A-Rod get dumber and the NHL gets smarter

From where I sit it looks like the Alex Rodriguez saga has finally jumped the shark...

This really is comical. A suit against MLB and the Players Association? Who's next the media? After all they're the ones who are spreading the 'lies'. How about the bloggers? We are making observations about all of A-Rod's 'faults'. Or maybe he sues the fans. Without them he couldn't have been put in a position to feel the need to take the PEDs in the first place. To be honest this reeks of throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks. The further down the rabbit hole this goes the more I question what advice he's getting. Right now he's acting like a petulant 6-year-old....the only way to deal with him is to send him to the 'not ready chair' and tell him not to get up until he's ready to act like a big boy.

Judging from the mock-up the outdoor game at Dodger Stadium will be amazing...

My only concern remains the ice. Apart from that, beach volleyball, roller hockey and a pool. KISS performing. The NHL has found a cash cow in the outdoor game. A return to Edmonton is apparently in the works. Winnipeg should be in the running too. The big question is 'what's next?' in the US. Can a game be played in Cowboy Stadium? The Vikings are getting a new field next season, Minnesota will surely get a game. But what about weaker markets? Ohio Stadium is plenty big enough for the Blue Jackets. Nashville is already home to the NFL's Titans. Overnight temperature in both cities are below freezing. And I don't expect the NHL to back off of these games one bit.

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
