Ready for some football

The Green Bay Packers are at Texas Stadium tonight, playing the Dallas Cowboys. But most of America can't watch the game. Only those who get the NFL Network can see it. That's mostly satellite users. My friend in Ohio gets the NFL Network as part of her digital cable package, but it doesn't include the games. Apparently, it costs extra for the games, and her cable company was too cheap to pay. So she gets all the rest of the NFL Network programming, but not the live games.

I'm following the game as best I can on Game Center (which is kind of the NFL equivalent of Gameday, though not nearly as detailed). The first half was just nuts, with 44 points scored between the two teams. Favre threw two interceptions and left the game in the second quarter with a right elbow injury. Rodgers, the backup, took over. He seems to doing all right. The Cowboys looked to be running away with it for awhile there, but Rodgers has pulled them to within a field goal. Maybe it's just as well I can't watch this game. I'd have no fingernails left...

The Yankees officially announced the Posada signing today. They had 39 on their roster, so no roster move was needed. But someone's going to have to be DFA'd when Molina, A-Rod, and Mo are made official.

Baseball America has posted their Rule 5 draft preview. They think Brett Smith and Steven Jackson might be taken. The Yankees left Eric Duncan unprotected, but BA doesn't mention him, and he's not expected to be taken. I'm surprised his stock has fallen so far. He was their first round draft pick in 2003. I knew they were kind of disappointed in his development, but still. He's only 22 years old.

The deadline for tendering contracts is Dec. 12. We'll know by then if the Yankees are going to keep Andy.

Last year, the Yankees waited until the last minute to non-tender Aaron Guiel.

Andy will be appearing at a charity event this Sunday.

And he was nominated for a Tony C. award (Jon Lester won).
