“Oh bugger, I’ve been codswalopped by this orb goblin! I do believe it has me all arse about face. Montague! Where is my valet, Montague?! Help me capture the golden snitch lest I look a right prat. Oh, if that doesn’t take the biscuit. Montague! Bring my sporting mittens!”
Pat Mayo (@ThePME) and Mike Cardano (@MikeCardano) discuss Mark Teixeira’s wrist injury and how it affects the Yankees and the American squad at the World Baseball Classic. Plus, how many members of the WBC Canadian team can Pat name?
The latest significant injury in Yankees camp – that Mark Teixeira will miss 8-10 weeks with a strained wrist – is sure to set off alarms in the Bronx and on New York sports radio. With A-Rod, Curtis Granderson, and Tex sidelined and Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and Brett Gardner returning from injury, the Yankee lineup is, for the first time in a while, suspect. But there is no reason to worry just yet, Yankee fans. As long the Yankees don’t act like, well, the Yankees, and don’t hit the panic button – they just might be okay.
Most athletes spend their offseasons doing cliched things like golfing, fishing, hunting and mostly every other gerund you can think of. Thanks to Mark Teixiera’s recent turn in “Rock of Ages”, you can now add acting [in a Broadway musical] to the list.

Entourage, HBO’s Sunday night scenester porn for the career-driven bro, is in its final season. And although the show is one of the more superficial things you’ll see on TV (this isn’t necessarily a bad thing; sometimes it’s fun to watch things that have little to no reliance on plot), the last few episodes are giving the illusion that life might not end up okay for Vince and the gang: careers are on the line, divorces are getting messy, and exes are pregnant and hateful. Entourage’s entourage will, of course, end up unscathed, but the show is creating the required sense doubt.
