Sports Spots

The Red Sox pull the plug: The curse returns. Personally I think it all when south when their starting catcher, Jason Varitek, went down. The catcher plays a big part in helping the pitchers; I mean he calls the pitches, right? Mirabelli was OK as Wakefield's catcher but since Wake is down too he's clearly not up to handling anyone else. It's obvious to me that not one of the catchers they've tried since Jason was injured is much good at handling the staff that's left. Mail it in from here on out.

It's an improvement, but I'm still disappointed in the U.S. Basketball team. Clearly they're more of a team than any in recent memory, but next time they've got to round out the talent with some shooters and big men. Teamwork, speed and hussle are all good and necessary, but the object is to get the ball in the hole and stop the other team from doing the same. We'll see how the respond in their final game.

Go Andre.

Way to go Georgia.
