“Miggy Got Some Hops!”

That quote is from Rod Allen in this afternoon’s game after he saw this from the Tigers superstar slugger:

Double Entendres for the Win!

Brian Anderson, color guy for the Tampa Bay Rays, caught himself in a hilarious double entendre when discussing Miss USA Laura McKeeman (who works for FOX Sports w/Anderson & Co.) and his dad.  Enjoy.

When Mario Impemba and Rod Allen began talking about Delmon Young‘s … ahem free-swinging ways… on Tuesday night’s telecast, Rod could barely contain himself at the sight of Young’s walk count for the season.  Witness aurally below:

Kate Upton in Detroit at Comerica Park

Coming back from break to start the bottom of the eighth, Fox Sports Detroit clued viewers in on a special guest in the ballpark as supermodel and native Michigander (born in St. Joseph) Kate Upton was shown with friends enjoying a Tigers win.  I spontaneously combusted immediately, but now I’m back.  She (unsurprisingly) looked great in her Tigers hat as she and her friends sang “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey… a Comerica Park (and any Detroit arena/stadium for that matter) staple.  Now, for your viewing pleasure:

How’d You Do That?

I love this kind of stuff.  Probably because I’m a nerd.  This is Felix Doubront and Daniel Bard discussing pitching in the Red Sox dugout during Wednesday afternoon’s game in Toronto.  I know this probably happens in every dugout from the Majors to Single-A ball so I’m not pretending it’s rare, I just like when they show us on camera.  I’m already a huge Doubront fan and while I was down on Bard coming into the season, his debut against the Jays was impressive as it included 17 swing-and-misses.  One start isn’t enough to completely change my opinion, but I’m at least slightly more intrigued than I was during Spring Training.
