Quick Hits

By SonDog

This just in: 52 executives indeed jumped off the rooftops at ESPN and FOX after the Yankees and Red Sox lost in the first round.

And we're not about to mention how great the ratings are anywhere other than the East Coast: We're bound to hear loads over the next three weeks about the poor television ratings for Angels/White Sox & Astros/Cardinals. Through the fifth inning of game 1, it's already been mentioned 23 times as a foregone conclusion.

Come to think of it, maybe I'll stick it in the back of the closet with my breakdancing outfit: Yes, I can admit that I bought an Alex Smith jersey last week.

Yes! On second thought, No! Or, maybe, Yes!: 49ers coach Mike Nolan has shown an incredible lack of willingness to stick to his decisions this year. Remember the, "Tim Rattay is our starter for this entire season," quote from week 1? That lasted four weeks.

I'm betting Warren Sapp never chased down Randy Moss during the first day of training camp: An announcer during the Kings/Mavericks pre-season game used the line, "Oh, what an EXPLOSIVE move by Keith Van Horn to blow past Shareef Abdur-Rahim!" Anytime Van Horn is "exploding" past you, there's a good chance you're not doing your job defensively.
