I know we're all looking to get to 500 comments, but let's steer into a new post, per the post count drive by Herr Squirrel.
Yankees should try not to win the AL East: Second place positions them to play the Twins in the first round and skip the Rangers, who just swept them. Yanks own the Twins in the post-season, and Cliff Lee will always scare me. At least until he's in pinstripes next year. And how about Derek Jeter. His average is down to .261 and he's going to be a free agent. A brutal negotiation session awaits the Yankee brass. He looks like a broken down man in his 15th full year. More like 16+ seasons, if you count the post-season games. His agents will want at least four years, as he still has a shot at Pete Rose's hit record, but I fear the wheels are off. And while we're playing pessimists on the Yankees, they are not looking anything like a World Series contender. An erratic starting pitching staff and too many guys hitting under .270 in key parts of the line-up will not make up for a deep bullpen.
College Football: Rutgers and the Big East look awful. Oregon looks frisky. Marcus Lattimore looks like a stud. Why is Arkansas 12th in the nation? Is Mallett that good? Did anybody really think Penn State, Florida State or Miami had a shot this weekend? And what is up with Lou Holtz' lithp? The lisp and the voice seem to be turning into a parody of themselves, moreso by the day.
UPDATE: How 'bout them Dukies!? Ha-yuge upset win over the Hokies is strong sign for lovers of the A-10, err CAA football fans all over the Eastern part of the US. The Dukies' win was so impressive that the team garnered 11 votes in this week's AP poll. I shart you not. Check here if you don't believe me. I love that some guy put them at 15th in the country to get these votes. Hopefully his name will surface.
(D-Train was right that this was indeed news worthy, although the state of Idaho may be a bit crestfallen.)
English Premier League: Wayne Rooney scores in all the wrong ways. In case you missed this news from across the pond, here's a recap. Wayne Rooney used to love whores. He married a foxy chick with a severely disabled younger sister. Wayne impregnated the foxy chick and kept loving whores. Meanwhile, Man U blew a 2 goal lead in the 90th minute against Tim Howard's Everton squad. You stay classy Wayne.
NFL: Not sure if you guys have heard, but the Jets have a game in a new stadium tonight. The team is supposed to be pretty good, when it's not harassing female reporters. I'll check it out and report back. I have seats that are DIRECTLY behind Fireman Ed. 14 rows behind him. Oy ve. I'm tempted to heckle him for being a tool, but the dude looks pretty jacked up.
