June 4, 2010 - Umpin' Ain't Easy!

no perfect game galaragga
Bud Selig has ruled with his legendary pillow-soft fist and said that the call by umpire Jim Joyce that cost pitcher Armando Galarraga a perfect game will not be overturned. The good news for Galaragga is that you would have remembered him for about 2 days had he pitched a perfect game. Now, you will remember him for a good 2.5 to 3 days.
rue mcclanahan death
In a shocking turn of events, Betty White now stands alone as the last living Golden Girl, as Rue McClanahan, better known to the layman as Blanche Devereaux, has died at the age of 76. McClanahan was, of course, along with Estelle Getty, the original modern cougar.
joran van der sloot arrested
Some Dutch guy, previously connected with the Natalee Holloway case in Aruba, was apprehended in Chile in connection with the death of a Peruvian woman, and is also being charge with extortion in America. So, now that we got that straight, this is clearly way too much attention being given to a Peruvian murder case while we face environmental ruin here.
new oil well cap
Speaking of the aforementioned environmental ruin, as Barack Obama finally expressed how crazy furious he was about the oil spill, (let out that politically-forced emotion, buddy, let it all out) BP engineers try yet another attempt at stopping the massive oil leak below the sea. Makes you think you should get into the oil business...it's starting to seem as though you don't have to know a whole lot about how the stuff works.
john wooden death
John Wooden, the legendary men's basketball coach at UCLA, has been hospitalized and is in grave condition. The Wizard of Westwood is 99 years old, and just 4 months shy of hitting triple digits. Reminds me of the time he almost lead UCLA to 100 straight wins before losing to Notre Dame. I'm not saying the Fighting Irish are responsible for Wooden's current condition, but it's not out of the realm of possibility...

south carolina politician raghead comment
A South Carolina politician made some racially insensitive remarks about an opponent and Barack Obama, which is absurd in this day and age, but even more absurd is the positive response this might actually receive in South Carolina.
cat saves woman from pitbulls
Apparently, a woman was saved from a deadly attack by pitbulls by her cat. I assume, of course, that it was some type of predatory cat, like a lion, tiger or even a simple puma.
cool homes on the market
If you are one of the 3 or 4 people who happen to have a ton of extra cash just lying around, and want to move into some really ridiculous home built with boulders or in a cave, then this article is for you.
dirty diaper thief
I'm no psychological expert, but I'm gonna go ahead and say that if you go around stealing dirty diapers, the jail time you are facing is probably the least of your problems. I also have to think people would just give dirty diapers to you if you wanted them that bad.
waffle house employee wild ride
Sure, working at the Waffle House can be a crazy experience any day, but especially on those days when you jump on the hood of the car of some hoodlums trying to dine and dash from your fine establishment.

This perfect game really happened...seeing as it was based on a true story, and there were no umpires prominently involved. I've actually not read this book, but it also features a little kid on the cover, so I figure it should be inspiring too. Let me know.
