From The NY Times

The Islanders and Brett Yormark, chief executive of Brooklyn Sports and Entertainment and the Nets, announced Tuesday that the Isles would play the Devils in an Oct. 2 exhibition at the new Brooklyn Nets basketball arena.

The announcement serves as another shot across the bow of Nassau County politicians and voters, who have rejected every effort by Islanders owner Charles Wang to upgrade or replace Nassau Coliseum, the club’s 40-year-old home.

From The Fith Down

You might remember that Brett Favre was the leader in consecutive starts. And then that Peyton Manning took over that title.

But you may not know that Eli Manning is the new leader among active players, at 119 games. Yes, he’s the N.F.L.’s iron man.

And his durability was on display against a ferocious Niners defense on Sunday. He was sacked six times and hit many more. In some instances, he was simply mangled.

Texas Rangers Keep Busy

January 20, 2012 By: Katchop Category: MLB

The Texas Rangers have already signed Yu Darvish,  and now they have their sites on Prince Fielder.

They basically flipped C.J. Wilson for Darvish. Their lineup remains better than the Angels’, even with Albert Pujols in Anaheim. Their bullpen is deeper, though the ninth inning – Joe Nathan in Arlington, Jordan Walden in Anaheim – is sketchy for both.

Imagine, then, what Fielder could do for the Rangers, for an already muscular offense, and then what the Rangers could do for Fielder.

After all, he’s done his time in the market where everything must go right in order to contend. And he has his suitors in Seattle, Washington, maybe Chicago (North Side), Miami, Baltimore and Toronto. Through no fault of his own, it appears his timing is simply crummy. The Yankees and Red Sox are both set at first base and perhaps diving for the luxury tax threshold.

For the second time in four years, the Giants strutted away from Green Bay with a playoff victory, shocking the reigning Super Bowl champions 37-20 in the divisional round Sunday.

Now they’re headed to the NFC Championship game in San Francisco next Sunday, bursting with confidence that they can win another road game and get back to the Super Bowl.

“This team knows how to win on the road,” defensive end Justin Tuck said. “It seems like right now, it’s our time.”

Tim Tebow led the Denver Broncos to another miracle victory.

Praise Tebow!

Praise Tebow!

From The NY Times

Tim Tebow, whose stature as a football and social phenomenon was built on the foundation of fourth-quarter comebacks, completed a 20-yard pass that Demaryius Thomas turned into an 80-yard touchdown on the first play of overtime Sunday, giving the Denver Broncos a 29-23 upset of the Pittsburgh Steelers in their A.F.C. wild-card game.

Houston Rockets Fans Are Unhappy

January 06, 2012 By: Katchop Category: NBA

The Houston Rockets have not looked good.

Houston Rockets' Kevin McHale is taller than Frankenstein.

But there are some significant problems with this Rockets team that opposing teams have exposed in the first six games.The biggest problem (bizarrely, for the Rockets) is the offense [edit: okay, maybe it's the defense]. There are other problems with the Rockets, definitely: Scola’s rebounding numbers are way down, Lowry’s is really awesome but his turnover numbers are dangerously high, and Jordan Hill seems to be our best non-Scola big man right now. But the single biggest difference between the 2011 Rockets (winning record!) and the 2012 Rockets (we’ll see!) is the offense.

From The Jet Press

Some teammates reportedly called Holmes a cancer to the team that quit weeks ago. They also compared his behavior to that of a 10 year old child.

LaDainian Tomlinson, for one, was not afraid to speak his mind.

“Let me just say there were some guys in the huddle that were unhappy with Tone’s demeanor,” running back LaDainian Tomlinson said. “When you have a group of guys that’s fighting their butts off, and one guy, for whatever reason, their demeanor’s not with them, you’re going to get some guys to say something to him and tell them how they feel. That’s what you got today.”
