Yankees' Rizzuto Dies at 89

Rizzuto, known as "The Scooter," was the oldest living Hall of Famer. He played for the Yankees throughout the 1940s and '50s, won seven World Series titles and played in five All-Star games.

"Phil was a gem, one of the greatest people I ever knew. A dear friend and great teammate," said Hall of Famer Yogi Berra, who frequently visited Rizzuto in his later years.

"He was a heck of a player, too. When I first came up to the Yankees, he was like a big actually, small brother to me. He's meant an awful lot to baseball and the Yankees and has left us with a lot of wonderful memories," he said.

At 5-foot-6, Rizzuto was a flashy player who could always be counted on for a perfect bunt, a nice slide or a diving catch in a lineup better known for its cornerstone sluggers. He played 13 seasons alongside the likes of Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle in a career interrupted by Navy service in World War II.

Man Tries to Take Crocs, Snakes on Plane

CAIRO, Egypt - It was very nearly a real-life version of "Snakes on a Plane." A man was stopped at Cairo's airport just moments before he boarded a Saudi Arabia-bound plane with carry-on bags filled with live snakes, as well as a few baby crocodiles and chameleons.

Security officials became suspicious of the 22-year-old Saudi man's bags when the X-ray machine at the departure gate gave odd readings. Police said they opened the bags and found a large number of reptiles, including at least one cobra, squirming to escape.

Hey. The 49ers lost.

Meyer wants to prove the wait was worth it

Regarding the Tim Hudson trade, Dan Meyer has something to say.

"I'm still left," he said.

Who can blame Meyer for feeling a little pride for being recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday? Not only did he outlast Juan Cruz and Charles Thomas - the other players acquired in the December 2004 trade that sent Hudson to Atlanta - but he overcame shoulder surgery, rehabbed the entire offseason and posted the third-lowest ERA in the Pacific Coast League.

I don't know about you, but the italics bug the crap outta me.

Anyway, dump. :)
