Sade de la Tarde: Deacon Hates St. Louis

Deacon Jones is a little pissed that his number hasn't been retired by the St. Louis FC. He should consider himself lucky. Isn't it bad enough he is in that idiotic St. Louis Ring of Honor? Joining other Rams greats such as Larry Wilson, Jim Hart and Dan Dierdorf ... Oh wait, that's the wrong (expletive) team.

Jones told the LA Times that him not having his No. 75 retired is asinine. No kidding.

Be sure to read the full article.

Here are the rest of the links sent in by Dr. Johnny Fever and Reader Matt P. Maybe the former will finally figure out how to use his log-in.

  • The LA Times is also reporting that Angels General Manager Tony Reagins acknowledged today that he is looking outside the organization for pitching help and has contacted the representatives for free-agent starters such as Pedro Martinez, Paul Byrd and Mark Mulder.
  • More baseball. Good for Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Romero, who is 2-0 with a 1.71 ERA in his first three career starts. The Jays have been heavily criticized for taking Romero with the sixth overall pick in the 2005 draft — ahead of players such as Troy Tulowitzki (7), Jay Bruce (12), Jacoby Ellsbury (23) and Matt Garza (25). Go Ricky.

No way. That lady (and I use that term loosely) is a Rangers fan. Blue Seats material for sure.

I see a bright future ahead for both.

And Deacon rocks.

It's a damn shame that the Rays were last year's Rays, as they were probably the team most primed for contraction previously. Hell, I'd still boot them over the Marlins; at least they've turned into the modern-day Expos, grooming stud players for the rest of the league to take.

Take the Nats while you're at it.

Nowdays, Rangers games are as close to a sampling of authentic NYers as you'll get. They let us drink on the commuter rail around here, so the fans arrive ripped.

Don't blame us for that broad. LI is DWI territory. A real NYer would never get a DWI. She's straight Long Island white trash, and Suffolk County (NY's answer to Stockton, probably) at that.

The birds out east are sluts, but that pick should give you indication that it's hard to find a bird over 22 decent enough to cock-whip.

the first team to be contracted should be the ANGELS!
followed by fla.,then wash d.c., possibly the pirates as well.

Absolutely amusing thread over at that there Fark.com about Teachers. I'm sure throwing more money at Education will do the trick, just like it has every time it's been done for the last 40 years.

People from Cincinnati are historically very slow. Why are you so judgemental ?
