Signed on Monday, released on Tuesday.
I've only seen one episode of How I Met Your Mother (on an United flight last week), so maybe this makes sense, or maybe it doesn't, but say it with me: Lemon Law.
"Similar in nature to lemon laws for used cars, Barney's new lemon law for dating gives a person 5 minutes to decide if the date will go on the rest of the night or not. They can call the date off for any reason in the first 5 minutes, avoiding bad dates."
"On signing Feely, the Chiefs told Novak and Barth that the two best kickers from the two days of competition would survive until Thursday’s game."
In other words, bringing in Feely served little more than to light a fire under Barth's and Novak's tushies.
It worked. In the trio's kickoff Monday, Barth made 28 of 30 kicks and Novak made 27 of 30. Feely pushed through 23 of 30. To add insult to injury, Barth drilled all 15 of his kicks on Tuesday. By Tuesday's (appropriately named) annual kickoff luncheon, Feely was booted off the team.
Feely's (travel?) agent is understandably pissed off for shuttling his prized kicker out to Kansas City for a night.
"Had we known he wasn’t even going to get that chance, we never would have signed with the Chiefs," said agent Glenn Schwartzman.
In other words: Nobody Lemon Laws Jay. Luckily for Feely, one of his old flames, New York, may be looking for a kicker. Lawrence Tynes' twisted knee won't untwist and Josh Huston can't seem to out-kick Angelica.
On to the best blogs ... around
I'd imagine losing to the Nationals stings, but you know what really has My Two Cents For What Its Worth demoralized? The lack of faith in Dodgers' community members.
The Mets have needs. Ball till you Fall says a closer, maybe Brian Fuentes or Brandon Lyon could fill the team's biggest need.
Baseball elects to have instant replay on home run calls. Under the Influence of Giants hates it, citing nostalgia for the "human element of sport." I say if leagues are going to have rules books as thick as telephone books, why not enforce it the best way possible -- with the help of technology. Tennis does it beautifully.
