ESPN said that Strasburges injury devastates not only Washington but the entire baseball world.
Does it really?
Now don’t get me wrong. It is a total shame that this happened to him, the nationals and yes even the sport, and I wish him all the best for a successful surgery and complete recovery.
But is it really devastation?
A crabgrass infestation in all major league ballparks would be devastating. Trust me, once weeds take over, the grass never comes back.
From all accounts, the recovery, though long, is nearly 90% successful. And some say he has a chance to come back with an even stronger / more durable arm.
So, what would devastation in the sports world really be?
No 2011 NFL, or Fantasy, Season.
OMG! Ted, you better watch out! You, and your two teams are the last, best, greatest hope for saving the world of sports!
If they fail, then THAT would truely be devastating!
Forget about 2012 being the end of the world. If we loose sports, we loose all hope.
Come on Ted, if anybody can pull us through this tough time, you can.
But, until then, I have a few more practice mock drafts and over analyzing of draft boards to do before our Borderless League Fantasy Football Draft and Party on Sunday.
And perhaps this is the greatest thing about sports. There is always something to look forward to. Something to get excited about.
