Bob Sanders Messed With NM Women’s Soccer, Now Needs Tim Lincecum’s Weed

Hey, look at that. I just combined the three top stories of Friday into one blog title.  ZOMG. It’s a busy sports weekend, with a full plate of basketball and football to satiate even the most hardened baseball fan.  By the way, let me repeat what I’ve told several people this week. 

Alex Rodriguez: World Series Champion.

Yowza.

Bobby Sanders once again finds himself out for the year as he tore something off something else and they couldn’t tape it back together quickly enough to get him back on the field. The more time that Sanders loses due to injury, the less tolerant I am of the revered status he has amongst the football media. We get it, he’s death incarnate. But he’s ALWAYS hurt.

If you watched Sportscenter for more than 30 seconds yesterday, you probably saw my girl Elizabeth Lambert of the New Mexico women’s soccer team. Turns out, a forearm to the chest is all she needed to reveal her inner Chyna. Lambert was quickly suspended indefinitely by UNM officials, who no doubt wanted to see their athletes off the media cycle as soon as possible. Elizabeth, you didn’t let us down. The public school system did.

The Yankees celebrated their purchase of their 27th world championship on Friday, in front of thousands of screaming fans who probably never saw a game in person this season. Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and Alex Rodriguez delighted the crowd, while all paying homage to their Lords, the Steinbrenner family. Elsewhere, the nation celebrated the victory of the gutsy underdog who gave it all they got, clawing for each… whatever. I hate the Yankees.

Finally, pitcher Tim Lincecum is already working on a way to get out of trouble for his arrest over the weekend for marijuana possession. Lincecum, the current Cy Young award winner and current holder of the “Most Likely to Look Like a Pot Smoker” award, has a deal in place to only pay a $250 fine with the other charges dismissed. Law enforcement officials want to assure you, the tax paying public, that this would be the case for anyone in his situation, not just because he’s a celebrity. But for you gluttons of justice, Lincecum still has to pay the $122 speeding ticket.

    Until marijuana is proven by the US Senate to be a performance enhancing substance for Lincecum, this should not be discussed on sports blogs or sports news pages in my opinion.

    Considering that a pitcher struggles with stress and pressure all the time, I think pot just might be a performance enhancer. However, the fact that he had pot with him while driving (in fact speeding) is an issue, at least as much as a DUI. I know that Lincecum did not appear to be under the influence at the time, but it would concern me if I was a coach because of the potental for personal harm to himself or others.

    Dibs on using “Tim Lincecum’s Weed” as my fantasy baseball team name in 2010

    Doug,
    I think that would exceed Yahoo’s character limit.

    This year has qualified as one of the worst years of my sporting life.

    1st: Lakers win a championship. I hate LA sports.

    2nd: Yankees win a championship. Ugh here we go again.

    3rd: USC beats Ohio State. Thank you Joe McKnight. Can’t I get bragging rights for one damned year?

    4th: Dodgers make the Playoffs. I would have rooted for the Yankees in a Dodgers vs. Yankees series.

    5th: Watch the Padres trade Adrian Gonzales and Heath Bell to the Dodgers for a package that did not include Matt Kemp. Thankfully this didn’t happen. The Padres wanted Russell Martin (ugh).

    6th: Watch USC trounce through a pathetic Pac 10 to another shot at a title. Ohh, wait, the Pac 10 is decent this year. Even Washington won a game.

    7th: Oregon decides since they’re good this year they can reinstate Blount. When nobody expected anything from them they do the right thing, but now that they have a chance for big things….

    8th: Being nominated for the King of Commenting competition. Need I say more?

    By the way, has anyone else noticed that Petite looks like Caesar riding into Rome? Either that or Ben’s favorite Drag Queen.

    I seriously try not to look at Andy Petite. The only thing worse then seeing his face is living in Ohio.
