    For the Yankees fan I’ll give the gold to the 2nd half DD Gregorious and the lump of coal to CC. Silver is to Arod’s bounce back and controversy free season.

    Peter- Unless I’ve missed something, you’ve been strangely, nay ominously silent about your double turf sports stories. Harvard (Fitzpatrick) and the Jets. (NY) Jets currently leading the Patriots 17-3. I’m in a town called Bloomington-Normal in the heartland, Abe Lincoln country, Illinois, awaiting the Seahawks game which I plan on viewing on my computer via Slingbox.
