Winter of Discontent….

December 15, 2009

We gotta do better than this

Maybe the winter is just starting but in the baseball world it’s almost over. Pitchers and catchers will begin reporting to sunny locales at the end of February and position players will be there soon after. The Mess, sorry I mean the Mets have yet to make a splash, let alone a ripple in this years free-agent market after losing 90 plus games last season. According to sources, the Phillies have signed Roy Halladay and John Lackey is headed to Boston. The Mets have sent offers to left fielder Jason Bay and catcher Bengie Molina, but have yet to receive acceptances.

The top 10 athletes of the 2000’s….No. 7

December 15, 2009

A bolt of energy

Few athletes broke as many records as the number 7 athlete did this decade.  Bursting onto the NFL scene in 2001, this runningback has amassed over 12,000 rushing yards, 4,000 receiving yards, 147 touchdowns, and plenty of awards and honors.  Runningback might be the only position where there was a clear No. 1 player, and arguments for the spot would be rare. Not that there weren’t other great runningbacks,  but candidates got more and more limited as the decade went on and everyone switched to multiple-running back systems. Getting anywhere near a decade of great production is a lot to ask of any back, but the number 7 athlete certainly was the greatest.

Islanders routed by the Panthers

December 15, 2009

Nathan Horton scores his first of three goals

I actually watched most of this game, and what an embarrassment it was.  The Islanders were beaten to every loose puck, could not get their fore-check going, and looked flat in every aspect of the game. 

If there had been anything more significant than the sparse crowd on hand at Nassau Coliseum last night, the Islanders would’ve been hit with a hurricane of boos, but with the paltry attendance (listed as 10,489) the team was lucky to escape with just an understated shower of discontent after a humiliating 7-1 defeat by the Panthers.

Rangers can’t solve Hedberg and the Thrashers

December 15, 2009

Johan Hedberg made 46 saves in victory

 

via Associated Press

NEW YORK — Johan Hedberg was so busy during the game, he deserved the break he got in the shootout.

Hedberg made a career-best 46 saves and then was perfect in two shootout rounds to lift the Atlanta Thrashers to a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Monday night.

Captain Ilya Kovalchuk and Slava Kozlov scored on the Thrashers’ only shootout shots against Henrik Lundqvist. Hedberg made a pad save on NHL-leading goal scorer Marian Gaborik in the first round and then watched the puck slide off the stick of Ales Kotalik before he could muster an attempt.
