Play something... play anything... !

♦ If Ben Wallace's introductory press conference with the Bulls is televised this evening, will you watch? (Eno, how about you?) Here's the Chicago Sun-Times' John Jackson, introducing him to readers with a career retrospective.

♦ Uh-oh, is that Carlos Delfino squawking to the Argentinian press again? Oh Carlos! Você assim silly! (Hat tip to MLive.com's Full-Court Press.)

K-Dog mentioned it a couple of days ago. (Have you stopped by The Hangout, by the way?) Deadspin posted on it today. Are you looking forward to the new "Rocky" flick? I have to admit, after watching the trailer, I'm in. I'm buying. I might be a huge sucker, but this thing - with a broke, battered, old Rocky Balboa - looks pretty good. "Let's build some hurtin' bombs!"

And I can't get over the fact that Sylvester Stallone is sixty years old. My father was 61 when he passed away. Wow.

♦ Speaking of Deadspin, I hope Will hasn't jinxed the Tigers by picking them for the Wild Card spot in the American League. They're looking too good to pick against, though. Oh, wait - J-Lits just did it.

♦ Now that Aubrey Huff's been traded to Houston, are you beginning to get the feeling that the Tigers might not be getting the left-handed bat they and their fans want so badly? What if Dmitri Young is the lefty bat they bring in for the stretch run? (Next rehab stop for Da Meat Hook? Toledo.) 17 days and counting until the MLB trade deadline... (Hat tip to The Daily Fungo.)

♦ Here's what the Houston Chronicle's Richard Justice thinks of the deal.

♦ Did you see who stopped by to comment at The Wayne Fontes Experience? Congratulations, Big Al. You must be very pleased.

I met Pat Caputo in the Comerica Park press box a couple of weeks ago, sheepishly complimenting him on his new blog. We didn't talk very long (maybe because we were both on our way back from the bathroom) but he said he liked blogging, and is glad people are checking it out. Big Al, if I see him again, I'll ask him what he thinks of TWFE.

    A 61 year old Rocky? Too hard to believe. Can you imagine a 61 year old in real life fighting in a title fight? I can't.
