NEW YORK, NY – Gloomy weather again, but sun heading our way just in time for Mother’s Day. And everybody’s got a mother… so make sure you treat her – the woman who bore the fruit of your loins, or any other mother – right this Sunday. And this mother here has realized that she doesn’t ALWAYS have all the answers – but often enough, she’s got a good amount of them. So, here’s your Sports Babe to answer to some of your Burning Questions in Sports & Entertainment:
–The Yankees have announced they are retiring Joe Torre’s number (#6). NO. Angry Ward will not be in attendance.
–The Rangers will lose on Friday night, or win and go on to lose and lose the series. YES. The likes of Different Matt, myself and the legions of other Ranger fans will be put out of their misery. NO. The Rangers generally never have and never will take advantage of the Power Play. That’s Rangers Hockey History 101 from when I used to sit in the nosebleeds with Angry Ward before the new millennium.
-Speaking of the Rangers, Mike Richter, my Rangers dreamboat from those early ’90’s glory days, ran the seven-miler race in an event I ran the half-marathon (plus four) miles of on Sunday. NO… I. NEVER. FLOCKING. SAW. HIM. Broke my heart.
-Someone will buy the LA Clippers… but NO, it won’t be Oprah.
–Dreamy Joe Mauer is on the DL. YES. I wish I could nurse him back to health.
–NO. California Chrome will not even win The Preakness. I believe we will not see a Triple Crown winner again until we are all too old to see the race happening on the TV screen. Yup.
–YES. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ baby will be ass ugly.
And with that, I’m gonna move it on outta here. Come on back tomorrow for someone a bit chattier and who loves his Momma, Junoir Blaber.
Happy Mother’s Day (on Sunday)!
