Here are some morsels to savor as the Mets try to discover if the $20 billion Citigroup bailout includes anything for the Citi Field bullpen:
• Brett Favre and the Jets dominated the previously undefeated Titans 34-13 yesterday. Favre was so giddy that he celebrated with his young teammates for nearly a half hour before making his customary postgame call to Matt Millen.
• Eagles QB Donovan McNabb was yanked at halftime of Philly’s 36-7 loss to the Ravens. And this is cold: head coach Andy Reid had one of his assistants give McNabb the bad news rather than break it himself. Alas, that’s the closest anyone in green came to providing offense.
• GM will end its nine-year endorsement deal with Tiger Woods. It seems Tiger doesn’t want to be associated with a bunch of chumps.
• Notre Dame lost 24-23 to 3-8 Syracuse at home on Saturday. To make things worse, ND’s players were pelted by snowballs tossed by their own students. Hey, those ruffians didn’t learn that from the Fightin’ Irish -- otherwise they would have thrown them to the other team.
• A Florida judge has tossed a lawsuit that was holding up the Marlins’ proposed downtown stadium. That clears the way for the Marlins to finish the new park -- then trade it for 200 tons of dry concrete and molten steel.
• The World Anti-Doping Agency is examining Viagra for its potential use as a performance-enhancing drug. Expect that scrutiny to increase if, as expected, the Olympics add the Three-Legged Race.
• Two top Cuban players have been thrown off the national baseball team for “a grave act of indiscipline,” which presumably means they were caught trying to defect. Well sure, who wouldn’t be desperate to leave a country infested with Detroit-made cars and government-owned industry?
