Hi Aunt Molly.

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

From my pal Rod Pedersen's blog(rodpedersen.blogspot.com), here's the weird-but-true story of a Canucks' fan who drove 1,000 to San Jose for a game, partied with the owner, wandered the streets of San Jose in nothing but socks and a hospital gown, then got free tickets to the next game. (Also shows just how dangerous heavy drinking can be.)

ST PETERSBURG -- David Price was on his game Wednesday, but Tampa Bay's offense wasn't.
The Rangers earned a 3-0 victory behind a stellar pitching performance from Colby Lewis to beat the Rays and clinch the three-game series at Tropicana Field. It was just the second time that Tampa Bay has been shut out this season.

ST. LOUIS --  Nate Schierholtz made each one of his three singles count Wednesday night.
His first one led off the sixth inning and started the Giants' three-run uprising that tied the score.
His next hit tied the score in the ninth inning after San Francisco had two outs with nobody on base.
Schierholtz's final hit was the most conclusive -- another two-out single, which he delivered in the 11th inning. It broke the tie he created and propelled the Giants to a strenuous but satisfying 7-5 triumph over the St. Louis Cardinals.

The secret is out -- Americans don't want small, fuel-sipping econo-cars for a reason. Automakers have long tried to figure out how to get us to buy them but, well, our butts are too big and we demand a bigger ride. Seriously -- that's the real reason. Researchers interviewed a bunch of Americans -- 67% of us are overweight now -- and they say our growing waste-lines and need for comfort are what keeps many of us out of econo-cars.
