Quick Hitters….Observations of a Sportslifer

You know that motion Roger Clemens used when he threw the piece of shattered bat at Mike Piazza in the 2000 World Series. Is that the same motion he uses to throw people under the bus?

And it’s getting pretty crowded under that bus by the way — Debbie Clemens, Andy Pettitte, Brian McNamee, the Hendricks brothers.

We’re taking a readers survey — who’s telling the truth, Andy or Roger? Be honest now.

Speaking of the truth, we can accuse Andy Pettitte of late honesty. If he had been a bit more forthcoming, a bit earlier, the Yanks may have had Johan Santana in their rotation.

If you’re counting, 2008 marks the 100th anniversary of the Cubs last World Series title.

One of the enduring moments of the NFL playoffs was Eli Manning running around the frozen field at Lambeau, looking for someone to hug. Shades of Jim Valvano, 1983.

Was Tiki Barber that much of a distraction with the Giants? Maybe it’s more than mere coincidence that there are two “i’s” in Tiki and no “i’s” in team.

Been to any good Knicks games lately? Oops, that’s an oxymoron — good Knicks.

If the Knicks ever manage to win two in a row, Jimmy Dolan will be looking to re-up Isiah. Three straight and they’re talking playoffs at the Garden.

I like the excitement of the NHL shootout, but it’s kinda like staging a home run derby if the game is tied after 10 innings.
