Friday Rock Out : The Pogues - Fiesta
While Bastian and Blair regale one another with tales of how awesome the Dropkick Murphys are, we'll kick off our weekend tearing it up to Shane MacGowan and the boys. The Dropkicks couldn't carry Shane's toothbrush.
(And the whole Dropkicks association with the worst elements of the Masshole Nation and Papelbon's spastic self-aggrandizing jigs just makes them that much less palatable. Especially this weekend.)
Drink up, sailors...the weekend is here! The Ack is back, if he hasn't lost himself in the pity drinks already.
What happens in Vegas gets reported in Vegas
The Las Vegas Sun's Ryan Greene had an excellent piece in yesterday's edition on Brett Cecil and his impressions of his first shot at the big leagues. Of course, no interview with a young Jays pitcher would be complete without the requisite tale of how Roy Halladay showed them the way and the light.
Specifically, Halladay told Cecil how to deal with Boston Red Sox pompous runt Dustin Pedroia. (It's just a shame that Halladay hasn't had the opportunity to put that knowledge to better use himself yet this year.)
