Stank-0 got a look at the Magic.  As the pundits have said, you don’t blow up a good team this far into the season.  It makes the Magic a very deep team, but you have to believe some players will be butthurt about not starting or losing minutes.  SVG, you have your work cut out for you.

They brought in Gilbert, Richardson, and Hedo.  For those keeping score, Hedo left town to get more money.  He went to T.O (Toronto) and had a throwaway season.  He eventually landed in PHX and looked to have found a home.

Suns owner Robert Sarver must think this is Monopoly because he keeps making deals.  He did add some size with the Polish Hammer, Marcin Gortat.

In breaking news, Larry Brown has stepped down as coach of the Bobcats.  This is surprising because Brown got the Bobcats into the playoffs just last season.  Guess expectations went through the roof.  Stank-0 hasn’t seen much of the Bobcats, not counting finding Sherron Collins.  That’s the extent of Bobcats’ basketball, that Stank-0 has observed.

Who does Chairman MJ go get to coach the Bobcats? Any suggestions? Better question, who wants the job?

Stank-0 was glad to see the culmination of Ken Burns10th inning.  It continued with everything that happened since the homer run chase of 98. Barry Bonds was prominent in this segment.  We were then taken on a trip to the Giants trip to the World Series where they ultimately fell to the Anaheim Angels.  You can’t lay that on Barry.  He hit 4 HRs, drew 13 walks (a World Series record)

It touched on Sept 11th and how baseball was used to bring people together again.  The Yankees made the World Series that year, only to fall in 7 games to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

It showed the 2003 and 2004 playoffs between the Yankees and BoSox.  Stank-0 remembered watching Aaron Boone homer in the bottom of the 11th to end that series and propel the Yankees to the World Series. Yankee Stadium went apes**t.

The 2004 playoffs predictably took up alot of the documentary.  The BoSox came back down 3-0 to beat the hated Yankees and advanced to the World Series.  They swept whomever it was to win and break the curse.

Then we got the see how Ichiro made his way into the MLB.  He just may be the best hitter in my lifetime.  He broke the record for 200 hit seasons.

All in all, it was a satisfying end to the documentary.
