This Tuesday is a momentous occasion for all. So much so, that the U.S. government has decided to brand it a holiday so that everyone could have a day off to observe this day. No, I’m not talking about Veterans day. I’m talking about the awarding of the NL Cy Young! Of course you guys know who I’m pulling for. Also, I’m closing the NL Cy Young contest today so this is it for the responses and we’ll see who wins on Tuesday.
I forgot to post this earlier, but I received a package from Rod over at Padrographs the other day and it was basically the rest of the Giants team set from 2008 Topps Updates & Highlights. Included in here was Timmy’s All-Star card. Now as many of you know, Tim didn’t play in this year’s All-Star game despite both teams going deep into their bench and having to play all their pitchers. If Timmy did pitch, who knows, maybe the NL would have won. Anyways, as it stands, it was reported that he was in the hospital with “flu-like symptoms.” In fact, that’s what it says on the back of his Updates & Highlights card. But there have been reports from sources that he just got a bad hangover from partying too hard the night before. Oh Tim, you are such a party animal.
