– A downtown Philadelphia brewery called “Nodding Head” has decided to naming their latest beer creation after Penguins’ F Sidney Crosby. The ale has been called “Crosby’s Tears,” and below is the write-up seen on the brewery’s menu taking some shots at the first pick of the 2005 NHL Draft:
STRONG ALE …WHINE-LIKE IN “HONOR” OF ITS NAMESAKE… ORANGE HUED LIKE THE TEAM THAT SENT HIM HOME FOR THE SUMMER… THE PERFECT COMPLEMENT TO A PLAYOFF RUN
The new ale will cost $6.50.
– The Patriots have signed RB Joseph Addai. Addai visited the Patriots last month, but didn’t receive much interest outside of them. Addai is expected to be a third-down back, while Stevan Ridley does early-down work and 2011 2nd-round pick Shane Vereen and Danny Woodhead serve as change-of-pace options.
– The Brewers have placed SS Alex Gonzalez (right knee) and OF Carlos Gomez (hamstring strain) on the 15-day DL. Gonzalez suffered the injury Saturday while sliding into second base on a stolen base attempt. The Brewers are waiting until the swelling subsides to put him through an MRI, but he’s already expected to be out for longer than the minimum stay.
– WWE developmental talent Brian McGhee, who appears as DT Porter for Florida Championship Wrestling, denied posting a message on Facebook crying for help due to alleged mistreatment from camp officials. He claimed on the account that it was hacked. The hacker’s statement reads:
“Guys, I don’t know how much longer I can handle this. Every day is a constant struggle to keep my sanity. I love wrestling and it’s all I ever wanted to do. Already going crazy since I’ve been for like ten months now, but it gets worse. Every day a trainer goes out of his way to rib or disrespect me in front of the boys because I’ve been out so long. I can’t clear myself. I wanna wrestle more than anything, but I don’t even know who I am anymore. It’s so fucking hard. I just feel it just building inside of me and I don’t know how much longer I can contain it. I have daydreams of just fucking everyone up on some real shit. I’m not a kid. I’m a fucking man. But what do you do when the people in charge of helping you get to the main roster are the ones making your life the hardest. I’ve been drinking almost every day. It’s to the point to where I keep Vodka and Gin in my trunk. Help me!”
