Spring is finally here!
Stats for the day, The HC QB combos with the most wins in NFL history looks like this

Shula / Marino 116
Noll / Bradshaw 107
Levy / Kelley 99
Reid / McNab 92
Reeves / Elway 89
Landry / Staubach 84

Early season top five Teams:
Derek Jeter moved into 9th all time with his 3321st hit
Next up and possibly in reach are Carl Yaztrzemski 3419 and Honus Wagner 3420
Boston’ Jon Lester had his second quality start wasted by lack of hitting support and fell to 0-2 2.57
Fellow Boston Starter John Lackey is 2-0 1.36. Lackey is in the last year of his contract at $16 million and the Red Sox have a club option to keep Lackey in 2015 for a mere half million. The Sox brass should be talking to Lackey about next year now. Lackey, two years removed from Tommy John surgery has never looked better. A 95+ fastball and a nasty slider that John admits he never had before makes him at age 36 a quality top of the rotation pitcher.
Omar Infante of the Royals took a Heath Bell fast ball to the face and suffered a broken jaw and a concussion. Bells 2 seamer was recorded at 88 on the gun. Infante will miss a little time but should be ok.

Patriot DB Alfonso Dennard was released from prison in Nebraska after serving 35 of a 60 day term for a probation violation. He was quickly heading back to Boston as instructed by HC Bill Belichick. Dennard has 100 hours of community service to take care of and it’s rumored that he enjoys spending time with kids at various Boston hospitals. Dennard still has to face the wrath of Roger Goodale and may face a short suspension for his off field antics.
Womans final, U Conn (40-0) 77-59 over Notre Dame (37-1)
Congratulations to the U Conn men’s basketball team in winning their 4th title in the past 15 years.
The National Champion U Conn Huskies’ fans celebrated the unexpected win by lighting several small fires, breaking tables and chairs, and breaking windows in the Student Union and Field House. There were about 30 arrests according to Stores police.
Celebrating your teams victory with drugs and alcohol in a party type setting usually results in some sort of destruction.
Sorry for the lightweight blog today.
We lost a very close friend to a chronic lung disease on Tuesday.
My friend Orville was like a brother to both my wife and I. We are saddened by our loss but we are happy that he no longer suffers and has been reunited with his wife and daughter in Heaven.
Have a great day
