‘Lotta Briefs — Ticker Tape

Very good news for Pittsburgh Steelers Fans!  Head Coach Mike Tomlin has signed a contract extension through 2016.   During his tenure, Tomlin has coached the team into four playoffs including two trips to the Super Bowl where he is 1-1.

Another blemish for Sports.  Penske Racing’s AJ Allmendinger’s “B” Sample also tested positive which results in an indefinite suspension for the driver of the #22 car.   AJ claims that he has not knowingly consumed anything which would have caused a positive test.  He has hired an independent lab to conduct thorough testing on every product in his home and motor coach to find what might have triggered the results.  Sam Hornish Jr. will be driving the #22 car until or if this is resolved..

Rangers game was as UGLY as it gets!!   Ian Kinsler got ejected in the bottom of the 1st — after getting on base when he got drilled by Buchholz.  Ian got picked off trying to steal and had enough brief words to not make the ump happy.  M…ore wild pitching late in the game when Padilla decked Beltre leaving Adrian so dazed he was removed from the game.  Joe Nathan gave up the winning run in the top of the 9th.   It’s the curse of the “After The All-Star Break” returning.

    Tested positive for what? I figure you must be high on something to drive at those speeds:)

      It has not been announced by officials what he tested positive for. AJ did announce last week that he “tested positive for a stimulant.” I experienced driving a NASCAR Simulator last spring. I cannot even imagine what driving a real car is like at the speeds I experienced. Of course, as you know ‘bro, I can’t even handle a ferris wheel at 6 Flags!
