Flotsam and Jetsam
Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.
Dick Tuck - perhaps the most fascinating political operative in history... Eli Manning's contract makes him the highest paid QB in the NFL but I'd bet on average 10 QB's are taken before him in fantasy football drafts. I'd take Brady, Peyton, Brees, Warner, Cutler, Ryan, Roethlisberger, McNabb, Romo and Palmer all before Eli Manning... Heh heh - Ferris Bueller: Psychopath... Just saying that the grass is not always greener - JD Drew has played 344 games with the Red Sox and hit a HR on average every 33 AB since joining the team. In that same time frame Johnny Damon has played 41 more games and average a HR every 34 AB... There is a report that the Red Sox have put in a claim on Cristian Guzman. I believe it. Checking the Red Sox minor league depth at SS and man is it depressing. You have to go to Single A Salem to find a SS hitting above .220... Pure gold- John Hughes' Vacation 58 - the short story the movie Vacation was base on... The O/U for Notre Dame wins this season is 9. Yikes! I was willing to take the over at 8 but 9? Don't think so... A one-man stage show of Hemingway's Old Man and the Sea starring Erik Estrada would be so bad it's good in a Springtime for Hitler type way.
