Alecko Eskandarian, gone. Traded to Toronto FC for a partial allocation. First Rimando, and now this. Thanks, guys, for systematically purging the most Bog-friendly players from your organization. Next thing you know, you'll be trading Bobby Boswell's mom and that fan named Vlad. And now, when I need a professional athlete to throw pumpkins from the roof of RFK Stadium, I honestly have no idea to whom I'll turn. I'm just gonna rename this the Salt Lake-slash-Toronto Sports Bog and keep writing about those two.
Plus, when you remember that Virginia had perhaps its worst week of hoops in decades after ascending to No. 1 in the Bog Poll, you really do have to wonder about a curse.
Anyhow, since I never posted this, you can watch Esky talking meaningless mini-golf smack and missing about three dozen two-footers below. Try not to cry.
