Preparing For Baseball Season

Written by Rudy on March 22, 2011 - 11:35 am -

The Rudy Report would like to deny rumors that Rudy will be running for President, because that position is underpaid anyways, so why bother, today on "International Goof Off Day." Everybody is looking forward to the upcoming baseball season. The Rudy Report will be supporting the New York Yankees, as always. Good news is also that the gay community is getting excited about hunks in pinstripes, hoping to land a good catch...

Catch 1_1

Ferrari driver Alonso is the best paid athlete in Formula One racing with an annual salary of 28 million Euros, followed by Michael Schumacher who makes 18 million. March Madness took a break.... unless you count women's "basketball", which doesn't count. And, in the NBA, the Knicks, lost against Boston.

The Rudy Report says Happy Birthday to Juan Uribe, Tom Poti, Joey Porter, Marcus Camby, and Italian cycling legend Mario "Cipo" Cipollini. On this day in 1894, the first ever playoff game for the Stanley Cup started.

Leading By Example

Written by Rudy on March 21, 2011 - 11:16 am -

While there are people out there that try to make the world a better place one step at a time, the Rudy Report is making all steps at the same time every day, thereby saving some time and focusing on the big picture, like today on "National Chocolate Caramel Day." There are good leaders and there are bad leaders in this world. Rudy always comments, but never judges (okay, fine, maybe sometimes). In any case, teen heartthrob Justin Bieber may turn out to be a strong leader someday, but he has to work on his greeting...

Greeting_1

Manchester United will take on Chelsea FC in the Champions League quarterfinals, while Tottenham will face Real Madrid. The other two games will be Inter Milan vs. Schalke, and Barcelona vs. Donezk. Meanwhile, Chelsea is interested in signing Madrid defender Ramos for $50 million. In the Premier League, Chelsea, Liverpool, and ManU won their games, while Arsenal had a tie against West Brom. In the NBA, the Knicks lost against Milwaukee. In the NHL, the Rangers beat Pittsburgh 5-2 on the road. And, in the NCAA men's basketball tournament, Marquette and Richmond are the surprises so far. Number 1 seed Pittsburgh got eliminated by Butler.

The Rudy Report says Happy Birthday to Adrian "Purple Jesus" Peterson, Ryan Callahan, Ronald Koeman, Lothar Matthaeus, and Iranian soccer legend Ali Daei. On this day in 1857, an earthquake in Tokyo killed over 100,000 people. Those are the times when you hope that history won't ever repeat itself. If you're looking for a joke here, you won't find it... Have a great week, there is no new Dear Rudy right now, but learn something about computers that you did not know for sure in the Random Fact section!

Internal Affairs

Written by Rudy on March 18, 2011 - 9:00 am -

A new survey has found that 62.4% of readers would prefer reading the Rudy Report over moving to Fukushima in Japan, which is both wise and nice, today on "National Awkward Moments Day." Obviously, nobody is talking about Wikileaks anymore, and everyone is still talking about the Rudy Report. Why? Well, because we actually keep providing new information to you every day. For example, who knew that there would be a new power couple in the White House? I'm not suggesting anything, but it looks like Bill Clinton did it again...

Affairs_1

There was March Madness all over the place, but no need to post results yet. Only winners will get coverage. But there were certainly some surprises!

The Rudy Report says Happy Birthday to Fabian Cancellara, Timo Glock, Willy Sagnol, Scott Podsednik, Brian Griese, and Croatian tennis hero Lovro Zovko.

Art History Lesson

Written by Rudy on March 17, 2011 - 7:58 am -

This is another one of these typical Rudy Report Thursday editions that you have gotten used to, especially on Thursdays, which is when they usually come out, like today on "National Rudy Report Appreciation Day." As you know, Rudy loves art. Therefore, all of you must love art as well. Today, we are taking a look at something very historic. The world's first ever facepalm...

Facepalm 1_1

Renewed political clashes in the streets of Bahrain have virtually eliminated the country's chance of hosting a Formula One race this year. The New York Yankees payroll could fall below $200 million for the first time since 2007. And, in the UEFA Champions League, there were no surprises today: Real Madrid beat Lyon, and Chelsea advanced against Copenhagen.

The Rudy Report says Happy Birthday to Edin Dzeko, Aaron Baddeley, Danny Ainge, and Uruguayan soccer legend Alvaro Recoba. On this day in 1845, the rubber band was patented.

This is the 1,102nd edition of the Rudy Report and there is no meltdown in sight as we continue to deliver the best report in the world, even to contaminated areas, today on "National Lips Appreciation Day." Anyways, just in case you don't find a partner on eHarmony or when your baby is traveling, there is no need to make a sad face. No! Several products have come on the market that function as a genuine, sometimes less annoying, replacements, like this one right here...

Replacement_1

Dwight Howard may be traded to the Los Angeles Lakers either next season or in two years. The Rudy Report endorses Duke as the team that will go on to win the NCAA men's basketball tournament. There are bigger favorites, but Duke will do it. In the UEFA Champions League, Bayern Munich suffered a devastating loss at home against Inter Milan. They got eliminated in the last minute. The Italians probably cheated... Manchester United beat Marseille to advance to the quarterfinals. In the NBA, the Knicks lost against Indiana. And, in the NHL, the Rangers beat the Islanders 6-3.

The Rudy Report says Happy Birthday to Curtis Granderson, Toney Douglas (yes, that's no spelling error, unless his parents made one), Blake Griffin, Todd Heap, Duane Sutter, and British soccer sensation Theo Walcott. On this day in 1872, the first FA Cup final took place with the Wanderers Royal Engineers beating Bolton 1-0.
