Yeah...I know...I said week six would be out until after the hollidays. Guess we all have a little Clark, Ct. in us.
Caroline Kennedy. What to say? Oh how the moonbats loved to drag Sarah Palin around and now this. Just too funny reading the fawning and attempts to do a justification.
Madoff. Scott Burns had a nice column today showing that this character stole more than the sum of the last three years of crime against property in this country. Amazing. About 15 years ago I realized that the small amounts we had invested were doing rather flat. The three brokerage houses - Met Life, Fidelity and Putnam we did business with were returning about 5%. I learned as I went and the average up until this year was 12% but that is now about 8%.
The Raven. Talk about having to do some major damage control! Scott…earn your money. I suspect the Tribe will somehow withstand the shenanigans of the small or maybe large coterie of coat holders who hung around this guy and, IMO, took part in the smorgasbord of activities. May take a long, long time and may well cause a review of the whole process. The BOS is obviously having second thoughts on the whole package they signed off on and may now try and weasel their way into a more town friendly agreement. Beep…beep…beep…
Boston Red Sox. Thankfully Mark Teixeria decided to go elsewhere. The recent contract negotiations showed this young man to be just another in a long line of “Show Me The Money” types that have infiltrated sports. Yeah….I heard all the sob stories about returning to the bosom of his home town area in Maryland. Mommy, daddy and siblings all coming out to cheer him on. The O’s and Nats reportedly offered a 165 Mil for eight years and the Sox 168 Mil for eight. The Angels dropped out at 160 Mil. Sox put a lid out and folder. Natch he went where the money was - Noo Yawk! I knew all I wanted to know about Tex when the Sox brass went to his home in Texas - no state income tax. F-R-A-U-D! Home town? LOL!
The Noo Yawk yankees. They can spend as they please but the end result is a string of exorbitant contracts goes right down the food chain and puts the smaller market teams at even a greater disadvantage. Now a budding FA will cost even more to keep on your team so good luck to the lesser lights.
Speaking of lights the theme of the week is now been transferred from tribal legitimacy to a light show. Light pollution. Thank goodness we never built that 200 inch telescope on Barden Hill. I really have a dismissive attitude on that issue as I’d prefer turtles and water as a better long shot.
Pats. As a Giants fan I wish you well since my family is all Pats fans. So much for passing on my intellect. Pats really have had a great season to this point and if things fall into place they could be playing at home next week. Matt Cassell stands to do some heavy duty money grubbing after this season.
