Who is Paige Brendel? She’s the new blonde girlfriend of Toronto Blue Jays 3B Brett Lawrie. What the hell is the big deal with Ms. Brendel? Well, she’s a former college soccer player, is an Arizona State broadcast journalism major and cheerleader (still efforting if she’s an ASU cheerleader). Why does all this matter?
Because Lawrie was engaged in the fall, got disengaged from this chick & is now having tattoos removed. Tattoos, you ask? Yeah, well, Lawrie went and had his ex-fiancee’s initials tattooed on his wrist. Oops.
It seems like the first order of business in this Brendel-Lawrie relationship was some tat removal. The removal of Lawrie’s ex-fiancee’s initials. She happens to be Team USA soccer member Sydney Leroux. No biggie.
In other words, we have a major B-list WAG drama building.

Okay, I don’t know that to be true whatsoever, but how else do you explain the sudden stockpiling of greybeards to fill holes...
