Thanks for the memories Joe

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in today. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae if she is checking in.

While much of the hockey world waits in anticipation for the ousting of the 2007/08 Montreal Canadiens (ok, maybe Leaf Nation waits), hockey fans are wondering of we are going to bid adieu to Colorado Avalanche Captain Joe Sakic.

After being swept by the Detroit Red Wings, Sakic said he was unsure about his future and would take some time over the summer to decide whether or not he is going to return for another season. Sakic has quietly been one of the best players of his generation - one of the only players today that you could say "he plays every shift the way the game is supposed to be played". The man has been a model of consistency and epitomized class; he is the ultimate role model for any player entering the NHL. Sakic has to be one of the most respected players to ever play the game - by fans and by his peers. If he decides to hang them up, he can look back on a great career and say that he has accomplished everything there is to in the game of hockey.

Thanks for the memories Joe - you'll be missed.

The total is in the black for the week - albeit minimal - the week will finish off with a flurry of winners.

San Diego over Florida - Jake Peavy goes for the Padres, who are desperately in need of a win; good enough for me to say they win. Lay $100 on the Padres - $155.

Cleveland over Kansas City - C.C. Sabathia is starting to come around, which is bad news for the Royals. Lay $100 on the Tribe - $225.

Boston over Tampa Bay - the Sox will be looking for revenge against Shields who shut them out in Tampa; it is about time Josh Beckett came up with a dominant performance. Lay $100 on the Sox - $160.

That's it for today gang - thanks for taking the time to check in.

Hazel, here's hoping things are groovy in your world.

I'm Out!
