Ridiculous News Items of the Day
#1) E3 bans T&A at their industry show.
“Material, including live models, conduct that is sexually explicit and/or sexually provocative, including but not limited to nudity, partial nudity and bathing suit bottoms, are prohibited on the show floor, all common areas, and at any access points to the show.”
No 'bathing suit bottoms' on the show floor? Glad I kept the receipt. Seriously, what's wrong with everyone?
#2) Mike Piazza DH'ing for the Yankees.
Considering the way George Steinbrenner thinks, it is a shock that Piazza hasn't already been fitted for pinstripes. The Yankees have snapped up the most popular former Mets: Darryl Strawberry, David Cone, Dwight Gooden, Robin Ventura, Todd Zeile, Al Leiter. Sticking it to the Mets is one of The Boss' favorite hobbies now that he doesn't fire managers anymore.
Two things going on here. First, Yankee fans make it sound like the Yankee nation, front office included, could care less about our lowly Mets, but I think we all know it is far from the truth. Screw all of 'em. Second, Mike Piazza in pinstripes would look oh so wrong.
Et tu brute?
