Touchdown, Rangers

I was watching the sports news in the early afternoon on Friday, and Buster Olney of ESPN said the line of the day (or words close to it, as it turned out later), as it seemed like a deal to send Cliff Lee to the Yankees was all but done:

"The deal to send Cliff Lee to the Yankees is on the one-yard line."

Well, the Yankees fumbled, and the Texas Rangers picked up the ball and ran it back 99 yards for a touchdown, as Lee is now a member of the Rangers.

Thank goodness for that. The pinstripers are good enough already but our Sox will be healthy (I hope) by mid-August. My fingers are crossed.

And the Red Sox scored TWO touchdowns later in Toronto.
