Quick Links

I’ll give you a couple of links this morning. Work issues, you know the drill. Anyway, here are a few to tie you over for now.

Red Sox fans know that Manny Ramirez is not speaking to the media this season so it came as a surprise when Man-Ram did a video piece with Fang’s Bites fav, Tina Cervasio of NESN. David Scott of Boston Sports Media Watch writes about the piece which focused on Manny getting a haircut from “Lmonstro”. Watch the video labeled ” Manny talks hair with LMonstro” and you’ll see how bizarre it is. Words cannot do it justice. Laugh you will (as he does his Yoda voice).

Richard Sandomir of the New York Times gives a mostly positive review to ESPN/ABC’s production of the Belmont Stakes, but has some scathing words for Brent Musburger.

Bob Raissman in today’s New York Daily News, is already sick of the Roger Clemens hype.

Michael Hiestand looks into the weekend sports TV ratings in this morning’s edition of USA Today.

After a year away from television due to legal problems with ESPN (never really explained), Harold Reynolds returns thanks to MLB.com and will most likely work on the upcoming MLB Network.

The Sopranos series creator, David Chase, sat down with Alan Sepinwall of the Newark Star-Ledger. Actually, he sat down with Sepinwall before the season began, but at least he explained the final scene. To be honest, he really didn’t explain it, but he did say you’ll see what you’ll want to see in the last scene of the series. Well, it’s not what I wanted, but at least you get it out of his mouth. If you want to read the entire column without having to click through four pages, here’s the printable version.

That’s it for now. I’ll be back later.
