Quick Hits - A hole-in-one for my 76-year-old uncle!!!

I want to congratulate my Uncle George from Youngstown, Ohio who got his first hole-in-one on Wednesday at the age of 76-years-old.....he had two hip replacement surgeries a few years back but that hasn't slowed him on the golf course...now that is something to be proud of....

The baseball trading deadline is less than two weeks away and the only thing that seems certain is that the Pirates will be trading longtime shortstop Jack Wilson.....with the Buccos trading for shortstop Cesar Izturis it looks like Jack’s days are numbered....hopefully he gets traded to a team that makes the playoffs.....he deserves that.....

With the Yankees seven games back of Boston, it looks like the Bronx headquarters will not be sellers.....

The Yankees supposedly were trying to trade outfielder Bobby Abreu to Arizona for the Diamondbacks star minor leaguer Carlos Gonzalez.....the D-backs said no....

The Pittsburgh Steelers should trade offensive lineman Alan Faneca.....in yesterday’s Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Faneca said that this will be his last season with the Steelers and that even though he will be in camp on-time, he will not be there with “bells and whistles”.....in other words, he is not a happy camper....with a new first year head coach, the Steelers do not need a possible cancer on the team.....I’d unload him now – even if it means getting a mid-round draft pick.....

More proof that Rosie O’Donnell is a “whack job”.....last week she was at some type of event and drew devil horns and a stache on a picture of former co-host Elizabeth Hasselbeck....grow up already Rosie!!!!.....that is something an elementary school brat would do....

Here is a good one – a 20-year-old Syracuse woman left four young girls (the oldest only 6-years-old) who she was watching in order to go pose for nude photos......police say Michelle Rendino was supposed to be watching the girls when she left them alone and went into the woods to have a man take nude photos of her....the oldest girl told police that "Aunt Michelle" went into the woods to take "nasty pictures"......

    Stiles, nice story about the baby sitter. What an idiot. I love how the little kid said she was taking "nasty pictures."
