Cape Gazette SPORTS & OUTDOORS TUESDAY, JUNE 24- THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 2008 35 FOOTBALL GAME June A California event to raise money and awareness and to benefit breast cancer research is Margarita Wrestling which has do- nated thousands of dollars to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, whose Executive Director Betty Rodriguez described it as an "intriguing approach to fundraising" ][ook ConUnued Erom page 34 we want to save breasts" I want to save the planet also, but I ain't sumo wrestling coach McDowell in a vat of Jack Daniels as a fundraiser. The goal is to raise $100,000, and I say why not dress like seals and swim among the great whites, armed with a bang stick and have celebrity judges decide winners and losers. I mean when does justifying stupid be- haviors, in the name of good causes, just become offensive? CHARACTER ASSASINATION - The Phillies looked good com- ing into the current home stand and promptly bombed the Bean Towners and all was good but you just knew the real test was rolling toward Citizens Bank Sta- dium like a tsunami on a sunny day. Where did all that water go? What's that noise? The Phils not only dropped five in a row to the Red Sox and Angels, both managed by PhiUy cast- aways, but it was the look on their faces like they expected it and who do they turn to for psy- chological sports confidence - Charlie Manuel? That's why I always watch the Phillies on TV B with the sound turned down and watch soccer in high definition. How about a Turk scoring late in extra time then giving the quiet sign to 60000 deflated Croatians? Trust me, you don't want to be in the stadium if that fight breaks out. And the Russian striker gave the same "not a whisper" to the Dutch fans. Eu- ro 2008 is so cool and way better than baseball and really, does the United States ever exhibit that kind of crazy, out-of-control na- tionalism? That's why soccer or futbol is the only sport on "the world stage." It is a beautiful game! when played by great ath- letes. SNIPPETS - Did you ever eat dumb diet stuff for days then fi- naUy bite into a plump meatball and rediscover the taste buds of the tongue? I did and purred so loudly the Siamese rubbed up against my leg. Egg Beaters and no salt or butter? Somebody slap me! Go on now, gift
