Chi Chi joins Red Sox

The struggling Red Sox are in desperate need of a solid 4th starter. They have taken a rather unusual step in recruiting golf funny man Chi Chi Rodriguez. The young General Manager of the Red Sox, Theo Epstein, was heard as saying something like "the Yankees always seem to struggle with knuckleballer Tim Wakefield, just wait until Chi Chi shows them his 'Three Fingered Salsa Dancin' Slider' they'll be running to the dugout crying like little babies".

Chi Chi claims he can throw in excess of 43 MPH when he gets all of his 5' 7" 120 pounds into it.

Short guys rule!!! Remember the Bugs Bunny slo pitch - Strike 1,2,3 yerout. If Chi Chi can pitch, maybe they'll gimme a shot.

"Help me if you can I'm feeling down" - I also think I must be lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him on the golf course yesterday. Now this is strange because usually I see him in the supermarket.

Honest really, last time I saw him there he was right in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

Then I'm gonna go home, put ma dancin' suit on, munch me some uppers and freak out to that maaaaaaaaad surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on ma lcd tv .

How cool is that boy?

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
