Comic strip about Mark Shapiro's house.
Trememdnous photo of Alex Cole and Albert Belle, from the SI_Valut Twitter feed, which is really a great follow for this kind of thing.
Having to re-learn Adobe Illustrator for work, so I spent the afternoon refamiliarizing myself by doing a lousy knock-off of a great Albert Belle photo (http://images.wikia.com/baseball/images/3/30/Albert_Belle.jpg). Figured, why not let this into the world, where it can do so much good?
So, you may have heard, they just finished playing the last game ever at Yankee Stadium — once the home to the greatest organization in sports, a symbol of American excellence. Back then, there...
I mentioned in the column that if he even tried just a little not to be the world’s biggest jerk, he’d own the city. It led to an ugly scene in the clubhouse the next day. Albert accused me of going into his locker and reading his index cards. Uh, right. Nobody, including other players, went anywhere near Albert’s locker. I’d be more likely to willingly visit a hell mouth.
I noticed as the confrontation was developing that lots of players and media were moving away from where Albert and I were standing. I could see one guy sidling toward me out of the corner of my eye. Finally Sandy Alomar Jr. rushed in and saved me from possibly being pile driven or hit with the roll of quarters Albert no doubt kept in his waistband for just such occasions.
