See Ya Later, 2010!

So this is a little bit late, but I figured I would throw out three pretty decent year-end pieces to put a fork in 2010.

The first, is Dave Barry's always humorous Year In Review. My favorite line, from many...
Speaking of entertainment: As the year finally draws to a close, all eyes are on Seaside Heights, NJ, where MTV plans to ring in the new year by dropping a ball containing Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, one of the leading bimbos of "Jersey Shore." Millions eagerly tune in, only to find that the ball has been attached to something that makes it drop slowly. A bitterly disappointing end to a bitterly disappointing year.
In sports, Michael Rosenberg of does a nice job re-capping some (but not all) of the notable sports moments of the year. Including the Patriots fleecing of the Vikings on the Randy Moss trade.

The Vikings traded a third-round pick for Randy Moss, and were then astonished to find out that he has a bad attitude. I don't know how they were supposed to see that coming, since he had played for them for only seven years.

Meanwhile, in case you are one of the last remaining souls who questions Bill Belichick's genius, consider that he traded a fourth-round pick in the 2007 draft for Moss, got 50 touchdown catches out of him in 51 games, then dealt him for a third-round pick. When Belichick plays poker, his opponents always end up with four cards. His Patriots have won at least 10 games in each of the last eight years.

And lastly, Boomer Esiason did a good job (along with no doubt, the production assistants and editors at CBS Sports) going through the NFL Blunders of the Year.
