Slow News Day = Kemp / Rihanna Tidbits

I am still comatose from that drubbing last night, our second consecutive 11-run beating by a sorry NL Central team.

But in other news, the Hindustan Times reports the shocker that Matt Kemp thinks Rihanna is a fun person to be around:

Rihanna's new boyfriend and baseball player Matt Kemp is completely smitten by the singer and insists he loves to be around her.

"That's my girl! She's just a fun person. I love to be around her. She's definitely a great person in my life, and I'm happy I'm with her," usmagazine.com quoted Kemp as saying.

Kemp may or may not be referring to his girlfriend's shopping purchases:

Rihanna was recently spotted at a Paris store apparently shopping for sex toys.

Sporting a trench coat, shades and boots, the Umbrella singer was seen browsing racks of lingerie before she burst out laughing when handed a pink sex toy, reports The News of the World.

However, Rihanna - who was in Paris on her European tour - disappeared amidst her assistants lest she be seen making a purchase.

Rihanna always the shittiest haircuts. I can't get past that.

On second thought, I wouldn't want to get you guys uninvited from the press box.

Maybe a Cafepress thing.

Dusty Baker said...

Speaking of keeping calm and carrying on, anyone following UK elections happening right now? BBC has live feed.

I'll check the Hindustan Times for coverage, too.

Maybe we need dueling "Blame Frank" and "Blame Jamie" shirts and see which ones sell more.

@Josh

Can you put an "ie" after "Frank" so I can use it as a reference to my dog, Frankie?

Dusty Baker said...

Heh...."hung Parliament"

I'm a Rump Parliament man myself, but I'm not one to judge.
