Favre angry that NFL turns its back on Robinson

The action of drinking alcohol is a choice. However, nobody chooses to be an alcoholic. Alcoholism is the choice made to drink, over and over. It is not a disease. It is a sequence of choices made by an individual.

Steelers: Big Ben Injured In Motorcycle Accident

It doesn't really sound like he'll be OK: From The Pittsburgh Channel: "According to a police source, Roethlisberger suffered a broken jaw, broke his left sinus cavity, suffered a 9-inch laceration to the back of his head, lost many teeth and has severe injuries to his knees from hitting the pavement. A plastic surgeon has been called in, the source said." What a vastly and impressively stupid young man.

Houston, we have a soccer team!

That's really cool. I wish all MLS teams would have a similar recpetion, and I wish Seattle would get a MLS team.

Vince Young Fumbles an Opportunity

It's only reporters and fans that talk about the importance of humility. It's such crap. It's pretty clear to me that being a cocky asshole can really help someone's athletic career. Of course it goes both ways but anyone who says that being arrogantly sure of yourself is never a helpful thing is pretty much lying.

Ascending Colon

Bah. There's no way a closer should ever win the Cy Young award. Not that there is any real Cy Young candidate in the AL this year, but still, at least it went to a starter.

Move Over Dan Snyder

I laughed when I read this. And then I felt badly, because suicide is not funny. But then I laughed a little bit again.
