Quote of the day
"The refs have got to do their jobs. And I mentioned it to the refs in training camp when I talked to them. I'm on the ground constantly, all the time. Every time I throw the ball, I'm on the ground. And I don't know why I don't get the 15-yard flags like everybody else does." -- Eagles QB Michael Vick, after a loss to the Giants in which he broke his non-throwing hand
The baseball playoff races have come down to the two wild card finishes, and both are aptly named “wild.” With three games remaining, both Boston and Atlanta have magic numbers of 3. Tampa Bay and Atlanta get to play at home, while the Sox and Cardinals are on the road. Tampa Bay and Atlanta play teams that are prepping for postseason (Yankees and Philly), while the other two play teams going nowhere (Baltimore and Houston). Either race could be sewn up by the end of Tuesday; either could result in a one-game playoff. Admittedly, the Angels are still mathematically alive, but they must now win out and need both Boston and Tampa Bay to lose out. Not likely. But stay tuned.
It’s not often that one of the top QBs in a given weekend tosses four interceptions, but Tom Brady added 4 TDs and 387 passing yards to his four picks, and – depending on scoring system – that generally ranked him in the top 10-20% of QBs for the day. The four interceptions were particularly notable because that matched his total for the entire 2010 season.
