All Things Bubba

Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

Friday, August 29, 2008


A monster is bearing down on the Gulf Coast, the Yankees' season is probably over, and Carl Pavano is on the mound in the Bronx, but hey, it's Friday. How bad can it be?

Only a couple of hours left on this item. It's another pair of Bubba Crosby game-used pants:

What's interesting is that, judging from the photo, they appear to be short pants. All the others I've seen have been long pants. (Strangely, they are listed as being from the 2006 season. I don't remember Bubba wearing high socks in 2006. He'd switched over to the long pants by then, I thought.)

Would be better if they were home pinstripes rather than road grays, but still pretty cool. There are already a couple of bids.

Gustav has strengthened and gotten a lot bigger. It's getting to look like the classic hurricane:

The track is still flipping around a lot, east one day, west the next. But it seems the chance of Houston getting hit is increasing.

The Mets' Triple-A team, the New Orleans Zephyrs, have cancelled their last two games because of Gustav. New Orleans is evacuating already, and the ones who aren't are probably preparing to, so I suspect the stands would be pretty empty anyway.
