Time for a stream of semi-consciousness not all of it Mets related :
I’m as upset as most Mets fans with the inactivity so far by the front office in procurement of players but when you look at the list of free agents still available I’m hoping its Sandy Alderson playing the supply and demand game and not the We’re broke game. There are still some good players and some serviceable ones still looking for employment and as every day goes by without these players signed to a contract I have to believe it’s a day closer to desperation.
One player on the free agent pitchers list is Scott Kazmir, I’d love to see the Mets offer him a minor league deal and an invite to spring training.
I wish HBO’s Rangers-Flyers 24/7 could go on for the whole season. In the three weeks the show has aired, I’ve gotten a better appreciation for Coach Tortorella and his work as a master motivator. The on ice stuff is unbelievably good as Brad Richards tells Flyers career minor leaguer Tom Sestito, who is going off at the Rangers bench like a fucking moron on how he’s going to beat the shit out of every Ranger, “Wow on day in the NHL, it’s like fuckin’ fantasy camp” or Flyer Coach Peter Laviolette telling Dallas Stars to “go fuck himself” when Ott feels Laviolette disrespects his Stars teammates by using their exit to get to the locker room. By the way, how did the Islanders ever fire Laviolette? Oh that’s right, Mike Milburry was in charge.
I guess the euphoria over the NY Knickerbockers has died down a bit after back to back losses to Golden State and the Hollywood Fakers. It’s very hard to win in this league without a true point guard who can distribute the ball and keep Stoudimire and ‘Melo happy with dimes leading to points. Some scoring off the bench, especially at the 2 guard would be nice as well and of course playing defense, especially in the interior is a must. But we know defense and Coach D’Antoni don’t mix, which is why Jimmy Dolan will regret the day he didn’t can Coach D and hire Mark Jackson .
In my Blue heart of hearts, I believe the NY Football Giants will beat the Dallas Cowgirls on Sunday night and win the NFC East but my stomach is still in knots thinking about the porous Giants secondary getting lit up by Tony Romo. Just got to hope that JPP gets to Romo early and often.
The question Stephen A. Smith should have asked Rex Ryan was not if he’d take Peyton Manning over Mark Sanchez but would Coach Big Mouth rather have Cam Newton over Dirty Sanchez? With all the Tebowing going on in the MSM, they have of course missed the obvious that Cam Newton is the NEXT BIG THING in the NFL.
If it weren’t for the assholes who make up the New York Highlander hierarchy, we NY Rangers fans would be getting ready to head to the South Bronx for Rangers-Flyers in the Winter Classic. But instead, the House That AJ Burnett Built will host a small time bullshit college football game. I guess it hasn’t sunk in to the powers that be who run the Bronx Bastards that no one in NYC gives a rat’s ass about college football but I guess they will realize it today when about a quarter of the stadium will have ass’s in the seats as opposed to the full house they would have had if they were hosting the Winter Classic.
Plus you know the NHL wanted the Rangers to play either the Montreal Canadiens or the Toronto Maple Leafs at Highlander Stadium but will settle for Rangers-Flyers in Philly just so the NY fan can bring his deep pockets 90 miles south.
To one and all I want to wish a Happy and most importantly a Healthy New Year.
