Some quick pregame thoughts:
If Mark Teixeira had worn a Minnesota uniform when he hit his game-winning walk-off home run Friday, would his shot have been ruled foul? Some seasons I can't stand the Yankees. This isn't one of them. But with all that talent, they don't need help from the umpires, too.
Spent two hours walking around before the Panthers-Redskins game. I saw more Washington jerseys than Panthers jerseys. The jersey of choice for Washington fans was 47, tight end Chris Cooley. One fan wore a T-shirt that said: Chris Cooley Is My Life Coach. Didn't see any Brad Hoover Is My LIfe Coach T-shirts, but I don't know why.
Which program is in worse shape, the basketball program at N.C. State or the football program?
All hail Duke. The Blue Devils were outstanding Saturday against the Wolfpack. Thought I heard some TV guys in the press box at Bank of America Stadium talking about them. Man, they were good, I said. And one of the guys who had been talking said, what? Then he invoked Krzyzewski.
Just saw a woman wearing an Adrian Peterson jersey, the Minnesota Adrian Peterson. But, as of 12:41, Carolina jerseys still outnumber Minnesota jerseys. I'm not criticizing Panther fans for their attire. I have no interest in how adult males dress.
