Retiring Numbers and other Tuesday afternoon thoughts

Sitting at home on a Tuesday afternoon and I'm thinking about the following....

All the Oakland A's and 6 of the Chicago White Sox are wearing Jackie Robinson's #42 this afternoon. Doesn't that do more to honor the great ballplayer than not seeing his number on the back of a jersey in a baseball park the rest of the year?

Who will Mount St. Mary's ink to a National Letter of Intent tomorrow? Lamar Trice the point guard from near Philly seems like a definite. Expect a front line player to be the other. I wouldn't be surprised if the pipeline from Virginia continues for the Mounties.

Is the announcement of the NFL schedule really that big of deal? The sports leader had a special sportscenter for it all. And watching this ballgame all they keep talking about is find out the Bears schedule on Sports Tonight later tonight. I mean the teams are going to play every Sunday. Just seems a little bit of overkill to get too excited about the schedule right now. Although, at least it broke the momentum of two months of NFL draft coverage.

Great outing by White Sox hurler John Danks this afternoon? He just left after 7 and two thirds strong innings. He's another of those pitchers who came to the Majors early and seemed to be given up on by someone and now is having some success at a more mature age.
