The American past time is back! You know what that means.
Another year of dashed hopes and
dreams come true. Will the Yankees win another World
Series? Can anyone else win it?
The season kicked off on April 1st with a game between
the Toronto Blue Jays, a Canadian team, and the Texas
Rangers, an American team, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The
$129,000 per game man, Alex Rodriguez, had 1 hit and 2
errors for the losing Rangers. Now, what's wrong with
that picture? I'm still waiting for someone to yell
Hockey playoffs officially start later this month. A few
teams are fighting for their playoff lives. The Boston
Bruins and the Carolina Hurricanes are vying for the last
spot in the Eastern Conference. In the Western
Conference, it's the Pheonix Coyotes and the Los Angeles
Kings. The Colorado Avalanche and the Detroit Red Wings
are the hottest teams going in. I give the nod to
Basketball's winding down as well, with the Boston
Celtics making an incredible turnaround once they fired
their coach Rick Pitino. As of this writing, they were
tied with the Indiana Pacers for the last playoff spot in
the Eastern Conference. The NCAA Championship was decided
and the winners are the Duke Blue Devils, with an 82-72
winner over the Arizona Wildcats. That gives Duke its 3rd
National Championship. On the women's side, Notre Dame
defeated the Purdue Boilermakers, 68-66. It was the
fighting Irish's first women's crown.
The XFL has their "Really Big Game At The End"
this month. Looks as though this might be a 1 year
league. I'd be surprised if it comes back next year. The
NFL has gone through their players shuffle and their
draft this month. You know, that annual San Diego
Chargers, Cleveland Browns, and Cincinatti Bengals
contest to pick the worst people they possibly can.
Dale Jarrett has the lead in NASCAR's Winston Cup by 75
points over Jeff "Crybaby" Gordon. Rookie Kevin
Harvick won his first race in only his 3rd start. He took
over the car formerly driven by the late Dale Earnhardt.
That's it for this month. Until next month,
good night and good sports.
