Nice work grum. You rock! Maybe now I can hope Pete Rose can get back into baseball?? I played against a pitcher like Ryan. The kid threw fast, the only problem was he had 0 control. I hated it, because you never knew where the ball was coming. Sure, it wasn't 95-100 mph, but at 12 yrs. old, the 65-70 mph fastball, looked it. Right, the Ryan Express. Go Bonds!!

Would it then be better if all were guilty until proven innocent? The Court of Public Opinion is just that, though, Opinion. Sometimes facts are involved, but most times, feeling overrides fact in that Court. I'll stay with truth and facts.

Nice job! Well done on a feat the other 99.9 % of us will never see, nonetheless imagine coming close to. As a 49er fan, if all these allegations pour sour on this great feat, maybe too, then we should discredit all of Bill Romanowski's achievements. 75 supplements 3 times a day?!!?! And when taken together gave him a coke high?! He had so many, they just called him RX. 756, Here he comes!!

'Hubba Hubba and Other Grunting Sounds'

I didn't know anything about this young lady either till this post. I'm sorry it happened, but as thx-1138 said, there's not much we can do to undo the situation. I've got a fix though. It's called CCW. It's called the TASER. Both are great deterrents for any would be assailant. Of course I know, she's only 18, and can't receive her CCW till 21, but the TASER would do the trick. It would be $1000 well spent for protection. Good Luck to her in all her endeavors!

Boy, 11, bags hog bigger than 'Hogzilla'

An 11 yr old and a .50 cal??? I know large grown men who've broken wrists from the recoil of a .50 cal, and then have decided never to shoot again. People get knocked on their butts shooting .50 cals. Hmmmm, something seems strange here. I do enjoy pork chops though. If this is true, I've never seen a hog that large, but it should be good eating.

Griffey Jr. to fan: You couldn't touch the threads on my jock!

Definition of "there" - a place or position of a person, place, or thing. ie: Ken Griffey hit the ball over there. Definition of "their" - plural possessive pronoun showing possession of something by multiple people or persons. ie: Their uniforms were dirty from playing all day on the field. I know, someone will say the "language police" were here. On topic: Maybe Griffey should go to this guy's place of employment and return the favor?

Remember when he played for them?

I remember both the Rice stint and Montana's trip to KC. He did take the team to a 11-5 mark his first year there and 9-7 his second before retiring. Remember also that Marcus Allen played for KC when Montana was there. Steve Bono, also from SF picked up in 1995 taking them to 13-3.

Panthers release Keyshawn Johnson

Yes, both of them. Elvis' years were short and tumultuous. He left as his son was diagnosed with either leukemia or cancer. Drunkenmiller too. Didn't do a whole lot. With Alex Smith though, we almost made playoffs this year. We beat the divison leading Seahawks both times, the second in a dramatic 2nd half comeback. I don't think they'll be a NE or San Diego, but I'm looking for a 10-6 or 9-7 season from them, as they showed signs of greatness last year, they just didn't have it to put out every game.

Don't send him to San Fran. We're just coming out of a our slump after "mr. wonderful" left because there was no "teamwork" and his QB was "gay". Then our QB went to Cleveland! Alex is doing fine and we're just starting to see some good things happen. The greatest thing that could happen is to get Debartolos and Yorks out of the front office. Players had sports drink " restrictions" and they were locked up under the wonderful DeBartolos?!!? Anyway don't send him!

Former 49er's LB Kevin Mitchell dead at 36.

Its times like these where I step back and really wonder, "You know, its not ALL it's cracked up to be." I'm only bringing in around 15/hr, but that's plenty for me knowing my job isn't dependent upon me being biggest, fastest, hardest hitting son of a gun at work. You know, Weedy, the more I think about it in situations like these, and probably because I'm getting older, I know it's not worth the millions and the fame. There are many other responsibilities inherent with that occupation. I too remember watching him play for my 49ers. A fan since 1981. Condolences to his family.

Sports Agent Convicted of Smuggling.

Let me get this straight: Dominguez, co-founder of TSI Inc. and prominent agent, faces up to 205 years for smuggling players big league baseball prospects from Cuba?!!? Smuggling is not the issue, it appears, but the direct link to baseball that made it a huge issue. I wonder the future for the recipient of the $225k, who IS a known drug dealer. Mr. Dominguez, Hint: Go to Mexico, walk over the border where drug snipers have their aim at our border patrol, and there is not much we do to illegals, then go to California, get an SSN from somebody and collect your money, Done. Illegal aliens come in every day to our country, but now when they "are linked to baseball," then it becomes egregious??? Wow.

Incident With Daughter Could Get Ukranian Swim Coach Lifetime Ban:

From :49 seconds to 1:01 it doesn't look good at all. I would never sit on MY daughter like that. Sure I understand she sat down, but it that would make me extremely uncomfortable. She is clearly hurt at the beginning from something he says, then he grabs for her towel/clothes as she tries to walk away. If this "incident" was a first between them, her body language would show as much. But, it's quite obvious it's not the first time. I only have seen the 2:13 segment and not the whole 7 minutes, so this is posted based on that. Even so, there is something not right here. Lifetime ban.

Former Steelers and Rams player is off to Iraq

It appears that some of us have forgotten 9/11. Sure, there's alot of things Bush has done I disagree with. My only question is this. With the hatred seen here toward Bush I just have one question: What or How would you do things differently? (not meant to be taken with an attitude, just a simple question). I know I would have shocked and awed the whole country until a white flag was flown. Then the question is this: Would that have stopped terrorism? The answer is resounding, NO! This war has been waged for nearly 5,000 in the Middle East, and no country, not even the U.S., will stop it. One must have a clear understanding of Middle Eastern history before waging war with them. All that said, whether it be the Civil, Revolutionary, War of 1812, WW1, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War or the current war, I am truly thankful for all of soldiers and their families who have sacrificed with their lives/limbs to keep this country free. No, I don't know all their names, but I'm still thankful to live free in Ohio, USA. btw: I don't remember anyone wanting to "hang" Clinton for oral sex, they just wanted him out of office.

Well said Luther70. There is a greater genetic difference between those with attached ear lobes as those with unattached ear lobes, than there is in the color of skin. Hey, best man/woman gets the job. One thing I haven't seen is the outrage that there aren't more white players in basketball or football, or that x % of the starters must be white or any other race based on society's percentages. Again, I don't care if you're purple, green, or yellow, if you're the best, you should take the position. Really, though, NASCAR is trying more diversification.

Drood, if what you're looking for is tolerance or respect for the homosexual lifestyle, one thing you may not want to do is become like what you think "homophobes" act like. In your desire to legitimize homosexuality, your bashing of others against it, makes you sound like some with whom you disagree. I do agree, it wasn't right what Hardaway said.

Doggone, the king of 2nd lets me down again. I was pullin' hard for Mark to take his 1st, and was kind of hopin' that Happy Harv' would pull a Michael Waltrip when DE Sr. took his 1st, but it just wan't meant to be. Matter of fact I was really upset at Happy for doin' it, but it is racing, and he broke line first. Maybe he should've asked for some "toyota juice." 2nd - I do think that without the crashes etc., we would see a decline in NASCAR #'s at the track. Why exactly do we watch NASCAR? The beautiful drafting ability? To see that clump of 43 cars travel in one pack? Pit stops? No, these races are watched to see "what happens next and how bad the next crash will be. Think about this, "A NASCAR race without a crash." Not very inspiring.

Dad intervenes during his son's wrestling match.

I agree with Bishop. Experience is the BEST teacher. I wrestled for 4 years in about the same as bracket as these wrestlers, and one thing I learned. NEVER, NEVER allow anyone to place you in the "honeymooner." This is an extremely painful position, but is only for 3 points, and not intended for a pin. It takes the wind out of you, and you can barely breathe. Meanwhile the ref can't hit the mat as your shoulder blades aren't touching the mat! Honeymooner - the controlled is back to the mat, and the controller has mounted, belly to belly, the controlled. The controller wraps up the head and extended arms of the controlled, meanwhile his legs pull up on the legs of the controlled. He then arches his back. I know, no wonder they call it the "honeymooner." I learned a huge lesson that day. IT HURTS!! Another thing. As wrong as this was, the thrown's father said "he lauched my boy 5 - 10 ft. in the air. Yes, he threw him, but it looked more like a couple of ft. backward, and only about a ft off the mat. Not condoning it, but it was a "little" exaggerated.
