Chelsea fail to beat Arsenal in North London and so Manchester United win the Premiership for an unprecedented 9th time, and go for the double with an FA Cup final win against Chelsea. I can hear the chant now " Were on or way to Wembley Chelsea's gone all trembley La La.. La. la- La La..La.La"

The New York Rangers fail to qualify for Lord Stanley's trophy but bow out with such spirit and grace and grit, that it makes one of the other franchises in another borough look peewee.

The Team that Gehrig and Ruth, DiMaggio, Dickey, Whitey, Scooter, Munson, Heinrich, Mantel, Gator et all, built, bring back the long lost son to Yankeeland, yes indeed the prodigal Roger Clemens. Wandering the wilderness of the national league nigh on these 4 years, searching for a home that was not Boston or Houston or Toronto, with no real baseball family for support, he returns as Suzy W says, HOME. Oh yeah, he gets $28M guaranteed for the season, $1 a start, pitches 5 innings with a 4.63 ERA and doesn't travel to away games. That's how you spell TEAM in the Bronx. Welcome home Rog. The Yaankeeees win, the Yaaaaaankeeeeeeeees win.
