I like Thursday night football. Demetri Goodson Jersey . It kind of breaks up the week for me and sets the stage for the upcoming week. Its only one game, and often I get a chance to see a team that I would never normally see. For instance, next week it is Houston at Jacksonville and yes, by no means a marketing dream, but still it interests me as outside of highlight tapes, I know very little about Jacksonville. It is a great opportunity to see "what they got" in terms of skill and the future but I am a fan, not a player, and having been a player, the short weeks were a stress. I think the NFL is one of the best run organizations in sports. Well run, well managed and very profitable. Still, they are wearing people out and the people being worn out are the players. The short weeks are a massive stress on players and with American Thanksgiving this week, you have six teams that are going through that stress. Football is a preparation sport and the players have no time to prepare properly. The Monday morning after a Sunday game, the teams dont even review the previous game; they just move on to the next. I thought a true wakeup call was the illness of Gary Kubiak, head coach of Houston. Yes, that could have been genetic and unavoidable but maybe not. Through the course of a football season many coaches go seven months straight without a day off. Sure, some by choice but often it is an accepted standard. Think about seven months straight without one day off. No thanks! I love my football and it is important to me but I love my health more. On a Sunday to Thursday cycle, the coaches will put in 12 to 14 hour days and the only break would be maybe Saturday before a Sunday game for a few hours in the afternoon. They could go 10 days straight, 12 hours a day, because of Thursday football. I know they get paid well and its their choice but it is also a toll that should be recognized. That recognition was Gary Kubiak. I dont know about others but I like my day off. Here at TSN, I have communicated that to all seven of my bosses in the most subtle and polite way and it is kind of accepted. During the CFL and NFL season, I force myself to get away. No e-mail, no calls and if I get them I react to them a bit later rather than within 30 seconds, which is the normal time frame. And here is the key: my day off help my days on, not the reverse, because what I have learned over time and experience is as important as ability is energy. Natural, normal, internal quality energy. And to have that and enjoy that you have to plan for it. This is an unusual time in football because as great as the profits are there is a price for profits. It not just football. How about hockey, MMA and boxing? The collision sports. Now, there is talk of a team in London, England; eight time zones away if you a west coast team. Remember Junior Seau? What about concussions? The truth is that there is no solution. Have you ever looked at the bodies of coaches? It is fast-food heaven. I know some people that are addicted to work and dont seem to be able to slow down. You know what the truth is? Slower is faster because there are fewer mistakes. It is like being in heavy traffic; slow down as you will get there just as quickly as you would if you speed up. Almost forgot, today is my day off! David Bakhtiari Jersey . 22 because of a bruised foot and have added forward Sean Collins to the roster on emergency recall from Springfield of the AHL. Richard Rodgers Jersey . No pretty goals on this night, just get to the front of the net and fight for a chance.OAKLAND, Calif. - After sewage backups, toilet overflows and foul smells surfaced the past two years, nothing at the Oakland Coliseum surprises the home team anymore. Eric Sogard drove in two runs and threw out a runner at the plate, Scott Kazmir pitched another gem and the Oakland Athletics stayed focused after a delay caused by a malfunction with the outfield lights to beat the New York Yankees 5-1 on Saturday night. "Thats the Coliseum for ya," Sogard said. "Thats why we love this place. Never know what youre gonna get." The game was stopped for 38 minutes in the middle of the fourth inning because of an outage to the panel of lights above left field. Players from both sides said that the lights never initially turned on. The As said the circuit breaker turned off and had to be manually reset. "Maybe some carry over from Friday the 13th the night before. I dont know," As manager Bob Melvin said. New Yorks four-game winning streak ended because of its own errors. Two passed balls by backup catcher John Ryan Murphy, who was inserted in the lineup after Mark Teixeira was scratched with what he called a spasm in his midback, helped Oakland score twice in the fifth. But the delay surely didnt help Hiroki Kuroda (4-5), who compared the stoppage to a rain delay. He allowed four runs and five hits in 4 2-3 innings. That included a perfect fourth after the delay before he lost his rhythm in the fifth — and so did his catcher. "The fact that I couldnt protect (the lead) was really frustrating," Kuroda said. Kazmir (8-2) allowed one unearned run and three hits in six innings for his third straight win. Dan Otero pitched two perfect innings before Sean Doolittle closed out the Yankees in the ninth. Kazmir stayed warm in the clubhouse during the delay and then threw a simulated inning in the bullpen, which wrapped up just as the lights came back on. "It worked out perfectly," Kazmir said. Brian McCann was switched from catcher to first base after the Yankees took Teiixeira out about 30 minutes before the game. Martellus Bennett Jersey. Murphy moved into the catchers spot. Sogard walked, advanced to second on Coco Crisps single and moved to third on Murphys first passed ball. Sogard scored on John Jasos groundout, and Crisp came home on Murphys second passed ball to put the As up 4-1. After being held out of Friday nights game to rest his sore right ankle, Sogard came through at the plate and in the field. Sogard lined a two-out, two-run single to centre to give the As a 2-0 lead in the second, and he cut down Kelly Johnson at home after fielding a grounder by Jeter in the fifth. New York scored its only run in the third when shortstop Andy Parrino sailed his throw to first on Derek Jeters grounder. Parrino got the run back when he hit an RBI double in the sixth. But the latest maintenance issue at Oaklands dual-purpose ballpark overshadowed the Kazmirs latest gem and anything else the As did on the field. The aging Coliseum, which is shared with the NFLs Oakland Raiders and is the only stadium in the country still home to teams from both leagues, has had multiple plumbing problems the past two years. The As have been trying for years to move to a new ballpark, including in San Jose, which the San Francisco Giants contend is part of their territory. The As are in the process of negotiating a new lease at the Coliseum, which opened in 1966, though its unclear what — if any — facility upgrades will be included in a potential deal. NOTES: Josh Donaldson was ejected for arguing with plate umpire Hal Gibson at the end of the seventh inning. Donaldson is in an 0-for-31 skid after going hitless in all four plate appearances. ... Yankees CF Jacoby Ellsubury had his 17-game hitting streak snapped after going 0-for-3 with a walk. ... Yankees 2B Brian Roberts (sore right knee) sat out and DH Carlos Beltran had the day off. ... The Yankees send lefty Vidal Nuno (1-4, 4.97 ERA) to the mound opposite Oaklands Jesse Chavez (5-4, 3.04 ERA) in Sundays series finale.
