In 2005, OU went 0-4?

It seems like the NCAA has it's whipping dogs. I mean...what did OU ever do to the NCAA? First the NCAA refs give Oregon the game on two RIDICULOUS penalties. Now this?

The best athletes ever, by number.

Thanks to Crash for the post. And I am NOT complaining....give praise to our hero's and all....BUT! The bat is right. These "BEST" lists. Always seem to disappoint. Seems like we see these things roll out almost every year 'round this time of the BBall season. They get soooo boring. Same old concepts; same old arguments. It' s kind of like watching a Kindergarten play...vaguely interesting, disappointing in general. We feign excitement...but we are really just being polite. (Much like being a Rangers fan!) Does anyone have a list we can get REALLY excited about? The 100 most deserving of rabid fandome? The 10 most notorious? The 10 sweatiest? The 10 best shoes? The top 10 dirtiest plays? The 100 sneakiest tricks? The 100 largest beer guts in sport?

Ten of the Best

Hah! Hah! Hah! Snort! Hahhhah! Haha!... I wondered what happened to the writers from Monty Python. Good to see they've all found a new venue....

Are Chelsea and Liverpool bad for football?

HAH! Hah! Hah! Valdano cries "A shit on a stick" but gives us Poop on a page!! What he is really saying is that Benítez and Mourinho aren't managing their games the way Valdano wants them to.....shkriew that! Sure Chelsea and Liverpool play it up and down. Sure they do a lot of piss passing...but it works for them. Sure it's not as complete a game as DUTCH futball...but they play to their strength, as they should. Valdano makes it sound like they play robot futball all the time...but they don't. Both Chelsea and Liverpool gave us their fair share of highlight reels this season. Valdano is usually a good read...but in this particular article...he really needs to pull his head out of his attitude. And I have to agree with Joey Michaels

Devil Rays Acquire Fan

Hmmm...Devil Rays sign AAA blogger to 1 year deal...$535. Cool! But I wonder how the other Fan Free Agent deals are going down: MVP Heckler with Bullpen seats: $827, 3 year deal, with a $42 signing bonus AAA Swim suit model...$45, 1 year deal...random seat assignment. (But they are looking to fill their roster with at least 40)

When Naming Rights Become Naming Wrongs

Rcade...I see your point...if your point is that Tiger fans have a third choice...they can continue to love their team AND cry like little girls. Other than that... 1) I'm very sorry about your broken brain. 2) Did you just say that Detroit fans were meek? (how broken is your brain?) 3) I'd argue that the choice of HQ is financial 4) The name on the the stadium is only symbolic as an advertising that cute little Geico ghecko. 5) $3.5 MM!!! to relocate? To DFW? Hmmm...that's news to me. I just wish they had used the money on better fireworks at the stadium they lease to Ameriquest.

What would you chop a finger off for?

HOLY CRAP! "Buck Shelford stitching his nuts up so he could keep playing" How is it that we have to endure endless hours of ESPN debate over the impact of Terrell Owens finger...and there are guys out there right now spitting out teeth and testicles. I want the Rugby Chanel...and I want it RIGHT NOW!

When Naming Rights Become Naming Wrongs

We used to have "The Ballpark at Arlington"...that was the illusion that the field belonged to the city...but my beloved Rangers sucked. Now we have "Ameriquest Field"...named after a mortgage company from Orange County, CA...and my beloved Rangers still suck. Point being...I don't care whose name is on the long as I get to cheer for my boys in blue. I can't imagine any Tiger fan outside of city hall really gives a hoot. It's not like they have a voice in the matter. Just a choice to continue loving their team...or cry like little girls.

Living up to my name

Dont' forget: Warren Moon...for never getting it done. I'd also like to nominate some non-athletes to the list: NBA Officials, every one of them. Bud Adams...for refusing hire blockers for Earl Campbell...essentially crippling the one of the greates RB's of all time. Jerry could you do THAT to Tom Landry!?! A freakin Memo! Not right...just not right. Al Davis...for selling the vicious, ugly, cruel, and beautiful heart of Oakland to Los..Freakin...Angeles.

Rocky joins cast of fallen sporting heroes.

Wow! This opens up a whole new world of possibility for WADA. I guess Sylvester Stallone will have to be banned from Cinema for at least 4 years. I wonder who will play Dick Pound in the next Rocky sequel?

"The Righteous Fury of Dick Pound"

Lance has the right idea...get rid of Pound, and let WADA fix it's problems. Wada could be a truly great organization. Instead its become tainted by it's own ridiculous decisions. Any organization that cannot correct itself after doing something stupid needs to be changed.

Is cancer performance enhacing?

Wait...I just figured it out!!! It wasn't the cancer, or the cancer was the lead pellets that are still lodged in his backside from that unfortunate hunting "accident". You know...lead poisoning makes people crazy, right? Crazy people have inhuman strength and endurance, right? Yeah...that's it! He really only won those last three TDF's because he was cheating by injecting himself with lead pellets!!! Someone better tell Dick Pound! WADA can finally prove that Armstrong is a cheat!!! Oh Joy! Oh sweet Joy! Vive La France! Vive La FRANCE!!!!!! mean...yes...we better alert WADA...gotta keep things fair and such.

The L.A. Times runs a two-part investigative report and critique of the anti-doping regime:

WADA is a clown school and Pound is a tyrant. This is just another case of an empowered idiot forcing simple solutions on a complex problem. WADA's only purpose is to keep competition fair. But they are doing more damage to sport than the "cheaters" ever could. Ask yourself...what irritates you more...Floyd Landis getting DQ'd at TDF? Or Barry Bonds and BALCO-gate? Make no mistake...unreasonable = unfair.

New tool to catch sports cheats: Gene-doping test

This is really good news. Even though WADA can't validate the security or integrity of their testing facilities....we can all rest assured that they will be ready to thwart anyone who tries to use a process that does not even exist! WADA= Clown School!

RoboStick pulls hair to score goal

What a wanker! I'd like to see that trick against the US. Then Crouch could be a Yankee Wanker!

Get ready to dislike America

We love the sports we were involved in as a kids. It doesn't even matter if we had "game". So, at the end of the day...MLSoccer will continue to grow in the US because of the grassroots explosion. But it won't have any affect on NFL, or MLB, or NBA, or even NHL growth. Because by the time we "follow our dicks" into High School Sports...we usually just end up playing the sport we are best at. We Americans will still love all the regional sports we played...but MLS will have a larger pool of talented athletes to draw from. And the rest of the Pro-4 will have selectively better athletes as well.

Different Strokes for Different Folks

Poor Tiger. What a terrible predicament for our favorite media darling and multimillionaire. I hope he can overcome this harsh criticism. Maybe he can sleep better knowing that: 1) The media is stupid 2) He's got the cabbage to produce a music video to make "Spaz" socially acceptable. I.e: "Phat" or "Stuupid". 3) As long as he wins...he's our hero! I think he'll rise above it. After all...he's a golf-god. and chick's dig the "Long Ball"!!!

World-record bass boated in California

The Lake's in SoCal, right? Can't you just see tomorrow's picture of 10,000 rabid anglers floating on a 70 acre lake....with Pamela Anderson leading the PETA demonstrations on shore....Maybe even a Green Peace intervention? I love SoCal.

Let's Go Crazy

I think it's all a brilliant marketing scheme MW's got to the heart of the matter. Besides, how could they possibly prosecute? The man has no name! Just a symbol, and that vague "Artist Formerly Known As"... thing. How would LA County Court call him to the stand?
