... the Senators possibly waiving Martin Gerber. It's not the goaltending. Sens GM Bryan Murray has reiterated the need for a "puck-moving defenceman" so often the hockey writers in Ottawa could get away with just typing PMD. The Sens will find a PMD right around the time Bush and Cheney find the WMDs.
... all-star shortstop Michael Young asking for a trade at a time when his first organization, the Toronto Blue Jays, are in austerity mode.
... The Atlanta Thrashers putting the "C" on Ilya Kovalchuk. It's not like it stands for "checking."
... Vancouver being up a creek over paying for the 2010 Olympics. It will fit right in with their new tourist slogan: "Vancouver: Montreal with milder weather."
... college football not having a playoff. The NFL has it all wrong by taking the chance of ending up with the No. 4 and No. 6 seeds in a championship game. It's better to pick two teams at random and say "Screw you, Utah."
.... Tim Tebow returning to Florida for his senior season. He probably won't play quarterback in the NFL and it's much more interesting to keep an eye on Ball State's Nate Davis.
... Dolphins quarterback Chad Pennington being named NFL Comeback Player of the Year for the second time in three seasons. Chris Rock hasn't had as many good comebacks.
... Liverpool tying Stoke 0-0 on the Premiership (yes, if forced to swear soccer loyalty, it's the Reds).

- That picture of our favourite funny bastard is not original, but no one ever said it was. That's the difference, WTVH Syracuse.
