Well, first off - a very happy new year. I hope you had a fun, safe night to ring in 2007. My place is an absolute mess... But there's some sort of saying where you should be thankful for the mess because that means that you had friends surrounding you.
Let's start the new year right - With the 2006 Darwin Awards.
Since I love those retrospective lists, let's keep moving along with them. From the useless information department: The wild and wacky baseball stories from 2006.
One of my favorites to watch was:
Tigers first baseman Sean Casey managed to get thrown out at first base, 5-to-7-to-3 in your scorecard, in an Aug. 24 game against the White Sox. He hit a line drive that ticked off the glove of third baseman Joe Crede and landed in left field. But Casey thought Crede had caught it, so he headed back to the dugout. Which allowed left fielder Pablo Ozuna to scoop up the baseball and whoosh it to first for the strangest out of the year.
Another list - this time a little less fun... Top 25 censored stories. (Thanks to Mike who once again reminds us to always question what we're being spoon fed from the media).
Back to sports. But this time it's a video. When it comes to team sports, just about everyone in my family would prefer to make the great pass rather than score the points. Which is really funny when we play some sort of sport together - nobody wants to do the scoring. In the family tradition of great assists - The top 10 NBA assists of 2006.
And the final list of the day - 100 things we learned in 2006.
