Bsi 1,726.79 +5.48 +.32

With the Index losing over 100 points since Thanksgiving any gains, even modest ones like today, are welcomed.


CC Sabathia (CCS) 23.35 +16.1 +306.85%

Sabathia may have been denied consecutive Cy Young awards, but he has 161 million reasons to be excited as he moves east to anchor the Yankees pitching staff.
Well, someone doesn't have to worry about the financial crisis.


Barack Obama (BHO) 250.33 -9.32 -3.59%

The first down week in a while for the President-Elect was brought about by the scandal in Illinois and the worsening financial crisis.

Analysts here are confident there are moves Obama can make before inaguration to reverse this slide.

Starting with getting this guy to stop e-mailing me all the damn time.  Enough David.  Enough.

Bsi 1,721.31 -18.24 -1.05%

Whether Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. had any role in the Illinois Senate scandal or not (and we're hoping he didn't), there's no doubt that the news coming out has stained his thus-far pristine image.

Analysts here have a pretty good idea where Gov. Blagovich may have come up with his pay-for-play concept.

Analysts here are all for black male vulnerability... but maybe not as much on the basketball court.

Especially if your nickname is "Big Baby".

Bsi 1,750.56 +8.97 +.51%

A slight tick upward as we get closer and closer to turning the page on another year and an era.


Colson Whitehead's first novel still reads as fresh as it did when it first came out a decade ago.


Allen Iverson

The trade to Detroit is highlighting the fact that the most culturally significant baller since Michael Jordan may be past the point of being a difference maker.

More questions than Answers now... sadly.

Bsi 1,741.59 -33 -1.86

While a second Simpson-related miscarriage of justice causes the Index to fall, analysts here are hopeful that this will be that last time the Juice will have any influence, positive or negative, on the markets.

To paraphrase Karl Marx: History repeats itself. The first time as tragedy. The second time, farce.
