  1. 2 WS Championships and 5 appearnces is not all that bad, at least for those of us old enough to have seen them. But when I think about myself as a fan, I had it pretty good when I was growing up. By the time I was 25 years old, I got to see the Mets win 2x, the Islanders win 4x, Jets win once and the Knicks 2x. Even got to see my undergrad college basketball team make a Cinderella appearance in the Final 4 (Penn Quakers in 1979, until we ran into Magic Johnson and Michigan State). And since then, the last 35 years, nothing, nada, zilch. Couple of close calls. Was in Wrigley when the Mets swept the Cubs in 2015. Made a bucket list trip out to Pasadena to see the Dawgs win the Rose Bowl a few years ago. While those were great experiences at the time, they both ring a bit hollow since neither team sealed the deal in the next step. At least you know we are not bandwagoners. Been around these teams forever, and we are not going anywhere.
  2. Sad truth is that there are quite a few other names that can be in the Jets discussion: Dee Milliner, Russel Carter, Blair Thomas, Carl Barzilauskas (yes, I am old, I remmber picking him 6 overall) are other top 10 picks that are in the discussion. As to the NFL, I think Mandarich gets a raw deal becuase he never lived up to the hype, but he still started about 5 seasons in the NFL, which is more than other top 3 picks like Jason Smith, Akili Smith, Charles Rogers, Bruce Pickens, etc. Other guys who busted but are largely forgotten becuase they did not get the hype that Mandarch got coming out of college. I would probably add Brian Bosworth to the all time bust discussion ahead of Mandarich. Similarly hyped out of school, but Mandarch played more than twice the number of games and seasons as Bosworth.
  3. I don't know what to think anymore. There is so much smoke that there has to be some fire burning somewhere. And it seems to make sense that Jamal and his agents want the extension now, for the same reasons the Jets would not want to do it. Uncertainty over the cap next year. If it may go down, if I am Jamal, I want my extension done now. And if Jets won't do it, then I get wanting a trade to a team that might. If I am the Jets, I want to know what cap situation looks like next year before doing any big $$$ extensions. As of now, I am pretty sure the only 1st rounder from the 2017 draft class to be extended is McCaffrey. Will be interesting to see how all this plays out, not only with Jamal, but other members of that draft class as well.
  4. Yup. Found this in an article on NHL.com posted today. If camp is not likely to start until mid-July, they are not playing until August: https://www.nhl.com/news/nhl-plans-to-return-with-24-team-stanley-cup-playoffs/c-317031010 "Training camps could open in mid-July as part of Phase 3 of the Return to Play Plan, and Commissioner Bettman said the NHL believes the qualifying and first two rounds of the playoffs can be completed in a little more than a month."
  5. Think that is still TBD. Basically, just the league and NHLPA agreed on a format to resume the season at a later date. Don't think resumption of play is likely for another month or two at the earliest.
