Your Daily Fix 11.16.06 [J. Mark English]

  • MLB Managers of the Year: Jim Leyland wins the AL Manager of the year for his work with the Detroit Tigers. He'll be back next year with the team. Joe Girardi wins NL Manager of the year for his miraculous work with the Flordia Marlins. His ultimate reward? He was fired by the team. Go figure.
  • O.J. Simpson: Remember when that name had meaning in the world of sports? When you thought O.J., he reminded you of this superb back in a USC uniform, or with the Bills running against the Jets at Shea in the snow. Now he is just a sad and tragic fool. His new book should make waves of new fans. (That was sarcasm, folks.)
  • China will use mice to test the safety of their Olympic foods. I'm sure the PETA folks will find reason to protest this decision. Maybe they can focus on China's one child policy?
  • Greg Garber goes into the mind-set of an NFL kicker.
  • Mike Tanier says much is at stake for the Chargers, Broncos this weekend.
  • Stewart Mandel has problems with OSU vs. Michigan rematch talks.
  • Doth my eye deceive me, but the Knicks won a game last night!
  • But the Rangers fell to the Stanley Cup champs.
