Sorry I'm late to the birthday bash. Seems my mouse, a Trojan horse and my hard drive were waging civil war and...anyway, if you're getting me a belated gift, do not -- I repeat, do not -- get me a gift card to this Richardson-based outfit. Catastrophuck.
Seems everybody's getting something cool for our blog's birthday. Hmm. The Cowboys got a new defensive coordinator, punter Mat McBriar got a big raise, Ron Springs got a new kidney, and Texas Rangers All-Star shortstop Michael Young got a new, well-deserved contract. Fittingly, Young's five-year, $80-million deal will be the second-largest in franchise history behind, you guessed it, the albatrossian -- we can make up new words on our own blog, right? -- 10-year, $252-million contract awarded to A-Fraud back in 2000. Unlike Rodriguez, Young has earned it. He plays hard. He plays great. He keeps his mouth shut. He keeps his image clean.
