    I checked the first two pages of Anything Goes and Sports and News, and I didn't find it, so I thought it was worth a mention ...

    I wonder if he has one of those Hover-Rounds. He's got to be getting up there ...

    I will never forget that no-hitter he had at the LLWS -- I was there. The local team was there, but weren't playing that day so I sat in on the game, called the desk as soon as it was over to get some extra space for a sidebar....and then a few days later we find out it was all a sham.

    He's still married to a woman older than I am, though.

    I'm not the biggest baseball guy, but wasn't his performance still pretty good for his age?

    He's married to sportschick, I think.

    (I passed on it at first, but this was just waiting to be hammered over the left-field fence.)

    He was amazing that day. That ball was going in there so fast, I would have been crying if it were me. Course I have no baseball skills whatsoever, but that's just me.

    Just looked up my story on the game -- he had 16 Ks that day.
    He had about 15 appearances that summer and didn't give up a run. I'd say that's good no matter what...

    As a man who was on the younger end of one of those May-December romances (appropriate since my b-day really is in may and my ex's was the day after christmas), I gotta say it makes me smile every time someone jokes with SC about that.

    Yeah. Whose gonna draft that guy? He's got maybe 1-2 years in the NBA till retirement.

    What's funny is that he looks just as old as she is. Could it be that Danny Almonte was actually 23 when he pitched in the LLWS?
