Five Spot / Quick hitters on the light side

1. MISSING LINK

The Milwaukee Brewers pulled off a coup by acquiring Zack Greinke (above) in a trade with Kansas City. I think they gave up too much, though. The Bratwurst was due for a big year in the sausage races.

2. TALLY HO

Tim Horton's has some discount ticket offers for the IIHF World Junior Championships next week. They've warned spectators, though, not to shout "Have another doughnut" to the referees.

3. JOSE CAN YOU SEE

Jose Canseco has a YouTube video in which he talks about making a comeback at age 46. He missed the game so much, he asked his brother Ozzie to inject eggnog into his butt.

4. MEADOWLANDS SALUTE

Michael Vick says the New York Giants showed poor sportsmanship by walking off the field without shaking hands after Sunday's last-second Eagles win. Videotape shows that isn't the case, though. Several Giants extended a hand to Vick, or at least a finger.

5. GOING UNDERGROUND

Punter Matt Dodge has taken a ton of abuse from Giants fans after his poor punt helped cost them the game. Dodge is now in hiding at an undisclosed location with Steve Bartman, Osama Bin Laden and Joel Giambra.
