Tampa Bay Rays apologize for mascot holding offensive sign

I am sorry for holding up the funny, offensive sign.

As a 15 year old, Tom Green's appearance on Mike Bullard's talk show made a lasting impression on me.


I can't watch that clip here at work, but I remember it well. That was when Tom Green was actually funny, something that can't be said about Mike Bullard - that guy had no talent whatsoever as a host, unless you consider irritating people a talent.

Tom Green's best stunt was when he had two lesbians and "Slutmobile" airbrushed on the hood of his Dad's car. Someone can probably find the clip, its priceless.

Unlike Slutmobiles, this is actually germane to the topic: PETA to launch drones to track hunters

Go to my link in post 180. Are you trying to tell me that isn't antagonizing the animal?


Nah. Looks to me like he was just trying to provide medical care and relocation services to the crocodile.

And some in PETA seemed genuinely outraged that hunters fired on those drones as though they were skeet. I say, Kill the Drones!

No. Seriously.

That Yankee Stadium diagram on Clem's makes me wonder if Mantle's 1963 shot off the facade might have made it out of the stadium it it'd been pulled just a bit less, and headed over the Yankees' bullpen instead. Gibson's alleged out-of-the-park shot was supposed to have exited over the visitors' bullpen in left, and Foxx's legendary home run in 1938 (?) hit well up in the upper deck just to the left of that point. Given that the RF power alley was considerably closer than the one that Foxx and Gibson were aiming at, I'd have to think that Mantle's blast off Fischer just might have made it onto a subway.
