What’s In A Number?

8 to 1 – as in the number of touchdowns to interceptions thrown by Tom Brady.

1600 – as in the amount of dollars some fans are reportedly willing to part with to see Brady’s Patriots go for 16 and 0.

3.41 to 1 – as in Steve Nash’s assist to turnover ratio. Imagine what that number would be if ‘Kindergarten’ Marion could shoot (can’t take credit for the nickname – Aaron, I’ll let you do the honors.) Toronto’s Jose Calderon leads the league at 6.13 to 1.

11 – as in the consecutive number of wins by the Portland Trail Blazers.

32 – as in plus 32. Dany Heatley’s plus/minus ratio for the Ottawa Senators.

10 – as in the amount of dollars paid for a front row / obstructed view seat at the 2008 Ice Bowl in Buffalo.

    We can all see the Pats tear into the New York football Giants and remember how good this football team is.

    Thanks to the NFL caving in, I just lost my best bargaining chip with the Casey in years…

    Not even tickets to the ALDS in 2004 could get Casey to Boston and now this….

    Kindergarten Marion….. Honestly if anyone has ever seen him shoot – you would think that the guy never played basketball before. It has to be the ugliest looking shot in the history of the NBA.. Sorry Bill Walton just grabbed the computer. But seriously, it looks like he was taught how to teach to shoot a basketball in kindergarten – you know the kinda shot that was just have enough mustard to make to the rim and decided that was all he needed to know.

    Here is a millionare that shoots like he is still shooting a baskeball in kindergarten gym class..

    I am waiting for one of the games, for him to suddenly start shooting the basketball the correct way and say, “I was just playin’…. ” which is then followed by Steve Nash suddenly taking a chair to the back of Marion’s head..
