$25 million a season for six years for a 37 year old shortstop. Clearly Derek Jeter is all about the pride of playing for the pinstripes and not the zeros in his check. I don't even like the Yankees but I've always had a little bit of respect for Jeter. If I was the owner or GM of the Yankees and his agent came at me with this contract demand I would politely respond with this:

Yesterday if you went with my three NFL picks and my one bonus college game you had perfect 4-0 Thanksgiving Day. You should be rolling in the money. Oh and you are welcome by the way. Nothing but winners here folks so go ahead and roll those winners into today's games.
THE IRON BOWL: AUBURN (+4) AT ALABAMA
Maybe Vegas knows something but I don't understand why Auburn is an underdog. I know it's a hated rivalry game but Auburn is clearly the better team this season. I don't believe we are going to see a letdown game from Cam Newton and company. There is too much riding on this game and from what I have actually seen don't expect Cam to have an off game. Bama is good but too many people think they are still the team from last year. They are not you fuckheads.
Prediction: Auburn 31 Alabama 28
COLORADO (+16.5) AT NEBRASKA
Listen I know Colorado is terrible and they are playing without a head coach and they are going into a very difficult place to play in Lincoln. But I just have this feeling the Buffs will play their best game of the year. Nebraska is in a little bit of turmoil too with Bo Pelini going ape shit on his star quarterback Taylor Martinez last week. Listen up Pelini, without T-Magic you are a very average team. In fact I would say you are just a step over Texas without Martinez. I still think the Cornhuskers win but I don't see them blowing out Colorado.
Prediction: Nebraska 38 Colorado 34
ARIZONA AT OREGON (-19.5)
Holy shit this a huge spread between two good Pac-10 programs. Oregon got a scare a couple of weeks ago vs. Cal and barely survived. They got an off week to prepare for Mike Stoops and the Wildcats. It should help tremendously. Oregon is playing for a spot in the BCS Title game. They are going to run up the score.
Prediction: Scoregon 49 Arizona 20
BOISE STATE (-14.5) AT NEVADA
I don't think this game will be close. The Broncos are too powerful for the Wolfpack and Kellen Moore is going to tear up their defense.
Prediction: Boise State 56 Nevada 13
BONUS NBA PICK: Lakers (-2) over Utah
