Cleaning Out The Fridge

Bold Sports Talk is in dire need for some change. Here is introducing you a new Monday routine for you: Cleaning out the refrigerator. My mind sometimes is overflowing with sports thoughts as I lay in my bed at night and in the morning I often forget them. It’s time to clean up the mess.

A) There has been discussion of sending the Houston Astros (now of the NL Central) to the AL West in order to make both the National and American Leagues 15 teams each. This would mean there would be at least one interleague play series going on at all times. If Babe Ruth knew this was going on, he would flip over in his grave.

This move for baseball would be an idiotic one. A large portion of the fan base is over 55-years-old and majority of those viewers hate the idea of interleague play. They, like myself, love the idea of dream matchups – Yankees vs. Dodgers, Red Sox vs. Cubs – as an outcome only if both teams make the World Series. Having interleague play every single night ruins how sacred and historic the World Series once was.

I get that the argument is to make the MLB a fairer place, but why now? Baseball has never had a fair playing field. The Yankees and Red Sox are allowed to outspend everyone. Every stadium is a different length. The AL is allowed to have a DH. The refusal of this sport to conform to its competition is what makes it so great.

B) You can’t ignore the success of the USA women’s soccer team, and here is an excellent measurement. Sunday’s epic battle between Japan and America produced the most tweets per second, eclipsing both Osama bin Laden’s death and the Royal Wedding.

Either you were watching the game, or you were infuriated by the amount of attention it was getting. As a naysayer of soccer, even I couldn’t resist watching. Soccer in America has had some monumental moral victories this decade in gaining new fans. Now where can they take it from here? How will the executives at Fifa harness this energy to make soccer more of a fixture in the US even when a world cup isn’t going on? I have no idea how to market a sport as unexciting as soccer. They need to implement social media into viewing a game.

C)  Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder often receives the blame on a large issue that he didn’t create: Fed Ex Field. Each and every year fans will rise up against their berated owner shouting that he moved the Redskins out of DC and will be forever cursed. Actually, Snyder inherited Jack Kent Cooke stadium in only its second year after buying the team in 1998.

Those close to Snyder always have said it was a goal of his to move the team back to the city. My question to you is what will happen first, a trip to the Super Bowl or a new Redskins stadium? Actually don’t answer that…

Saudi AraabiaAntyle Holenderskie.Pendersen also claims that will some reports say which Hermes asked Birkin to draw her dream bag, and then charged her $5, 000 for that finished product.The tradition of awarding such titles was continued by the World Chess Federation (FIDE), founded in 1924 in Paris.Dividend volatile as the oil price fluctuates.Pretty logical.I actually saw a pretty 18 year old with a bag worth over 1k (I know this because she told her friends over a bottle of French champagne).Or just books that deal with 1970s NYC. bolsos louis vuitton
