Q: Weird baseball terms

Stiletto Jen: Around the horn, Baltimore Chop, brushback, can of corn, choke up, pepper, pickle, infield fly rule, hot stove….. baseball has a ton of weird things! Gimme a few days and I should have the advance terms up in a guide!

Q: There’s Only One October:

Stiletto Jen: This refers to the MLB postseason which dominates most of October. There was a great ad campaign for the postseason that boasts “There’s Only One October.”

Q: Baseball postition illustration

Stiletto Jen: Is it just me or does that just sound naughty? Unfortunately, the answer really isn’t! But we do have a Guide to Baseball Positions. And I do call it, Nine Guys + Nine Positions = Loads of fun.

Q: What is the new Yankees logo for 2009?

It’s actually the patch that will be on the uniforms to commemorate the new stadium.

Q: What is the new Mets logo for 2009?mets-logo-2009

This is another patch, like the Yankees one, that will be on the uniforms to commemorate the new stadium. This one, however, sucks.

Q: Disney baseball movies:

Stiletto Sports: Disney does tend to dominate the sports movies, don’t they? I’ve even made some observations about sports movies and their correlation with Disney. My three faves are The Sandlot (I think that it’s Disney…) The Rookie and Angels in the Outfield. Check them out in my baseball movie guides.

Q: Signed baseball that goes over fence?

Stiletto Jen: The Sandlot. In the Disney film the boys knock a baseball over the fence into the neighbor’s yard with a monster dog. The ball was signed by Babe Ruth. Oops!

Q: Where do baseball players hang out in Ft Myers, Florida

Stiletto Jen: I’m not really sure but I can ask my friends Juliana, Dan and Jason if you really want to know. But,  spring training is over the Red Sox are back in Boston! I’ll try to find out before next year! As for the Pittsburgh Pirates in Bradenton, I’ve seen them many times at Rasher Tierney’s in B’town.

Basketball: NBA All-Stars

A lot of the googling had to do with the sneakers from the All-Star game. People were looking to know the hottest kicks from the East and the West and the limited player editions put out for the games. Here are the lists that I made during All-Star Weekend to give a rundown of the past, present and future of the hottest sneakers on the court.

Q: What were the shoes that J.R. Smith wore in the 2009 dunk competition”

Stiletto Jen: Nike Zoom Flight Clubs. They were baby blue!

Q: What are KrytoNate Flightclubs?

Stiletto Jen: Actually, they are Nike Foamposite Lites, not Flightclubs. In the 2009 All-Star Game Slam Dunk Contest, Nate Robinson took on the alter-ego of KryptoNate to bring down SuperMan Dwight Howard. Nike produced a Player Exclusive Edition of the Foamposite sneakers called the KryptoNates especially for the event. They are lime green and HOT! You can seem at The 2009 NBA All Star Flight Club of Sneakers

Stiletto Jen:Yup!  They are a special limited edition collection made in honor of the late Kate Yow to help support Breast Cancer research. Michael Cooper wore them in the Skills Challenge.

hyperpink1Q: What sneaker team is Rashard Lewis on?

Stiletto Jen: Um….is that supposed to mean something? I would love to be on a sneaker team! Here’s what I have: Rashard Lewis plays for the team: Orlando Magic. Or he plays for the Nike team because he rocks the Hyperdunks.

Q: Who is basketball player East Coast NBA?

Stiletto Jen: Well that’s a bit vague, don’t you think! I mean, there are only like 15 Eastern Conference teams full of players to choose from.  Technically I guess only about 7 of those would really be “East Coast.”

A few guesses:

  • Boston: Kevin Garnet, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen
  • Miami: Dwayne Wade
  • Cleveland: LeBron James

Or….maybe a player from the 2009 East Coast All-Star Game Roster?

Q: What is the oh oh oh oh oh oh basketball theme?

heart-basketball1Stiletto Jen: I have absolutely no idea what this person was trying to hum on google but I would love to know!

I did find a really cool performance of “Roundball Rock” which is pretty much the NBA theme song. It’s at least as recognizable  as the NCAA March Madness on CBS theme! This video shows the original  composer, John Tesh, talking about the unique way he came up with the song and features a A life performance of Roundball Rock with an orchestra. Really Cool!

Funny Googles and Facts

Q: Soundtrack Stiletto 2002

Stiletto Jen: I would love my own soundtrack! As far as I know there were none in 2002. The movie Stiletto came out in 1969 and their song was “Sugar in the Rain.” In 2001, there was a movie called The Stiletto Dance.

Q: What were the sneakers that Will wore in Fresh Prince of Bel Air?

fresh-prince-of-bel-air-sneakersStiletto Jen: Actually, the really interesting thing isn’t what he used to rock on his feet—it’s what fans of the show will get to start rocking come May 17th. Puma has been in the works to release a collection dedicated to Will’s Fresh Prince style. There are two different collections: the brightly colored flamboyant “West Philly” and the classy upscale gold “Bel-Air.”

Puma X–The Fresh Prince of Bel Air Collection

On the show, Will tended to wear the hottest and newest Jordans like the Infrared VI, Cardinal V, Shadow X, All Star XIs and the White/True Red IXs.  You can even see the Air Jordan V’s during the opening credits of the show when Will is spinning in the chair.

And a few other of my fave googled names:  Joey McIntyre, David Cook, B.J. Armstrong, Daughtry pics

Anyone who knows me, knows that I ADORE Cook, Daughtry and Armstrong and have made it my mission to spread their names far and wide. And Joey was my first love. I will even admit that I’ve now seen him perform four different times over the years, I think. NKOTB concert in like ’89, Sunfest in college, at DWTS The Tour a few years ago—and another time too.

Q: Superest game in the world!

Stiletto Jen: Beer Pong.


Q: First sport that a National Anthem was song at

Stiletto Jen: Baseball. Officially during the seventh-inning stretch of the 1918 World Series. Unofficially, historians claim that it was performed during the 1897 at opening day ceremonies in Philadelphia.

In 1898, they started playing “The Star Spangled Banner” at the Polo Grounds in New York City.

It was during World War II, that the anthem was performed at the start of every baseball game.

Q: Sullenburger Titanic

Stiletto Jen: Well……. that’s not very accurate. Captain Chelsey B. Sullenburger was the pilot that saved the lives of everyone when the plane when down in The Miracle on the Hudson in January. The Titanic is a boat that hit an iceberg and sank. But yes, there have been many inferences comparing the two events.

Q: Ghost baseball crying movie?

Stiletto Jen: Okay, I’m going to have to guess on this one. Ghost is a movie staring Demi Moore, Patrick Swayze and Whoppi Goldberg but it has nothing to do with baseball at all. The baseball movie with the reference “there’s no crying in baseball” is A League of Their Own but there are no ghosts.

There is a ghost baseball movie that makes people cry. It’s called Field of Dreams.

NASCAR Mullet Spotting

Stiletto Jen: Ah yes, the great spectator game of Mullet Spotting. Especially fabulous at NASCAR and Indy Car event since they still have a “redneck” connotation–despite years of trying to break down the stereotype and incorporate actual in-style fashion. However, Mullets tend to be a bit evasive and do not like people looking at them. They also get very violent when you take pictures. All of this adds to the game of Mullet Spotting.
