There is no way that I was going to pass this tweet up today.
Michael Pineda passed his drivers test today. Evidently, his mph on the road was significantly less than on the mound.

For those that don’t know, or have never heard of Michael Pineda, he is the 2-time minor league pitcher of the year for the Seattle Mariners. Lots of buzz beginning to go around about this young guy. Watch him here and here. FYI: he’s hit 99 mph on the radar gun this year. Hope he never hits 99 in a car. Wow!
One more from the Mariners because there’s no other way to explain it other than saying “only in Seattle”. You’ve got to see that picture!

SPORTS IN LIFE
I came across this tweet a couple of days ago that I’ve been meaning to post. I realize that not everyone will understand the significance of it but if you stop and think about it, you might see the whole idea is powerful. I like being able to find stories of how sports can change a culture, a thought pattern or just how it can affect life. This is one of those.

Here is the link to the video. In the midst of the current NFL labor issues, the pending NBA labor issues, craziness in the SEC and who knows what with the L.A. Dodgers, it’s nice every once in awhile to look at the good side of sports.
