The Army is doing away with velcro. When pockets are packed, or sand's around, the velcro doesn't hold as well as a good ol' button.

The Rays jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first and sailed from there to a 10-4 victory over the Braves last night, in front of 30,448 at Turner Field in Atlanta.

After a two hour, 20 minute rain delay to start the evening, Tampa Bay came out swinging. Evan Longoria belted a two-run homer, then Sean Rodriguez doubled home Ben Zobrist and B.J. Upton, to put the Rays up 4-0 in their first at-bats. Atlanta got one back in the bottom half on the first, as Jason Heyward scored on a David Price wild pitch. In the second, John Jaso scored on a Carlos Pena sacrifice fly, to put the Rays ahead 5-1. In the bottom of the third, Chipper Jones scored on an Yunel Escobar ground out to second to cut the Tampa Bay lead to 5-2. Brian McCann scored in the fifth on Melky Cabrera's single up the middle to make it 5-3. The Rays then went to work and put the game away. In the sixth, Jaso and Carl Crawford scored on a line single to left by Zobrist, then, in the seventh, Hank Blalock scored on Crawford's triple to right, Crawford scored on a Longoria double, and Pena singled home Longoria. The Braves got a run in the bottom half of the seventh, on a solo homer by Jones, but could get no closer and Tampa Bay held on for the 10-4 win.

David Price fanned 7 and scattered 8 hits over five innings to get the win, he's now 10-2. Kenshin Kawakami struck out 6 but, with sloppy defense behind him(Atlanta committed 4 errors in the game), allowed 6 runs, just 2 earned on 7 hits in 5 innings, falling to 0-9.

The Tampa Bay Rays, 41-23 and still tied for first with the Yankees in the A. L. East, play the Braves again this evening, with the second of a three-game set in Atlanta. First pitch tonight is scheduled for 7:10pm EDT on 620AM WDAE, the Rays Radio Network and Sun Sports. The Rays visit the Marlins for three starting Friday, then come home for six games, three against San Diego and three against Arizona, starting next Tuesday.

It's a study that didn't need to be done: teen boys eat their parents out of house and home. Boys in their mid-teens often down an average of nearly 2,000 calories at lunch. (And we thought our Jimmy ate a lot now. Look what we have to look forward to!)

Look in the dictionary for the definition of the word cute, and you're likely to see this picture.

The vuvuzela is a hit. Not to fans watching the game but to iPhone and iPad users. The app that mimics the annoying blasting of the plastic African trumpet is getting downloaded like crazy. Eight months ago the developers saw almost no downloads. (No thanks. I'll just stick with my Atomic Fart app and call it good.)

************************************************

The Chicago Cubs won back-to-back World Series titles in 1907 and 1908, beating the Tigers both years. The Cubs now appear to be well on their way to streching the drought with no titles to 102 years.

Afghanistan authorities arrested a 52-year-old California construction worker who said he was there on a solo mission to kill Osama bin Laden. (A construction worker? He claimed to be part of an elite squad of super assassins codenamed The Village People. He must have been easy to spot in that yellow helmet and drooping tool belt.)
