Still sleeping off that turkey from Thanksgiving?
It's a reeeeaaaaallllllly sloooooooow weekend.
News item: A-Rod might make even more money under certain terms of the deal he's signing; that might make it worth a total of over $300 million:
The Yankees could designate each level as a historic event, enabling Rodriguez to receive the added money in exchange for additional personal appearances and signed memorabilia for the club. That enabled the agreement to be allowed by the players' association and the commissioner's office. Baseball generally prohibits bonuses based on statistics such as home runs.
Grammar police: that's "an" historic event.
Quote of the day, found in Phil Rogers' column:
Nuff said. Go on back to sleep. Or watch the Bears game at 3:15 today. Oh, wait. Same thing, pretty much.
