From the semi-finals Little League World Series game between the Japanese team and Mexican team comes this clip of one of the Japanese players taking a fastball off the chin. Look at how stoic he is about it. I’m not sure he even BLINKS. Sure, you spit some blood and teeth out but you take your lumps and go down the line. That’s OLD SCHOOL.

Talk about making a notable debut; Aloisio is a striker on the second-division Brazilian soccer club Vasco da Gama who managed to knock himself unconscious in a unique manner. After colliding with an opponent, Aloisio choked on his chewing gum, losing consciousness for several minutes on the field.
“It was a very serious situation,” Vasco doctor Paulo Cesar Rocha said. “Luckily we identified the problem quickly and took the gum out to help him breathe again.”
With a propensity to get injured AND a propensity for choking I can’t believe Omar Minaya isn’t on a plane right now, contract in hand.
“I don’t remember a lot,” Aloisio told the media. “I only remember the doctor taking the gum out. I have never been scared like this — no more chewing gum for me.”
In Houston, Texas, fans at Reliant Stadium may find their thirsts not quite quenched. Where once their cups overfloweth with 24 ounces of great tasting, less filling beer, now their cups runneth dry with a mere 20 ounces. The price, obviously, remains the same.
Vice President for Communications Tony Wyllie had this to say: “If we’d served 24 ounces this year, the price would be higher. Honestly, it was more of a responsibility decision [to try and cut down heavy drinking]. It wasn’t a business decision. … We as the Texans wanted to do the most responsbile thing.”
You bet! This has NOTHING to do with the team making more money…
And to only point out how ass-backwards America is next to our European compatriots, German soccer team Bayern Munich — who are currently stuck in 14th place – will give out 7,000 liters of free beer before their game on Saturday.
Hmm. Less beer for the same price or FREE beer… hmm…hmm… You know, I’m switching allegiances. I’m now a Football fan. You win this round Germany.
I haven’t posted in DAYS, since I started this blog in March of 08 I haven’t taken as many days off as I just did. I apologize. I will say though that it has rejuvenated me and was well-needed. So get ready for a (hopefully) barrage of awesomeness coming at you today and every day hereafter until my death.
