There was once a time when ESPN could do no wrong.

However, that time is long gone. It's not groundbreaking news, of course. But after Thursday's events, I just wanted to vomit.

We all know that the Yankees defeated the Red Sox 5-4 in 13 innings and in the process, sweeping their hated rivals. The Yankees are now 8.5 games ahead of Boston in the AL East.

One of the endless segments on this game featured a graphic that said "John Bleeping Flaherty". FOR CHRIST'S SAKE, THIS IS A REGULAR SEASON GAME ON JULY 1, 2004! WE'RE NOT EVEN AT THE F***ING ALL STAR BREAK YET! STFU, BRISTOL!

Flaherty recorded the game-winning single, in case you were wondering.

As for the Red Sox being "out of it" (paraphrasing Scott Van Pelt), there's this thing called the Wild Card. I know Van Pelt meant the division, but the Red Sox are not out of it. IT IS JULY 2! The Red Sox will do whatever it takes to make it to the playoffs. Hell, they have to. They didn't acquire Curt Schilling for nothing.

I'm sick and f***ing tired of this Red Sox-Yankees hype. Save it for the playoffs, if these two teams meet again. That's the only time where I can tolerate it, to a point.

But wait, that's not all...

The Los Angeles Lakers have offered Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski their vacant head coaching job. The worldwide leader has ran segments on Coach K's history at Duke all night it seems like. Well, when the Red Sox-Yankees strokefest needs to take 5.

Here's a couple of reasons why Coach K should just stay in Durham:
---Tim Floyd
---John Calipari
---Lon Kruger
---Leonard Hamilton
---Rick Pitino

Of course, Coach K could be scared to death having to find a way to stop Bremerton's Marvin Williams.

Regardless of whether Coach K stays at Duke or not, the ACC will be won by North Carolina. Something tells me that Roy Williams will finally get that championship monkey off his back.

Bristol has not made me a happy viewer in the past few months. They canceled NHL 2 Night, made Sportscenter an HD circus, and have botched the NBA telecasts big time. And let's not forget the endless episodes of the World Series of Poker.

Well, one thing's for certain here...

I won't be the winner of Dream Job 2.
