And thus Derek Jeter ends his career at Yankee Stadium in story book fashion, with a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the ninth. (USA Today)

Don’t hold your breath, Red Sox fans.

Something’s telling me you might not be seeing much of Derek Jeter on the field at Fenway Park in the final three games of the season and his career.

On Thursday night, in his final game at Yankee Stadium after a 20-year career as a New York Yankee, Jeter drove in the winning run with a walk-off single to right field. How’s that for a story book ending?

Well by now, most of you have probably gotten pretty tired of Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson’s antics as an athlete. As a New England Patriot, he never failed to disappoint people with his on field and off field behavior. However, Johnson was relatively quiet until earlier this week when he made comments directed toward Milan Lucic and Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins, which may have reignited the feud between the Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens.

Johnson, who is a current member of the Montreal Alouette football team, stated via his twitter account that he planned to join the “Habs” so he can fight Chara and Lucic. Montreal is currently without a known fighter, as forward George Parros was released from the team during the offseason. If Ochocinco is in fact serious about his wishes to fight Chara or Lucic, he better have a medical team on stand-by. Lucic is a scrappy fighter who won’t hesitate to drop the gloves if he has to, and Chara well he’s Chara. Continue reading Chad (Ochocinco) Johnson Wants to Fight Chara, Lucic (ICYMI) »

Yesterday, Tom Brady uploaded his resumé onto Facebook and, as expected, the internet blew-up.  His resume included several summer gigs at golf courses, a job building custom houses, and an internship at Merrill Lynch.  Only under the ‘Additional’ section does Brady mention his football accolades, which is humble to say the least.

Today, TMZ Sports, in the wake of their exposing of other NFL player’s misdoings, located Brady’s old boss from Dudlar & Sons’ Inc., a construction company, where his boss shared how focused and determined of a worker Brady was.

Dudlar recalls – “Brady was the hardest worker that I’ve ever had. I remember my son Gunnar came in one day and said, ‘That Brady kid’s a worker.” Continue reading Tom Brady Reveals Resume, Old Boss Recalls QB as ‘Hardest Worker’ »

1. Patriots:

* Shouldn’t Foxboro police drug test every Raider fan with face paint and shoulder pads with spikes sticking out of them?

* Patriots are still third in odds to go to the Super Bowl (8-1) behind Denver and Seattle

* Since the Patriots fairly beat the Raiders in the Snow Bowl – the Raiders are 64-130 (that stinks)

* Sam Adams had three sacks in the 1976 robbery game in Oakland

* QB Derek Carr is the team’s leading rusher right now with 57 yards

* Raiders have two sacks in two games

* No word this week if Sebastian Janikowski has administered the date rape drug to himself again Continue reading Connelly’s Top Ten: Raiders are Losers, Red Sox are Losers, Philly in ’76 »

Gatorade joins Nike, today, in celebrating Derek Jeter’s retirement in their new commercial for the sports drink.

The spot, shot in black and white with Frank Sinatra singing in the background, features Jeter on the way to the ballpark in the back of a car. He stops the driver and says that he would like to walk the rest of the way to Yankee Stadium through the Bronx. He steps into bars, talks to women and men, young and old, as he makes his way through the borough. He signs a boy’s baseball, a placard of him during his rookie season, and ends with Jeter exiting the locker room onto the field as Sinatra crescendos the final words to “My Way.”

Get your free money!

If the title of this article makes no sense to you, please review my earlier post, weekly fantasy strategy. My goal over the remaining 15 weeks of the NFL schedule is to provide insight to the best deals and values of weekly fantasy players.

Typically you are allotted $50,000 in fake money to draft your weekly team. Divided among the typical 9 roster slots thats means on average you can spend $5,555 per player. However, if you use my advice and find some cheaper, or high upside options, then you will have more excess money to spend on top tier players.
