A play so good I dedicated a whole flash to it! …
Wednesday night in the City of Angels, Angels’ Ace Jered Weaver pitched his first career no-hitter for a 9-0 victory over Minnesota.
Weaver struck out nine and walked one, not even giving the Twins a chance to hit. The Twins were held hitless for the first time since 1998 when Yankee David Wells pitched a perfect game against them. Transation: Weaver is kind of a big deal. Like Celania.
So high five Weaver … on the butt!
I also have to give props to Bryce Harper of the Nationals who caught a fly ball to center field with 3 fingers of his bare hand. I respect this because while playing in my co-ed softball league I once caught a grounder to second with my thighs upon squeezing them together when I clinched up in fear of the ball bouncing and hitting me in the face (I’m such a girl sometimes). Whatever works, right? Granted, I was so baffled by it I missed the throw to first, but it was still an (unintentional) impressive play, for comedic purposes at least.
I’d also like to give a slap on the butt to all the no name golfers leading the Wells Fargo Championship right now. For starters, they’re in Charlotte and I could technically slap them on the butt if I hunted them down on the course. But mainly because I root for the underdogs.
And with Tiger woods in town it puts the city at risk … hide your kids, hide your wives, hide the strippers!
