Dale Earnhardt, Jr. won the Nextel Nascar Daytona 500. Nascar... the only sport that has its biggest event as the first event of the season. And it means even less this season under the new rules.
Maurice Clarett will be eligible for the 2004 NFL Draft, and he's hired an agent... no, he hasn't. Well, he has, but... Who cares? The draft is at least two months away, right?
Lakers C Shaquille O'Neal won the All-Star Game MVP in his home arena with a thunderous "CAN YOU DIG IT?" I'll start "digging it" when the playoff starts.
Sen. John Kerry won the Wisconsin primary in a tight battle with Sen. John Edwards. The real contest is at least eight months away, right?
The Yankees acquired Alex Rodriguez to continue to gild their expensive, aging lily with another offensive All-Star they didn't need.
But, who cares on this night...
BECAUSE GREG MADDUX IS A CUBBIE ONCE AGAIN!
Everybody on the North Side, get up and dance, baby!
I'll write more about this tomorrow. For now, I'm going to go to sleep and dream of Greg Maddux winning his 300th game in the right-colored pinstripes.
I actually said that very same thing in a chat room last night.
So maybe I'll dream about Jose Vidro hoisting a World Series title in the right-colored pinstripes.
Either way, there will be sweet dreams Just North of Wrigley Field tonight.
