One Time Around......2

Interesting sidenote from this years Fall Classic, The All Star Game decided home field advantage for the World Series; it was a 14 inning marathon that ended around 2 o' clock in the morning. Scott Kazmir of the Tampa Bay Rays was the winning pitcher, Brad Lidge of the Phillys, the loser.

If you can present a strong case for one particular NFL team winning the Superbowl this year, I'm all ears.

The Freak that is Randy Moss......

For anyone intrigued by ultra high stakes gambling, Google " The Life of Ivey", its a series of episodes that you can watch right from your computer. Poker Pro Phil Ivey is followed around winning and losing millions playing craps, betting sports, prop betting, playing golf, and of course, playing poker. It's worth a look.

More look-alikes, New York Yankee hurler Mike Mussina and detective Nick Stokes( George Eads) from CSI Vegas.

I'm fine with the projected Red Sox starting rotation of Beckett, Lester, Matzusaka, Masterson, and Buchholz, but would really like Peavy or Sabathia in the mix, which more than likely will not happen.

If anyone was paying attention to the final out of Game 7 between Tampa and Boston, and the ensuing celebration on the mound, you had to see the Rays Johnny Gomes do his best Jimmy " Superfly" Snooka impersonation and swan dive on top of Rays phenom David Price, knocking him to the ground. The whole Tampa front office must have let out a sigh of relief when Price made his way out from under the Chaos. I'll bet the mohawk wearing Gomes would be riding the pine for a new organization, had he done the # 1 pick any harm.

From The Online Sportsbook Bodog: They have odds on which team Manny Ramirez will sign with for the 2009 season, they are as follows,
LA Dodgers 20/27
New York Yankees 11/10
New York Mets 5/1
Philadelphia Phillies 15/1
Boston Red Sox 100/1

" And with the First pick in the 2009 NFL draft, The Detroit Lions select......................"
