More political correctness bullshit: The Houston Astros are celebrating their 50th season by wearing their original uniforms on opening day – with one tiny alteration.

Spring training has begun! Seattle Mariners’ pitching coach Carl Willis: “If you’re left-handed, you’re on field four. If you’re not sure you’re left-handed, talk to me.” I'll be broadcasting a few M's games mid-March and then throughout the regular season.
No GLEE SUMMER TOUR this year. It’s been cancelled. Official reason: To give the cast a well-deserved rest. Real reason: No one was buying tickets. Maybe if they had Charlie Sheen on the bill...
