The New York Daily News had its Top 10 sports stories of the year in their paper today. Most, but not all of the stories, had a New York slant to them as you'd expect. Here is their list:
1. The Mitchell Report
2. Torre's Farewell
3. Bonds' Record, and Record?
4. Mets Fall Apart
5. A-Rod Being A-Rod
6. Debacle On 33rd Street (Knicks)
7. Bad Newz for NFL (Michael Vick)
8. Bye-bye, I-Man
9. They're Not Done Yet (Yankees comeback)
10. News Catches Ankiel
Here is the story from the News: http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/2007/12/26/2007-12-26_2007_a_year_to_forget_in_sports-3.html
The first thing I noticed on this: where is the Red Sox' second World Series championship in four years listed? Their great comeback from 3-1 down in ALCS, and winning seven in a row to the title? It's not a New York-only list, as they included Barry Bonds, Rick Ankiel and Michael Vick on this list. But the Red Sox not being on this list can be looked upon as a good thing, as I guess the Red Sox winning a World Series is now viewed by the News as old hat.
And thank God for that.
