Monday morning quiz:
Who had a better day yesterday: LaDainian Tomlinson, or Maccabi Tel Aviv?
Who had the crazier finish: The Argos, or the Alouettes?
What's more jarring: the Bills, top of their division, or the White Sox, into the World Series?
And who don't you want to be this morning?
Uh, only one answer to that question, even with Michelle Wie's pro debut in the running. C'mon down, Sam Mitchell!
|Well David, at least we sold the place out.|
Uh, do we start the playoff elimination pool now?
Tim Farrell gave us a scouting report on Friday that's required reading (including a nickname for Rafael (Hoffa) Araujo that's good enough to steal: Hoffensive Foul) and offers this suggestion:
"I don't see why there has been no talk of sending (Hoffensive Foul) to the NBDL for a bit. It seems like this new rule was made for him. I suppose the argument against such a move is that big men need to be in the NBA to develop, since the D-League offers far less size. I suppose the other reason is because Rob Babcock drafted him 8th overall and won't yet admit defeat."
Now I want yours (and if anyone can find yesterday's boxscore online, please send us a link). If you were out there yesterday, what did you see? And even if you weren't, what are your impressions of where the Raptors are, and where they aren't?
Elsewhere, Rich Griffin has the latest example of When
Good Umpires Turn Bad. And yes, that's the Houston Astros, one win away from their first World Series (sort of like last year, and is it just me, or are the Astros the Ovaltine of sporting life?).
Upcoming: a reality TV show based on John Daly's life. Which segues to this: Chris Zelkovich wonders why the broadcasters of the "born-again NHL" remain so fixated on the fight highlights. Which segues to this: it wouldn't be the start of a new week without Saturday's latest entry for The Collected Works of Donald Stewart Cherry:
"This is not supposed to be".
But this is life.
I've got something here I want to show:
A little code,
A little honour
I've got right over here.
