Ozzie and the Marlins Star in “The Franchise”

The Miami Marlins changed their team name, their uniforms, their stadium and a bunch of players. It makes sense that they are the subject of this season of “The Franchise”, Showtime’s hit show taking you behind the scenes of Major League Baseball.

Guillen is a firebrand that commands your attention, even when he’s not seeking it. He’s a funny guy, says controversial things and is a good manager to boot. Expect something insane from him throughout the course of this series. Here’s a preview:

Love Picks Two Ryder Cup Assistant Captains

The 2012 Ryder Cup is just a few months away. On Wednesday, US team captain Davis Love III officially announced Fred Couples and Mark Hubert would be two of his four assistant captains. Couples and Love were frequent playing partners in the Ryder Cup and other team competitions, while Hubert was an assistant captain at the 2002 Ryder Cup.

“We know Fred’s passion for team events,” said Love. “Playing matches with him, playing World Cups with him was pretty amazing, actually. People see Freddie, he makes it look so easy and he’s got this nice swing and he’s always smiling and waving. But what’s going on in his head, I think, is completely different. He really has a lot of pride in his game.”

Love also had plenty of love for Hubert:

Anderson Silva Wants to Hurt Chael Sonnen

Anthony Davidson’s Huge Crash at Le Mans

Anthony Davidson had a huge crash at Le Mans when he was hit by a lapped car. When you watch the video you’ll probably wonder how either driver survived the crash, but both drivers did.

Davidson described how the accident happened on his website.

“I was almost completely past the car after the apex of the kink. I passed a Corvette and a Ferrari with the pro driver sticker on. They were fighting each other and I just assumed the Ferrari ahead was part of their group and therefore another pro. The car was all the way to the left as you would expect a pro driver to do. It was only when I got right up to the back that I realized it was one of the amateur-stickered cars. But I still wasn’t alarmed, I still felt it was a completely legitimate move and thought he would stay to the left, which it looked like he was doing. I made the apex of the corner, started to brake and I was almost out of the corner when I felt contact on the left rear.”
