Updated 2:13 pm Ben Wallace Is The Latest Name To Surface I literally just saw this sequence from Chad Ford’s chat on ESPN.com: “ Chad Ford: (1:19 PM ET ) Hold on a second … have to take this call on a possible trade … Ryan, Chicago: Please tell me Ben Wallace is on the

Make Of This What You Will

I always like heading over to Brian Windhorst’s blog on gamenights after halftime to see his analysis of the first half. I certainly wasn’t expecting to see this up there tonight, “Folks, I have not watched a second of the first half as I pursue some hot trade rumors with the Cavs. They are being

Surfing fodder…your weekly best of the web!

It’s been a busy week here at WaitingForNextYear, highlighted by Derek Anderson’s egg-laying, Larry Hughes’ big performances, Rock taking a national columnist down a notch, Sarge discussing Brady Quinn’s alleged comments, and a pretty long discussion about the future of C.C. Sabathia. While we’re on the topic of Sabathia, here’s what Clevelanders are saying about

Seriously, this is lame…

Fans there are only 9 weeks left to get tickets for opening weekend. No, not MLB’s opening day, and not the opening round of the NCAA tournament either. We’re talking Team Michigan vs. Team Tennessee in the long anticipated AAFL kick-off! What’s that? You’ve never heard of those teams or the league? Well you aren’t

File this one under…Are You Serious?

Have I ever mentioned that I don’t really care for Boston fans? I have huh? Ok, just checking. Well it appears that a growing number of Internet savvy Patriot fans are a bit upset about the Super Bowl. Not that they lost. Not that a perfect season was ruined. But that the Giants, and the

Interception! Check out this email exchange…

I have to tip my hat to the IT department here at WaitingForNextYear, they know how to grab a good story! Check out this email from Pat Riley to Steve Kerr… Steve- First off, thanks again for handling your end of this trade with class and respect. I hope that Shaq finds the healing waters

QB Wanted…an interview with MGoBlog

  As the recruiting season wraps up, there is at least one major piece still in play, that being Pennsylvania quarterback Terrelle Pryor. His story has been well documented, from his early interest in Ohio State, to learning about Rich Rodriguez’ move to Michigan before West Virginia did. Most recently his connection to a prominent

A Rooting Interest

For several years I have cared less about who wins the Super Bowl. The game for me was more of a chance to get together with friends or unfortunately to work. This year I again don’t care for either of the teams in the game, but my hatred for Boston sports is reaching new heights.

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

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

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.

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

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
