Could the Mark Sanchez error return to New York?

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 12:01 am
Did you see where the Detroit Lions' Ndamukong Suh was fined $100,000 for an intentional illegal hit in a game a week ago? Not sure how fair the amount was, but I thought things went too far when NASCAR disqualified him from the Chase.The New York Jets put quarterback Mark Sanchez on injured reserve with the right to reactivate him later. No timetable has been set for when Sanchez returns as the starting quarterback. Sources say it involves freezing temperatures in an extreme southern locale.Former major leaguer Wladimir Balentien hit his 56th home run to break the Japanese single-season record set by the legendary Sadaharu Oh. The response was universal: Shouldn't Wladimir start with a V?Reports say LeBron James married his longtime girlfriend over the weekend. That's nice, but Michael Jordan still has him in wedding rings, two to one.Top prep point guard JaQuan Lyle announced he will decommit from the University of Louisville and explore other options. In related news, the media will start a new tradition of only reporting high school recruits' second or third verbal commitments.Good to see NASCAR issued a clarification that it “requires its competitors to race at 100 percent of their ability with the goal of achieving their best possible finishing position in an event.” Following that lead, Major League Baseball ordered its teams to try to win every game. The Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros voted against the measure.University of Oregon tight end Colt Lyerla was upset that coach Mark Helfrich described him missing a game for illness as “circumstances.” When reporters asked Helfrich to be specific, he said, “Circumstances is extremely specific. That's one word.”

Pompous would be one word for Helfrich, but there are shorter ones.An Orlando television stationed apologized for being required to show the Jacksonville vs. Oakland game instead of the “Manning Bowl” between the Broncos and Giants.

That's fine and dandy, but what about the psychological damage suffered by unsupervised children who watched the Jags?Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel threw for 464 yards and five touchdowns in the Aggies' 49-42 loss to No.1 Alabama. Wow. Anybody know how I can get that guy's autograph?
