There haven’t been many times that I have been speechless with the Mets in a good way (I have been speechless over bad Mets baseball roughly 36,769 times). But after Wednesday night’s 16-9 win over Detroit it took me several minutes to even begin to think about what to write.

The Mets 16-run performance gives them a franchise record 52 in the past 4 games.

A quick recap of the game: The Mets jumped out to an 8-2 lead, picking up right where they left off last night, as their bats remained hotter than we have ever seen the franchise have. Unlike the series opener though, the Tigers fought back on Wednesday with a barrage of 5 homeruns, and pulled within 8-6 in the 6th. Miguel Cabrera had 2 of those bombs, including a 450 foot shot to left center.

Well everyone in their brother is going to this meeting with the NCAA in Indianapolis, Indiana except representatives from the two North Dakota tribes (Standing Rock and Spirit Lake). This slight doesn’t make any sense to me what-so-ever.

So if you going to the NCAA main office in Indianapolis, Indiana to make the case for the University of North Dakota to retain the Fighting Sioux nickname because you don’t think it’s hostile and abusive, wouldn’t you include a few of the people of Native American decent (just to name a few, Archie D. Fool Bear, Eunice Davidson) that broke their backs trying to get their respective tribes to vote on the Fighting Sioux nickname?

Chuck Haga, Grand Forks Herald — Gov. Jack Dalrymple will lead a North Dakota delegation July 25 to Indianapolis to meet with leaders of the NCAA, hoping to persuade the athletics association to alter its stance regarding UND and the Fighting Sioux nickname.

Derived from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imag...Image via WikipediaTom Oats has a really good article on Madison.com that has been floating around the internet this past week about the issues surrounding the formation of the Big Ten Hockey Farce Conference. It’s a must read if you haven’t seen it yet.

I think I have brought up some of the same issues about the Big Ten Hockey Conference and that there was a very good possibility that the BTHC formation would have a

As the Mets got to Detroit, finally back at .500, coming off a series victory over the Rangers, they had scored 22 runs in their last two games with no home runs.  They were facing a first place team in the AL Central, and knew that wins wouldn’t come easy.  RA Dickey had been plagued all season by pitching incredible games with no run support.  Well, the lack of run support and lack of big bats were not even thoughts in their 14-3 pummeling of the Tigers.

Jose Reyes led off his 1,000th career game with his 114th base hit of the season, and after Willie Harris popped out and Beltran hit a long fly ball, a failed pick off attempt allowed Reyes to take second.  Reyes came around on a Daniel Murphy double, and the Mets struck early, and they would strike often.  Following Murphy’s lead, Pagan doubled to bring him home.  After a Jason Bay groundout, the half-inning was over, but the Mets were already up 2-0.  Although the bottom of the inning wasn’t entirely easy for RA Dickey, allowing 3 singles, no runs would come home for the Tigers.

WongThat guy?

Wong.

He’s the Cardinals first round draft pick and Twitter has been mature about the pick:

Perhaps that was really Tracey Morgan posing as Kaisa… but you get the point — Wong is funny.

Funny because it rhymes with dong.Read the full original article…

 This is beginning to sound a lot like “What did you know and when did you know it?” To me it’s also beginning to resemble a Charlie Foxtrot. I wonder what would happen if Al Carlson found out one of the University Presidents from

For the last two weeks, the day job had me at Wayfarer Camp, so I wasn’t able to keep up with NFL news. One of the items I missed was the fact that Chad Pennington is leaving the field – at least for a year – to move to the announcing booth with Fox. Below are some thoughts on the move; you can see how Pennington’s addition compares to other announcing moves in this updated post.

Darrell McClover came into the NFL in 2004 as a seventh-round pick out of the University of Miami by the New York Jets.

McClover spent his first three seasons at the University of Miami playing as a reserve linebacker behind linebackers like Dan Morgan and Chris Campbell. He shined in his senior year playing alongside NFL stars Jonathan Vilma and D.J. Williams.

In McClover’s first season in the NFL he started all 16 games making 15 tackles. Unfortunately he didn’t see any playing time with the Jets  in the 05-06 season and was let go after the season was over.

The Bears signed him that off-season and McClover played in 35 games making 27 tackles as a special teams ace from 2006-2010. McClover never got a shot to start at linebacker for the Bears, but I’m sure the Bears would welcome him back with open arms if the opportunity was there.

The Vancouver Canucks have resigned Hab’s reject, diver and fraud Maxium Lapierre for two more seasons, so Western Conference fans will have to watch his antics of diving and flailing up and down the ice everytime he is touched. That’s all we need in the NHL players that think they are Euro soccer players.

TSN.CA STAFF — The Vancouver Canucks have signed restricted free agent Maxim Lapierre to a two-year deal worth $2-million.

Lapierre scored six goals and six assists in 78 during the regular season last year. He also provided three goals and two assists during the Canucks playoff run.
