effect of today on rankings romo?
If you mean USNWR rankings, none.
If you mean my class ranking, then a lot. I can't focus. This will be a lost day.
I dunno man, I'm kinda glad the Cards didn't pony up $250 million/10 years. Maybe the Angels can absorb that kind of contract, but that would've put the Cards in a tough place, particularly if Pujols were to get injured (whatever happened to those nagging elbow problems?), and definitely as he gets older (his stats have already been declining). We're talking $25 million/year through the ages of 37-42. You'd have to hope he'd add a lot of value to your club in the first half of that contract, as I can't imagine fielding a playoff-caliber team in the latter half of the deal with a quarter of your payroll attached to an aging superstar. Still, it sucks to see him go; part of me was definitely hoping he'd take the Cards' offer, even if it might handicap the club for a few years.
Anyway... to make this post relevant: so I just heard today that Thompson Coburn is having a holiday reception on the 28th. Anyone know of any other firms hosting receptions over winter break? Also, if ya'll have been to any of these receptions before, care to share your experience? All I've been told is the date, time, location, and RSVP contact - otherwise, not quite sure what to expect.
