7 Cubs are All Stars

Nobody thought it would be a lucky seven — even the experts wrote that the Cubs “hoped for six” representatives in this year’s all star game as late as this morning. Well all six did and they forgot about one — Aramis Ramirez — the man I consider to be the Cubs MVP, was voted an all star by the players.

Voted by the fans to start: Alfonso Soriano, Kosuke Fukudome, Geovany Soto.
Voted by the players: Ryan Dempster, Kerry Wood, Aramis Ramirez.
Manager selection: Carlos Zambrano

Carlos Marmol has been pitching like an all star until recently and leads the league in holds, but we’ll take seven. Go Cubs!

The Revolute — A Fuel Cell Concept Car

This could be the greatest usage of the online handle I adopted many years ago — revolute. From Trendhunter:

Will somebody please build one of these neat little cars? How much fun would it be to buzz around the neighborhood or bog in the REVOLUTE? The really cool part? It has a clicker that reconfigures the wheelbase depending on how macho you feel. IM’s can be flashed on the side of the “car” too. Harsha Vardhan made the vehicle out of high tech materials, lexan, carbon fiber, etc. The doors roll out and it also work as a display screen. Inside are swivel seats. Pretty cool. Al Gore build this car!
