I appreciate everyone reading my blog….i will be moving to blogspot because it’s a little better
here’s the link:
I recently did not get an opportunity to interview Yankees boss Hank “the tank” Steinbrenner, but if I did i think this is how it would go.
Hi Hank, thanks for letting me interview you
– I promise this will be worth it….the first thing I want to know are your thoughts on this past season
– Well if Bud Selig and those other nimrods in the MLB offices were smart, they would get rid of the divisions and just give the World Championship to the team with the highest payroll. They also need to get to this century and make everybody use a DH. They should know that our pitchers aren’t taught how to run the bases. When Bud is done, I hope that I am elected commissioner so I can right the wrongs.
-Ok Hank, good luck with that….what was your favorite part of this year?
– You honestly think you are going to get all of the American and National League All-stars on one team?
– No, stupid, that’s impossible….The AL guys would be in the majors and the NL guys would start in the minors….maybe if they played baseball like it was this century they could get a shot…but until then, the only field they will see is the one in Scranton.
– You really are just like people say aren’t you?
– Well this has been a waste of my time Hank…thanks for nothing
I must turn to the gridiron for comfort. Here are my picks for the division and wildcard winners
AFC EAST- Buffalo Bills- THATS RIGHT BILLS FANS, THIS YEAR IS THE YEAR!!!! Tom Brady is hurt,
the Jets are the most overrated team in football (more on that later). The Bills have a revamped defense, one of the best running backs in the league and a very smart quarterback who is not named J.P Losman.
James Hardy will prove to be a key red zone threat and Lee Evans will show that he truly is a top-notch receiver.
AFC North- Pittsburgh Steelers- Big Ben and Co. have been there before and are in a weak division…nuff’ said.
AFC South- Indianapolis Colts- Yes, they are struggling. Yes, Bob Sanders is hurt, but Center Jeff Saturday will return soon and as long as Peyton Manning is under center, the Colts will take a weaker than expected AFC South.
AFC West- Denver Broncos- This will be not be a walk in the park. The Charges gave the Broncos a run for their money in week 2 and they will do the same for the rest of the year.
AFC Wild Card- Patriots and Chargers- The Patriots were never a one dimensional team and all they know is winning (other than the last Superbowl). Quarterback Matt Cassell does not have to put out a Brady-like effort in order for this team to succeed. The Chargers missed the Superbowl by one game last year. With an overall weak AFC, Phillip Rivers and L.T should be able to lead their team to the playoffs.
NFC East- Cowboys- They have an explosive offense and a pretty solid defense (other thanthat Monday against the Eagles) Don’t worry Giants fans I haven’t counted you guys out yet.
NFC North- Green Bay Packers- Aaron Rodgers is playing like he has something to prove. Oh, wait, he does. He has shown (so far) that he is a smart quarterback with a lot of confidence. It helps that they are in a terrible division.
NFC South- Carolina Panthers- They are playing solid defense but they will face stiff competition from the Buccaneers. Their entire season rests on the arm and leadership of Jake Delhomme. If he gets injured, give the division to the Bucs.
NFC West- This division is barely worth writing about. The Matt Leinart-less Arizona Cardinals will roll with the division. I honestly don’t think they will lose a divisional game.
NFC Wild Card- Giants and Eagles- The Giants now know how to win and it may be ugly at times, but they will find a way to get into the playoffs. The Eagles have a high powered offense and a defense good enough to help them win games. Donovan McNabb looks even stronger and healthier than he did four years ago.
Here is my Gutsy (dumb) (wishfull thinking) (Chris Berman 49ers Bills) (you gotta believe) pick-
Bills defeat Packers 24-17
Here’s what will probably happen
Cowboys beat the Patriots 41-27
Mike D’ Antoni has officially signed with the Knicks for a 4 year 24 million dollar deal. I personally think he is nuts for taking the job and this proves that he is all about the money. If he wanted to contend for a championship he would have went to the Bulls who have a perfect team for the run and gun offense that he runs. I would have loved to see Tyrus Thomas and Ben Gordon in his system, but instead the world will now get to see Eddie Curry huff and puff his way down the floor and Nate Robinson try to pretend that he is Steve Nash. It ain’t gonna work and if the Knickerbockers win a championship in the next 5 years I will eat my own sock.
The Yankees were rained out today but it may actually be a blessing in disguise. The Yankees need a rest after playing some hard games against the Indians and the Tigers. The big help is that the Bombers can now switch up the rotation they way they want it to be. Pettitte is scheduled to pitch on Monday, with Chein Ming-Wang following him up on Tuesday against the Rays. Mussina will most likely be after Wang. The Mets are the next opponent and it looks like Darrell Rasner (who has been pitching outstanding baseball) will open up the series for the Yanks this Friday. Look for my preview of the Subway Series later in the week.
