Call United Van Lines...

The fact that the Arizona Cardinals haven't been able to sell enough tickets -- to a playoff game -- to prevent a TV blackout is an absolute disgrace. What is the problem, exactly? Kurt Warner and company aren't exactly Super Bowl favorites... but c'mon -- they're certainly exciting to watch -- and how often does this team make the post season?

Can we put the Cardinals on the top of the "teams that should move to Los Angeles" list, please? Or put the Bidwill family on the Al Davis Memorial "please give up ownership of this team" board?

While we're at it... about the New Jersey Nets....

Everyone understands that the Atlantic Yards project is a no-go at this point, right? It's difficult enough to get financing for a used Hyundai in the current economy... but Bruce Ratner is going to get financing for a basketball stadium that New York City really doesn't need?

Time to move on, Bruce. We all know you bought the team as part of your strategy to build Atlantic Yards. It was a nice idea. But it ain't happenin'. And it's unfair to keep the team and its fans, in limbo while you come to that conclusion.

Sell the squad -- either to someone local, who could move them to the new Prudential Center in Newark, where the Devils play -- or to one of those Microsoft billionaires looking to bring basketball back to Seattle.

What I Think You Should Know About The USMNT
Needless to say, it's been a great World Cup thus far. The USMNT having some success would be awesome.
La-La-La-L.A. Gets Lord Stanley!
Just a few things that caught my eye:
  • Alec Martinez's Cup-winning goal celebration? # priceless. I wonder if he'll ever get his gloves back.
  • Henrik Lundqvist stopped the 50th shot of the game. He couldn't stop the 51st. #connsmythe if the Rangers had found a way to come back in this series.
Do Analytics Take the Fun Out of Sports?
Apparently that was the topic of one of the presentations at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston last week. The presenter, Yale's Edward Tufte, opined:

Don't let people tell you analytics are reductionist and take the joy out of sports. They mostly just take the stupidity out of sports.

Is he right?

The Problem With Drafting Billy Hamilton
Billy Hamilton went for $28 in the NL LABR auction this past weekend. I discussed this with a fellow writer who participates in Tout Wars with me later this month and we discussed the problem with investing heavily into Hamilton.
