Dynasties, Part II

Speaking of dynasties coming to a screeching halt...

This weekend the Syracuse Orange lacrosse team lost in the 1st round of the NCAA tournament. That loss broke a string of TWENTY-TWO consecutive Finals Fours, dating back to 1982. Over that stretch they won NINE championships. I think that streak has to rank right up there with the Yankees of the 30s and 50s, the Celtics and UCLA in the 60s, and the Canadiens of the 60s and 70s. In this context, what we keep calling a dynasty with my beloved Patriots is really just a nice winning streak (and one that, sadly, looks like it may have run its course).

Meanwhile, Tino seems to be the only guy on the NYY team who wants to make sure that doesn't happen to the Yankees. Blue, he's a one-man team!! They got back to .500 in a hurry, but still feasting on the carcass of the AL Worst. The O's barely avoided a sweep in Chitown to barely stay on top. And has anyone noticed the J's aren't going anywhere? Their starting pitching has been the best in the division so far...

Right, Blue? BLUE???

SOX UP: Wade Miller, Timlin, Manny (400! And 600 looks do-able...)
SOX DOWN: Halama

Blue has his head stuck in the sand or some other place, fearing that if he posts any comment his beloved Yanks will wake up and realize what they are doing. Come on Tino, all some pitcher has to do is knock him on his butt like they did in the N L and he's history. Big unit with no K's against the A's Big trouble. Can't wait till they play real teams.
