Pats win, Santana in Boston?

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

In NFL action this week, the Dallas Cowboys proved they are the class of the NFC in a crucial win over the Green Bay Packers. Perhaps the most interesting storyline, though, was the narrow escape of the New England Patriots in Baltimore to remain undefeated.

On Monday Night Football, the Patriots matched up against a Ravens team playing like a bat out of hell. Baltimore running back Willis McGahee and defenders Ray Lewis and Ed Reed were friends of the recently murdered Redskins safety Sean Taylor.

It was evident the Ravens’ impact players were playing for Taylor on Monday night; the home team tore around the field and had the Pats on their heels virtually the entire game. The end of the game saw some questionable officiating and some hotheaded intensity from linebacker Bart Scott.

Thus, those whining, cheating, classless brats from Foxboro steal another game and sit 12-0 on the season. If they remain unbeaten, they will be the first team since the 1972 Dolphins to do so. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen; former Miami coach Don Shula will die of a coronary, former runner Larry Czonka will use one of his 1,000 deer rifles to go on a killing rampage and my head will implode.

The Johan Santana sweepstakes has been heating up steadily throughout the week. The two highest bidders have been (surprise!) the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. The Minnesota Twins, the ace pitcher’s current team, wants a lustful package of top prospects in order to deal Santana. At press time, the Sox looked in the best shape of completing a deal. Stay tuned to see if the Twins pull the trigger with the chowdah-eatahs and assist Boston’s quest to become the new Yankees.

It’s approaching Holiday season. Were there more sports headlines to talk about? Sure there were. But we at Gazette Sports figured we’d take the chance to wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, a Divine Diwali, a Krazy Kwanzaa, a Serendipitous Saturnalia, and a Zany Zartusht-no-disco. We’ll see you back in January!
