Bondsí homer No. 762 a bizarre mystery

What I'm waiting to hear is how long it takes before Denver's authorities look into why he was stoned to the bone at the Mile High stadium, um I mean Coors Field. While SF may be a bit liberal, I'm not aware of Denver allowing even medicinal chronic.

Why Liverpool shouldn't suck up to DIC

Actually dave2007, lower league teams are just as much a mixed bag as the upper levels. About 9 or 10 years ago, I was involved in the analysis an "unidentified American consortium" performed on Crystal Palace, who at the time were in what is now the Championship. Unfortunately, they had more debt that Derby does and we couldn't see any way to make it work, without much deeper pockets. As a local Rangers & Stars fan whose seen Hicks in action for years, the problem I have with a lot of US owners is that they are no different than your Average Joe, who's putting his Starbucks latte on his credit card. It just seems to me that most wealthy businessmen aren't willing to wait until they can actually afford the team, they'd rather leverage up and hope to hang on by the skin of their teeth. It's a wonder more of them don't go bankrupt. Actually, I guess it's us Average Joes who prevent them from going bankrupt, by supporting our teams no matter what. As a ManU fan, I just pray everyday that the Glazers, who I'd honestly never heard of before they bought ManU, can keep it together long enough to make it a truly successful run. Fortunately, I think they've managed to let Fergie and the boys do their jobs and have indirectly assisted in the continuing rise of ManU to the sports world stratosphere. Although, as some fans will argue, not that ManU needed the help.
