Drunk Driving With The Stars

For Hines’ next reality show, he ought to consider “Cash Cab.”

Pittsburgh Steelers and former UGA receiver Hines Ward was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol early Saturday on Buford Highway in DeKalb County.

According to DeKalb police, Ward was stopped about 2:30 a.m. on Buford Highway near Briarwood Road after an officer noticed his Aston Martin failing to maintain lane and hitting a curb.

Ward failed a field sobriety test, and refused to take a breathalyzer test. He told officers he been at a downtown club, and had had two drinks.

According to police, a passenger in Ward’s car had not been drinking, and he was allowed to drive the car instead of it being impounded.

Ward, who police said was cooperative during the traffic stop, was taken to the DeKalb County Jail.

DeKalb County Jail records indicate that Ward, 35, was booked into the jail at 3:41 a.m, and later released on $1,000 bond.

At least he didn’t hit anyone because the penalty for bind-siding with a car is a little different than blind-siding someone on the gridiron.

Then again, this is the American legal system we’re talking about so who knows?

Captain 3000

Looks like Jeter wanted to get started right away on Hit #4000.

Derek Jeter’s bid for one of baseball’s most hallowed milestones, a mark never reached by other New York Yankees’ greats, is complete.

Mobbed by his pinstriped pals after the ball sailed into the left-field seats, showered by ovations from his fans, Derek Jeter stood alone – the first Yankees player to 3,000 hits.

His first home run at Yankee Stadium this year, too.

A fitting crown for the captain.

With a swift swing of his shiny black bat, Jeter jolted himself into historic company, homering off Tampa Bay ace David Price in the third inning Saturday. He joined former teammate Wade Boggs as the only players to do it with a home run.

Say what you want about The Captain, but the guy knows how to rise to the occasion. I’m betting A-Rod’s 3000th hit will come in the 8th inning of a 10-0 blowout. (Doesn’t matter if the Yankees are up or down by 10 runs.)

And on the other end of the spectrum, Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee has hit the first home run of his career.

The fun thing about Cliff Lee is that he takes as much pride in his hitting as his pitching. And yesterday, he became the first Phillies pitcher since Chan Ho Park in 2009 to hit a home run. Lee blasted a pitch to right center field, sending it 397 feet and giving the Phillies a 1-0 lead in the third inning. It was the first home run of Lee’s career.
