Link Scrap: Holiday Hangover

December 26, 2008

Sorry about the lack of posts, but the lawn chair boys have been busy eating and being merry with family. So I figured the best way to catch back up would be to link scrap a couple stories we missed over the past couple of days.

The Yankees swooped in at the last moment and snagged Mark Teixeira and in doing so disgusted the nation with their total lack of economic discretion. It is not hard for me to admit that I have always had a gross amount of disdain for the Yankees and this certainly adds some fuel to the fire. I understand the love for the history revolving around the organization, yet I cannot comprehend how any baseball fans can receive even a fraction of joy in rooting for a team that buys their way every year. For more on the subject, check out blue collar baseball.

The Lakers and Celtics faced off yesterday, with the Lakers coming away as the victors. But it is way to early to get excited about a Celtics-Laker finals. With the Cavs, Magic, Spurs and the Rockets playing at such a high level; it is quite possible that both Boston and Los Angeles won't even make it. This was just 1/82 of the season and its far to early to crown anyone, although it was nice to see Gasol exact some revenge on the team that made him look as soft as Charmin last summer.

Those are the stories that really caught my attention. But if you are in need of some weekend reading, I would like to recommend a story published by The New York Times and written by Thayer Evans. The story is focused on Jamarkus McFarland, a five-star defensive tackle, in the middle of a heated recruiting battle. It gives you an inside look at the shady interactions of big time college football recruiting.

I leave you today with the hope that everyone has had (and will continue to have) a safe and happy [insert holiday here]
