Monday Random Thoughts...
The Cubs are looking to get a lift with the recent call up of Jae-Kuk Ryu to help bolster up their bullpen. Many people are just hearing of Ryu for the first time, and I thought that I was one of them until a story was brought to my attention about his nefarious exploits while with the Single-A Daytona squad. Jae-Kuk is the nature hater who was arrested and fined for throwing a baseball at an osprey that was sitting atop a foul pole during practice. Apparently over in Korea they do not understand that it is frown upon to throw a baseball at a living thing. Just another solid callup for the franchise that is becoming the 2nd team in the second city.
Sad news for the football world as Doug Flutie has officially decided to hang up the spikes and retire to the booth to broadcast college football games for ESPN and ABC. Even sadder than that is the fact that his one lasting NFL defining moment was a 2 point drop kick conversion in his last regular season game.
So much for the Rasheed "guarantee" tonight...that's the last time that I take anything that he has to say at face value. Seven point in 3-13 shooting is one hell of a way to put your money where your mouth is.
