It's time to pick some low hanging fruit...
- The controversy manufacturing plant must be hiring, as various outlets are debating the source of Sidney Crosby's concussion and whether the Pens' medical staff did anything wrong. Puck Daddy has the links. Our official position: We don't care. Whether the hit was from Steckel, Hedman, both, or neither, is irrelevant. If the Pens knew he had a concussion, he wouldn't have played against Tampa. If Crosby didn't feel OK to play, he wouldn't have played -- he, unlike a lot of fans, realizes that in an 82 game season, not every game really matters. Thus, if he was hurting, he would have sat. Our guess is that when he felt symptoms, he alerted the doctors and they agreed on a plan to sit for a week. End of story. Move along...
- Thank God for ESPN. How else would we know that the NBA's Eastern Conference ALL-STAR TEAM is "loaded"?
|Really Good Team.|
- There is a rumor going around that at some point, maybe even in 2011, Auburn and Oregon will actually play for the National Championship.
- The biggest news in college football as far as GTOG is concerned, is the news that Pitt is looking to put the memorable and uber-successful Mike Haywood era behind it by hiring the man they should have hired 8 years ago, Penn State defensive coordinator Tom Bradley. Bradley should be next in line for the Penn State job, but that succession is complicated by Joe Paterno's immortality, Joe's unqualified son Jay, and rumors that when Joe does hang it up, or die during a two-point conversion as Ron Cook would prefer, PSU will be looking to bring someone in from the outside. I feel bad for Bradley having to take the job after Haywood -- as the old saying goes, you never want to be the coach to follow a legend, you want to be the coach who follows the coach that follows a legend.
- But, one thing Stu does have right is that he is seeking support from "bloggers" to have HBO release deleted scenes from 24/7, as if they haven't thought of that. Despite penning this garbage, we can get on board with Stu.
