|QUALITY QUESTIONS THAT JUST DIDN'T MAKE THE CUT|
I don't understand why everyone is so hard on A-Rod. He is completely consistent. In fact I just won $20 off my roommate calling his inning-ending, bases-loaded, double play in the eighth against my Mets. Thanks, A-Rod, and keep up the good work.
-- Kyle, Raleigh, N.C. Here is the good postscript to the piece you wrote about the classic A-Rod moments the last two nights: My friend who lives in Vegas turned to his house full of Yankee fans on Sunday night and offered $10 to ANYONE that E-Rod grounds into a DP. And nobody would take it. If a room full of Yankee fans isn't willing to back this guy, shouldn't Cashman be looking to ship him to the Nationals for Soriano and offering to pick up the rest of the salary that the Rangers aren't already offering to pick up or something?
-- Dave, Brooklyn, N.Y. "Cheap Seats" is a hilarious show, I don't know what your problem is. Maybe you're just jealous that somebody else got a TV show where they can make smart-ass analogies and you only have an article.
-- Erik, Mill Creek, Wash. While in Vegas, my buddies and I invented a drink called "The Bonds." It's a beer that's 90 percent head. In fact, I am drinking one now.
-- Al, Eugene, Ore. Has Hubie Brown ever witnessed a bad call or bad timeout?
-- Matt, Los Angeles At some point during a Rasheed Wallace interview I expect him to scream into the microphone, "Yes they deserved to die and I hope they burn in hell!!!"
-- Jay Stewart, Spokane, Wash. Just wondering when the Mike Brown "LeBron is getting triple-teamed, and no one else can hit a shot, now what?" Face will be authenticated.
-- Chad Magistro, Columbus, Ohio Here's my "Lost" question: Who has a better chest, Kate or Hurley?
-- Whitney Goldstein, New York Just read your column from Monday night's TiVo extravaganza. Good stuff as always, but how come no mention of the Craig Sager/Paul Mokeski interview during Suns-Clippers? Were you too dismayed (as I was) that Mokeski is balding and has lost his '80s perm?
-- Mark, Quincy, Mass. Wait ... how the hell did Pedro Gomez just win "American Idol"?
-- Shihwan, New York
