The collective musings, off-the-wall thoughts, and just generally eclectic thoughts that come out of Rich’s head every day.
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6
5) STEPHANIE SMITH – Here’s a kid you don’t hear a lot about, playing for a small school in the far reaches of the Hudson Valley. But not only is she an accomplished basketball player for Onteora, not only was she a member of the HVSR Dream Team II in softball, but she is quite the tennis player. Smith knocked off Spackenkill’s No. 1, Sarah McCall, coming from down a set to win 6-7, 7-6, 6-2.
4) NEW YORK YANKEES – Half of me is happy for a playoff berth in a season when many (most?) said they wouldn’t make the playoffs. Half of me is pissed for a pathetic effort against Houston.
3) STANLEY GARRANT – I don’t know why he’s on here. As I’ve said in the past, I’m totally against teenagers being able to shoot better scores than I J And what a way to wrap up his six-year regular season career at Spackenkill HS, with a FOUR-under 32 at McCann.
2) PINK OUT – Big ups to all the schools who have participated and raised money for breast cancer awareness.
1) ONLY IN NEW YORK (KNICKS LAND) – Yes, only the Knicks would have a coach in Derek Fisher who could inspire a former NBA player (Matt Barnes) to drive 95 miles to “beat the **** out of” Fisher for allegedly dating Barnes’ estranged wife. Too bad Fisher can’t inspire his current players like that.
