Et Tu, Melky?

Last week we heard the collective breath leave the many fans of the San Francisco Giants who had placed their hope in Melky Cabrera.  His fall from grace not only hurts the Giants’ playoff hopes, it also hurts baseball as he had been one of a handful of rising stars this season.  In fact, it was only a couple months ago that he captivated the nation in propelling the NL all-stars to consecutive wins in the mid-season classic and bringing the game’s MVP award home to the Bay area.  He was a star in the making but that disappeared into the blackhole of a 50-game suspension.

Now, you may be asking yourself, “What exactly does it sound like when a star gets sucked into a blackhole?” and you can be forgiven if you missed the answer with all the white noise emanating from the gas giants that make up the sports punditocracy.  See, as luck would have it, CNN just happened to provide us an answer last week (fast forward to about the four minute mark).

Hm, not as dramatic as I would have expected.  So long, Melky.

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you
know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get
the problem fixed soon. Kudos
