Tuesday's Notables

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Opening Day at Fenway Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

So with MLB in full swing, the NHL charging towards the playoffs, and most countries in Europe winding down their secondary cup championships - for the time being, the Hazies are going to be handed out on a daily basis. Its a lot of work for Hazel to hand out all that hardware - but I'm sure she can handle a little light weight training...she's in good shape isn't she?

Semi-final play downs in Italy and France today.

Luis Figo set up the game tying goal for Inter Milan today as they tied Udinese, but winning 3-2 on aggregate, and moving into the final of the Italian Cup. Last year Inter couldn't score to save their lives - this year, they are scoring. Coincidence or Figo? Remember Hazel... "Feee-gou" is the Portuguese pronounciation.

Portuguese international (Azorean born...on our island no less!) Pauleta scored today to give Paris St. Germain a win over Lille and vault the Parisiens into the finals against Marseille. Pauleta leads the French Ligue 1 in scoring with 20 goals this season. Get used to saying his name Hazel...he will be a key figure in Portugal's run at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

Portuguese Internationals all over Europe are turning it up a notch as we head to Germany this summer...Deco in Barcelona, Ronaldo at Manchester United, Carvalho and Ferreira are anchoring Chelsea - its going to be a fun World Cup.

When the Leafs lost in a shootout to the Bruins last week (with the lovely Hazel in attendance before her birthday bash) I went on record as saying that I had given up...that I wouldn't be fooled by the Leafs' hot streak. I thought only an act of divine intervention would do it - well tonight, captain Mats Sundin scored four goals and added two assists to lead the Maple Leafs' to a 6-5 O/T victory over the Panthers tonight. The chances are still slim, but...have I told you about Hazel Karma? Was Hazel Karma at work tonight? Divine intervention? One in the same?

Things that make you go hmmmm.

Red Sox Nation is celebrating a blistering start to their season - the Sox are 6-1 and the world is a beautiful place. Josh Beckett was the opening day hero today - pitching 7 innings, giving up one run on three hits, four walks and striking out two . Beckett's trade to Boston left a gaping hole in Hazel Mae's Heroes pitching rotation (NL only Roto League). Red Sox Nation is going to love this guy...lets hope the blister problems are behind him. Speaking of the game...didn't I say Hinske would go 0 for 3?

Speaking of the 2006 edition of Hazel Mae's Heroes - as mentioned, we lost Josh Beckett to the Red Sox...but we picked up Bronson Arroyo. Arroyo is off to a great start in Cincinnati - picking up his second win of the season today against the Cubs. Bronson pitched seven shutout innings, giving up six hits and striking out four - oh yeah, he also hit his second HR of the season - have I mentioned Hazel Karma? Arroyo's breakout season came after spending some time playing the guitar for Hazel. I wonder if Red Sox Nation is missing him yet. Speaking of Bronson Arroyo...did you catch Wily Mo Pena out in right field today?

Adam Dunn and Padres SS Kalil Greene each had two HR games today. Oakland 3B Eric Chavez and former Red Sox Bill Mueller each hit two in a losing cause.

That about wraps it up for tonight...have a great one peeps.

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world - if you are watching over Leaf Nation...we could use a couple more big games from Mats...if you aren't too busy with NESN that is.

Song of the Night on Hazelspeeps - for this late season surge of the Maple Leafs...going back to the great teams of the 90's - Hazel has to remember the rally song.

No Limit - 2Unlimited

Peesth Out!
