It’s All Opinions Day
They’re only opinions, but at least they’re all mine:
It would be sad if Reggie Bush had his Heisman Trophy taken away. He was the most exciting player of his generation . . .
But for all the suffering he has caused to innocent people at USC, it seems as if Reggie should be punished in some manner, and taking back the trophy might be the only thing left . . .
The way the Rangers have been staggering the past couple of weeks, the Angels, even after all their troubles, could have made a real move on them if . . . .only they weren’t the punchless Angels . . .
UCLA football fans can take hope. The Bruins landed the most important recruit of the Rick Neuheisel era when Arizona quarterback Brett Hundley gave his verbal commitment this week. Hundley is regarded as one of the five or six top prep quarterbacks in the country, and based on the clips I’ve seen of him, he’s the perfect guy to run the new “Pistol” offense . . .
Hmmmmmmm. You don’t think Norm Chow’s presence had anything to do with the 6-4, 217-pound Hundley’s decision, do you? . . .
Nice of the Dodgers to be so accomodating to the struggling Padres, huh? . . .
Headline: Randy Moss feels unwanted by the Patriots. Translation: He wants some of the money the team is about to give to quarterback Tom Brady . . .
I can’t remember anyone having a better season with less publicity than Colorado Rockies’ outfielder Carlos Gonzalez. The guy has been phenomenal . . .
Why would anyone want to trade for the Redskins’ Albert Haynesworth? He is the epitome of the modern spoiled athlete . . . .
You have to be happy for Milwaukee’s Trevor Hoffman, one of the classiest people in the business, for finally collecting his 600th save Tuesday night . . .
I know Pete Carroll promised to make changes in Seattle, but this is getting ridiculous . . .
The Phillies and Mr. September, Ryan Howard, appear to be making a big run that should take them all the way back to the World Series . . .
Say it ain’t so, Derek. Mr. Jeter, the esteemed Yankees’ shortstop, currently is hitting in the .260s . . .
Considering some of her early, uh, flashy outfits, it will be interesting to see what Venus Williams wears should she make it to the U.S. Open Finals . . .
Sure glad Matt Leinart waited and took his time before signing with a new team. Really, what was THAT? . . .
All those Rich Rodriguez bashers at Michigan might have to quiet down now that the coach has found his kind of quarterback in Ann Arbor . . .
Tell me, is the NASCAR season over, or is it just starting? I can never keep up . . .
The no tackling edict is continuing at USC practices. Trojans fans just hope it doesn’t continue in games . . .
