The stuff you're not letting bother you today ...
The gut feeling Henrik and Daniel Sedin's playoff underperformance (prior to Monday night's barnburner in Chicago) won't be so big a factor if they sign with the Leafs. They'd have to make it to May first, first.
TSN putting out a second press release hyping TSN2's coverage of next week's Red Sox-Blue Jays series.
(The rumour du jour: The Leafs, drafting No. 7 and the Lightning, picking No. 2, are going to flip picks and Toronto takes Ryan Malone's salary-cap hit.)
Talk about the NFL playing the Super Bowl in London, England. Everything there is already unaffordable as it is. Besides, you don't take your sport to new markets by playing games there, you do it by having players from those countries, such as Yao Ming or Dirk Nowitzki in the NBA or Ichiro in baseball. The NFL is comical when it comes to its Marshall Plan-era efforts to understand America's backwards neighbours throughout the world.
The ads Rogers Sportsnet ran last week trumpeting that the Blue Jays finished April first in the American League in "runs scored, hits and RBI." The first fifth of their season has been awesome, but two of those categories are essentially the same thing and what's slightly less irrelevant, hits or higher batting average? (The Jays are still first in that, at a robust .294.)
Sportsnet's been playing up tonight's pitching matchup between new Yankee A.J. Burnett and his "mentor," Roy Halladay. Ironically, Burnett is actually the oldest of the two.
The Windsor play-by-play announcer who shouted "Mission accomplished!" after the Spitfires won the OHL title on Taylor Hall's overtime goal without betraying the proper hint of irony (around the 4:15 mark).
(Seriously, how nails is Taylor Hall, the Kingston boy? The Kingston minor hockey product leading the Spits to a Memorial Cup berth, Mike Murphy being named the league's best goalie and the Kingston Kimco Voyageurs finishing fourth in all of Canada was more than enough to salvage the Limestone City's collective pride, junior hockey-wise.)
