From the first moment I put on a baseball glove my father was telling me the legend of a player by the name of Mickey Mantle. He roamed the great prairie that was center field at the old Yankee Stadium. I don't mean the Yankee stadium that now sits in crumbles in the Bronx next to the billion-dollar new stadium. I mean the old-old Yankee Stadium, prior to the renovations in the 1970's. That Yankee Stadium had a center field that went on forever, or at least until you hit the monuments that were actually in play in front of the wall. No one who patrolled that territory was better than The Mick -- at least according to my father.

Would have been a nice match if WWE didn't go to a commercial for 5 minutes during the tag-team title match. Santino hits "the cobra" on Husky Harris and gets the pin. Immediately after the bell, Randy Orton comes out and RKO's Nexus. He goes to give the boot to Husky but CM Punk comes out on the ramp and tells him not to. Randy lands the big kick and the rest of Nexus chases him off through the crowd. Husky is out cold. The fans love it.
Ezekial Jackson capped off his feud with former teammate Wade Barrett as he defeated Wade with the torture rack on Sunday night. Jackson won the Intercontinental championship with his victory and has now placed himself as the #2 'face' on SmackDown. Friday night SmackDown is filled with 'heels' for Jackson to face like Cody Rhodes or even Sheamus. However, it remains uncertain whether the WWE will keep Wade in a feud with Jackson or bump him up to start feuding with Randy Orton.
