It’s All Opinions Day
They’re only opinions, but at least they’re all mine:
Yes, the Rangers are in great shape now, and yes, Josh Hamilton is more imposing than anybody in the Yankees’ big payroll lineup . . .
We all knew the Giants’ Cody Ross would be the big hero of the NLCS, right? Yeah, sure we did . . .
All you have to know about the first BCS standings is that five of its computer nerds rank Oregon 9th, 7th, 9th, 8th and 11th, respectively . . .
And tell me, what exactly has Oklahoma done to be ranked No. 1? . . .
The NFL has to start suspending players for those vicious helmet hits. And please, don’t try to tell me most of them aren’t intentional . . .
Readers of this blog aren’t surprised at USC freshman Robert Woods’ new star status. We’ve been alerting you to him since early August . . .
If UCLA caught Texas at the right time, the Bruins may be catching Oregon at the wrong time . . .
Anybody else stay up late to watch the finish of that Washington-Oregon State 35-34 overtime game? It was about as exciting as they come . . .
The scary part for the Chargers is that they’ve been losing all these games in the easy part of their schedule . . .
The Mike Williams resurgence in Seattle vindicates those of us who thought he was the best player in the country his final year at USC . . .
If the Dodgers have no money, how did they just re-sign Ted Lilly for three years? . . .
I don’t remember scouts gushing about any minor league player the way they’re currently gushing about the Angels’ Mike Trout . . .
After divesting himself of his minor share of the Lakers, don’t be surprised if Magic Johnson turns around and buys part of another team, like, oh, say the Detroit Pistons . . .
I know it’s only preseason, but I was the Clippers, I’d be a little nervous about these new injuries to Blake Griffin . . .
You know Fox is just thrilled by the prospect of a San Francisco-Texas World Series . . .
Having no quarterback is a problem. Having both Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick to play the position isn’t . . .
You don’t think Deion Branch wishes he never left New England, do you? . . .
I know newspapers are on the way out, but let me say this about the Boston Globe: It still has the best Sunday sports section going . . .
I don’t know what’s happened to Junior Seau, but I sure hope he gets some help. He was always a class act whenever I dealt with him at USC and the Chargers . . .
Having Rodney Harrison comment on the NFL’s late hitters is like having Cher criticize the outlandish outfits of Lady Gaga . . .
