It's like I've slipped into the Twilight Zone or something in the last 2 hours.
First, a story breaks about MLB investigating A-Rod for participating in illegal underground poker games and possibly leading to a suspension. I'll be honest, I had no clue that A-Rod even played poker. I thought he was too busy raking and banging Hollywood has beens. So this comes as a bit of a surprise to find out that not only does he enjoy getting his Doyle Brunson on, but he plays in high-stakes underground games, has been warned about it before, and now might be facing suspension for it. Dude, come on. Just go to AC.
Second, Nick Swisher is releasing an album of cover songs, with kids as his backup singers. I can't even begin to think of anything to say about this, so I'll just show you the song list and say that I would be interested in hearing Swish take on "Heroes" and "Everyday People."
