Rafael Palmeiro’s retirement testimonial just got smaller. A report in the Baltimore Sun says that Palmeiro fingered a teammate as his ‘roids supplier during closed-door testimony in his defence. Palmeiro was planning to return to the Orioles for the final weekend of games, but somehow I think that’s off now.
Oh, and this is breaking news. Or maybe just news. Oh, let's just tell you: The Onion has added a sports page. Yeah, the site with headlined stories like "Pro Athlete Lauded for being Decent Human Being, "Wrestling Announcer Can't Believe What He's Seeing" and numerous other scoops has decided it's time for a sports divison. And about time, I say!
As for tonight:
We’re watching: Leafs vs. Habs (Leafs TV, 7:30 p.m.). What else? Forget that rivalry stuff. This is the preseason. I just want to see if Jason Allison actually exists (and if you’ve been keeping up with the Hockey Page, you already know the answer to that).
We’re not watching: Palmer Cup highlights (Golf Channel, 8 p.m.).
Jesse is cut by the Giants and this is the best he can do? He was The Bachelor, for pete’s sake. Oh, it says the Palmer Cup. Never mind.
