Last call: Angels, Kimbo Slice, Hulk Hogan and Bruce Springsteen?

October 7, 2008 | 10:21 pm


Well, the Angels finally found a way to generate some interest and the fans have come to life. Never has a squeeze play stirred the ire of so many fans. And, if Erick Aybar had sucessfully bunted, you have to figure many of those same fans would be writing in proclaiming Mike Scioscia to be a genius.

Did you hear that sound about mid-afternoon? That was the collective yawn of Clipperdom over the news that Elgin Baylor was stepping down as GM. At least he leaves a long legacy of near mediocrity.

Maybe EliteXC should line up Hulk Hogan as Kimbo Slice's next opponent. He knows how to follow a script.

And finally, the big news from the last two weeks isn't the Dodgers or Angels, it's that Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are going to play the halftime show at the Super Bowl. Here are some suggested songs:

Drive All Night

It's Hard to Be a Saint in the City (Only if New Orleans makes it)

Balboa versus the Earth Slayer

Born to Run

Does This Bus Stop at 82nd St? (Jerome Bettis joins him on stage)

Follow That Dream

I Wish I Were Blind (dedicated to Ed Hochuli)

Local Hero

Loose Ends

And for those who would like a sneak preview:
