Playoffs! I'm not talking about playoffs!

Indeed, yes I am. But before I start, I must say that I'm hurtin' right now. The Rose Bowl crushed me. But the run had to end sooner or later and congrats to Texas. And a special congrats to Vince Young who proved, without a doubt, that he is the best player in college football. On to the pros. My... Sign in to see full entry.

Cuba Stays Home!

Fidel Castro says that he will not allow the Cuban National team to play in the first "World Series" of baseball. Too bad. I would like to see every country with good baseball players in the tournament. And Cuba, as we know, has some very good ball players. Castro knows this, also. And with the...

Just saw a segment on HBO's "Real Sports" with Bryant Gumble about sports groupies. Now, usually, I could care less what athletes and their followers do away from their professions, but this piece made me think a little. First, the two women that they interviewed for the piece were grad students who... Sign in to see full entry.

Dogs Playing Poker

The Washington Nationals have been in town for a year now and Major League Baseball and the city can't come to an agreement on funding a new stadium. MLB wants the city to foot the bill for the entire cost, while D.C. says that the league will have to help them finance it, because the cost is going... Sign in to see full entry.

X'ed Out

Bernard Hopkins, when will you learn? Back in July, I was listening to the "Executioner" talk about his upcoming fight with Jermain Taylor for the middleweight title when he was asked about Terrell Owens and Donovan McNabb. The "Executioner" sided with T.O. in dissing Mcnabb by saying that he choked... Sign in to see full entry.

No More Bowl Games!

The problem with the BCS is not a problem to me. I like everything about college football except this. There are way to many bowl games. And 6-5 shouldn't get you a post season bid. I just bought a college football history book at a farmer's market yesterday that was released in 1973. At that time... Sign in to see full entry.

I Miss the Heavyweights

What we need is a good old fashioned heavyweight championship boxing match. One of the caliber of Ali-Frazier, Holyfield-Bowe, Tyson-Holyfield. I miss the big time championship fights at Ceasar's Palace in Las Vegas. And, as of right now, they are probably a thing of the past. There is nothing... Sign in to see full entry.

The New Look NBA

If you haven't noticed, pro basketball season has started. It is my second favorite sport behind any kind of football. The college game is nice, but there is too much hypocrisy for me and the season doesn't start until the NCAA tournament anyway. At least with the pros, you know that the pay is...

Theo Epstien has decided that he no longer has the heart and energy to remain as the General Manager of the Boston Red Sawx. After three years at, two playoff appearances and one world's championship the "boy wonder" has decided that he's had enough of baseball. Word on the street is that he could...

Doing It Their Way

Ozzie Guillen and Ken Williams won the championship of the baseball world for the Chicago White Sox, their first in 88 years, by doing it their way. And I, for one, am happy for them, their players and their fans. Williams and Guillen did nothing special. They just built a team the way almost all... Sign in to see full entry.
