I was under the impression that randy and schilling were very close friends. Enough so that even there families got toghter a decent amount


That's what I've always heard as well...don't read too much into that story, I think it was very inaccurate.

In other news in the sports world, hockey has gone on strike. I have no links for this and none are to be expected anytime soon.

Word has it when hockey season rolls around and no games are being played, they want to see if anyone actually notices...

Or cares. ;-D

I've already simulated next season on NHL '04 so they don't have to bother. Fyi, Red Wings win.

I got my info from Rotoworld:

It appears that Randy Johnson wouldn't mind pitching for the Yankees, but he doubts New York has the prospects to satisfy Arizona in a trade.
[snip]...As for other possible destinations for Johnson; the tall left-hander did not seem all that keen about joining the Red Sox. He still has a rocky relationship with former teammate and current Boston pitcher Curt Schilling...


[shrug] Rotoworld has agents everywhere!

I'm begining to think that we should contract down to the Original Six teams (Montreal, Toronto, Detriot, Chicago, NY and Boston) maybe replace Chicago with Ottawa - and let the rest of you ingrates survive without hockey.

Why do we even bother to spread our wonderful game and lend out our best athletes to those who don't appreciate them? (besides that fact that 90% of the Tampa Bay, Fla/Miam and Arizona fans are Canadians wintering in the south).

We even allowed Gagne, Matt Stairs and Larry Walker stop playing hockey and let them play baseball - and this is the gratitude we get - sighh

Why would you take hockey from Chicago to put in the hell whole known as Ottowa. Chicago is one of the best hockey towns in the states.

I know its not the city, its the ownership. They have destroyed a good franchise.

If they change owners then Chicago can stay in my plans for the restructuring of the NHL. If they keep the same owners then, I'm sorry, I will have to take the franchise away.

Ottawa is an amazing franchise with a rich history and a great fan base.

Because Americans have enough unappreciated teams, and Canadians are better fans. Although, Chicago is one of the few American teams that has a good fan base. But I honestly believe the Winnipeg Jets still have more die-hard fans than the team that replaced them a long time ago; the Phoenix Coyotes. It's a shame that because of sheer population, American cities create more revenue than a city in Canada would........
