Wednesday's Works

-If you don't think the players are taking the World Baseball Classic seriously, then you missed the fantastic game between the Dominican Republic, and the Netherlands. The Netherlands defeated the Dominican team in the first meeting of the WBC for both teams. Now the winner between the teams will advance to Miami for the 2nd round. No way the Dutch team can pull off an upset of such a star studded Dominican team right? WRONG! Thanks to a throwing error on a pick off play by Carlos Marmol, and an error with 2 out in the 11th by Willy Aybar, Netherlands is going to Miami. What a great game.

-It appears that the San Diego Chargers, and running back LaDanian Tomlinson have agreed to terms on a new deal that will keep the fantasy football legend in SoCal for the next 3 years. Tomlinson agreed to the restructured deal to help allow the Chargers to have more cap room, and thus have the ability to improve the club for the future.

-Oh, the Clippers. You would think a 19 point lead at home in the 4th quarter would be enough for these jokers to win a game. Not so much. LeBron James recorded a triple-double and the Cavs came back to win 87-83. It was only the 3rd game of the season that the Clippers have sold out, and it was the first that wasn't against the Lakers. Eeks. Sorry Mr. Sterling.

-I told you in Tuesday's post that the Lakers had resolved to violence in their loss at Portland on Monday night. Well a suspension has come down from New York. Lamar Odom, not Trevor Ariza has been suspended for 1 game. Odom was suspended by the league for leaving the bench area. While he did not escalate the situation he leave the vicinity of the bench earning himself a one game suspension without pay. Rudy Fernandez, the recipiant of the flagrant foul has been released from a local hospital.

-Sports Illustrated gives us a nice illustrated (what else?) view of Shaquille O'Neal and his greatest quotes throughout his career.

-It appears that America is still happy with the election of Barack Obama. That's probably a good thing. It probably wouldn't be a good sign of things to come, if 50 days into his Presidency he wasn't liked by the public that voted for him. Just a quick FYI, at the same time of George W. Bush's Presidency his approval rating was 3% lower than Obama's is now. Where's Keith Olbermann when I need him?

-Jay Leno is giving back to the people of Detroit. Good for the Chin.
