Yes, Total Bases is still here. I have been very busy with theprolaxblog.blogspot.com (remember to go there to help get me on SBN!) and an upcoming YouTube Sports Show. Anyways, here is a very long overdue Sunday Sports Recap!
Well… The Red Sox lost, 4-3 to the Yankees in Yankee Stadium. The Red Sox took the lead in the ninth off Mariano Rivera, with Bill Hall and Mike Lowell driving in the runs. But Jonathan Papelbon surrendered a run and then Hideki Okajima to give the Yankees a win.
But the Patriots won! They beat Buffalo 38-30. The defense was bad, with Darius Butler birned left and right, as well and Brandon Meriwether. But Jered Mayo and Pat Chung had good games! On offense Tom Brady was Tom Brady, with three touchdown passes, two to Randy Moss. Aaron Hernandez also had another awesome day.
In other sports scores: The Jets defeated the Dolphins. Mark Sanchez and Dustin Keller had big games.
The Kansas City Cheifs are 3-0! They beat the 49ers.
The Cowboys actually won a game so the Super Bowl for Dallas is back on! (end sarcasm)
Now for some News and Notes:
* Bruins head coach Claude Jullian said that Blake Wheeler and Tyler Seguin could play center in marc Savard’s absence.
* Jonathan Papelbon was blaming the ump for blowing the game. Phil Cuzzi was bad, but he didn’t give up the hits to Teixiera and Swisher.
* It looks like the Carmelo Anthony deal to the Nets may be off now. I still think he will end up in NY.
* Not much else going on. Remember to check out my YouTube show the internet sport show. It will be up sometime this week. I promise to write here more often now that I am less busy!

The Bruins have assigned Dany Sabuan to Providence, and recalled defenseman Jeff Penner. That tells me that Andrew Fernece is not ready to return on the roadtrip, and they need a backup defenseman.
