Quick Hits: Now with Warm Puppies and Cold Bats

Is That A Puppy In Your Pocket...?
But as far as I can remember, the kit never contained puppies. Apparently it should have: Yahoo News: Lost boy kept warm by puppies, officials say
The New York Yankees' are paying Alex Rodriguez $275 million dollars to play baseball. To put that in perspective, with that kind of cash he could cover the entire city budget for the town of Burlington, Iowa (pop. 25,564) for five years and still have over $10 million dollars leftover for himself.
Despite his gawdy career hitting numbers, ( BA: .300, HR: 647, RBI: 1950 ), he hit a slump of epic proportions in the playoffs this year and found himself riding the pine as the Yankees got handed their hats and sent home. But did that stop A-Rod from playing? Hell no! If he couldn't hit baseballs, he was certainly going to hit on chicks and that is exactly what he did, DURING THE GAME!
I guess he found the game as uninteresting as the rest of New York and decided to try and get the phone number of Australian bikini model and swim suit designer Kyna Treacy who was sitting in the stands near the dug out. (Am I the only one with Paradise by the Dashboard Lights playing in their head right now?)
I know what I would do if I was the Yankee's manager, I'd replace my first base coach with a hot chick who stripped down to a bikini and waved at A-Rod every time he came to bat. For $275 million dollars, I'd need to do everything I could to get A-Rod's head (and bat) back in the game.
