R.A. Dickey digs Haruki Marukami short stories, red velvet cake, Chopin's Nocturnes and REO Speedwagon.

Sounds like he's gearing up for a post-MLB career closing for the Fukuoka Hawks.

And he loves all that great 80's music: "Hi, my name is R[.A. D]ickey and I'm a Pisces... I love computers and hot tamales!"

I watched ESPN this morning when they showed the SNL bit with a PIP of Smith. Smith covered his eyes and appeared to laugh.

Kerry Wood calls it a career.
Excuse me, I have something in my eye! /turns away.

I was at Wood's fourth career start. Always been a fan. Shame he couldn't stay healthy. He's retiring with the second best K/9 ratio in the bigs.

I love that they bleeped "Hell."

Oh my god, Folkways, that is the greatest blooper reel. I'm also very impressed with how high he rides that hat on his head without it falling off.

I'm also very impressed with how high he rides that hat on his head without it falling off.

We called it "Dad Hat" in high school; a friend's dad dropped by one day and the son turned to me and said, "If that hat gets any higher, it will be floating on his head next time he visits."

If I'm not mistaken, that's a U of Tennessee ball cap he's wearing. Does his possible affiliation with UTenn have anything to do with his obvious ineptitude?

Nonetheless, great link, Folky.

I hope this isn't true.

There's doubt it is true. But even if it was, is being drunk on a subway and hitting on girls you think are sisters as you rock your chef pants really so bad? He's made bigger errors.

The Los Angeles Kings set the record straight about their logo, what sport they play
