Some More Linky Dinks (With VIDEO)

Derek Jeter has been named the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year. Congratulations to him. They've screwed that award up so many times, that it's hard for me to sit here and complain. There were and are other worthy candidates.

In the end, it's more about the compelling story and selling magazines. That's all.

If you haven't heard, Bob Sheppard made it official and hung up his microphone. It would appear then that Paul Olden is now the Yankees' PA Voice. River Avenue Blues picks things up from here with links to articles on Olden.

So let's add a video, from the tribute to him at Yankee Stadium on May 7, 2000. (Linked here)

This was kind USC has UCLA beaten. UCLA calls a timeout as USC is kneeling down to end the game. USC says "screw this" and throws an in-your-face-UCLA touchdown. Deadspin takes over, with video.

Speaking of Deadspin, they're all over showing the not-so-positive side of the Bud Selig years. Mr. Selig is indicating that he will step down as commissioner after the 2012 season. There had to be some good things that happened, right?

Tom Hoffarth wishes Vin Scully a happy 82nd birthday. So do we. We also wish the Great Mo Rivera a happy 40th.

I was all set to tell you about my time on the Walkway Across the Hudson from this past Saturday. However, the most righteous Emperor/Camrade Yamomoto (Mr. CC Slater, that is) walked the path earlier in the day. He saw much of what I saw, and photographed more than I did. So let's link to his post.
