Blown Call on Slide Lets Mets Escape Sweep

What would have been a four game sweep over the Mets by the San Francisco Giants was blown by a missed call by home plate umpire Phil Cuzzi.

A critical play at home was shown by television replays to be a clear call that should have given the Giants the game but instead, the game was handed to the Mets.

If called properly that would have been Met’s closer Francisco Rodriguez’s fifth blown save and the fourth straight loss to the Giants! Honestly, for saving Rodriguez from the embarrassment and the Mets from that bad of a sweep, who could blame the ump? Sometimes your heart just reaches out for the underdog.

After 10 innings, the Mets were more than happy to take their 4-3 victory over the Giants.

Waitress Turned BabyMama in a One Night Stand with Ronaldo

Story has it that Cristiano Ronaldo’s charm got him into quite a bit of trouble on is last visit to LA. His one night stand with an unnamed American waitress turned the soccer hottie to a soccer daddy.

After using his foreigner routine of pretending to know little English to lure the waitress into bed, and with absolutely no plans of ever seeing her again, it was safe to say that this was quite the bump is Ronaldo’s slick plan.

But don’t worry Ronaldo fans, Crissy has given his baby momma £10million to keep her mouth shut and plans on raising the baby by himself. In fact, he doesn’t even want to tell Ronaldo Jr. who his mother is until he turns 18! Isn’t he just the sweetest?
