1. Coal in the stocking of every sports agent ” I used to enjoy the “Hot Stove League” when off-season trades were rumored and consummated; now, everything depends upon which free agent signs where, establishing the “market” or freeing up “cap space” to go after some other over-priced future stiff.

2. Kurt Warner takes Arizona deep into the playoffs – since his sudden rise to prominence with the “Greatest Show on Turf” in St. Louis and subsequent demotion to journeyman back up, Warner has remained humble, supportive of QB’s who started above him, and now has triggered the first division title for the Cardinals since moving to the desert.

3. Mannywood returns to the Dodgers – for the first time since Fernandomania in 1981 (with the brief exception of “Game Over” Gagne’s alleged steroid-fueled save streak), Dodger stadium was rockin’ with the rastaman’s incredible two-month performance: fun replaced frustration ” it may not continue, but why not give it a try?

I know this contradicts wish number one ” so, why do you think we’re called “fan(atic)s”?

Sticking to just three wishes would be a very difficult thing for anyone to accomplish, but I’ll try. Without further ado, here are my wishes.

1. For the Detroit Pistons to start playing better and prove me right about the Iverson trade. This is getting ridiculous. The players have had long enough to get used to each other. It’s time to get some wins.

2. The BCS bowl system needs to be replaced with playoffs so the Big 12 mess never happens again.

3. They should start paying me for this. (It’s not sports related but I feel it warrants mentioning.)
