- Francoeur making fun of protective batting helmets makes the paper. “I’m not wearing it. There’s got to be a way to have a more protective helmet without all that padding. It’s brutal. We’re going to look like a bunch of clowns out there.” — Jeff Francoeur, New York Mets outfielder. Frenchie is also looking for suggestions on things to do in NYC on his blog.

- Canadian Blood Services is Anti-Gay. "Canadian Blood Services should revisit the outdated policy of not allowing homosexuals to donate blood. Only 80,000 people in Canada are presently living with HIV, which represents less than 0.003% of the population.
