1) What Does a No Hitter Mean? – One of the holy grails in baseball is known as the no-hitter. This means that a certain pitcher stayed in the game for all 9 innings and did not allow the other team to have one single hit. Think about it, 9 innings, 3 batters (at least) per inning, essentially 27 all told, not allowing a single one of them to get a hit. That is pretty remarkable. I was jost told by a lovely lady that it is the equivalent of a painless Brazilian bikini wax. Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants came close to performing the ultimate bikini wax last night but only got through 7 innings. Great attempt though. Feel free to say: Man, Lincecum almost threw a no-no last night, dude still got it.
2) Hot in Miami? – The Miami Heat lead their NBA Playoff series against the Philidelphia 76ers 2 games to 0. This is expected but it is important to make sure to root against the Heat. They are annoying and Lebron is a cocky guy who has no redeeming qualities. Ok to exclaim: Lebron sucks, can’t wait until he gets knocked out next round.
