THIS ONLY CAME 10 YEARS TOO LATE
And Other Ramblings in the World Of Sports
THIS ONLY CAME A DECADE TOO LATE:
So I see the Open Wheel Wars are finally over. The IRL and Champ Car are finally merging. Good work boys. How embarrassing is it that the defending IRL and Indy 500 Champ (Dario Franchitti) and 4-time defending Champ Car title holder (Sebastien Bourdais) aren't around to see it?
Oh well, at least the Danica All-Hype No Substance machine is still going. I guess if you can't win a race, just pose half naked in SI's swimsuit issue.
I LIKE THIS:
Ned Yost, who was a part of the 82 World Series team, says his players are sick of hearing about the glory years of the early 80's...they want to create their own glory years.
LOVE IT! How many times have the Brewers trotted out 82 stuff, because that's about all they have to hang their hat on? Keep preachin' it at spring training, Ned!
I'LL WATCH THIS:
Normally, watching guys run in their underwear at the combine bores me to tears. Like former Steelers Coach Bill Cowher used to say, if this was football...they'd play it in their underwear! But I will be very curious to see what cornerbacks impress in Indy...because I have a distinct feeling Ted Thompson and the gang will be taking one early in April's draft.
