News and Notes, September 5, 2012

Between a Yankees slump with a roster riddled with injuries, the Giants opening their defense of their Super Bowl championship, and the prospect that the only hockey that I’ll see this year will be when I play NHL 13, here we go …

  • Black Confederates in Texas … sound familiar?  It does to Kevin Levin.  Apparently one out of every 3.6 slaves was in Confederate service, which would be important if true.  The commentary about evidence (especially by citing a historical marker) raises all sorts of questions about the researcher and his training, none of which will matter to true believers.
  • The General Lee will not be disfigured after all.
  • The Evil Empire and the Philly Phanatic find a common interest.

Note that no one has highlighted how the Red Sox have fared ever since Kevin Levin moved to Massachusetts.  It isn’t all Bobby Valentine’s fault.

    Oh, it is mostly Valentine’s fault, but you can also blame the lout that hired him.

    As for the Yankees, the championships started in 1781/83, 1814, 1848, 1865, 1898, 1918, and 1923.

    Evil Empire and Philly Phanatic?

    Pessimist. Once the players look at that great option of playing in the KHL and flying in that junk which passes for aircraft, and then figure out how to say “Honey, we’re going to Minsk”, I predict we’ll get a deal. Of course, it will be brokered by the Alpha Dogs (the original 6 plus Vancouver and Philly) and it won’t happen unrtil a few eggs are busted.
