It always comes down to sports and politics...

because I follow both to near obsession...

first, the US Attorney scandal goes straight to the top. And this is no longer figurative. Josh Marshall at talking points memo puts together the key citations from the new JM Times and Wapo pieces. TPM Muckraker helped expose this story in the first place, and now it seems it really does go all the way to the top. Literally. As in, when I said the USA story was far more important than the Libby verdict, I wasn't kidding.

second, let me get all Colbertian for a second... it seems my beloved Rangers must be reading this blog, or how else could you explain THIS?!?!:

New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has signed center Tom Pyatt to a professional contract.

Pyatt, 20, has skated in 56 games with the Saginaw Spirit of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) this season, registering 42 goals and 38 assists for 80 points, along with a plus-32 rating and 18 penalty minutes. Among league leaders, the OHL Western Conference All-Star is currently tied for first in game-winning goals (nine), tied for third in shorthanded goals (six), tied for sixth in goals (42), and tied for 11th in plus/minus (+32).

See what positive thinking can do, feygele?

As happy as I am that Pyatt is taking the next step toward the NHL, I am really going to miss watching him play. You've got to love the way he plays the game. I was just telling a friend of mine that he's one of those players who always seems to be exactly where he is supposed to be on the ice. You're really going to love this kid when he finally puts on the Rangers jersey.

Thanks for the heads up. The Rangers, over the last couple years, seem like they've got a real serious collection of talent in the minors and development. One of their best players last night was Brandon Dubinsky, a 20 year old emergency call up from Hartford. We in nyc hope Pyatt is as good as his gaudy saginaw numbers. Go spirit!
