Still waiting for an explanation on this. What the hell happened here? I mean, I get that Rivers was trying to talk to the refs, and Reid didn’t want him talking to the refs so he tried to box him out, or spot-weld him, and grind him, whatever. But there is actual contact made there.
What if this was the other way around? What if Reid was jawing with the ref and Rivers came up and literally used his butt to knock Reid out of the way. That’s a penalty flag, right? These aren’t rhetorical questions. I don’t know the rules. Physical contact in an aggressive manner between players and the opposing coach? What’s the ruling there?
Would LOVE to know what kinda golly-gee thing Rivers said to the walrus after Reid butt-checked him.

Nothing quite like an excited Philip Rivers celebration…
Man, what a game. I missed most of it because I took my daughter to see The Grinch at the Old Globe theatre (that’s true love right there). I did, however, re-watch most of the game, and I got to watch most of the 4th quarter live. Amazing finish. Rivers put together a comeback drive we all know he’s capable of. Just incredible. I had chills. Huge win. Everybody else in the AFC West lost. Remarkably, at 5-6, the Chargers still have a chance at a wildcard spot. A lot more on this game to come later…

Saw this live last night, and it made me crack up. Peyton Manning is walking through this guy and he couldn’t care less because he’s busy pushing off some dude who probably jockeyed him for position on a shot. I love it.

How ’bout the time Miss Florida and Miss California were draped all over Anthony Rizzo and Casey Kelly? Cubs and Padres fans unite! That’s Michelle Aguirre, Miss Florida, and Mabelynn Capeluj, Miss California. Mabelynn is a Padres fan, so this makes sense. Rizzo and Casey are both 24. Mabelynn is 22, but Michelle, on the other hand, this site says she is only 20 years old. Hmm… how’d she get into a Miami nightclub called STORY? Inquiring minds…
Assuming the boys are both currently single? Who knows…
Also, I hate the hashtag #califlorida more than you hate anything.
Check that, I hate the typed-out words “Hashtag you can’t sit with us” more…
I’m furious with myself for not going to Pearl Jam last night. Furious. What an idiot. A ton of friends went… they, along with everybody I follow on twitter, said it was the most amazing concert in the history of time. Sweet. Glad I missed it. Efffff.
Anyway, Eddie wore a Chargers hat from a fan in the crowd for a little while. Couldn’t find it anywhere on twitter or instagram except for the cap spun backwards in the photo up top with Eddie crushing a bottle of wine. Then, twitter came through like a champ. Hugo snapped the below photo and sent it to me.
Love it. Love Pearl Jam. Go Bolts.
Spencer Hall is an editorial director over at SB Nation. The Weather Channel is, well, The Weather Channel. This twitter conversation made me smile. That is all.
She’s got a jar of Crisco in her purse for dessert…
I did… although when I hit submit my internet crashed so I have no clue if it actually went through. Either way, I screengrabbed the important stuff. Bring back the brown, Mike Dee.
I have no clue why this made me laugh so hard. It just did. So I posted it. That’s the kinda crap you do when you have your own stupid blog.
Tell me if you’ve heard this one before… Padres sign a veteran to a one or two year deal that used to be an All-Star but absolutely sucked last year. Nah, me neither.
Josh Johnson was a freaking ACE with the Marlins. He had 3 seasons with double digit wins and in 2010, he posted a 2.30 ERA. Last year with the Blue Jays, he was 2-8 with a 6.20 ERA. Ouch.
Anyway, you can get all the details on the trade from Corey Brock here. Seems like Padres fans haven’t been this excited in an off-season since the Padres brought in the Professor in 2007.
Here’s to hoping we get the Marlins version of Josh Johnson, not the Blue Jays version.
