Sunday tidbits at the Confluence

  • Is it just me, or does the sun a little brighter the morning after the Yankees are eliminated ??
  • Joe Torre is rumored to be given the pink slip today, with Lou Pinella given another shot in the Bronx. Anyone else think it won't work ??
  • I don't care what anyone says, if you think all of the Yankees' problems are A-Rod's fault, you don't know much about baseball.
  • I am so happy for Jim Leyland and his relocated Pirates coaching staff of Lemont, Slaught, Belliard, Van Slyke, and McClendon.
  • I am eagerly awaiting to see how crude, lude, and rude the Eagles fans will be towards T.O. today. Nothing they do surprise me.
  • By the way, the Mets closed out the Dodgers last night, if anyone could filter out the Yankee coverage on ESPN.
  • Word is that Culpepper is gonna sit today vs. the Pats. New England's already 9 1/2 point favorites, are we looking at double digits now, Vegas ??
  • Indy favored by 18 1/2 at home today over Tennessee. Wow, I'm sorry, but that's a lot of points.
  • Call me a Steelers homer (and you'd be right), but if you're jumping on the Ravens bandwagon after THOSE first four games, don't whine to me when they come back to Earth.
  • After the first few games of the NHL regular season, the Sabres seem to have "IT".
  • It took 13 rounds of the shootout before the Rangers beat the Flyers last night. It took until the 6th Flyer before they put Forsberg in there, and he said it was because he didn't trust his sticks. Huh ??
  • The Stanley Cup champion Hurricanes are 0-2-1 after 3 games. Those injuries on the blueline may start to put them in a hole for later in the year.

Yeah bro...the sun is absolutely brighther...check out my take!The POJO DOJO: The Demise of the Yankees It's unfortunate about Torre, but it's time. There are certainly more problems on that team that ARod...but you also have to admit that irregardless of his stats, he doesn't make big plays very often that mean something, and his errors this year just plain sucked. He's not the only problem, but I do think he's the main problem.

I concur on Leyland and the rest. It's a damn good staff...

You were 100% correct about Miami AND Tennessee...

Screw the Titans

I agree with the Sabres...and if I had to pick anyone right now, it would be Buffalo to go all the way.

Carolina looks plain bad...and injuries are a big part of the problem...but you'll also have to say something about the lack of summer...I mean...holy hell, didn't the season end last week?

Great post bro...your bread and butter...
