Bizarre Baseball Injuries

Funny, Sports, Strange No Comments »

Y’know these types of injuries would never fly in hockey. Hockey players take pride in their toughness and durability. Baseball players? Well…

  • Roger Craig (Giants) - Cut his hand on a bra strap.
  • Ryan Klesko (Braves) - Once overexerted himself and pulled a muscle while picking up his lunch tray.
  • Wade Boggs (Red Sox) - Injured himself while pulling on his cowboy boots.
  • Kevin Mitchell (Mets/Giants) - The master of all bizarre injuries, he once injured himself while eating a cupcake. That, of course, was when he wasn’t missing games because of vomiting-induced muscle strains, or strained eyelids.
  • Ken Griffey, Jr. (Mariners) - Missed a game after suffering a pinched testicle from his protective cup.
  • Jose Cardenal (Cubs) - Missed a game in 1974 because he couldn’t blink.
  • Vince Coleman (Cardinals) - Missed the 1985 World Series after getting rolled up in the tarp machine.
  • John Smoltz (Braves) - Once burned his chest while ironing a shirt, which he was still wearing.
  • Carlos Perez (Expos) - Broke his nose in a car accident while trying to pass the team bus.
  • Doc Gooden (Mets) - Missed a start when Vince Coleman accidentally struck him with a golf club in the clubhouse.
  • Ricky Bones (Marlins) - Went on the disabled list in 2000 after injuring himself while changing channels on the clubhouse TV.
  • Greg Harris (Rangers) - Injured his wrist while flicking sunflower seeds in the dugout

My mom left a voicemail for me last Sunday, and I didn’t return the call right away, so on Friday, I received a second voicemail¬†from my mom wondering why I hadn’t called her:

Mom’s voicemail

I called her in the afternoon, and we had a long chat. I’ve broken it down into two parts, and keep in mind that Bonnie and Clyde are a pair of Shi Zhu dogs.

Cornell in Banff just for X92.9 Listeners

Audio, Cool, Interview, Rock Report 1 Comment »

We just announced today that¬†Chris Cornell would be joining us (and Matt Good) for our One Weekend Only adventure in Banff this November. Friday night it’s Matt Good, then Saturday night at Wild Bill’s, Chris Cornell and his band will take the stage. Small venue, legend of new rock. Pretty amazing. If you were at Cornell’s sold out show at Mac Hall when he was here last, you’d know he plays his solo stuff, Soundgarden, Audioslave, and even some Temple of the Dog.¬† When he was through town recently, I went by his hotel for a chat. He’s a down-to-earth, thoughtful, well-spoken guy, which made the interview pretty smooth-sailing. Here’s the audio:

Kiwi is a sweetheart who likes her cuddles. She’s a 9-year old German Shepard mix looking for a fairly settled home - no crazy kids running around or pulling her tail! She knows the basic commands, and is pretty much ready to go to a loving home. You can see her and all sorts of other great pets at The Calgary Humane Society
