I thought about putting incognito as number one..
Who can't relate to bullying, right?
But the Kansas City chiefs finishing a 9-0 stretch..
That's like me or you going out 9 Saturday nights in a row and always hooking up the the hot 21er..
It's just awesome!
And the fact that the chiefs did it out of left field..
They have a QB that alot of people gave up hope on..
They have a coach that was just sacked..
They are the little engine that could..
Obviously it won't last forever..
But if we live in the moment, it's a pretty special optimistic story..
I am a Red Sox fan..
I wasn't impressed by the Bostonians performances..
Big papi stole the show and got minimal help..
People will remember longer big Papis performances vs the teams performances..
You backed the wrong pony there..
Take away big papi = no ring..
Aaron Hernandez is no longer a big story..
There is no mystery..
They have too much on him..
Hernandez is blatantly going to po-und me in the a--as federal state prison..

OK - you do understand what constitutes a BIG STORY, right? That means a lot of people care about it, and they're talking about it at the water cooler, and the dopes on TV are hyping it up.
Having said that, I will probably live the rest of my life without EVER hearing someone mention AS Roma, unless I retire blissfully in Umbria or Tuscany.
Nobody really cares about the so-called demise of Federer either, or that Nadal clinched number 1, and nobody is talking about how deep the NFL is either.
People still are talking about Hernandez, even though it is an old story. I don't want to hear about where he's going to pound you - keep that to yourself.

Nadal clinching number one, when he only played half his matches..
That's like an NFL team missing its first 8 games, and then winning the rest of the way..
Had nadal been healthy all year, he might have won 20 tournaments.. Which is crazy, but it's good..
Federers demise is sad..
He is one of the biggest icons in all of sports..
I knew federer was a big deal, when I saw lebron James wear a federer cap..
Plus I've heard Dwayne wade say that federer was more deserving to be sportsman of the year, than wade, (the year Dwayne won it)..
For the past 10 years, arsenal has had 4th place tattooed all over their bodies..
I never thought in a million years that we would be the best in the league come November..
I thought for sure that as long as we had the major budget, we would be like the Florida marlins, a cute team with alot of young guys, who hate to spend money and never come close to winning a trophy..
But the world got turned upside down this year..
Great, Hernandez is going to get his shee-iat pushed in..
Maybe if it was OJ Simpson trial, where you didn't know the verdict..
But it's a done deal..

Here's several current minor sports headlines that are all bigger than any story about Nadal and Federer.
Cutler - will he play this weekend? Yes! No? Yes!
Rob Ford, mayor of Toronto, is a crack-head! (How is this sports-related? because he wore an NFL tie to his press conference that was from 1995 - that's amazing).
Schiano - how is he still coaching the Buccaneers?
Movember - is that a mustache, or are you Dirty Sanchez?
