While going to law school in New Orleans, my friends and I used to frequent a bar called the Kingpin. We were there late one night, I think it was the weekend before Mardi Gras. My (admittedly hazy) recollection is that sometime around 2 am, the bar went from being mostly dead to nearly packed. Then one of my friends pointed over to the bar, where, lo and behold, Peyton Manning is sitting (alone), drinking an 8 oz. "pony" bottle of High Life from a bucket of ponies Kingpin had on special. Next we became aware that Eli was there too, playing shuffleboard with members of their entourage. This was immediately following the season where Peyton had set the then-record with 50 TD passes, so I drunkenly thought I would try to buy him a congratulatory Jager shot. I walked up to where Peyton was stationed at the bar, and ordered two Jagers. When the bartender brought them, I pointed to one and asked Peyton if he wanted it. Again, if my hazy memory is correct, he offered a dismissive response that may or may not have involved more or less than a grunt and wave of the hand. After leaving Peyton to his bucket of petite beers, while drinking my second of 2 Jager shots, I began to regret not mentioning the '97 Heisman vote.

in fact, a 3 may still be in the cards if we lose to MN tonight, depending on other results.
after that, a 4 is more likely than a 2. i seem to remember seeing something in years past about how the committee generally doesn't have time to take the B1G tournament final result into account when determining final seedings. i don't have anything to back this up, just my flawed memory; but if my recollection is correct, then only if getting to the B1G final is sufficient wil we get a 2. i'm not optimistic this will be enough for us.
long story short, i'd say the odds are 75% for a 3, 20% for a 4 and 5% for a 2. what a world!

|4 years 49 weeks ago||MVP is really a synonym for||
MVP is really a synonym for "MVP on a winning team". Given Hamilton's (mostly) comparable numbers, for a team which will in all likelihood win its division - combined with his greater contributions on defense, he is the best candidate this year. Now, Delmon Young as a better candidate than Cabrera is ludicrous - his numbers, as a corner outfielder, just don't measure up to MVP-level. Notwithstanding all this, I would rather have Cabrera on my team than pretty much any other player, which means more at the end of the day than MVP results.
