Rapid Fire Week-in-Review: Utley, Lockout, Heat, Moyer, Hopkins

Here’s an abbreviated Rapid Fire Week-in-Review:

• Chase Utley has finally started his official rehab, which means he could be back with the Phillies soon. Unfortunately, it seems likely that he’ll never have the career he seemed destined for just a couple years ago due to what’s being termed a chronic knee injury. It makes getting excited for his return a little difficult.

• The NFL lockout is now longer than the players strike in the ‘80s. Of course games aren’t being missed yet, which now seems like the only thing that might motivate the two sides to actually make a deal.

• I’d like to rip the Heat players for acting like they won the championship by beating the Celtics to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals, and it certainly was classless. But I have to admit that I don’t think they’ll have much problem that the rest of the way. Of course, I’ve had a ridiculously bad stretch with playoff picks, so that could be the kiss of death.

• Talking about his charitable efforts today on 97.5 The Fanatic, Jamie Moyer mentioned that he was still trying to make a comeback. It’s really a shame he could doesn’t settle into a coaching position.

• Bernard Hopkins needs to go away. As in, now. He’s become a typical old guy that couldn’t let even the tiny spotlight that his boxing career received go, and is now resorting to old criticism of Donovan McNabb to draw attention to his next fight. It’s pathetic.
