Sportzzz


- The Aggies and the Razorbacks have agreed to a 10 year deal to play in the new Cowboys stadium. Cool. (I haven't driven by that stadium in a year but I heard it's massive.)
- With a win over Tech on Saturday, Baylor should make the NCAA tournament. It'll be the first time in 20 years. And, yeah, it'l probably just be a one-and-done appearance, but it'll be weird to see the Bears' name on all the brackets.
- Most random of salary notes: Boston Red Sox reliever Jonathan Papelbon agreed to a one year deal last week. Is he good? You bet. He had 37 of 40 saves last year with a 1.85 ERA. He also saved 3 of the 4 World Series games for the Red Sox. So his salary for next year? $750,000. Yep. That's it. Baseball players make a ton of money as free agents, but unfortunately for Papelbon, he's two young to be a free agent. That comes in two years. (As comparison, his back-up, who almost got booed out of Boston last year because he couldn't hit the broad side of a barn, made $6,000,000.)

To give you an idea of how big that stadium is...that building at the top right corner is a 200,000 sq. foot Wal-Mart Supercenter.

Does that help put it into perspective???

I think I would be looking for another agent. Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd got 800 thousand to pitch about 4 games for the Rangers.

I understand the Cotton bowl was to pay each A&M & Ark a few hundred thousand dollars to play in Dallas. They rejected that and agreed to PAY Jones $100 each to use his stadium. Wanna bet Jerry will exact a giant ticket price? Then hear the "fans" scream. Jones is a crook!
