Beer, Bratwurst, Baseball, and Belvederes: Tailgate Party Madness With…

Last year, Belvedere Adrian brought two vehicles from his fleet of old Plymouths, plus his vintage Serro Scotty trailer, to a tailgate party before an Oakland Athletics game, and a good time was had by all. Last weekend, however, we figured we needed more Belvederes, so Adrian brought five of his favorite B-bodies,… » 4/25/08 5:20pm 4/25/08 5:20pm

The promotion has a Toyota Tundra perched in the outfield. The deal is if a player smacks the Tundra with a home run, it will be given away to a lucky fan. The average… » 3/27/08 5:30pm 3/27/08 5:30pm

Tony La Russa Not Convincing in Field Sobriety Tests


Both Jalopnik and sister site Deadspin covered news of Cardinals manager Tony La Russa being a sleepy drunk driver back in March, but now we can see the video evidence. On November 28th, prosecutors in the case finally released the video from the cruiser and booking proceedings. Frankly, we're surprised that Mr. La… » 12/05/07 5:45pm 12/05/07 5:45pm

SEMA 2007: Chevrolet Major League Baseball Silverado 1500 Lets You Look…

Oh look, it's another Chevy Silverado here at SEMA. This one's got a baseball paint theme incorporating every major league team logo just in time to celebrate the time of the season when only two teams are able to continue to play ball.

Really Short Commute: Yankees Datsun Bullpen Car!

The well-heeled New York Yankees fan might choose to drive a pinstriped Rolls-Royce, but what if you don't got more louie than Phillip Rizzuto, yet still want to show off your pride that Steinbrenner's warriors are still hanging on in the playoffs?

BOOOO! Phillies Fan Passes Out On Audi Gas Pedal! BOOOO!


So you've taken yourself out to the ball game and spent nine long innings boo, boo, booing for the home team, but instead of peanuts and Cracker Jack you've bought 19 cold foamers (the better to wash down that pint of Granddad you smuggled past stadium security). Whoa, little too much buzz! Well, better stagger out… » 3/30/07 5:45pm 3/30/07 5:45pm

DUI Day Afternoon: Now It's Tony La Russa's Turn!

We're just overwhelmed by the drunk-driving stories today, folks. Now it's time for multi-World-Series-winning baseball manager Tony La Russa to pose for grainy mugshots and mutter not-quite-apologies at the inevitable press conference.

The Detroit Tigers Lose The World Series, But David Eckstein Wins A…

Yeah, it's no surprise to most that I'd be a bit upset over the outcome of the World Series — that should be obvious to even the most casual observer of this site or, ya know, others. Still, I'm proud of my little Tiger team that could — they went farther than anyone expected. But, while watching the post-game, I did… » 10/28/06 1:50am 10/28/06 1:50am
