The teen pop star of the aptly-named band the “Jonas Brothers” dressed out in a Texas Rangers uniform on Saturday afternoon before the Rangers faced the Kansas City Royals.

Jonas took batting practice with the team, and caught some fly balls when the Rangers hit before the game. One of the elder brothers, Joe Jonas, was present also, but a Rangers hat was all he saw fit to wear.

I haven’t seen any scouting reports on Jonas just yet, but Rangers starting pitcher C. J. Wilson was impressed.

Let’s just say John Daly isn’t the most behaved and well-kept golfer on the PGA Tour. He’s had some public image problems, i.e. passing out drunk at a Hooters restaurant, but also has a new show coming out on the golf channel.

There’s also this eye-popping interview.

Daly’s PGA Tour discipline file has been released, and sportswriters around the country have had their chance to take a shot at him.

One writer in particular, Florida-Times-Union golf writer Garry Smits, drove Daly to a tweeting-frenzy that included tweets containing the writer’s phone number. He released three tweets about an article Smits had written criticizing Daly’s behavior as explained in his disciplinary file, all which have since been deleted from his account.

One tweet from Daly read, “here’s the JERK who writes NON-NEWS article on debut of my show — CALL & FLOOD his line & let’s tell him how WE feel”.

Daly has approximately 46,000 followers on Twitter, and while that is a respectable number, how many people actually cared?

The reason you follow John Daly on Twitter is because of his rash personality, as shown last night, not because you’re his “fan”. Had teen pop singer Justin Bieber posted a tweet saying to “Call & Flood” his phone line, you can be sure Smits would have received thousands of phone calls within the next minute.

But we’re talking John Daly, not exactly the most likeable “athlete” in the world. Or physically fit.
