The Bald Truth
Not exactly a shocker that Rachel Alexandra won the Preakness.
I mean, how were all those boys supposed to concentrate while running next to such a hot babe?
They're only equine, you know!
The Balder Truth
The Cardinals aren't merely hoping Chris Carpenter stays healthy when he returns for Wednesday's game against the Cubs. They also are actively taking steps to keep him in one piece.
When Carpenter bats, sources say, he has been ordered to never swing. Also, our crack investigative team has learned that Tony La Russa has asked Bud Selig for permission to have Carpenter pitch from a protective bubble.
THE BALDEST TRUTH
Spent the weekend chilling in the Detroit area with my college buddy, Chodz. He's a Chicago native who loves hockey and can't lose in the matchup between his old team, the Blackhawks, and his adopted faves, the Red Wings.
Frankly, he seemed a bit more excited about the latter than the former while watching Game 1 - and it's hard to blame him.
The Red Wings were so dominant Sunday that they stopped skating a few times just to make sure the Hawks were still on the ice.
