It’s 4 in the morning and you all know what that means: posting in the middle of the night! Who needs quality, I’m awake so let’s go for it. Hey, how often do you get to hear that?

Anyway, it’s been a while since I’ve talked sports but there’s a convergence of fun events so here we go.

Baseball season is here! I think it’s finally time to cancel my Netflix subscription as I’ve had the same DVD since February and now with the six game a week schedule I can see I’ll never get to it. Fortunately, I’m 30 yards from a Blockbuster. Anyway, Andy Pettitte is back! And he blew chunks! I’m going to give him more time, though. Cory Lidle, however, is still dead.

Hockey playoff season is coming! And the Rangers made the playoffs! I know, only like two teams don’t make the playoffs but one of them, until a really short time ago, was going to be the Rangers. But they clinched last night (I guess it’s officially last night now) and I’m just thrilled. Definitely must cancel Netflix.

Davis Cup tennis is back! Again! I seriously can’t get the schedule of this thing but I think it’s this weekend and you know what that means: I found David Nalbandian! But even more exciting, should this be your home team, is that Israel is actually in it (they’re playing Italy – lucky Italy). I know, they have less chance of going all the way than Cory Lidle does of pitching but I’m proud anyway. Kadima!

Team Argentina: That’s David, just to the left of the Incredible Hulk.




Here’s the only picture the Davis Cup site provided of the Israeli team. Ooooh, aaaaah.



Oh, and the US is playing Spain. That’s all you’ll get if you’re watching American TV. What, there are other countries?

What? There are other sports?

 
Alex says

Every time I try to go find out where in the world David Nalbandian is, it ends up badly for him. Lucky for him, I only find him when he’s playing tennis, and not, say, on vacation rock-climbing, or something. Nevertheless, I think I’d better stay away from that page for Becca’s sake.

Go Yanks!

Petitte is just nervous without his little friend Roger. Give him time.

 
Becca says

RN, outside Oklahoma. Look outside Oklahoma. :P

Alex, I found some photos which seem to indicate he does enjoy other pastimes but I’m about his tennis. If only he were more about his tennis. He already lost today, dur.

KP, I thought he was nervous without his dome, and with actual weather, but you could be right.

 
Alex says

Yeah, I knew that, Becca. I went from “Where in the World…?” to the Davis Cup page.

Perhaps you need a “Where in the World is Everybody Who’s Scheduled to Play Against David Nalbandian?” page. I could go look at that, and jinx them.

I briefly considered the possibility that this isn’t about me at all–that my knowing or not knowing where D.N. is actually has no bearing whatsoever on how well he plays tennis. But that just seems preposterous.

 
Becca says

Just be safe and jinx any player from Sweden. Argentina is down 0-2; oh, the humanity!

 
Soxy says

Have you all met my new best friend, Dice-K????

And the Bruins were one the two teams who didn’t make it to the playoffs. Winter sports in Boston suck.

 
Alex says

Soxy, it could be worse. You could be in Washington, where the baseball team sucks, too. Right now, they’re on a pace to go 27-135 in 2007.

But at least, after all these years, they’re here.

And they’re not owned by Peter Angelos.

 
Becca says

I’m not happy with Japanese pitchers right now, sorry Soxy.

But you do have that cleaner than clean Metro, Alex.
