When Bloggers Get New Jobs....
....daytime updates become scarce until one learns exactly what he can get away with. So don't expect too much for the early weeks of January, but we'll see what we can do.
The sports posts on SoF have been virtually non-existent as of late, mostly because I'm a Giants fan, don't know enough about the NBA to be overly critical, and the Mets Hot Stove has been relatively cold (although that will likely change sooner than later).
That said, big props are in order to Eli Manning and Tiki Barber for making the final Giants game of the season extremely fun to watch, in spite of the complete lack of post-season implications. The latter eclipsed Giant great Rodney Hampton in total yardage, and broke Joe Morris's single season running record (set back in '86) on the final offensive play of the game; a draw play that only became such after an intelligent audible on the part of Manning. Homeboy notched his first NFL win after a six game losing streak (at least three of which really should have been W's) and only stands to improve.
I have nothing against the NBA, but I can't help but think that this winter will be that much colder without the NHL.
