Tex to the Yankees....?!

So I'm at work today....and I receive word via an extremely reliable source (lol) that Mark Teixeira has signed for 8 years, 180 million with.....the Yankees.....huh? My first reaction was instant laughter (I have a witness for this lol)....How in God's name can they afford this? They've spent more than $400 million total (and over 60 million for this year) on 3 free agent signings this year.....and that goes along with the highest paid player in the league by far (A-Rod), a $20 million shortstop in Jeter, and several expensive vets like Rivera and Posada....my god....but what can you do if you are the league? No winners.....

Onto a couple other things...
  • Shaun Ellis fined 10K for throwing snow back at Seattle fans....I don't like this....snow isn't hurting anyone....and the fans loved it....and they did it first....
  • Eddy Curry is....back! lol sorry, I know no one cares
  • Come on Celtics....please win tonight so the Christmas game means even more.....it'll be the biggest regular season game since Kobe-Shaq I anyway....but still
  • And finally.....the NFL found it necessary to make a special announcement to say Ed Hochuli isn't working the Chargers-Broncos game......word? What were they gonna do? Put him there?....Just stop it....
