Last night I had a dream that I was denied my fellowship in the first rounds - I wasn't even invited to submit a full proposal. I was disappointed, but relieved, because then I knew that I'd be taking the other job. In my dream, all of these other things indicated to me that this was the right choice. Later on in my dream, though, 3 of my friends killed themselves. So hopefully not all dreams come true.
Gary Sheffield did not get punched. It was clear that the fan was trying to cheer and pound on the side of the stands like all the other fans were doing. He didn't hit Sheffield at all, nor does it look like the fan was even TRYING to hit Sheffield. He wasn't even looking at him. I think it's ridiculous that Sheffield is being commended for keeping his cool, which apparently involved LOSING HIS SHIT and punching the fan back. Yeah, really commendable. And Sheffield himself can't even say that he got hit! He's going to need a better attorney because the, "I felt like something hit my face, so I wiped away my lip to make it look like I got hit" story just doesn't cut it, my friend.
Apparently A-Rod saved a boy from being hit by a truck (but only because the kid was a Yankees fan) which almost makes up for the fact that he ain't done shit by way of fielding since he came to the Yankees.
