Imagine what the Red Sox' record would be if they played the Angels every game.

Today is the last movement of the Clasico Quartet, any red card over/under guesses? I'll go with three, though with Mourinho and Pepe already in the stands that might be a bit high. UEFA is worried enough that they've sent Pierluigi Collina to oversee match referee Frank de Bleeckere and for my money while Collina is an all-time best, de Bleeckere is one of the top refs anyway.

Collina, btw, says Mourinho's claims of a pro-Barca bias are rubbish.

While it pains me to have to compliment a caught PED player, I do have to say that it appears that David Ortiz gets it when it comes to PR (and I am not saying that he did this for PR reasons only). It was a classy move on his part.

Thomas saves! 52 saves on 54 shots (and the two goals were more from defensive breakdowns than on Thomas)

Hawks leave a pair of tickets for Jameer Nelson for their first game against the Bulls. It must have worked for them, since they upset the Bulls.

First Zdeno Chara is under police investigation in Montreal for assault, now Tim Thomas will likely be indicted for grand theft at Wells Fargo. There was no way Philadelphia should have lost that game. They did everything right, they played hard, and they really outplayed Boston everywhere on the ice. That was the most incredible performance by a goaltender that I have ever seen.
