Baseball writers are getting smarter about MVP voting and football writers, it would appear, are getting dumber. Peyton Manning had the best season of any quarterback on a playoff team, and that makes a pretty obvious most valuable player choice.
Best attempt to sum up the NHL's Winter Classic: If there's going to be a bastardized version of Take Me Out To The Ballgame, at least it was led by Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita. Please hold it at Fenway Park next season, so baseball purists can renew their beef.
Stan Mikita, greatest guy ever.
You know why the Miami Dolphins are in the playoffs? Because Chad Pennington is the 13th quarterback to start for them since No. 13, Dan Marino, retired.
A gut reaction to the Stephen Marbury to the Celtics story? It has to happen -- just for the joke on the Marbury-haters, and just for reason to get on the L.A. Lakers bandwagon, guilt-free.
Some big brains run the OHL. Kingston Frontenacs defenceman Zack Fenwick got a 15-game suspension for an incident in a game against Oshawa. His first game back? Tonight against Oshawa.
This post is worth nothing, but this is worth noting
- Even though he plays for a eminently hateable organization, mazel tov to Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis for winning Jewish Most Valuable Player honours.
- Pat Williams is a game-time decision for the Minnesota Vikings. The Toronto Sun's handicapper is taking them to beat the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, so the Vikes are probably already doomed.
