Orioles draft Ryan Ripken

He’ll probably go to college, though.

Your mom goes to college.

I take it this is Kevin Costner's kid?

I think #2 has won this one already.

Anyway, in either case the kid's chances for a full head of hair when he's 30 are pretty slim.

Mariners just took Carl Yaztremski's grandson.

Judging by the picture it looks like he's stocking up now so it takes longer to go.

Take your pick:

a) I bet he never skips a class.

b) Too bad he's going to college, otherwise he'd have a real shot at the minor-league consecutive games streak.

I'm old and naive; when/how did this supposed tryst between Kelly Ripken and Costner supposedly occcur.
And yes, I;m sure then "when" part is Ryan's current age plus 9 months, but what were the surrounding facts?

Wasn't that when Randy Johnson was in the middle of that consecutive wins streak too? I vaguely remember the chatter at the time being that there may have been some gamesmanship to rattle him a little bit.

If I remember right, he pitched the next day, and got knocked around a bit, ending the streak.

Of course, I go and look it up, and he wasn't. But he was coming off a 19-K game. Ho Hum.

For Love of the Dame!
