Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton was scrimmaging with the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury when he caught an inadvertent elbow from Nakia Sanford while going for a rebound. The elbow left him with a broken nose. While your immediate reaction might be to make fun of Stanton for getting his nose broken by a girl or playing with WNBA players instead of the Suns, you should give him a break. If I were mayor of a city with a WNBA team, I would totally go to practice everyday and demand to play in the scrimmages. This would be all I would do. That’s why I would be a one-term mayor, but still. Totally worth it to be able to practice with professional basketball players everyday and not worry about getting dunked on.
The Texas Rangers appear poised to hang on to Yu Darvish.
With Clayton Kershaw out, the Dodgers need to add another ace.
It was bound to happen.
