Love Baseball, But It's Not Hockey

Check out this photo of Wayne Gretzky getting chummy with none other than Cheryl Tiegs:

Tiegs of course was once the hottest sex symbol on the planet. She looks great even in a New York Yankees T-Shirt, doesn't she?!

I am starting to miss hockey already. I like watching Wimbledon. I enjoy baseball. But it's just not the same.

Maybe it's because hockey players are true warriors. Baseball players, by comparison, are pansies.

Brian Clapp has a fun read comparing hockey players and baseball players. Here is a snippet:

Mario Lemieux: While on pace to break Wayne Gretzky’s single season scoring record, the Penguins superstar announced that he had been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and would have to undergo radiation treatment for at least two months. Lemieux’s life and career were both threatened.

On the last day of his radiation treatment, Lemieux left a Pittsburgh hospital headed for the airport and flew directly to Philadelphia for a game THAT NIGHT. In his first game back he scored a goal and an assist and even got a standing ovation from the Philadelphia fans; fans who are best known for their accuracy throwing batteries at the opposition, not giving applause.

Meanwhile In Baseball - In 2004 Sammy Sosa spent 15 days on the disabled list with back spasms caused by sneezing too hard.

Here is Clapp's full article. Some of the baseball injuries are just hilarious.
