Not even a debate.

I don't even know how to ice skate and have never seen snow. But the NHL playoffs are clearly superior. 1. LESS commercials. The last ten seconds of NBA games seem to take 30 min. 2. NO celebrities in the front row. 3. Sudden Death Overtime. I grew up playing b-ball and still play to this day but on tv, hockey blows 'em away.

The International Pasttime

I love baseball. But I think that this is a love letter to MLB asking for the Expos hand in marriage. Also, everyone knows that futbol is king.

War fallout begins: Baseball scuttles Mariners-A's series in Japan.

Put your flags down people. War or no war, this was a dumb idea. It's a publicity stunt thought up by the boys in marketing. Instead of trying to appeal to kids here, they want to sell to a country that already has an established league. A country that resents the fact that we are taking all of their best players. Didn't a team of all-stars go during the winter? As for Mariner fans in Japan, I think they will follow Ichiro wherever and whenever he plays.

Sportsmanship 101

He was fouled before he got the rebound, so no triple-double for him. This was wrong, but the Jazz are no angels either, so these people deserve each other. Not defending Davis in any way, shape or form by the way. He is pretty young and stupid.

How does Barry Bonds hit a home run?

That was great. Nice link.

He told that "academic achievement" bullflop to Deion (Prime) too. Just imagine the times he had to repeat that to himself so he wouldn't laugh. He is going to get some calls in the NBA with those acting skills. Can you imagine if a teacher wanted to fail him, he/she would always and forever be the one who failed LeBron. Probably get blamed if he doesn't make it in the NBA. "If only he had passed that last home ec. sewing quiz......"

Forget Bad Boys II, they should worry about becoming Blazers East, lots of talent and no rings. When they earn a ring they will earn a nickname. Also, Artest is the only one that fits the Bad Boy image.

The Houston Astros signed second basemen Jeff Kent

As a fellow Astros fan, I'm thinking Biggio moves to CF if he can get new knees. They need to get rid of Hidalgo/Ward so he can play a decent LF. Definitely move to the outfield though. With Kent, I just wonder if that is a porno-stache or gay cop-stache? (from

That's nothing, the Houston Chronicle was still on the Enron bandwagon after the WSJ broke the news about their collapse. Wilbon is from Chicago, so Jordan is always going to get more than the benefit of the doubt. (kiss, kiss)

MVP on steroids

According to their website, Caminiti went on ESPN radio today saying that his comments were taken out of context. Did the MLBPA get to him? Or was he drunk when he talked to SI?

My new home page (for the next 2 months)

Does anyone know where I can print out some good brackets? I'm having trouble printing out the .pdf file at the FIFA website. (comes out too small or too big)

Sosa hits homer; Dave Duncan Whines; Matt Morris Blusters.

I agree with Duncan, Sosa is cut in the same mold as Ichiro... you know bloop singles and infield hits.

Firing the guy was not necessary, it was during BP not the actual game. Demoting him or keeping him away from the cd player would have been more reasonable punishment. First the Cubs put up tarps for "security reasons" and now this. You wonder why the Cubs and Sox are viewed as bush league operations.

Not worth millions, and he'll tell you so.

He is probably not going to see all of the $4.8 mil because NFL contracts are not guaranteed. That said, at least he's not letting the genius of JJ go to his head.

Nothing against Grady Little, but Boston is not the place for a rookie manager.
