While We’re Waiting is an agglomeration of nifty internet items that we find through various ways. There’s nothing like a fresh set of internet links to start your day. Happy Sunday, here’s what I found! We like to share with you, so share things you find with us by emailing our tips account.
“For Jhonny Peralta, this is 2006 all over again. He started slow and just slogged along, hitting .257 with 13 HR, 68 RBI and drawing criticism for his effort and defense from manager Eric Wedge, who wrote Peralta’s name into the lineup 149 times. The Indians should seriously look into trading Peralta, who has not liked the switch to third base or much of anything else about being with the Tribe these days.” [Terry Pluto, Plain Dealer]
Danny Green led the Cavs’ summer league team with 18 points against the Lakers yesterday in Vegas. Christian Eyenga? 1 point and 3 boards in 18 minutes. [NBA.com boxscore]
The Cavs could be the New Raptors. Please take note, Mr. Bosh. “Should the Cavaliers fail to land the “stretch-four” they’ve been seeking, another player they have some interest in is free agent small forward Joey Graham, according to an NBA source.” [Mary Schmitt Boyer, Plain Dealer]
Apparently being from Pittsburgh leads to body hair. I’m assuming we’re talking about the women. ”Then, suddenly, a whiff of something that smells like a hellish mix of stale garlic, air pollution, body odor and death reaches your nostrils, giving you the first hint of the debacle to follow. Before you know it, you’re surrounded by urine-colored hankie waving, Appalachian dialect-using, body-hair overflowing Yinzer fans, sure to hoot and holler with noxious hiyucking glee whenever they are handed a touchdown despite Santonio Holmes clearly being out of bounds. Hell. Pure hell. I’ve been there, trust me. Well, it’s up to you to reduce the pain.” [Barry McBride, OBR]
