Can't Miss Television

This morning at the end of ESPN First Take, host Jay Crawford made all the Superbowl hype worth it.

Crawford let the viewers know that tomorrows guests will be John Elway, Dan Marino, and Joe Montana. Seriously I can't describe how lucky Jay Crawford is to get these three together. I also have to say this qualifies as can't miss television. I will gladly wade through all the pre-Superbowl hype for the gold nuggets like this.

I have to say that the Joe's Diner, series of commercials that have been running all year long are hilarious. I hope they touch on that tomorrow. Though they may not with all three of them there due to the fact that all Marino would have to talk about as far as commercials is Nutri System, and Elway only has local Denver commercials for his car dealerships.

I guess instead of commercials they could discuss the fact that those are three of the greatest quarterbacks of all time and easily the top three in the modern era. Slightly more important than Nutri System

Johann Santana Will Get Whatever He Wants From the Mets

ESPN is reporting that we should not expect the Johann Santana to the Mets deal to be finalized by Friday Morning. I have no idea why they picked that as a when we shouldn't expect a deal, when they are the ones reporting in the next breath that the cut off for the deal to be negotiated is by 5pm Friday evening.

All of this anticipation and conjecture is waste though. The Mets and Santana will come to a deal. I know this and I can even tell you what the deal will be-- WHATEVER SANTANA WANTS IT TO BE.

Let's remember that Mets nation is in a foul mood after the historic collapse that ended last season, with them watching the playoffs. Now they have the best offseason free agent on the way to NY, their NY. So that would solve the problem of all those ugly late season losses. Mr. Met is shining up that big white head of his right now, and Mets fans are salivating at the possibilities.

So now when Santana and his people are holding their tough line on the 6 years they want and the Mets give em that stern look and say it's 5 years or it's no deal. Do you really expect Santana to buy the Mets willingness to turn around at this point and tell their fans "you know that championship that you could feel in your hands, now you can feel it slipping through your fingers"

Not gonna happen, see you in New York Santana.

Kidd Three-Way Deal Isn't Gonna Happen

Ok so there is a lot going on with this deal but here is the short version of the ESPN Breakdown
Portland Gets: Mav's guard Devin Harris and forward Brandon Bass
New Jersey Gets: Draft picks, Cash, Mavs' Jerry Stackhouse, and Portlands' Travis Outlaw, Channing Frye and Jarrett Jack
Dallas Gets: Kidd

You have got to be kidding me. Portland is not in a rebuiling mode, they do not need to cut salary, in the way that the Nets do. So why would the Trailblazers trade away Outlaw, Frye, and Jack for Harris and Bass. This just doesn't make sense for Portland, don't expect to see this deal happen the way it looks right now.

Outside Shot
Just have to relay a Trailblazers bit I heard recently. When Trailblazers assistant coach, and Trailblazers legend, Maurice Lucas was asked why there was some much trash talking back and forth on the court today. Lucas calmly threw back, "because in my time it was only a $50 fine if you socked a guy in the face"

Superbowl Media Day

So Superbowl Media day has come and gone, given time to think about it I have come to one sure realization.

There is a reason this isn't called Player Relations day. This really is a day for the Media. I don't mean media in the traditional sense of doing their job and being a conduit for the public. No it is more an instance of them being real fans. Check out the end of this post by David Kindervater of EveryMorningQuarterback( I just found it refreshing to see him going "Look I'm on the news, I'm on the news" Newsflash, you ARE the news.

I am sure some of the older guys, who have been there a few times, don't see it with the same joy. But I really enjoy the perspective of a guy like David who writes well, has professional experience, and is still a fan.

Now we only have less than 4 days until kick off.
