Saturday 09/13 (Very) Quickie

If tonight's USC-OSU game can be half as dramatic and exciting as last night's South Florida win over Kansas, we will be all set.

(In terms of impressive single wins this season, I'd put USF's in the Top 5 -- USC-OSU winner, East Carolina over West Virginia, UCLA over Tennessee and I'll leave open one slot because I know I'm overlooking someone. But I think USF vaults into the Top 10 -- at least my Top 10.)

Meanwhile, Beanie Wells won't play tonight. Yeah, right. I'll believe it when I see it, but if it's just some Jim Tressel attempt at mind-games, it will just make USC angrier.

For those of you who thought that my call-out of the Vince Young situation the day after as suicide-related was inappropriate, even his therapist says "suicide" was a concern.

Brandon Webb wins 20th: He's the first NL pitcher to get to 20 wins, but I'd still rank him in Cy balloting behind both CC Sabathia and Tim Lincecum.

Cliff Lee wins No. 22: Now, here there is no debate about who will win the AL Cy. It's a pretty remarkable season Lee is putting together (even if he is feasting on crappy teams).

And that was mostly it for MLB last night -- rain everywhere. (But not enough that the Red Sox couldn't beat the Jays, putting one more game between them and their AL East rival for the Wild Card.)

SNL Tonight: Michael Phelps hosts the season premiere. I am maintaining very low expectations, but I certainly hope Tina Fey is going to be doing Sarah Palin.

Business: The Giants and Jets are not talking with German company Allianz about stadium naming-rights anymore. It was bad enough that they started talking with them in the first place.

More later.
