The Yankees have long been the poster child for spending at all cost to win a championship. When the winter meetings would go on in past years you could always count on the Yankees making a big splash with a shiney new toy. Those years are past and the Boss is gone, and his two snot nosed sons are at the helm now. I am the first to admit the spending ways of the past weren't always the smartest. At least George did everything in his power to put the best team possible on the field. Now his sons Hal and Hank are dead set at getting the Yankees to this 189 million payroll. Their 'fiscal cliff' if you would allow me. I am shocked because these are the same two nit wits that approved the A- Rod deal,(George was still around but that deal was all Hal and Hank) and that has turned out great! Stuck with that pile of cow dung for 5 more years if he plays again, and don't get me wrong I won't lose sleep if I don't have to see that purple lipped jerk in pinstripes ever again. Sorry I digress. I am all for smart spending but if you have a chance to sign a superstar you do it! You are the freaking Yankees for Petes sake. I will be holding my breath the next few weeks, months, years to see how these two boobs run the ship. If they procede down the road they are going I am afraid of where it will lead. Hopefully one of them decides to channel their father and start using their head and their wallet. If the Yankees start acting like the Mets I don't think I want to live in a baseball world like that. Come on Hank and Hall you are the Yankees snap out of it and start acting like it! Only time will tell, and all you that are reading this saying "Casey you're just a spoiled Yankees fan tough luck pal." Well guess what you're right I am spoiled! It's the Yankees they don't slum around watching payroll, or hoping to land the star. They get the Star, and run through the league on their way to the post season. That crap 'hoping for talent' is for the rest of the league. Not the Yankees so Hank and Hal get it your head out and start acting like George......man I never thought I would ever say that. With that said 112 days til opening day so raise your glass and let the countdown begin.

Well I left my blog vacant for over a year for that funny reason of not having a computer. I have one now and am pretty pumped up about it so I can get to this blog far more often. We are coming up on the Heisman Trophy Award and the debate has already begun. You have plenty of candidates for the trophy but to me there is only one that is worthy. Let me start this off with saying I am not a Notre Dame fan, in fact I am the opposite. I can't stand the freaking gold domers, I have never liked them and I never will! I only hate one team more than them, that's for another day. So I wanted to set that straight before I set out to talk about the only choice for the Heisman Trophy. Since you read that tirade on Notre Dame you must expect me to tell you my choice is not Manti Te'o. Well you're wrong, he is and should be the only one. All the other young men have had nice years but have any of them elevated their team to a perfect record? Manti has taken an average Notre Dame offense and put them on his back. He is the best defensive player in the country and it's not even close. The Heisman Trophy has never been won by a pure defensive player, the last to win was Charles Woodsen, but he also returned punts. This young man Te'o is everything that is right with college football. All the other candidates are good but not great. This is the year for a defensive player to win the award. Notre Dame is undefeated and playing in the National Championship. Without him, the Irish lose at least 4 to 5 games easy. No other team is undefeated and the Irish are, and Te'o is the main reason they are. What he has gone through off the field in losing his Grandma and Girlfriend in the same week and still leading the Irish is impressive. He is the leader of that team and where he goes, so does the team. If Manti does not win the award the Heisman is a JOKE! That's right a joke you might as well call it the Heisman Offensive Trophy. No other player means more to their team than Manti does to his. I will lose what little respect I have for Heisman voters completely. Once again this is not a plea from a avid Irish fan, I will be rooting for Alabama to stomp a hole into the Irish. This is about what is right and Manti Te'o is the best college football player in the country. I hope the voters get it right, but I am not holding my breath. Until the next time raise your glass and with that ROLL TIDE!!!!!!
