This is Steve Buckhantz’s college ID from James Madison. It’s also amazing. It comes via the JMU Sports Blog, and it reminds me, there are images every week that maybe don’t deserve a full post but certainly deserve a moment’s recognition. And so, this post is for them. Starting with:
Yup, that’s Mike Green, lifting a cold one into the air while swaying along with a Bon Jovi tribute band on Thursday night, 24 hours after the Caps’ season ended. I don’t think anyone would expect the Caps to lock themselves into solitary cells and cry tears of anguish for their season, but jeez, he looks really happy, doesn’t he? The full video, courtesy John Erskine, is here.
Then comes Charlie Davies’s nasty gash. Kyle Sheldon reports that the gore came from the cleat of Seattle’s Patrick Ianni. Kyle also posted the image.
What else? How about Chris Cooley maniacally grinning at his blow torching powers? He posted this at SportsBUZZ, and has many more pottery updates on his Twitter feed. Don’t forget to visit Cooley’s gallery in Leesburg from 6-9 for First Friday.
And speaking of Redskins and twitter, here are Anthony Armstrong’s new Redskins-and-Bible-inspired cleats. “The sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the desires off the diligent are fully satisfied,” is the reference, according to Armstrong’s Twitter feed.
Now, a different sort of footwear. These are John Wall’s 2011-2012 shoes, meant to match the Wizards’ new color scheme. They’re also ugly. Too bad. Via Bullets Forever.
And now, Internet trolls. Colin Cowherd, making his voice heard. Lamely. In a sad cry for attention. Which I’m now answering. Via @RecordsAndRadio.
Baseball’s turn. The NHL has gotten so big around these parts, that MASN is apparently now running hockey stats during baseball broadcasts. Odd. Via The Fightins.
Speaking of baseball and Philly, I read a lot about Todd Coffey’s epic bloody nose, but I wanted to see pure red blood. This was the closest I got; it comes from Big League Stew.
And finally, speaking of baseball, reader Jordan checked out Bryce Harper this week; his observations included Harper practicing his pitching motion during pre-game warmups. Put him in the rotation, skip!
I’m gonna try to do this weekly, so if you have images that need to be seen...
