Transactions.....


Was it me, or were there more Pittsburg fans at the Meadowlands last Sunday than Jets fans?

I'm glad the Yankees kept Kevin Long as their hitting coach. A bunch of the Pinstripers credit this guy to no end.

Seriously, has anyone told Stephen A. Smith on ESPN that he can't speak English? I mean, listen to the man. If you can.

I'm not really a big fan of their fans, but Clemson really does have one of the coolest logos in college sports.

There were of a bunch of men to choose from this week...but the coveted AND A PLAYER TO BE NAMED LATER Man of the Week award goes to....Antrel Rolle of the Cards. A bit of a disappointment since he was taken 8th in the 2005 draft, he went all loco this week, getting 3 interceptions, returning two to the house. Congratulations, Antrel.

G4s Ninja Warrior is what the Olympics should be....seriously, the best show on TV.

I really think Bryant Young on San Francisco is one of the most underated player in football. 3-4 or 4-3, end or tackle, he's done nothing but produce. This year, at 35, playing at the end postion in a 3-4 defense, (on a crap team) he has 6.5 sacks, 2 passes defensed (as a DE!) and a forced fumble. A man.

And congratulations to professional sportswriter Stewart Mandel of Cnnsi.com. Today, he picked Boston College to appear in the Champs Sports Bowl on December 28th seeded as the ACC number 4 seed. Only problem is since Boston College has earned its way to the ACC title game, the worst it could be seeded is 2nd. Way to go professional sportswriter Stew!!!

My favorite nickname for Stephen A Smith is: Sreamin' A. Smith. It is so perfect for him

I may be biased as a Pats fan, but Don't forget Randy Moss. I was skeptical of him coming to New England and how he would fit in with the "No I in TEAM" philosophy there. But I am happy to say that I am pleasantly surprised by the amount of class he has shown this year. I withheld comment until after ten games were in the books because I wanted to give him a decent chance to F up and let his trademark greed and pride surface. I'm pleased to see that it hasn't. He may be "The Other 81", but he scored four TDs on Sunday, too. He has been a class act all season, and while I wouldn't call him underrated (a la Wes Welker), he deserves a big pat on the back as well. (No pun intended.)

Yikes. Stew Mandel was one of my j-school classmates. He was your standard Type A obsessive sports nerd, so I'm sure he'll give himself 18 lashings over that flub.

Seriously. You know the guy? Could he get me an interview?
