With Halloween fast approaching, I have some links I need to unload today: In the "suggestion" category, those of you still looking for a costume should consider dressing up as Antoine Dodson. In the "scary and stupid" category, we have this buried alive ritual that's being offered in Minneapolis. In the "sexy" category, we have this gallery of cheerleaders dressed up for Halloween. And in the "so freakin' funny category," we have this picture of a kid dressed as Rangers manager Ron Washington.
Speaking Of The Rangers...Here is the video for the team's theme song, The Claw. Hopefully for Rangers fans, they'll be able to do the Claw a little more tonight than they did last night while getting smoked by the Giants.

Now THAT'S Ballpark Entertainment
Tony Bennett :: APYou might have seen Tony Bennett sing God Bless America during the seventh inning stretch. But what you might have missed was earlier in the game when Bennett sang I Left My Heart in San Francisco. Fox didn't show this live, but you can watch it here. This gives me a chance to also link to Bennett's best song, which happens to be featured in one of the best movies of all time.
