Tangent Friday…

Don’t really want to talk about the game from yesterday- sometimes you just have one of those games. We’ll be just fine. But had to find something for the Morning Adjustment. So I was surfing through some of my favorite sports sites, and came across Queen’s We Will Rock You. Watching the video on YouTube

Halftime Adjustments- Hey Jeff thanks for agreeing to talk with our readers today, let’s get right into it. You are obviously a

Tangent Friday…contracts gone crazy

Today is a significant day in the history of American Sports. David Beckham and wife Victoria have been introduced in L.A. Beckham will join the Galaxy, and try to turn their season around. I have no interest in looking up the Galaxy’s record or trying to sound even remotely educated about soccer. I am not.

A new rivalry…

Cleveland is 115 miles from Pittsburgh. You can easily get there in two hours. I’ve gone there for a baseball game. Saw the Pirates play the Braves when they were still at Three Rivers Stadium. I have to admit that I took the opportunity to write a message to the Steeler fans there in the

This Carmona kid is good…scary good

Two quotes to open- the first is from yours truly before yesterday’s masterpiece… “The Tribe sends Fausto Carmona to the mound tonight against Josh Beckett. This is a very important game for Carmona. It may give us an indication if he is ready to pitch in the post-season.” The second is from the AP wire

Throwing a penalty flag on The Big Lead

Full disclosure first- I read The Big Lead. I’ve linked to the Big Lead. They even threw us a bone once with a link back to a Michigan post John wrote. But I have to call a foul. On two occasions in the past 10 days The Big Lead has ran posts that were nothing

The most awkward e-mail ever

To: William C. Martin, AD, University of Michigan From: Charlie Cobb, AD, Appalachian State University Dr. Martin- Thank you again for your hospitality this past weekend. The wife and I enjoyed your wonderful facility and campus. You certainly exceeded our expectations. I wanted to say that your team performed admirably, and never gave up. That

Was it good enough?

Good points John. I wonder was Charlie Frye’s performance good enough to be named the opening week starter this week? I thought Charlie did a good job, particularly his handling of third down situations. He certainly looked comfortable running the offense. And speaking of that it was nice to see Jamal Lewis move the ball

Real Men of Genius- Mr. Delusional Michigan Fan

UPDATE: It’s funny, we’ve been getting a lot of hits from Michigan Facebook users on this one. If you are featured in one of the pictures we’d love to talk to you, maybe even offer you a WFNY shirt for your infamy. Many of you are keep trying to tell me this was originally a

A save?!? Are you kidding me?

By now you have probably seen the highlights, or at least the score of the Rangers/Orioles game. The Rangers spanked Baltimore 30-3. Most runs scored in like a 100 years yada, yada. Here’s the most ridiculous stat from the game. Forget Saltalamacchia and his 4-6 night with 7 RBI and 5 runs scored. Never mind

Browns get win…and dominate the Chiefs

The Browns get a win in the first pre-season game of the year. What is good news for Browns fans is not really that we won the game, but that the defense and offensive line dominated the Kansas City Chiefs. No, Larry Johnson didn’t play. Brody Croyle, Tony Gonzalez and the rest of the offense

Cabrera and Gutierrez saved my tv tonight

I may have done something rash in the 4th inning. In the 3rd, we had men at 1st and 2nd with nobody out and failed to score. We had a man on second with one out in the 4th and Shoppach hits the first pitch to shortstop for the out. I was fuming. I’m so

I can’t even see straight right now

Unbelievable. I can’t even tell you how mad I am at Eric Wedge right now. Lead-off double in the ninth inning in a tie game. Peralta up to bat, and Wedge doesn’t order the bunt! Of course it is pointed out by the dynamic announcing duo that Wedge likes to give his hitters freedom to

Two games, two teams heading in different directions

I write this while watching the Browns getting handled by the Lions, and the Indians beat up the Rays. (Thank you picture in picture, and thanks to John for running the ship the last two days.) The Indians look a lot more like a playoff team today. The Browns just scored their first offensive touchdown

Dear Fausto, I’m sorry

Someone needs to say it right? You have been spectacular since the All-Star break and have a 4-4 record to show for it. Your era is below 2.00 during that span. Tonight you gave up only three hits. Two of them went for homers, even though one of them was clearly fan interference. Before that

Fantasy Football Preview…the Running Backs

You know how you go to a restaurant and they bring out some weak looking salad and lame piece of bread to start off your meal? Not here at Halftime Adjustments- we bring out the meat! Everyone knows that Running Back is the key position in fantasy football. If you aren’t getting production from your

Please sign the thank you card

Well now. It seems the Memphis Grizzlies have decided to throw 7 million per year at Darko Millicic. Wow. That would be two teams that have made big mistakes with Darko. We are sending a thank you card because that was the team most interested in Varejao, and honestly probably the only one who would

Will the punishment fit the crime?

Let me say this up front- I am not a Jet fan. What I am wondering is why the punishment for the Patriots’ sideline videography isn’t going to include forfeiting the game that they were caught cheating in? I don’t quite understand the logic to this. Sure, I think that losing draft picks is a

We interrupt the ALCS coverage for some stupidity

It was announced today that Cleveland will have an Arena League team starting in ’08. The team, currently the Las Vegas Gladiators, will move to the Q and be renamed. (Thanks to Deadspin for the tip.) Cleveland’s favorite QB Bernie Kosar will be the team president and part owner. Here is the official release from
