CLEVELAND is the most tortured sports city, if anyone has the right to complain about anything we do, no major sports titles since 1964 browns, yes this is an off topic statement but i just couldnt resist

Feel free to show me where I used injuries as an excuse.
I said we're not in a bad position, didn't make excuses at all unlike your long post listing every headache (in or out of a suitcase) and hangnail the Angies had last year as the reason why a superior team blew them off the field with very little effort.

Injuries are part of sports, the best organizations (read that New England Patriots) find ways to overcome them and win in spite of them, the Angies failed at that. We'll see how the Red Sox fare this year, but I am not and will not use the injuries as an excuse, if they fail to make the playoffs, its because mainly of a sorry bullpen and going to the young arms from AA and AAA too late. If they make it in spite of things, its a testament to the talent of players like David Ortiz, Tim Wakefield, Manny Ramirez, Johnny Damon, Jason Varitek and others.

Yeah, but Philadelphia deserves it. Cleveland doesn't.

speaking of Bill Simmons has anyone here checked out his book or going to see him on his book tour? He's at Holy Cross tonight giving a talk. I may swing by to check it out.

Well, I just moved to LA two months ago after living for 10 years in Boston.

LA's problem is that the fans here are a bunch of posers -- I've seen more Yankees hats here than Angels and Dodgers hats combined. And of course, there was that immortal comment made by a Sports Guy writer: "Let me get this straight. Jack Nicholson is a Laker fan AND a Yankee fan? Can we paint a mustache on him and call him Hitler?"

But Philly -- booing a temporarily paralyzed football player, that's pretty low. (Even if it was Michael Irvin.)

Well, to be fair to LA, a lot of people who live there are people who moved from other cities. I'm sure some people see you when you're wearing a Red Sox hat and think you're a "poser."

True. But I'm pretty sure that less than 50% of LA consists of native New Yorkers.

People from New York and Boston tend to end up all over the country. But when Yankees merchandise (or Sox gear, though I haven't seen too much of it) outsells local team gear, that's sick.

One Eleven Chophouse is supposed to be really good. Pricey, but worth it.

I've heard good things about Union Station and the Sole Proprietor.
