First round KO: Philly's first "Flyin Hawaiian" knocks out Jose Canseco in the first round of a celebrity-charity boxing match. He treated him like the Giants goal-post in 1992, making Canseco look even more ridiculous then he already has made himself. Sikahema was asked if there were any surprises. "That it didn't finish in the first 30 seconds," he said.
As the Apple turns...: Willie Randolph is out as manager of the New York Mets, fired in the middle of the night 2 1/2 months into a disappointing season that has followed the team's colossal collapse last September. In the middle of the night? Seems pretty cold.
How 'bout dem ball-girls?!: The bottom line is having the best seat at Citizens Bank Park. It was enticing to Laura Litzenberger, another of the new ballgirls. "I spoke to some of the girls who were ballgirls last year and my biggest fear is touching a fair ball; they told us to concentrate on the game," said Litzenberger, a Kutztown University graduate with a degree in elementary education.
$5 Dollar Fine: for looking at his hair too long. Some funny baseball humor. "They're very strict in Double-A," said Chris Coste, Kendrick's teammate on the R-Phillies. "The problem is that it was written up and put in the kangaroo court box, but he was called up before the case could be read." The charge? "Spending 22 minutes and 39 seconds in front of the mirror doing his hair," Coste said, without a hint of a smile. "And his hair didn't change from Minute 1 to Minute 22. He really likes his hair."
The Saints come home to a heart warming party: and hang out with grateful, while a little tipsy, fans of the city's historically maligned, now proud franchise. If this doesn't bring a tear to your eye, you dont like football. It brought a couple to mine, and I am a Philadelphia phan.
