TO vs. the Bronx Bombers, which was the Bigger Story?

This weekend featured two very major story lines: the return of a certain wide receiver into the jungle of “The Linc” and the epic demise of the $200 mil Bronx Bombers? But which was the bigger story? Which one will have the more long lasting impact? The tale of the tape below:

Hype:

TO: Fear of bloodlust in Philly, pillboxes raining down on the field, various homophobic/racist catcalls, 1/8th of the fans arrested, possible dismemberment of Owens.

NYY: Really none. After Game 1 it was pretty much assumed this would be a sweep.

Amusing Moment:

TO: The FOX pregame group having to be basically sequestered from the Philly fans, who apparently were being given free beer. All this so as to save Jimmy Johnson’s ass after the last time the crew was in the Iladelph.

NYY: Any New York tabloid backpage.

The Game(s):

TO: Was basically Bledsoe’s second option to Mrs. Terry Glenn all day, which lead to pouting, no TD’s and really a very disappointing final total of 45 yards.

NYY: Detroit’s staff came up big time, Jaret Wright unsurprisingly sucked, as did the Unit, and A-Rod had one hit for the four game series dropping his post 2004 ALCS game 3 line to 5 for 46.

Reality of what Happened:

TO: No injuries, no one tried to bring in a Colt .45 to take him out from the stands (that has been made public anyway), in fact, he was a non-factor largely. But it was a damn entertaining game.

NYY: Instead of just rolling to a sweep, or at worst a four game victory, the Yanks bats fell silent at the hands of the Tigers young staff, and they’re eliminated.

The Future:

TO: The Cowboys dropped to 2.5 games behind the resurgent Birds and TO is looking more and more like a #2 in Big D, leading me to wonder just when his next outburst will be and when Parcells just absolutely loses it.

NYY: Man, what isn’t going to happen? Apparently Torre’s fired, Sweet Lou’s in, A-Rod, Sheff, and Bernie at the very least are gone, Barry Zito or Jason Schmidt is about to become a very rich man likely, and Steinbrenner’s head may just explode. Whether or not this happens before Parcells’ head exploding, I can’t say.

The Winner:

Pregame hype: TO
The game itself: TO

The future: The Bronx Zoo

Here's an idea of the hype that the Joe Torre story has been getting in NY: Yesterday, Joe Torre/Lou Pinella were on the front AND back pages of the NY Daily News, and there were approx. 11 articles about it...and there was not ONE single article in the entire newspaper about North Korea having a nuclear bomb, which was on the front page of probably every other paper in the country.

Hey just saw your comment, thanks for the shout out. As far as posting pics, save a picture to your computer, then when you create a new post the tool bar has a little icon that looks like a landscape. Click that upload the pic and then you can resize it and put it where you want. Anyway hope that helps and keep up the good work.
