Howard Goes Yard In Backyard

howard derby 1.jpgRyan Howard hit seven home runs in the first round of the Home Run Derby (the cool kids call them bombs) to advance to the semifinals. He hit eight more in the second round to finish with 15.

The two players with the most homers after two rounds advances to the finals, so Howard needs help.


Nelly and Chuck Berry are playing at the All-Star Gala after the Derby. When I think of Nelly I think of Dan Plesac, who used to dance to Nelly during batting practice in 2003. When I think of Berry, I think of Michael J. Fox in Back to the Future — one of my favorite movies as a kid. The others? Oh, I’m glad you asked. I’d say Ghostbusters and The Goonies belong in my top three as a kid. (Ghostbusters 2 never happened, in my opinion.) Thankfully, my tastes have matured considerably since then. I’d say my favorite movies today are Caddyshack, Stripes, Wedding Crashers and Anchorman. Oh, and Chocolat. Movie magic.
