Posted by SuckaFish

There is one, and only one, reason to watch the Nats this weekend. They’ve already locked up the number one spot in the Bryce Harper Sweepstakes.

And Now I Hate Chris Borque

Posted by SuckaFish

I know none of this was his fault. He should be Rockin’ the Red in Boston Thursday night. The Caps couldn’t get anyone to take Michael Nylander’s incredibly huge salary and so they had to waive Borque for cap reasons. But now that is all forgotten and he is one of them.

Caps Waive Chris Borque

Posted by SuckaFish

Well that didn’t last very long. One day after being told he had made the roster and would start the season in the NHL, the Caps placed Chris Borque on waivers because of salary cap concerns. The team has been unable to trade Michael Nylander and his massive contract which forced this move. If Borque isn’t claimed by another team he’ll likely head to Hershey.

Cowboys 21, Panthers 7: Felix Jones Is Unstoppable, Stopped

Posted by SuckaFish

Only two things can stop Felix Jones, injuries and Jason Garrett. Both did Monday night.

Jones carried the ball eight times for 94 yards, an 11.8 average. So why did he only get eight carries? He left the game in the third quarter with a left knee strain but he should have had 20-25 touches by then.

The Cowboys scored zero points in the first half. They twice had the ball at the one before settling for field goals. And still they beat the Carolina Panthers 21-7 for their first win in Cowboys Stadium.

Horned Frogs Rise to #11 AP; #10 Coaches Poll

Once again, the nation, including The New York Times is taking notice of the TCU Horned Frogs and other possible BCS busters:


….In fact, Houston, Texas Christian and Boise State are not going anywhere. For the first time in the Bowl Championship Series era, teams from outside the six so-called power conferences can be considered legitimate threats for the national title.
