the graph, only one of the twelve remain in the league thirteen years later.  However, it is fitting that the one player who still wears #42 to this day (and who will be the last player to ever wear #42) is Mariano Rivera, the Yankees legendary relief pitcher, who will almost undoubtedly go down as the greatest closer of all time.
