Obligatory Sports Babe
Today we'll go with Daniella Sarahyba, best known for being a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. I came across Daniella today while checking out COED Magazine's article on the 2011 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover model short list, which Daniella is a part of. See more of her and four other hotties there.

For Once, Jose's Not The Canseco Making Headlines- Ozzie Canseco Arrested For DUI
Via TMZ: Ozzie Canseco, Jose Canseco's twin brother, was arrested early on Saturday morning for a DUI in Tampa, Florida. The former major leaguer(65 career at bats) blood alcohol level was reportedly .109/.108, with the legal limit being .08%.
I'm really excited to see Jose's tweets about this.
Tacoma, WA Middle Schools Suck
A 13-year-old student at a Tacoma, Washington middle school was sent home for wearing a Pittsburgh Steelers jersey on "Seattle Seahawks Appreciation Day". No, seriously. From The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
"The reception was anything but immaculate Friday, when seventh-grader Grendon Bailie wore a Franco Harris Steelers jersey to his middle school in Tacoma, Wash., on Seattle Seahawks Appreciation Day.
Grendon, 13, scored no points with administrators, who barred him from classes for not following Truman Middle School's directive that Seahawks jerseys or colors would be the only permitted exceptions from the dress code at the public school.
This time, unlike in the 2006 Super Bowl, the Steelers fell to the Seahawks -- Grendon decided to just go home rather than change out of Steelers attire. And that was fine with his parents, Jacqueline B. and Stoughton Bailie Sr., Fox Chapel and Shadyside natives, respectively, and diehard Steeler fans.
The school's reaction wasn't totally unexpected by Mr. Bailie, who had encouraged his son to support the team he loved even though the school had made clear the preceding day that only Seahawks or regular school clothing would be permitted."
How unbelievably ridiculous. Good for the kid and his parents to not let a foolish middle school mess with their team pride.
Quote Of The Day II
"Two Steelers have told me, if they catch the Ravens in the right defense, they have a trick play ready to go today that they’ve never run before."- Reporter Bob Holtzman this morning on ESPN, who would go on to explain more about the play. Something tells me the Steelers didn't want that exact information out there, but the Ravens' people certainly aren't complaining. (Via Black Sports Online)
