Someone is cranky early in the day...
- You'd have an easier time finding a bull fighter in Yellowknife than finding someone who believes Isiah Thomas should remain coach of the New York Knicks. The Knicks aren't completely useless -- 1,000 high school coaches are using them as a bad example -- but they nearly got doubled by the Boston Celtics last night.
Fifty-nine points from a NBA team... yeah, this says it all.
It hasn't turned up on YouTube, but with about three minutes left, a guy ran down to court level behind one of the baskets, ripped a Knicks jersey off and threw it away. Could have been planted by the Celtics, who knows?
- Remember when NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said some of the best advice he's had came from Gary Bettman? Did that include putting the big Cowboys-Packers NFL light-heavyweight showdown on a network something like 70% of Americans don't get?
As anyone in Canada with basic cable can tell you, it was a fine game. Oh, and Brett Favre amazed us all by managing to fit in two interceptions before he was knocked out of the game early in the second quarter.
Oh, and the Patriots' Week 17 game vs. the New York Giants? Also on the NFL Network.
- Rutgers gets an International Bowl berth, then loses to Louisville, who lost to Syracuse earlier this season.
- Shorter version of what's coming out of the NHL meetings: Same crappy hockey, but more of it. Here's the challenge: Find the fans who were asking for the schedule to be increased to 84 games.
