come on straw, get it together

Ryan Howard's eyes widened when someone asked him about Boston closer Jonathan Papelbon.

"Nasty. Nasty, filthy stuff," the Philadelphia slugger said Monday. "His split-finger is ridiculous."

Howard also wanted to pass along a message to the Red Sox rookie: "Keep what you're doing man. Just don't do it to me anymore. I'm tired of it."


Awww... cute. Much like both Papelbon and Ryan Howard themselves. From the AP, as seen
here.

"I’ve always set my goals really high for myself and that was one of the goals I set for myself this season, to make the All-Star team and be a part of this," Papelbon said. "If you set your goals high enough, if you don't reach them or fall just short of them, you've still accomplished a lot."

This nugget of soulful wisdom makes me realize that Pap's true talent is wasted-- he should CLEARLY be writing self help books.

And I say this as someone who has read many many parts of Derek Jeter's Living the Life You Imagine, so I feel qualified to judge who would make a good athelte-turned-self-help-book-writer. Which, by the way, the answer is "not Jeter," something we learned after he went on and on about being 26 and having all his own teeth and his own hair like that was an ACCOMPLISHMENT and thus caused kelly to nearly drive off the road she was laughing so hard. Getting in a car accident =/= self-help.

Anyway, the quote above is from the Boston Herald
here.

every time they showed jeter last night, i exclaimed "all his own teeth! all his own hair!" i don't think that was self-help or people-who-have-to-watch-tv-with-self help.

also, an overlooked gem of a moment from last night's game: cornroyo and thanks, beautiful were standing together in the NL dugout. comedy gold.

I saw a little girl wearing a thanks, beautiful t-shirt today in the rain and I so wished I had my camera because I still owe min a photographic representation of t,b and it would have been perfect.

Also, "all his own teeth! all his own hair!" may not help anyone, but it sho' is funny.
