Bledsoe on Favre, and the “Squatty Body”

Just a couple of things while I’m watching Carlos Silva try to get enough lefties out to save his spot in the rotation…

-Talking to Drew Bledsoe today was awesome. His take on Brett Favre’s difficult decision to hang it up (or not) was interesting becase he so recently made that call himself. Now, clearly Drew is loving his retirement. But as he said, the key was separating himself as a person from himself as a player. And he was able to do that, thus he had something to look forward to upon retirment…and thus he didn’t feel that addiction to the game. Here’s the interview in its entirety.

As a brief aside, when Bledsoe was traded from the Pats to the Bills, he could not have handled it with any more class. After quietly sitting on the bench without complaint while the team he helped build was turned over to a kid (Brady), he was essentially run out of town. Did he complain or rip the fans? Nope. He took out a full page advertisement in both local papers to thank everyone. Class act all the way.

Another couple of hits off Silva…and a balk. Ich.


Did anyone catch Brock talking about “squatty bodies” today? Weird, right? Here it is…


So, since I had never heard the term, I decided to look it up on the source for things of this nature: Urban Dictionary.

1. squatty body – a girl that is short and has a thick, big butt but is otherwise pretty skinny. They wear jeans a lot and they look really good in them.

2. squatty – short and thick; as e.g. having short legs and heavy musculature

Turns out, they also have “hottie with a naughty body,” though I prefer to link to it rather than write it out (as this is a PG blog!).

Brock of course was talking about Colin Cole, who I assume qualifies as the former, and not the latter…

Colin Cole

maybe this pic is more what Brock was talming about…




Silva’s now out of the game. 6 runs in 3 innings. Just awful. Tough for the M’s to deal with – especially on a night when they could have used him stepping up – but the fact that he was THAT bad should make it easier for Don Wakamatsu and Jack Zduriencik to pull the trigger on sending him to the DL or the pen. They gave him a full month to straighten out…at some point he is just killing them. Let’s stay tuned on this one.
