Hump day in a slow week

Well, yesterday we debuted our new Twitter widget with the Rangers’ players who tweet. It was pretty popular immediately, and I think it will be wildly so once they start playing hockey again.

And I’m sure they will recognize that y’all are on to their tweets because of this site eventually.

Like when Brad Richards starts getting hits on his web site [1] (bradrichardshockey.com) from you guys. Richards tweeted last night for people to get involved in his charitable endeavors in PEI … and those endeavors are pretty cool. He’ll fit right in with the Rangers in terms of his work with kids and children’s hospitals. Good for him.

If you come across any other Rangers who tweet, please let me know and we’ll add them to the widget.

Watched some of the baseball all-star game last night (after spending part of the day discussing Horace Clarke, for God’s sake). Quick thoughts:

A) Baseball is still the best all-star game because they play both sides of the ball as if it’s a real game, whereas hockey, football and basketball’s all-star events are complete jackwagon, no-defense, no-intensity affairs. Baseball’s game ain’t perfect, but it is baseball.

B) The two rosters, made up of like 73 players or something, were pretty motley compared to all-star games of the past. Lot of middling stars, in my opinion.

C) Fox botched the telecast, as usual. What’s up with this clown Eric Karros? And why bother miking up the bases and players if the announcers are going to talk while we’re trying to eavesdrop? And it remains idiotic that home-field advantage in the World Series is decided by this exhibition, the biggest example of a TV network wagging a major sports league.

D) A lot of baseball players are in worse shape than me.
