Update: Gilbert Arenas done with blogging? Truly a "say it ain't so" moment for sports bloggers and fans.
Nothing captures the essence of "instant history" found in the baseball season like "awards" handed out after the first month of the season is over. Who wins my awards? You'll have to check out the lead of today's Sporting News column.
The Celtics may seem to have their series with the Hawks in hand, but the fact that it has taken THIS long means that the Hawks win, no matter what happens...
The Wizards just gave a big "f-u" to the Cavs, Cavs fans, the media and the NBA. DC will be rocking tomorrow night at the Verizon Center...
I wouldn't hire Avery Johnson, would you?
Cliff Lee. Max Scherzer. Ervin Santana. Geovany Soto. Micah Owings.
The BCS will stay as-is until 2014. The Plus-One was DOA (thankfully, because it's an idea I hate). If you want a playoff, perhaps you will now take my not-so-crazy idea seriously that the SEC lead a "SEC-ession" from the BCS to form a new playoff group. If you hate the current system, it cannot be a worse outcome.

More later today. I worked on a "final thoughts" about the whole Bissinger thing, which I may or may not post later.

How enlightened of him. Extremism, in any form and from any corner, is bad.)
