Armenians in Sports…

The 10 Most Influential in History from the Bleacher Report.  This is a nice article and it talks about The Genocide.

Hat Tip: Glen and Alice

Look around the landscape of professional sports and you’ll see Armenians thriving in many and varied corners.There have been plenty of great Armenians in the world of sports including analysts, coaches and players.

However, in the early 1900’s people would have never considered this success as a possibility.

From 1915-1918, 1.5 million Armenians were massacred in what is now known as the “Armenian Genocide”. Many people considered the Armenian people to be completely wiped out from the face of the earth.

I’d like to personally thank the Bleacher Report for posting this article.


Ok, I’m a nerd.  Besides being married to baseball with hockey as my girlfriend, I like tennis a lot too, especially the women’s game.  No, not just because a lot of them are hot, I prefer longer points.

In any case, 20 year old Canadian Eugenie Bouchard is an excellent tennis player and she’s hot. After a recent victory at the Australian open, the male interviewer asked her to “twirl” to show the crowd her cute pink dress.  I’m sure that wasn’t the only thing the interviewer wanted to see but I digress.  Bouchard complied and found it amusing but that hasn’t stopped the feminazis from crying sexism.

Below is a clip of twirlgate from youtube.

Did I mention the Eugenie is hot?

You’re welcome!

A Quick Detour…

Serena Williams Loses At Wimbledon…

Ok, sorry, this is not a baseball post, but the way the Tigers have been playing, and are playing, they’re getting destroyed in Toronto this afternoon, 8-2, can you blame me.

Serena Williams, the odds on favorite to win The Championships, Wimbledon 2013, was ousted this morning by Germany’s Sabine Lisicki, 6-2, 1-6, 6-4.

I have to be honest (I’ve never thought much of lying anyway.), I just got into tennis about 4 years ago when I saw The Great Dane, Caroline Wozniacki play.  Once I started watching, I realized the hotness of the likes of Maria Sharapova and the Radwanska sisters and I was hooked.

I prefer women’s tennis over men’s, not only because the women are generally hot, but the points seem to be much longer, they have longer rallies.  The men’s game has so much power a point seems to last only a few seconds.

It’s the top of the 6th in Toronto, still 8-2 Blue Jays.  Fielder has homered and Victor is 1 for 3.  He actually scored a run on a double by Infante.
