There's No Crying in Baseball (or MMA or Basketball)!

God fails yet again to take Teddy Kennedy. Seriously, Teddy has the luck of the devil. I like to think God is up there, trying to pin down both Kennedy and Dick Cheney, but failing constantly (and screaming "Dammit! Missed again!").

A quick update on some female athletes that I follow:

Candice Parker had an amazing rookie debut this week with the L.A. Sparks. For those of you who don't follow women's college hoops, Parker was one of the best players in the nation, and was the first player taken in the draft. She's very reminiscent of Lisa Leslie - a really tall girl who can handle the ball. She was the first female to dunk in an NCAA tournament game and the first to dunk twice in one game. She's one of those athletes that can take the WNBA to the next level physically. I'm excited to see what she does this year. In fact, I'll probably go to the Mystics/Sparks game this year just to see her play.

Gina Carano will be fighting on the new CBS MMA show. You may know Carano from American Gladiators (she plays Crush), or perhaps from the pages of Maxim. She's super hot, that's true, but she's actually not a bad mixed martial arts fighter. Steve usually resists my attempts to watch MMA fights (he thinks it's barbaric), but I may actually be able to get him to watch, since he does like Gina Carano.

My favorite Candice Parker moment was watching her win the McDonalds' High School All-American slam dunk contest... against the boys. She was awesome.

Fortunately Carrie enjoys watching MMA fights with me, I think her favorite figher is Roger Huerta (probably just because he is a fine looking man). We found replays of UFC fights showing at midnight on Saturday and we usually try to stay up to watch them.

Brownie, we should go to the Sparks/Mystics game this season. Tickets are cheap so you can bring your whole family.

That's a good idea! I'll check with Mandi.
