Monday Musings

Here's what's on my mind this Monday, May 23rd.

Shaquille O'Neal has had 100 CC's of blood removed over the last few days and is questionable for tonight's game against Detroit. This is an extremely bad omen for Miami; without Shaq, the Heat has absolutely no chance of beating the Pistons. My Eastern Conference finals pick is looker safer by the minute.

Everyone is so caught up in Barry Bond's latest complication possibly keeping him from passing Hank Aaron on the all-time home-run list. In my mind, however, the bigger issue is his loss of another shot at a ring. Without a doubt, he is the greatest player ever without a title. Despite his numerous flaws, I would have liked to see him get one and hope he will get another chance.

There is talk of Josh McCown possibly winning the Arizona Cardinals' quarterback job over offseason acquisition Kurt Warner. That is ridiculous! Why go out and give a large contract to the best free agent quarterback available if you're going to start the same sorry one that lost TWICE to the 49ers last year? Mark my words: Warner will be the starter.

All this speculation about Ricky Williams returning as a Dolphin is absurd. He may resurface, but definitely not in Miami. I mean, he quit on the team in favor of his beloved grass! Also, the Dolphins have already drafted Ronnie Brown, their running back of the future. The only use Miami has for Williams is as trade bait.

On a final note, here's my pick for tonight's game between the Pistons and Heat, with a disclaimer: If Shaq plays, Miami; if not, Detroit.
