I was perusing Dodgers.com this afternoon when I checked out the star-studded lineup for the team's annual Hollywood Stars game. And who is playing this year? The Clippers' Shaun Livingston. Sean was last seen busting his knee in one of the most gruesome sports injuries ever. Now he'll be gracing the Dodger Stadium field for a friendly game with the likes of James Van Der Beek and Carlos Mencia. This revelation must be both a great sign and a horrifying moment all at the same time. It's great that Livingston is well enough along in his comeback to play. But is this meaningless game with the risk?
So with his career in jeopardy, what makes Shaun think playing in the Hollywood Stars game is a good idea? Elgin Baylor and Mike Dunleavy will surely be holding their breaths during the festivities on Saturday. If I were Livingston I'd stay away from Mayor Villaraigosa. After the spanking he got from The New Yorker last month, you know he'll be looking to blow off some steam. Shaun, just watch out for Villaraigosa trying to break up a double-play.
