Today's A.M. Hot Clicks linked to a piece about Marlins outfielder Cameron Maybin using Miley Cyrus' Party in the U.S.A as his at-bat music. Since then, it's been brought to my attention by numerous folks that Troy Tulowitzki and Nick Johnson come to the plate to this song as well. I will try to further investigate this epidemic and find out why this is happening.
UPDATE, 5:19 p.m.: Tons of readers have chimed in to say that Johnson uses the song because it's a favorite of his 4-year-old daughter. I'm still waiting for excuses from Maybin and Tulowitzki.
The Final Nail In The Pistons' CoffinAfter wearing a Detroit Pistons jersey to school for 1,460 consecutive days, 12-year-old Eric Matecun has decided to end the streak tomorrow.
Lovely Lady Of The Day
Eva Mendes :: Neilson Barnard/Getty ImagesI'd like to thank 950 KJR-AM in Seattle. They are holding "The Bigger Dance," in which they'll crown the best looking female celebrity, which allows me to feature Eva Mendes. The bracket, which includes athletes (Gina Carano, Julia Mancuso, Natalie Gulbis, Danica Patrick, Ana Ivanovic, Lindsey Vonn, Maria Sharapova), WAGs (Minka Kelly, Nicole Scherzinger, Rihanna, Layla Kiffin, Elin Woods, Carrie Underwood, Eva Longoria) and SI Swimsuit models (Brooklyn Decker, Bar Refaeli, Marisa Miller), is extremely strong. You can register to fill one out and have a chance to win a trip for two to any sporting event here. Based on this evidence, I expect many of you will have Mendes advancing deep into the tourney.
