Hey peeps, and anyone else checking in; a special hey to Ms. Hazel Mae.
Long day today so not going to post much tonight - I may be the only freaking person in North America that doesn't benefit from the extra hour...turning clocks back my...
Halloween brings some very shocking news, downright scary in some respects.
ESPN reported this afternoon that Theo Epstein had resigned as GM of the Boston Red Sox. This was a shock to say the least - some people have speculated that Theo may have his eye on a the now vacant job with the Dodgers (since Paul Depodesta was fired). Former Jay GM Pat Gillick is also being considered for the job in L.A. But that is neither here nor there...the downright scary thing about Epstein's resignation is that the Chickenhawk (aka J.P. Ricciardi) will likely be on a short list to replace Epstein. Word of warning to Red Sox Nation - be wary of the snake oil salesman who is forever building and forever making excuses...if he goes home to New England, you can count on the fact that he is going to try to make an impression right away...an impression that will weaken Boston. He will definitely try to put his stamp on the team by trading Ramirez; but he is an ego-maniac and he wouldn't stop there. More to come on this...oh, for the record - I don't buy this stuff about Epstein. I think something will happen to make him "reconsider" his decision.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders says they knew a year ago that police were considering charges against LB Trevis Smith. It was recently revealed that Smith, who is now under arrest for aggravated sexual assault is also HIV positive.
Anyone catch the guy who ran out on the field and took the ball away from Favre at the Packers/Bengals game? Should that have counted as Favre's six INT of the day?
I am not going to get into the Leafs/Senatards game...scary, ugly...yuck.
Ok, not much more tonight...more to follow this week. Thank you for taking the time to stop by for a few minutes (whenever you read this). To Ms. Hazel Mae...I say, I hope things are groovy in your world...I'm still writing that opinion peace - I swear I will finish it soon.
Song of the Day on Hazelspeeps...for Red Sox Nation that might be saying goodbye to Theo (though I'm not convinced - yet)...to some current Dodgers (J.D. Drew and Jeff Kent) who got big fat inflated contracts from Paul Depodesta...
