Sparky sighting

OK, Stu. I've climbed out of the cave, but like the groundhog, I'm seeing my shadow and won't be out for long.
Don't get me started on the Yank-mes signing some second-rate son of the Rising Sun to try to keep up with THE Boston Red Sox, thank you very much. Daisuke Matsuzaka has already dropped the puck at a Bruins game, that's how important he's going to be. The only way Comeon Iwanna Igawa can get into Madison Square Garden is if he buys a ticket for the Westminster Dog Show, and even than, he won't win best in breed.

Alert the Denver police. Allan Iverson and Carmelo Anthony in the same strip joints. Yes, officer, I did drop that match into the can of gas, but I didn't think anything was going to happen.

After two years at the top, don't be surprised to see State of the Union football take a big drop back into mediocrity next season. Don Audinoleone had better be beating the scrub bushes in Florida to bring in more athletes like Doug Davis and Vito Pellerito. I hear Pete Brown lit up a victory cigar after the Dutchmen beat Hobart. What was he smoking after the RPI game?

I was going to expound on the state of Divison I women's basketball in the Capital District, but if a bad team loses and no one is watching, is it really a loss?

Hey, Stu, got to jump back into the cave. Tell Santa to put a quarterback under Don Audinoleone's tree.

The Sox got took on this deal. They overpayed for a guy that has never pitched in The Bigs. Let's see how it goes.

Anybody in that cave with you?

I see where the latest reincarnation of the Albany Patroons put up 142 points last night in a win at the Armory. That's about 10.1 points per person counted as attending. When the old Shaeffer Brewers put up 142 it was a bad shooting night, but at least they had folks watching. We may be at the limit of sports teams this area will support in the winter. With RPI and Union Hockey, Siena and Albany Basketball, The Rats and the 'troons, there are just not enough sports fans and sports dollars to go around. Hey you get a few thousand peoples at high school games on Tuesday nights and that makes it tough for the 'troons to draw anybody.
