This video is all over the Internet: The Lakers' Metta World Peace wipes his face with the same towel that, seconds earlier, teammate Steve Nash had used to dry his arm pits.
A tough cell
Major League Baseball is going high-tech.
Beginning next season, cellphones will be available in dugouts for skippers to use to call for bullpen relief.
It's all part of T-Mobile's wireless partnership with MLB.
Apparently, the phones will have security features that will prevent others from listening in.
Teams will have the option of using the new setup or sticking with the hardwired phones.
We can't speak for every manager, but we're betting old-school Charlie Manuel uses the latter.
Hats a dumb idea
On Uni-watch.com, under the headline, "Just When You Thought the Stupid Couldn't Get Any Stupider," comes the following bit of absurdity:
MLB will add an "interview cap" to its already-saturated line of fan merchandize.
No word on what the Phillies cap will look like, but if it's anything like the Mets', which was leaked on uni-watch on Wednesday well . . . we'll pass.
By the way, the website reports that MLB - unlike the NHL - will not require its players to actually wear the cap during interviews.
So what's the point?
