Barry Bonds signs with Yankees!

Man, when i read that headline, i called my boss before I read the article since we're both baseball nuts here in Houston. After I got off the phone, I opened the article and realised i had been spoofed. Obiviously, i had to call my boss back and changed my story. Nice one, Grum!!

Carl Edwards Heavily Penalized For Cheating, But Doesn't Have To Forfeit Vegas Win.

Would have loved to be there when Edwards got the news. He acts like the All-American, aww shucks kind of guy when things are going his way but whines like a girlyman when it doesn't. Was glad to see Robbie Gordon get a brake from Nascar, tho.

A Crushing Blow to Yao Ming and the Rockets

There's no way the Rockets can overcome this. If they make it to the playoffs, they'll never make it past the first round. They have a grueling schedule coming up in March. You should of heard the local sports radio chatter here in Houston. I thought I was listening to someone's funeral on Sports Radio 610 AM

The Epic of Craig Biggio

I watched Biggio from his rookie year until he retired in 2007. Used to go to the Dome before Minute Maid was built. The guy was fun to watch and he'll be missed by the people in Houston. Thanks Craig, it was a joy to watch ya.

Blockbuster: Tigers agree to aquire Cabrera, Willis from Marlins

Blockbuster trade? I dunno. Cabrera, no doubt he's awesome. But Willis went 10-15 with a 5.17 ERA. But then moving to beautiful Detroit Michigan (input sarcasm), might be what Dontrelle needs.

Dale Jr. docked 100 points and his crew chief suspended six races

i like Dale Jr. , having said that i agree with the penalty. Nascar has a zero tolerance rule in effect. The brackets had been modified after the initial inspection. Therefore, it was done with malicious intent. Good call by Nascar.

Gordon Takes Phoenix for the First Time, Ties "The Intimidator" for Career Victories.

Well, I disagree. I think Jeff Gordon is right up there with Earnhardt and all the rest. It's just a matter of time (more than likely , this year) that he'll pass Dale Sr. Like him or hate him, He's one of the top 5 drivers in Nascar.imho

Martin finds himself odd man out ... again

Great Race. Was glad to see Harvick but I heard the announcers plainly say that if there was a wreck on the last lap then the field would be frozen. Nascar got this one wrong. And would someone please stick a sock in daryll waltrips's piehole. I'm sick of "Boogity, Boogity, Boogity"

Tradin' paint over control of DEI

I look for Jr. to leave DEI as soon as he can and hook up with Childress or possibly even Hendricks. The guy is great for Nascar and the fans. Can't say the same for his step mom. Yes, i know it's her business but i believe she could do alot better job.

End of an era for Houston Baseball

I watched jeff bagwell in the astrodome when he was Rookie Of The Year up to his departure at minute maid park.Good ballplayer, for sure. I use to get pissed at him alot because he always seemed to be swinging for the fence. Quiet guy, never got into any trouble. But i think he's borderline for the Hall of Fame. He might make it in if it's weak year when he is eligble for induction.

My jaw dropped when i heard Andy resigned with the Yanks, I'm happy for him tho, he didn't want to leave New York in the first place. The Astro's never gave him any run support so good for him. It kills me to watch the Astro's. they can't ever seem to get it done.
