Good morning, New York sports fans! Here is your first look at today's New York sports scene.â†µ
- Seems Eli Manning's biggest worry in the wake of getting 12 stitches to close the ugly gash in his forehead he suffered Monday night is what to do about his hair.
"My part might not look the same," Manning said. "I had to shave a little part of my head. I have to deal with my hairdo for the next few weeks and decide what route to take. That will be one of the big decisions I've got to deal with in the next few weeks."
Personally, I think the New York Giants quarterback was looking a little shaggy, anyway. There has to be an enterprising stylist out there somewhere who can create a look for Manning. Who knows, maybe 'The Eli' cut will become the next fashion trend. It will have to be better than 'The Tebow.' â†µ
- The New York Jets have talked a lot about their belief that they are Super Bowl material. Now, they are getting the backlash as a growing chorus of observers is saying the team had better back up the talk. â†µ
- The New York Yankees found some offense Tuesday night and defeated Justin Verlander and the Detroit tigers, 6-2. See Pinstripe Alley â†µ
- Johan Santana could not handle Hunter Pence, who homered twice, and the Houston Astros defeated the New York Mets, 4-3. See Amazin' Avenue â†µ
- The New York Liberty (20-11) held the Indiana Fever (21-11) to a season-low point total in a 78-57 rout Tuesday night. â†µ
- There has been increasing speculation in recent days that Carmelo Anthony could end up with the New York Knicks. Our friends at Posting an Toasting seem annoyed by it, a stance that surprises me. â†µ
