Does anyone actually do work on Fridays? No? I didn’t think so. Check out these links and kill some of that clock before quitting time.
- Although it’s been announced that the Tigers are calling up Casper Wells to the big leagues, no one is sure who’s place he is taking just yet. At the Detroit Tigers Weblog, Billfer has an idea, but it’ll involve a lot of traffic between Toledo and Detroit in the next couple weeks.
- Well, if this whole football thing doesn’t work out, Tim Tebow appears to have a future in baseball. Tebow took some cuts with the Memphis University baseball team, putting on a laser show in batting practice. Sadly, there’s no video yet.

Ndamukong Suh is seriously doing everything possible to impress Lions fans before he even steps into training camp. This time, he’s making sure he gets to said camp on time by hiring Roosevelt Barnes and Eugene Parker to represent him. [via Lions Gab]
Today’s random video and lowlight after the jump…
RANDOM AWESOME VIDEO OF THE DAY
Jared Dudley and Goran Dragic try their best to replicate Steve “The Terminator” Nash’s one-eyed performance in Game 4 against the San Antonio Spurs.
ROB’S LOWLIGHT OF THE DAY
In honor of my laptop (specifically the dead power cord), we’re going with a lowlight today. It’s a good thing Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson is, well… an Olympic gold medalist, because she has no future in anything that involves throwing. Umm… is she 18 yet? (Yup.)
