Diaw'd He Do That = me (as usual)

btw, thanks a lot for not alerting me to the Monta Ellis injury. You'd think after about 100 drafts when no one else is taking a guy, I'd know something is up. Luckily, I absolutely slayed every other pick so I clearly will win even while giving the field an extra player.

New Stadiums: Prices, and Outrage, Escalate

Times change things get more expensive, I think everyone understands that, but what the Giants in particular are doing is a crying shame. Seat increases come with the territory, but the institution of PSL's is a big giant f-u to their current ticket holders. A good portion of the patrons that fill that stadium are about to lose a piece of their family heritage. Tickets that have been in families for generations are going to find their themselves in new hands. Not the hands of fans who were there in 4-12 seasons. It happens, it's just sad. John Mara can make his own decisions, but it doesn't seem to match up with what his father had planned. Charge the corporations - Dear ExxonMobil, you want one of our nice new luxury boxes? They're $500,000 more now, you're picking up the tab for our fans.

Spofi EPL pool 08-09

I don't think the 68 includes his penalty. Still (if my math is right) making the move just for the ManYoo backfield would have netted you +10 over a standard 2 point result even with the deductions, so in theory gambling can pay off.

I had a feeling the Pompey defense was a bad idea. Trying to figure out how yerfatma pointed me at Ashton during the MLS all star game but didn't have him on his squad.

I think the decision to cut to 16 teams is a good one. It'll still be the toughest league you're in.

A dazzling Manny being Manny moment

Yeah, Manny's got more talent in some ways than any ballpark can hold. Great statement. I think the game is just so easy for Manny at times, but his personality is so opposite the other players of his caliber. He doesn't seem to retreat to the dark pursuit of being perfect, looking for that edge and smelling his own ass in the way other players have in recent years. Yes, it's a contract year - but I think he's just swinging the bat and playing the game as much as it is contractual motivation. For reference of how far Manny had fallen out of favor, this was Baseball Prospectus' projection for 2008. .281 AVG 74 R 22 HR 89 RBI

Not at all because you only provided information to make it seem as if it was in fact a wise move to make. Never before have such clearly stated facts so easily been refuted by a statement that ONLY further proves the points in question with such unexplained logic.

Randy Moss Re-Signs with the Patriots

I sincerely hope that the real Randy Moss resurfaces and NE gets burned. The real Randy Moss? I think that's the player who has not once, but twice, taken less money than was offered but other teams to play for the Patriots. I think the real Randy Moss is interested in playing with the best QB in the league and for the team that is the out and out favorites to win next year. I must be drinking the kool-aid again
