Sunday Roundup

• Now that Edgerrin James has a new $30 million contract, does that mean he can get the rest of his teeth gold plated?

• Baroid the Steroid hits his first home run of the spring, prompting speculation that he may be on the juice.

• Lute Olson really dropped the hammer when he suspended Hasan Adams for the entire (Pac 10) tournament.

• Canadian outfielder Adam Stern returned to the Boston Red Sox this weekend after his heroics over Team USA in the World Baseball Classic. Time to wake up Adam. You’re still a farmhand.

• The New York Islanders dressing room at Nassau Coliseum was flooded when a sewage pipe broke this week. It was the first time in 20 years that something other than the Islanders were stinking up the joint.

• The Twins honored Kirby Puckett during a Metrodome memorial service by laying his jersey out in center field and requiring all female attendees to be escorted to the restroom.

• Leave it to Curt Schilling to blame the batter, after beaning Pittsburgh Pirate center fielder Chris Duffy.

• After spending an extra two weeks to keep extra dollars out of the players hands, NFL owners sure are forking it over in free agency like it’s candy.

• The Baltimore Ravens made jailhouse contingencies at running back by signing Mike Anderson.

• The Cincinnati Bear Cats landed the tournament #1 seed that they coveted all season. Problem is, it’s an NIT bid.

• From the “What took you so long?” file: The Montreal Canadiens had 35 years to retire Bernie “Boom Boom” Geoffrion’s number, but they waited until the day he died to get it done.

• Brazil’s Renoldo called Pele a “two-bob opportunist”. Which immediately led us to pray that this is some childish spat over who got to peck for apples first.

• Get over it Jim Nance and Billy Packer. The brackets have been set. It’s time for March Madness!
