I don't know how this one slipped by me, but thanks to the reader who brought this story to my attention.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I get pretty rattled when the flight attendant is late with my bag of peanuts. A door flying open would definitely take me out of my game.
Meanwhile, authorities in Atlanta have shut down Michael Vick's new daycare center after parents complained that it was part of an infant-fighting ring. Among the evidence found on his property was a pry bar used to remove the pacifier out of a baby's mouth.
It also looks bad when you hire a cut man.
The Falcons issued a statement saying they don't condone baby fighting and would look into the matter. But they're also very pleased with how Vick has looked in voluntary workouts, so that's good.
Seriously, though, I loved the tape on ESPN of the television reporter interviewing Vick about the dog-fighting scandal.
Asked if he was confident that he'd be exonerated, Vick paused a few seconds and said, "No comment."
Any chance that's because he has no idea what "exonerated" means?
Rushing to Vick's defense, Redskins running back Clinton Portis told an Atlanta television station that dog fighting is a "prevalent" part of life, that there are plenty of back roads where you can watch it.
As if Portis is telling me something I don't already know. I could have made millions off my weiner dog if he hadn't blown out a hamstring.
This just in: Sam Perlozzo is still the Orioles' manager. Updates to follow.
Considering that half of Toronto's roster is on the disabled list, this would be an opportune time for the Orioles to release all their frustration in this series. And I don't mean at each other.
Just get past A.J. Burnett tonight and start thinking sweep.
A stat that probably surprises no one: The Orioles are 16-10 when scoring four runs or more, and 4-14 when scoring three runs or fewer.
They're also 3-16 when trailing after the sixth inning, 2-20 after the seventh and 0-21 after the eighth.
