Forty nine days until Opening Night.
49: Ron Guidry.
His 25-3 season (all three losses to pitchers named Mike; can you name them?) was one of the best pitching seasons I’ve ever seen, along with Bob Gibson’s and Dwight Gooden’s.
Any others, besides all the San Francisco 49ers?
We spoke on this on a slooooowwwwwwwwww Saturday — maybe the lightest traffic we’ve ever had here — but there is talk that the NHL will change the tiebreaker rule, to where wins in regulation and overtime count more than wins in those silly, stupid, non-hockey, skills competitions.
I’ll have a guest blog schedule tomorrow … it won’t be every day for the next two weeks, just a few sprinkled in.
