Good bye Giants Stadium.
You stay classy, Brian Urlacher.
OK, how is a cold weather Super Bowl a bad idea? Oh, boo hoo, it's cold. Waaaaah. Pardon me, but I though football players were tough guys, guys who prided them selves on being withstand brutal beating and being battle-tested warriors. And boo hoo, sports media guys might have to use their access to the Super Bowl in a colds stadium. Awwww, rats.
Listen, football is a harsh game, meant for mud, not Astroturf. meant to be played outside, not in some ridiculous dome. And it was certainly meant to be played in the cold. If guys like Santonio Holmes are going to pout, ignore the massive ducats they earn for playing this game and is upset he can't spend the evening before the game on the beach, more's the better. Football players are not supposed to be playing the game in perfect conditions, and it should be embarrassed that they would complain if they don't. Did Dick Butkas complain about it being cold in Chicago. Did Bart Starr nag that it snowed in Green Bay? Fer chrissakes, no. because they are football players. As Joe Delessio wrote in New York Magazine the other day, "As for the wusses among the other owners? They're free to vote for either Tampa or Miami when the host city is selected on May 25." Amen.
What do you say? Can the Redskins trade Albert Haynesworth before training camp. Maybe some team does want to take on a huge contract belonging to a malcontent, because yes, he is a very good player. But can't see there would be many of them. Maybe the Texans?
Maybe a ton of teams would want Roy Oswalt should/when the Astros trade him. And MLB Trade Rumors lists a few. Out of the few, the team that makes the most sense for him is in Arlington. Oswalt wants to remain in the south, and he would fit very well in the Rangers rotation. The Rangers have the bats, and they are close on having a good rotation. Oswalt would give them that.
Seems like the Cavaliers are doing exactly what LeBron is telling them to do.
I know its only May, but man. The Yankees seemed to get old fast.
That said, could we stop with the stupid "What the Yankees passed on with Johan Santana" crap. Just take a look at Phil Hughes stat line and his age (23) and you'll know why we didn't trade for Santana.
I know the Angels don't want to hear this...but I'm pretty sure it's time to call Bradon Wood a bust.
Considering he is owned over 80 million for the next 4 years, I can't see how the Wizards will trade Gilbert Arenas. I get they don't want him anywhere near John Wall, but they are going to have to cut him. I could be wrong though.
Finally, I know this has been all over the web, but man it is still funny.
