Everyone including myself feels the Blue Jays will need some solid starting pitching if they are to make any noise this season. If they can swing the bat the way they did on opening night they might not have to worry. Adam Lind had a homer and 6 RBI's as Toronto beat the Detroit Tigers 12-5.
I am one that thinks the New York Yankees are everything that is wrong with the world of sports. The Yankees don't want to build from within, they just want to spend, spend, spend and hope their riches bring them a championship. In the off-season, they hired CC Sabathia to come pitch for them outbidding everyone else for his services with a mammoth 161 million dollar deal. How did Sabathia do in his first game? He didn't get out of the 5th inning as the Yankees were beaten 10-5 by Baltimore.
The CFL hall of fame inductees for 2009 have apparently been announced. They include former Rider linebacker Alondra Johnson, Rudy Phillips, Jim Hill, Glen Weir and Tony Anselmo have all earned enshrinement. I don't know about you but these are not names that I hold synonomous with Canadian football.
Methinks this 100th anniversary season for the Montreal Canadiens is going to end in a big hurry. Word this morning that Matt Schneider is done for the season and Andrei "don't call me Danny" Markov is out for three weeks. If you don't have those two guys, you don't have much of a future. So much for Montreal's power play. I think they've done enough to get in the playoffs but they should be easy pickins for whoever they get in round 1.
Gotta hand it to President Barack Obama. He said before March Madness started that North Carolina would win and that is what happened. The Tar Heels winning the NC double A mens basketball championship with a convincing 89-72 win over Michigan State. North Carolina took it to Michigan State right from the opening tip and they did not take their foot off the pedal until the end.
Jeff Garcia has a new home. He is now an Oakland Raider. Is he there to start or to backup Jamarcus Russell. Time will tell!! One can't argue that Garcia is still successful but I can't see him having a lot of fun in Oakland. We'll see.
That's all I got for now. Have a good Tuesday and thanks for reading. I'm getting more and more visits each week so thank you for coming to this page. It is appreciated!!
