Quote of the day
"San Diego continues to be the most friendly stadium in the league for opposing teams. Trailing in the 4th quarter, Manning had no trouble changing plays at the line with barely a peep from the crowd. Unreal. They made more noise at halftime when Phil Mickelson was lining up his charity attempt golf shot. Then booed when he failed to drop the ball into a kiddie pool sized target from 100 yards. Wow." -- Footballguys.com writer Joe Bryant, in his weekly “Random Shots” email
The Yankees avoided a sweep last night when the weather radar forced a postponement. But even so, they probably lost the ability to bring Sabathia back for a possible game 7 start (now on only 2-days rest), since the intervening off-day was sacrificed. Of course, it’s unlikely that a game seven will be needed.
As of this moment, 71 Football Pickoff contestants (81%) have picked San Francisco to beat Seattle tonight. That’s not surprising. Two have doubled the game, making for a high risk, low reward gamble. If SF wins, gain 38 pts. If they lose, drop 162.
