QB Tony Romo and beauty pageant queen Candice Crawford tied the knot over the long weekend.

Dont worry. We know what youre thinking OMGZ SHAKING & CRYINGWHAT WAZIT LIEK?

Frankly who cares? Were more interested in what people get a million dollar quarterback and a beauty queen.

Answers: Stuff from Macys and Crate&Barrel.

Were assuming Tony and Candice were just trying to be nice and not asking for super expensive stuff. And there have been odder things put on wedding registries. My own cousin put a bicycle on his reg cause my familys classy like that.

But if were looking at the Money Person Earns to Store Value ratio, Tony wanting stuff from C&B would be the equivalent of me asking for stuff from Good Will or having the fam dumpster dive for gifts.

Anything people get them from Macys or C&B is going to be nothing nearly as nice as what is probably already in their mega-mansion.

But seriously, what do you get an NFL start and a beauty queen? They probably own everything and what they dont they can easily buy in a heartbeat.

We have some ideas.

1. A mirror. Because when youre that good looking theres no such thing as too many mirrors.

2. Jessica Simpsons new CD.

Awkward.

3. A GPS system. Because when youre that rich its easy to get lost in your vast estate.

If nothing else we know one thing Romo wouldnt get for his wedding a new NFL CBA.

Boom!

First impressions: Bradley Jr.'s hit streak comes to an end

BOSTON - First impressions from the Red Sox' 8-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies:

 

Just when you think Clay Buchholz may be close to figuring some things out, you realize he hasn't.

The night began well for Buchholz, who retired the first nine hitters he faced, marking the first time since April 18 that he had the opposition scoreless through the first three innings.

But then Buchholz allowed a single and a two-run homers in the fourth. And then did it again in the fifth. And then again in that same inning. That's been the big tease all season -- a few innings of dominance, more than wiped out by big hits with men on base.

He's got a 6.35 ERA. It's hard to find a reason why he should make his next start.

 

You can't say that Jackie Bradley Jr. didn't go down swinging.

He swung at the second pitch of the first inning and hit to the warning track in right, where it was caught.

After a weak comebacker in the third, Bradley crushed a pitch to the center field wall, close to 400 feet. That, too, was caught.

In his final at-bat, with the crowd on its feet in anticipation, Bradley swung at the first pitch and rolled out to second base.

It was nice -- and plenty of fun -- while it lasted.

Now, the attention focuses on Xander Bogaerts, who has his own streak going at 19 games.

 

David Ortiz has had a nice month this week.

Ortiz was at it again Thursday, slamming a two-run homer into the home bullpen in the first, then doubling off The Wall in the fourth.

He finished the night 2-for-5, but for the homestand was 10-for-23. Of those 10 hits, eight were for extra bases -- six doubles and two homers -- and he knocked in 11 runs in six games.

Also, for the first time in his career, Ortiz has knocked in multiple runs in four straight games.

 

Heath Hembree continues to be an important part of the bullpen.

The Red Sox don't necessarily have a designated long man, but Hembree is the closest thing they have to one.

He came in in the sixth and turned in three innings in which he allowed just one run -- and that one was unearned.

This marked the ninth time in 12 appearances this season that Hembree has pitched more than an inning.
