Some Observations

Posted on: November 23, 2008 11:04 am

Just a few things I think or have thought or might think some time in the future.

I was watching Patrick Roy's number getting retired on Saturday and he did not look like somebody getting his number enshrined by one of the great sports franchises in the history of modern sports. Still seems to be some anger lingering.

Holy Sh%t is Megan Fox hot!

In regards to the Tennesse Titans.  I love the style of football they play, but I think they will fizzle in the playoffs.  I realize the style they play, tough D and a strong running attack translate into playoff success, but there is going to come a point when Kerry Collins will be forced to win a game for them against a quilty team and I do not have the confidence he can.

Look for the Jets to represent the AFC in the Superbowl.  Not easy for me to admit being a diehard Pats fan, but I think they have great balance on both sides of the ball and Brett Favre seems to be buying into the system lately and not throwing up on himself in the 4th quarter. 

I hope that people are now starting to realize that Paul Pierce is a top 10 if not top 5 player in the NBA. 

Roberto Luongo is the best goaltender I have seen come into the league since Martin Brodeur.

Why doesn't C.C Sabathia just sign with the Yankees and get it just get it over with.  No other team is going to come close to the Yankees contract offer in terms of years or dollars.
Once he signs the flood gates will open up.

These are the major free agents and the teams I think they will sign with:

Mark Teixera-Red Sox
Makes sense in so many ways and nobody except the Yankees can out bid them and they have a bigger need than hitting.

Omar can't resist and he has a new stadium to fill.

Manny Ramirez-Mets
see above

AJ Burnett-Phillies
This is kind of a dark horse pick, but it makes alot of sense. A national league team coming off of a World Series win, with deep pockets and could use another big arm( like every other team in MLB)

C.C Sabathia-Yankees
When a team offers you the gross national budget of Bolivia, it's a slam dunk.  Yankees will not compete in the division without a top of the line ace.

That's all I have. 

If you read it, let me know what you think.
